Oscar-nominee and “Bride of Chucky” star Jennifer Tilly joins “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”

Tilly is friends with Sutton "Name 'em, name 'em, name 'em" Stracke.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is getting a little glitzier and a bit more glamorous with some cast shake-ups, including an Oscar-nominated actress.

After three seasons, Crystal Kung Minkoff and her arch-rival/one season wonder Annemarie Wiley are out, while former Netflix exec Bozoma Saint John is in. But more importantly, we got Tilly.

Fans of RHOBH no doubt noticed Oscar-nominee (Best Supporting Actress for Bullets Over Broadway, baby) Jennifer Tilly palling around with Sutton Stracke last season and in season 14, Tilly is officially joining the cast as a friend.

The Bride of Chucky star is in good company, as fan favorite Kathy Hilton will reprise her role as Kyle Richards' sister/ a friend of the Housewives.

The rest of the diamond-holders remain relatively the same: we've got HBIC Garcelle Beauvais, comeback kid Erika Jayne, a recently separated Dorit Kemsley finally bringing an interesting storyline, problematic pot-stirrer Kyle, and southern socialite Sutton.

Season 13 of RHOBH was the most watched in the series' history and ranks among the most viewed seasons of all Housewives franchises. Spurred by the impending separation from the show's central couple, Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky, the season had a number of memorable, meme-able moments, from Kyle's weed party featuring an unhinged performance by Denise Richards, to a trip to Spain to spread the ashes of Sutton's friend and mentor, modern dance pioneer Merce (in the purse) Cunningham, featuring a surprisingly hinged performance by a blackout drunk Erika.

As with every Housewives season, there were also a number of lows to balance the dizzying highs. Crystal's been hanging on by a thread, but a weird rivalry with Annemarie left her twisting in the wind. While Annemarie not returning should come as a shock to no one since her main contribution was her even weirder obsession with Sutton's tiny esophagus.

Dorit's return would be a shock if the news of her separating from husband of nine years PK Kemsley hadn't hit the interwebs earlier this month. Dorit's been treading water as a Housewife the last few seasons but nothing shakes up a storyline like a separation — a separation that Erika Jayne called from a mile away, by the way.

Kyle seemed ambivalent about coming back to RHOBH during the reunion, an ambivalence some viewers shared, but as the only original cast member, she's perhaps reluctant to go gently into that good night. Still, her reticence and deflection over her relationship with both Mauricio and country singer Morgan Wade got real old, real fast last season, so we'll see what she's bringing this time around.

As for Garcelle, Sutton, and Erika: no notes Those three are really holding this franchise together with their wig glue, but they shouldn't have to do all the work. With Kathy, Tilly, and the season's new diamond, hopefully they won't have to.

Sadly, there's not premiere date yet for season 14 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but it can't come soon enough.
