Real Housewives Of New York News 2014: Is LuAnn De Lesseps Getting Her Own Spinoff Show? [VIDEO]
She might have been demoted as a part-time housewife on Real Housewives of New York, but it looks like LuAnn de Lesseps might be getting her own spinoff show after all. Rumor has it that Lesseps has been receiving a lot of offers on several different networks to star on her own show.
According to gossip blog Naughty by Nice Rob, Lesseps is no longer under contract with Bravo and other networks have been vying to get her signed on with a new reality show. So far, she's received a lot of offers to do her own Martha Stewart-type lifestyle show. However, insiders close to the reality television star might hope that Bravo will sign her back on full-time as the Real Housewives of New York have seen their ratings plummet this season.
Meanwhile, rumor has it that the rest of the cast of the Real Housewives of New York might be getting pink slipped after this season, too. A source reveals that the only two people that will be saved on the show are Ramona Singer and Aviva Drescher.
"Ramona will most likely be offered a contract to come back," a source told Radar Online. "And Aviva Drescher could be offered a much smaller role, of series guest star. The rest of the cast is expected to get pink slips."
As far as the low ratings for this season, Bravo doesn't want to cancel the series all together and instead wants to revamp it with new Housewives and plotlines for the upcoming season.
"Bravo doesn't want to cancel the series because New York is the unofficial capital of the United States," an insider told Radar Online. "The amount of wealth concentrated into such a small area makes it a major draw."
As far as the new cast, the insider adds that they will be "over-the-top," wealthy and "very charismatic" with multiple estates.
