The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip will return for Season 3 with a brand new all-star cast that includes Real Housewives Of Potomac stars, Gizelle Bryant and Candiace Dillard-Bassett, Real Housewives of Salt Lake City ladies, Heather Gay and Whitney Rose, and Real Housewives of Miami duo, Marysol Patton and Alexia Echevarria.
Radar Online reports that Real Housewives of New York City stars, Leah McSweeney and Tinsley Mortimer, will also be joining the Season 3 cast. The cast members have reportedly been told who will be in the mix as the Bravo stars prepare to gather in a fabulous vacation spot. Bravo Gossip, a Facebook group, claimed over the weekend that the ladies will be jetting to Thailand, but that has yet to be confirmed.
Production is reportedly set to kick off this month, as the ladies pack their bags for a trip that could possibly begin as early as later this week.
Andy Cohen called the current Ultimate Girls Trip cast his “dream cast crossover.”
Season 2 features Real Housewives of Orange County alums, Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge, former Atlanta “Housewives” Phaedra Parks and Eva Marcille, former Beverly Hills stars, Brandi Glanville and Taylor Armstrong, and New York City alums, Jill Zarin and Dorinda Medley.
Leah McSweeney spoke out in May about her chances of being cut from the RHONY cast, amid the announced reboot of the series.
The designer revealed in an interview that she was prepared for the worst as she awaited the network’s decision about her potential return.
“I think I’m not coming back,” she said in May, during an appearance on the “We Should Talk” podcast with Gibson Johns. “It’s just the better way to think about it.”
Leah added—“I mean look, I have to see if they offer me to go back, I have to wait to see who’s on it and which show it is, and whatever … you know I can’t think the what if.”
“I would be like bummed, just because [my] second [season] was just not fun, you know what I mean,” Leah explained. “I mean maybe the show’s not supposed to be fun though I don’t know.”
The once-popular reality show’s ratings nosedived during its most recent season, amid cast conflicts and Covid-19 lockdown issues.
“I wanna have fun on my last season, but yeah I just think, OK, I’m not going back,” the Married to the Mob founder added.
Andy Cohen announced in March that the east coast series would be split into two shows, a recast original and a throwback series based on the lives of an OG cast.
“We’ve spent a lot of time figuring out where to go. And the plan that we’ve come up with, I think, is a real gift to the fans,” the Bravo executive said in an interview with Variety.
Tamra Judge is reportedly in talks to return for RHOC Season 17—without her OG sidekick, Vicki Gunvalson.
Sources told Radar that Tamra is already plotting her return to the show. Alexis Bellino, who was axed after Season 8, has reportedly been contacted about a potential return but has yet to sign a contract. Vicki was reportedly not asked to come back for Season 17.
