Andy Cohen is shutting down rumours that Caitlyn Jenner and her rumoured girlfriend Sophie Hutchins are set to join The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 11.
Andy took to his radio show on SiriusXM to dispel the rumours, telling his co-host that he believes Caitlyn and Sophia are leaking the rumours themselves. “This is one of those where, the call is coming from ‘inside those people’, as they say,” he said, referencing the many PR companies commonly used in Hollywood.
“I know that they have expressed their interest publicly, on social media they’v tagged me in posts saying ‘we think this is a great idea’ but we have never talked to them formally,” he continued. “That rumour is not true.”

In recent weeks, rumours have surfaced that both Kris Jenner and Kathy Hilton were also joining RHOBH, and Andy took a few moments to point out why their casting might make more sense, despite Kris recently denying she was even interested.
“Kris is good friends with Kyle [Richards], they are legitimately good friends,” he said. “I just don’t see [Caitlyn joining].”
As previously reported, RHOBH will look quite a bit different when it returns for Season 11. In addition to Denise Richards’ exit, Teddi Mellencamp has been fired and there are even rumours on social media that Erika Girardi has been demoted, so there are a few diamonds up for grabs.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will return to Bravo in 2021.
