There have been numerous reports that the entire cast of The Real Housewives of New York will be fired, after another season of poor ratings. But a new report states that the women have NOT been fired by the network… yet…
“Every year they say people will be fired. They’ll put that out in the news because they always need new girls,” an insider told RadarOnline, insisting that “the cast mates aren’t fired.”
“They’re all not sure to have jobs,” the source reveals, adding that one of the women agreed to film the show for free!
Countess Luann DeLesseps “is not getting paid this season,” the source claimed. “She had to suck it up because they wanted her back, but didn’t want pay her. She just wasn’t bringing it. This year she got fearful so she threw Sonja under the bus.”
The source also claims that Kristen Taekman is on the chopping block. “She says she’s a model,” the source said. “The models I know are old at 24! It’s sad, but true!” Adding, “And she says she’s got a modeling job for a workout video. It’s not a modeling job. [The person who hired her is] doing it to get his product promoted on a hit show.”
And the insider insists that Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan will remain on the show. “When it’s time to do negotiations Ramona and Sonja would be the first to know,” the source claimed. “There is no show without Ramona and Sonja. Sonja is the funny sex pot, and Ramona’s the one who throws glasses.”
However, money is likely to be a sticking point. Says the source, “It always comes down to the money.”
