LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Is Camille Grammer is looking to escape the “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”?
Producers on the reality TV hit are reportedly auditioning potential ladies to replace the 43-year-old ex-wife of Kelsey Grammer, according to RadarOnline.
“Producers are asking Lisa Vanderpump, Adrienne Maloof and Kyle Richards if any of their wealthy female friends would be interested in appearing on the show,” a Bravo network insider reportedly told the website. “It’s an open secret that Camille most likely won’t be back for a third season. She came off as such a bitch during season one, whereas this season she has been very reserved, and she isn’t exactly eager to return. Camille has some other projects in the works, but she needs to get released from her Bravo contract before she can pursue those.”
The insider also claimed that troubled “Housewife” Kim Richards, who recently did a stint in rehab, is returning for the show’s third season for purely monetary reasons.
“Kim Richards doesn’t want to [return], but she needs the money, so her role might not be as prominent,” the insider reportedly said. “Producers will focus more on Brandi [Glanville] because she is so polarizing and she loves playing the villain.”
A rep for Bravo had no comment regarding Camille’s reported exit when contacted by Access Hollywood on Friday.
“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” Season 2 finale airs on Monday at 9 PM ET/PT on Bravo.
