Kennedy Connections, Wall Street and Fashion in the Crosshairs as Three New ‘Real Housewives’ Are Unveiled

Sep 22, 2011  •  Post A Comment

After four women — Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Cindy Barshop and Kelly Bensimon — were dumped by Bravo for a new season of "The Real Housewives of New York City," the network is bringing in three new women to take their place, reports the New York Daily News.

Fashion designer Heather Thomson, philanthropist Aviva Drescher and Carole Radziwill — who has Kennedy family connections — are reportedly joining the show.

Carole Radziwill is the widow of Anthony Radziwill and daughter-in-law of Lee Radziwill — Jackie Kennedy’s sister. Carole was also good friends with Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, John F. Kennedy Jr.’s wife, who died with him in a plane crash.

Drescher’s husband is a big-time securities and investment banker, so she will presumably be the "Wall Street" wife. Thomson runs a clothing line called Yummie Tummie, the story reports.

Bravo has yet to officially announce the new additions.
