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 â€œpost-rehab plans may include a turn on reality TV,â€ as sheâ€™s now allegedly in discussions to join the Beverly Hills edition of Real Housewives. An â€œinsiderâ€ is quoted by the mag, saying that producer Andy Cohen â€œhas been after her to join the show for years.â€ After apparently turning down such opportunities in the past, the tabloid suggests â€œnow may finally be the right time.â€
â€œHer people think it might be a good way for her to stay accountable and sober,â€ claims the source. Thatâ€™s an odd comment given that the cast members on the show regularly drink alcohol. But the mag insists the â€œhope the reality show could be the start of a comeback for the star.â€
â€œShe still has a huge fan base from her days on Dynasty and Melrose Place. She would make the perfect Housewife.â€ Gossip Cop isnâ€™t sure how those roles ensure Locklear would be the â€œperfect Housewife.â€ Regardless, the source says she’s â€œdeciding whether to join the show.â€
But Gossip Cop has learned there is nothing to decide. A spokesperson for Locklear exclusively shares with the site that itâ€™s â€œnot trueâ€ she is in talks to join RHOBH.
