Lots of speculation on possible new 'Housewives' of late, not that I know who this chick is either:
Move over, Camille Grammer. There's a new housewife in town.
According to a source close to casting for "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," Robbie Williams' 31-year-old wife, Ayda Field, was recently approached to join the cast of the Bravo reality series.
Our source tells us that approximately two weeks ago, the British pop singer's wife got a call about being on the show. While Field hasn't signed anything yet, it's "very likely" she could be the next addition to the television hit, which was made up of Taylor Armstrong, Adrienne Maloof, Lisa Vanderpump, Kim and Kyle Richards and Kelsey Grammer's ex-wife of 13 years, Camille Grammer (nee Donatacci), during season one.
And Ayda, who has lived in Mulholland Estates in LA since she wed Williams last August, has the goods to back it up. Her hubby, the best-selling British solo artist in the UK, is estimated to have a net worth of anywhere between $120 and $140M.
But would the American actress mesh well with Camille, a former Playboy actress and mother of two, who was named the "Most Hated Housewife" by Life & Style magazine?
She may not have to: It is still unknown whether the 42-year-old will be returning for a second season, although the option has not been ruled out for the divorcee.
While her fate hangs in the wings, other housewives are grasping onto theirs. Lisa Vanderpump, who lunched with Field at Villa Blanca in January, has found her own way to knock out the competition. The insider says the casting team was interested in finding a "younger blond" to add to the bevy of Beverly Hills beauties, and the sharp-tongued Brit and oldest of the cast at 50, "wasn't too thrilled."
To secure her spot, Vanderpump attempted to deter those in her zip code interested in auditioning by "telling everyone" within earshot what a "bad experience" she had filming season one.
