Sometimes you just can’t make it in New York City.
Not every Housewives franchise can be as exciting as the ladies in Atlanta, but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the reunion taping of The Real Housewives of New York City was “drama free” and Bravo execs are considering getting rid of the franchise to make room for new shows worth watching.
“The taping was beyond boring,” a source close to the show told Radar about the Friday, June 13, event. “Yes, everyone showed up and there were tears and fights, but not about anything that mattered at all. There just wasn’t enough going on in the season to make a reunion anything special.”
Low ratings plagued this sleepy season, and the source told Radar that the reunion isn’t going to offer any fireworks either, with the cast members Ramona Singer, Aviva Drescher, Carole Radziwill, Kristen Taekman, Sonja Morgan, LuAnn de Lesseps and Heather Thomson unable to drum up the drama.
“The show was ridiculous. Andy [Cohen] tried everything he could to get the ladies to be interesting, but they’ve run out of story lines. It was completely drama free.”
The source said the network is considering canceling the show.
“The Real Housewives of New York City is just a failing franchise now,” the source said. “The ratings are a bust and the women aren’t doing anything to help the show. Ramona had a lot of interesting things happening in her personal life but she made sure it didn’t make the show. Carole and Aviva tried to have a storyline, but even Aviva’s show absences didn’t help the ratings. There isn’t anything compelling with these women now.”
