Posted By on January 6, 2023

Shes out quicker than a New York minute.

Lizzy Savetsky has quit the Real Housewives of New York City reboot before the new season has even wrapped, Page Six can exclusively confirm.

Multiple sources tell us the social media influencer, who is Jewish, received a wave of anti-Semitic comments when she was announced as a cast member.

As soon as she was announced, she was getting insane threats and anti-Semitism on social media, a source familiar with the show tells us.

Another insider adds that Savetsky, 36, was scared.

A third source confirms, She experienced hate from fans for being pro-Israel.

A Bravo spokesperson further confirmed the news to Page Six, saying, After thoughtful consideration and discussion with Lizzy, we have reached the mutual conclusion that Lizzy will not be a cast member on RHONY.'

Following the speculations, Savetsky also confirmed the news on social media with an Instagram post.

I will not be continuing on the Real Housewives of NYC. As a proud orthodox Jewish woman, I thought participating in this series would be a great chance to represent people like me and share my experience, she wrote on Wednesday.

Unfortunately, from the time of my announcement in the cast, I was on the receiving end of a torrent of antisemitic attacks. As this continued, I realized that this path was no longer right for me and my family.

Savetsky ended the note that she was looking forward to my next chapter.

The rising reality star states on her Instagram bio that she is a proud Jew and Zionist, and has been vocal about her religious and political views on social media.

In early October, Savetsky made a video, slamming Kanye Wests racist remarks and noted in the caption, I continue to receive shockingly hateful, even threatening comments in support of his antisemitic message.

My childrens great grandmother didnt survive Auschwitz so we could sit idly by as people threaten our existence as a people. We have to speak up! I take these threats very seriously and you should too.

Savetsky was also heavily criticized on social media for editing a Vogue cover of Bella Hadid, who has expressed pro-Palestinian views, to mock the model.

The mom of three wrote over the Photoshopped cover, Bella Hadid graces this months Vogue cover wearing design by John I love Hitler Galliano.

The fake cover further read, Gigi Hadid exploits Ukrainians in crisis to promote anti-Israel agenda which Vogue then echoes.

One critic wrote of Savetskys post on Twitter, This is disgusting to post. Its targeted bullying & dangerous rhetoric no one can disagree with Lizzys Zionist views.

Bravo introduced the new cast of The Real Housewives of New York City Season 14 at BravoCon 2022.

Aside from Savetsky, the cast includes creative director Sai De Silva, model and philanthropist Ubah Hassan, home renovation guru Erin Dana Lichy, former J.Crew presidentJenna Lyons, fashion publicist and brand consultant Jessel Taank, and brand marketing and communications professional Brynn Whitfield.
