'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.

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.

Court is beautiful inside and out. I have never watched the show but know she would bring a fresh breath of air and "real reality" to the show.

Can't wait to see Courtney on Real Housewives. She will inject intelligence, wit, and depth. Her personality will develop a new dynamic that will appeal to a broader audience. I think it will be the best season yet. Go Courtney!

The current housewives are the most shallow women ever. Courtney will be a refreshing addition. I may even watch the show if she is cast!

I'm a nurse from DC and have seen the real housewives show a time or 2, though I'm not a fan. My husband and I watched Overhaulin' for years (2 1/2). We like Courtney's personality. She was the 'spark' of that show and would definitely be so on this one! Keep smiling girl!

Those who bully and take vicious, cheap shots against others (especially those who they do not even know) are merely projecting their own lack of confidence and internal pain.... And they are cowards. It is extremely sad & unfortunate. I wish these people peace from their internal torment.... And I wish Courtney & her husband many congrats and continued success!
