For diehard fans of the show, a big casting change isn't that much of a surprise. The show has been suffering in the ratings all season. For some reason, The Real Housewives of New York don't have the same magical (and manic) mix as their Atlanta cohorts. Still, no one expected this type of blood bath. According to Radar Online, all but one of the RHONY got the axe. You'll never guess who survived!
So who's out? Say goodbye to Sonja Morgan, Heather Thomas, LuAnn de Lesseps, and Carole Radzwill. The only full-time castmember remaining will be -- RAMONA SINGER. That's right. The pinot-swilling, catty, self-absorbed businesswoman is the lone survivor.
Aviva Drescher, however, won't be totally out of the picture. Apparently, she will have a scaled-down guest role. But network execs are already reportedly interviewing new prospective Housewives in the Big Apple. We can only imagine what they will be like. Word is, the women on this current season just weren't dramatic enough. They may have flung champagne glasses, bitched and complained, and even slept around -- but that wasn't good enough. Bravo wants some wild, over-the-top drama next season and are cherry-picking the woman who will bring it.
I have to say, I will miss some of the characters. Sonja always brought the crazy and Heather was never one to back down from a fight. Well, can't wait to see what the new crew is like and how Ramona will fit in.
Who will you miss the most?
