The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5, which premieres tonight, is getting a major dose of drama from a woman who thrives on it: Lisa Rinna.
The Melrose Place and Days of Our Lives alumna, along with fellow daytime standout Eileen Davidson, gives the Bravo show a jolt of star power.
Suffice it to say, Rinna and Davidson are not intimidated by Kyle Richards, Kim Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Brandi Glanville and Yolanda Foster.
Rinna, who has also appeared on Dancing With the Stars and Celebrity Apprentice, added that the Real Housewives is quite similar to Melrose Place.
"This is very close to doing Melrose Place without a script in your hand," Rinna said, adding that to her, "like everything in life, it's all about timing."
"It's funny, when I went on to Melrose Place it was year five."
"This is year five of Housewives. To be honest with you, after talking about it with my husband, it's been a really great gig for me. It felt right, to be honest with you."
"I like an adventure, I was looking for an adventure."
The adventure starts this evening on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 Episode 1, with Kyle Richards' White Party serving as the backdrop.
It sound be good, too, if the previews are any indication.
In The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills trailer, Rinna is seen throwing wine, and a wine glass it appears, at co-star Kim Richards, who recoils in abject terror.
Lisa won't dish too many details, but would say, "I can't say it's anything I would have ever expected or imagined to ever have happen in my life."
"Most of my friends," she reflects, "have never heard me raise my voice or get angry, really … what I learned is I am fiercely protective of my family."
Color us intrigued for the new season, to say the least.
