RHONY: Heather Thompson Out... Monica Lewinsky In?

Ah, and what's a casual Friday without some Real Housewives of New York news?

So Heather Thompson has decided to leave The Real Housewives family to focus on her life, which hey, do you blame her? She runs a company and the filming does take up a heck of a lot more time. At least, that's what her explanation was to Entertainment Tonight.

So in the case of the Housewive Shuffle, who's next to add to the group?

Dorinda Medley votes Monica Lewinsky... Which shows how much Dorinda knows, because we can't seem to find any record of Monica ever being married...?

Just to make this even more awkward, Lewinsky's name was thrown in, after Dorinda shared on the reunion show that Hilary Clinton is a fan of the Housewives.

Page Six shares, “‘Cause Richard [Medley’s deceased husband] used to work on [Bill Clinton’s ] campaign, so I got a call from one of the people who work on it and they said, ‘You know I just want to tell you that Hillary really enjoys you on the show’ … I didn’t even know what to say.”

Oh! I know, let's put her husband's ex-"I didn't have sexual relations with that woman" on the show!

So, without further adieu, here's some "more likely" candidates that could take up the mantle - if they moved to NYC, of course:

Kelly Monaco

She's been on soap operas for years. And she doesn't take any push from anyone, so she would be feisty.


Tatum O'Neil

Actress, who doesn't do much acting anymore. Perfect!

Elisabetta Canalis


Clooney's former babe. And then she went from Clooney to Steve-O. Don't know how that happened. Now happily married to someone else.


Stacey Keibler

Congrats to the super talented colorist @georgepapanikolas on his big move to @Matrix! I absolutely love my darker hair!

The WWE is a lot like a soap opera. I think she could  take it.


Shannon Elizabeth

If you were on the other side of the dinner table with me tonight, this is what you would see...

The animal rights activist. Former actress. Could totally see her knocking heads with someone, especially if anyone was wearing fur.

Ah, but a pipe dream.
