Various sources are reporting that Faye Resnick has joined the cast of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Since her debut on season 1 as a source of controversy at Camille Grammer‘s “Dinner Party From Hell,” many Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans speculated that she would return to season 2 as a regular cast member. A source told Hollywood Life that Faye had met with producers and was being “seriously considered for the show.” She recently had dinner with Taylor Armstrong and Kyle Richards Umansky. She also had dinner with Kyle and Kyle’s mother-in-law, Estelle Sneider, where they filmed a scene, leading many to speculate she was definitely joining the cast.
Faye was introduced as a good friend of Kyle’s last season. She was also a good friend of the late Nicole Brown Simpson, and testified against O. J. Simpson. She then wrote a book about her experience as Nicole’s friend, and a few years later, posed for Playboy. Camille called her “the morally corrupt Faye Resnick” and expressed her disapproval of Faye posing for Playboy after the O. J. trial. )Later, it was revealed that Camille starred in a few soft-core pornos, which weakened her argument a wee bit.) As Kyle said, “Those in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, and she threw a big boulder.”
Many rumors were swirling around about who would replace Kim Richards and Camille Grammer should they not return to the show; however, both of them are reportedly returning for season 2. As we previously reported, Denise Richards stated that she would love to join the show. Combined with the fact that she is Charlie Sheen‘s ex-wife, I thought she would be a great addition to the show. However, there has not been any news that she has signed on to the show. Actress Lisa Rinna said that she was approached by producers to join the show for season 1, but passed on it, deciding to focus on her own reality show, Harry Loves Lisa. She was also asked to join for season 2, but passed on it. Heidi Montag expressed interest in joining, but Andy Cohen told her, “That trash is delusional and I would sooner stab my knives into my eyes than see her on this network.” Subtle.
Many viewers would love to see Kim and Kyle’s sister, and mother of Paris and Nicky Hilton, Kathy Hilton, join Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but she has her own thing in the works. According to Daily Mail, Kathy Hilton will reportedly be appearing on a reality show called The World According to Paris. Of the show, Kathy said, “It’s real, it’s raw, there’s drama… it is real, I promise you. We are different… I opened up my house which I’ve never done. Paris has opened hers, Nicki has, Brooke has.. there is nothing scripted or planned, there is no hair or make-up, we do our own, our own clothing and there are no second shots. Just do it!”
I hope Faye is joining. I was curious to learn more about her about her debut last season. What do you think of Faye joining the cast? Would you rather any of the aforementioned ladies join instead?
