RHOBH Casting News: Soap Opera Divas Will Bring The Drama For Season 5

Posted on Jul 28 2014 - 3:23pm by Avigail

Can these ladies handle the heat? The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” had a typical major shakeup following season 4, with cast members Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud exiting the cast.

Filling their high-heeled shoes? Soap Opera divas, Eileen Davidson, 55, and Young & the Restless star, Lisa Rinna, 51. The twosome will join returning housewives, Lisa Vanderpump, Brandi GlanvilleKyle Richards and Kim Richards.

Reportedly, Eileen will receive a record breaking pay day of $750,000 to join the cast. Not bad!

RHOBH suffered a ratings slump in season 4. The network is hoping by adding “professional” drama queens to the mix, it will shake things up for a major ratings boost.

Bravo has not commented or confirmed any casting reports.

    I have no idea who will be on next year. Lisa R supposedly filmed her birthday party at Pump but that could be for either RH or VR. It would be interesting if they were cast. I just wish that Brandi wasn’t coming back. I don’t think I will watch if she is on.

    Love Eileen…don’t like Lisa Rinna – but she and Harry know the reality show game…so it should be interesting. Both women are sure to set off Brandi’s insecurities.. LOL Wish Brandi was getting the boot…will have to FFWD through her scenes as usual.

  • Sharmagne Weston

    Great news…love both Eileen and Lisa Rinna. I might actually watch again.

  • MorningYawn

    Eileen Davidson is fab. Will be interesting to see how much drama she brings and how authentic it is (or seems)!

  • WestCoastFeed

    How good are they at improv? Well, anything should be an improvement over the absurdity of last season.

      Lisa the martyr lol

  • kirklandmomma

    I ❤❤❤ Lisa Rinna. I’ll start watching again. Finally has admitted these shows are nighttime soaps!

  • Lorn

    This is interesting. I thought they were adding an Asian woman to the cast? The Daily Mail stated it some time ago that they were and she was caught filming scenes in BH. It will be interesting to see what Lisa brings to the table.

    I don’t believe that Eileen will be earning $750,000, more than the break-out star, Lisa, in her first season. No way. We all know Bravo is too cheap for that. If Lisa and the other originals aren’t making that much, there’s no way they will pay a newbie that much. If that was the case, Blandi would have been making far more money than she is now.

    It’s about time they brought some real celebrities into the mix. Looking forward to the next season!
