Real Housewives of New York CAST Shake Up!

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.

Aviva Drescher has been fired from the Bravo series. Her co-star Ramona Singer has been demoted to “a friend of…” similar to LuAnn De Lesseps, who only appeared on a handful of episodes last season.

“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.

  1. Don’t like to kick someone when they are down, but Ramona brought this upon herself. She really did speak ill of everyone, just for the fun of it sometimes. She thought she was the queen bee during the reunion show when she tried to put a stop to the questioning about her marriage, even when it wasn’t directly about it. She had prepared her “line” and stuck to it. The item mentioned the show will be around Heather, Kristen and Carol, no mention of Sonya- she is so delusional. Aviva such a sad case, not quite as bad as the model, Kelly, from a few seasons before. Aviva didn’t seem to start out that way, don’t know what happened to her, but shouldn’t be on TV.
