The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has returned, and the drama is more high stakes than ever before.
In the preview for the hit Bravo series' 12th season, Erika Jayne continues to hold court at the center of the chaos, as she's joined by returning cast members Garcelle Beauvais, Sutton Stracke, Crystal Kung Minkoff, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Dorit Kemsley, and "friend of" Kathy Hilton.
"The last couple of times I saw you, you were pretty tipsy," a concerned Beauvais, 55, tells the former Chicago actress, 50 — who has been embroiled in multiple lawsuits after her estranged husband, Tom Girardi, was accused of running his former law firm like a ponzi scheme and funneling the money into their lavish lifestyle.
The clip then shows a montage of Jayne seemingly intoxicated and falling over backwards, as she exclaims, "Oh my god, I'm lit!" before best friend Rinna, 58, can be heard sternly stating, "Pick your antidepressants or you drink, but you can't do both."
As Radar originally reported, the Rinna Beauty founder addressed the issue of her closet ally's alleged drinking problem with the group — without Jayne — at a coffee shop, but producers were forced to stop filming because the entertainer was not there to defend herself.
The Pretty Mess author also appears to still be coming under fire from the other ladies about her alleged involvement in her former spouse's messy legal situations, as she can be heard viciously yelling at Minkoff, "You want to be on the side of the victims because you think that's cool!"
The second season housewife, 36, fires back at Jayne, "I don't think it's cool!" before the "Xxpen$ive" vocalist screams, "I don't give a f**k about anyone else but me!"
"If we are going to talk about Erika's behavior, are we going to talk about everybody in this group?" Jayne tells new housewife Diana Jenkins — who will make her RHOBH debut along with Will Smith's ex-wife, Sheree Zampino, as a friend of in the upcoming season.
The highly anticipated season also sees the fallout from Kemsley's terrifying October 2021 robbery, where she was held at gunpoint, as well as the shocking sibling drama between Richards and Hilton.
"You said some things about this beautiful sister of yours, I'm sorry Kathy — you are not going to get away with it," Rinna tells the socialite, 63, while sitting beside Hilton's shaken little sister, 53. "I feel like you hate me or something, how could you say those things?" Richards pleads to her sister.
Hilton will also have her time in the hot seat, as Jayne can be heard telling the Halloween actress she wants the I Want To Be a Hilton star to be held accountable for her actions since she herself has been "publicly pummeled" this year by fellow reality stars and the public for her own scandal.
Although it's not entirely clear what Hilton said or did that the performer was referring to, the fan favorite star recently came under fire for an alleged derogatory comment she made about a club staffer during the cast's trip to Aspen.
