After speculation that “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” would add new cast members that ranged from Lisa Rinna to LeAnn Rhimes, the Bravo series has finally locked in its new faces for the next season of the show.

E! News reports that the show is bringing in Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud as the new housewives.

Joyce Giraud is a Puerto Rican actress and model who was twice named Miss Puerto Rico finished as the second runner up in the 1998 Miss Universe pageant and has appeared in series that include “Baywatch” and “House of Payne.”

Meanwhile, the British Gebbia had roles in films such as “Eyes of the Serpent” and on television series that inclkudd “The Yong and the Restless.” Her husband is David Gebbia, owner of StockCross Financial Services as well as a California construction company whose net worth tops $50 million.

The article states that already the duo are mixed in the drama, with Giraud “befriending Kyle and Kim Richards and making an enemy of Brandi Glanville and Lisa Vanderpump.”

“Joyce is definitely Team Kyle,” one source told the site. “But she gets on the nerves of nearly everyone else. She’s very β€˜me, me, me.’ She makes every situation about her. It’s insensitive and exhausting.”

Meanwhile, it looks like Vanderpump is looking to take Gebbia under her wing.

At the end of last season, it appeared that there was only one vacancy to fill with Adrienne Maloof departing, but it now looks like castmember Taylor Armstrong may not be returning to the series in a full-time role either.
