Sometimes it kinda sucks to be so on top of "The Real Housewives" news. While others are reacting with surprise, glee or disgust to Bravo's official confirmation of the Beverly Hills Housewives, we at Zap2it posted most of the cast back in March save one newer addition.
Bravo confirms our report that Las Vegas hotel queen, Adrienne Maloof, "Frasier" star Kelsey's ex-wife, Camille Grammer, Paris Hilton's aunts, Kim and Kyle Richards and restaurateur Lisa Vanderpump are officially members of the 90210 cast.
