BUZZ: Bravo looking for ‘new’ cast members for ‘Vanderpump Rules:’ report

Bravo execs are reportedly seeking to add new cast members to “Vanderpump Rules.”

“They have started having outbound conversations,” an insider alleged to Entertainment Tonight on Friday.

The source also claimed that the series’ stars Lala Kent and Katie Maloney “are looking in their external friend groups to see who might be a good fit for the show.”

Cameras have already started rolling for Season 11, but Bravo reportedly still wants a fresh face.

A rep for the reality show did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.

The new season will follow the aftermath of a highly publicized cheating scandal between co-stars Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss.

The TomTom owner cheated on his longtime girlfriend, Ariana Madix, during his dalliance with the beauty queen.

The Something About Her sandwich shop owner, 38, discovered Sandoval was being unfaithful after she found an intimate video of Leviss, her former friend, on his phone.

Most of Season 10’s cast — including Madix— has already signed on for the upcoming episodes, but Leviss’ future on the show is still unclear.

Sources recently told TMZ that there have been a handful of  “complications” during their talks, which may be causing a delay in her return.

The insiders also added that salary negotiations were on the table.

Leviss previously admitted on a Season 10 reunion episode that her future on the show was “unclear” due to the extreme backlash she faced after her affair with Sandoval, 40.

Raquel Leviss
Leviss’ future on the show is still unclear.

Shortly after filming ended, the former Miss California contestant checked herself into a long-term mental health facility.

Despite Leviss being physically separated from the surmounting criticism in person and on social media, her immediate family began to receive hate from angry viewers.

In May, the reality star’s rep told Page Six that the vitriol had gotten so out of control that her family requested protection from the FBI due to death threats.
