"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" producers are currently searching for stars to join the show for the upcoming fifth season.

Since season four came to a close earlier this month, rumors have been circulating about who will come and who will go, and today, a new possible housewife was named.

According to a March 19 report by TMZ, the wife of John Schneider (who played Bo Duke in "Dukes of Hazzard"), Elly Schneider, is reportedly in talks to become part of the hit Bravo series.

Elly told TMZ that her husband John's agent was contacted by producers to see if she was interested in submitting an audition tape -- which she was.

In her audition tape, Elly takes fans inside her Santa Monica condo, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean. John, who recorded the tape, makes an appearance, but apparently, they aren't actually together at this time. As Elly notes in the video, she lives alone, but she and John appear to be on good terms.

Although Santa Monica is much different than Beverly Hills, it is close by, and for years, it hasn't actually been a requirement to live in Beverly Hills to be on the show. In fact, the only housewives that appears to live in Beverly Hills are Lisa Vanderpump and Carlton Gebbia.
