"Real Housewives of New York" is getting a facelift -- because three members of the reality show cast have reportedly been handed pink slips for the next season!

Kelly Bensimon, Alex McCord and Jill Zarin all got the boot from the show earlier today, according to The Huffington Post. The women were all called directly this morning -- and were blindsided by the news.

TooFab reached out to Bravo for comment, but they told us "These decision have not been finalized."

With those three gone, that leaves only LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan, but LuAnn recently said three new ladies would be joining the cast.

According to HuffPo, if the three new cast members don't work out the ousted "Housewives" could be "reinstated."

UPDATE: On her Twitter, Alex writes "Speaking for myself only, there is no decision yet whether I'm in or out of #RHONY -Nothing's finalized, though I'd like to do another year."

Jill also tells TooFab "Jill has not been fired from The Real Housewives of New York City. The truth is that Jill is still in discussions with Bravo for season 5 and hasn't made a final decision about returning to the show."

What do you think of the reported shakeup? Will you miss Kelly, Jill and Alex?
