Why Rod Stewart's Wife, Penny Lancaster, Turned Down Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Penny Lancaster and Lisa Rinna have something in common—you won't see either of them on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

During an appearance on Katie, Rod Stewart's wife, who got an offer to appear on the show, explained to talk-show host Katie Couric why she refused to be a part of the popular Bravo reality show.

And her explanation was quite simple and to the point.

"Cause I'm not a Beverly Hills wife," Lancaster stated, which drew applause from the audience.

She continued, "I'm from England, as you all probably know, and I consider myself a very down-to-earth, girl next door, so I just wouldn't fit into that."

This casting news comes soon after Rinna slammed rumors that she would be appearing on the reality series, telling E! News, "Basically that was never gonna happen. It was interesting to watch happen without my knowledge." It was also recently revealed that last season's newbie, Marisa Zanuck, was not asked back.

Which means the hunt for the new housewives continues...
