Bravo to Dump The Real Housewives of New York City?

by at . Comments

The Real Housewives of New York City as we know them may soon be no more.

According to network insiders, Bravo thinks the current cast is too poor - no, seriously, too poor - and wants to "replicate" the mega-wealthy cast of its Beverly Hills franchise.

All The Real Housewives of New York City

"They want an entirely new cast," a source tells The New York Post. "They want rich, rich women, like Adrienne Maloof and Camille Grammer, dripping in glamour and $10 million penthouses. And they don't want to fake it. They are discreetly reaching out to women who fit the bill."

The Real Housewives of New York City premiered its new season on April 7 and has been garnering decent ratings. But the first season finale of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was the highest rated finale of any in the franchise's history.

In response to this rumor, a Bravo rep simply said: "We are always casting for new housewives in every city."

One thing I find intriguing in how etoosipps attract is how the deep Self wishes to complete itself, or be more fully expressed; thus the opposite that we attract can be considered as the unconscious aspect of ourselves that can help round out our more complete and individuated Self.This is particularly important if we seem to find the troubled person like a needle in a haystack, and in a repeating pattern. I have often seen this with seemingly macho guys who fall for wounded bird-like waifs as the secret vulnerable feminine that they must deny tooth and nail (much as the demure woman might experience her inner brute in the brute she is attracted to and attracts).Finally, etoosipps are more about what is expressed on the surface, while when we get to the soul level the sublime and sacred pulses in each and every one. Our good fortune is to be able to see it.

I love watching LuAnn for she is a bitch but a smart one and she does her "sarcasm" in such a darling way for she does have class. Being a Countess just makes me love her more. She does not talk behind people's back-she is never the one to start the drama and she is a good friend but she will tell you when she thinks you are wrong. Alexis was profoundly low trailer trash when she said Countess with out the o. Shame on her. Definitely an example of "Money Can't Buy You Class"! You deserve a fantastic love life--good luck to you.

Bravo is easily the worst cable network of all time, I have never seen such poor quality "programming " on any network that actually tries to pretend there's entertainment value. Bravo once had brilliant subscription quality programming, what the hell happened?!?

I am so disappointed with the Housewives of New York. Jill shut up. She is such a phony. She wouldn't know how to be a true friend and the Countess should give up the name and write a book on how to be so rude...I am not watching them if they are a new season.Please also bring back Camille Grammar....
