There goes the neighborhood.
With one too-crazy-to-be-true (aka successful) season already behind them, plans to shake up the second season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are already underway, E! News has learned.
Though the cacophonous original cast made for the perfect mix of gilded interiors, catfighting and crocodile tears, word is the network is looking to lose one star and bring in a new taut 'n' toned Housewife (or two).
Meet the gals on Bravo's wish list:
• Jeanie Buss: The Lakers executive VP (and daughter of team owner Jerry Buss) is no more of a housewife than Kobe Bryant is, but she would definitely add some power couple pizazz and what would appear to be a refreshing set of brains and natural beauty. Jeanie, who was married once to U.S. Olympic volleyball champ Steve Timmons, has been dating Lakers coach Phil Jackson since 2001. But just because the 49-year-old exec seems to have a head on her shoulders, don't assume all will be well in 90210-land: She has a built-in rival in Adrienne Maloof, who owns the Sacramento Kings.
• Brandi Glanville Otherwise known as Eddie Cibrian's ex-wife, the blond bombshell has two young kids and a chip on her shoulder. Once again, she's not a housewife, but she is a talkative scenester who recently learned that she won't be facing DUI charges for a 2010 arrest. And, she already has a raison d'être: Glanville could be the one to make Lisa Vanderpump's blood boil next season due to her friendship with the alleged houseguest-from-hell Cedric Martinez. "He's my gay best friend! I've known him for 16 years," Glanville recently told E! News. Memo to Bravo: Lock this one up!
• Jennifer Flavin: Mrs. Sylvester Stallone is a former model who cofounded Serious Skincare, which she now sells on the Home Shopping Network. The mother of three daughters, she's used to being on TV and tabloid covers. E! News has learned that Flavin turned Bravo down when it came calling for season one, but she's in talks at the moment. EW.com reports that Sly isn't in love with the idea—which, if you think about how encouraging Kelsey Grammer was about Camille doing it, actually bodes well for the state of Flavin's nearly 14-year marriage.
• Ayda Field: E! News hears that Robbie Williams' wife of six months has turned down Bravo's offer because the former Days of Our Lives beauty is still interested in scripted TV. "They wanted her very badly, but she will not be going forward with Real Housewives. She is an actress and is pursuing acting, not reality TV," a rep for Fields says. (Eerie connection: Fields played the sexy weathercaster on Back To You, Kelsey Grammer's first post-Frasier sitcom, which lasted one season.)
So here are some names that have been in the mix. Meanwhile, sources have also told E! News that Bravo is looking to get rid of current Housewife Taylor Armstrong after her first-season storyline failed to impress, unlike her lips.
