According to Radar Online
, Kyle Richards, Faye's number one ally, told friends that not only will Faye turn down any offers to be a full-time cast member, but she won't be appearing on the show at all anymore because it is ruining her life.
"Faye is a tough cookie, so for her to say that things have become so bad that she is finished with the show is a big development," an inside source told Radar. "She's a very successful interior designer and being on the show is just bad for business."
Faye should already be well acquainted with garnering a bad reputation through her public image as she famously used the murder of her best friend Nicole Simpson
to gain enough notoriety to pose for Playboy
. This season, she's been faced with an onslaught of hateful tweets and blog comments after being on the wrong end of a feud with fan favorites Lisa Vanderpump and Brandi Glanville.
The insider also claims that Faye was being considered by the producers to replace Adrienne Maloof, who departed quite suddenly
after not attending the reunion taping.
"Faye was being courted to replace Adrienne next season," the insider said. "Lisa and Brandi need someone to fight and spar with now that Adrienne is gone. Producers are extremely disappointed Faye won't be back next season because the drama is ratings gold, but, quite frankly, it just isn't worth it for her to be on the show."
As for who will be cast for next season, rumors continue to circulate. LeAnn Rimes
and Penny Lancaster's
names have been thrown around, but now it looks like Bravo is zeroing in on Baroness Monica Von Neumann
. An inside source says that the Baroness has already met with Bravo executives and they were all very impressed by her.
