Even though Lisa Rinna has denied this exact rumor in the past, multiple sources are now reporting that the daytime soap star (and more importantly, Mrs. Aaron Echolls, obviously the most significant milestone in her career) will be the newest cast member of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. If this is true, she will be joining veteran housewives Kim and Kyle Richards, Brandi Glanville and Lisa Vanderpump for the fifth season of the series.
It’s already been confirmed that Carlton Gebbia (snore) and Joyce Giraud (double snore) will not be returning for season five. Former housewives Camille Grammer and Adrienne Maloof have already been spotted filming scenes – namely Kyle Richards’ (in)famous White Party. Is Lisa Rinna the final piece in the RHOBH puzzle? And does that mean hubby Harry Hamlin – Mad Men star and, more importantly, Aaron Echolls himself – will be appearing on the show?
Both Rinna and Bravo have yet to confirm this news, but I really hope it’s true. We need some true glamour on this show. Brandi doesn’t count.
