It’s been widely reported that former “” actress (ex-Billie Reed) is set to join the season five cast of Bravo’s “,” which follows several wealthy ladies in the world’s most famous zip code as they party it up during wild nights, deal with family dynamics and duke it out for supremacy within their click, but will a former “DAYS” co-star be joining her?

According to The Wrap, citing a source familiar with the situation, (Kristen DiMera; Ashley Abbott, “”), who won her first Daytime Emmy Award last month for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, is set to join Rinna on the Bravo reality program as a series regular.

While Bravo has yet to confirm either Rinna or Davidson’s casting, one has to wonder how Davidson potentially plans to juggle her grand return to “Y&R” (set to air in September) and a reality series.

    Please say it ain’t so…. I mean, yes, I’m guilty of not being able to not watch the show if it’s on – like one rubbernecks as one passes a car wreck on the highway – but does anyone take these ladies seriously? I think it’s a slippery slope, as an actor, when you decide to do “reality” television.

    I would support both Davidson and Rinna in their stints on “Real Housewives”. It’s a franchise I’m newly getting into, and find it highly addictive.

  • Eileen seems like such a classy woman why would she join such a trashy TV series?
