After the unceremonious firing of four cast members of Bravo's Real Housewives of New York, fans have been abuzz (positively abuzz!) about who would replace them. It seems now they might have an answer.
Yes indoody, reports are flooding (simply flooding!) in, all suggesting that the three women pictured above are set to sign away their lives to become the next reality TV ghouls. They are, from left to right:
Aviva Drescher: The Bravs apparently wanted a "Wall Street wife," a sort of Kathy Fuld type I guess, and they found her in the "philanthropist" Ms. Drescher. She used to work in a bridal shop in Flushing, Queens and... well you know how the rest goes. No, in truth Drescher spends most of her time doing charity, it seems. So look for her to be holier-than-thou and maybe the target of a little anti-Wall Street rage. (Or who knows, she'll just be another clownish drunk. That's basically what everyone is these days, right?)
Heather Thomson: Thomson is a mother of two who also runs the "shapewear" line Yummie Tummie, which was once featured on Oprah's Favorite Things. So she's one of those fabled spanx millionaires that some thought were only legend. She's also worked as a stylist, so we'll probably get a fair amount of celebrity name dropping. Also hopefully she'll interact with incumbent Housewives luna moth Ramona, in a situation that ends with Ramona tangled in a giant piece of shapewear, never to get free.
Carole Radziwill: This lady has a Kennedy Connection™. Yup, an honest to goodness connection to the royals of America. Her late husband, filmmaker Anthony Radziwill, was the son of Lee Radziwill née Bouvier, Jackie O's little sister. Adding to the pedigree is the fact that Carole is an author and a former ABC News producer. So she clearly wins, bigtime. Expect everyone to hate her.
So those are your new harridans, New York! Well, maybe. Enjoy them and treat them well. Meanwhile, Alex, Kelly, Jill, and then one called "Cindy" can all be seen waiting outside the Love, Loss, and What I Wore stage door, begging for a role. [NYDN; images via Getty]
