According to a Huffington Post report, Real Housewives of New York City cast members Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon and Alex McCord were fired from the show and will not be returning for season 5.
The women reportedly received news of the firing Thursday morning, but so far the ladies are saying this is not final.
A rep for Zarin told People, “Jill is still in discussions with Bravo for season 5 and no final decisions have been made.”
McCord Tweeted, “Speaking for myself only, there is no decision yet whether I’m in or out of #RHONY. Nothing’s finalized, though I’d like to do another year.”
Alex and Jill have been on the show since the first season. Their departure would leave just Ramona Singer and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps as original cast members.
The Huffington Post did not cite a reason for the ladies getting fired, but said their information is from an insie source at Bravo.
