With season seven of The Real Housewives of New York City set to end shortly, casting for the next season is beginning. Rumors are already circulating all over the web about who is in and who is out. So far, it has been reported that Bethenny Frankel will be returning, Kristen Taekman and Dorinda Medley may have been fired, and Heather Thomson might have already quit. New information is coming out about why Heather may have actually quit.
Previous reports stated that Heather chose to leave due to the editors only showing her fighting with Bethenny and Sonja Morgan rather than promoting her business. Heather joined the show to promote her business, but a battle of the businesses could be the reason why she is leaving.
“She made the decision after the reunion, but she has a lot of negative incoming from fans because of her behavior on the island,” a source revealed to Naughty Gossip. “Heather is a business woman and Bethenny put her down all season. They were branding experts, but Bethenny wanted to be Queen Bee.”
Throughout the season, Bethenny and Heather fought over Bethenny thinking Heather was prying into her life too much. Heather also became irritated with Bethenny over trying to tell Kristen what to do with her nail polish line, Pop of Color, and Ramona Singer what to do with the book she was writing.
The source continued, “You could tell that she was very frustrated. She complained about the editing on twitter. Bethenny came back with a baseball bat. Heather can’t utter a sound without Bethenny lauching a full out offensive. Bethenny also can’t have a friend like Carole [Radziwill], share time with someone she doesn’t like.”
With the eighth season not set to begin filming for several months, more casting rumors are sure to come out.
Do you believe Heather is really leaving RHONY? Do you think Bethenny pushed her out?
