Is 'Real Housewives of New York' Delayed Because It's Too Boring Without Bethenny?

RHONYCI have some bad news. We're all going to need a new reason to get up in the mornings. The Real Housewives of New York City premiere has been postponed. POSTPONED! Sorry, I'm still trying to let it sink in. I'm feeling lost, confused, and aimless. What are we going to do?

Bravo suggests we watch The Real Housewives of Miami instead. Wow. Really? How presumptuous of Andy Cohen to suggest that my crazy Kelly Bensimon fix can be cured by someone new in Miami! It can't, Cohen! It can't I say.

Rumor has it that this season of RHONY is so boring that the producers needed more time to edit it into something entertaining. Is it because Bethenny Frankel isn't on this season?

I agree that the show will suffer without Bethenny. Her quick-wit, snarky comments, and bright sweaters were certainly a highlight of the show. But hand Ramona a bottle of Pinot Grigio, feed Kelly some gummy bears, and get Jill all worked up about something and the drama will be taken care of. Trust me.

Cohen assures us that there's no foul play here, and that the RHONYC delay is a good thing.

We have an embarrassment of riches with Miami and New York and I assure you that the Real Housewives of NYC will be well worth the wait and the Real Housewives of Miami is hot, hot, hot.

Sigh. Fine. But I'm dead serious when I say that the Miami wives better deliver in a big way. And I refuse to give up on New York. Another rumor is circulating that Camille Grammer, the most hated Housewife from Beverly Hills, might be joining the NYC cast. Consider me intrigued. Bravo is denying the claim, but a girl can dream, can't she?

Are you upset that the RHONYC premiere was delayed until later this spring?
