Shayne Lamas Might Join ‘The Real Housewives of Orange County’ — Report
Hold onto your roses, Bachelor Nation! One of the biggest names from the franchise might be headed to The Real Housewives of Orange County as the newest cast member come Season 11.
Shayne Lamas and husband Nik Richie are rumored to be in talks to join the OG installment of Bravo’s popular franchise but are hitting snags when it comes to ironing out the details, according to reports.
“Producers would love to get Nik and Shayne for next season,” an insider tells Popdust. “They’re young, they’re attractive, they would bring plenty of drama, and they have a high public profile — they’re pretty much everything the show needs if it has any hope of growing into the future, and returning to the days when they were pulling in 2.5 million plus viewers an episode.”
Why haven’t they sealed the deal yet? The couple, who appeared in this week’s episode of RHOC, is not on the same page with producers. Sources say every time they get close to signing on the dotted line, Nik throws a wrench in the plans with new demands or setting sights on more money.
Shayne, who won Matt Grant’s heart on The Bachelor Season 12, married Nik back in 2010 and the couple have two children together, Press and Lyon. They’ve had some rough patches during their marriage (they appeared on Couples Therapy, after all) and could definitely breathe new life into RHOC.
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
