Bravo may have found some fresh meat to add to the cast of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" Season 6. The show is currently down two cast members after both Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards lost their full-time spots prior to filming.

According to E! News, Bravo may be looking to add Australian pop star Cody Simpson's mother, Angie Simpson, to fill one of the two empty slots. The site says she is currently in talks with the network and would likely spend most of her airtime opposite Yolanda Foster, as they have history. Angie's son once dated Yolanda's eldest daughter, model Gigi Hadid. No deal has been finalized just yet and, although filming for the series is underway, it does not appear that the potential "RHOBH" newcomer has made her debut.
"She is in talks," a source said. "She has not filmed yet."
Angie's storyline would most likely revolve around Gigi and Cody's relationship. The pair began dating in 2013 and were together for 2 years before breaking it off for good in May. In a statement issued to E! News after their split Gigi's rep said they each wanted to focus on their careers. The statement went on to say they hope they can be "together in the future."
While the former couple are said to still be friends, a recent run-in between the pair seemed a little uncomfortable. Cody shared a snapchat of Gigi after they were randomly seated next to one another on a flight. Over the photo he wrote, "when u get seated next to ur ex on a plane." The photo was screen grabbed by a fan and subsequently made its rounds on the Web.
Neither Bravo nor Angie have commented on the casting rumors. As we mentioned, filming is underway for "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" Season 6, though it remains unclear when the show will return.
