Bravo TV producers have reportedly approached two potential new cast members to join the hit reality TV show The "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."

Hollywood SOAP actress, Lisa Rinna, 49, is said to be in the running to join the popular show in season four, along with Baroness Monica Von Neumann, who is a wealthy socialite in Beverly Hills. Both are being considered to replace Adrienne Maloof and Neumann could become the first African American 'Housewife' to join the Beverly Hills franchise.

Rinna, who often works as a TV host, is best known for her roles on "Days of Our Lives" and Melrose Place. The mother of two is married to actor Harry Hamlin and she is currently starring on Donald Trump's All-Star "Celebrity Apprentice."

"Lisa is married to a super hunky actor, she's rich and she isn't afraid to stand up for herself or call anyone out," a source told RadarOnline.

"Lisa would be brought on to the show to stir up ----, especially with Brandi [Glanville] and that's exactly the new life that the show needs!" the source went on.

Neumann, who once modeled for Dior and Yves St. Laurent, was given a royal title after she married the late Austrian Baron John von Neumann, who is the first importer of Volkswagens to the U.S. and son of the doctor to the King of England and Spain. Neumann lost her husband to cancer in 2003 and she now spends her days making luxury items and doing interior design for friends.

In February, Bravo TV producers reportedly called Nemann in for an interview and a source claims that it went extremely well.

"It went really well. She had them cracking up. The producers asked about her past, where she lived, and why she's a Baroness. They appear to really love the idea of having her on the show," the source said.
