The Real Housewives of New York City season 13 reunion was reportedly canceled amid an investigation into Ramona Singer‘s potentially racist behavior.

Just over a month after Bravo officially announced there would be no reunion, insiders are revealing that a third-party investigation was launched against Ramona after Eboni K. Williams accused her castmate of racism in a formal complaint filed before the reunion special was supposed to be filmed.

According to an October 29 report from TMZ, Bravo decided to cancel the reunion after the investigation, which included interviews with the cast and production crew, led for the special to be pushed back on a number of occasions.

“It was already a low-rated season so there were concerns about who would tune in [three] months later,” one source explained.

While Eboni reportedly felt that a comment Ramona had made was racially motivated, she was ultimately cleared due to a lack of evidence to support the allegations.

TMZ went on to say that Eboni’s claims against Ramona weren’t the only ones made against the longtime RHONY castmate. In fact, Eboni was led to make her complaint after learning a crew member previously did the same and saw no change in her behavior.

Because the cast was unable to reunite at the end of season 13 for their yearly reunion, which is typically three episodes, they reportedly lost up to $100,000 each.

Earlier this month, tensions between Eboni and the other members of the RHONY cast were reported after Ramona, Luann de Lesseps, and Leah McSweeney allegedly bolted from Dave Quinn‘s book release party due to Eboni’s arrival.

“Luann, Leah and Ramona had a pact [that] as soon as Eboni showed up, they would leave,” an insider told Page Six. “When Eboni entered from the right, they all were on the left and exited.”

“They fled as soon as she walked in,” the source added.

Days later, Leah admitted that while “everything’s ok,” she had not been in touch with Eboni.

“I honestly haven’t talked to her, haven’t seen her, haven’t heard too much from her,” she told Entertainment Tonight.
