Fashion influencer Lizzy Savetsky has officially signed on for the upcoming RHONY reboot, if you believe a brand-new and very juicy report from Page Six.
According to the gossip outlet, Lizzy boasts an impressive social media following which is partly why Bravo has been so interested in her. (She was reportedly lined up for a Real Housewives of Dallas reboot earlier this year).
“Bravo found people aren’t responding as well to the constant bickering and fighting of the [previous] cast,” an insider dished. “They’re hoping that this new cast will be a bit more inspiring and attract the younger audience.”
Implying that the new cast is set in stone, the insider revealed that we can expect all of them to come with sizeable Instagram followings. Vera Wang executive Priya Shukla is also reportedly in the running alongside Lizzy Savetsky for a spot on the RHONY reboot but has not signed on as a full-time Housewife.
“[The women are] already strong in the influencer space, and they are more aspirational,” revealed Page Six’s source. “They’re women who have their own brands, or at least strong Instagram followings.”
A few weeks ago, news broke that four women had signed on to join the reboot. Elizabeth Savetsky, influencer Sai De Silva, actress Orfeh, and model Ubah Hassan were the names floated according to Instagram account Bravo and Cocktails, but Orfeh has since stated she will not be a part of the reboot.
As previously reported, Bravo is rebooting The Real Housewives of New York and splitting it into two shows: The RHONY Season 14 reboot set to feature an all-new cast and RHONY: Legacy, which will feature current and former cast members.
Season 13 starred Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, Leah McSweeney, Sonja Morgan, and Eboni K. Williams but there’s been no official news on who is returning or who has been given the axe. Ramona and Luann, for their part, appeared on Season 1 of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip, and Leah just wrapped filming on Season 3 of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip. Additionally, Luann and Sonja are currently filming their own spinoff show, set to debut on either Bravo or Peacock later this year.
The Real Housewives of New York City is expected to begin filming in September with a planned return for sometime in 2023.
