The cast change is reportedly due to Bravo wanting to build the reality show around cast members Heather Thompson, Kristen Taekman and Carole Radziwill.
The Real Housewives of New York City has reportedly cast off one of its housewives.
“Bravo is casting the show around (cast members) Heather Thomson and Kristen Taekman and Carole Radziwill,” says a source about the reason behind the cast shake up.
It’s being reported that when Ramona carried the show, is why ratings plummeted.
The insider also said that Singer’s six-figure paycheck contributed to why she was bumped to a recurring role. She is the longest-running original cast member, having starred on the show since its 2008 premiere.
Drescher, 45, had been on the show for the last two seasons, including a tumultuous one that saw her get into a feud with Radziwill and throwing her prosthetic leg across the room during the season six finale.
Singer, 57, suffered personal setbacks after the show concluded filming its sixth season. Her marriage to Mario, her husband of 22 years, imploded after his affair was made public earlier this year.
The reality star refused to discuss the topic during the “RHONY” reunion show in August, but a few weeks later she announced on twitter that she had separated with her husband.
