Just days after a source confirmed that Lisa Rinna had joined the show, a new report has revealed that her fellow soap star, Eileen Davidson, will be joining as well.

Davidson “has indeed signed on to join the cast for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," an insider revealed to Radar Online on July 24. "Eileen has a huge fan following, and will be paid for $750,000, which is a record for a new cast member. There are very interesting dynamics between Eileen and fellow cast member and soap sudser, Lisa Rinna. Everyone will be extremely surprised by their relationship.”

For months, fans have been hearing all sorts of rumors about the cast -- but this is brand new. In recent weeks, it has been reported that Camille Grammer and Adrienne Maloof would be joining the show for season five, and it was also noted that Mohamed Hadid's fiancé, Shiva Safai, could be added. However, none of those reports have yet been confirmed.

At this point in filming, Bravo has chosen to keep the cast a secret, so no one knows for sure which six ladies will be shown, but one thing is for sure: If Davidson is getting $750,000 for the season, that's bound to cause some drama between her and her co-stars. After all, even the original wives, including Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards, aren't paid nearly that much.

Yesterday, Vanderpump addressed, for the first time, Rinna's possible involvement in the series.

"I've known Lisa for 25 years," Vanderpump told E! News on Wednesday, July 23. "I love her and I have an authentic relationship with her…I do think she's very opinionated and vocal and I think that's a good thing for reality television or you fall asleep."

"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" returns to Bravo this fall.
