The cast of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” appears to be shrinking fast. Bravo has decided to move forward without Kim Richards and Brandi Glanville, but could another member of the cast be on her way out?
Fans of the popular “Real Housewives” franchise were up in arms after Lisa sent a cryptic tweet June 25. The 51-year-old’s post mentioned her many jobs and seeking out other opportunities. Fortunately Yahoo! Celebrity was able to catch up with the “RHOBH” star to get the scoop. Lisa assured the site she was simply sending one of her famous tidbits of advice and positivity saying, “It had nothing to do with anything other than that’s how my mind works.”
“That freakin’ tweet!” she said. “I always put out tweets like that, just positive things and quotes, but today, it hit a chord with everybody because, I guess, they think I’m fired and I’m not coming back or whatever it is.”
Kim was the first “RHOBH” star to lose her spot on the show. The announcement came on June 9 after Bravo and their parent company, NBC Universal, came to the decision that she was too much of a liability to continue as a full-time cast member. The decision stems from reports that the network was demanding she seek treatment for her alcoholism or face the posibility of demotion or being fired.
Not long after, on June 18, it was reported that Brandi had also been let go. She confirmed the rumors during an episode of her podcast, “Brandi Glanville: Unfiltered,” saying she had decided to shift her focus to her many other business ventures. Former co-stars Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards claim that is not the case at all. Lisa V. recently told TMZ Brandi's claims she decided to leave the show on her own volition were "a crock of poo."
Filming for Season 6 is currently underway. It has not been announced who will be filling the two vacancies on the “Real Housewives” cast. Bravo has yet to reveal when “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” will return to the air.
