The RHOBH Season 6 cast may be without Kim Richards. Following the troubled star’s arrest on Thursday, producers have reportedly urged her to get help, and if she doesn’t, she could be booted from the show.
“Producers are going to give Kim an ultimatum – go to rehab, or else!” a source told Radar Online on April 17.
According to the source, executives at NBC Universal “held an emergency meeting” hours after Richards’ arrest in regard to her part in the RHOBH Season 6 cast.
“They called together all of the higher-ups because they needed to discuss Kim’s future involvement with the show. She has now become a liability and she needs to get help.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Richards was said to be on the verge of being fired from the RHOBH Season 6 cast prior to her arrest. According to a Life & Style report earlier this year, producers were considering eliminating three housewives from the RHOBH Season 6 cast, including Richards, her sister, Kyle, and Lisa Rinna.
“Producers are looking to get rid of Lisa Rinna and siblings Kim and Kyle Richards. They thought Lisa would be the easygoing, level-headed one, but she’s been a lot of trouble.”
As for who would replace the three axed housewives in the RHOBH Season 6 cast, Life & Style’s source claimed producers were considering bringing back two former housewives.
“They have plans to bring Camille Grammer back, and are considering having Adrienne Maloof return, too.”
The RHOBH Season 6 cast would likely begin filming the show’s upcoming installment in late summer, although nothing has yet been confirmed. As for the possible returning wives, fans can expect to see Lisa Vanderpump and Eileen Davidson, at least. While Brandi Glanville has been a part of the show for years now, her role in the RHOBH Season 6 cast is currently up in the air.
For the last several months, Glanville has made statements regarding the RHOBH Season 6 cast, which seem to hint that she may not be on board. On Twitter last month, Glanville told fans she hadn’t yet been fired or decided to stay with the show, so her role on the show may come to an end.
In addition to her Twitter statement, Glanville recently told In Touch Weekly, via Real Mr. Housewife, that she wasn’t sure a reality return was the right thing for her because of how she’s been portrayed on the show.
“It’s really difficult and that’s why I’m trying to figure out if this is the right thing for me to continue doing. It’s a little unfair. It hurts sometimes.”
Bravo has yet to release an official statement regarding the RHOBH Season 6 cast.
