The “Real Housewives of NY” attempt at pulling a Friends salary dispute, by all joining forces against Bravo execs failed miserably when Bravo threatened to pull the plug if they didn’t sign the contracts.
The ladies of the Real Housewives of NY all officially signed their contracts today. Ramona Singer, Carole Radziwill, LuAnn de Lesseps, Heather Thomson, Sonja Morgan and Aviva Drescher allegedly took the ‘modest’ pay increases that Bravo was originally offering them for Season 6. The women had all banned together to stand up against Bravo and demand a big raise, but Bravo execs threatened to kick them off the NY version of the Housewives franchise if they didn’t sign – so they all caved.
According to reports, the network did throw in some contractual add-ons like covering the expense of additional hair and make-up for the entire cast.
