Black Royalty In The House: Could There Be A Black Woman Coming To The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills?
Could this woman be the newest cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? According to E! News, she’s been approached about joining in on the “fun” and has met with producers and casting for Bravo.
Meet Baroness Monica von Neumann. She was married to Austrian royalty, Baron John von Neumann for 26 years after being introduced to each other by Sonny Bono in Palm Springs. According to Radar Online, he was the first importer of Volkswagens to the U.S., and a son of a prominent doctor. They had many great years together traveling around the world and living the fabulous life, but he passed away after a battle with cancer in 2003.
But aside from being known as his wife, the Baroness von Neumann has formed her own identity and brought in her own wealth as an entrepreneur. She’s Detroit’s finest, but has lived many years in Los Angeles, and is well known for her successful candle line, Baroness von Neumann Candles. We had the pleasure of interviewing her last year about her candle collection, her husband and her philanthropic work.
According to the source close to Bravo, “The producers loved that she has an existing company.” It’s that business savvy that makes producers think she would be a good fit for the show. She would definitely bring something different to the table seeing as she would be the first royal housewife in Beverly Hills and you know…since she’s black. If things don’t work out with the show, Von Neumann will definitely be good, not only because she’s handling business, but because she allegedly filmed a pilot for her own reality show for E! late last year, so she’s making big moves to get her face on the small screen in some way, shape or form. If she does get picked up for RHOBH, let’s hope she doesn’t end up being pushed to portray a stereotype, because she’s way too classy for all of that.
