Kyle Richards began filming season four of her Bravo reality series The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and opened up about the absence of Adrienne Maloof, who chose to not return as a cast member on the show.
Maloof will not return following a drama-filled season three when one of her co-stars, Brandi Glanville, accused her of using a surrogate for her children. When asked by Wetpaint on April 25 what the new season will be like without Maloof, Richards said, "[Adrienne] really was not around all that much this season. She really didn't show up."
"She distanced herself, and she really alienated herself from all the women this year," Richards added. "So I think we got a feel of what it's going to look like last season."
Richards also confirmed that her good friend Faye Resnick will not return for season four of the show. Richards said Resnick is "wouldn't want to come back."
"People didn't realize she was a cast member. So they were like, 'Why is she like always showing up?' " she added about Resnick. "But she was an official cast member, so that's why she was there so much. But you didn't get to see a well-rounded version of her, and you take that risk when you're not a full-time housewife. She's actually a very good person, but people didn't get to see that side of her."
Camille Grammer will also not return to Housewives for its fourth season along with Marisa Zanuck. The latter said she "wasn't asked back," adding, "It's as simple as that and I'm okay with it."
With so many exits on the show producers are reportedly looking to add another woman to the cast. Among the names circulating is former model and mother-of-two Brenda Soleimani, who told a publication she was approached by Bravo producers to join the reality show's cast.
