While Lisa Rinna is currently quarantined at home with her husband, Harry Hamlin, and their two daughters, Delilah Belle and Amelia, she is still taking time to plug the upcoming season of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," which kicks off April 15 on Bravo. Of the new season, Lisa Rinna says, "It’s exciting. It's shocking. It's everything that I think you want this season to be," Lisa Vanderpump quit last season after her fellow housewives failed to support her in the wake of her brother's suicide death, so two new housewives have been cast for the show's 10th season.

Joining the cast will be actor Garcelle Beauvais - best known for her roles as Francesca "Fancy" Monroe on The WB sitcome "The Jamie Foxx Show" and Valerie Heywood on the ABC police drama "NYPD Blue" - and party planner Sutton Stracke. Rinna told Variety that she has known both of the new cast members for years. They will join Rinna, Kyle Richards, Erika Jayne Gerardi (who appeared as Roxie Hart in the musical "Chicago" until the show was closed due to the coronavirus outbreak), Dorit Kemsley, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and Denise Richards.

According to the trailer, the most dramatic storyline could come from Charlie Sheen's ex Denise Richards, who apparently sent a cease-and-desist letter to former housewife Brandi Glanville - who will return along with Camille Grammer, Kim Richards, Adrienne Maloof, and Eileen Davidson - calling for Glanville to silence talk about a rumored affair between the two. According to Glanville, she and longtime friend Denise Richards were involved sexually for six months, until Richards' husband, Aaron Phypers, got wind. Glanville says the marriage was an open one, but both Richards and Phypers dispute that.

"She's not who she pretends to be," Glanville says in the season 10 trailer of Richards, who later tells the housewives "I don't deserve this," and reportedly refused to continue filming due to gossip from the cast. Although filming for the season of "RHOBH" - including a cast trip to Rome - had already wrapped before the coronavirus outbreak, according to Rinna, cast members have yet to complete confessionals for the season, and it is unclear when the reunion will be shot. Host Andy Cohen is currently recovering from the COVID-19 virus.

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave - the daughter of John Mellencamp - who spent the season pregnant, was also the subject of drama, for all the wrong reasons. In the trailer, Stracke tells Mellencamp Arroyave, "Teddi, you are a little boring. Are we supposed to be honest, or not?" She has faced the same criticism in earlier seasons, ever since she joined the "RHOBH" cast in 2018. Mellencamp Arroyave, who married her husband, Edwin Arroyave, in 2011, gave birth to a daughter, Dove, on February 25. Dove joins siblings Cruz and Slate.
