The addition of Carlton and Joyce to the cast is significant because it is the first time women of color have been introduced to what was before a white-washed cast (like with Real Housewives of Orange County
, New York
, and New Jersey

and Suddenly Susan
. She is now married to David Gebbia, who is the owner of multiple successful businesses. She has three children between the ages two and 11 years old and is currently very active with Wildlife Waystation, a non-profit sanctuary that benefits wild and exotic animals.
Joyce is also an actress; she appeared in Dude, Where's My Car?
, and starred in NBC's Siberia
this past summer. She is a former Miss World Puerto Rico and Miss Universe Puerto Rico, and was second runner-up at the Miss Universe pageant in 1998. She is married to Oscar nominated producer Michael Ohoven and they have two sons.
Check out the season 4 trailer below:
The trailer indicates that, at some point, there will be a shift in alliances, especially in the relationship between Lisa and Brandi, who spent the last two seasons becoming fast friends.
It also shows Kyle being the target of vicious rumors that her husband, Mauricio, is cheating on her. But her sister Kim seems to be thriving in her sobriety, having fun and standing up for herself instead of letting her sister or other cast members just walk all over her. And Yolanda is dealing with overcoming Lyme disease, something that she says is the most difficult thing she has ever struggled with in her life.
