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.
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.
“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."
Should Faye Resnick join the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?
