“I know what happened. New York is a small place,” Gellis said. “This person I feel like has been done this road before.”

She added, “I don’t know why they are waiting to say it or not say it.” Gellis said she heard what happened and was “zero percent surprised.”

Gellis said it “100 percent lines up with this person.”

She added, “It’s hard to be on television if you have extreme views and you don’t want to hear other people’s point of view.” She said she believed the cast member would appear in the new season but could be phased out slowly.

Gellis didn’t name Lizzy Savetsky as the cast member in question, but Page Six confirmed the news.
