This is just getting sad. Time to let it go!
Although Alex McCord and her husband, Simon Van Kempen, were fired from the new season of The Real Housewives of New York City, the pair are apparently so desperate to stay on that they have planned to meet with boss Andy Cohen in a last-ditch attempt to stay on the reality series!
However, Andy has no intention of doing so, but - in probably a pity move - he apparently is willing to play nice and let them know that he'd like for them to make occasional guest appearances on the network!

You could blame it on the ah-ah-ah-alcohol, but in the end, their bitterness ran deep, so we're not surprised at all.
BRAVO cleared house this week as four stars from The Real Housewives of New York City were cut from the show to make room for new blood. To us, the story was particularly interesting because the original housewives aren't saying much about it. Then again, maybe that's because it was one Housewives' mission to make sure the others were taken off the show to begin with!
According to sources, Ramona Singer allegedly played a part in giving Jill Zarin the boot from their show. The story goes that Ramona "came to Bravo with a few pals she thought would make good additions. Bravo decided to go with the new girls and not Jill, so Ramona basically ran her off the show."
However, when pressed about the issue, Ramona swears she had nothing to do with the final decision to have Jill fired, saying:

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:
