The new season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills doesn’t premiere until November 18, but the drama is already in full swing thanks to some newly released preview clips.

Anyone who saw The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 5 trailer knows that it contains teasers for plenty of shocking confrontations.

But the most jaw-dropping throwdown comes right at the end when somebody slaps cast member Lisa Vanderpump:

Thanks to an interview that Lisa gave E! News recently, we now know that that someone was Brandi Glanville.

Asked about the mysterious slap, Lisa all but confessed that she was struck by her on-again, off-again BFF Brandi. Asked if she was squaring off with Brandi in the scene, Lisa replied:


“I thought actually you wouldn’t be able to know who hit me, but seeing it now, yeah, it is a bit clearer.”

Yeah, if Bravo wanted that to be the big mystery of the season, they probably should’ve edited the trailer a bit more carefully.

In other Brandi news, last week Glanville introduced her 23-year-old boyfriend to the world. (And by “introduced,” we mean shared a pic online; we never learned his name.)

Well, it now seems the May-December romance wasn’t strong enough to last a month. 

“No more 23 yr old fun while it lasted,” Brandi tweeted recently. 

Sadly, Brandi’s relationship and her latest return to the single life both happened too recently to be featured in season five. Can we just get this girl her own 24-hour reality series like The Truman Show already?

As always, you can watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online to relive some of Brandi’s boldest, booziest moments.
