Kim Richards' Sobriety Should Be Off Limits

In a sad plot twist, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is down one soap opera actress. Eileen Davidson announced this weekend that she will not be returning to the show next season.

Everyone had a bit of an inkling after Camille Grammer shared this photo from a filming weekend in Vegas and Eileen was nowhere to be seen. She took to social media to announce her departure and to explain why she came to that decision.

Eileen shared on Instagram, “After a lot of thought, because of my crazy scheds at YR (Young & the Restless) and Dool (Days of Our Lives), I’ve decided it’s best for me and my fam to step away from being a housewife for now. But ya never know! I might be popping in to see what the ladies are up to from time to time! Thanks for your love and support guys!!!!”

Doing double duty on two soaps will obviously be a lot to juggle for Eileen, so we get it. We’re still sad to see her go, though! She did give that small glimmer of hope that she might do a little filming, so there’s that!

Although Eileen is leaving, we’ll be getting a new Housewife and possibly a few new “friends of” this season. We know from Camille’s photo that Adrienne Maloof is making an appearance and so is Camille. We’ll also be meeting a friend of Dorit‘s, Claudine Keane. And, according to E! News, Teddi Mellencamp (daughter of John Cougar Mellencamp)  is also going to be introduced this season, but it’s not yet known if she’ll be full time or a friend. Bravo loves to keep us guessing until the shows air, so we probably won’t know anything concrete for a while.
