Well, that didn't take long at all, did it?
Out with the old, in the new!
Although Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Kelly Bensimon, and Cindy Barshop were only just booted from the new season of The Real Housewives of New York City, sources close to production have revealed that three new ladies have already signed on - and although they've yet to be confirmed, they already sound like a breath of fresh air!
Apparently these rumored newbies include

We do have to commend her! She dodged that bullet BIG TIME!
As everyone knows, Bethenny Frankel smartly used her time on Real Housewives of New York to promote her business ventures, and willingly left after the fourth season for her own spin-off, while the rest of the cast continued on and essentially descended into incessant, nasty squabbling and screaming over one another for an entire season.
As a result, Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Kelly Bensimon and Cindy Barshop have all been axed, but instead of gloating or sticking it to them, the Skinnygirl herself is instead taking the high road when asked to comment on it all!

The first of the four speak and they speak EXCLUSIVELY to us!
It was confirmed over the weekend that four of the ladies from the Real Housewives of New York City were being given the boot and won't be back next season. Alex, Jill and Kelly have been with the show a long time, so they've had time to prepare for this day to come. However, Cindy Barshop was the resident newbie of the show and her heave-ho we thought would be a devestating blow to her.
However, in this statement she has released EXCLUSIVELY to PerezHilton.com, Cindy assures us that this won't be the last we all see of her and that's she perfectly fine with the way things turned out for her. She says:

A spokesperson for the network announced:

So sad that they all were so desperate to save face and pretend that nothing was set in stone!

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!

Can't say we're surprised!
