From Rock Spouse To Real Housewife? Bravo Pursuing Rod Stewart's Wife Penny Lancaster To Join RHOBH!
Bravo executives are pursuing Brit rocker Rod Stewart's model wife, Penny Lancaster, to join The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but she is having major reservations about signing on to the hit reality show franchise, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
"Now that Adrienne Maloof and Camille Grammer have quit the pressure is on to get them replaced quickly -- and that is why they are going after Penny -- in full force," a source tells Radar.
"She would make a great addition to the cast because she's gorgeous, glamorous and has this amazing over-the-top lifestyle. Penny is flattered to be asked, but she sees what the show has done to past Housewives' marriages, friendships and family ties — so, even though Rod would be fully supportive of her if she did join, she has no intention of heading down that same route.
"Penny really has no good reason to join the show — she's happily married and has a very loving family life," the source continues. "She's a successful photographer and has a great career in her own right, so she really wouldn't really have anything to gain by signing up."
It's been widely reported that producers are looking to make some big changes and will likely ax the majority of the existing cast in their bid to shake things up in the 90210.
“The only cast members guaranteed to come back for the fourth season right now are Brandi Glanville and Lisa Vanderpump," the source says.
As RadarOnline.com was first to reveal, Maloof's decision to give an interview to a magazine about why she and Glanville were embroiled in a bitter feud, after her lawyers forced Bravo to edit out all mentions of the subject on the show, is the reason she was ultimately fired from Housewives.
Maloof’s attorneys went postal on Glanville and Housewives producers after Brandi taunted Adrienne about her twin sons being born to a surrogate – threatening to sue if any mention of the subject appeared on the show, or in the media – however, just weeks later the 51-year-old opened up about the subject herself during an interview with Life & Style.
Penny, 41, has been married to Rod since 2007, and the two have two young sons together.
