Carlton Gebbia was added to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast at the beginning of season four, and now, less than one season later, rumor has it that she's on the verge of getting fired.
According to the latest report, Gebbia's addition to the cast has not received the reaction producers were hoping for. Instead, fans have found her "annoying and fake," leading Bravo to contemplate giving her the boot.
Carlton just "hasn't struck a chord with fans of the show this year. Producers are planning on firing her after this season.. they are planning on revamping the entire cast like they did with the New York franchise of the Bravo show," an insider told Radar Online on Jan. 16.
"With ratings down it's absolutely essential that the show get back to it's original theme. Over-the-top lifestyles, parties and an influx of celebrities would also be good," the source explained. "Carlton's witch storyline is just creepy and weird. Viewers have sounded off on social media against Carlton, with some saying they are just grossed out by her sex room and lingerie. It's just so forced."
What fans do want, according to Radar, is more of "Lisa Vanderpump, Yolanda Foster, Brandi and Joyce."
"Producers could ask those ladies for recommendations on potential housewives," the source added. "The cast is just fighting over ridiculous nonsense, and it doesn't make any sense. There is a lot of pressure to make sure the next cast members are a hit with the audience."
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Mondays at 8 p.m.
