While we maintain that no one will be able to fill the void left with the departure of our beloved Camille Grammer, it appears that the latest addition to the cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Yolanda Hadid, will have no problem fitting in - and butting heads - with her co-stars!
While the Dutch model is now married to music producer David Foster - who also encouraged her involvement in the series - she USED to be married to a frequent guest star Mohammed Hadid (AKA the guy with the mermaid)…and that may put her at odds with Lisa Vanderpump, with whom he is still great friends!
As a source explains:
"David and Yolanda got married late last year, and he encouraged her to join the show because he thought it would be fun for her to do. He is extremely proud of his wife and wants the world to see how lucky he is to be married to her. David is no stranger to reality television; when he was married to his third wife, Linda Thompson, they were both featured on the Fox reality show The Princes Of Malibu, which dealt with his relationship with his then step-sons, Brody and Brandon Jenner. David is very respected in the entertainment industry and trusts that Yolanda will only have a positive experience by joining the cast."
“What most people don't realize is that Yolanda was married to Lisa Vanderpump's very good friend Mohamed Hadid. Mohamed has appeared several times on the show, including during the last season when he threw an over the top engagement party for Lisa's daughter Pandora. Yolanda is going to make an excellent addition to the cast and she can definitely hold her ground if the claws come out, she is no shrinking violet. The women aren’t friends in real life so when they get back together they just continue bickering about everything that they were mad about last season. There is definitely going to be tension between Yolanda and Lisa over some past legal wrangles that have gone on. As always, the women are going to be asked to pick sides and of course there will be lots of fighting once the tension starts building."
Well, you can't deny producers don't know how to get those sparks to fly!
And after the drama that naturally stemmed from Taylor and Kim's personal problems last season, we imagine the folks at Bravo are very determined to make sure this round isn't a disappointment, comparatively!
We shall certainly see, won't we?!
