Production on the 12th season of the hit Bravo reality series The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been temporarily suspended after several cast members tested positive for COVID-19. Erika Jayne, Garcelle Beauvais, and Lisa Rinna and at least one crew member have tested positive, forcing producers to temporarily shut down filming until the cast and crew have completed quarantine and recovered.
Beauvais revealed the news of her own diagnosis in a video she posted to Instagram, saying, “I found out that I tested positive for COVID. I feel okay, I’m sure I will continue to feel okay. My boys are being tested, so far they’ve tested negative. We’re going to continue testing them,” she added, referring to her 14-year-old twins, Jax and Jaid.
This is the second time production on the reality series had to come to a temporary halt due to COVID-19 concerns. The previous shutdown came just over a year ago in November 2020 when a crew member tested positive; and it was later revealed that Dorit Kemsley, Kyle Richards and Kathy Hilton had also contracted COVID-19 at the time of the halt.
