Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been renewed for a season 5 but there may be some cast updates.
Producers want Kyle Richards’ friend Faye Resnick to return to the show but she is holding out for a lot more money.
“Fay does not want to go back to the show,” a source close to the woman who was a central figure in the O.J. Simpson trial told Radar Online.
“She says it is so nasty and [expletive] and she just doesn’t need it.
“Faye knows the housewives make about $250,000 each. She thinks it was miserable being on the show BUT for the right price they could definitely make it worth her while.”
The producers appear to have several roles to fill after TMZ reported that Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia were deemed too boring for the show.
“We’re told it became obvious Joyce and Carlton weren’t jiving during the reunion show taping earlier this month — all the other women had great chemistry … and Joyce and Carlton were clearly outsiders,” reported TMZ.
Giraud later told the website that she’s not going to compromise her principles and the show and that she was actually thinking of leaving.
Cast members Yolanda Foster and Lisa Vanderpump are actively lobbying for Shiva Safai, the fiance of Mohammed Hadid, to come onto the show. “Both Lisa and Yolanda are telling Shiva she needs to join the cast and they want her to appear on the next season,” a source told Radar Online.
“Shiva is not only gorgeous, but she is a true class act. Everyone loves her. In fact, despite being divorced from Mohammed, Yolanda encouraged him to marry Shiva. Yolanda and Mohammed have remained very close after their divorce because they have three children together.”
The producers of the show are telling potential new cast members that they don’t need to live in the 90210 zip code or have a 310 area code–producers are willing to venture into the 818, specifically Calabasas.
There’s no word yet on specifically when filming will start or when the season will be premiere.
