Several names have been dropped as replacements for Camille Grammer on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Everyone from Bruce Willis’s wife to model Yolanda Hadid have been rumored to be joining the Bravo show, and now Radar Online is adding another beauty to the ever-growing list: Diana Roque Ellis. (For the record, Emma Hemming, aka Mrs. Bruce Willis, isn’t keen to jump on the reality show band wagon anytime soon.)
An insider dishes that Diana — the widow of William H. Ellis, who once owned Farley's & Sathers Candy Company — is no stranger to Housewife life. She’s allegedly good friends with Adrienne Maloof and has even attended a housewife function or two, including Kyle Richards’s notorious white party last year.
According to Radar, Bravo is wasting no time making the new addition feel at home. The network is allegedly already shooting Diana and her home for promos, the source revealed.
Based on her MySpace page, Diana sounds like she’d be a fun addition. “Despite my advanced age (old enough to be your Grandmother)and vast experience, (married almost as many times as Liz) I am still willing to admit I have been looking for ‘Prince Charming,’ or whoever the modern interpretation of such a projection would be,” she wrote. Her deceased husband was 76 when he died in 2000 — and he had sold his company for $250 million a few years earlier.
Diana is also an artist who creates “original portraiture, breathtaking, full-size renderings of the private lives of dignitaries, and families,” according to her website. The latest rumored Housewife is 53 years old, though she looks fantastic for her age.
We don’t know if anyone can replace Cam Gram, but we’d love to follow Diana on her quest for Prince Charming…
