Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills currently has exactly zero cast members under contract for Season 5. There is no cast at the moment.
The network effectively fired Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud after just one season, informing the pair that they will not be offered new contracts.
Meanwhile, Lisa Vanderpump may bail for personal reasons, a threat serious enough for Andy Cohen to woo her personally in an attempt to change her mind.
As for the rest of them? They’re less conflicted about subjecting themselves to more backstabbing, drama and cat fights. It’s all about the paychecks.
Kyle Richards, Kim Richards, Brandi Glanville, Yolanda Foster and Vanderpump have all been offered new deals for a fifth season to air in 2015.
So far, zero have agreed to return to the show.
Lisa has made it very clear she’s on the fence because of the way things played out last season with Brandi and Kyle in particular ganging up on her.
For the remaining four, it seems like the driving force is cash.
Sources say negotiations have been intense, but productive, and that Bravo is actually close to finalizing deals for everyone except for Vanderpump.
She remains a question mark, and money is NOT the issue.
As for who’ll replace Joyce and Carlton, Faye Resnick has been rumored, along with the fiancee of Yolanda’s ex-husband Mohammed Hadid.
For obvious, pot-stirring reasons on both counts.
