I don’t want to say that I’m entirely responsible for the recent Real Housewives Of New York City casting announcements coming from Bravo, but I’m just going to put it out there – maybe Andy Cohen reads my blog. Okay, probably not, but I’m happy to say that several items on my RHONY season 7 wishlist have already been granted.
Us Weekly reported today that Aviva Drescher, the worst human being to ever throw a prosthetic leg in a New York City restaurant, has been fired from the Real Housewives Of New York City. No reason was given for the sacking, but it could be because of the following:
- Her father, George Teichner, being someone we were forced to know
- #BookGate, AKA trying to get her own book sales to go up by spreading lies about an actual, award-winning writer
- That bright yellow wallpaper in her new house
- She threw her own leg as a publicity stunt
It’s pretty telling, I think, that she pulled the most talked-about stunt in the history of the Real Housewives franchise and still got canned. Telling and so, so satisfying.
What’s even more satisfying, though? RAMONA SINGER HAS BEEN DEMOTED.
That’s right, folks. A big thanks to everyone who’s been lighting their abundance candles every night, because we all finally got our wish. Ramona Singer, veteran of the show, has finally been demoted to “recurring friend.” According to a source on Us Weekly:
“Bravo is casting the show around Heather Thomson and Kristen Taekman and Carole Radziwill…[When] Ramona carried the show, that is why ratings plummeted, they think.”
It’s also possible that her giant $600,000 salary was a factor. I wish I could get six figures for throwing wine glasses and wearing a roller in my bangs, just saying.
I’d read something a couple weeks ago (a rumor, I think) that Ramona was being given an ultimatum by the show: agree to allow your divorce to be an A-plot, or you’re out. Now, I don’t know if this is true, but I wouldn’t be surprised. After stonewalling Andy Cohen at the season six reunion, I’m surprised she’s even recurring.
Now my only question is: what will become of Sonja Morgan?
