Adrienne, her mother and four brothers comprise the Maloof Family dynasty whose multi-faceted sports and entertainment enterprise includes the Sacramento Kings, Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Sweeping Palms Entertainment (film, television & music) and Maloof Money Cup, the world's largest skateboard competition. Adrienne is also involved in several charitable organizations within her community including the School On Wheels program, the Good News Foundation, and the Camp Kindness program with the Sacramento ASPCA. While business certainly plays an extremely important role in Adrienne's life, her true passion is family. Married to prominent Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Nassif, she is a mom through and through, raising her three young sons, Gavin (7) and twins Christian and Colin (4).

· Camille Grammer - Camille is a multi-talented model, actress, dancer, and advocate, who calls Beverly Hills her home. Grammer began her career as a dancer on Club MTV.

Grammer was featured in the HDTV video dream sequence in David Niles' Broadway show "Dreamtime" at The Ed Sullivan Theater. Her hobbies include dancing, skiing, paddle boarding, tennis, hiking, and collecting rare first edition books, such as Pride and Prejudice, Works of Byron 1833, The Sound and the Fury, and the works of William Faulker and Roald Dahl.

· Kim Richards - Kim Richards is a former child actress who is best known as the "Disney Girl," starring in such films as " "Escape To Witch Mountain", and "No Deposit, No Return." She also appeared in various television series including "Nanny and The Professor," "James at 15," "Hello Larry," "Different Strokes," "CHiPS" and "Magnum PI." After co-starring in the feature film "Tuff Turf" with James Spader and Robert Downey Jr., Kim decided to go into early retirement and devote her time to raising a family. Kim has four children Brooke (24), Whitney (20), Chad (19), and Kimberly (15). Kim, who is currently single, is the older sister to fellow Housewife, Kyle Richards and Aunt to Paris and Nicky Hilton. She is currently working on various business endeavors including a jewelry and water bottle line that donates proceeds to charity. Kim loves the Beverly Hills lifestyle and says, "you can take the girl out of Beverly Hills but you can't take the Beverly Hills out of the girl."

· Kyle Richards - This sassy California native was born in Hollywood, California into an acting family. She landed her first role at the age four in Disney's "Escape to Witch Mountain," where she played the younger version of her sister, child actress and fellow Housewife Kim Richards. Her other sister is Kathy Hilton, mother to Nicky and Paris Hilton. Kyle's TV credits include "Little House on The Prairie," "Carter Country," "Down To Earth," and most recently "E.R." Film credits include "Halloween," and "The Watcher in the Woods." Kyle is an avid cancer advocate and recently completed a 68 -mile bike marathon to raise money to help fight the disease.

Her greatest passion is being a mother to her four daughters Farrah (21), Alexia (14), Sophia (10) and Portia (2). Kyle believes "If you obey all the rules, you'll miss all the fun."

· Lisa Vanderpump - This charming and witty Brit has only been in the U.S. for five years but has already made her mark in Beverly Hills. Lisa Vanderpump was born and raised in London but lived in Monte Carlo and the South of France before moving to California. Married to her husband Ken Todd for almost twenty-nine years, the couple has two children Pandora (24) and Max (18), plus their four dogs that they also consider their babies. While in Europe Lisa designed various homes, yachts and all of twenty six bars and restaurants that the couple owned in London. And Lisa hasn't slowed down now that she is in the states. She currently owns two restaurants that she created, Villa Blanca a celebrity hangout, which has been described as "the sexiest restaurant " in Beverly Hills and Sur in West Hollywood. Design is her passion, but she also writes a page each month for Beverly Hills Lifestyle magazine and she has a skin care line, "Epione." Lisa says Beverly Hills is "an oasis in Los Angeles" and loves the glamorous lifestyle this "fantasyland" enables. Additionally, she is candid about the fact that she spends every night in bed with a gigolo, also known as her pint-sized pup Giggy.

· Taylor Armstrong - Taylor Armstrong is a stunning Oklahoman native who moved to Beverly Hills seven years ago. She is married to venture capitalist Russell Armstrong and together, they have one four-year-old daughter named Kennedy. This Midwestern girl knows how powerful men in Beverly Hills work, so she makes sure that she is always looking her best because she knows that something younger and prettier can always come along and catch her husbands' eye. Taylor is not just a beauty; she has brains too and is passionate about both her business and philanthropic work. She founded her own SAP firm, eImplement Inc. and also volunteers for the 1736 Family Crisis Center. Taylor enjoys the chic lifestyle Beverly Hills has to offer but doesn't elude to the fact that "beautiful women are a dime a dozen." Even though she has adapted well to the luxurious lifestyle Beverly Hills offers, she has the "work hard, play hard" attitude that has enabled her to maintain her own identity.
