Bravo announced that it is rebooting “The Real Housewives of New York City” and likely recasting the series from scratch in addition to launching a second show that will include former costars.
Andy Cohen says the team is still “looking” for new “Housewives” and that he “want[s] to get the cast right,” so fans will not be seeing a Season 14 trailer or cast announcement anytime soon.
As for “RHONY: Throwback” or “RHONY: Legacy,” which are the working titles Cohen used, Bravo has not begun casting — although Cohen admitted he knows who he wants back.
The “Watch What Happens Live” host explained he wants “people who are beloved by fans,” but he would not elaborate on the ever-controversial Ramona Singer. As for fan favorite alum Bethenny Frankel, he said he “can’t imagine” she would want to return since moving out of the city, but he would “never turn down a conversation” with her.
He added that they are "totally revitalizing ‘RHONY’ with the energy and spirit of the city of New York and bringing it up to date while also giving the fans the gift of being able to visit with their old friends."
