Courtney Hansen in Talks to Join The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

by at . Comments

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is dipping into the world of professional sports in order to fill two potential slots on season two.

First, as previously reported, producers met this month with Los Angles Lakers executive Jeanie Buss to gauge her interest in joining the cast.

Kyle and Kim Richards

Now, they are in preliminary negotiations with Courtney Hansen, the host of Spike TV's "Powerblock," a two-hour programming portion dedicated to cars.

The daughter of a former raceway owner, Hansen was named one of FHM's 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2005. She's married to pharmaceutical tycoon Ilya Sapritsky, hails from Minnesota and is the author of "The Garage Girl's Guide To Everything You Need To Know About Your Car."

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is speaking to Buss, Hansen and others in case Kim Richards and/or Camille Grammer do not return for a second season.


Hope Camille stays! She made the show fun to watch! I now realize that I didn't like Mrs. Kelsey Grammer, but I LOVE Camille Donnatacci! She was so funny with her expressions and quirky mannerisms, as Anderson Cooper pointed out. And she definitely showed class, and a good side as the season came to an end. Bet she'd show us a whole different side to her if she came back. Having to the watch the MOB - Mean Old Broads (Kyle, Taylor & Lisa) without someone who's kooky, sparkly and effervescent is going to be a chore. I hope Kim does what's best for her. We loved her, absolutely loved her. But it was very sad to watch her take her sisters abuse, make excuses for it, and not fight back. If she's up to it again, we'd love to see her back. Better that Kyle leave and Kim stays. Mean Broad phonies like Kyle are a dime a dozen, but Kim was authentic, and that's rare.
