Shayne Lamas may be coming to the cast of Real Housewives of Orange County next season. Lamas is reportedly in talks with Bravo to be added as the sixth housewife. Currently, only New Jersey and Orange County have just five housewivesÂ—all other franchises have six.
Lamas, who won The Bachelor season 12, is currently married to TheDirty.com founder Nik Richie. The couple has one child, Press, who is 6 months old. Lamas has also appeared on the reality show Leave It To Lamas, daytime soap General Hospital, and a few other shows. Will Real Housewives of Orange County be the next thing she adds to her resume?
“Shayne has been approached about joining the show,” a network source told Radar Online. “It’s early days still and it’s at the initial talks stage but there’s a real interest in her joining.”
As it turns out, Shayne Lamas and Nik Richie have already been getting to know the cast. They attended a Wines by Wives event earlier this week where they were seen getting close with Tamra Barney!
“Producers are very interested in Shayne, as well as her husband Nik, combined they lead a pretty interesting and fun life!” Plus, she’s an actual wife so that would bring the RHOC ratio up from 2 out of 5 to 3 out of 6!
