We already know season 10 of 'RHOBH' will have some major cast shake-ups now that OG and fan favorite, Lisa Vanderpump has exited the series. Now, 'RHONY' may be experiencing some quivers for the upcoming twelfth season, as well. They have had minor cast changes over the past few years: in season 8, Jules Wainstein was brought in but replaced by Tinsley Mortimer the following year and she is still alive and well. After six seasons, Carole Radziwill exited the show in season 10 and was "replaced" with friend of the housewives, Barbara Kavovit, who is very close with Luann and knows the other New York ladies, as well. The BH women have not seen the same stability with the exception of the past two seasons, where the cast has been the same.
Back to NY and who will be coming back for season 12. The reunion has been filmed and a lot of drama is still going on as the current season wraps up. Here is who's rumored to be sticking around and safe, according to RadarOnline: OG Bethenny Frankel, Sonja Morgan, Tinsley, and Dorinda Medley. As for Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps, they may not be so lucky. It is rumored Singer's story line is tired. As you can see, she keeps bringing on ex-husband, Mario to make appearances so clearly she has nothing left to give. As for Luann, it's swirling she is hard to work with since she is a grand cabaret star, something we are seeing on the show and is demanding an excessive amount of money, more than Bethenny. Both B and Tinsley have high profile friends they are looking into so these changes could be revealed very soon as the show tends to start filming at the end of summer/Labor Day weekend.
What do you think? Would you miss Ramona or Lu? Remember, Lu was a friend of the housewives for season five. I would miss mocking the two of them, to be honest but I could do without Lu. There are so many fabulous people in New York, they can definitely do better than what they have. Only time will tell but for now, you can watch 'RHONY' on Bravo on Wednesday nights at 9pm.
