The Cast Of “The Real Housewives Of New York City” Reboot Was Announced At BravoCon

October 17, 2022 / Posted by:

The last season of The Real Housewives of New York City, starring Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, LuAnn de Lesseps, Ebony Williams, and Leah McSweeney, was such a colossal failure that there wasn’t even a screechy reunion, and the whole cast was tossed out, sending Andy Cohen and Bravo back to the drawing board to make the show watchable and reboot the whole thing. And if the fact that parts of this weekend’s BravoCon were a mess, the announcement of the all-new cast to bring the show back to life for season 14 to an already skeptical audience could be a bad omen–which, in the Bravo-verse is actually a good omen–because Bravo fans love mess. 

Variety says that at a taping of Watch What Happens live on the last night of BravoCon, Andy introduced apprehensive fans to the new group of women who will hopefully bring some fresh foolery back to The Big Apple.

The news was revealed at a “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen” taping on Sunday night during BravoCon, when the ladies surprised fans by walking on stage. 

Production is set to begin this fall and the highly-anticipated show will premiere in 2023. According to its official logline, Season 14 will follow “an all-new group of seven dynamic women who run in the same social circles, thriving in one of the most diverse and electric cities in the world. From fashion and real estate, to philanthropy and social influence, these women have made their mark in NYC and will now share their lives as they juggle careers, family life and jam-packed social calendars in the city that never sleeps.”

Here are the new ladies! Hopefully, they bring more fun and enticing drama and less shameful racial microaggressions. via Bravo:

Sai De Silva is an Afro-Latina, born and raised in New York. She is the creative director of Scout the City, which originated as a passion project blog and quickly evolved into an online lifestyle destination. Scout the City chronicles Sai’s adventures of chic parenting from her home in Brooklyn where she resides with husband David Craig and their two children, London and Rio.

Ubah Hassan is a Somalian model and philanthropist who moved to New York and made it her home. At a young age, Ubah fled to Kenya with her dad and brother, but later moved to Canada where she was spotted by a photographer and was subsequently signed by a modeling agency. Ubah is also an entrepreneur and the founder of UBAHHOT, a hot sauce company she built from scratch.

Erin Dana Lichy is a funny, confident and candid New Yorker, raised in Manhattan as one of five children in a close-knit Israeli family. A born go-getter, Erin became a real estate agent at 19 and owns her own home renovation and design firm, Homegirl. Erin’s husband is an attorney and owner of Lichy Law. The couple share three children together and live in Tribeca. Erin is super sociable, loves being around others and is always up for a good time.

Jenna Lyons is the former president and executive creative director of J.Crew Group, where she was widely recognized as the creative force behind the American retail chain’s phenomenal rise from floundering catalogue chain to one of the most coveted fashion brands in the U.S. Jenna is now co-founder and CEO of direct-to-consumer beauty brand, LoveSeen, and resides in New York City with her son Beckett.

Lizzy Savetsky is a digital influencer, activist, mom of three and wife to plastic surgeon Dr. Ira Savetsky. Originally from Fort Worth, Texas, Savetsky moved to New York for college and, after a brief stint back in her home state, returned to the Big Apple. Lizzy uses her platform to express her style, educate others on her deep-rooted beliefs and hosts Instagram show “Bashert,” where she is setting out to help Jewish singles find love.

Jessel Taank is an outgoing and unreserved fashion publicist and brand consultant, known for thinking outside the box. Jessel, who is of British-Indian descent, met her husband, financier Pavit Randhawa, after they were introduced by a friend at a bar on the Lower East Side. Romance didn’t spark immediately and they remained close friends for years before they began to date. The two married in Mexico in 2014 and have twin boys.

Brynn Whitfield is a brand marketing and communications professional. A cheeky “trophy wife in training,” Brynn has a penchant for interior design, fashion and hosting dinner parties from her (small but mighty) West Village apartment. Originally from a small town in the Midwest, Brynn was raised by her grandmother who taught her invaluable lessons about navigating life, owning her narrative as a biracial woman and the true meaning of hard work.

Another criticism of the previous seasons of the show was that the cast didn’t appropriately represent the women of the city, so this casting aimed to better reflect the diversity of NYC.

In an exclusive interview with Variety in March, “Real Housewives” executive producer Andy Cohen had said that Bravo was looking for a cast that better reflected New York City. And indeed this one does: Lyons identifies as gay, and Taank will be the first Indian Housewife.

We haven’t seen the last of some of our old RHONY favorites, though, since a RHONY Legacy cast is in the works. And there’s a chance that a slurry Dorinda Medley and a horny Sonja Morgan might be back to “make it nyshe” and “stir the drink.

Variety hears that the legacy version of “Real Housewives of New York City” is essentially fully cast, and deals are in the process of closing. One source says that Dorinda Medley and Sonja Morgan will be part of the cast. 

It looks like UNCAHT JAHM Julia Fox really did decide to sit out being a part of the new cast (despite her claim that she was asked to join and would maybe consider it in the future), so we can all exhale that we won’t be subjected to her low-rise pants with visible pube mound.
