UPDATE: It's a "no go," according to RumorFix, which cites sources "close to the production" who say Brenda is not joining the cast.

Is The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills big enough for two blonde, forty-something models?

Brandi Glanville will always be one of our favorite Housewives, but recent rumors suggest producers are going after a new cast member who uncannily resembles her — on paper, at least.

The Beverly Hills Courier reports 40-year-old former model Brenda Soleimani was approached by Bravo producers to join the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 4 cast. Brenda has yet to make a decision about joining the show.

While our girl Brandi has all but hung up her modeling hat, Brenda is embarking on a new career in front of the camera. She recently posed for a shoot with Playboy photographer Stephen Wayda, who’s shot more than 150 covers for the sexy men’s magazine. For the record, Brenda didn’t go au naturale for the camera, so it sounds like Camille Grammer would approve of her spread.

Brenda decided to pursue a modeling career after chatting with Beverly Hills publicist Hal Lifson; they met while waiting to pick up their children from school. Like Brandi, Brenda is a mother of two.

“I want women to know that even at 40, you still have opportunities out there, whether it’s modeling or getting into a new career,” Brenda told the Beverly Hills Courier. “Put yourself out there and go for it.”

From the sound of it, joining RHoBH could be just the kind of opportunity Brenda is looking for!
