It seems that there might be much more behind Bravo’s decision to cancel the Real Housewives of New York season 13 reunion.
According to the Real Housewives Franchise on Instagram, there are some theories floating around that Bravo canceled the season 13 reunion to protect OG New York Housewife Ramona Singer.
Many are calling BS on Bravo’s claims that they were forced to cancel the reunion due to “scheduling conflicts,” as the network has previously worked around issues like this by filming reunions via Zoom.
Some are claiming that Bravo canceled the reunion to “protect” Ramona “from public backlash and not have her be held accountable for everything problematic she’s said and done this season.”
By canceling the season 13 reunion, Bravo is hoping Ramona’s actions will “be forgotten.”
If you recall, Ramona was accused of being a bigot after referring to her house staff as “the help.”
This will allow the network to keep Ramona around for future seasons of RHONY and enable her to promote the upcoming ‘Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip’ spin-off show.
On Friday, September 18, Bravo announced they officially canceled the RHONY season 13 reunion.
“Due to scheduling challenges around taping the reunion of The Real Housewives of New York City in a timely manner, Bravo confirmed there will not be a reunion for this season. It’s disappointing to not be able to bring the cast back together, but we are happy to have ended on such a high note with the finale and now shifting our focus to next season,” a Bravo spokesperson said in a statement.
