Bravo is bringing back Ladies of London for Season 2 with some alarming cast changes and new twists. Most of the Ladies from last season will return, but there are two big exits that are making news, and one due to the fallout of the suicide of a former Ladies of London star.
According to People Magazine, returning will be Juliet Angus, Marissa Hermer, Annabelle Neilson, and Caroline Stanbury. Ladies of London will welcome Caroline Fleming, former host of Denmark’s Next Top Model and ex-wife of James Bond creator Ian Fleming’s nephew, and American Julie Montagu, aka Lady Hinchingbrooke, the former yoga instructor who made appearances last season.

Ladies of London Season 1 cast members Caprice Bourret and Noelle Reno have “severed all ties” with the show, according to the Daily Mail. Caprice Bourret has had her two boys since the end of the last season, one via surrogate and one naturally, and has her hands full with new babies and her successful lingerie business.
The Daily Mail is reporting that Noelle Reno won’t be returning as she is still in mourning after the suicide of fiancé Scot Young.
“Reno’s departure comes a few months after her tycoon fiancé Scot Young plunged to his death from their $4.7 million (£3million) home and impaled himself on the railings below.”
The former Ladies of London star reported that the couple broke up shortly before Young’s death, and it was thought at the time that drugs were involved. A coroner’s inquest confirmed that Young was taking prescription and illicit drugs at the time of his death.
In the U.K., the subject is still very much in the news, according to the Daily Mail, as Young’s ex-wife is in talks to make a movie of Young’s life, business dealings, and prison time.

Ladies of London Season 2 should provide more of the friendship and conflict between the reserved English and the newly arrived Americans abroad.
