Bravo has plans to add some fresh blood into the mix for season 11 of Vanderpump Rules. Let’s break down everything we know.
It seems that Bravo wants to capitalize off the success of Scandoval by doing everything and anything they can to make sure season 11 of Vanderpump Rules is as successful as possible – even if that means adding some new cast members into the mix to keep the drama spicy AF.
Bravo “is looking to bring in some new cast members,” a source tells Entertainment Tonight. The source adds that “They have started having outbound conversations.”
Reportedly Lala Kent and Katie Maloney “are looking in their external friend groups to see who might be a good fit for the show.”
“They have all signed back on except for Raquel,” the source explains, noting that Raquel and Bravo are currently negotiating her return, but nothing has been finalized.
During the season 10 reunion, Raquel told host Andy Cohen that she was unclear about her future on Vanderpump Rules.
“I don’t know. It’s in question right now. I want to,” she admitted at the time.
According to TMZ, it is highly likely that Raquel will go straight from the mental health facility she’s been staying at for the last two months to filming for season 11 of Pump Rules.
However, it is unclear when Raquel will be leaving treatment, and the longer she waits to leave, the harder it will be for Bravo to work her into the storyline for season 11.
Of course, Bravo doesn’t want to pressure Raquel into returning to the fold too “soon” for fear of her backsliding. Sources say the network “is ready when she’s ready.”
