Andy Cohen has sworn to Kathie Lee and Hoda that there will be no recasting of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills…
… but EVERYBODY KNOWS (said like Phaedra Parks) that Miss Andy can’t say anything about anything right now.
Despite the Lord of the Housewives protests, there WILL be cast changes. According to the National Enquirer, this is what’s going on:
Lisa VanderPump will NOT be getting her spinoff series, Brandi Glanville may have to work side by side with her archenemy LeAnn Rimes, and Elvis’ former galpalLinda Thompson could be joining the cast, reveal sources.
Lisa’s relationship with“RHOBH” is up in the air after her bid for her own spinoff series reportedly fell flat and now her future with the show is in jeopardy.
Sources say producers have askedElvis Presley’ former girlfriendLinda Thompson, 61, to join the cast, as well as 29-year-old LeAnn Rimes.
NOTE: I’m givin’ the side eye to this info.
Camille Grammer will not sign on for another season. Camille’s main reason for doing season two was to rehabilitate her status as “most hated” housewife on season one of the RHOBH. Mission accomplished. Camille has no reason to put herself through another season. Camille will be gone.
It goes without saying that Shana will not be back. She is a huge liability to Bravo. Shana will be gone.
“Friend” of the RHOBH, Dana Wilkey, is also a liability. PamDana is not the “luxury” girl as her character displays on the show. Bravo now has stricter requirements for their Housewives and PamDana will not pass the new questions that are asked of anyone being considered to join any of the Housewives franchises. And, PamDana is a friend of Shana. PamDana Wilkey will be gone.
Kyle Richards will be back. Kyle was the key cast member in the original casting process.
Kim Richards will be back. Kim now has a storyline and she could use the Bravo paycheck. If there are reports now of Kim not returning… don’t worry, Kyle will talk Kim into doing one more season.
Adrienne Maloof is questionable… as is Lisa Vanderpump. IMO, neither has a strong interest in returning and why should they? Adrienne has called attention to her businesses and her husband’s practice (if people didn’t know him before RHOBH, they do now)… Adrienne has three young children that she enjoys. What would be in it for Adrienne to return?
Lisa Vanderpump’s participation in the RHOBH has made her restaurants a tourist attraction. Lisa’s “spin-off” is a no-go. However, Lisa is a very smart woman…Lisa and Ken made their millions by building sales in their London establishments and selling for huge profits. Lisa has accomplished increasing sales in both Villa Blanca and SUR… time to sell! Lisa really has no storyline for another season on the RHOBH. Lisa will not return.
The potential NEW cast members will be discussed in a future post…
