The season finale of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will air on Bravo TV next Monday night but we are hearing from castmember Camille Grammer that Bravo producers are already looking for a new housewife (or housewives) to join the cast for next season. Camille reveals that Bravo has NOT approached her to return to the show for the upcoming 3rd season and claims that Bravo is already casting new people for the show. Say it ain’t so!
After firing four New York housewives in one fell swoop last year, it’s entirely believable to me that Bravo’s eye is already roving for new cast members for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as it’s reaching its Season 2 finale next Monday. But, it’s especially believable when one of the housewives says it. In an interview with the Huffington Post, Camille Grammer reveals that she hasn’t been asked back for next season and that she’s been told the production is casting new housewives. “I had a good year, so I would want to go back for a third season. But they haven’t asked me yet. So, I wonder what’s going on with that,” Camille tells the site. “I guess they decided who they want and I guess they are going to start casting, looking for new housewives,” she continues. “They told me they were going to start looking, so it wasn’t behind my back. They were like, ‘Sorry we are doing a big casting call.’ I was like, ‘Thanks'” … The situation she describes sounds very close to the one that went down with the New York City cast last year. The women were told they were still on hold until further notice while casting went on for other wives. Offers went out to the women they wanted to keep and to the ones they wanted to add. And depending on whether the women accepted Bravo’s offers, Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Kelly Killoren Bensimon, and Cindy Barshop would learn their fate. We all know how that turned out. A Bravo rep tells THR that the network doesn’t comment on cast negotiations and that no official announcement of a third season has been made.
Yeah … I, too, am not surprised that Camille has been put on hold while Bravo ALLEGEDLY seeks out new castmembers for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In all honesty, Camille was pretty non-existent this season. The only time we did see her, she was fighting with Taylor Armstrong who we now know was being abused by her husband before he committed suicide … which doesn’t really paint Camille in the best light. Considering how many heads rolled when Bravo fired almost everyone from The Real Housewives of NYC, I think it’s pretty safe to assume that Camille is right about Bravo’s intentions for Beverly Hills. I don’t expect we’ll be hearing anything official regarding casting for season 3 of RHOBH anytime soon but … at least Camille has given us the early head’s up. What do y’all think? Do you want to see Camille axed from Beverly Hills? Is there anyone else (like Brandi Glanville) that YOU think should also be fired from and replaced on the show?
