Kris Jenner’s name may be being thrown around as a potential replacement for Denise Richards on the upcoming season of RHOBH but that doesn’t mean the longtime reality star actually wants the gig.
According to show insiders, Kris has no intention of joining the Bravo hit as a full-time Housewife, despite fans constantly bringing up her name. “She’s open to appearing here and there like she did this season when it’s natural as she is friends with a lot of the ladies, but she won’t be joining as a friend or full-time cast member next season,” a production source told Hollywood Life exclusively.
Continued the source, “Kris is not joining the cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills [full-time]. There was never even any talk of it. Kris has no idea where that rumor even came from or how it got started.”
Garcelle Beauvais is Team Kris
Recently, RHOBH newbie Garcelle Beauvais responded to the rumours, telling Extra that she wouldn’t be opposed to Kris joining the show, adding fuel to the fire.
“I think she fits the bill… Anything is possible… I never thought I’d do reality, so anything is possible,” she told the entertainment show and as Hollywood Life also pointed out, Andy Cohen also recently talked about the possibility of Kris joining the show, too.
Garcelle Beauvais and Andy Cohen have both openly discussed the possibility of Kris Jenner joining RHOBH.
“I got so many DMs and tweets saying Kris should join The Housewives,” he said on his SiriusXM radio show, according to the outlet. “She is already connected with the cast, she’s good buddies with Kyle, no joke. She knows everyone on the show. She’s buddies with Rinna I think…[but] I don’t think she would do it: she’s leaving a show for which she has total control over.”
He continued, “Why would she leave and join a show that she has no control over? She wouldn’t be an executive producer of the show, she wouldn’t have control over the edits.”
End of the Kardashians
Just this month, E! Entertainment announced that Keeping Up With The Kardashians was ending, freeing up Kris Jenner to join another reality show and seeing as E! and Bravo are both owned by NBCUniversal, the switch would have made sense.
However, we always doubted the rumours because Bravo has a tendency to want to feature unknown reality stars as opposed to those who are well aware of the game. While the RHOBH cast is in fact full of Hollywood actresses, it would be new for the network to bring on an experience reality star.
While Kris may not be joining the show for next season, the network surely has other names lined up as filming is reportedly set to begin next month.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will return to Bravo in 2021.
