'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' May Cut Even More Cast Members
Yesterday, we reported that Adrienne Maloof and Taylor Armstrong might be getting kicked off "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." But now, Radar Online reports that there may be other ladies on the cutting room floor as well -- in fact, according to the entertainment site, only Brandi Glanville (team Brandi!) and Lisa Vanderpump are safe:
Kim’s addiction storyline has been exhausted and she doesn’t bring anything to the show anymore. Yolanda was brought in as a super-rich trophy wife, but she’s just been so boring to watch and doesn’t add anything to the dynamic of the group. As for Kyle, she is easily replaceable. Producers are looking for over-the-top cast members and would love to have Lionel Richie‘s wife, Brenda and Sylvester Stallone‘s wife, Jennifer on the show.
That means that there would be an almost all-new cast. The "show insider" who gave Radar the scoop allegedly also said that the reason for the mass cuts is that the show has become too litigious -- rather than fighting over party invitations (or lack thereof) and ballgowns, the women of Beverly Hills are just constantly threatening to sue each other.
I mean, if what you're after is accuracy...
Anyway, the good news is that Brandi's safe, which is all anybody really cares about.
