Is Caitlyn Jenner joining Housewives of Beverly Hills?


Over the weekend the gossip mill was alive with talk of a new cast member on Housewives of Beverly Hills.  Last week people kept throwing out Kris Jenners name, but we all know she would never give up creative control, so that was dismissed quickly.

Now TMZ is reporting that Caitlyn, 70, and her “roommate” Sophia Hutchens, 23, are in talks.  TALKS. That’s practically a contract in LA speak.

Hutchins recently sat down for dinner with Eileen Davidson, who previously starred on RHOBH. During their get-together, they reportedly talked about the show and the possibility of Hutchins becoming a part of the cast. They also discussed Davidson’s time on the show (she was a full-time member of the cast from Seasons 5 to 7 and has made guest appearances in recent seasons). Hutchins reportedly received enough excellent feedback from the soap star that she decided that she is interested in being on the Bravo show.

As TMZ noted, both Hutchins and Jenner have connections with the RHOBH cast, which would make them perfect additions to the crew. The 23-year-old knows Lisa Rinna, who currently stars on the show, socially and Jenner knows Rinna’s husband, Harry Hamlin. TMZ spoke with Hutchins outside of Craig’s in West Hollywood and asked her about this report. She said that she’s “ready” to make it happen. She added, “I think I could definitely handle them. And Rinna and I are tight. So, I think I could do it… I think this would be the best thing to happen to Real Housewives, ever.”
