Bravo sure moves fast: A week after ditching half of the Real Housewives of New York CityÂ cast, they’ve already got three replacements lined up. According to the New York Daily News, these are the women you can expect to see on season 5 of RHONY:
The Wall Street Wife:Â Bravo’s phrasing, not oursâ€”all we know about Aviva DrescherÂ is that she’s blonde, married to an investment firm founder, and has three kids. Considering that most of the recent cast members aren’t actual housewives, it’ll be interesting to see how much she’s defined only by her husband and taking care of her household.
The Single Girl:Â Author and former ABC News producerÂ Carole RadziwillÂ is a widow, her husband having died of cancer in 1999. But his aunt wasÂ Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, so she’s got some connections.
The Businesswoman:Â Similar to the ousted Cindy BarshopÂ and Jill Zarin, fashionÂ designer Heather ThomsonÂ has a successful business: Yummie Tummie, shapewear that got featured on one of Oprah‘s “Favorite Things” shows in 2008.
Simon Van KempenÂ and Alex McCordÂ should be worried.
