Bethenny Frankel is here to stay! The Real Housewives of New York star has been rewarded for bringing drama this season with a renewed contract, but the same can’t be said for her co-stars! Click through to find out which cast members didn’t make the cut for next season.
“Bethenny has already been asked to come back and she accepted,” a source told RadarOnline. “It was in her contract that if Bravo made the offer, that she would accept.”
Since Bethenny “loves being on television,” producers hope the Skinnygirl mogul will “let her guard down even more and fight with the other ladies."
Although Bethenny’s return brought more jaw-dropping drama to the season, newcomer Dorinda Medley didn't deliver. “Viewers just didn’t respond to her at all,” a source said. “Dorinda didn’t bring anything to the show. She was just boring!”
It has also been reported that Kristen Taekman will receive the axe too. “Kristen will probably not be invited back to the show because she doesn’t fit in and her storyline is stale,” a source told Page Six.
With filming to begin in the fall, RHONY producers are searching for “two new sexy ladies that will add to the dynamic of the current group.” The insider added, “They need to shake things up!”
