Last night’s Real Housewives of New York seemed to really emphasize that these franchises may have a limited lifespan. Anyone who has been watching these past two seasons of RHONY, or the past few seasons of Beverly Hills, Orange County, Miami, or even DC has probably noticed it too.
On the heels of one of the tamest Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ever, Bravo debuted Season 6 of New York. Conspicuously absent: Countess Luann de Lesseps. In her place is Kristen something or other, whose job it is to look aghast whenever somebody raises their voice, chew out people for daring to make her wait, and wear obnoxious cocktail rings.
