Caitlyn Jenner and Sophia Hutchins 'in talks' to join 'RHOBH', viewers 'hope this is a joke'
According to sources, Sophia's team has reached out to the producers of 'RHOBH' to discuss her and Caitlyn's participation on Season 11
Caitlyn Jenner and her manager since 2018, Sophia Hutchins, have been vocal about their interests in being a part of the Beverly Hills iteration of 'Real Housewives'. If all goes well, the Olympian and her manager/best friend/roommate will be seen on Season 11 of 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'.
On Sunday, TMZ reported that sources close to both women revealed that Sophia recently met with former 'Housewives' castmate Eileen Davidson. They talked about the show and the conversation veered towards discussing the possibility of Sophia filling in a position on the show. The outlet also reported that the discussions also included Eileen's experience as a housewife which was mostly positive and this was enough for Sophia to make a decision that she'd like to be a part of 'RHOBH'.
Sophia's team has already reached out to production to make this happen, according to sources. They've been discussing her appearance as the main cast member and her roommate Caitlyn as "a friend of the show".
Earlier in March this year, both Hutchins and Jenner said in an interview with ET that they'd jump at Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Erika Girardi, Dorit Kemsley and Garcelle Beauvais "in two seconds," according to Daily Mail. "I honestly kind of got into it," Caitlyn said. "You know, I've done reality television pretty much all my life — sports is reality television — and I was watching that and saying, "I could see myself getting in there with some of the drama."
Sophia and Caitlyn met through a makeup artist and have been inseparable ever since they even live together in a $3.5M 11-acre four-bedroom hilltop home in Malibu. Sophia (born Scott) told Pepperdine's Graphic that she initially identified as a gay man but had an awakening about her true self after she saw then-Bruce's 20/20 interview about her gender affirmation in 2015.
Caitlyn has appeared on ITV 1 series 'I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here' last year, her E! spin-off 'I Am Cait' in 2016, as well as 155 episodes of E! reality show 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians'(2007-2020). Sophia has yet to appear on any show but if all goes well, 'RHOBH' would be her first TV outing.
"NO WAY ...both those two choices Suck. I don't want to watch either of those two. Sutton is a good choice to keep but you're striking out with those two. Yuck Yuck Yuck...keep it moving," wrote a fan of the show. Another fan harboring similar thoughts tweeted, "Please don’t make me quit on RHOBH. Caitlyn Jenner? Noooooo!" There were also a lot of fans who thought that this would almost be impossible because Caitlyn is a septuagenarian and judging all iterations of 'RH', the show has always replaced axed/quitting housewives with younger castmates. However quashing the same, one fan wrote, "I don't think they would bring anything interesting to the show! Age has nothing to do with it." Another fan wrote, "@Andy please NO to Kaitlyn Jenner joining RHOBH. It’s not the right fit. Your show will go down the tubes fast !!!"Another tweet read, "Caitlyn Jenner's voice is the most annoying sound in the world. RHOBH I hope this is a joke!" Another fan wrote, "Really Bravo must really really not have ratings to entertain Caitlyn Jenner on RHOBH...Like so you couldn’t get Kris Jenner so you go ask Her...I’m sorry I don’t want to see her. Them storylines must be dry as hell if you are doing this. #RHOBH #Bravo"
