Anthony Scaramucci

Leah McSweeney officially announced as RHONY cast member at BravoCon

The Real Housewives of New York remain arguably the strongest franchise outof all the Real Housewives (unarguably if you ask me) but with the recent exit of Queen B Bethenny Frankel, fans wondered what was up next for the women of the Big Apple.

Speculation remained strong in the Bravo Universe, fueling even more talk about who would be the next Housewife to join the cast. Everyone from Anthony Scaramucci’s wife to none other than Wendy Williams were tossed around.

Luann de Lesseps Weighs In On Real Housewives Of New York Casting Rumors

It is always tough when a new housewife joins a cast.  Most of these people are not actually friends offscreen. They are casual acquaintances at best.  So when a new lady gets thrown into the mix, you never know if there will be chemistry or not.  And last season, there was decidedly not chemistry with Barbara Kavovit and the rest of the Real Housewives of New York.  I know what you’re thinking… “Barbara who?”  Right there with, ya’, friends.  Literally the only thing I remember about Babs is the obscene amount of body glitter she wore during the reunion.

Barbara’s bad chemistry is our good fortune, because now we get to spend the off-season speculating about whether we will get a replacement New York Housewife for next season.   Allegedly, Ramona Singer wants her good friend Missy Pool to join the cast.  Missy is the ex-girlfriend of Tom D’Agostino, the man to whom Luann de Lesseps was married for 2.2 seconds.  If that is true, either Ramona is a terrible person or she really, really hates LuAnn.  Or both.

Luann de Lesseps And Barbara Kavovit Dish On Real Housewives Of New York Casting Rumors

The Real Housewives of New York has one of the more stable Housewife casts. These ladies just don’t give up their apples very often. Or have them taken away. Ramona Singer is at 11 seasons, Sonja Morgan at 9, Bethenny Frankel at 8, Dorinda Medley at 5 and Tinsley Mortimer at 3. Luann de Lesseps is also at 11 seasons– but was demoted to Friend Of status for Season 6. And I would still love to know the real story behind that slap in the face!

Every year, there are rumors about who might be staying, who might be going and who might be added to the cast.  This year, the big talk has been that Deidre Scaramucci, wife of former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci is going to be a new Housewife. And a few of the current RHONY ladies recently spoke out on the casting chatter.

Anthony Scaramucci’s Wife Deidre Scaramucci Wants To Join Real Housewives Of New York

Unlike some of the other Real Housewives shows with constantly changing casts, Real Housewives of New York usually retains its stars. Or at least it does longer than most reality TV shows.

Nevertheless, the right addition could really be a good thing for the show. For instance, Sonja Morgan and Dorinda Medley joined the show later on and completely changed the landscape when they did. Even though RHONY Season 11 is still airing, there is already gossip about the cast for next year. No, they aren’t bringing back any alums. Sorry, Jill Zarin. However, there is a familiar (last) name in the mix: Scaramucci. Former Trump staffer and Celebrity Big Brother cast member Anthony Scaramucci’s wife Deidre Scaramucci is interested in joining the show.

Celebrity Big Brother Finale Recap: And The Winner Is…

It’s been a tumultuous month in the Big Brother house. On Wednesday night it all came to an end. The winner of Celebrity Big Brother Season 2 was crowned, following the final two HOH competitions of the season. The finale felt tight, compact, and a bit rushed. Just like the season as a whole. Still, it wasn’t without drama and a few final twists. So which celebrity took home the $250,000 grand prize, and who was sent home bitter?

Celebrity Big Brother Episode 5 and 6 Recap: Another One Bites The Dust

These episodes of Celebrity Big Brother are coming so quickly and often, it’s hard to keep track! The season itself could be described as “fast and furious.” But, a new power-alliance of four that was formed last night, it might just be “slow and steady wins the race.”

Celebrity Big Brother Week 1 Recap: You’ve Just Been ‘Mooched’

So how much is too much Celebrity Big Brother? CBS asked that question this past week with FOUR new episodes to kick-off its 2nd season! The celebrity edition is definitely more of a sprint than the marathon in comparison to the “normal” Big Brother show. Still, through its first week, Celebrity Big Brother has absolutely lived up to the show’s motto: “Expect the unexpected.” Let’s dive into the highlights and my reaction to the show now that we’ve witnessed the first elimination episode of Season 2!

Celebrity Big Brother Premiere Recap: Expect The Unexpected!

As Joey Lawrence would say, “Woah!” The second-ever American version of Celebrity Big Brother kicked off last night with the first half of a two-night premiere. The second half airs tonight. It served mainly as an introductory episode: To the house, to the game and to the 12 “celebrities” that will compete for the $250,000 grand prize. I am ecstatic to be bringing you “recaps” of Celebrity Big Brother this season and I for one feel like we’re off to a very interesting start!

So why were the words “celebrities” and “recaps” put in quotes, you might ask? Well, that’s because it would be hard not to notice that the 12 contestants this season are not exactly…how shall I say…household names. How do you know you’re not a celebrity? Well for one, you find yourself competing on Celebrity Big Brother, for a cash grand prize and not for your favorite charity. In the same vein – and much like my Survivor column for this very same outlet – what I plan to bring you this season isn’t exactly a blow-by-blow “recap” of the show, but rather my thoughts, analysis, and reaction to the episode (or episodes) that we just witnessed. In other words, I’ll assume that you’ve seen the episode(s) each time, so please, please, PLEASE, if you do not want to have the show spoiled, don’t read any further until you’ve seen the episode(s)!
