We all know Ramona Singer loves wearing designer duds especially when she doesn’t have to pay for them. Remember when she swiped that Herve Leger bandage dress from Bethenny Frankel‘s talk show? The $500 or more dress mysteriously went missing, with Ramona citing she lost it, only to shockingly show up on Ramona’s daughter months later.
Well, it turns out that Ramona’s has quite the history of scamming when it comes to designer outfits.
The Real Housewives of New York star is accused of “routinely” having her assistant bill Bravo for high-end designer clothing only to have the items returned for a refund, a new lawsuit reveals.
Ramona “asked [Lisa] Taubes to purchase designer clothes for the filming of Ms. Singer’s show, and instructed plaintiff to submit receipts to Bravo cable Network for reimbursement,” the court documents reveal. Ramona “then asked Ms. Taubes to return the clothes for refund.”
Adding, that Ramona, “also instructed Plaintiff [to] submit fake receipts for reimbursement on clothes that she already owned and demanded plaintiff carry out these tasks.”
No word on how much Ramona made off the scam but I’m sure it isn’t chump change.
The lawsuit comes from an agency called T360, that provided her with an assistant, who was initially hired to be paid $4000 a month for up to 20 hours of work.
However, Ramona demanded her assistant, Lisa Taubes, work 40 or more hours without any additional compensation.
Lisa was even forced to walk Ramona’s dog “outside the scope of the agreement” and was expected to be on call 24/7.
The lawsuit against Ramona is seeking $150,000 in damages and says that Ramona “eventually” humiliated Taubes by firing her in the lobby of her building.
Ramona also attempted to force Taubes to sign a non-disclosure agreement and when she refused Ramona pushed her causing her purse and its contents to go everywhere.
As for now, Ramona denies the claims and the lawsuit telling Page Six,“I have no knowledge of any lawsuit. Her company did some work for my company. The relationship ended, and her company was paid in full for their services.”
Bravo is yet to comment on the allegations against Ramona. But it sounds to me that somebody could be in BIG trouble.
I’m not surprised at all by these allegations against Ramona. I mean she stole Bethenny’s dress then pretended to lose it. Is Ramona that cheap? I’m curious if these claims could affect Ramona’s standing with Bravo.
Thoughts on the allegations against Ramona? Do you believe Ramona scammed Bravo? Is this lawsuit legit? Sound off below!
