Don't believe those reports that the "Real Housewives of New York" premiere was postponed because it was boring. Two of the cast members promise plenty of drama when season four debuts this spring.
Housewife Alex Van Kempen tells Vulture that Bravo held off on running the show because it simply wasn't ready yet.
Usually the series airs two to three months after taping is completed, but that wasn't the case this time around. "We finished filming February 1, we were supposed to premiere February 15," she says. "Do the math: You can't finish a show in two weeks in post."
Van Kempen's husband, Simon, confirms that while everyone got along great this season, a few of the women will be at war. "They know where the buttons are, and those buttons, I think you'll see, get pressed and pushed and prodded several times," he says.
Meanwhile, cast member Countess LuAnn de Lesseps tells Vulture there will be "a lot of drama" when the women travel to Morocco. But regardless of the outcome, de Lesseps will likely end things on a high note: She'll do a duet with an icon but won't confirm reports that the diva in question is Liza Minnelli.
"I can't tell you who the icon is, but she’s major," said the Countess. "But I can't say is it Liza, is it not Liza. It’s somebody like Liza. Or Liza."
