What will Eileen Davidson’s drama factor be like for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills when the show starts up for season 5? The newcomer, who signed on as the highest paid rookie housewife of the entire Real Housewives franchise, has experienced some family losses in the last few months.
Will this affect Eileen’s ability to deliver the goods when it comes to justifying her $750,000 salary?
According to a friend of Davidson’s who spoke with RadarOnline, she’s still recovering from the loss of her niece and sister, whom both died earlier this year.
“It was an emotional one-two punch for Eileen,” the source said.
“First, her beloved sister Connie died after a seven-year battle with Breast Cancer on March 21. Then, Brooke died unexpectedly in her sleep at home…It was a terrible spring for Eileen.”
After a brief time away from social media, Eileen Davidson came back and let her fans know via Twitter how much grief she’d been dealing with.
“I’ve been incommunicado. Dealing with family things after my sister passed in March. My sweet niece passed on Mother’s Day.”
The source even shared that it’s possible Eileen’s family drama will be added in with the RHOBH storylines. Nothing is off-limits when it comes to the drama allowed on the show. Often times the women bring up the loss of a family member when they’re experiencing a particular emotional crisis. It is part of life and even the rich and famous have a ton of life-changing events in terms of relatives with illnesses or unfortunate deaths.
Season 5 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will have its share of constant bickering, disagreements, and tense moments. That’s not including the addition of veteran RHOBH stars making cameo comebacks — Adrienne Maloof and Camille Grammer. Adrienne is looking forward to being back on the show to “resolve” some things that were never fully finished in season 3.
Lisa Rinna and Lisa Vanderpump will be close as allies this season, according to spoilers already out for the show. Vanderpump might have the upper hand this season. After the disastrous season 4 she had, it’s time she gets more control of situations once again.
Are you excited to see what the new dynamics of housewives will bring to season 5? It’ll be interesting to see how Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Brandi Glanville, Kim Richards, and Yolanda Foster blend with newcomers Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 5 airs this Fall on Bravo Monday nights.
