Suzanne Somers to Join The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Cast?

Amidst all the casting rumors swirling around The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the most interesting has the show adding something entirely new to the Housewives franchise - an actual celebrity, who wouldn't be relying on the show for her fame.

Suzanne Somers has long been friends with some of the RHOBH ladies and early reports had Somers signing with Bravo for the series' fifth season.

Fans were excited, as not only would it have been the first time that the fame-obsessed cast included a legitimate star, but if rumors that Lisa Vanderpump is quitting the show had turned out to be true, then Somers would be the perfect, classy replacement.

Unfortunately, while her reps confirm that she'll likely appear in a few scenes this season, Somers denies that she will be joining as a regular cast member. 

Somers provided one simple (and very understandable) reason for declining to become a Real Housewife:

"That's not my nature. I don't fight," Somers said in a recent interview. "I don't see myself in that [situation] where I am, like, screaming for time."

As for the rest of the ladies, while all of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hilly held out on their contracts last month, five have since signed on the dotted line. 

Brandi Glanville, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards, Yolanda Foster and Vanderpump have all returned for season 5 and filming is currently underway.

Bravo effectively fired Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud after just one season, by not offering them contract renewals for season five.
