Bravo is getting ready for some major changes in Season 7 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and they might include getting rid of fan-favorite Yolanda Hadid.
While talks of Munchausen dominated last season, producers want to lighten the mood and focus on fun times and friendships.
For the most part, producers plan to accomplish this with significant casting changes. Which ladies are not going to be included the new season?
According to Reality Tea, there is a strong chance that Hadid has already been fired from the show. Although her exit has not been confirmed, the focus on friendships makes it likely that Hadid will no longer be a part of the show.
Not only did fans watch Hadid battle a terrible disease, but her marriage fell apart at the start of the season. If the show wants a lighter mood, then Hadid is definitely on her way out.
To make matters worse, Hadid has not been able to get any support from her fellow cast mates. Coupled with the negative storylines, it appears as though Hadid’s future on the show is over.
Unfortunately, this means that one other cast member will not return to the show while another might get demoted. Who’s next on the chopping block?
While Girardi certainly made a good impression on fans, newcomer Kathryn Edwards did not make a big splash last season. Apart from a few drama-filled moments, Edwards’ time on the show was largely uneventful.
Considering her lackluster performance, producers have not asked Edwards to return for another year.
With Yolanda Hadid and Kathryn Edwards reportedly getting the boot, reports indicate that Eileen Davidson will see her role on the hit reality show diminished next season.
Although Davidson has been offered a contract extension, producers want to demote her to friend status. Not only does this mean that Davidson will see less air time, but she’ll also get a significantly smaller paycheck.
According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, Davidson is just too expensive to keep on board. Apparently, Davidson was paid around $250,000 for her debut season, which is the highest any cast member has earned when they first join the show. If Davidson’s paycheck started out that large, it surely only got larger in following seasons.
If Davidson returns to the show as a friend, then she will join Kim Richards, who also shares a similar status on the series.
Speaking of Richards, the reality star reportedly relapsed during the production of The Mother/Daughter Experiment. If these reports are true, then there is little chance that Richards will make an appearance on RHOBH next season.
Of course, none of these casting moves have been confirmed. Considering everything that went down last season, however, there is a good chance that producers will switch things up in the new year.
Although many things are still up in the air, News Everyday is reporting that production for the new season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will commence after casting is sorted out.
With so many casting changes ahead, fans could be introduced to a number of new faces next season.
In one of the more surprising possibilities, rumors indicate that Sydney Holland might join the show.
Holland formerly dated billionaire Sumner Redstone, who also happens to own Viacom. If Holland is included on the show, her wealthy connections would certainly add another layer of drama.
Holland and Redstone parted ways after she was caught cheating on the 93-year-old media tycoon.
The new season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is set to premiere at some point later this year.
