Sources Claim That “There’s Going To Be Some Changes” Coming To RHONY Next Season As Bravo Is Planning To ‘Shake Things Up’

News details have emerged about the casting for the new season of The Real Housewives of New York City.

Sources reveal that “Bravo is planning to shake things up with The Real Housewives of New York next year,” according to Us Weekly.

A second insider echoes, “There’s going to be some changes. … A handful of white women doesn’t necessarily represent what New York City is all about.”

Luann de Lesseps also teased some changes that are coming to the show next season, “There’s definitely gonna be some new Housewives,” she told Extra.

Last week, cast member Leah McSweeney revealed that she wants Bravo to add some diversity to the Bravo hit reality series.

“I hope that there’s not only diversity of race but an even deeper diversity of where someone lives or what their interests are,” she told Page Six. “I hope that there’s just more diversity all across the board because New Yorkers are not a monolith, obviously. I think that it is gonna head in that direction.”

Late last month, sources revealed that RHONY is getting a major cast shakeup for the show's upcoming thirteenth season.

The National Enquirer reported that “bosses” of the Bravo hit reality series are supposedly bringing in some “fresh faces” and getting rid of a few “old ones” to add some diversity to the show.

“Producers are in talks with potential new cast members,” an insider told the tabloid.

The insider continued, “Real estate mogul, Lisa Simonsen, who counts many of the world’s billionaires as clients is one of their top choices, but she’s not on board yet.”

The outlet also reported that Bravo executives are also looking to add Kimora Lee Simmons and Karen Lo. “Karen recently purchase a $50 million penthouse in one of New York’s most exclusive buildings and Kimora has been an uber-successful fashion designer, supermodel, and reality star,” the uncertain insider shares.

The outlet went on to say that a few of the ladies from the show who are on the chopping block include Ramona Singer, Dorinda Medley, and Sonja Morgan. “Producers won”t make final casting decisions until after the reunion,” the unnamed insider stated. The anonymous source further purports the show’s producers are “on the hunt and want the show to represent New York City’s diversity.”
