Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York franchise is turning into one hell of a shit show.
While previously reported that Bravo had pushed the RHONY season 13 reunion from early August to September, it seems the network has been forced to push filming back even further.
According to Radar Online, producers asked Bravo to postpone the reunion yet again as they attempt to fix the dying franchise.
Sources close to production tell Radar, the tentative September reunion taping has been pushed back even further as ratings for the franchise continue to decline each week.
At the time of the initial reunion postponement, a source told the DailyMail “All hell is breaking loose behind the scenes” and “while the cameras are down, the drama is continuing.”
Now, sources say the future of the NY Housewives franchise is out of Bravo and Andy Cohen’s hands and has been turned over to NBC executives.
Sources say the show has “become an embarrassment and the fear is the New York could destroy the rest of the franchise and maybe even NBC.”
There is also talk of the franchise going on a long hiatus the network can figure out what to do. Production for season 14 was set to being at the beginning of 2022 but that plan has been scrapped for now.
No season 14 start date has been given to the cast. Insiders note that the women are worried that a delay in production means they won’t be getting a Bravo paycheck for a while.
Ramona originally threw a monkey wrench in the reunion plans when she threatened to be a no-show over her concerns that Eboni K. Williams would try and paint her as a racist.
