I don't want to project on you here, but I really don't think you'll be happy with this latest Real Housewives of Beverly Hills casting rumor. Word on the old Internet is that soap star Lisa Rinna is in talks to take the open spot left by Adrienne Maloof. Apparently, she was close to being a part of the original cast for season 1, but instead chose to do her own reality show, Harry Loves Lisa, on TV Land, and now, it's possible she'll be a part of season 4.
Two words, two syllables: No thanks.
It's not that I have anything against Lisa -- in fact, I've always enjoyed her appearances on Andy Cohen's show Watch What Happens Live -- it's just that I don't think she'd be able to let her guard down. I can't really see her saying anything controversial, let alone getting in a disagreement with Brandi Glanville or Lisa Vanderpump. I would just assume, incorrectly or not, that whatever Miss Rinna did would be because of the cameras, not in spite of them.
I'm sure it's hard to find someone who'd act otherwise, though, seeing as the show's a runaway hit and everyone watches it, but hey, they were able to get Yolanda Foster to sign on, and she'd never seen an episode before, so perhaps there's hope that whatever fresh meat they cast might actually be, you know, fresh. Or at least fresher than Lisa Rinna, who's already visited the Bravo clubhouse.
We've heard that Baroness Monica Von Neumann is also in the running to join season 4 -- I'd take this relative nobody over Lisa Rinna any day.
Plus, is there really any more room on the show for another woman with enormous lips? I kinda feel like Taylor Armstrong has that on lockdown. Two ducks on the block is one duck too many.
Would you be happy if Lisa Rinna joined RHOBH?
