The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has already let two cast members go and is in danger of seeing a third walk, but one mainstay will be back:
While negotiations for payment are still being mulled over, she is the first member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast to agree to return.
“Brandi will absolutely be back for another season,” the source sad.
“There were rumors that she didn’t want to do it, or that certain cast members were vying to get her off the show, but she really loves the show and will return.”
Newcomers Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia were fired after just one season on the hit Bravo reality show, having failed to connect with viewers.
There are reports that fan favorite Lisa Vanderpump wants out, although executive producer Andy Cohen is going all out to get her to stay on board.
Despite the changes, drama, cat fights and other occupational hazards, there’s always the money factor, which the source admits was a huge lure for Brandi.
“She needs the money. It’s not like she has another job,” the insider said.
“Her books and stuff do well, but she’s got two boys and a certain lifestyle to support. She likes the money and notoriety that come along with being on the [show].”
Will this commitment on Brandi's part further nudge Lisa out the door?
Glanville and Vanderpump are engaged in an epic feud with each other, which could very well lead into the next season if she does decide to return.
“Brandi denies and denies her behavior, and all I can do is throw my arms up and walk away. It’s not worth the pettiness,” Vanderpump said.
“If you’d asked me weeks ago, I would have said no way in hell; but that would be quite immature of me. [Forgiveness] would take a lot,” she added.
Either way, it looks like Brandi will be beefing with someone in 2015.
