The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is introducing a new cast member, Kathryn Edwards. In 1993, the former model married NFL star Marcus Allen (Los Angeles Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs). After eight years of marriage, they divorced and Kathryn married another former NFL player Donnie Edwards (San Diego Chargers, Kansas City Chiefs). Kathryn is referred to by some as a cougar — Donnie is 9 years younger than she is.
[Faye Resnick wrote the book Nicole Brown Simpson: the Private Diary of a Life Interrupted]
Kathryn Edwards knows many of the Real Housewives already including Lisa Rinna who immediately brings up Kathryn’s history with O.J. Simpson. Her first husband was good friends with Simpson. And then there’s Kyle Richards whose best friend Faye Resnick (who was friends with Simpson’s late wife Nicole Brown) wrote a tell-all book and claimed Allen had an affair with Brown while married to Kathryn. At the time, Allen’s attorney denied that the affair occured. The OJ Simpson trial happened 20 years ago but that doesn’t mean all is forgotten — as the housewives will prove. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Tuesdays at 9pm on Bravo.
