The Real Housewives of New York may have just wrapped a killer 11th season, but that doesn’t mean the show’s six leading ladies are safe from a change-up come season 12. This is especially true with the young, now single, Tinsley Mortimer hanging around.
With RHONY likely going into pre-production very soon, everyone’s abuzz as to who will return as a full-time cast member — especially after learning about the demotion of The Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Vicki Gunvalson. Even the cast members of the New York-based reality show don’t know for sure, and allegedly, some of them are genuinely worried about their jobs.
According to an article on Hollywoodlife, some of the women of RHONY are scared of their impending expiration dates next to Tinsley, the show’s youngest and newest cast member.
Upon hearing news of a “shake-up”, a source close to the show’s production team says, “Some of the older ladies like Ramona [Singer] and Sonja [Morgan] feel a bit threatened by Tinsley who they know is younger and hot and recently single again. They know that’s the audience they want to attract, so they feel a bit nervous. The entire full-time cast would like to come back and they’d like to see each other come back deep down, they feel they’re great, but they are anticipating some firings and hirings.”
But not all the ladies of Bravo TV‘s smash-hit reality series are worried about keeping a spot on the show. One of RHONY’s original and most popular cast members, LuAnn De Lesseps, isn’t sweating things just yet. “The countess isn’t going anywhere anytime soon,” the cabaret star Tweeted in response to a fan asking if she was leaving the show.
But with endlessly entertaining reality stars like Bethenny Frankel, Dorinda Medley, and Sonja Morgan in the mix, it’s doubtful that RHONY producers will ever be in need of more drama — unless fans want to see even more of Tinsley crying over her frozen eggs, Scott, or The Big Apple Circus. Seriously, can someone get that girl a tissue?
The Real Housewives of New York City season 11 reunion part three airs Thursday, July 25 at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
