Cast of 'RHONY' in danger of elimination over low ratings

The cast of "The Real Housewives of New York City" better pray that ratings increase drastically for the remaining episodes. As reported by All About The Real Housewives on Friday, June 6, Bravo is disappointed by the show's low ratings and are contemplating doing another cast shake-up for the next season or perhaps even cancelling the show altogether!

According to a source, the show's ratings have dropped again to 1.134 million, which doesn't sound too bad but isn't good enough for the franchise in Bravo's eyes. The network believed that the extra-long hiatus between seasons five and six would build anticipation and interest in the show but that just hasn't happened. Now that "ratings are worse than ever," Bravo executives "are still deciding to whether to let the ship sink, or bring in new girls."

If there is a cast shake-up for the upcoming season, it won't be the first time that it's happened. After season four, there was a major cast shake-up when veterans Jill Zarin, Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon, along with newbie Cindy Barshop, were all let go. Aviva Drescher, Heather Thomson and Carole Radziwil were brought in to replace them. For the current season six, the cast remained the same with the exception of LuAnn de Lesseps, who reduced her role to a "friend of the housewives," and the addition of Kristen Taekman.

If Bravo executives decide to just cancel "The Real Housewives of New York City" altogether, it'll become the second, or possibly third, "Real Housewives" show to be entirely scrapped. "The Real Housewives of D.C." was canceled after just one season. Of course, with the New York City housewives having aired for six seasons already, fans will likely be much more upset over its demise than what happened with the D.C. housewives.

Another group of housewives, those of "The Real Housewives of Miami," are still waiting to hear whether they'll get the chance to film another season. While Alexia Echevarria has said that season four is a go, both Joanna Krupa and Lea Black have said that they have not been told anything about a season four.
