Reports state that neither Joyce nor Carlton have impressed Bravo enough to be kept for season 5. Also, it has been stated before and is being stated again that Kim Richards will not be returning - much to the chagrin of sister Kyle Richards who is likely to return with Lisa and Yolanda unless she quits (which she has threatened to do if Kim is fired).
Also, reports say that Lisa and Yolanda want Mohamed’s fiancee, Shiva Safai, to be on the show. She has made a few guest appearances this season, and is rumored to be a pick for one of the Housewives next season.
Honestly, none of this surprises me. I personally like Carlton but I don’t think she brought a lot to the show. Joyce is just try hard - she’s not really all that. As far as Kim goes - I have no idea how she even made it this far! She really no longer brings anything to the show. It’s kind of sad watching her scenes sometimes.
I think Shiva will be a good addition to the show because not only is she young and beautiful, but she’s rich and she will bring to the show that fabulous lifestyle that we were use to seeing in the first season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
