What would Jackie O. think of her niece-in-law becoming one of the Real Housewives of New York City?
Bravo has announced that for Season 5, which premieres with a 90-minute episode on June 4 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer will welcome Aviva Drescher, Heather Thomson and Carole Radziwill.
Radziwill was a longtime journalist with ABC News before leaving in 2003 to write What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship and Love, a moving account of her life and marriage to fellow ABC News producer Anthony Radziwill, the only son of Lee Bouvier (younger sister of Jacqueline Kennedy). He died of cancer in 1999. She lives in the West Village with Margaret, her dog.
And what does Fran Drescher think of her cousin, Aviva, joining the show? In December, she said she wasn't really on board with the idea. "I would never [do a reality show]. ... I don't like them. It appeals to the lowest common denominator."
