Behind the Scenes of THR's 'Real Housewives' Cover Shoot (Video)
What happens when you get some of reality television’s biggest female stars together for a photoshoot? Plenty of glam and a dash of drama.
The Hollywood Reporter’s cover shoot with the stars of Bravo’s Real Housewives series in Hollywood brought together some of the most interesting and outspoken women from five of the shows.
When the women of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills got together for their shoot, the drama from this season of the show seemed to spill over into the shoot. Kim Richards, who has developed a big beef with newbie Brandi Glanville, was not open to sitting next to her for the shot.
“To me, she doesn’t exist,” Richards told THR of her opinion of Glanville.
“Brandi just says it like it is, without apology,” said Camille Grammer about her new castmate.
During the cover photoshoot, which featured one woman from each cast, New York City castmember Ramona Singer could not pose for the shoot without her music. The outspoken star also served as the unofficial bartender during the shoot, offering up glasses of wine to her fellow Bravo celebrities.
“I think I’ve tempered myself a little. I know I’m not quite unfiltered yet, I don’t think I ever will be, but I’m learning,” Singer told THR.

Many of the women admitted that it’s been difficult to watch themselves on television sometimes.
“I think for me the hardest part of it is people misjudging me, or they see a part of a scene and they think that’s your character,” said Kim’s sister Kyle.
