Barbara Kavovit Is Joining The Real Housewives Of New York City For Season 11!

Barbara Kavovit is joining the cast of the upcoming eleventh season of The Real Housewives of New York City, according to Us Weekly. Kavovit, who runs an on-the-go bag business called DIYva, is friends with longtime cast member Luann de Lesseps.

Barbara has been spotted filming with some of the ladies, most recently at Frankel's launch of Skinnygirl Jeans.

Meanwhile, Page Six previously reported earlier this month that Barbara was “testing” an unlikely new cast member — Kavovit was allegedly filming with the rest of the cast as a tryout to become a full-time co-star as opposed to a so-called “friend of the ‘Housewives, ” or part-time cast member.

You may remember of Kavovit’s off-camera conversation with Carole Radziwill about de Lesseps’ relationship with her then-fiancé, Tom D’Agostino Jr., during season 9 of the Bravo hit reality series.

While Kavovit did not appear on the episode, which aired in May 2017, Radziwill’s mic picked up their conversation at a mutual friends’ holiday party. “I think she has something to prove,” Kavovit told Radziwill at the time about de Lesseps’ upcoming New Years Eve nuptials.“She’d rather go through with it and get divorced than call it off.”

According to multiple reports, Kavovit tried to prevent Bravo from airing her conversation with Radziwill at the time. De Lesseps, meanwhile, did split from D’Agostino Jr. after only seven months of marriage in August 2017.

According to sources, Kavovit may be a full-time cast member, but it’s too early to tell. Kavovit will replace Radziwill after she confirmed back in July that she was leaving the show following six seasons as a full-time cast member.
