carlton gebbiaMove over Lisa Rinna. Pack your bags Baroness Monica Von Neumann. Take a hike Jean Kasem -- rumor has it that the newest cast member on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is Carlton Gebbia. Despite previous gossip, it sounds like Ms. Gebbia might finally be the real deal. The TMZ guys almost got her to admit to replacing Adrienne Maloof, but the British beauty living in Beverly Hills couldn't be fooled.

So. Just who is this woman who dares to entertain us on reality TV with her wealth, attitude, and penchant for "telling it like it is"? Here's everything we know about her.

  • She's an actress. According to IMDb, Carlton had roles in the 1994 movie Eyes of the Serpent; in The Sexperiment in 1998; on the Young and the Restless in 1999; and on Suddenly Susan. It's not that big of a resume, but hey, at least she has some familiarity in front of the camera.
  • She's super rich. Carlton's husband is David Gebbia, owner of StockCross Financial Services and a California construction company. His net worth is over $50 million.
  • She's got a house to rival Villa Rosa. Carlton and David built their custom mansion in the exclusive Beverly Ridge Estates gated community. Their 12,800-square-foot home has two swimming pools and two driveways and looks a lot like Adrienne Maloof's old place.
  • She keeps it real. When asked what she'd bring to the show, Carlton said "honesty" and "loyalty." She also mentioned she's a "bit of a fighter." Can we assume from her accent she'd be on team Lisa? Brits gotta stick together, right?
  • She's a feminist. Ish. Sources say that Carlton's sick of all the "silly shit" women do on TV and wants to portray her gender as strong, beautiful, and powerful. What, Carlton -- you don't think wig-pulling, name-calling, back-stabbing, and total self-absorption is ladylike?

Bravo has yet to confirm that Carlton's the new girl, but it won't be long now until they announce who's filling the open spots. And with Adrienne, Camille, Marisa, and possibly Kim Richards' and Taylor Armstrong's spots up for grabs, Carlton might not be the only one getting a part on the show.

On second thought, don't leave just yet Lisa, Monica, and Jean ...

Watch Carlton confront the rumor:
