Elyse Slaine Joins The Real Housewives Of New York City In ‘Prominent Role’ For Season 12!

Elyse Slaine has joined the cast of The Real Housewives of New York City, but she hasn't secured an apple at the moment. “Elyse isn’t a full-fledged housewife yet; they’re always testing new women,” a source told Us Weekly, noting she will have “a prominent role on the show, but is still considered a “friend” at this point.

The source adds that Elyse is “filming with all the women,” including Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Tinsley Mortimer, Dorinda Medley, Luann de Lesseps and newcomer Leah McSweeney. However, Leah is “the only new official Housewife,” per the insider.

The cast is currently filming in Rhode Island, which Slaine has been spotted on the trip.

Back in 2010, Elyse made headlines for her split with David Slaine, who worked undercover as an informant for the FBI from 2007 to 2009 to help the agents build cases against several people for insider trading. She was profiled by The Observer for a piece titled “The Wall Street Ex-Wives Club” at the time, reports the publication. 

As previously reported, Leah McSweeney joined the show as the newest cast member after Bethenny Frankel announced in August that she was leaving the show. At the time, she confirmed in a statement that “it’s time to move on and focus on my daughter, my philanthropy and my production partnership with Mark Burnett.”

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