Bravo reportedly had learned that "not all press is good press".

However, in a statement to Pop Eater, Bravo's spokesman said, "We've had no discussions about a season two - including any casting - and won't until the freshman season concludes. Any speculation to the contrary would be absolutely premature. And let's face it, it wouldn't be a proper 'Real Housewives' franchise without the drama of casting rumors."

I'm not a huge gambler personally but the adrenaline of it can draw anybody in so you've got to be careful. I'm still drawn to those neon lights."

Ryan Reynolds Interested in 'Deadpool' and 'R.I.P.D.', but Cannot Do Both

September 22, 2010 03:23:48 GMT


Ryan Reynolds could not be a superhero and an undead cop at the same time. The actor, who is attached to star in "Deadpool" and "R.I.P.D.", has revealed that he probably will have to choose between the two. "I think it would be more likely that only one of them gets made with me," he tells io9 when asked which one he will do earlier.

Reynolds will likely get a problem to take a pick since he is interested in both "Deadpool" and "R.I.P.D." "They're both movies I'm interested in, they're both movies that are in fast-track development. But I never say I'm doing a movie until I break for lunch the first day. Because it's such a crapshoot, this industry. Everything's so fickle and so contingent on so many factors, aside from just an actor," he explains. "And because it has an actor, and because these films have interested directors, it's obviously likely that they'll both get made."
