Can Two Newbies Up The Drama Of “The Real Housewives Of New York City”?
We loved “The Real Housewives of New York.” Well, until they got eclipsed by the ladies of New Jersey and Atlanta. (Orange County, who?) So what’s the best way to stir up some new drama in New York City? Fresh meat! As rumors swirl that Bethenny Frankel is leaving to mix her Skinny Girl Margaritas on a solo show, Bravo is bringing in two new housewives to round out the cast. Read all about these two ladies, after the jump. P.S. No stripper/drug/murder scandals uncovered. As of yet. Sonja Morgan (left)
