The two new housewives who were brought on for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 4, Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud have both been fired, according to Us Weekly.
Carlton, known on the show for being Wiccan, and Joyce, the Puerto Rican beauty queen, each only appeared on one season of the show.
“Decisions were made and Joyce and Carlton have been informed that they’re not coming back,” an insider said.
Bravo has yet to make any official comments regarding the firings, and Carlton claims that no one from the network has personally informed her yet.
“I sort of look at it as a blessing in disguise because my husband does have a project in the works, a reality show,” Carlton told E! News. “It’s something that would give me the opportunity to work with him.” I was contractually obligated for a three-year deal and if that’s the case, I’m not anymore.”
As far as her experience goes, she’s not leaving with any bitterness.
“I really have enjoyed working for Bravo,” Carlton said. “I would like to go into a show and not have to watch the knives coming at my back. That would be great.”
Joyce has yet to make a public comment about being let go, but she spoke to TMZ back in February when rumors of her departure started.
“I have a great life, regardless of the show or not,” Joyce told TMZ. “So it’s not something that causes me to lose sleep at night [if I wasn’t asked back]. But it’s a mutual decision we’d have to talk about after the reunion.”
As for who will replace these two (and if anyone else in the cast will leave) it’s still anyone’s guess. According to RadarOnline, Lisa Vanderpump and Yolanda Foster are trying to get Yolanda’s ex-husband’s fiance, Shiva Safai, a spot on the show. But other sources say that Lisa may not want to come back at all. There’s also a rumor that if The Real Housewives of Miami isn’t renewed, Joanna Krupa will leave Miami for Beverly Hills where she has a second home.
