I was listening to hit off the mess and agree with @bravohistorian—I just want to watch legacy! sure, give me a diverse, young summer house-vibe type of show in the city all day, but don’t call it RHONY. Just give that show a different title
There have been so many rumors about the fate of our beloved RHONY, and finally Andy Cohen gave us some answers. In an interview with Variety, he said that, "rebooting and recasting” the series, most likely from scratch, and launching a second “RHONY” series featuring former stars."
The RHONY will feature new cast members Andy said, “There are thousands of stories to tell here. This is the most multicultural, diverse, and energetic and exciting city in America: We are searching for a multicultural group of friends who really best reflect the most exciting city in the country. We’re looking for a group of women who are real friends, and who are of diverse backgrounds, races and religions.”
And to not throw away what we love, the second RHONY will feature ex cast members.
I've seen a few things swirling around saying Ramona and Luann are the ONLY two cast members returning for season 14...I know people were saying RHONY needed a shakeup, but I don't think they meant THIS kind of shake up....
Do we think Jenna Lyons on RHONY signals a truly new era?
The show has been blasted across franchises for its casting, onboarding people who quickly bring controversy for inappropriate comments or, worse, felonies. Is this Bravo’s attempt to get Housewives to turn over a new image leaf, by hiring someone who seems legit? Or will she be just as messy as everyone else? (Somehow doubtful…)
Okay, with the way this season is currently going, whose beef do you think is going to pop off into that huuuuuge fight everyone keeps alluding to? I think Teresa and Marge, but Dolores or Melissa might surprise us by being involved in some way.
It's been brought to my attention that Carole Radzi's ex-boyfriend, Adam, you may remember him famously has Luann's niece's ex-boyfriend, the sexy salad maker, and of course the guy who held Carole's hair back while she threw up in a pedicab while she was tripping. Well. That man is I guess dating, THE Elle MacPhearson, who also was with Kelly Bensimon's ex, Gille Bensimon.
I dont' know, I am just SHOCKED????!!!!
Deux posted she heard that Julia Fox was in the running for the new RHONY. This isn’t far-fetched considering Leah Mob is close with her and was even her sponsor. Obviously her performance art with Ye revitalized her career. But even before the fling, she was Josh Safdies muse in uncuh jamz. Would you love it or hate it?
I personally wouldn’t mind it because she was known around New York and is back on the scene. Im just hoping she’s not like Leah. She’s also pretty young only 32 and I like Housewives to see women in their second and third act.
My first thought when I saw this morning that RHONY "star" Luann DeLesseps was kicked out of gay piano bar Thursday night for causing a scene, basically, and being rude, I was like, who leaked this to Page Six?? Was Ramona Singer in attendance? I just LOVE that Page Six is THE place that RHONY cast goes to talk shit. It brings me joy.
OK so Luann was supposedly super drunk and stumbled through a wonky version of Money Can't Buy You Class, which is just so chef's kiss. She told Page Six that he wasn't "kicked out" which I kinda believe ... seems like a gay piano bar on a Thursday night in Manhattan would kinda be her scene.
Anyway, who do you think leaked this news to Page Six? Apparently the leaker also sent Page Six video of the performance, so keep that in mind:
1) The owner of the club: no better way to get people talking about Townhouse than to have a drunk Luann spotting
2) A patron who didn't get their turn to sing a song because Luann hogged the mic
3) Ramona and her iPhone 7
4) A friend of Leah McSweeney's was there, he told her, Leah leaked it
5) Luann did it herself -- no press is bad press!
MAJOR RHONY ANNOUNCEMENT! Not one, but two versions of RHONY will exist in our Bravosphere very soon.
Bravo is completely rebooting and recasting RHONY, and launching a new show with the Housewives of NY's past. Here is who I would LOVE to see together.
Luann de Lesseps
