Lisa Vanderpump and anti-Brandi Glanville fans won’t be too happy about the fact that the outspoken mother-of-two will reportedly be returning for season 5 of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”
“Brandi will absolutely be back for another season,” a source told Radar Online, according to the publication
The insider added, “There were rumors that she didn’t want to do it anymore, or that certain cast members were vying to get her off the show, but she really loves doing it and will return.”
News that the RHOBH cast member will reportedly be returning to the show has shocked fans, especially after Brandi and Lisa’s falling out during season 4.
After her relationship with Lisa went downhill, Brandi has been getting close with former nemesis Kyle Richards. She’s been especially close to Yolanda Foster.
Glanville’s core reason for returning to the show is reportedly the financial pillow that the show provides.
“She needs the money. It’s not like she has another job. Her books and stuff do well, but she’s got two boys and a certain lifestyle to support. She likes the money and notoriety that come along with being on the Real Housewives,” states the source.
Season 5 of RHOBH has yet to begin shooting, despite the cast announcements.
TMZ has reported that the women are “refusing to sign contracts to film the next season of the show, effectively staging a holdout until they ALL get more money.”
According to the gossip website, five members of the cast of season 4, including Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards, Brandi Glanville and Yolanda Foster, have been asked back. However, negotiations are currently being made.
“Negotiations have been intense, but Bravo is close to finalizing deals for everyone except Lisa, who remains a question mark,” states a source.
