All of the women of the Real Housewives of New York City are back for Season 11 — except Carole Radziwill — and they have begun filming just days after Season 10 came to an end. According to a new report, Bethenny Frankel, Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, Tinsley Mortimer, Dorinda Medley, and LuAnn de Lesseps have all signed on for the new season, and the cameras have already started to roll.
After years of friendship, Frankel and Radziwill ended Season 10 as enemies, and they went after each other during the reunion. The Skinnygirl mogul told her former bestie that she had no work ethic and needed to get her life together. Frankel also suggested that Radziwill get a hobby, as well as a career.

It seems that Radziwill took Frankel’s advice. She announced in July that she was leaving the show after six seasons to pursue other projects, and to get back to her original career in journalism. Radziwill added that she was over reality television and was ready to do work that suited her “more steady temperament.” She also seemed to throw a bit of shade at Frankel by saying that she was thrilled to leave her frenemies behind.
As for the rumor that lawyer Barbara Kavovit would be joining the cast full-time for Season 11, Radar Online is reporting that isn’t true.
“She will be on as a friend since they’re testing her, but she is not a full-time housewife,” revealed an insider.
Kavovit has appeared on previous episode of RHONY, but as she told Radziwill, she filed a lawsuit to stop the show from airing.
The drama last season got incredibly serious, and viewers watched as Radziwill and Frankel’s friendship crumbled before their eyes. But now that Radziwill is gone, fans are wondering who Frankel will clash with next season.

She actually had issues with pretty much everyone except for de Lesseps during Season 10, and the women ganged up on Frankel at the reunion. So, will she get a new pal when they replace Carole Radziwill — possibly Jill Zarin?
Zarin has said that she would not consider coming back full-time, but she would possibly return as a friend of the show.
RHONY fans will just have to wait and see who the producers add to the cast (if anyone), and it will be a few months before we see new episodes since new seasons of Real Housewives of New York City usually premiere in the spring.
