Camille Grammer has confirmed she is to quit The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, with attention now turning to her fellow cast-members. Camille was an integral member of the line-up, and fans fear the likes of Brandi Glanville and Kyle Richards will want to get off a sinking ship, reports the Huffington Post.
A Bravo insider dismissed the possibility of further departures, optimistically saying, "Lisa [Vanderpump], Adrienne [Maloof] and Kyle [Richards] have all been invited back and are expected to sign their contracts this week.If all goes according to plan, Kim [Richards] and Brandi [Glanville] will also be part of next season". However, the show's biggest star Taylor Armstrong is still yet to be offered a new contract, with her personal demons likely to affect the producer's decision of reaching out. Her husband tragically took his own life just before the second season aired, and one television insider said, "Kim's battle with substance abuse is much easier to deal with than someone whose husband committed suicide.If they don't invite Taylor back, then she will be free to say whatever she wants. If they do, they will be able to control her, but at the same time they must fear that her participation will turn off viewers".
Bravo bosses are unlikely to make any official announcement on contracts yet - they're still yet to confirm the new cast for the New York version of the show, even though it finished taping two months ago.
