New 'Real Housewife of Beverly Hills' Yolanda Hadid Can't Replace Camille Grammer

Yolanda Hadid and David FosterFilming is underway for the next season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and juicy details continue to leak, including word on the newest lady insane enough to willingly join this dysfunctional family. According to Radar Online, it's Yolanda Hadid, who will fill the stilettos vacated by Camille Grammer.

She's not an unexpected choice, as rumors have been floating around for a while that she was a contender. And based on what we know, she seems like a fitting choice.


Currently she's married to world-famous music producer David Foster (he's her FOURTH husband), which is rife with opportunity in itself as they hobnob with some of the world's elite (Barbra Streisand, Oprah Winfrey, Kate Hudson, Michael Buble, Heidi Klum, and Muhammad Ali were present at their wedding in 2011). But perhaps even more fascinating is the fact that one of her ex-husbands is none other than Mohamed Hadid -- that exotic, ridiculously wealthy friend of Adrienne Maloof's that we've seen cavorting about on the show. Remember Pandora's engagement party that he threw?

So with Adrienne and her ex tight, it will be interesting to see the dynamic there. Plus, she's a Dutch model and stunning, so it will be fun to see Kyle Richards turn green. She seems down for drama all around. A source told Radar Online, "Yolanda is going to make an excellent addition to the cast and she can definitely hold her ground if the claws come out; she is no shrinking violet." Bring it.

So yes, I think Hadid will fit in nicely (or better yet, not so nicely, which is perfect), but I'd still rather just have Camille come back. Yesterday Kyle Richards told Us magazine it was "weird" filming without Grammer.

We all started out together. We've been through so much together and we're all very bonded. Even if we have our moments and we want to strangle each other at times, it feels weird. I'm not a good person with change -- I don't like change.

I don't like it in this instance either, but Bravo has spoken. And knowing these ladies, it's going to be interesting no matter what.

What do you think of Yolanda Hadid as the newest cast member of RHWOBH? Do you think it will be weird without Camille Grammer?
