So this may or may not be news. Every single season, new housewives are tested for all of the franchises. Production likes to have options available just in case they decide to drop someone’s option the next season. When the decision was made to phire Phaedra, they had Nene returning and Kim, Eva and Shamea all on standby. For the past several week four different women have been testing with the RHOOC and it seems as though three of them are getting a lot of attention. And we did lose three housewives from last season.
Today’s news comes from Beverly Hills, who is officially casting for something. According to a Blast exclusive:
According to a new casting sheet obtained by The Blast, “RHOBH” is “Currently looking for strong, self-confident women who have children and or married and reside in Beverly Hills.”
Bravo may not be strict on the “reside in Beverly Hills” criteria anymore, because the casting producer also says potential stars can live in the “surrounding area homes” as long as they “want to share their amazing lives and business with us next season.”
I’d like to see the casting sheet. I am not sure whether or not they are assuming they are casting for RHOBH because that doesn’t always go on a casting sheet. There are other shows in the works and it could literally be for anything. That said, it does have a very RHOBH feel to the request. So, it’s possible and perhaps even likely, they are getting ready to make some changes.
So if they are, who is in danger? While we are all praying and hoping it is Dorit, I’m not sure that production hates her as much as we do. However, the rental property they have been living in is on the market. It’s also having a hard time selling. One problem is that it is on a one way street. That couldn’t have been easy for production. I have no idea where Dorit is living at the moment. What I do know is that Dorit is getting an INSANE amount of screen time with all of her ridiculous antics. That’s a sign that production likes her.
Sadly, I think Teddi is in danger. Bravo has manipulated us all over the years to believe that if there isn’t a catfight, or a drunken hissy fit, or some sort of ill-mannered public display then the show is “boring.” Poor Teddi Bear is a level-headed, soft-spoken, civilized young wife and mother who runs her own business. Let the whining about her being “boring” begin. On the last episode she outright refused to rehash a conversation she’s had with Dorit three times, one more time. GASP!
Kyle is not going anywhere unless she is just over it. LVP needs the check more than anyone and Andy adores her and her spin-off so she is safe. I am a little worried about Rinna. But she is married to Harry Hamlin! And he films with her when he can! And her smartmouthed daughter models are a pretty decent storyline. I think Erika Jayne will be fine.
If I ran the world, I’d make Camille full-time again. I am not sure that her kids are allowed to film anymore and that could be an issue. But if we made Camille full-time and Teddi part-time, I would still get the same cast. Ideally, we would replace Dorit, but I am not hopeful about that dream outcome.
What do you think is going on?
