First of all, I have been saying this for months! The ladies of Real Housewives of New York have been filming for such a long time. Since September to be exact, and the original ladies are not happy about it.
At this point, they aren't giving Bravo any material to work with, because they are on strike! An original cast member told Naughty But Nice Rob, "“LuAnn [de Lesseps], Sonja [Morgan] and Ramona [Singer] refused to shoot any scenes at Fashion Week in February, complaining that production was dragging on well past the date that was agreed upon, so they went on strike." The cast member (who I bet was Jill Zarin) continued, “Ultimately, they did return to tape a final few scenes, but it’s not fair that they should have to give up their time, with no extra pay, just so the slower new girls can learn how to tape a TV show."
“They might call it a strike, but the network sees it more as a little disagreement,” claims a Bravo insider. “In the end, the ladies that didn’t make themselves available to shoot only hurt themselves, as it means the new girls will get extra airtime. What I can guarantee you is that if Ramona thinks she is going to win by messing with the new ladies, she can think again. These girls are killers.”
