Troubled Kim Richards is out, but The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has some fresh faces.
RadarOnline.com can exclusive reveal that NFL legend Marcus Allen's ex-wife, Kathryn Eickstaedt Edwards, has officially joined the cast— and the stunning beauty is already bringing the drama!
The model and actress has been "spicing things up and has been speaking her mind," a source tells Radar. "Katherine is no shrinking violet, has very strong opinions, and is never afraid to share!"
Outspoken is exactly what producers hoped for after firing Richards and controversial cast member Brandi Glanville.
One costar Edwards has already rubbed the wrong way? Kyle Richards, the source claims.
"There is drama between Kyle and Katherine because of her friendship with Faye Resnick," the insider explains. "Katherine has a lot of history with Faye."
After divorcing Allen, the spitfire married another football star, Donnie Edwards, in 2001.
Also joining the cast is aspiring singer Erika Jayne.
The songstress is close friends with current cast member Yolanda Foster and her musician husband, David.
But she's not as fiery as Edwards!
"Erika is turning out to be a bit of a dud," the source says. "She is very quiet, and just seems to agree with what anyone is saying."
"In fact, Erika seems to be going out of her way to not be controversial. Erika should realize that this is a reality show!"
