Another Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is one-and-done! Kathryn Edwards, who joined the core cast of the hit Bravo series this past season, will not return for season 7, a source confirms to Us Weekly.
The source tells Us that producers have opted not to bring back Edwards, 51, who is married to retired NFL star Donnie Edwards. Kathryn, a friend of Lisa Rinna‘s prior to joining the show, made her debut in a January episode.
The former model is not the first Housewife to get the boot from the series after only one season under her belt. She joins a group that also includes Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia, who were both let go after season 4.
A key season 6 story line for Edwards involved an early skirmish with fellow cast newbie Erika Girardi after Edwards told Lisa Vanderpump about disparaging comments that the “Painkillr” singer made about her. Edwards also sparred with Faye Resnick, who claimed in her 1994 book, Nicole Brown Simpson: The Private Diary of a Life Interrupted, that Edwards’ ex-husband, Marcus Allen, had an affair with the late Nicole Brown Simpson — and that Kathryn turned a “blind eye.”
In her final season 6 Bravo blog, posted on May 3, Edwards wrote that she enjoyed her stint on the series.
“I’ve had fun and have made some valued friendships,” she wrote. She also praised the show’s fans: “I’ve enjoyed meeting a lot of people who have approached me while I’m out and about, and I’ve taken so much from the people who have shared their stories that parallel my own.”
This past season was one of transition, with Edwards and Girardi joining the cast as former mainstays Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards were relegated to cameo status.
Along with Edwards and Girardi, season 6’s main cast included Vanderpump, Rinna, Kyle Richards, Yolanda Foster and Eileen Davidson. (Only Richards, 47, and Vanderpump, 55, have stayed with the show since its 2010 launch.)
Us reported on Tuesday, May 31, that producers are considering adding Sydney Holland — a movie producer and the ex-girlfriend of Viacom mogul Sumner Redstone — for season 7.
A Bravo rep declined to comment on Edwards’ status with the show.
