Yolanda Hadid is officially the sixth housewife of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' third season. Many had speculated that Brandi Glanville would replace Camille Grammer who opted out after producers wanted to film her boyfriend and children, but no, Bravo is bringing someone new!
Hadid is the fourth wife of legendary music producer, David Foster, and she already has ties to the cast. "What most people don't realize is that Yolanda was married to Lisa's very good friend, Mohamed Hadid. Mohamed has appeared several times on the show, including during the last season when he threw an over the top engagement party for Lisa's daughter, Pandora," a show insider told Radar Online.
The source also reports that Hadid, who is a Dutch model, "can definitely hold her ground if the claws come out; she is no shrinking violet." That explains why Bravo chose her. After saying goodbye to wallflowers Camille and Dana, they are clearly steering the show in a different direction.
Yolanda Hadid and the other five ladies began filming last week and fans we likely see a premiere some time in September!
