There’s not enough reality in the 90210 apparently. Producers of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills want new cast members to be friends with theladies on the show because viewers want an authentic look into their lives, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
Bravo hit shows Shahs of Sunset and Flipping Out“resonate with viewers because they were all friends before the shows. Look at Shah’s, Reza Farahan, Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi and Asa Rahmati have been close for over ten years,” a show insider told Radar.
“Producers want the new cast members of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to be friends with the ladies. Yes, Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump had been acquaintances for several years before appearing on the show, but it wasn’t a friendship.”
Although the ratings have been higher this season, with the Brandi Glanville racist comments and massive breakdown in the friendships, having all random women on the show is what the Bravo execs want to change.
“The only time the RHOBH ladies get together is when they are filming,” the source told Radar.
“These aren’t true friendships and it’s all for the show. It’s time that changed. With Carlton Gebbi and Kim Richards on their way out, producers have asked the current cast for a list of names of their close friends that would be interested on joining the show,” an insider told RadarOnline.com.
“Both Lisa and Yolanda are telling Shiva she needs to join the cast and they want her to appear on the next season,” a source told Radar.
“Shiva is not only gorgeous, but she is a true class act. Everyone loves her. In fact, despite being divorced from Mohammed, Yolanda encouraged him to marry Shiva. Yolanda and Mohammed have remained very close after their divorce because they have three children together.
“Lisa would love to have Shiva on the show because they are friends, and as viewers know, she isn’t popular with other ladies and could use another ally!”
