The New York Housewives franchise is in MAJOR turmoil.
According to the DailyMail, the Real Housewives of New York franchise is in serious turmoil as its ratings are plummeting week by week.
As a result, Bravo has informed the cast members that filming for the season 13 reunion has been delayed from August 5 until at least September. They also told the cast that filming for season 14 wouldn’t begin until 2022.
An insider tells DailyMail.com, “All hell is breaking loose behind the scenes at the Real Housewives of New York. While the cameras are down, the drama is continuing.”
The insider continued: “The cast is completely divided, and the women are not getting along with each other. Filming ended with all of the women as friends, but as soon as the show started airing, Eboni K. Williams went to war against her castmates – particularly Ramona and Luann, and the audience is switching off week after week.”
Last week, RHONY had its lowest-rated episode of all time. The episode only earned 764,000 live viewers.
The source continued: “Our viewers don’t want to be lectured to. They want a fun show – tipsy, middle-aged women with money fighting about petty stuff. Yes – let’s talk about the important issues facing our nation – but this cannot be the center of our show. It’s not what our show is, but week after week, scene after scene, everyone is being schooled by a former Fox News host.”
It turns out that Luann de Lesseps doesn’t want to film with Eboni K. Williams out of fear of being dubbed a racist. Ramona Singer is also pissed that one of her co-stars is leaking lies to the press. Meanwhile, Leah McSweeney is furious that fans believe she is the leak.
“The Countess is uncomfortable to film with Eboni as she is concerned that she will be made to look like a racist for speaking up when she felt defamed in her own home,” the source explains. “Ramona is pissed that someone is leaking against her and that false stories are coming out painting her as a nightmare who is about to be fired… Leah is furious that she is being made out to be the leak as she is very close to Eboni and has a good relationship with the rest of the cast. She wants this show to be a success too and wants the leaks to stop.”
The Real Housewives of New York City airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
