Real Housewives of New York has been undergoing a casting shakeup. Jill Zarian recently teased that she could be joining the cast of RHONY. Another name that has been floating around is Candace Bushnell.

The rumors about Bushnell make sense. An online blind item recently stirred the gossip pot even more when word got out that the Sex and the City author would be one of two or three new cast members. No one would be more appropriate for the role.

Candace Bushnell herself recently put an end to the rumors. Candace appeared on “Behind the Velvet Rope.” The topic of Bushnell joining the cast was brought up. It doesn’t sound like the gig is a good fit.

“I mean, it looks like such a fun thing to do, doesn’t it? You go on a trip, of course you have to ride around in those damn buses all the time. Like, OK, it’s a glamorous bus, but it’s still a frickin bus, but you know, you go on private planes and you go on vacations, you stay in places.

First of all, when I went to Ramona [Singer’s] house, I got into trouble. I got yelled at by the producers because they said I was breaking the fourth wall. It’s like, OK, I didn’t know there was a fourth wall in TV, but OK, we’re good. But you, you know, there are tons and tons of producers.

Plus I really don’t like yelling at people or conflict. That I can’t do. And you know, I know Ramona. I’ve known Ramona since the eighties and I’ve known Sonja [Morgan] since the nineties. So you know, I don’t want to be getting into fights with Ramona. I’m just not going to do that.”

There you have it. If Candace isn’t interested in conflict, she definitely wants no part of Real Housewives of New York. Bushnell would rather leave the drama to the other ladies.
