Last week, Camille Grammer announced
that she would not be returning for the third season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
. Now a source at RadarOnline
is confirming which of the ladies will be back for another season.
According to the show insider, both Kim and Kyle Richards will be returning, along with Adrienne Maloof, Lisa Vanderpump and Taylor Armstrong.
The only surprises here are that Kim and Taylor will be returning. Some expected these two women not to be included next season
because of the serious issues they faced last year, both on screen and off. Taylor dealt with an abusive marriage and the suicide of her husband Russell Armstrong, and Kim often put on open displays of her alcohol abuse on the show.
In addition to the core of the cast re-signing contracts, it looks like Brandi Glanville will be back too, though it is unclear if she is coming back as a full time housewife, or a "friend of the housewives" as she was billed last season.
"Brandi will be back for a third season as well," the insider told RadarOnline. "Her addition to the show as a lot of fun and really mixed things up."
There was no word from the insider on other "friend of the housewives" Dana Wilkey. We would like to assume this means that she will be gone, but Dana tweeted today
, "'Assume' means makes an ass out of u and me. A great business person told me that." So I guess we got burned on that one and shouldn't go around making assumptions about boring Housewives.
Even though most of the cast is returning, there is still a hole left where Queen Camille once rained. The most recently rumored cast member is Yolanda Hadid, music producer David Foster's wife. But you can see a whole list of prospective Hills Housewives here
