Last season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” ended with the future of several cast members up in the air. Recently, the “firing” of Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia is all over the news, even though Bravo hasn’t yet made an official announcement. While there’s been rumors of Kim and Kyle Richards, Yolanda Foster and Brandi Glanville coming back, only Glanville has confirmed it in public via Twitter.
Glanville was once very close to Lisa Vanderpump but that all dissolved last season with a sudden turn around by Glanville. She accused Vanderpump of using her, among other things. “Brandi denies and denies her behavior — and all I can do is throw my arms up and walk away. It’s not worth the pettiness.” Lisa told RadarOnline. When asked if she would forgive Glanville she said, “If you’d asked me weeks ago, I would have said no way in hell; but that would be quite immature of me. [Forgiveness] would take a lot.”
Vanderpump’s comment might be a sign that she’s considering a return to the hit reality show, but it’s been a tough road for RHOBH executive producer Andy Cohen to pave. There’s little reason for her to return. Her reality show “Vanderpump Rules” is a huge hit and she’s already wealthy. Cohen is depending on his close friendship with her to get her back.
According to several reports, Cohen brought along buddy and fellow Vanderpump pal Lance Bass, to a “casual dinner” at her new restaurant in West Hollywood, Pump. TMZ wrote, “Cohen is extremely nervous about losing Vanderpump — a big player on RHOBH — and spent most of their dinner trying to convince her to stay … it’s unclear if Lisa has changed her mind.”
New reports say that the five members who have been asked to return are holding out for more money. Even with all the arguing, they seem to be putting up a united front on salaries and they’re refusing to sign contracts until they get what they want. Bravo is said to be very close to finalizing the deal with all the women except Lisa Vanderpump.
Vanderpump will likely return since she’s being so quiet about it. Who will Bravo replace Giraud and Gebbia with? The one name that keeps coming up is Shiva Safai, the soon-to-be wife of Mohamed Hadid. Hadid is RHOBH Yolanda Foster’s ex-husband and father of her children. Safai and Hadid are also close friends of Lisa Vanderpump. In March, she was asked about becoming one of the Real Housewives. “It would be interesting — a fun adventure if it were to happen.” Safai said of the show. “We’ll see what happens.”
