Yeah, but can she bring the drama? The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has added a new cast member, sources tell Us Weekly. The Bravo series has selected Kathryn Edwards to join the cast.
The ex-wife of NFL legend Marcus Allen will be one of the replacements for Kim Richards and Brandi Glanville, who will not be returning this season. She joins newbie Erika Jayne, a singer from Atlanta, Ga. Bravo would not comment on the casting.
Edwards is currently married to retired NFL linebacker Donnie Edwards.
Glanville announced her exit from the show after four seasons back in June, saying, “After a lot of careful thought and deliberation I have decided not to return to RHOBH as a full time cast member this season. The past four years have been amazing, a complete roller coaster of a ride.”
Richards is not returning to the show in the wake of her recent arrests and struggles with sobriety. After briefly attending rehab following her April arrest for public intoxication, Richards was sentenced to three years summary probation, 30 days of community labor, and 52 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings earlier this month. She was also hospitalized in August after being arrested for allegedly shoplifting more than 100 items from a Target store in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley.
