Kathryn Edwards (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) - Part I

Ep. 107

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Kathryn Edwards steps Behind The Rope. Originally from Wisconsin (didn't see that one coming), Kathryn left home at a young age to pursue modeling in Paris, before eventually settling in the famous zip code we have all come to love. Kathryn discusses how she was cast for Season Six of RHOBH and who she knew before the show. We discuss RHOBH Housewives past - Yolanda Hadid and Eden Sassoon and present such as Dorit Kemsley and Erika Jayne. We discuss the influx of actresses to the franchise - Garcelle Beauvais, Lisa Rinna and Denise Richards - and ultimately whether that is a good fit or not. Of course, we also discuss whether Denise really hooked up with Brandi Glanville and what Kathryn knows from being “on the scene” in Beverly Hills. This leads to a larger conversation of what should be included in a reality show, and what, if anything, should be off limits, the influence of producers behind the scenes and the magic of editing. Kathryn recounts her own time on RHOBH, the involvement of production, the edit she received, being thrown into day one middle of the season, and her colleagues she had to work with. She explains her past with Faye Resnick (Kyle Richards’ BFF), OJ Simpson, Robert Kardashian, that famous White Bronco and how that possibly affected the decision to cast her. Finally we discuss the involvement of Lisa’s Vanderpump and Rinna in helping “guide” storylines and just how did Season Six become all about Munchausen’s Syndrome. All this and we are only getting started. Tune in to this Part I sit down with the one and only Kathryn Edwards.
