Contrary to Caitlyn Jenner's and Sophia Hutchins' desires, Andy Cohen reports the duo will not be joining the cast of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," Page Six reports.

EDGE previously reported that the duo were rumored to join the show. But on Thursday, Cohen first suggested on his Sirius XM radio show that he's vaguely familiar with Hutchins, asking co-host John Hill, "I know that she's Caitlyn's girlfriend, right?" Hill responded, "well, roommate and manager." Cohen said that rumors of the duo joining the show are a case of "the call is coming from inside the house" — or, more specifically: that the rumors were started by Jenner and Hutchins in an attempt to get Cohen's attention.

A source close to Jenner and Hutchins told Page Six last month that the duo "mutually decided to try the new reality show together, and Caitlyn is pushing for Hutchins to be cast." A rep said that after Hutchins expressed interest, and received Jenner's support, Hutchins left the potential opportunity in the hands of her agent to make it happen and "that was the extent of their knowledge of talks."

Cohen acknowledged that the duo have publicly expressed interest and have tagged him is social media posts. But when asked if he would consider Jenner for the show, "even in a 'friend of the Housewives' role," Cohen replied "no, I just don't see it."
