With the news that Ms. Xanax smoothie herself, Lisa Rinna, and newbie Diana Jenkins are departing The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after season 12, the Internet is abuzz with the possibilities of who might replace these housewives for the new season.
While fan theories have circulated about nearly every Beverly Hills socialite—from Kris Jenner to Meghan Markle—one theory seems to be sticking. Yup, fans think everyone may see actress Nicolette Sheridan joining the franchise this year. You could call it the Desperate Housewives to Real Housewives pipeline.
If you're curious to know more about this potential new star, you're not alone. Here's everything to know about Nicollette, from her net worth, to acting roles, and more.
Who is Nicollette Sheridan?
Nicolette Sheridan is an English-born actress and model. If she looks familiar, that's because you've probably seen her in a number of popular shows over the years. Speaking of which...

Nicolette got her start modeling, and landed a role on a soap called Paper Dolls in 1984 before moving on to star in The Sure Thing. Since then, she's starred in more movies like Noises Off, Spy Hard, Beverly Hills Ninja, and Code Name: The Cleaner.
Her most noteworthy role was playing Wisteria Lane villain, Edie Britt, in Desperate Housewives. Nicolette flawlessly played the role from 2004 to 2009 until the character’s untimely ended. IYKYK. Nicolette was even nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance.
She also appeared in The CW’s Dynasty reboot as Alexis Carrington.
She was married to Lisa Rinna’s husband.
Harry Hamlin, who is currently married to Lisa Rina, was actually married to Nicolette briefly, from 1991 to 1992.
Nicollette’s love life came up on season 9.
Naturally, the ladies of Beverly Hills dished on Nicolette on the show. Did anyone really expect Lisa Rinna NOT to mention her husband’s ex?
During season 9, Lisa shared the tea about Nicolette and Harry’s brief marriage. “Harry was married to her 30 years ago,” Rinna, told the ladies in the episode, per People. “The story is, she went to a Michael Bolton concert at the Hollywood Bowl—and left with Michael Bolton!”
Nicolette denied this, saying it was “Fake News.”
What is Nicollette's total net worth?
How old is Nicollette?
She's currently 59 years old.
People are sounding off in support on Twitter.
Everyone seems pretty hyped up about this possible casting choice. Example A:
They even shared their takes on *why* she'd be a good candidate. "Rinna needs a good enemy on the show that can get her to crack the way Kim Richards could. Andy really needs to get Nicollette Sheridan on the payroll," an account that tweets about the Housewives posted. "Get Nicollette Sheridan on the phone NOW," another account tweeted in response to news of Rinna's departure.
I guess everyone will just have to stay tuned on this one!
