'Bev Hills Housewives' -- Gunning for Auto Queen

2/8/2011 1:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Another super-rich woman has met with "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" producers about joining the cast for Season 2 -- and this one already has a TV show on the air ... TMZ has learned.

0208_courtney_hansen_EX_01

Sources close to production tell TMZ ... Courtney Hansen -- the host of "Powerblock" on Spike TV -- is in talks to join the Bravo reality show.  Hansen is the daughter of a racecar driver and she's known in the racing world for being an expert in all things automotive.

Hansen is married to pharmaceutical tycoon Ilya Sapritsky ... but more importantly, she was voted one of FHM's 100 sexiest women in 2005.

As we previously reported, Kim Richards and Camille Grammer may not return to "Bev. Hills" next season ... and producers are on the hunt for the right women to fill their stilettos.

Bravo declined to comment on the situation.

Really???? Her??? Have you ever watched her on TV? To say she is a host is stretching a little, she always looks awkward and uncomfortable to have the camera in her face. It will be a waste of film IMO.

Uuuummmmm, honey, I laugh at you when my husband watches that show. You sound like such a moron talking about cars, like you know, and then dressed like 'you were bought and paid for' to boot. It is comparable to the other shows like this one with bimbos telling the men how work on their cars. Hilarious.


Please, now you think you need futher attention by attempting to be on this stupid reality show? GROWN adult normal women would rather puke their guts all day than even watch that show, let alone be on it!

Re-think that one. If it is a spokesperson job you want, then go for that on a show that isn't about cars and engines, so you actually look like you know what you are talking about. Now, you look and sound foolish.

Canadasux - FHM ceased publication in the states in 2006. She was hot in 2005 and she's still hot now!

BTW - I don't even like cars but she makes watching it fun for me, ever since Overhaulin on TLC 9 years ago. Courtney would be awesome on the show, she can be the 'young (yes - young), fun chick who actually has a personality since they're severely lacking in that category!

I am a huge car buff and she is the GURU of this space!! Not only that but I have posters of her all over my garage so when I have those moments of feeling on the ledge, I look at Courtney's picture with some Josh Groban's YOU RAISE ME UP in the background and then....hammer time!

ps her book is awesome! My wife swears by it and don't forget she hosted Overhaulin'

uncomfortable in front of the camera...??? this is clearly a shot by the paparazzi. google her people... i've met her at a few car shows and she is down to earth and extremely knowledgeable about cars. i've watched her on overhaulin', destination wild and powerblock. she is by far comfortable. she wrote a book for goodness sake. give the girl a break.

i'd love to see courtney on the show. she would bring a different light to the show.
