Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Rumor: Days Of Our Lives Actress Eileen Davidson Joining The Cast?
If Bravo producers are looking to add more drama to the prime time, quasi-reality show soap opera that is The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?
Just a week after PEOPLE learned that Days of Our Lives alum Lisa Rinna will appear in the Bravo series, a source says that Eileen Davidson is now set to join her soap opera star pal next season on the reality show.
Davidson will join a Season 5 group that also includes the recently added Lisa Rinna, who like Davidson also logged considerable time on NBC soap opera and holdovers Lisa Vanderpump, Brandi Glanville, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards and Yolanda Foster.
The new additions will take the place of former housewives Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud.
While Davidson, 55, and Rinna, 51, might be newbies when it comes to the Housewives franchise, this won't be the first time they've appeared together on television.
Davidson first got her start on the daytime soap Days of Our Lives in 1993 when she starred as the villainous Kristen DiMera alongside Lisa Rinna, who played Billie Reed from 1992 to 1995. Both actresses later returned to reprise their roles on the NBC series.
Bravo has yet to officially confirm whether Davidson is joining the cast.
It's not clear how Rinna and Davidson would mesh with the remaining cast, but something tells us they know a thing or two about scripted soaps.
The Real Housewives of Orange County taped their reunion last week and RumorFix has the inside scoop.
A source close to the show told our Real Mr. Housewife, “Tamra Judge puts Lizzie Rovsek in her place for lying and trying to turn the whole cast against her.”
Fans of RHOC may be wondering what went wrong? Well this is where the SPOILER ALERT comes in play. If you don’t want to know what happens in upcoming episodes — don’t read the rest of this article.
If you don’t mind, here we go:
In an upcoming episode, viewers will see the drama began when Tamra didn’t attend Lizzie’s birthday party. Our source says, “Lizzie got pissed at Tamra for not attending. Tamra’s daughter was sick that evening, so she missed the party. But, Lizzie spent the rest of the season trying to get Tamra back by making her look bad. She even went as far as to yell at Tamra ‘You’re just jealous because Eddie wants to fuck me’ in front of the cast. She did this off-camera, but then later denied it when Tamra brought it up on camera.”
An insider says Lizzie brought the drama because she was warned her storyline was boring and she might not be invited back next season.
Bravo doesn’t comment on spoilers. And, Tamra and Lizzie won’t comment about the show’s storyline.
Don’t be tardy for Don’t be Tardy’s new time!
The Bravo hit is switching up its timeslot, but don’t worry — it’s not going far.
The show, which usually airs on Thursday nights, is getting a new weekend timeslot, and we’re sure plenty of fans will want to show up for this party!
“Let's celebrate!!!! Don't be Tardy second episode airs THIS Thursday 9/8c and episode 3 airs Sunday after RHONJ! 9/8c,” the show’s star, Kim Zolciak, announced via Instagram.
While it’s not moving too far away from its original slot, the show, which currently airs after new hit Married to Medicine, is getting some good company, with the Real Housewives of New Jersey serving as a dramatic lead-in to Kim and Kroy’s family hijinks.
Based on what we’ve seen of the show so far, it looks as though it’s going to be one epic season, with the couple kicking things off by drinking placenta-laced smoothies
The couple, who welcomed twins Kane and Kaia at the beginning of the show’s most recent season, may have plenty of tricks up their sleeve, but adding to their family isn’t among them.
“My priority is my kids. They just consume my life. I want to focus on getting them off and into school,” Kim tells People. “It’s chaotic.”
Just call Sonja Morgan Bravo’s newest casting director! Now that the show famous for the plastic surgeries of its leading ladies is getting a major facelift of it own next season in the Big Apple, Morgan is personally on the hunt for new co-stars, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
“Sonja is a favorite of the network right now,” a source told Radar, “so executives have been talking about developing a new cast around her. And she’s actively looking and bringing friends in right now.”
As Radar previously reported, the Real Housewives of New York City will be getting a makeover in Season Seven, and it looks like the feisty blonde cougar could be the only one being spared the axe.
Even Ramona Singer’s marriage meltdown may not be able to save her, the insider said.
“Ramona is the one most likely on chopping block. There’s not much more they can do to her,” added the source. “Her storyline is creating a show that reminds the fans of what it is not.”
Two years ago, the hit franchise had the biggest cast shakeup in its TV history with four of its stars fired, including Alex McCord, Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon and Cindy Barshop. Now, next season could be the real game-changer.
“The New York Housewives franchise has lost its feel,” continued the source. “They wanted to keep some nostalgia to the show, which is why they kept Sonja and Ramona. But even with the new cast it’s not fresh and it’s a problem. It’s not working.”
Besides Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson, Kristen Taekman, and part-timer LuAnn de Lesseps possibly getting the boot for not enough drama, Radar has learned Aviva Drescher could be on her way out for being too dramatic.
“The network is not happy with Aviva. She is a super diva!” added the source, even though Drescher has vowed she’ll be back. “She makes all kinds of demands and doesn’t do all things they require her to do. She thinks she’s Jennifer Lopez.”
“They are 100 percent revamping it because it’s not performing and the new characters aren’t translating,” the source said. “So they’re looking at everyone and all options.”
