The Real Housewives of New York may be diversifying its cast after all. Bershan Shaw is rumored to become the new woman to hold an apple on the Bravo series. This comes after newbie Leah McSweeney called for more diversity on the show. There have also been whispers of a huge cast shakeup.
An insider close to production revealed that Bershan has “filmed with some of the cast, but nothing is official yet.” Bershan is a business coach and motivational speaker. According to her official website, she is also a cancer survivor. She already sounds like the perfect match for the show.
A motivational speaker could make history as the first Black woman on RHONY
TMZ was the first to report the rumors on Friday, September 18. Bershan Shaw is a stage 4 breast cancer survivor. It sounds like she could give the fans some much-needed hope and inspiration on a show that’s had its share of wild and drunken moments.
“I am a stage 4 breast cancer thriver and this journey has prepared me to live my best life,” Bershan writes on her website. “I help transform the lives of leaders and business owners to get what they want from their business.”
Bershan could potentially receive an apple since Dorinda Medley announced her departure from the franchise. Last month, she revealed that she was leaving the show after five seasons. However, it was found out that Bravo fired her for her rude behavior. Bershan could be exactly what the show needs.
Fans warn Bershan about Ramona Singer
But what do the fans think? Fan account @realhousewivesfranchise shared the rumor on Instagram. The post features a picture of Bershan alongside Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, and Leah McSweeney. RHONY fans took to the post to share their thoughts. Most of them are worried about Bershan because Ramona could say something offensive.
- “Watch Ramona say something racist by mistake.”
- “Ramona gonna definitely say something ignorant that’s gonna get her Read for Filth.”
- “Ramona’s biggest nightmare.”
- “Daaaaamn Ramona is about to s*** herself more now.”
- “Ramona is gonna be so annoyed but maybe the universe is trying to humble her.”
Other fans want Ramona fired from the show. They want to know why she’s still in the cast photo. However, nothing has been confirmed as of yet. Bravo hasn’t even announced the cast for Season 13.

Who is Bershan Shaw?
Most fans haven’t heard of her this incredible woman. So, clearly they want to know more. Bershan Shaw actually hails from Washington D.C., not New York City. She’s a graduate from Syracuse University, where she majored in Journalism. She also received an M.A. in Journalism from New York University.
Bershan had to work hard to get where she is. She transitioned from a hostess and waitress to an entrepreneur and opening her own bar and restaurant, Haven Lounge. And she’s already been on reality TV. Bershan chronicled her cancer journey on her OWN reality series, Love In the City.
Currently, Bershan works to be a positive force for women. She also has her own podcast, Buckle Up with Bershan. What are your thoughts on Bershan possibly joining Season 13 of RHONY? Sound off below in the comments section.
