The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 7 Episode 1 Recap: Stronger Together

by at .

Returning to the airwaves after what seems like an eternity The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 7 Episode 1 featured familiar faces.

The long awaited premiere also revealed a new house guest of Lisa Vanderpump's -- one with a strong celebrity connection, no less.

Who could that be?!

If you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online, you know there's no shortage of star power with this posh crew from the 90210.

However, lots of people were calling the first episode of the brand-new season a snooze-fest, and a slow starter.  

When you're on RHOBH, you're supposed to crank up the drama to at least 14 -- and this is one of the many reasons we miss Brandi Glanville so much. 

This season introduced new cast member, Dorit Kemsley, who hails from both New York and London, along with her husband, Paul Kemsley.

Dorit and her husband, randomly, live with Brit sensation, Boy George, and to be honest, bringing BG onto the show -- Boy George, that is; not Brandi Glanville -- would make things a lot more interesting. 

The lovely Yolanda Foster is also gone from the show, and to be honest, it didn't look like the other Housewives were mourning her absence too hard. 

Another cast mate missing from this season is the remaining six feet of Kyle Richards' hair, which is probably sitting at the bottom of a garbage bag somewhere, crying over its loss. 

Kyle chopped her 'do back in August, but it was still a shock to see the new style during production. 

The premiere basically centered around Erika Jayne's 45th birthday party, which was like a Sex and the City meets Studio 54 meets Boogie Nights redux (without Mark Wahlberg's penis, sadly). 

For her birthday, Erika received a pricey Marc Chagall painting -- somewhere in the ballpark of 80k -- and a black panther Cartier ring among some other crazy gifts. 

The ladies and company gathered at Pump to kick off the celebration with some libations, and truly the only drama we think we're going to see this season is the fight brewing between Lisa Vanderpump and Lisa Rinna. 

After sniffing out the dramatics, the new kid on the block, Dorit, said, "I don’t like the idea of women treating women terribly and bullying." 

Honey, do you know where you are? 

You're in the jungle, baby.

The party moved back to Jayne's house, where she was very inappropriately dressed for a Studio 54-themed party. 

Erika was bedecked in a full-length black gown, which doesn't exactly scream Disco Ducklips.

The dress itself might've been the most interesting bit of the party, however -- because Jayne was wearing a diamond-encrusted thong underneath. 

That's how you do 45, friends. 

The only real drama that occurred -- this episode! -- was when Rinna and Vanderpump slightly faced off on the dance floor because of last season's carryover drama. 

It's a brand-new season, ladies ... better start churning out some brand-new drama!
