The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills isn't the only show in the Bravo franchise experiencing drama.
Reports hit the Internet Thursday that The Real Housewives of New York's cast is seeing major shake-ups.
The Huffington Post reports that original cast members Jill Zarin and Alex McCord were notified Thursday that they had been fired from the show. Kelly Bensimon, who joined the show in its second season, has also been let go.
In addition, Us Weekly reports that Cindy Barshop has been fired. She became a cast member in the 2010 season -- the show's fourth.
That leaves LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan for Season 5.
Lesseps told New York Live on Wednesday that three new cast members were being added to the show.
According to HuffPo, Zarin, Bensimon and McCord might be invited back to the show if the new cast members don't work out.
Will you watch The Real Housewives of New York without Kelly, Alex and Jill?
