First up, Page Six dishes that fashion-personality Jené Luciani could be headed to the cast next year! A source reveals that the underwear guru and author of "The Bra Book" completed a screen test for the series and has had cameras following her for two days. Too bad bra maven Jene wasn't around when Alex McCord was a member of the cast!
“They went to a meeting for her lingerie-inspired handbag line, a pole-dancing fitness class, and met her 3-year-old daughter at her country home,” the source reveals. “They also took a tour of her vintage clothing collection.”

Although nothing is confirmed, but producers are interested in Jene whose husband Bill works in fiance like Aviva Drescher's. Jene is currently being followed on twitter by a couple Real Housewives – including Aviva, Heather Thomson, and Melissa Gorga. Photos of Jene are below!
Another contender to join the cast is reportedly a friend of one of the current cast members.
Wetpaint also reveals that producers are on the hunt and another woman is being closely considered. “There’s at least one more person they’re currently looking at,” a production insider shares. “She may turn out to be a better fit for the show than [Luciani].”
No one is revealing the names of the mysterious second candidate as "this is all in the very early stages.” As for why producers are considering her over Jene – it's an age-old NYC trope: location, location, location!
“Jene fits the bill in terms of money and class, but she’s primarily based in Westchester, not in New York City. That’s where she spends most of her time," the insider explains. "The other woman they’re interested in lives in Manhattan, which just works better for the show. They’re really looking for city girls, not suburban moms.”
No word yet on who may get cut from the current cast (if any), although LuAnn de Lesseps has been rumored to be on the hotseat. The insider reveals that all the ladies are staying put – unless Bravo gives them their walking papers. “I don’t think any of the current cast members are looking to leave right now. If they don’t return for Season 6, it won’t be their choice.”
