Things are getting a little rocky with "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." According to Radar Online, executives at Bravo are planning to fire "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Kim Richards after this season because her storyline is "boring," and Carlton Gebbia because she isn't resonating with fans.

In regards to Kim Richards, "The network is not entirely happy with the ratings for the current season of "Beverly Hills" and sadly, despite being Paris Hilton's aunt, she has little going on in her life," a production source told Radar. "Viewers don't care about watching Kim's dog getting training. It's boring!" 

But if executives decide to fire Kim Richards, they could really upset her sister, Kyle Richards as a result and possibly lose her as a cast member. A source told Radar that the younger Richards sister has threatened to quit if they fire her sister partly because she doesn't want to have to financially support Kim again, as the show is Kim's main source of income. 

According to an insider, Gebbia 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."

The main problem seems to be that the ratings for the show are down overall. The franchise had dropped as much as 13.16 percent in total viewership season-to-season, via BravoRatings.com. But the ratings did increase a bit during the height of Brandi Glanville and Joyce Giraud's verbal sparring. 

The show may get an entire revamping, similar to what happened on "Real Housewives of New York".

"They could be looking for at least two new housewives for the next season," said the insider. "In any event, producers will be looking for ladies with over the top lifestyles, who bring the drama. The Brandi-Joyce feud is really the only storyline so far this season that the audience is engaging with."
