Lisa Rinna is very close to signing with Bravo to replace Adrienne Maloof on Season 4 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. A friend of Lisa’s tells RadarOnline, Lisa “really, really wants to join the show.” The insider continues, “Producers had initially asked Lisa to become a part of the show when it first launched, but she turned it down because she decided to do her own reality show for TV Land.” (Which was eventually cancelled.)
“Lisa was honored to have effectively been given a second chance and negotiations are going so well that both sides believe the deal could be closed very soon,” the source added.
A production insider believes Rinna would “stir up sh*t” with cast-members, especially, Brandi Glanville, who emerged as a standout in Season three. “She’s exactly the new life that the show needs,” the source said.
“Lisa might come across as very sweet, but she isn’t a pushover. She is also a very successful business owner and hopes to highlight her clothing boutique, Belle Gray, on the show. She has a lot of celebrity clientele and Bravo is hoping they will also agree to appear on camera,” the insider explains.
UPDATE: A rep for Bravo tells E! News there is “no truth” to the rumors that Lisa is joining the show.
