Page Six has reported the Real Housewives of New York City want more money or are threatening not to return next season.


This is a well-known negotiating tactic used by the Real Housewives.  Kim Zolciak and Nene Leakes did the same thing before returning to the Real Housewives of Atlanta.  Vicki Gunvalson, the longest tenured “Real Housewife” now filming her sixth season of , made more money and had more comps than the other housewives. Jeana Keough expected the same salary hike Vicki received, her request was rejected and she was featured on season 5 for only a couple of episodes.

Truth is, these famewhores will come back for fifty cents.  Remember the original premise of the franchise?  Rich women living in luxury in gated communities that we were all supposed to envy as we watched their extravagant lives unfold in our livingrooms. In the meantime, we have:

Foreclosures and Short Sales:  Tamra Barney, Teresa Giudice, Sheree Whitfield, Lisa Wu Hartwell, Alexis Bellino

Near-foreclosures:  Jeana Keough, Peggy Tanous (the newest Orange County housewife)

Evictions:  Lynne Curtin (three in one year)  Nene Leakes, Michaele Salahi from Oasis Winery

Bankruptcy: Teresa Giudice

Divorces and Near- Divorces:  DeShawn Snow, Tamra Barney, NeNe Leakes, LuAnn de Lesseps, Jeana Keough, Catherine Ommanney,Camille Grammer

Adult Children Behaving Badly:  Bryson Bryant, son of NeNe Leakes, arrested at least twice, Josh Waring, son of Lauri Waring, in jail now.  Ashley Holmes, daughter of Jacqueline Laurita, charged with assault in the weave pulling incident. 

On the other hand, some of them have had great opportunities come their way because of these shows: Bethenny Frankel has turned her stint on the Real Housewives of New York City into a multi-million dollar corporation, selling everything from books, booze to baby must-have items, and the only one with a life interesting enough for a spin-off series.

Some have been allowed to “sing”, and teach us all about the use of auto-tune.  Most have books, with varying degrees of success. Let’s face it, except for the circles they run in, who would have ever heard of these women?  They also need to remember they don’t attract the MTV generation, they are the big spenders. Television is all about the advertising. Some markets don’t even carry Bravo.  Take the money and run, ladies.

    theie all in thw mafia and dont want to admit it look at the life style plezzzzzzzzzzzz and why are they all ways on daniell back??????


    I really enjoyed the first few seasons of all of the Housewives’ shows. But it’s gotten to the point where it’s really just made up drama to keep the franchise going. The only ladies I like are Bethenny & Sonja (NYC), Lisa & Kandi (Atlanta) and Caroline (Jersey). Even though Sonja is new, she seems to be ok so far. Lisa won’t be on ATL anymore, as they’ve asked her to hype up her “storyline” and she refused. Good for her! Love Kandi (she used to be in 90s girl group, so she’s made her money from that). From the looks of it, she’s done well in saving money and not spending it on frivolous things. Caroline seems to be the most genuine and seems to try to stay out of the drama. I guess I have to also like her sister Dina and the fact that she left the show to get away from the drama w/ Danielle.

    I love Bravo, but I think they need to consider wrapping up the Housewives series’ and move on to something else. It’s just getting to be ridiculous.


    They are not Jersey shore entertainment. Snooki and em werk the circuit and everything that comes within two feet of themLOL. They do not deserve a freaking penny more. Teresa Swallow that.


    I have heard of Kandi Burress…yet she’s never mentioned as being the self made millionaire that she is. She just doesn’t flaunt it.


    And Cathy Ommanney had what?? A rented house and nothing else .

    She will end up been a “hostess” again in london. Fueled by alcohol and drugs and for sale to the highest bidder that night . soon the looks will go and the body will show signs of failing… Her daughters will watch their mother turn into a pathetic washed out woman .


    @ Siennarose, I like Bethenny, I just don’t think I can stomach the housewives shows anymore. All the fake drama has just gotten to be too hard to watch. I’ll stick with Bethenny and Jeff Lewis. Flipping Out is great!
    Great news about Alex.


    you need to stick around for season 2 of Bethenny.
    I am sick of Jill, as a matter of fact, I hate her & that Teresa, now she is a PIG from the get go. Her ass is getting so wide, she needs a big house to get through the doors. Just wish something would get going for Alex, Ramona & Sonja. Alex is doing good tho, she just signed a contract for modeling, kudos for her.


    I love that you put the picture of Jill and her fake smile with this. I enjoyed the first couple of seasons of OC, but it’s gotten completely off track from what it was supposed to be. Granted there wasn’t much drama, but it was interesting to me to get a peek at their lives. I liked it when they got along and talked about their kids and went to places I was familiar with (I grew in OC and most of my family is still there). They were women I actually though it would be intersting to know. The made-up drama is so over the top, it’s just ridiculous. I’ve only watched OC and NYC and I think I’m done. It’s just not entertaining anymore. It’s just stupid.
