The New York Post is reporting that Bravo may be looking to replace the entire cast of The Real Housewives of New York City. That’s right, Cindy Barshop, Ramona Singer, Kelly Bensimon, Jill Zarin, LuAnn de Lesseps, and Sonja Morgan would have to find something to do with their time other than get in fights in the Hamptons. Actually they would still do that but we wouldn’t know anymore!
According to their sources Bravo is looking for more affluent ladies that move in celebrity circles like the ones featured on the Beverly Hills version of the popular franchise. Two renowned Big Apple P.R. mavens Alison Brod and Di Petroff have been approached time after time to be on reality TV. Brod proved she would be great for the RHoNYC when she explained why she isn’t interested:
“I have turned down every reality show offer — a pink office with 50 girls is a big draw for development people. That said, being on the finale of ‘The City’ and my name being called a c u * t on ‘Entourage’ was enough buzz.”
Reality Tea isn’t so sure that all of the women will get the axe but that Cindy Barshop and an uninterestingly sane Kelly Bensimon could very well be gone. The NYC ladies have all been working on developing businesses outside of their roles on the show and are their own brand of a modern age cottage industry in a way. The ratings this year have been slightly up despite Bethenny Frankel’s departure so a full change would be surprising.
So if some alterations are made who would you like to see stay or go? As for me and my unhealthy crush on Sonja Morgan I’m keeping my fingers crossed that she stays.
