Is Ramona Singer planning to quit The Real Housewives of New York City amid reports that she’s refusing to film the new season and stalling on signing her contract? Find out below as a new report is shedding light on her contract issues and revealing which old flame she’s been spending a lot of time with these days.
O.G. New York housewife Ramona still hasn’t signed anything confirming her stay on the hit reality show. After her ex-costar Bethenny Frankel permanently walked away from her sizeable paycheck, the blonde Bravo-lebrity has reportedly made it clear she won’t continue to film until her salary increases.
But according to a source close to the Ageless by Ramona founder, fans shouldn’t be sweating the reality star’s exit just yet.
“[Ramona] knows she’s not going to walk,” the source dished to Hollywood Life. “She feels she really helps make the show and couldn’t care less what the other ladies think.”
Whether Ramona cares or not, how are fellow cast members Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, Dorinda Medley, and Tinsley Mortimer reacting to all this hoopla? “Everyone knows she‘s coming back,” the insider revealed.
The source also divulged that perhaps a familiar face on the show would help convince the 62-year-old to stay.
“Ramona would love to have Jill Zarin return,” the insider said. This is understandable since Jill and Ramona started the show together back in season 1.
The red-headed socialite and Zarin Fabrics owner has appeared on the show very minimally throughout seasons nine, 10, and 11, but she has never officially been asked back to be a housewife.
“It’s looking like Jill will film here and there, but nothing full-time,” the source added.
With or without Jill, Ramona still has plenty to offer viewers given that she’s been living quite the exciting dating life.
“Right now, Ramona isn’t dating anyone serious, but she‘s dating and dating a lot,” the source close to the reality star revealed. However, Ramona has reportedly been spending time with an old flame more and more these days.
“She‘s actually been hanging out a lot with her ex Mario [Singer],” added the insider.
The two were married for 22 years and share a daughter, Avery Singer, 24, together. After Mario allegedly cheated on the Bravo star, the two decided to divorce in 2014. However, after witnessing the couple’s new, budding friendship last season, fans couldn’t help but wonder if the two could work things out.
While Ramona and Mario are “in a really great place,” according to the source, “it wouldn’t surprise anyone to see them get back together, but she considers herself single and dating multiple people. She‘s having fun.”
Season 12 of Real Housewives of New York City is set to air on Bravo TV sometime early next year.
