It was previously reported that production was looking for new blood for the show. That means someone could be on the chopping block and Mortimer was rumored to be the one to be replaced.

The person reportedly being considered to join the cast is Anthony Scaramucci’s wife, Deidre Ball, according to Page Six. There was a reason given for Mortimer possibly being pushed out.

“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.

The rumor also claimed that Barbara Kavovit won’t be a main cast member after joining last season. “She’s out. She didn’t become a part of the ensemble,” the source claimed.

Another report claimed that she is staying for another season

It’s still unclear what Mortimer’s fate will be when it comes to the show. After this rumor, there was a report that she is staying.

According to Us Weekly, she wasn’t fired from the show. However, there wasn’t much more information given about the situation.

There was another big casting announcement made after these rumors. Bethenny Frankel won’t be returning for another season.

“I have decided to leave the Housewives franchise to explore my next chapter. It’s time to move on and focus on my daughter, my philanthropy and my production partnership with Mark Burnett, producing and starring in shows which represent a shift in the conversation for women,” she said in a statement given to People.

The statement continued, “With the changes in modern culture, I want to highlight the strength, confidence and unstoppable power that women have. My experience at Bravo has been an incredibly magical ride.”

She ended it with, “I am so grateful to them for highlighting my entrepreneurialism and allowing me to pave the way for many women to achieve their goals. I am excited for my future. The best is yet to come.”

It’s unknown if her decision has any affect over the rumored decisions that were being made over casting. Now there is a new rumor about Mortimer and filming.

Mortimer has reportedly skipped filming

Now there is a question of whether the reality star is quitting after rumors that she is being fired. That’s because she reportedly didn’t show up for work.

Page Six reports that Mortimer left town for Chicago with Scott Kluth instead of showing up to film on Oct. 31 at the Eventi Hotel. Some of the cast members believe she is quitting the show.

It’s still unclear whether she is leaving the show in the middle of season 12, or if she plans on returning. Sources claimed that she is continuing with the show in some way.
