We have finally found out what is really delaying the start of filming on season 5 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills… money! TMZ is reporting the women are “refusing to sign contracts to film the next season of the show, effectively staging a holdout until they ALL get more money.”
According to the site, five women have been asked back; Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards, Brandi Glanville, and Yolanda Foster, but no one has agreed to come back.
Sources tell the site, “negotiations have been intense, but Bravo is close to finalizing deals for everyone except Lisa, who remains a question mark.”
As for who is replacing Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia, insiders tell TMZ Mohammed Hadid’s fiancee Shiva Safai is a front-runner.
