The Real Housewives series of reality shows remain one of the most popular and recognizable in the history of television. They have spanned multiple iterations in various states in the US. Now it seems a former The Real Housewives star has criticized one of its iterations.
Former The Real Housewives Of New York star Heather Thomson did not seem to have the best of times during her run on the show, judging by her recent comments about the show’s quality.
While speaking to Page Six, the former Housewives Of New York star let fans know about the behind-the-scenes aspects of the show. She criticized the storylines for being forced and contrived and lacking authenticity.
“The authenticity is missing. The women were self-producing, and many storylines were forced and contrived. Fake storylines with a ring that was pulled off of somebody’s finger two seconds before. Borrowed to make this fake engagement.”
Heather Thomson also talked about the experience when she made her return to the show in the 13th season, stating that there was absolutely no camaraderie compared to the first time she joined the show.
“There was some [camaraderie] when I [first joined the cast],” Thomson told the outlet. “And when I came back … there was no camaraderie. It was …. everybody out for themselves. I only filmed for one weekend. It was at Ramona’s house in the Hamptons. They put me in the basement. I was by myself and I was ambushed … They held me in the car for two hours while the other women got dressed and ready for the party.”
Thomson was a cast member of “The Real Housewives of New York” during seasons 5-7, and made a second debut for a few episodes during season 13. It is safe to say she never wants to come back to the show either from the looks of it.
