Kyle Richards revealed that she made a casting request for her holiday movie, “The Real Housewives of the North Pole,” but it fell through. The unsuccessful attempt was to bring in her pal from Beverly Hills Lisa Rinna.
“The Real Housewives of North Pole” is Peacock’s first-ever holiday film starring the RHOBH’s very own Kyle Richards and Betsy Brandt as competitive pals Trish and Diana.
You might know Betsy Brandt from her amazing performance as “Marie” in Breaking Bad. While the film itself was not about Bravo’s popular “Real Housewives” franchise, several stars from the reality franchise turned up for cameos.
“The Real Housewives of the North Pole” featured cameos by franchise favorites Sonja Morgan (“Real Housewives of New York City”), Cynthia Bailey (Atlanta and RHUGT), Karen Huger (Potomac), and Lisa Barlow (Salt Lake City). In her sit down with Vulture, Kyle Richards revealed that Peacock producers approached her before scheduling the cameos and asked for her input.
“They had asked me, you know, ‘Who do you think we should ask?’ There was definitely a conversation. I had asked for Lisa Rinna to be there, but then at the last minute, she couldn’t. I was like, oh, it’ll be fun! Just because I was away from L.A. for so long making the movie, I was like, it would be nice to have Lisa Rinna come and visit, to at least have dinner or something. But she wasn’t able to.”
According to Kyle. the film is going to have a “housewives” flair even without Rinna. She explained that Housewives fans will get to see a tongue-in-cheek scene in which the Bravo stars are gossiping about her and Brandt’s characters. She also teased that funnily enough RHOSLC’s Lisa Barlow played a real estate agent in the movie.
