'RHOBH' Season 7 Cast: Sumner Redstone Ex Sydney Holland Joins Show? [VIDEO]
'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' may have at least one new face when the series returns for season seven later this year.
Could Sydney Holland be the latest addition to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?
According to a new report, Holland, who split from her billionaire boyfriend at the end of last year, recently pitched herself to producers for a role on the series' upcoming seventh season.
"Viacom mogul Sumner Redstone's ex-girlfriend Sydney Holland is in the running to nab a spot on season 7 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," Us Weekly reported on Tuesday.
The Hollywood Reporter was first to break news of Holland's possible addition to the show, claiming she may soon appear alongside Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Yolanda Foster and Lisa Rinna. However, it is unclear whether the outlet's failure to mention Eileen Davidson, Kathryn Edwards and Erika Jayne suggests they will not return.
"Though no decisions have been made, Holland — who was with the billionaire Viacom and CBS mogul for five years — has a backstory that rivals any in the ZIP code," The Hollywood Reported explained. "After being introduced by Millionaire Matchmaker star Patti Stanger, Holland began dating Redstone and quickly established herself as an influential figure in his life. Along with longtime Redstone companion Manuela Herzer, Holland was a regular presence at his mansion, traveled with him and bought real estate using the millions of dollars in gifts the mogul gave her."
According to the report, Holland was "abruptly ejected" from Redstone’s home last fall after she allegedly engaged in an affair with an unnamed actor.
While Bravo has yet to comment on Holland's possible addition, THR's source claimed her or her reps created a "sizzle reel" for casting which was presented to producers.
Following the fifth season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Erika Jayne and Kathryn Edwards were brought to the show as Kim Richards and Brandi Glanville left. And although Richards and Glanville eventually returned, there has been no indication of them returning in a full-time role for season seven.
As for Jayne and Edwards' possible returns, their end-of-the-coach seating at the reunion may have suggested they were on the chopping block.
