If we were being completely honest, “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” is in desperate need of a change of pace. The second season was a tragic study of watching a relationship fall apart before our eyes (in Taylor and Russell Armstrong), and the third season was not much better with Adrienne Maloof and Dr. Paul Nassif. We really don’t need to see more sadness, and isn’t it time for a little bit of fun?
It’s hard to really ever say what a show will bring to the table before it even airs, but one of the rumored new additions to the cast seems to be confident that they will change it up. Speaking to TMZ, Carlton Gebbia, an actress famous for parts on “The Young and the Restless” and “Suddenly Susan,” claims that if she is on the show (which she cannot confirm just yet), she would look to find ways to empower women and make them feel strong, and not just try to humiliate them by putting so much of a focus on them flipping tables and threatening each other with lawsuits.
Of course, we’re sure that many a housewife has said these sorts of things leading up to the start of a season, but then it’s a completely different sort of universe once you are actually thrust into it. It is then you have people fighting all around you in what is either some sort of deep-seeded personal battle, or a desperate attempt to secure more airtime.
What do you think about Gebbia possibly joining the cast, and is empowerment in your mind actually possible on a show that features such a pendulum swing between goofiness and drama?
