What’s better than one soap opera star? Two soap opera stars, of course!

New reports are emerging today, July 24, saying that in addition to Lisa Rinna’s supposed casting for Season 5 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she’ll be joined by Eileen Davidson, a fellow daytime TV star. Sources are telling People the 55-year-old actress will be joining the cast, though Bravo is (still) not commenting on either Lisa or Eileen’s casting.

Lisa and Eileen will be taking the places of Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud, as both were fired after their first season on the Bravo series. And while these supposed new additions may be new to reality TV that doesn’t mean they don’t have experience as co-stars.


What show did these two appear on together? That would be Days of Our Lives! As People points out, Eileen began her stint on the show in 1993 as Kristen DiMera, one of the series’ big villains, and Lisa played Billie Reed from 1992 to 1995. After completing their runs on the show, both returned years later to reprise the memorable roles.

We’re excited about the prospect of Eileen joining the cast! Bringing on these ladies with long TV careers can only mean that there’s a better chance to bring in new fans of the reality series. If these castings prove to be real, we give Bravo major kudos.
