When music industry mogul L.A. Reid sat down with Andy Cohen on his Sirius XM show, Andy Cohen Live, on Monday, the twosome didn't hold back when it came time to spilling the tea. During their conversation, it was revealed that L.A.'s wife, Erica, was almost one of the Real Housewives. "We have a secret about Erica Reid," Andy said. "What's the secret? What almost happened? Erica Reid was almost a Real Housewife of New York. It was my fantasy."

Erica was nearly brought into the New York crew by Bethenny Frankel. But, it would seem that L.A. played some part in assuring that his better half didn't have her life documented in front of the cameras. "She's friends with Bethenny. I talked to Erica many times. Bethenny spoke to her. I mean this was going to be a big... we were very excited about this. Maybe it'll still happen. I think you [L.A.] may have [squashed it] too. I kind of know you did. But I love Erica and I was very excited about the notion of that [she would be on the show], which ultimately didn't wind up happening."
