It's obvious that BRAVO's Real Housewives franchise has become a juggernaut in its own right. All the ladies associated with the shows have gone on to do a multitude of things, from skin care lines to cookbooks to extraordinary dance singles!
So its not very shocking that Star Magazine is reporting that when the network started looking for the cast for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, more than 500 women showed up to the auditions.
What is surprising is how many big names were cut from the series. Granted, we're not talking Angelina Jolie here, but still, these women have some star power in their own way.
Some of the reported ladies axed from the reality show roster were Lisa Rinna, Marla Maples, Shawn King and Alana Stewart!
Wow! Just that lineup alone would have made for some interesting television!
Lisa, invite the rest of them onto your show! We want to see what could have been!
