Baroness Monica von Neumann may be joining Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Faye Resnick allegedly is not interested in becoming a full-time RHOBH cast member, or even appearing back in front of the camera next season.

Baroness Monica von Neumann has allegedly been approached by Bravo to join the RHOBH cast next season. Von Neumann is an extremely attractive and wealthy African-American social figure. The Baroness supposedly met with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills executives in February. Monica Von Neumann was allegedly interviewed on video and asked a series of questions so RHOBH producers could gauge her personality.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills meeting with Baroness Monica von Neumann is rumored to have been so top secret none of the other cast members were invited inside. Bravo is supposedly looking to “shake up” the RHOBH series after Adrienne Maloof’s abrupt exit.
While von Neumann may be a Baroness, the story of her life reads more like that of an enchanted fairytale princess. She was born to a working class Detroit family. During a Palm Springs party during the 1980s, Sonny Bono introduced then Monica Ford to a European Baron. John von Neumann of Austria fell in love and ultimately married the Detroit native. The Baron was reportedly the first to import Volkswagen to America. He is reportedly the son of the doctor that served the King of England and Spain.
Monica and her mother moved to Los Angeles when she was just five. She took a bit of Motown with her, according to her business website. While living in Detroit she “mingled” with Little Richard, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, and Barry Gordy. As a teenager she toured with Devo and Nina Simone and studied dance with Roland Dupree.
A Radar insider source had this to say about the RHOBH supposed meeting with the Baroness:
“It went really well. She had them cracking up. The producers asked her about her past and why she’s a Baroness. They appear to really love the idea of having her on the show.”
Baron von Neumann died of cancer in 2003. Baroness Monica von Neumann started the journey which led her to become a very successful businesswoman. She has been fondly referred to by some as the “Black Martha Stewart.” The goal of her business is reportedly to make luxurious products readily accessible to everyone.
