Bravo has yet to officially confirm all the rumors that Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson are joining the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” cast, but many are saying it is true! Wet Paint reported Wednesday that Rinna was spotted in Hollywood filming for the show. She was wearing a black shirt dress and carrying a Chanel bag in the posted photos.
No official word has been given and she hasn’t been caught filming yet, but Eileen Davidson is said to be joining her friend Lisa on the series for season 5. People reported the casting news on Wednesday. Davidson has been a soap opera favorite for many years. She has been on both the “Young and the Restless” and most recently “Days of Our Lives.” In her role as Kristen DiMera on “Days of Our Lives” she just picked up the coveted Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress.
Rinna is also a former star of “Days of Our Lives.” She played Billie Reed on the show in the 1990’s. Soap Operas are not all Rinna is known for. Her career includes being a published author and she has also released some fitness DVDs. In the past she was also nominated for daytime Emmy’s for her time on “Soap Talk.”
How does Lisa Vanderpump feel about Rinna joining the “RHOBH” cast? Vanderpump told E!News that she has known Rinna for 25 years and loves her. She went on to say she’s a very opinionated woman and that would be a good thing for a reality TV show. She declined to confirm if all the rumors are true but did say she was excited at the thought of it happening!
Time will tell if the two soap opera pals are joining the cast. The two will be replacing Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia, who left after season 4. Lisa Vanderpump, Brandi Glanville, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards and Yolanda Foster are all said to be returning cast members for season 5. “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” airs on Bravo.
