It looks like soap fans are going to have two great reasons to tune in to the upcoming season of The Real Housewive’s of Beverly Hills. First it was confirmed that former Days of Our Lives star Lisa Rinna had joined the cast and now we are hearing that Eileen Davidson will be doing the same. Eileen currently does double duty on both Days and The Young & the Restless so she has a huge fan base spanning two daytime networks. This is actually a brilliant move on the part of Bravo and Housewives’ franchise producer, Andy Cohen if true.My guess is that Any realizes that soaps still have one of the most loyal fan bases around and adding two stars connected to the genre for over two decades will mean an instant ratings boost. Think about it, if half of those Days fans tune into RHOBH the ratings will soar and that is exactly what Bravo needs. Their numbers have been down and the ladies they have brought in over the last few seasons just aren’t clicking with viewers. Perhaps adding some familiar faces is the real ticket to success here plus we are used to seeing these women in full character but I think it’s always interesting to get a glimpse into their private lives, don’t you?
Are you excited at the thought of Eileen being added to the cast? If you’ve never watched an episode of RHOBH will seeing some familiar soap actresses make you want to check the show out? Has Bravo struck gold with this idea or do you think that the ratings will remain the same regardless of who is cast? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
