Hype surrounding "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" season 8 cast is beginning to hit a fever pitch and gossip about what the cast will look like is attracting speculations. Bravo will add a new face to the 90210 housewives series in the upcoming season.

'RHOBH's' newest cast member

E! News reports that teddi jo mellencamp has signed on with "RHOBH." If her last name sounds familiar, it's because she's related to the singer you're thinking of -- John Cougar Mellencamp. According to the report, it's unclear if Teddi Jo will be a full-time housewife or if she'll come on as a friend.

Sources reveal to E! that Mellencamp is currently filming with the rest of the cast.

A photo recently posted by Camille Grammer on Twitter showed the rest of the ladies in Las Vegas. There was one unfamiliar face among the others and now we know who it is. The photo included Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Erika Girardi, Camille Grammer, Adrienne Maloof, and Teddi Jo.

Who is Teddi Jo Mellencamp?

E! writes that not much is known about the new "RHOBH" cast member other than her famous father, but her Instagram account reads that she's an "accountability coach and fit mom addicted to sweat and laughter" and a "writer of honest sarcastic reviews for anything health/fitness."

Mellencamp blogs about health and exercise at LAWorkoutJunkie.com and is married to Edwin Arroyave. She's a mother to two children and is a step-mother to one child.

Another cast member leaves show

One cast member absent from the group photo was Eileen Davidson, who tweeted on Friday that she won't be appearing on "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" season 8. She informed fans that her work on "The Young and the Restless" and "Days of Our Lives" is keeping her so busy she can't fit the show in right now. The actress went on to say that she'll still try to pop in and see what everyone is up to.

Who'll Teddi Jo buddy up with and which of the women on the show will be her nemesis? Every cast member has an arch enemy. Lisa Rinna may need a new friend now that Eileen is gone. The two women were very close and were able to withstand any challenges they faced on the show.

Are you excited to hear about the Teddi Jo Mellencamp joining the show? Will there be others joining as well? The official cast won't be revealed for a while, but the stars are dedicated to updating their social media accounts with new photos as filming progresses.

"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" season 8 will premiere later this year on Bravo.
