So sad that they all were so desperate to save face and pretend that nothing was set in stone!
We all saw this coming!
Despite statements from Jill Zarin and Alex McCord claiming that they were still in negotiations to continue on the Real Housewives of New York City, returning castmember and our heart's desire Sonja Morgan, confirmed today that she had spoken to a producer, and they have, in fact, been axed - alongside Cindy Barshop and Kelly Bensimon!
"I really haven't had time to digest it properly. My voicemail was filled up today…At first, I just thought it was the usual rumors. I've been invited back. I found out today last minute. I feel like all seven of us are stars in our own right. We had the best season ever, the greatest ratings for New York Housewives ever. Whatever happens, everyone is a star in their own right. Obviously, first choice is always to be asked back and have a choice. You like to have a decision to make. But to not be asked back is sad, but nothing is final. You never say never! I have 100 percent faith in every girl that is on the show. We didn't get here for any reason except we are all very talented and have a lot to share on screen. I'm going to reach out and see and make sure they are happy. I'm sure that everybody has plans. I'm not worried. I can see Alex and Simon [McCord] having their own show with the kids doing all this freaky deaky things they do in Brooklyn. And I could see Jill, sort of like Barbara Walters having a talk show. And then I could see Kelly going off…her doing fashion."
Well, we think it's very nice of her to be so diplomatic about the whole thing!
But let's face it - the series may have HAD its best ratings yet, but last season was an insufferable, catty mess!
And don't be shy, dear - we all know that YOU and YOU ALONE are the true star of the show! We wouldn't know what to do if you or the Countess hadn't been invited back!
It's sad enough that our kooky Kelly is gone!
Sigh. Oh well!
Can't wait to see the new
and improved new season of Housewives! How about U?
