Did Ramona Singer Quit ‘RHONY’ Season 12?
Ramona Singer is the last OG of The Real Housewives of New York City and has been on the Bravo series since the first season back in 2008. Ahead of Season 12, Bethenny Frankel quit the show and now Singer has refused to continue filming. Due to her reported abstinence, people are worried she might quit RHONY entirely.
What is the reason behind Ramona Singer refusing to film ‘RHONY’?
Singer has allegedly stopped filming more scenes for the upcoming season of RHONY because she wants more money. After the Skinnygirl founder exited the reality show, Singer wants a bigger chunk of the pie.
“Ramona Singer is refusing to film for RHONY right now as she is hoping to get a bigger bump in salary,” an insider told HollywoodLife. “She feels like she is an OG of the show and now with Bethenny gone, there is more money, so she went back to Bravo asking for more and is unhappy with her initial offers. She knows her worth and is holding her ground.”
The prosecco queen has not signed a contract for Season 12, but is hopeful negotiations will be positive for her.
“She is hopeful this will all get worked out. She loves the show and what it does for her,” the source added. “[Singer] has filmed a few scenes but hasn’t officially signed her contract yet as the ladies can film without signing on if they choose and that’s what Ramona has done. Ramona is living her best life in the Hamptons until this gets worked out.”
Is Ramona Singer on the verge of quitting ‘RHONY’?
Earlier this year there were rumors that Singer was close to being cut from Season 12 of RHONY. What if things don’t turn out well for Singer with Bravo producers? Could Singer end up walking away from the show?
“Ramona would never walk away from RHONY as she absolutely loves doing the show. It’s opened so many doors for her. She honestly feels right now she‘s living her best life,” a source told HollywoodLife. “She feels she really helps make the show and couldn’t care less what the other ladies think.”
This last tidbit has surely made fans sigh of relief as it would be devastating losing Singer right after Frankel.
Ramona Singer upset after Bethenny Frankel exit
Shortly after Frankel announced she was leaving RHONY it was reported that Singer was disappointed.
“Bethenny found love in her life, and it’s so fantastic that she’ll be taking the time to grow that relationship away from the cameras and to explore other business opportunities,” she told People.
Singer did not hold back and expressed her disappointment about Frankel not telling her personally of her decision not to continue as a housewife.
“I’m only disappointed that Bethenny did not inform her costars that she’s not coming back to the show,” the Bravo star added. “When she left in season 4, we found out through the press she was doing her spinoff, Bethenny Getting Married. She was upset we never congratulated her, but we were upset she never told us! And that’s how we feel now. There is a camaraderie among us as a cast. Love us, hate us, not like us — we are a team. To hear this from the press and not through her is upsetting.“
“I really wish her well, though,” Singer continued. “The show’s a machine and it will continue on. We’re all just a cog in the wheel. No one is irreplaceable.”
