LuAnn de Lesseps had been engaged in a heated standoff with producers of The Real Housewives of New York for weeks until finally signing on to the show earlier this week. While some sources claimed afterwards that LuAnn actually hadn’t yet signed on, she gave fans a very big hint that she has earlier today.
This morning, May 31, LuAnn posted a photo of herself and Aviva on her Facebook page. “Fun night with Bonnie Fuller Naughty But Nice Rob Shuter Aviva Drescher at the VH1 Launch of “The Gossip Show” at Catch @ Meatpacking NYC,” she wrote along with the picture. “Watch it every morning at 9 am!”
Since filming on season 6 of the show began just days ago, the photo seems to clarify that LuAnn is, in fact, filming along with the rest of the cast. Plus, why else would she be hanging with Aviva?
LuAnn and Bravo have stayed mum regarding her contract but according to The Hollywood Reporter, she has signed on for a much lesser role and Aviva’s role has been reduced as well.
When the sixth season announcement was made, the only people confirmed by Bravo were Ramona Singer, Heather Thomson, Carole Radziwill, and Sonja Morgan.
