Just when I was really starting to like Carole, she announces her departure from the hit Bravo reality show. So what’s the network to do when one of their main ‘wives is leaving? Well if you believe the sources – they are looking to replace her with a younger woman!
“Producers are always looking for great new cast members and have several people in mind to replace Carole,” revealed a source, noting show executives “want to go younger.”
Usually I’ll take Radar with a grain of salt; however I do see Bravo going in this direction as they have had the same cast for quite some time. The article also points out that Luann, 53, Ramona 61, and Bethenny 47, “started RHONY 10 years ago” and “Producers want to turn back the clock and find ladies a decade younger.”
Tinsley is by far the youngest of the bunch and I do think she was a great addition to the cast. Being a NY socialite who is looking for love has balanced out some of the more serious story lines that we have seen in the past few years. Perhaps Tins has a friend or two she could suggest?
The source adds that “Ideally, the new cast members would be in their late 30s and early 40s. They want women who are successful and they love folks who are already famous.”
Honestly I can’t think of a NY woman who is already famous that I see as a fit, unless of course Chrissy Teigen wants to join. Are you reading this Chrissy??
While rumors were swirling that Jill Zarin may be making a comeback, we recently reported that it would most likely only be as a ‘friend’ status and not a full time housewife (for original story click here.) With Carole deciding to leave, and no one yet to confirmed to replace her the hunt is on for the next New York housewife. Let the search begin!
