Is Bravo’s reality TV show Real Housewives of New York going to be cancelled? It’s no secret that over the last few season of RHONY, the show has had less than stellar ratings. Producers thought that bringing back alum Bethenny Frankel could save the franchise, but the jury is still out on whether she actually helped ratings, or just made them worse. Now, rumor has it that Bravo is considering cancelling Real Housewives of New York all together – or giving the cast a complete overhaul.
According to a new report from New York Daily News, basically all eight RHONY housewives are on the chopping block after Season 8. A source dished to the Daily News, “The ladies have been told that the reunion taping will be their chance to prove to Andy Cohen and the rest of the producers that they should be invited back. They have all been told to bring the crazy. If anyone holds back or tries to be neutral and mend fences, they will be gone. No one is safe with the ratings being so low.”
Since Season 8 of Real Housewives of New York debuted, cast rumors have been flying that basically every housewife is about to be fired. And, it looks like there was definitely some truth to those rumors. Especially the ones about Kristen Taekman and Carole Radziwill. Real Hosuewives of New York has by far the largest cast of any of the Real Housewives shows, and still seems to have the lowest ratings. That’s a sure fire sign that it’s not the lack of drama or women that is causing sinking ratings, but the actual cast members themselves.
Do you think that Bravo will just give up and cancel RHONY? Or will they make one last-ditch attempt to revamp the entire Real Housewives Of New York cast…again? Who should be fired? Is Bethenny Frankel really helping the ratings, or hurting them? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
