UPDATE: Sorry, Dr. Chiu, but the casting rumors are back! An insider told RadarOnline that Christine is still toying with the idea of joining the Beverly Hills cast, and Bravo executives are trying to figure out if she'll be a good fit.

“Christine is definitely in the running to join the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” the source told Radar. “She has the lifestyle producers are looking for, but there’s something holding them back because this is the third season they’ve tested her for.”

Third time's the charm, perhaps? Christine was spotted filming with Brandi Glanville last week, and Radar added that her husband, Dr. Gabriel Chiu, is good friends with Adrienne Maloof's ex, Dr. Paul Nassif.

The source said Christine fits in well, but they don't know yet which "team" she'd be on and what storyline she'd bring to the show. So apparently the drama manufacturing must be done in advance.

Do you think Christine will join the cast, or is this just a false alarm rumor?

Original story (6/9/2014): 

Ever since Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia were fired from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, there’s been speculation about who might be joining the rest of the returning reality stars for Season 5. Who’s the latest rumored Housewife joining the group, Christine Chiu, and are the rumors true? Read on to find out!

Last Thursday, June 5, blonde bombshell Brandi Glanville stepped out with Asian beauty Christine Chiu at Vampire Lounge & Tasting Room in West Hollywood. The two arrived separately — Christine drove her black Ferrari, of course — but both were carrying matching Saks Fifth Avenue shopping bags.

According to Daily Mail, there were cameras alongside the ladies during their outing, and they speculated that she might be joining the cast of RHOBH for Season 5. After all, with someone as beautiful as Christine, whose husband is Dr. Gabriel Chiu (plastic surgeon to the stars), it would be hard to not want to put her on TV. So what’s the lowdown?

“It's all rumors. Please stop spreading them. Much appreciated! x Christine,” Dr. Chiu tweeted for his wife on June 7.

Well, there you have it! Even though Christine is a hottie with a body and seems to be friends with at least one reality star, she won’t be joining the Bravo series this year. Hopefully the rumors of the cameras were true and we’ll at least get to see her interact with Brandi on an episode or two.

Who do you think will join the cast of RHOBH next season? Hit the comments and start speculating.
