What a fucking mess.
Following Bethenny Frankel's shock exit from The Real Housewives of New York City, her former costar Ramona Singer has been refusing to film the hit show until the show's producer give her the respect she deserves and by respect, I mean money.
According to a new report from Hollywood Life, Ramona believes as the last standing OG of the group (Lu was a friend in season six) that she is entitled to a pay rise, especially with Bethenny and her $1.5 million salary out of the mix. The Stinger Singer is apparently waiting for the network to give into her demands, a source told the outlet:
“Ramona Singer is refusing to film for RHONY right now as she is hoping to get a bigger bump in salary. She feels like she is an OG of the show and now with Bethenny gone, there is more money, so she went back to Bravo asking for more and is unhappy with her initial offers. She knows her worth and is holding her ground.”
Although she's currently not filming, Ramona is said to be confident about her chances of having her salary increased, however, after Vicki Gunvalson was demoted nobody at Bravo is safe, especially the OGs. Even though she's hiding away in the Hamptons waiting for Bravo to get back to her, she already did shoot a few scenes for the show before she asked for more money. They continued to explain:
“She is hopeful this will all get worked out. She loves the show and what it does for her. She has filmed a few scenes, but hasn’t officially signed her contract yet as the ladies can film without signing on if they choose and that’s what Ramona has done. Ramona is living her best life in the Hamptons until this gets worked out.”
Give it a week and Ramona will be back filming with the rest of the cast because Bravo won't pay her everything she wants, but they'll probably give her a couple thousand dollars to shut her up.
