Season 12 of Real Housewives of New York is going to look very different. Bethenny Frankel, one of the franchise’s “OGs,” shocked everyone by bowing out of the upcoming season. Luann de Lesseps hasn’t exactly been singing sad songs since Bethenny’s announcement.
Now that Bethenny is gone, Luann can cabaret all day (and night) without being called out for her entitled behavior. Luann even alleged that her fellow New York Housewives were glad that Bethenny had quit RHONY again.
But Luann’s long-time friend of 14 years, Barbara Kavovit, ended her friendship with Luann. According to US Weekly, Barbara called Luann a “narcissist.” It seems like Luann was offended by Barbara’s comments about Luann’s vocal stylings.
So, what has Luann been up to? Besides lining up more cabaret performances, Luann is also planning to write a book about her life experiences. Is the upcoming season of RHONY becoming another edition of “Countess and Friends?”
And will the franchise soon be losing another New York Housewife? In October, RadarOnline reported that Tinsley Mortimer had reconciled
for the millionth time with off-an-on boyfriend Scott Kluth. Tinsley is desperate to marry Scott, take her eggs out of the deep freeze, and become a mom. I am not sure that he feels the same way. Scott is based in Chicago, and Tinsley loves the Big Apple.
The Blast reported that Tinsley missed some filming because she was in Chicago with Scott, and that she had allegedly quit the show. But according to RadarOnline, Tinsley has her man, and her reality show, too. A source said, “She is still filming. Any rumors of her quitting is everyone just speculating and the cast gossiping.”

In an interview with toofab, Luann dished about Tinsley possibly hanging up her Housewives title after this season. “You never know with Tinsley,” Luann said. “She’s back to dating Scott, and I hope and pray it works out this time around.” As does Tinsley. “And, you know, the door is always open if she needs to come back,” Luann added. How gracious of Luann to allow Tinsley to return to
Luann’s Show RHONY in the future.
Of course, Tinsley had to put up with some nosy co-stars last season. After Tinsley’s beloved dog, Bambi, passed away, Scott sent Tinsley some “Bambi” sneakers. Dorinda Medley and Sonja Morgan were not happy about the gift since Scott and Tinsley were broken up at the time. Sonja and Dorinda even questioned if Scott was financing Tinsley lavish lifestyle. Tinsley was outraged by the accusations, since she is funding her own life. Well, trust funding it, anyway.
I could see Tinsley leaving Housewives in the rear-view if her relationship with Scott
doesn’t implode again gets serious.
TELL US- DO YOU THINK THAT LUANN WILL TAKE OVER THE UPCOMING SEASON? DO YOU WANT TINSLEY TO STAY ON THE SHOW? WILL SHE MOVE TO CHICAGO WITH SCOTT?
