She is being credited as the franchise’s first Asian-American Housewife on RHOBH.
Crystal Kung Minkoff is joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as a full-time Housewife for Season 11, according to an exclusive report from PEOPLE.
Married to director Rob Minkoff, the magazine reports that Crystal is joining RHOBH for Season 11, which has already started filming. The couple married in 2007 and share two young children together.
While it is not yet known how she will be introduced to the cast, considering her husband’s ties to Hollywood, the women are most likely familiar with her anyways. (Hint: Think original Lion King.)
As previously reported, Teddi Mellencamp confirmed her exit from RHOBH just a few weeks ago and Denise Richards has also confirmed her departure, leaving a few open spots on the cast. (Kathy Hilton is also rumoured to be joining as a Friend Of, while rumours that Caitlyn Jenner was joining the cast were shot down.)
Crystal Kung Minkoff is set to replace Teddi Mellencamp (pictured) on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Crystal looks fabulous, seems well-connected, and is sure to bring a great flare to the show so we are excited to get to know her when Season 11 premieres on Bravo next year. You can learn more about her by checking out her official Instagram page.
RHOBH Season 11 is currently in production with Crystal Kung Minkoff, Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley, Erika Girardi, Garcelle Beauvais, and Lisa Rinna and is expected to debut on Bravo in early 2021.
