For the most part, the Real Housewives of New York cast is full of dynamic characters. No matter what you think about Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, and Dorinda Medley, you have to admit that they really bring it as cast members. Excluding some people from that list is my subtle way of saying who the boring ones are. Why are they on the cast when there are so many viable candidates in New York City?
Even Bethenny herself wants a more diverse cast. The part about some people being boring was just my own personal commentary, but my point is that there are is definitely some dead weight on this show and that in combination with Bethenny’s wish for diversity can go hand in hand. Andy Cohen, are you listening? Drop those other two and spice up the show.
In an interview with Parade, Bethenny shared her ideas for improving Real Housewives of New York. She thinks that it would be a great idea to switch up the cast and revealed, “I would like to see some younger cast members. I’d like to see an African American woman on the show. I suggested someone who didn’t work out.”
She continued, “There are really no Jewish women in the cast. There are also no Asian, Latino or gay women on the show. I’d like it to represent New York more.” Makes sense to me. I have to assume that there are dynamic women in this social circle who can add more diversity to round out this cast and make the show more relatable to the viewers.
