‘RHONY’: Is Tinsley Mortimer Getting Replaced by Anthony Scaramucci’s Wife, Deidre Ball?
The Real Housewives of New York has changed cast members over the past few seasons. It will probably happen again next season according to reports.
One person that is reportedly being considered to join the cast is Anthony Scaramucci’s wife, Deidre Ball. Who will she replace and why are some cast members possibly getting the boot? Here is everything you need to know.
Tinsley Mortimer and Barbara Kavovit are reportedly getting replaced
The cast for next season of RHONY is already being considered. Mortimer and newcomer, Barbara Kavovit are reportedly getting replaced.
“No one knows her and it’s like starting all over every season . . . How many seasons can they sit around talking about her dating or not dating [sometimes-boyfriend] Scott [Kluth]?” a source said according to Page Six.
Kavovit has also had a hard time finding her footing on the show. “She’s out. She didn’t become a part of the ensemble,” said the source.
It’s possible other cast members could be gone next season
It would make sense that Kavovit and Mortimer would be the ones to be given the boot because they are the newest cast members. However, there is another report that other cast members might be on the chopping block.
“Luann [de Lesseps] and Ramona [Singer] are on the chopping block,” a source told Radar Online. There is a lot of drama around Lesseps but there might be a reason she could get the boot.
“She wants more money than Bethenny [Frankel], which would essentially make her the highest paid housewife,” said the source. Although her legal troubles have been covered on the show before, a source also claimed that they could be a make her a “liability.”
Singer’s spot might also be at risk. “Her storyline has run its course and producers are actively casting to replace her,” an insider claimed.
Deidre Ball is being considered for the cast
Anthony Scaramucci served as the communications director in the White House for 11 days. He reportedly threatened to fire everyone in the communications department after there was a leak from a dinner he had with President Trump. Scaramucci has since made it to reality TV by appearing on Celebrity Big Brother.
Ball is reportedly being considered for the cast of RHONY. “Scaramucci’s wife is doing the Housewives. They’ve been wanting new blood and have been striking out with new cast members. She’s been meeting with Bravo,” a source said according to Page Six.
Another source reportedly said, “It’s reality-TV gold. I’d love to have her on.” Deidre made the news when she filed for divorce from her husband when she was nine months pregnant.
She gave birth to their son, James and claimed Anthony didn’t meet him yet four days later. “When James was born, he sent her a text saying, ‘Congratulations, I’ll pray for our child,’” a source claimed according to Page Six. The married couple ended up staying together.
