With the season 4 reunion wrapped, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are negotiating their contracts for season 5, and RadarOnline is reporting the veteran cast members are demanding a significant pay raise. Despite rumors that Kim Richards was getting the axe, and her sister Kyle following, the site states that Kim and Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump and Brandi Glanville are all currently negotiating their contracts for the next season.
â€œBravo loves the nucleus of these four women, even when theyâ€™reÂ fighting with each other! They always bring drama and glamor to the show. The network has resolved that it wants to bring them back,” said one source, adding,Â â€œJust like the New York ladies, the Beverly Hills cast want more money and theyâ€™re hoping that because their ratings were so high this season, the network will buckle and pay them more.”
The women are confident they will succeed.Â â€œLisa, Brandi and Kyle are all smart business women and theyâ€™re going to play hardball with the network,â€ dished another insider.Â â€œBrandi has said that she wants to make the $250,000 that the other women make, but they want even more this season.Â One problem with them banding together is that they all genuinelyÂ hate each other right now!â€
And the fate of new Housewives Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia is still unknown. After reports they will be fired, the insider dished,Â â€œThey havenâ€™t beenÂ given contracts yetÂ and itâ€™s known how producers want new people to come on the show to reinvigorate things.”
