Sonja Morgan has a very exciting new role with Bravo.
Just one day after the season finale of "The Real Housewives of New York City" season six aired on Bravo, word has hit the web that Morgan will be returning to the show for season seven -- as the casting director.
“Sonja is a favorite of the network right now,” a source told Radar Online on July 23, “so executives have been talking about developing a new cast around her. And she’s actively looking and bringing friends in right now.”
Since the series' reunion special begins airing next week, casting will soon begin. Typically, after a season ends, producers like to see how the audience responds to the story lines and cast members. Once the reunion wraps, they begin looking forward, deciding who to keep and who to let go.
According to Radar Online, despite Ramona Singer's current life drama (her husband was involved in a highly-publicized affair earlier this year), the audience isn't too thrilled with her role on the show.
“Ramona is the one most likely on chopping block. There’s not much more they can do to her,” explained the source. “Her storyline is creating a show that reminds the fans of what it is not.”
In addition to that, Singer has refused to share any of the drama going on in her personal life, which feels a bit phony to some viewers of the show. After all, her marriage is a major part of her life, so to see her act as if everything is okay when it is clearly not is a bit frustrating.
“The New York Housewives franchise has lost its feel,” continued the source. “They wanted to keep some nostalgia to the show, which is why they kept Sonja and Ramona. But even with the new cast it’s not fresh and it’s a problem. It’s not working.”
"The Real Housewives of New York City" season six reunion special begins airing next Tuesday night at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
