Bravo is always looking for the next Real Housewife to join the series and a new report claims actress Heather Locklear is in talks to join season nine of RHOBH.
An article from In Touch claims that Heather’s “post-rehab plans may include a turn on reality TV,” as she’s now allegedly in discussions to join the Beverly Hills edition of Real Housewives. An “insider” is quoted by the mag, saying that producer Andy Cohen “has been after her to join the show for years.” After apparently turning down such opportunities in the past, the tabloid suggests “now may finally be the right time.”
“Her people think it might be a good way for her to stay accountable and sober,” claims the source. That’s an odd comment given that the cast members on the show regularly drink alcohol. But the mag insists the “hope the reality show could be the start of a comeback for the star.”
“She still has a huge fan base from her days on Dynasty and Melrose Place. She would make the perfect Housewife.” Gossip Cop isn’t sure how those roles ensure Locklear would be the “perfect Housewife.” Regardless, the source says she’s “deciding whether to join the show.”
But Gossip Cop has learned there is nothing to decide. A spokesperson for Locklear exclusively shares with the site that it’s “not true” she is in talks to join RHOBH.
