With Denise Richards out of the picture after only two seasons, everyone is wondering who will be the next star to join Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Caitlyn Jenner is campaigning for her longtime pal Sophia Hutchins to top the list for Denise’s replacement, an insider exclusively tells Life & Style.
“Andy Cohen and Bravo may want Kris Jenner to join the cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but Caitlyn has a candidate, too — her companion and BFF Sophia,” the source raved, noting “Sophia has already said that she would do it in a heartbeat.”
Just six months ago, the 23-year-old revealed she would love to appear on the beloved reality series. “I would be on [RHOBH] in two seconds,” Sophia told Lauren Zima during an interview with Entertainment Tonight on March 24.
During the chat, Caitlyn, 70, asserted she too would be a good choice for a new cast member. “I did watch an episode with you two nights ago, and I honestly kind of got into it. You know, I’ve done reality television pretty much all my life — sports is reality television — and I was watching that and saying, ‘I could see myself getting in there with some of the drama,’” the former Olympian noted before Sophia added, “Andy [Cohen], call us!”
The same day Denise, 49, announced she was leaving the series, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians regular sung her ex-wife Kris’ praises, gushing she would be “phenomenal” on the Beverly Hills franchise. “Let’s put it this way, Kris could handle all of those women and some others,” Caitlyn told Access on September 9. “That’s kind of in her element. I think she would do very well. She would have a lot to say with all these girls.”
“It certainly would be interesting if Kris were to join the cast and she had to interact with Sophia and possibly Caitlyn,” the insider exclusively tells Life & Style. “That would be TV gold.”
It seems that hinges on whether or not the momager, 64, joins the reality series in the first place. “They’ve been talking about it and she’s tempted, but she’d want to play a bigger part on the production side of things, too,” a separate insider told Life & Style about the prospect of Kris becoming a Bravolebrity. “They’d have to reach some form of agreement for her sign up as an official housewife but there have been discussions.”
Sophia, Caitlyn or Kris — we just want a Kar-Jenner in the franchise!
