Kyle Richards: I SO Want Chrissy Teigen To Replace Lisa Vanderpump on RHOBH!!

by at .

With Lisa Vanderpump stepping down from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, major conversations are taking place as to who will replace the star. 

Many women have been thrown into the discussion, including Kyle Richards' sisters Kim and Kathy Hilton.

But Kyle thinks there's someone much better fitted to fill the role on Bravo's most successful franchise: 

Chrissy Teigen! 

Even though Kyle knows it's "too preliminary" to replace Lisa, who quit the show earlier this month, she's allowed to dream, right?

Yes. And we're so here for it. 100%.

"We've fantasized and talked about things," Richards told Us Weekly while celebrating Paris Hilton's partnership with The Glam app on Wednesday, June 19.

"People always ask. I would say, Chrissy Teigen."

"But I know she won't do it so I gotta think of somebody else now, because I know she's never going to do it," she said.

And even though it does seem unlikely for John Legend's wife to join the cast, nothing is impossible! 

Besides, Chrissy lives a lavish lifestyle, resides in the neighborhood of Beverly Hills, and already has some experience in the world of reality TV. 

So we will fancy the idea right along with Kyle, because yes, it is a good one.

Richards also took a moment to discuss current filming without her ex-bestie Vanderpump.

"We have 21 episodes without her so, I mean it's different," she shared.

"But you know, the show is doing well."

"So, you know it's exciting," she revealed to Us, "and there's a lot going on with all the women."

"I miss her as a cast member and a friend, but the show is doing well." 

Though Richards and Vanderpump recently had a major falling out, Kyle is hopeful for the future of their friendship.

She admits that she "would like to think" that they will reunite one day and continue their friendship. 

"I'm sure one day it will be OK," she states.

But Lisa is shaking her head no.

After Kyle accused her longtime friend of selling a story about Dorit Kemsley's dog to the press, Lisa was screaming cheerio (we imagine) to her fellow castmate. 

Following the drama, the Vanderpump Rules star confirmed to Us that she was leaving the Bravo show after nine seasons.

"I made the decision to leave. It was a very difficult year for me, personally and professionally," she said.

"The housewives, it's just, it's emotionally too difficult to deal with."

Lisa even skipped the reunion taping this month because of all the chaos with the girls this season, also meaning she missed out on a large chunk of cash.

"Lisa only gets half of her pay for the season if she doesn't go to the reunion, but she still chose not to go," one insider told Us Weekly.

"The women get half of their pay before shooting starts and the other half after the reunion."

"So Lisa lost money," shared the source.

But we don't think the British restauranteur was too terribly affected by her lack of earnings that day. 

In fact, it sounds like she is doing much better without all the negativity and drama that is the Housewives. 

And as for Chrissy, well we think she would fit right in -- offering her hilarious and mocking quips, of course.
