Brandi Glanville wants LeAnn Rimes to join the cast of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills.
While the pair have been involved in a public and bitter feud over LeAnn's current and Brandi's former husband Eddie Cibrian, Brandi, 40, wants LeAnn to join the reality series in order to make her look better.
"Brandi is a very smart cookie and thinks that if LeAnn were to join the cast, the audience would hate her even more. Brandi loves playing the victim and having LeAnn on the show would allow her to continue in that role as the long-suffering, spurned ex-wife," a source said.
"I think it's important to watch the end of the world happening."

Paris Hilton had to turn down a guest role in the finale of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
The hotel heiress was asked by producers of the hit reality TV show to appear alongside her aunts, Kyle and Kim Richards, but she was forced to decline because she is out of the country on business.
"Paris was asked to be a part of the finale which will take place in mid-July. She is a big fan of the show and totally supports her family appearing on it, but had to decline because she will be out of the country. Paris will be extremely busy promoting her new album, and just has too much going on right now to commit to taking on anymore projects," a source said.
Kyle and Kim were also disappointed Paris couldn't take part as they know she would have been a hit. "Producers were hopeful Paris would be able to be a part of the finale, which they could have promoted and publicised. Paris definitely would have greatly bolstered the ratings for the finale, but, her schedule just couldn't accommodate it. Paris' aunts, Kim and Kyle also wanted her to be on the show, but they completely understand," the source added.
A few weeks ago I said the Real Housewives franchise was coming dangerously close to becoming the next Real World. Who knew it was actually the other way around?
Weeks before the launch of Season 22, the producers of the MTV series announced their newest destination: Washington, D.C. That’s the same location Housewives will be hitting up next. Has President Obama started a trend?
“Young people have never been more engaged in what’s happening in this country and Washington, D.C., is the perfect place for The Real World cast to express their opinions and pursue their passions,” executive producer Jonathan Murray said in a statement.
Look for the nation’s capital edition to debut sometime in 2010. Meanwhile, Real World: Cancun premieres on June 24.

As if the nation’s capital needed any more drama.
Bravo - in an apparent attempt to dilute The Real Housewives franchise like MTV with The Real World - has just put out its feelers for a new city. Today, the cable channel announced that it’s heading further east.
“We’re tapping personalities who are among Washington D.C.‘s influential players, cultural connoisseurs, fashion sophisticates and philanthropic leaders - the people who rub elbows with the most prominent people in the country and easily move in the city’s diverse political and social circles,” Frances Berwick, Bravo Media’s Executive Vice President and General Manager said.
Casting for The Real Housewives of D.C. is still underway. Those with a pulse on the “most important” events around the city and are knowledgable about issues including fashion and economics are being sought after.
Previous installments of the popular docu-series have explored the Orange County, New York and Atlanta regions. The Real Housewives of New Jersey debuted several weeks ago.

Apparently ‘real housewives’ exist everywhere…
An announcement made by Bravo today had me intrigued yet thoroughly confused at the same time. Just two months after teasing us with news about The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the cable channel has already made plans to dissect the ladies of another city: Atlanta. Does this mean Jersey is no longer a go?
According to the network’s press release, the series will follow “five women from Atlanta’s social elite from NBA and NFL wives to sassy single moms as they juggle their burgeoning careers and busy home lives with the whirl of the south’s hottest city.”
