The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills -- which will be the sixth edition of the Bravo's popular The Real Housewives reality franchise and been ordered by the network in March -- will star Adrienne Maloof, Camille Grammer, Kim Richards, Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump and Taylor Armstrong.

Maloof and Grammer had been reported to be part of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' cast since Bravo's March pickup announcement while Vanderpump and the Richard sisters' participation had been reported even earlier in January.

Maloof is the wife of former Dr. 90210 plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Nassif and her family owns everything from the NBA's Sacramento Kings franchise to Las Vegas' Palms hotel and casino.  The couple has three young sons.

Grammer, a former Playboy model, is the estranged wife of former Cheers and Frasier star Kelsey Grammer.  She filed for divorce from her husband in July, citing irreconcilable differences.  They were married for 13 years and have two children together.

Kim and Kyle Richards are the sisters of Kathy Hilton, the mother of socialite and reality star Paris Hilton.  Both sisters -- who like Kathy, are heirs to the Hilton family fortune -- are former child actresses.  Kim, the older sister, is currently single and has four children, the youngest of whom is 15.  Kyle is married to Mauricio Umansky, a high-end realtor, and has four daughters, the youngest of whom is only 2.

Vanderpump is the owner of Villa Blanca, a Beverly Hills restaurant, and Sur, a West Hollywood restaurant.  Born and raised in London, she has only lived in the United States for five years.  She has been married to Ken Todd for almost 29 years and they have two grown children.

Armstrong is an Oklahoma native who moved to Beverly Hills seven years ago and operates her own technology consulting firm.  She is married to venture capitalist Russell Armstrong and they have a 4-year-old daughter named Kennedy

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is being produced by Evolution Media -- the same production company behind the franchise's Orange County installment -- with  Douglas Ross, Greg Stewart, Kathleen French, Dave Rupel and Alex Baskin serving as executive producers.

- Taylor Armstrong - Taylor Armstrong is a stunning Oklahoman native who moved to Beverly Hills seven years ago. She is married to venture capitalist Russell Armstrong and together, they have one four-year-old daughter named Kennedy. This Midwestern girl knows how powerful men in Beverly Hills work, so she makes sure that she is always looking her best because she knows that something younger and prettier can always come along and catch her husbands' eye. Taylor is not just a beauty; she has brains too and is passionate about both her business and philanthropic work. She founded her own SAP firm, eImplement Inc. and also volunteers for the 1736 Family Crisis Center. Taylor enjoys the chic lifestyle Beverly Hills has to offer but doesn't elude to the fact that "beautiful women are a dime a dozen." Even though she has adapted well to the luxurious lifestyle Beverly Hills offers, she has the "work hard, play hard" attitude that has enabled her to maintain her own identity.
