US weekly is reporting four NYC Housewives castmates are on the chopping block: Cindy Barshop, Kelly Killoren Bensimon, Alex McCord and Jill Zarin. (“They are sick of her being a diva,” a source explains of Zarin, 47.)
The Huffington Post reports that Zarin, Bensimon, 43, McCord, 37 were notified by Bravo on Thursday morning that they would not be part of the full-time cast next season.
With that group gone, only LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan will remain in the core cast, with additional new castmates to be determined.
Singer, meanwhile, is negotiating a new contract, but another source says, “If they can’t agree, she will be off the show as well.”
I hope Ramona stays! Good decision regarding Jill! Not a fan of Bethenny either!
