What can we expect from season three of the Bravo network's "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills"?
Although drama has already surfaced with the bitter divorce battle between housewife Adrienne Maloof and husband Dr. Paul Nassif, cast member Kyle Richards explained that more issues arise during the show.

"Some days I'm excited [about the new season]," Richards said. "Some days I'm scared. I'm telling you, wherever we go, problems seem to follow."
Although reality TV has assisted in the demise of many marriages, including fellow co-stars Kelsey and Camille Grammer, Richards is confident that her marriage with Mauricio Umansky will withstand the cameras.
"I am like a lion with my family, my cubs," Richards, 43, told People magazine at the Oct. 11 grand opening of her Kyle by Alene Too boutique in Beverly Hills. "I'm very, very, very protective. If I ever felt like something was being affected in any way by the show, I would just walk away in a millisecond," she said.
Richards said Maloof is "doing as well as can be expected" and explained that viewers can't fully understand couple's marriage just by watching them interact on the small screen.
"I think a lot of people liked [watching their bickering on TV] and thought it was cute, but obviously there was more going on behind closed doors than we realized," she explained.
The "Beverly Hills" housewife believes that deciding to partake in a reality TV show should not be a split decision.
"My suggestion to anybody who [wants to do] a reality show, if you have cracks in your marriage, don't do one of these. You have to be really, really solid in order to do a reality show like this. I feel solid."
Richards told Celebuzz that she gave Maloof the following advice: "Just keep it together for the kids' sake, get along and and try and be as copacetic as possible,"
Season three of the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premieres Nov. 5.
