The new RHOBH star: 7 Things to know about Kathryn Edwards (PHOTOS)

Sarah grew up in Monterey, CA and now lives in Los Angeles. When she's not writing, you can find her enjoying a good book, fine wine, sunflowers and long walks on the beach.

The new RHOBH star Kathryn Edwards is about to bring so much more drama to the show

Look out, Beverly Hills, there's a new housewife in town!

The ever-so-graceful exits of Kim Richards and Brandi Glanville left a gaping hole in the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast, but Bravo has replaced the reality stars with a new housewife named Kathryn Edwards, according to Us Weekly, in addition to the previously announced Erika Jayne.

While it remains to be seen if Edwards can keep us as entertained — and as agitated — as Richards and Glanville did during their residency, we do know that the newest cast addition certainly looks the Beverly Hills part.

Here's a little more that we've learned about Edwards so far.

1. She's a footballer's wife

Times two actually. Edwards married former NFL running back Marcus Allen in 1993 and is now married to former NFL linebacker Donnie Edwards.

2. She's already bringing the pain with veteran cast members

According to sources, Edwards is already butting heads big time with RHOBH OG Kyle Richards. "There is drama between Kyle and Kathryn because of her friendship with Faye Resnick," an insider told Radar Online. "Kathryn has a lot of history with Faye."

You probably remember Resnick as a RHOBH friend in Season 3, when she spent a ton of time sticking her nose where it didn't belong and mucking up her decades-long friendship with Richards.

Game on.

3. She gets around

The Edwards family are world travelers, so hopefully she can take those sometimes-trying Real Housewives vacays like a champ.

4. She supports the U.S. military

From the looks of both Edwards' and her husband's Instagrams, the couple is very active in supporting veterans and often attends events supporting World War II vets.

5. She has a beyond-adorable pup

We're seriously hoping for some RHOBH appearances by Otis the French Bulldog.

6. She's already in with Lisa Vanderpump

Everybody knows that Lisa Vanderpump is definitely a woman you want on your side. For Edwards' sake, hopefully their alliance lasts the season.

7. She doesn't mind a little drinkie-poo every now and again

Great weekend so far...and it's only Friday. I love my friends.

But we're pretty sure that's a prerequisite for joining any Real Housewives cast at this point.

What do you think of Bravo's latest pick? Are you ready for Season 6?
