More crazy coming your way on the next season of the Real Housewives of New York City.
The NYDailyNews is reporting today that Bravo has asked back all of the ladies of last season with the exception of one. Who wasn’t asked back? Bethenny Frankel, who has been very vocal about not wanting to return to the show.
It seems Bravo is pleased and content with the success of Bethenny’s spin off show – Bethenny Getting Married, as she is currently filming a second season.
Now on to the shocker, which is the return of Kelly Bensimon, who famously had a mental breakdown last season, and has bashed the network for false editing and forcing her to go on the St. John trip. Even Bravo’s VP of programming, Andy Cohen, recently referred to Kelly’s breakdown as “deeply disturbing” in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar magazine. But oh well, who cares! Evidently, crazy sells!
So if all the ladies accept Bravo’s offer, the 4th season of the NYC Housewives will include a cast of Kelly, Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, and new housewife Sonja Morgan.
Both Jill and Kelly have mentioned uncertainty about returning for another season, but something tells us the two famewhores ladies will be back.
There’s no word on whether Jennifer Gilbert will be returning. The Daily News also mentions Bravo is interested in casting a certain nameless “wealthy Hamptons housewife.”
TELL US – ARE YOU SURPRISED BRAVO WANTS KELLY BACK? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE SHOW WITHOUT BETHENNY?
