The drama continues for the Real Housewives' franchise and its stars. Last month, the suicide of Beverly Hills Housewives' husband Russell Armstrong made headlines, along with speculation about how Bravo would handle the upcoming season. In the news this week-- 4 New York Housewives have gotten the axe. Bravo announced Saturday that Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Cindy Barshop, and Kelly Bensimon will not be returning for season 5 of the hit show. Perhaps the strangest RH buzz was the "kidnapping" of DC Housewife Michaele Salahi.
