Bravo already has replacements after the bloothbath Real Housewives of New York City firings that shuttered through the reality tv world last week.
Good bye Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Kelly Bensimon, and Cindy Barshop and hello Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson, and Aviva Drescher! (according to Gossip Cop)
In Real Housewives land we’re not used to adding three women to a cast at once! So many names and faces to memorize! But these gals aren’t playing! They already have their own shape-wear lines and books.
Heather Thomson owns shapewear and fashion line Yummie! Here’s a video of Heather selling her shapewear camisole Yummie Tummie on HSN:
Heather’s been working in fashion and as a stylist for 15 years, and most notably, helped P-Diddy, Beyonce, and J-Lo design their lines. Pretty major. She’s married, and has two children: Ella, and Jax, who has bilary atresia (according to Absurd2Sublime.)
Carole DiFalco Radziwell is a real deal reporter and author (not an aspiring one, like we’ve seen before on these shows.) Her resume glitters like Beyonce’s maternity outfits!
Starting in 1986, Carole worked up way up the media ladder starting out as an unpaid intern at ABC. By 1991, Carole was in Israel reporting on the SCUD missile attacks of the Gulf War!
August 27, 1994 Carole married an ABC News producer (and royalty!) Prince Anthony Radziwill. He died in 1999 at age 40 after fighting cancer for 5 years. Around that time Radziwill also lost close friends Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy and John F. Kennedy.
In 2007, Radziwill became a published author with What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship, and Love.
Aviva Drescher has three children with Wall Street tycoon Reid Drescher. They’re reportedly work $80 million, and Reid is President and CEO of the hedge fund Cape One Financial Advisors, and also President and CEO of boutique investment bank Spencer Clark LLC.
Sounds like an exciting crew with very interesting lives! We’ll be following up with more detailed bios on these fantastic ladies!
Carole, Heather, and Aviva join RHNY verterans Sonja Morgan, Luann de Lesseps, and Ramona Singer.
