Ramona Singer To Blame For Countess LuAnn’s Demotion On RHONY?

Ramona Singer & LuAnn de Lesseps

Ramona Singer was a “key player” in having Countess LuAnn de Lesseps demoted from The Real Housewives of New York City. “Ramona has been trying to get Luann off the show for years,” an insider tells RadarOnline. “The two have been at each other’s throats for years. Ramona saw an opportunity to pounce when Luann was in a contract stand-off with Bravo. She pointed out that Luann had no storyline since she and her much younger boyfriend had broken up.”

“In Ramona’s opinion, Luann didn’t bring anything to the show and was only dragging it down,” the production insider dished. “Ramona is now acting like the queen bee on the show!”

LuAnn did not admit to being demoted, instead she claimed, “I just made the decision to step back so I can spend more time doing my things with business and my family.”

“Privately, it’s killing Luann that she won’t be a series regular,” the insider says. “She loved being on the show and wanted to use it as a vehicle to promote her singing career and books.”
