'Real Housewives of New York' Cast Shake-Up? Alex McCord Responds to New Report

Real Housewives of NYCIt was reunion time for Bravo's 'The Real Housewives of New York' last Wednesday at Capital in NYC. As usual, it was full of tears, laughter and betrayal but nothing was as interesting as one 'Real Housewife' talking about the show in the past tense.

"Cindy [Barshop] barely spoke at the taping," a cast member told PopEater' Rob Shuter, "And when she did talk about her time on the show it was in the past tense. She is definitely not coming back."

Also buzzing around today is a new report by HollywoodLife that in addition to Cindy, original housewife Alex McCord will also not be around for a fifth season, but in an exclusive statement to PopEater, Alex rebuffs such claims.

"If I had a dollar every time an 'inside source,' i.e. a cast member, leaked a 'story' that I was out of RHONY, I'd be a multi-millionairess!" Alex wrote to Shuter.

A spokesperson for Bravo released a statement, telling Shuter "No decisions have been made regarding next season and everything at this point is rumor."

The tradition of the 'Real Housewives' coming together at the end of each season to tape a reunion show has delivered HUGE ratings for Bravo. So much so that these tapings are often edited into at least two hours of TV and have recently even provided footage for a third.

"They started taping at 9:00AM and didn't finish until well past 7," an insider told PopEater. "The first few hours where everyone is on message is always thrown away and replaced by the more juicy stuff that occurs later in the day when everyone's getting tired and letting down their guard. This year Ramona and Jill go at it."

After the taping, Ramona tweeted that it had been a wild day and that she "survived the reunion." The next day Alex McCord agreed, tweeting, "Intense day of filming yesterday for Real Housewives of New York." However, Jill Zarin, surprisingly seemed to have a great time, sharing, "OMG what a day," late Wednesday night.

Two Housewives that were noticeably silent were Sonja Morgan, who is battling an ugly bankruptcy case, and the newest housewife member Cindy Barshop.

"Sonja's struggles with her divorce and financial situation are just too delicious for Bravo to not invite her back," one insider tells me. "But it looks like Cindy already knows her Real Housewife days are over."

Do not care for Cindy at all. Saw nothing about her that I ever want to see again. Don't like Kelly at all, and she is nuts. Jill is a hater and backstabber and Lou Ann is just, what can I say. Don't care if I ever see them again.

Why does Alex always stick her nose where it doesn't belong? Is she really stupid or is she just pretending to be this dumb? Also, why is her ugly husband on this show? What is he adding to it? Was it an arranged marriage? I can't imagine anyone marrying this guy voluntarily unless it's for his money! I mean really!

Out of all the Housewives of NYC, I hope that Alex doesn't come back! That would be a positive. She and her husband need to go.....seriously.
