Are These Your New New York Housewives?

housewives Are These Your New New York Housewives?

Heather Thompson, Aviva Drescher, and Carole Radziwill

Now that Bravo has officially given the axe to Real Housewives of New York Alex McCord, Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon, and Cindy Barshop , the rumor treadmill is already up and burning its morning calories over who the new school of classy ladies will be. New York Daily News has already fingered Kennedy-by-association Carole Radziwill, along with Yummie Tummie designer Heather Thomson and philanthropist Aviva Drescher.

The Observer was also been tipped off about Ms. Radziwill joining the cast, so that means the ABC producer and widow of Anthony Radziwill is definitely in, right?

For a little background info on these other two ladies: Ms. Drescher has a current Fame Game ranking of 18651 and is a philanthropist of some sort. (She lists her job as CEO of the Drescher Family, ostensibly because her husband, Reid Drescher, is busy being the founder of Spencer Clarke Securities & Investment Banking.) She will be playing the role, according to the Daily News’ source, of the “Wall Street wife.” She is also the only one of the three women who has not been featured on Oprah.

Ms. Thompson, according to Yummie Tummie’s website, was the founding Design Director of “Sean ‘Diddy’ Combsclothing line, but after working with some of the biggest names in entertainment for several years, decided to strike out on her home to create “3 section system” to sexify post-baby bodies. As late as August she was going by Heather Thompson-Schindler, but has dropped that last name somewhere in the last couple months. And she’s already camera-ready!

But let’s not jump the gun here: A Bravo spokesperson we talked to says they haven’t made an announcement about the new women, and the Internet has been known to be fallible, even when it comes to the very important news of who will be crying to Andy Cohen on upcoming reunion episodes. Good luck ladies!

    Thank God they’ve been axed.  They are truly awful.  I have never known such a back-stabbing, stirring, manipulating, disloyal bunch in my life.  The word “friendship” becomes a joke when applied to these women.  They have no conception of what the word means. 

    The ugly one with the long face, married to that dreadful Simon guy, is so pathetic.  She constantly tries to take on the Countess, and constantly fails.  She always will because she is no match for her.  Whenever she is privy to anything discussed in the absence of one of them, she cannot wait to rush over and tell everything that was said, just to try and cause grief, and they cannot see it.  They fall for it every time.

    They one who is now bankrupt because she has been living beyond her means, now has her comeuppance.
    Jill couldn’t wait to lecture her on why, and what she should have done and what she did do.  Some help that is after the fact.

    Ramona, in my opinion, is so “me, me, me”, that she’s incapable to even letting the other person speak, never mind listening.

    Let’s hope the new ones will be of a higher calibre so that we aren’t constantly cringing, looking away from the screen and muting the TV.
