"The Real Housewives of New York City" will see a major change next season, with new cast members replacing the four who won't be returning.
Before the new cast member's debut, the show's three surviving veteran cast members - Ramona Singer, LuAnn DeLesseps and Sonja Morgan offered some insight into the new additions - Heather Thomson, Carole Radziwill and Aviva Drescher.
Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon, Cindy Barshop and Alex McCord are officially out of "The Real Housewives of New York" season 5, the network confirmed on Saturday.
Rumors began early last week that Zarin, 47, Bensimon, 43, and McCord, 37, were fired from the show. However, the cast members and the network initially remained mum about the rumors, with the exception of Zarin's spokesperson who claimed that she was still negotiating with the network.
"The Real Housewives of New York City" may be saying goodbye to four cast members before the next season of the popular Bravo series.
The Huffington Post reports that Kelly Killoren Bensimon, 43, Alex McCord, 37, and Jill Zarin, 47, were notified on Thursday morning that they would not be part of the full-time cast in the upcoming season.
