Viewers have been wondering what’s going on with Season 6 of The Real Housewives of New York, and why filming has not begun. There have been cast shake-up rumors and even reports that the show is being cancelled. We have EXCLUSIVE details on the matter, and it turns out the Housewives do not even know what’s going on with the show! A source close to the situation tells me that the women are getting fed up with the producers of RHONY!
My insider reveals that Bravo wanted to start Season 6 by filming the women at a New Year’s Party. When January 1st came and went, production never told the ladies why filming had been cancelled.
My source explains that the women were expecting a filming schedule by early January, and they were told filming would start approximately January 7th. My insider adds that contracts were signed for Season 6 of RHONY in December, and no one in the cast has received the traditional season long filming schedule. The Housewives still have no idea when shooting will begin.
As we reported in December, Aviva Drescher was quoted saying RHONY needs “new producers.”
Purveyors of Pop (current production company) was formed in 2010. Matt Anderson and Nate Green run Purveyors of Pop, and they produce several shows for Bravo. Matt Anderson is the executive producer of RHONY, while Nate Green is the new executive producer of RHONJ. Purveyors produced Seasons 4 & 5 of RHONY. Matt has produced 32 episodes of RHONY from 2009-2011, and that time period is when Bravo started to see a major fall in ratings. So, could Bravo be looking for a new production company? We know network executives have been worried about RHONY’s decline in ratings, which is what led to the biggest cast shake-up in the Franchise!
