Real Housewives casting director Melissa Stanforth said there’s no shortage of “socialites” and “wannabes” who want to be on Real Housewives, but she shared, she typically finds “new blood” via her professional sports and high-end real estate connections.
Melissa said she asks potentials, “What’s off the table?,” to gauge if reality TV would be a good fit. “[If they] say, ‘This, this, this, and that,’ I say, ‘You shouldn’t be on reality TV.'” Every once in a while, however, a perfect Real Housewives candidate just falls into their laps.
Andy asks Kim if she is competing on the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars. Neither confirming nor denying, she says, “I’m so excited. There’s so many fantastic opportunities that are coming up this year for me. I’m celebrating my fortieth year in the industry. We got a lot of great things going on, lots of fun stuff happening.” That sounds like “yes but I’m not allowed to say so” to me.

“It was nice of Yolanda to reach out and invite us. Quite a lot has gone on in this group, so people are feeling awkward and unsettled for sure. Eileen is not happy with me, because I don’t want to engage in this LVP web conversation, and I know Eileen is upset with me for not backing her up, but at this moment it doesn’t feel right. I wasn’t at Frida’s or LVP’s for dinner, and I am now here with my husband, and frankly I don’t want to go there or get into it. But, just wait, we will soon,” teasesLisa Rinna.
Yolanda‘s blog, which reads like her self-nomination for sainthood, begins, “As I watch the season unfold and observe myself going back six months in time, I feel so much gratitude for the improvement I have made and still hopeful for a full recovery.” Which she has tentatively scheduled on the day after her divorce from David “My Alimony“ Foster is settled.
