This will stir things up in 90210. Producers of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills want Kyle Richards best friend, Faye Resnick, to join the cast, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

Resnick — best known for her involvement in the O.J. Simpson murder trial — is on a wish list of potential hires for the popular Bravo series, amid talks that series four newcomers Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia are on the chopping block.

The inclusion of Resnick on a full-time basis would certainly deliver drama, with the ex-Playboy model a noted nemesis of Brandi Glanville and Lisa Vanderpump, both of whom labelled her “disgusting” in past episodes.

A source said: “Producers are seriously considering making a formal offer to Faye to become a series regular cast member. She has been a controversial in the past when she appeared on the show and is a close friend and ally of Kyle. Plus, Faye isn’t afraid to stand up to the other ladies!”

“She is no shrinking violent and could be a great asset to the show,” said another insider.

As Radar previously reported, change is coming to the show after the current series — with none of the women having yet signed on for a fourth series.

The veterans are demanding significant pay hikes, despite production whispers mid-season that “boring” Kim Richards was on the way out, with sister Kyle said to be prepared to walk if the axe fell.

Both have begun negotiations, Radar has been told, along with feuding former pals, Vanderpump and Glanville, who are at the center of an epic breakdown of their friendship.

Said one source: “Bravo loves the nucleus of these four women, even when they’re fighting with each other! They always bring drama and glamor to the show. The network has resolved that it wants to bring them all back.”

The approach to Resnick is consistent with producers’ desire for an “authentic look” into the women’s lives.

Bravo hit shows Shahs of Sunset and Flipping Out “resonate with viewers because they were all friends before the shows started,” one production insider said.

“Look at Shah’s. Reza Farahan, “GG” (Golnesa Gharachedaghi) and Asa Rahmati have been close for over ten years.

Flipping Out’s Jenni Pulos has worked for boss Jeff Lewis for over ten years. It results in an inside look into their star’s lives.

“Producers want the new cast members of the Beverly Hills to have been friends previously.”

Though Resnick fits into that criteria, one major battle facing television brass, however, could be Resnick herself!

“Faye declined to appear on the show this past season because of all the negative feedback she got from last season,” said a source.

“It will come down to money. How much is Bravo willing to fork out to get her on the show? Then again, she does have a very successful interior design business that could benefit from being promoted on the show.”
