Kyle Richards Names Hilaria Baldwin as ‘Dream’ Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Castmate

Now that Annemarie Wiley’s out after just one season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, that leaves one unclaimed opening credit diamond. Kyle Richards brought Annemarie to the group.

Kyle bringing Annemarie in ultimately didn’t resonate with fans or the other ladies. But, Kyle recently shared that there is someone else she’d love to have as a hypothetical castmate: Alec Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria Baldwin.

The Baldwins live on the opposite side of the country, but read on to hear how Kyle’s been trying to get them to make a move to the West Coast and into the Bravoverse.

Kyle says “the door’s open” for Hilaria and Alec

During a recent episode of SiriusXM’s Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa, Kyle talked about who her “dream” castmate would be. The RHOBH OG shared her enthusiasm for potentially welcoming Hilaria into the fold.

“I have a new one, I think,” Kyle disclosed to Kelly and her co-host, Jan Schillay. “She lives in New York, but maybe she would move.”

Attempting to avoid any mispronunciations, Kyle cautiously expressed her admiration: “I’m scared I’m gonna mispronounce her name, but I think it’s kind of fitting for the situation. Hilaria Baldwin,” she confessed, presumably alluding to Hilaria’s questionably authentic Spanish accent. Google: “Hilaria Baldwin cucumber.”

Kelly and Jan appeared taken aback by the suggestion, noting the Baldwins have mentioned having an interest in venturing into reality television. “They’re looking for a reality show. He told us. He told us,” Jan chimed in.

Recalling a prior conversation with Alec, Kelly confirmed the couple’s openness to the idea. “Wait, that’s right. Wait a minute. Hang on. Alec Baldwin on this here podcast said they are looking for a reality show,” she recalled from her November interview with the actor.

Kyle revealed that she also had an earlier discussion with Alec. “Well, I told him. I saw him in New York. I don’t know, it was a couple years back and I said something about it then. And then I was like, he’s like, ‘Oh, we’re living in New York,’ but I don’t know.”

Kelly jokingly called for immediate action. “Jan’s calling Andy [Cohen] right now as we speak. That would be amazing television.”

In Alec’s episode of Kelly’s pod, he acknowledged his and Hilaria’s interest in reality TV. He said they’ve considered various shows and even pitched a few ideas themselves. However, he clarified that it’s because they want to work from home and stay in New York since they have a whopping seven young children to manage.

Kyle’s been in the hot seat, and Hilaria’s a bit of a polarizing figure who could give her a break from the microscope. Plus, Hilaria and Dorit Kemsley might click given their affinity for switching through several accents at any given moment.
