The Real Housewives of New York City is set to begin filming soon; however it looks like some of the housewives are on strike until they see an increase in their salaries! Currently Sonja Morgan, LuAnn de Lesseps and Ramona Singer are holding out on signing their new Real Housewives of New York City contracts until they see a pay raise in the same category as Bethenny Frankel. These three ladies have been on the Real Housewives of New York for years, and it looks like they are striking together until they get a pay raise in the same amount that Bethenny Frankel made last year.
Producers from the Real Housewives of New York City are starting to get frantic about these three ladies because filming was suppose to begin soon, however without contracts Bravo would be missing three top names….something they really can’t afford to lose these days. LuAnn, Ramona, and Sonja are all seeking salaries that range close to the million dollar contract Bethenny Frankel was given last year. If producers end up caving in to their demands, the Real Housewives of New York will have the highest paid housewives in the history of the franchise.
According to our inside sources, if these ladies continue to strike…they just may get replaced. Bethenny Frankel and Andy Cohen have become very close over the past few years and it looks like she is willing to help recast the show if producers can’t get Sonja, LuAnn and Ramona to sign their new contracts. Insiders close to Frankel reveal that she has already been reaching out to her close friends about possibly joining the Real Housewives of New York City.
According to our inside source the ladies from the Real Housewives of New York City make nothing compared to what Bethenny Frankel received last year for her return. The ladies are less than pleased with the fact that producers were willing to give Frankel so much money when she hasn’t been apart of the show for as long as they have. There has been a lot of jealousy and envy towards Bethenny Frankel from the other housewives and it looks like if the dream team does return they will attempt to take the Skinnygirl mogul down!
It looks like Dorinda Medley, Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill have already begun filming for next year’s Real Housewives of New York because they have already signed contracts! While the ladies still have some time to sign their contract before filming starts to increase…. they are sticking together hoping for a raise…. without being able to film the ladies until their contracts are signed producers from RHONY might just end up cutting all three ladies from the show!
