First Lisa Rinna signed on, and now, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast scores actress Eileen Davidson for season 5. The soap opera star from The Young and the Restless and Days of Our Lives will be making the highest salary of all the cast members on RHOBH.
According to an exclusive out by RadarOnline, Davidson will command the highest salary of any of the housewives — and it’s a record amount for a new cast member. The RHOBH cast just had their salaries increased, with the highest amounts being $500,00 for Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Brandi Glanville, and Yolanda Foster. Davidson will be making an astounding $750,000. Talk about a welcome aboard greeting!
A show insider speaking with Radar tells them:
“[Eileen] has indeed signed on to join the cast for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She was only working on a limited basis for DOOL and Y&R. Eileen has a huge fan following, and will be paid for $750,000, which is a record for a new cast member. There are very interesting dynamics between Eileen and fellow cast member and soap sudser, Lisa Rinna. Everyone will be extremely surprised by their relationship.”
Other sources, such as Us Weekly, confirm Eileen Davidson will appear in season 5 of RHOBH. People also confirms that the soap opera star will join fellow cast members Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards, Brandi Glanville, Yolanda Foster, and Lisa Rinna.
Eileen and Lisa Rinna shared one year together on Days of Our Lives in 1993. Eileen’s character was Kristen DiMera and Lisa’s was Billie Reed. Lisa was on the show from 1992 to 1995.
Lisa Rinna and Kim Richards will be making the same salary at $450,000 each.
The dynamics will be completely reset in season 5 with the addition of two soap opera stars who know each other from the early days — navigating their way through this group of women. No one is cut much slack, and if anyone harbors resentment, bitterness, or jealousy, it doesn’t remain quiet long.
It’s likely fans will see some tense moments between Rinna and Glanville. Rinna says of all the housewives that made her crazy while watching RHOBH, it was Brandi. Expect some turbulent exchanges between these two ladies. Neither of them is a shrinking violet, so don’t be too surprised if this pair go at each others throats.
Fans of Eileen Davidson will have a chance to learn more about the actress out of character from Jill Abbot and Kristen DiMera. Who will she bond with in the beginning and form true friendships with later on in the game?
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 5 airs this Fall on Bravo Monday nights.
