Rumours have been rife that Neighbours alum Holly Valance is set to join the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
And Olympia Valance, the younger sister of the 38-year-old actress, was not able to hose down the speculation when asked by Daily Mail Australia on Saturday.
‘I have no idea, and I haven’t even asked her about it,’ said the 28-year-old actress and model during Derby Day at Melbourne’s Flemington Racecourse.
Neither confirmed nor denied: Olympia Valance, the younger sister of Holly Valance, was not able to hose down the speculation that her half-sister was about to join the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills when asked by Daily Mail Australia on Saturday
However she conceded that there was plenty of interest in the answer, saying ‘I can’t tell you how many times I have been asked this.’
‘I’ve had everyone message me and I still haven’t asked her’
Olympia did acknowledge her half-sister, who is married to billionaire British property developer Nick Candy, would ‘be great’ on the reality TV franchise.
She also admitted it ‘would be fun’ to herself appear as a guest star on the program if Holly were to answer the call.

Olympia’s disclosure comes RHOBH newcomer Crystal Kung Minkoff shut down rumours Candy (née Valance) is joining the new season.
The Bravo star, 36, told the Unpopular podcast this week there was no truth to the speculation, but said Holly would have made a perfect addition to the cast.
‘She’s a big fan of the show,’ Crystal said of the Aussie, who married property developer Nick Candy in Beverly Hills in 2012 but now lives in London.

‘You never know [if she’d do it one day]. She’s an actress, right? She’s used to being in front of the cameras and stuff like that,’ she added.
‘So maybe she would [join RHOBH eventually]… but to be totally honest I haven’t heard any of that other than reading it.
‘But it would be fun because it would be nice to have someone my age, and someone who I really know, [who has] young kids. She’s funny.’

Housewives fans were sent into a frenzy last week after rumours circulated on social media that Holly could be joining the U.S. reality series.
The rumours started on popular Instagram account DeuxMoi, which posts unconfirmed gossip from anonymous sources to its 1.1 million followers.
A source claimed the former Neighbours star was set to join RHOBH for its upcoming twelfth season.
They alleged the Kiss Kiss hitmaker would be introduced on the show as a friend of current cast member Dorit Kemsley.

‘It’s definitely going to be interesting as she was a known singer/actor before marrying her BILLIONAIRE husband Nick Candy,’ the source added.
‘They’ve kept it under wraps as this is going to be her return to the spotlight.’
Holly is good friends with Crystal, the show’s newest cast member.
In fact, Crystal is one of just 578 people following Holly’s private Instagram account.
While the official cast for RHOBH season 12 is yet to be revealed, filming is expected to start in the next few weeks.

Melbourne-born Holly shot to fame as a teenager on the Australian soap Neighbours.
She left the series in 2002 to launch a music career, and topped the charts in Australia and the UK with her debut single, Kiss Kiss.
After her sophomore album tanked, she moved to Hollywood to pursue acting.
She landed memorable roles in shows like CSI and Prison Break, and starred alongside Liam Neeson in Taken.
Holly also worked with Paris Hilton on 2006’s Pledge This! and headlined the video game movie DOA: Dead or Alive.
In 2012, she married English billionaire Nick Candy in Beverly Hills, California, and has largely stayed out of the spotlight ever since.
The couple enjoy a lavish lifestyle and previously lived in a two-storey Hyde Park penthouse worth £175million (AUD$311million), making it Britain’s most expensive flat.
Nick and Holly have since downsized to a £10million (AUD$18.6million) countryside mansion in the Cotswolds, which they are currently renovating.
Last year, Nick gifted Holly with a £26million (AUD$53 million) superyacht, despite the mother of two famously suffering from sea sickness.
