Who knew that Bethenny Frankel's exit would bring about such a swift death to this mess?
As we've discussed, ever since she left the reality series, The Real Housewives of New York has pretty much degraded into incessant, insufferable squabbling between the castmembers, and most episodes consist of them all screaming over one other for the duration of the hour - and apparently, the drama has gotten so bad that it's permeated into the women's relationships OFF-camera!
A source close to the series reveals:
“Things have gotten so bad that producers are worried that this cast can no longer film together. All the ladies have long memories and will not let the smallest thing go. The level of hatred at the moment is so high that it's toxic and all consuming. It doesn’t make for good TV drama. Now it’s just petty and sad. This sort of behavior should be rejected by all the cast members, no matter how hot disagreements get on the show. It has stopped being a TV fight and is now a real life battle that is unacceptable.”
Not only is it just petty and sad, it's essentially unwatchable!
We say kick these women - or all but our beloved Sonya! - to the curb, observe what makes Beverly Hills and New Jersey great (and boy, are they GREAT!), and cast some new women in that vein for season five!
What do U think should be done next season to make the show good again?
