A major cast shakeup is reportedly coming to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Midway through the Bravo reality series' 12th season, a report claims the season 13 cast will look a whole lot different, with longtime cast member Kyle Richards potentially being demoted or booted from the show altogether.

Could fans have seen the last of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? According to a recent report from Life & Style magazine, via All About the Real Housewives, it's possible.

Earlier this week, an insider told the outlet that the longtime series star, who has been with the show since season one, might be on the chopping block ahead of season 13 as a “major shakeup” is reportedly looming.

“Just because Kyle is the last remaining original cast member doesn’t mean she’s safe from the chopping block,” the source shared.

As the Life & Style insider explained, Kyle has made a habit of basing her show content around her thoughts and opinions of other people's storylines, rather than her own.

“She’s always attacking the other ladies instead of coming up with her interesting storylines of her own, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed by Bravo producers or fans,” the source stated.

In addition to Kyle's potential exit, the report went on to reveal that producers are considering bringing her sister, Kim Richards, to the show -- and promoting her other sister, Kathy, who is currently starring in a guest role, to a full-time position.

"[Kim’s] a hit with the fans, and Andy Cohen loves her too,” the source noted. “[Andy’s] already offered Kim a huge paycheck to return.”

Earlier this year, Kim confirmed Andy had reached out in regard to a potential comeback.

“I did have a phone call. Andy Cohen called me last week, so maybe that could be one of our discussions,” Kim revealed on Instagram Live. “He said, you know, a lot of people have been asking for me to come back, and he said he thought, ‘I’ll go right to the source,’ so he did. And I do love Andy a lot; he’s great."
