Hadid was touted as a replacement for Kelsey Grammer's ex-wife Camille, who recently departed the hit show to concentrate on raising her kids away from the spotlight of reality TV - and now the stunner, who wed hitmaker Foster last year (11), has revealed she has ""formerly joined"" the series.
She tells HollyScoop.com, ""We started filming about two weeks ago and we're in the full goings of it.""
Hadid already has firm links to the show - her ex-husband, Mohamed Hadid, is really good friends with Real Housewives favourite Lisa Vanderpump.
He threw a lavish engagement party for Lisa's daughter Pandora on the last season of the series.
But the new girl on the block insists her broken marriage hasn't created any drama on the show so far - and she is really enjoying her time as a Real Housewife: ""It's a great group of women and we're going to have fun.""
The third season of the show will premiere this autumn (12).
