It was reported that Sonja Morgan, LuAnn de Lesseps, and Ramona Singer have all been holding out for a higher salary and apparently in a new report from PageSix, Bravo has reduced their roles to a “pay for play” system.
â€œThey tried to power play Bravo,â€ said a source. â€œThey tried to hold out for more money, and the network said, â€˜Guess what? Weâ€™re not even going to give you a contract.’ â€
â€œIf they are necessary and it works in the context of their scene,â€ a source close to the Bravo show explained about the situation.Â ApparentlyÂ both de Lesseps and Singer, who are now part-time, have done the pay-by-scene structure before and it actually worked out better for them. A source said the rate per scene is $20,000.
â€œThey actually can make more money on [this] rate,â€ said the insider. Because â€œthey donâ€™t have to work six days a week, and they donâ€™t have to go to events or go on vacations.”
We do know that BethennyÂ Frankel,Â Carole RadziwillÂ andÂ Dorinda MedleyÂ have all signed new contracts and have been seen filming with each other.
De Lesseps rep said she â€œdoesnâ€™t discuss financial issues.â€
