After it was reported previously, soap veteran Lisa Rinna would be joining our favorite ladies who lunch on the upcoming season of the Bravo hit. Now news hits Rinna won’t be the only soap star in the mix.

Soap actress and 2014 Daytime Emmy winner Eileen Davidson will join the Beverly Hills cast for the fifth season, The Wrap reports.

The 55-year-old is a daytime staple, having long running roles on shows “The Young and the Restless”  and “The Bold and the Beautiful,” in addition to her Daytime Emmy-winning portrayal of Kristen DiMera on “Days of Our Lives.”

The thrice-married beauty makes a great addition to the cast, which in addition to Rinna includes Lisa Vanderpump, Brandi Glanville, Yolanda Foster and sisters Kim and Kyle Richards.

Viewers don’t need to worry about Davidson getting adjusted to the drama on “Housewives,” her “Days” character fled town earlier this year after drugging and raping her fiance — so catfights should be a cake walk.
