Andy Cohen talks about the future of “The Real Housewives of New York”.
During a recent appearance on the Wendy Williams Show, guest host Michael Rapaport asked Cohen about the fate of The Real Housewives of New York and last season’s backlash. Season 13 saw extremely low ratings and a canceled reunion.
“We’re taking a break right now,” revealed Cohen during his talk show appearance. “We have a lot of auditions and we’re exploring every option, man.”
After Cohen’s appearance on “The Wendy Williams Show”, the journalist Anthony Dominic tweeted a new rumor about the next season. “#RHONY fans!” Dominik wrote. “I was told that Bravo currently has no new season planned for next year and that the franchise will be taking a serious break before restarting. The series is still alive, but Bravo would like to take the time to make it worth coming back. “
During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Cohen had some nice words to say about last season’s “Real Housewives of New York,” praising women for their hard work.
“You know, we were talking about the Orange County season that people didn’t love. That last season of New York was a season that wasn’t people’s favorite season,” Cohen said. “But again, it was filmed during COVID, we went to Salem, Massachusetts, probably a place we wouldn’t have gone in other times of the year. We have been to Ramona’s house quite often and are looking forward to the next season and building on that. “
Cohen added, “It’s fun to have this problem. How do we make a great show better? And that’s what we’re working on. “
It’s not the first time The Real Housewives of New York has been paused. After the fourth season, the producers took a break from the franchise when they decided to recast some of the show’s members.
Although it’s unclear who will be returning in season 14, both Ramona Singer and Leah McSweeney have said they would like to return to “The Real Housewives of New York”.
“To me, I always say you’re good at what you do if you love what you do,” Singer Entertainment told Tonight on October 20, 2021. “And I loved doing the show on Peacock. [The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip], and even during COVID I loved doing it [RHONY]. We’ve had some ups and downs, but actually I loved it. “
McSweeney also agreed with Singer’s sentiments, telling the point of sale that same evening, “Of course I think I would definitely do it [come back], absolutely, because I really don’t want last season to be the way I went out just because it was a strange season with COVID and all. “
McSweeney also added at the time: “I think RHONYwill definitely come back. Who will be there, I have no idea. What if it comes back? I do not know.”
