RHOBH star Crystal Minkoff has teased a dramatic season 12, and claims one cast member was done with them all after filming wrapped.
The newer housewife, who is married to filmmaker Rob Minkoff, is now on her second series and says it took a while to get used to filming as the women can be tough to deal with.

Asked what fans can expect from the upcoming episodes, Crystal told The Sun: “Oh God, a lot of screaming, a lot of four letter words, but we have a lot of fun. I feel like this year I was lucky to really get to know people on the show better.
“I think last year I was just like a deer in headlights, these girls were tough and I’m a little less tough, but I hold my own.”
Teasing a new feud after filming ended, she spilled: “We have a group text. Someone pulled themselves out of it the day we finished filming.
“I can’t say who, but I’m going to say it wasn’t Erika. I get it when you’re filming day in day out, it’s so much. And then there’s a lot going on in the crazy group text.
“But it’s hysterical. Someone left. But I talk to everyone, sometimes you don’t get along great but every relationship is different and it’s all based on how much time you spend with that person.”
Quizzed about the cast’s feelings towards Erika amid her legal troubles, she admitted: “It’s a very mixed bag. You know, there’s some people that are friends [with her], some that are not.
“I don’t even know if that’s about all those scandals and stuff. I feel like some people have different personalities that don’t mesh well.”
Crystal spoke to The Sun while supporting cast member Sutton Stracke at her ‘Cashmere & Caviar’ party for the launch of her new line at the SUTTON store in West Hollywood this week, with Garcelle Beauvais also in attendance.
Kyle skipped out on the event due to “personal reasons” despite being invited, but Crystal insists her relationship with sister Kathy is back on track after their argument.
Asked about the dramatic trailer, she said: “When is there not feuding? I mean, they were all together right after we filmed. There were baby showers and birthdays.
“It’s so funny because if someone knew I was arguing with my brother, no-one would ask me six months later, ‘How’s your relationship?’
“Of course this is my brother and I’m allowed to fight with him and I’m allowed to have a conflict. And that’s part of being family. And I think people forget that, that it’s sort of natural.”
Sutton later added on the row between Kyle and Kathy: “I think that’s family business and I’m gonna mind my biscuits,” but she admitted she’s “counting down the days” until the premiere.
“We go on two big anchor trips [skiing and to Mexico],” she said. “This season really is hot and cold. It’s fun and then it’s not fun.”
Laughing, she added: “My skin has grown thicker and thicker and thicker and my mouth has gotten louder and louder and louder.
“But It’s all in good fun at the end of the day. And we know we respect each other, most of us do anyway,” adding that she and Erika still have a “lot to work on”.
Real Housewives fans went wild after the explosive season 12 trailer dropped, filled with brawls and tears.
At one point, Lisa Rinna cryptically warned someone to “be careful because she’s not who she says she is.”
Erika Jayne – who is currently in the middle of an embezzlement scandal – added in a voiceover: “It’s my life to burn down.”
Additionally, the trailer gave fans a glimpse into Dorit Kemsley’s scary home invasion, and the cast’s two big vacations.
The clip concluded with an emotional conversation between sisters Kyle Richards and Kathy Hilton.
Kyle said through tears: “I feel you hate me or something,” as co-star Lisa tried to intervene and get them to make up.
