Though no particular names had been published, he instructed Variety the plan is to interchange the display’s present lineup with completely contemporary blood, whilst launching a 2nd collection — referred to as “RHONY: Throwback” or “RHONY: Legacy” — full of acquainted faces from all through the display’s run.
The determination comes after the display’s extraordinarily divisive Season 13, which ended with Bravo having to do an inside investigation into Ramona Singer following lawsuits from Eboni Okay. Williams. Singer used to be sooner or later cleared, however a reunion used to be by no means filmed.

Dorinda — who used to be a fixture at the display for seasons 7-12 — believed that, ahead of the announcement, there used to be a “frenzy” from lovers making an attempt to determine what used to be going down with the display going ahead.
“I think the announcement Andy made yesterday was absolutely brilliant. I wrote to him and told him. It quells the noise, it gives us something to think about,” she added.
“I think it comes down to, you can’t teach an old dog new tricks and we are old dogs. It’s not bad, it’s not good, it’s not mean, it is hard,” she stated of the verdict to separate the casts between OGs and new, possibly more youthful blood.
“It’s very hard for a 58-year-old, 60-year-old woman to be sitting at a table with a 34-year-old girl and try to relate. It’s just a different world,” she defined. “I think it’s so clever that now they can create a show that’s all fresh faces, living in New York as a young, strong, diversified, powerful woman. And then you don’t have to get rid of the oldies but goodies”
“There is something about a Bravo fan, they love the OGs. They love the way it used to be. Ladies who lunch, dressing up, being our wacky, silly selves,” she added, pronouncing she’d love for the brand new display to shift focal point clear of uptown NY and head downtown for a contemporary standpoint.
“So I think Andy, Andy Cohen, you made it nice and you got it right on this one. I am very excited and I heard some women in the cast are not so excited. And they are not quite sure what it means,” she persisted, alluding to conversations in the back of closed doorways. “But for me, I’ve been on pause for two years, so I’m like, ‘Now you are all on pause with me.’ So I am just going to keep it rolling.”
She stated the announcement additionally provides her a brand new solution when requested about her long term on RHONY on every occasion she does interviews.
“I am going to say, ‘Listen, whoa, whoa, whoa the legacy is coming up, I don’t know. We’ll see. Let’s see if I make the legacy,'” she added. “Which I hope I do, because I am the queen of making it nice, not well bitch, clip, two martinis not three, do I need to continue?”
She additionally stated she’d love to look the “Legacy” display lean into the “Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip” layout, mashing up forged participants from other eras and throwing them into filming for a brief time frame.
“I lean toward the mashup thing they’re doing. I like this idea of filming for 10 days and doing 6-8 episodes and then disappear, now you see us, now you don’t,” she stated. “Create the frenzy, you don’t know the revolving door, who’s going to come in. Who knows? It’s a plethora of people. I’m excited, I really am.”
