Bravo has announced the third season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will premiere on November 5 at 9PM ET/PT.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' fifth season will feature new Housewife Yolanda H. Foster in addition to returning stars Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Taylor Armstrong, Adrienne Maloof, Kim Richards, and Brandi Glanville.
Foster is a former model and the wife of multi Grammy award winning producer, David Foster.
Absent from the reality series' third-season regular cast is Camille Grammer. However, Grammer is set to make some special appearances throughout the season along with her new friend Marisa Zanuck, according to the network.
"I was not fired," Grammer told E! News at the time. "I didn't want to expose my personal life so much anymore. I had done that and was over that. I care very much for my family and children and that show tends to take me away from them. I really want to focus on them right now."
"I just chose to keep most things private in general. I'm in a good place and I've had such an interesting experience and such a learning experience being on this show. I've really enjoyed my time working with the girls and I will miss the camaraderie. I enjoyed the producers and Bravo. I'm upset about that part."
"Producers reluctantly decided to sign Taylor for the next season and I think a lot of their decision was based purely on the fact that they felt bad just dumping her after all she went through last year," a source told RadarOnline at the time, referencing how Armstrong's late husband Russell Armstrong committed suicide in August 2011 about a month after Taylor filed for divorce.
"But, they are definitely looking to phase her out of the show gradually. The feeling is that Taylor won't really be bringing much to the table and that she's not needed anymore."
