The Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Meet the Woman Who Could Possibly Replace Dorinda Medley on RHONY

Looks like Bravo is already on the hunt to replace the vacancy left by Dorinda Medley following her exit, aka firing from the Real Housewives of New York.

According to Page Six, Rachel Uchitel may be in the running to join the season 13 cast of RHONY. Uchitel was on the shortlist to join the season 12 cast, but Bravo instead went with Leah McSweeney.

An insider claims that Uchitel is keen to join the RHONY cast.

“She’s linked to New York — growing up here, and [she was] on the cover of the New York Post as ‘New York’s tragic face,’” the insider says.

If you’re wondering who the f–k is Rachel Uchitel, let me break it down for you.

Uchitel is most famous for being one of Tiger Woods’ many mistresses as well as having an affair with married, former Bones star David Boreanaz.

She has been linked to Harry Dubin, who has dated RHONY stars Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, and Luann de Lesseps. Dubin was married to former cast member Aviva Drescher.

Oddly, enough Uchitel’s Real Housewives connections don’t end there. She also dated RHOBH’s Paul “PK” Kemsley for a year before he started dating his now-wife, Dorit Kemsley.

On top of all of that, Uchitel does have a strong connection to New York, one that goes beyond just growing up in the Big Apple. Her fiancé, James Andrew O’Grady, died at the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

Bravo denies that they are considering Uchitel to replace Dorinda. Uchitel, on the other hand, Uchitel told Page Six the rumor is “News to me!” along with the winking-face emoji.

I think Uchitel would be a scandalous and very interesting addition to RHONY; however, I don’t think she’s the right fit, especially since Bravo wants to diversify the cast to make it better represent NYC.

The Real Housewives of New York airs on Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET.
