Season 11 of the Real Housewives of New York is about to start filming any day now and rumor has it producers are on the hunt for a young new housewife.
It’s no secret that Carole Radziwill won’t be returning for season 11 so it’s not shocking to hear that producers are trying to find her replacement.
Word on the street is that Jill Zarin may be returning for season 11, however, new reports completely shut that rumor down.
Apparently, Shed Media isn’t interested in bringing back any former Housewives instead they are focused on bringing in a newbie to shake things up.
And they are looking at one Housewife, in particular, to help them find the newest addition to the RHONY cast.
A source says that producers are looking for a friend to help beef up Tinsley Mortimer’s storyline; claiming that Tinsley’s will get the boot if she doesn’t bring it during season 11.
“It would have to be someone who is, or would be, a friend to Tinsley. The audience and critics feel that Tinsley makes zero sense on this show, but she has this one last chance to prove herself by returning next season. The most logical thing is to bring someone in who would be a friend to her, especially now with Carole gone,” a source reveals.
Adding, that “the Jill Zarin thing is incredibly far-fetched.”
In fact, production says they found rumors about Jill’s return to RHONY as a full-time Housewife amusing.
Meanwhile, Naughty Gossip tells Shira that producers have “met with a lot of ladies and can’t find the right fit yet.”
I agree that Tinsley needs to bring it big time for season 11. She had NO storyline this season and was involved in zero drama. I’d like to see RHONY bring on a younger housewife in her late 30’s or early 40’s who’s rich, likes to flaunt her wealth and can shake things up a bit.
