Is it a new cast for The Real Housewives of New York City? Alex McCord and Cindy Barshop are rumored to be leaving the popular series. This is Cindy’s first season on the show; she was brought on to replace Bethenny Frankel. Keep reading to find out who is staying and who is moving on from the popular Bravo show.
Hollywood Life reports that Alex McCord and Cindy Barshop will not return for the next season of The Real Housewives of New York City. Alex has been with the series since its start, so why is she leaving? We can only guess why Alex would want to leave the popular show that has made her a reality star. Are the women fed up with Simon? Is she too busy with her modeling career? Whatever the reason, I do think the outspoken, Brooklyn mom, “character” Alex brings to the show will be missed.
As far as Cindy goes, I don’t think she will be missed by many viewers. Cindy had too big of shoes to fill by replacing Bethenny Frankel. Cindy is a very successful business woman too, but viewers just don’t seem to be that interested in her storylines. Cindy also got along too well with Jill Zarin, so what’s the fun in that?
All the other ladies; Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, Jill Zarin, LuAnn de Lesseps and Kelly Bensimon are all expected to return for another season. A Bravo rep has released the following statement, “No decisions have been made regarding next season and everything at this point is a rumor.”
As long as Ramona Singer and her pinot grigio stay, I’ll be watching!
