The time has come for the Real Housewives of New York to begin filming their highly anticipated 10th season and according to a new report, Bravo has sent out contracts to the cast!
So who will be returning next year? We can now reveal that to you!
According to Radar Online, contacts were sent out to the RHONY ladies “late last week.”
And apparently Bravo was so happy with the ratings last season that they decided to invite all the ladies back including Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Tinsley Mortimer, Dorinda Medley, LuAnn de Lesseps and Carole Radziwill.
However one housewife was in danger of losing her job due to her lack of a story-line last season.
“They have all been invited back including Ramona Singer,” revealed an insider. “Ramona had no story line and Bravo had been auditioning new ladies to replace her.”
“It was decided that the last season ratings were strong and fan reaction was positive, so they didn’t have to fix something that wasn’t broken,” continued the insider. “Other franchises changing the cast has often backfired and fans don’t want to start over in a new TV relationship with a new lady.”
Bravo is however playing hardball with the ladies and isn’t interested in doing any negotiating for a pay raise! Ouch.
“The ladies have all been told these contracts are non negotiable — no one is getting a pay raise and if they try to play hardball they will be replaced with the backup ladies,” added the source.
Must say it’s smart of Bravo to offer all the ladies a contract as last season of RHONY was the best season they’ve had in a while, so if it isn’t broke, there’s no need to fix it.
