We’ve heard that Elly has been contacted to submit a tape on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” she seems to be thrilled about it, she told TMZ that her husband John’s agent was contacted by producers to see if she was interested in submitting an audition tape and she has! So the green eyed blonde is currently in talks to become part of the hit Bravo series.


Elly and her hubby are both Christians but oddly enough during her audition tape for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it has been revealed she and John, married for the past two decades are in fact separated. In her audition tape, Elly takes fans inside her Santa Monica condo, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean. John, who recorded the tape, makes an appearance, but apparently, they aren’t actually together at this time. As Elly notes in the video, she lives alone, but she and John appear to be on good terms.

Would you like to see her on the show? She might not live exactly in Beverly Hills but Santa Monica is close enough plus is not a requirement to live there to appear on the show.
