Bravo has just aired the Season 11 finale of Real Housewives of New York City, and rumor has it that star Ramona Singer is already trying to shake things up for Season 12. A new report claims that Singer is trying to get rid of Tinsley Mortimer and replace her with her bestie, Sheila Rosenblum.
Apparently, Mortimer is in “survival mode” and desperately trying to save her spot in the cast amid reports that she is on her way out. And, according to AllAboutTheTEA.com, Singer has been trying to convince Rosenblum to replace Mortimer.

“There’s a ‘Housewife’ that’s trying to have her not come back, and thinks she has power within the media to create this media storm,” said a friend of Mortimer’s. “They’re spreading lies. It’s typical ‘Housewife’ drama. Tinsley not coming back — is not true.”
However, another insider says that Bravo execs want a bigger name on the show, and Mortimer is too scripted and simply doesn’t offer a lot to the cast. But, if they want Rosenblum, she comes with her own set of demands.
The former Ford model and ballerina runs a successful all-women horse syndicate and she owns Lady Sheila Stable. If she is going to be part of RHONY, she wants her stable included in her storyline.
Rosenblum would be an incredible addition to the cast. Just like Bethenny Frankel, she is a successful businesswoman who has made millions of dollars thanks to her horses La Verdad and Hot City Girl. She can seriously bring the drama, too, when it comes to her personal life. In 2016, when she was going through a divorce, she demanded that her ex-husband Daniel Rosenblum pay an extra $11 million because he forgot to sign the divorce papers.

RHONY fans shouldn’t get too excited about cast changes just yet, though. Bravo is not even close to casting Season 12, and no one has signed contracts. However, the source says that the rest of the RHONY cast fully supports bringing Rosenblum on board.
Part one of the Real Housewives of New York City Season 11 reunion airs July 11th on Bravo.
