The pandemic struck Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in the middle of shooting their next season. Now multiple stars are out due to the virus and that halted production.

TMZ reports that the new crop of cast members have seen an outbreak of COVID-19 amongst the ranks. This forced production to shut down. Sources say that Lisa Rinna, Erika Jayne, Garcelle Beayvais and several crew members tested positive.

Sources connected to the series tell TMZ … late last week Lisa RinnaErika Jayne, Garcelle Beauvais and a member of the crew all tested positive, causing producers to suspend all filming. Thankfully, we’re told symptoms are mild for all involved … and they’ve all been vaccinated.

Thankfully, everyone was vaccinated, but it still doesn’t stop the virus from taking hold. Those positive tests were certainly nothing that they expected, because a hiatus can push production back considerably.


Everyone will be monitored and reevaluated for a couple of weeks. Then they will hopefully get back to work. This isn’t the first time that a television show was halted because of a COVID-19 outbreak, and it unfortunately won’t be the last.
