Since there is mucho speculation as to whether The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will return for a second season (come on, Bravo, what are you waiting for?), sources have been dishing on the parade of potential new additions to the cast who have purportedly been meeting with Bravo’s production team and casting execs. If you’re mixing up your Courtney Hansens with your Jeanie Busses, don’t worry, we’ve got your handy guide to the possible future Housewives right here.
Jennifer Flavin Stallone
The statuesque third wife of Rambo, er, Sylvester Stallone, is 43, gorgeous, a former model, and a mother of three. As the owner of a billion-dollar skincare line, Jennifer can certainly hold her own amongst the other business-savvy Housewives, but we’re not sure if this beauty can bring the drama; though, as someone who has six siblings, Mrs. Stallone is probably used to squabbling.
Drama potential: 3
Remember when LeAnn Rimes divorced her husband amidst claims that she was having an affair with her Lifetime movie co-star Eddie Cibrian, who was also married? Brandi Glanville is his ex-wife. If that’s not saucy enough for you, the 36-year-old makeup artist is also longtime buddies with Lisa Vanderpump’s un-permanent houseguest, Cedric Martinez. Sadly, rumors of her involvement in RHoBH have been greatly exaggerated.
Host of Spike’s automotive show Powerblock and the daughter of a racecar driver, Courtney Hansen sounds like more of a guy’s girl than a Housewife, though she is the former president of her University of Florida sorority. Courtney tied the knot with Ilya Sapritsky, who is the managing director of a pharmaceutical company, in March of 2010. At only 33, the Minnesota native would be the youngest of the Beverly Hills bunch, and the bubbly beauty could therefore have Taylor Armstrong constantly on the lookout for any signs that Courtney’s a cowboy-stealing home wrecker.

Because there must always be a Housewife with a Playboy past, Bravo is also in talks with Jeannie Buss. But Jeannie is more Adrienne Maloof than Camille Grammer. The daughter of Lakers’ owner Dr. Jerry Buss and girlfriend of coach Phil Jackson, this basketball bombshell is the vice president of the team. No stranger to the camera, Jeanie has been jonesing for her own reality show and documenting her workplace romance for my.lakers.com, though the video content is more b-ball strategizing than scandalicious dish.

If you take Taylor Armstrong’s lips, Kim Zolciak’s music career, just about any of the Housewives’ breast implants, and New York’s Alex McCord’s husband, you get 24-year-old Heidi Montag. The Hills star brought a fair amount of drama to the MTV reality show, but is RHoBH ready for a Speidi invasion? We’re guessing no, but oh boy, would we love to see crystal-loving Spencer Pratt get all woo-woo with Allison DuBois, only to have Lisa cut him down to size with her awesomely acid tongue.
