Bravo Cleans 'New York' House
In an effort to inject some fresh blood into a show that had grown increasingly toxic, Bravo decided to overhaul the cast of "The Real Housewives of New York City" in the offseason. Just weeks before filming Season 5, it was announced that Jill Zarin ... more, Alex McCord, Kelly Bensimon and Cindy Barshop were effectively fired from the series, a decision that left only Ramona Singer, LuAnn de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan from the previous cast. But "New York" is not the only "Real Housewives" show that'll see some change. Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice won't be returning to the "Miami" cast. And Peggy Tanous recently left the "Orange County" show, wanting to distance herself from the "negative energy of the cast."
