Ramona Singer might want to pour herself a glass of Pinot Grigio for this one.
“The only original New York cast member who has never left from day one is Ramona Singer but now her time is up,” a source revealed to the outlet. “Ramona will not be invited back to the next season of the show, which is currently not in production for a couple of reasons. One, she is too expensive. She is the only lady that has been on the show from day one, (Countess Luann was demoted to ‘a friend’ before returning as a full-time cast member) and her salary reflects it.”
The source continued, adding that the show has changed since the first season. “Plus, the basic premise of the show doesn’t work anymore,” the source said. “A bunch of older white women behaving badly was fun a decade ago but not today. The world has changed and if the show wants to survive another decade it must change too and that starts with the cast.”
Singer has been a cast member on “The Real Housewives of New York” since season one.
The Source Also Said That Singer Is ‘Furious’ at the Show’s Changing Direction
According to Radar Online, Singer is allegedly “furious” that the franchise has been making changes. “Ramona is furious that the show is changing,” another source told Radar Online. “She doesn’t understand why her behavior isn’t great TV anymore. After over a decade of being rewarded for saying and doing the things she has done, she does not understand what the problem is.”
After last week’s July 6, 2021 episode, Singer came under fire from fans after she told the new cast member, Eboni K. Williams, that she doesn’t think the star has “suffered.” Singer told Williams during the episode, “But you’re living a great life, I don’t understand… You said you’ve suffered, I said, ‘Looking at you, I don’t think you suffer.'” Williams is the first Black cast member that has starred on the franchise.
