Bravo is reviving its plans for the Real Housewives of New York spinoff, RHONY: Legacy. After pressing pause on their plans for RHONY: Legacy earlier this year, Bravo has decided to revive the idea by giving the spinoff a new twist.
The plan is to reboot RHONY: Legacy as “a special-style show documenting a short span of time” making it an “RHUGT-like show with an all-RHONY cast.”
Contracts have been sent out. Bravo is currently waiting for the former Housewives to sign on the dotted line.
As we previously reported, Bravo’s plans for RHONY: Legacy fell apart during contract negotiations.
Jill Zarin, who was initially offered a spot on RHONY: Legacy, has not been asked to join this show. The RHONY OG reportedly tanked negotiations by playing hardball over salary demands.
However, the good news is, is that sources say that Ramona Singer has changed her mind and is now up for appearing on RHONY: Legacy.
Back in November, Ramona told Page Six, “I do not want to do the show any longer. It’s not for me at this time.” Yet, at the time sources made it clear that Bravo never offered Ramona a spot on RHONY: Legacy despite her being the franchise’s longest-remaining OG.
RHONY: Legacy is expected to air on Bravo.
The network is also in the middle of re-launching the RHONY franchise will an all-new cast. The freshly rebooted RHONY franchise is expected to return to Bravo for season 14 sometime in 2023.
According to Page Six, Bethenny recently shaded Luann after the frenemies had an almost run-in at a Broadway show last month.
A source previously told the gossip outlet that Luann stormed out of the opening night of Bad Cinderella after realizing she was sitting near the SkinnyGirl mogul. Another source insists that Luann “left with [her] date” because she was “feeling bad.”
Last week, Bethenny addressed the gossip on her ReWives podcast, saying, “It must be painful and challenging and really obsessive to be so fixated on someone else.”
Bethenny admitted that she feels “badly” for the Countess, who reportedly “spends a lot of time talking about [her] in her cabaret and in the media and on podcasts.”
“It’s time to sort of focus on yourself versus being so consumed with somebody else,” Bethenny added. “I wish her the very, very best, and I wish her a speedy recovery if she didn’t feel well during ‘Bad Cinderella’ halfway through.”
She ended the segment with a diss, saying that Luann is “not really on [her] radar,” before adding that she does not “spend a lot of time thinking about” her former co-star.
RHONY is expected to return to Bravo in mid-to-late 2023.
