"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" stars Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud will reportedly be replaced next season due to a lack of storylines.
The season four additions appeared to divide the group when they each made their respective debuts and while there has been no shortage of drama since episode one premiered, they will likely not be asked to return for season five. Insiders claim Bravo TV producers are eager to replace Gebbia and Giraud because viewers do not find them exiting enough, according to TMZ.com.
The report comes one month after sources claimed veteran housewife Kim Richards will also be let go this season.
"The network is not entirely happy with the ratings for the current season of Beverly Hills and sadly, despite being Paris Hilton's aunt, [Kim] has little going on in her life," a production source told RadarOnline.com. "Viewers don't care about watching Kim's dog getting training. It's boring!"
Richards' sister Kyle, who has been a strong source of support in recent years, is said to be furious over Bravo's alleged plans to fire the mother of four. While the two have often bickered in the past, they appear to be closer than ever this season and as a result Kyle is reportedly threatening to quit if her sister is fired.
"As you can imagine, Kyle is very unhappy about Bravo's plans. She has made no secret of that fact that she'll threaten to quit if her sister is fired," the insider revealed adding that the show is the "only steady income that Kim has and Kyle doesn't want to financially support her again."
Fellow cast members Brandi Glanville, Yolanda Foster and Lisa Vanderpump are all expected to return next season and fans are calling on producers to add "Real Housewives of Miami" star Joanna Krupa to the cast.
The model, who is embroiled in a feud with Glanville, was asked about the possibility of her joining the Beverly Hills franchise, however, she remained coy.
"I don't know," Krupa told Daily Mail UK.
