'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' news: Cast changes and issues arise as season 6 premiere nears


The sixth season of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” will be premiering on Dec. 1, with some changes in casting revealed. With this event coming up very soon, talk has surfaced regarding cast members being uncertain of Yolanda Foster’s condition.

In an exclusive interview with People, Real Housewife Kyle Richards talked about how ‘some’ housewives are skeptical about the real score on cast-mate Foster’s Lyme disease. Foster was diagnosed in 2012 with the disease.

Richards also revealed on ET last week saying, “I think for a lot of people it’s very confusing.” She continued, “A lot of the things she’s gone through and the treatments she’s done, for some of the cast members they were questioning exactly what she was doing and exactly how sick she was. It was not a good situation.”

She said that her cast mates are doubting the claim for reasons which will come out in the next season.

“Some things came up that made some of the Housewives question exactly what was really going on,” Richards concluded.

On other cast news, the Real-Housewife-that-was-not-to-be Angie Simpson, mother to Cody and Alli Simpson, talked of why she won’t be appearing after all on the show. She had confirmed her involvement with the series earlier in summer and was in fact seen filming with the cast. Then suddenly she was no longer part of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” events.

Apparently, according to Simpson on Reality Tea, the Federal Government denied her Work Visa, and so she could no longer pursue her involvement in the TV show.

She expressed her disappointment at this incident, posting on her Instagram account, “Yes I started filming on the ‘Real Housewife of Beverly Hills’ this season.”

She told of how she “was excited to bring a cool aspect to the show of a chill Aussie Mum!”

And she shared, “But due to my USA working visa being declined by immigration I had to pull out of the show and the rest of the season. This was quite a blow to me after working so hard to get the job.”

Not giving up, the actress is still pursuing her dream to be part of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” She said she continues to work on her immigration process so she could eventually work and stay with her children in the United States.

On another note, new cast members will be joining the next season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Kathryn Edwards, who is wife to Donnie Edwards, the NFL player, and Erika Jayne, from the music industry, married to Thomas V. Girardi. Jayne has some popular hits to her name, “Party People (Ignite the World),” Stars,” and “Rollercoaster.”

Returning as full cast members for the upcoming season are Yolanda Foster, Richards, Eileen Davidson, Lisa Rinna, and Lisa Vanderpump. However, Kim Richards and Brandi Glanville will no longer be appearing on a regular basis, with Kim having to face some rehab time and legal challenges.
