With Real Housewives of New York City currently on hiatus, it’s the perfect time for rumors to be spread regarding who stays and who is leaving! Latest rumor is that veteran Luann de Lesseps and newbie Heather Thomson have been replaced by two new ladies! How true is this, though?
Star Magazine reported that Heather and Luann are being switched out for two new ladies! A source tells the magazine, “In a last-ditch bid for ratings, Bravo and the show’s producers are making yet another cast change, swapping Heather Thomson and LuAnn de Lesseps for real estate mogul Rachel Glazer and stylist Mary Alice Stephenson. Heather and LuAnn weren’t adding anything to the show.”
Allegedly, Heather was too boring for producers, and Luann did not allow various parts of her personal life to be filmed. The source continues, “LuAnn has an incredibly interesting life — off camera. She slept with a bartender on the St. Barts trip, she went through a divorce and her daughter kept finding herself in trouble, but LuAnn wouldn’t allow any of that to be on the show. She assumed that because she was a veteran member of the cast, she was untouchable — but the truth is, anyone can be fired if they don’t add to the drama of the show!”
Gossip Cop reached out to a Bravo source who said the report was FALSE. While Luann was clearly on her way out, I really enjoyed Heather! I think she did add something to the group – a level headed voice of reason who is not afraid to tell these women when they’re acting stupid.
Would you miss Luann or Heather on RHONY?
