Now that Jill Zarin, Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon are over like a New York minute, it appears Bravo might’ve already found three new replacements to fill the catty, nerderific, and jellybean void that started to become part of the fabric of the “Real Housewives of New York City.”
So who are these brave East Coast elitists? According to People, they are Carole Radziwill, Heather Thompson and Aviva Drescher.
Carole Radziwill is a former ABC producer and daughter-in-law to Lee Radziwill, who’s most famous for being Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’ younger sister. In 1994 Carole married Lee’s son, but he died of cancer in 1999. She was also close friends with Carolyn Besette-Kennedy, who died with her husband John F. Kennedy Jr. in a plane crash in 1999.

For those of you who try to hide your muffin tops, fashion designer Heather Thompson might ring a bell. The mother of two is the creator of the uber-successful shapewear line, Yummie Tummie. (No comment on what Skweez Couture competitor Jill Z.’s thinking.)
And then there’s “Wall Street wife,” Aviva Drescher, whose husband is Reid Drescher, founder of Spencer Clarke Securities & Investment Banking. According to the New York Daily News, the mother of three has mixed and mingled with the original cast in the past, but we’re not sure if this means she’s been exposed to Ramona Singer’s Turtle Dance.
Bravo has made no official announcements on the ladies.
