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 Glanville, Kyle 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.
Lisa Rinna is married to Harry Hamlin for 17 years. Rinna is friendly with the current cast and recently filmed her birthday party on July 11 for the upcoming season at good friend Lisa Vanderpump‘s restaurant “Pump.”
