The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are allegedly only a week or two into filming scenes for season 4, but the drama is already out of control. According to Radar Online, Brandi Glanville and Lisa Vanderpump confront Kyle Richards, on camera, about her husband Mauricio Umansky's cheating ways. Apparently, Brandi has evidence of his adultery and she and Lisa felt compelled to tell their fellow cast member and "friend" all about it ... while the tape rolled, of course.

Understandably, Kyle felt blindsided and devastated by the news -- she reportedly called producers right after the ambush and tried to quit the show. Fortunately, for Kyle fans at least, they were able to talk her off the ledge and she's sticking around ... for now.

I'm not sure how to handle this news. On the one hand, I'm all in on the SCANDAL. Perfect husband caught cheating? Sold. Friends out his bad behavior to his unsuspecting wife? Awesome.

On the other, I can't help (despite my best efforts) to remember that these are real people, that Mauricio's cheating will affect real-life kids, not just some young actors on a sitcom.

But really, is anyone surprised that Mauricio's been supposedly messing around? He came across pretty slimy last season -- berating Brandi and defending Adrienne's gross behavior just so he could get the listing to sell her house -- and it wouldn't shock me in the slightest if he's got someone on the side.

It's horrible news for Kyle, but wonderful news for the show.

And as a fan of RHOBH, it's hard to know whether to hope it's true, or hope it's not.

What do you hope?
