Is The Real Housewives of New York City going to be down three familiar faces when it returns for season 5 on Bravo?
According to a new Huffington Post report, which cites sources inside Bravo,Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon and Alex McCord have been fired from the show, and were given the news on Thursday morning.
A rep for Zarin tells PEOPLE, “Jill is still in discussions with Bravo for season 5 and no final decisions have been made.”
And Alex McCord later Tweeted, “Speaking for myself only, there is no decision yet whether I’m in or out of #RHONY. Nothing’s finalized, though I’d like to do another year.”
Bensimon’s rep also tells PEOPLE that no immediate casting decisions have been made. A Bravo rep says the same thing, and a source close to the show similarly says that nobody is out just yet.
