Anthony Scaramucci’s wife, Deidre, is being courted to join the cast of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” sources exclusively told Page Six.
A source said: “Scaramucci’s wife is doing the ‘Housewives.’ They’ve been wanting new blood and have been striking out with new cast members. She’s been meeting with Bravo.” Another insider added of Deidre: “It’s reality-TV gold. I’d love to have her on.”
We hear that the move may be part of a larger potential shake-up at the show, with Tinsley Mortimer being given the heave-ho, while Luann de Lesseps wants a salary bump.
The Scaramuccis certainly seem ripe for reality TV.
In 2017, Deidre filed for divorce from Anthony when she was nine months pregnant over his ill-fated role as White House communications director — before eventually standing by her man.
The Mooch himself dabbled in reality TV this year, when he appeared on “Celebrity Big Brother,” and we’re told Deidre has his full support if she makes the “Housewives” cut.
Meanwhile, a source said of Mortimer, who was cast in 2016 but hasn’t made much of an impact: “No one knows her and it’s like starting all over every season . . . How many seasons can they sit around talking about her dating or not dating [sometimes-boyfriend] Scott [Kluth]?”
We hear that show newbie Barbara Kavovit may also be getting the boot. “She’s out. She didn’t become a part of the ensemble,” the insider said.
As for de Lesseps, the first source said, “She wants to double her salary, but . . . her storyline is getting old.”
And “she does think she’s more. She has that cabaret [act].”
Now sober, de Lesseps is on probation after being arrested in Florida on Christmas Eve 2017.
She’s told Page Six, “I remain committed to doing whatever it takes to continue living a healthy sober lifestyle.”
The show’s currently airing its 11th season. Reps for Bravo and Deidre did not comment.
