In this season's opening episode, there was no shortage of fireworks. From the tiff between Adrienne Maloof's personal chef Bernie and Lisa Vanderpump to the palpable friction between siblings Kyle and Kim, it was clear this season will be the most dramatic yet. And joining the spirited 6 original cast members are supporting "friends" Dana and Brandi.
First, we have Dana Wilkey. Party planner to the stars and the person responsible for the $60,000 tea party Taylor Armstrong threw for daughter Kennedy's 4th birthday. But there is more to Dana than just her celeb driven soiree's. She graduated from USC with honors and is a successful entrepreneur. In addition to the party planning business, Dana also founded the Adwil Agency, a web application development company and product placement firm, and is an active supporter of various charitable organizations including: 1736, The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids organization, and IPalpiti. It will be interesting to see what kind of a reception she will receive from the existing members of the Beverly Hills clique.
Next up is a woman who's name you may not recognize but her reputation precedes her. Her name is Brandi Glanville, ex-wife of Eddie Cibrian who is best known for his role as Jesse Cardoza on CSI: Miami. For those of you who have no access to internet or TV, Eddie left Brandi to be with country phenom LeAnne Rhimes. Brandi's very public divorce and DUI arrest last October kept most gossip bloggers in business. If next weeks previews are any indication of what to expect this season, I'm pretty sure Brandi is going to be the most hated housewife yet.
