Following Bravo’s announcement that they fired Jennie Nguyen from the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, some fans urged the network to fire Real Housewives of New York OG Ramona Singer next.
Jennie was fired from RHOSLC after her offensive 2020 Facebook posts surfaced online. Her posts covered a range of controversial topics, including promoting “white lives matter” while condemning George Floyd and Black Lives Matter protests.

Less than a week later, Bravo announced on Instagram that they “ceased filming” with Jennie and that she “would no longer be a cast member on ‘The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.’”
In the comments section of Bravo’s post, fans called for the network also to fire Ramona Singer.
“Do Ramona next,” one fan commented. Another fan said, “Then Ramona needs to go.”
A third fan added, “Let’s get Ramona next.”
Meanwhile, on Twitter, some Bravo insiders noted that there’s no way the network can bring Ramona back when RHONY returns for season 14 in 2023.
“I just don’t see Ramona returning to #RHONY. They are recasting and rebooting. I don’t see her fitting into that. I would guess she’s already gone; maybe she just doesn’t know it yet,” Love Andy C tweeted.
Danny Pellegrino replied, “I agree. I think they just won’t renew her contract for next season whenever they move forward (which might not be for a while).”
Other insiders questioned Bravo’s inconsistent treatment when it comes to the bad behavior of its stars.
“Why is it acceptable for women on Bravo to say racist things while filming, but when it’s brought to light on their social media, it’s wrong?” All Over Anthony tweeted. “A major problem with Bravo is the lack of transparency w/ fans. Why is one housewife fired for racism while another stays on for a decade and joins a spin-off? Brandi Redmond’s videos brought back. Even w/ physical assault. Porsha stayed and thrived, Monique fired. It’s weird.”
He continued, “I think it’s important to note that Bravo fired Jennie after the ratings came out, and they plummeted. If they were steady or went up, I wonder if we’d have the same outcome.”
Dave Quinn shared similar sentiments, “Is the logic that you can say racist things while you’re on the show, but you can’t say racist things while you’re off the show?”
“I just wish there was some consistency. Making racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic, transphobic, and/or other bigoted statements is wrong — period, full stop. So why do some people get to keep their jobs after doing just that?” he went on.
