The Real Housewives of New York City is not going to have the same “face” you fans are used to. Bravo has officially chopped off four of the ladies: is officially down four familiar faces: Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Kelly Bensimon and Cindy Barshop. Season 5 is definitely going to be “different” without these ladies on board.
Bravo TV told People,
“Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan and LuAnn DeLesseps will be returning for season 5 of The Real Housewives of New York City. We’ve had a fabulous run with all the ladies and appreciate them sharing their lives with our viewers. It is a friendly departure among the other ladies and we continue to have on-going discussions with them.”
McCord talked to People about the departure saying,
“Of course Simon and I are sad not to continue with RHONY but it’s a friendly decision and discussions with Bravo are ongoing for other projects.”
And Zarin’s rep said,
“Jill is humbled by the extraordinary amount of media interest in her response and looks forward to personally opening up about all of this very soon and announcing some exciting new projects.”
So yeah, they are off this show, but you know they will be popping up elsewhere. This isn’t the end for them. Stay tuned.
