With Yolanda Foster, Kathryn Edwards, and probably Eileen Davidson done, there are a few spots up for grabs, and Bravo is said to be looking for 2 – 3 women that already have natural relationships to the existing cast, but also have organic drama and fun storylines. I had predicted that one condition LVP had for re-signing her contract was an ally.
After much speculation that Bravo was desperate to repair Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills after last seasons’ toxicity and Yolanda was fired, today she confirmed her departure. Yolanda implied she made the decision not to return, however a production source claims Yolanda actually quit because Bravo only offered her a ‘Friend’ contract instead of being a full-time cast member.
With Season 7 contracts being signed, rumors are already swirling about next season’s cast. One thing is unquestionably certain – Bravo wants changes! It seems they might want more true friendship and fun, rather than the divisive “Munchausen show” and ManipulationGate, RHOBH became last season.
Sydney Holland, the very recent ex of Viacom and CBS mogul Sumner Redstone, apparently wants to reinvent herself by becoming a cast member on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. Well – that’s one way to get out of your mega famous’ billionaire ex’s shadow! Move over Yolanda Foster there’s a new mega-accomplished gold digger in the 90210!
Sources say that Sydney officially pitched herself to Bravo producers by creating a “sizzle reel.” Oh dear… do we think Sydney’s reel featured her dining with Giggy at PUMP? Or possibly attended a Lyme IV drip with Yolanda? Or shopped Kaftans at Mumus By MeanieMcMessiniessToo? Or perhaps – oh, perhaps! – patting a puss in Erika Jayne‘s empowered panty chapel?!
(If any of this happened, I need to see all of it in the Secrets Revealed episode.)
“Erika‘s coming into the show as a friend to Yolanda and David and she has already filmed her segment for the start of the show,” an insider shared with In Touch. “She has definitely signed on to the season as a full housewife.”
And the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills casting rumors keep on coming! This morning it was splashed about on Page Six that Kyle Richards was out and her sister Kathy Hilton was in. This is after the rumors of a few weeks ago that said once Kim Richards was out, Kathy was in. Oh that Kathy! Ready to take either sister’s place. Not so fast, says Kyle!
We were trying to wrap our heads around a RHOBH without Kyle and Mauricio and just couldn’t imagine what kind of vibe it would have. But it turns out we don’t have to worry about that..probably. Access Hollywood caught up with Kyle at an event last night and she dished what she could on the casting for the upcoming season.
That’s 7 1/2 already – I mean, Kim? Seriously? Let’s just give her a half.
Now rumor has it that Lisa Rinna has joined the cast as well. Reportedly, ABC has approached Lisa about The View, but she couldn’t resist Bravo‘s charm. Or something. Around this time last year Lisa stated that she wouldn’t ever join Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
