Comedian and Andy Cohen’s assistant Daryn Carp offered her thoughts on why some Real Housewives insist that theay quit the series (but instead they were probably fired). She also shared why this season of The Real Housewives of New York City was a little shorter than what is normally broadcast.
Carp dished about all things Bravo and Real Housewives on the Out in the Wild podcast. She revealed that while most cast members don’t quit the show, it varies on how some of the women cope with their departure.
Why was the latest ‘RHONY’ season so short?
The podcast hosts wondered why the RHONY season was shorter, but Carp shared it depending on the programming. She said viewers see about 80 hours of footage crammed into a one-hour-long show
“Sometimes it just depends on the programming and what else we need to fit in,” Carp shared. “Sometimes it’s just a matter of content for the season. As if we feel we’ve got enough to make 13 episodes the best ever, why stretch it to 17? First of all, it costs more money and we don’t want to upset the fans”.
But one of the podcast hosts reported that a few deleted scenes had come online that would have been extremely memorable if they had been broadcast. Carp says the network definitely has footage they put online for fans to see. But why wasn’t some of the footage that fans might find important not recorded? “Sometimes you get that sentiment, without necessarily having to say that line,” Carp said. She adds that the production has to weed through thousands of necessary lines. “And only a limited 44 minutes with commercial breaks that we can fit in.” Carp adds that the “lost” images also creates a conversation for Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen of scenes that the fans have not seen.
Do they quit (or are they really fired)?
Carp revealed that most cast members don’t stop by themselves. She referred to Carole Radziwill of RHONY. “Her storyline was the marathon. Hey, that’s great. I would never run a marathon. Okay, now what? I think the audience can feel the end of a storyline.
The discussion is about how Radziwill left the show. The podcast host referred to a tweet from Radziwill announcing that she had left the show. “I think sometimes, I can’t say specifically for Carole’s situation, I think you want to get ahead of the rumors that are about to start.” “So if something’s going on, if someone’s spreading a rumor about my girlfriend, maybe I’ll tell my girlfriend about that rumor before it gets to her. Just to make sure I can control the situation as best I can.”
Carp says some Housewives just got back from the public eye for a few months before making any comment. “Or I’m gonna attack it head-on and create a ruckus and press behind whatever I say.” Carp says she thinks Radziwill wants to be ahead of the game.
