We may be seeing a whole new battle of the brunettes v. the blondes on the upcoming season four of ‘RHONY?’ Are you ready for their claws to come out?

It’s a new season and a whole new set of drama. With former star Bethenny Frankel out of the picture, the gals of The Real Housewives of New York City are welcoming a new cast member, Cindy Barshop, into their inner circle … only, “not all of them” have been nice, Cindy tells exclusively!

“I’ll tell you who did want to help me were my friends Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon,” Cindy admitted at Jill’s Skweez Couture Fall 2011 preview in NYC on Feb. 15. “Countess LuAnn de Lesseps was very sweet.”

But Cindy would not go into further detail about the new divisions. Could it be a whole new battle of the brunettes versus the blondes, just like last season? Are Cindy, Jill, Kelly and the Countess going to be up against Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan and Alex McCord?

“Ramona originally introduced Cindy to the group with high accolades,” Sonja tells us. “She said that we were going to love her and that she was a great girl.”

“Then we all went to Morocco together,” Sonja continues. “Cindy and I were dying to spend some time together outside of the drama. We had a great time.”

But after the trip did the dynamics of the group take a turn for the worse?

“The rest you’ll have to watch on the show,” Sonja smiles.

Wow! Maybe Cindy will be filling Bethenny’s shoes after all for this eagerly awaited new season?

“[For] people who have never seen The Real Housewives of New York City, it’s fantastic,” Housewives head-honcho Andy Cohen bragged to us at STYLE360’s Boy Meets Girl Fashion Show.

PLEASE !!!! STOP calling Luann de Lesseps ‘countess’! She’s what, the 4th ex-wife of the old ‘count’. It is not a legitimate title, at best, it’s a ‘courtesy’ title. I have yet to see her, her ‘count’ or their ‘titles’ in any book of peerage. Finally, this is the US! The only titles we use are Mr, Mrs, Dr, and the like!

Nah, the only way Cindy can fill Beth’s shoes would be to analyze & admit Kelly & Jill are narcissistic CRAZIES!! Jill had a facelift, botox treatments & is going through a mid-life crisis. Her attempt to dress-like-a-young-Madonna is pathetic! Desperately trying to one-up-Bethenney…sorry loser, ain’t gonna happen.

NO ONE CARES. Ramona Singer is a crazy bitch. Her hubby should find someone else.

As Simon says: it was the blondes vs. the brunettes.
