Entire 'Real Housewives of New York' cast returning

de LessepsAnd then there were none.

The last remaining holdout from the cast of Bravo's hit series The Real Housewives of New York City is back in the fold, as LuAnn de Lesseps has signed a new contract to return to the program. As production is currently underway, she will be returning immediately and should appear prominently in the upcoming season.

de Lesseps and Aviva Drescher were the remaining two holdouts after all six cast members walked off the show earlier this month in a salary dispute. Drescher returned to the fold next week and producers had indicated that they would not wait much longer for de Lesseps. However, many see de Lesseps as "the star" of the show and it always seemed likely she would get back in the game. 

Sonja Morgan, Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson and Ramona Singer (who has been there since the beginning of the series) all returned to work after a week off with the contract holdout. 

The latest rumor from negotiations was that de Lesseps and Drescher were going to see reduced screen time if they returned. Now that they have, however, I find it hard to believe that Bravo will stick to their guns on that.

This will be the sixth season of the show. Bravo had discussed recasting the entire series at one point.
