It’s no secret that the Real Housewives of New York franchise is in serious turmoil as its ratings are plummeting week by week.
Ratings for the New York Housewives franchise have reached an all-time low, with the most recent episode only earning 764,000 live viewers.
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.
“All hell is breaking loose behind the scenes,” a source recently revealed to the DailyMail.com.“The cast is completely divided, and the women are not getting along with each other.”
This all came to light after a report from Radar Online claimed that OG Housewife Ramona Singer was getting kicked to the curb.
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.”
The source added, “Just like OC, you can expect a cast shakeup, though. This show can be saved. Look at how great Beverly Hills is now.”
All of this got us thinking about casting for season 14 of RHONY. We decided to do some polls on our Instagram Story to see which New York Housewives fans want back for another season of drama.
The results of our polls were quite interesting. Fans all agree that RHONY needs a major casting shakeup. They also agree that they aren’t enjoying this season of the show at all.
As for which Housewives they want to go and which they want to stay, that’s a whole another story. Take a look at the results to see for yourself.
Meanwhile, fans are divided on whether or not they think Bravo is planning to fire Ramona.
The Real Housewives of New York City airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
