After nearly recasting the entire lineup of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” the entire cast is now signed for the upcoming sixth season.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that the last holdout of a salary dispute, Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, has finally signed a contract and will rejoin production immediately. The news comes days after Aviva Drescher (who was also holding out) signed a deal to come back for her second season on the show.

Of course, Sonja Morgan, Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson and Ramona Singer had previously held out in a united standoff against Bravo, but ultimately rejoined the series after threats of a total revamp of the show were made.

A source told the publication that de Lesseps will now be in a less-prominent role on the reality series.

Production on the sixth season is now under way in New York City.
