“The Real Housewives of New York City” is getting a new cast for the new season on Bravo.
Sai De Silva, Ubah Hassan, Erin Lichy, Jenna Lyons, Lizzy Savetsky, Jessel Taank, and Brynn Whitfield will all be in Season 14. Fans were surprised when the ladies walked on stage during a taping of “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” on Sunday night at BravoCon to share the news.
In an exclusive interview with Variety in March, “Real Housewives” executive producer Andy Cohen said that Bravo was looking for a cast that was more like New York City. So does this one. Lyons says he’s gay, and Taank will be the first Indian housewife.
The long-awaited show will start filming this fall, and the first episode will air in 2023. According to the official summary, Season 14 will be about “a brand-new group of seven dynamic women who run in the same social circles and do well in one of the world’s most diverse and exciting cities.”
In NYC, these women have made their mark in fashion, real estate, philanthropy, and social influence. Now, they will talk about their lives in the city that never sleeps as they juggle careers, families, and busy social lives.
Variety has heard that most of the roles for the legacy version of “Real Housewives of New York City” have been filled and that deals are almost done. One source says that Dorinda Medley and Sonja Morgan will be on the show.
At an “Ultimate Girls Trip” panel at BravoCon, Elizabeth Wagmeister asked the producers of “Ultimate Girls Trip” about the long-running show. Lisa Shannon, the show’s executive producer, didn’t say much, but she did hint that the show is on its way.
Medley didn’t say much when Variety asked her at BravoCon if she might join the cast of “Legacy.” She told him, “I swear to you, you know just as much as we do.” More people have told me about the new girls on “RHONY” than about “Legacy.” Listen, if you hear anything, call me! I’ll be waiting at Blue Stone Manor, which I’ll also be decorating for Halloween. “
At the “Watch What Happens Live” taping on Sunday night, there were 28 surprise guests, including Teresa Giudice, Whitney Rose, Heather Gay, Meredith Marks, Ashley Darby, Wendy Osefo, Taylor Armstrong, Eva Marcille, Jill Zarin, Kyle Richards, and Dorit Kemsley.
