Could a new couple be part of next season’s Real Housewives of New York City? Sources claim that Anthony Scaramucci’s wife Deidre Ball, who filed for divorce from him when she was nine months pregnant in 2017, might be joining the show.
“Scaramucci’s wife is doing the Housewives,” a Page Six source claimed on Monday, June 10. “They’ve been wanting new blood and have been striking out with new cast members. She’s been meeting with Bravo.”
“It’s reality-TV gold,” another insider said. “I’d love to have her on.”
Deidre, 40, could be replacing three-season mainstay Tinsley Mortimer. Page Six reported that the bubby blonde has been given the “heave-ho” by the network.
“No one knows her and it’s like starting all over every season . . . How many seasons can they sit around talking about her dating or not dating (sometimes-boyfriend) Scott (Kluth)?” a Page Six source said.
Newbie Barbara Kavovit may also be getting the boot. “She’s out. She didn’t become a part of the ensemble,” the insider said.
Deidre made headlines in 2017 when she made the drastic move to file for divorce from Anthony, 55, shortly before giving birth to their second child.
She was reportedly fed up with their 3-year marriage during his short time as White House Communications Director. Deidre eventually changed her mind about the divorce and wound up standing by her man.
Anthony dabbled in reality television earlier this year when he appeared on the second season of Celebrity Big Brother. He was later revealed to be a fake houseguest among the rest who were actually competing.
