There’s some conflicting information floating around about Ramona Singer’s fate on the Real Housewives of New York.
While multiple sources are certain a casting shakeup is coming to Bravo’s New York Housewives franchise, they can’t agree on Ramona’s fate – some say she’s safe while others insist she’s getting fired. Only time will tell what the truth is.
A new report from the DailyMail claims that Ramona “isn’t going anywhere” this comes a day after Radar Online reported that Bravo was planning to fire the OG New York Housewife following a disastrous season.
“Ramona Singer ain’t going anywhere,” the network insider revealed. “This story is complete rubbish.”
“We do not make casting decisions this early in the year; we decide after the reunion episodes have aired,” the source said. “The production company Shed, and the network Bravo really take into account what the fans say online and how they respond to the cast.”
“One Housewife, in particular, has it out for Ramona, and she wants her off the show. This Housewife is leaking to news organizations that Ramona is fired in an attempt to push the network to get rid of her,” the insider continued.
The source added, “Over the coming weeks until the reunion is filmed, there will be “anti-Ramona” stories leaked everywhere as this Housewife attempts to push her off the show. The only problem is, Housewives fans who have stuck with the show this season know what the problem is, and this year it isn’t Ramona Singer.”
Radar Online recently claimed that Ramona was “too expensive” for Bravo to keep on since she’s been a main star on the show since the beginning. The report also claimed that Ramona’s “behavior isn’t great TV anymore.”
However, DailyMail’s source insists that Ramona isn’t getting fired but notes that some New York Housewives should prepare themselves.
“Ramona also isn’t the cast member that should be worried,” a well-placed source quipped. “There is one cast member who producers have found particularly problematic as what viewers are seeing on television isn’t real.”
“Ramona has been the backbone of the show this season, and she’s been a key part of the series since day one. Love her or hate her, she makes great reality television,” the source continued. “We’ve seen her raise her daughter, re-marry Mario, deal with his infidelity, get divorced, and then hunt for a new man. She opens up her home and her life with transparency. That can’t be said about other members of the cast.”
They added, “Just like OC, you can expect a cast shakeup, though. This show can be saved. Look at how great Beverly Hills is now.”
The Real Housewives of New York City airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
