‘RHOBH’: Andy Cohen Finally Breaks Silence on Caitlyn Jenner Joining Season 11 Cast Rumors
Andy Cohen is seen as the father of all The Real Housewives. The Bravo star serves as an executive producer on all the franchises and has a seat at the table when it comes to casting. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is ready to start filming season 11 as Denise Richards and Teddi Mellencamp announced their exits. Rumored to be joining the cast is Caitlyn Jenner and Cohen is finally breaking his silence on that topic.
Kris Jenner rumored to join ‘RHOBH’
There have been many rumors surrounding RHOBH and its future stars. As season 10 wrapped for the franchise, Keeping Up With the Kardashians also announced they were ending early next year. Reality show fans put two and two together and started dreaming of their dream cast which included Kris Jenner.
The matriarch of the Kardashian family is a reality show maven. Kris has been an executive producer of the E! series since the beginning and is a total boss. She would fit in perfectly with the housewives of Beverly Hills as she is a life-long friend to Kyle Richards.
Buzz around Kris joining RHOBH got so widespread that Cohen had to acknowledge what was happening on social media.
“I got so many DMs and tweets saying, ‘Kris should join the Housewives. She is good friends with Kyle [Richards]. This should happen. Make it happen!’ And then I tweeted that I would be talking about it on the radio today, and I got a whole bunch of tweets saying, ‘Don’t do it.’ It’s so interesting to me,” Cohen revealed on his SiriusXM show Radio Andy.
The Watch What Happens Live late-night host thinks that having Kris on the show would be huge as she personally knows the ladies.
“I think it would be a huge get too, and by the way, she is already connected with the cast,” he added. “She’s good buddies with Kyle. No joke, she knows everyone on the show. She is buddies with [Lisa] Rinna, I think.”
What does Andy Cohen think of Caitlyn Jenner?
As Bravo looks to diversify The Real Housewives franchises by being more inclusive, another name that popped up was Caitlyn Jenner’s along with Sophia Hutchins. However, Cohen shut down the rumor saying that neither are in the running of actually being cast on the show. The WWHL star even implied that the rumor was started by both women.
“This is one of those where the call is coming from inside the house people, as they say,” Cohen said on his SiriusXM show. “I know that they have expressed their interest publicly. On social media they’ve tagged me in posts saying, ‘We think this is a great idea,’ but it is not.”
Cohen went on to say that casting had not reached out to either Caitlyn or Sophia. He also brought up the fact that they don’t have an existing relationship with the women featured on RHOBH currently.
“If Caitlyn knew any… Caitlyn must know… You know, the thing about it is Kris was, Kris is good friends with Kyle, like, they are legitimately really good friends. Um, and so, yeah, I know. I just don’t see it,” he added.
The new season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is rumored to be starting in the coming weeks and start airing at the beginning of 2021.
