Yolanda Hadid, the former Dutch supermodel and fourth wife of music mogul David Foster, is set to join the cast for season three of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
, according to RadarOnline
The vacancy in the cast comes from Camille Grammer's exit
, after she and the producers could not come to an agreement on her contract and exposure on the show. And after many rumors of other celebrities
taking Camille's place, an insider at Radar confirms that Yolanda will join the cast.
Yolanda, a former model who is now married to David Foster, is an old friend of Lisa Vanderpump's and is rumored to have already begun filming season three with the rest of the returning cast members.
"What most people don't realize is that Yolanda was married to Lisa's good friend, Mohamed Hadid," the source said. Mohamed has often appeared on the show and even threw Lisa's daughter Pandora a lavish engagement party. "Yolanda is going to make an excellent addition to the cast and she can definitely hold her ground if the claws come out; she is no shrinking violet."
Although Camille has made an official exit as a full-time cast member, she and "friend of the housewives" Dana Wilkey may be appearing with small cameos at social functions.
Taylor Armstrong, while returning to RHOBH
, will be phased out
due to her dark life struggles and a possible alcohol addiction. Upon her impending leave, the casting rumors are sure to flare up once again. Gina PusateriContributing Writer(Image courtesy of WENN)
