Bravo is remaining mum on the reports that three of the Real Housewives of New York City are set to be fired, but a source tells PEOPLE that only Ramona Singer, LuAnn de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan are close to signing their 5th season contracts.

Alleged pink-slip recipients Jill Zarin, Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon, meanwhile, are chiming in on social media.

Zarin – who told PEOPLE last month, "I don't know if I can film with these girls," after feuding with fellow cast member Ramona Singer – Tweeted Friday: "I plan on discussing my future in my next newsletter. Sign up jillzarin.com. I love you for caring so much."

McCord, who was involved in a public dust-up with costar Sonja Morgan at a Marriage Equality event last season, addressed rumors of her departure on her Facebook and Twitter pages, saying "Nothing's finalized, though I'd like to do another year."

Bensimon also has had similarly strained relationships with her costars. During a tirade in the Virgin Islands last season, she accused them of "systematic bullying." She has not commented publicly on the possible casting changes.

Are any of the women worth keeping, or is it time to have a Big Apple change up?
