And then there was one.
The cast of The Real Housewives of New York City decided to hold out for more money on the eve of the program's sixth season. Slowly they have worked their way back into Bravo's good graces and signed new deals (for pay raises, of course). There were two holdouts refusing to budge from their demands, but that number was cut in half after it was revealed that Aviv Drescher was coming back to the fold. Her move leaves Countess LuAnn de Lesseps as the lone homemaker on the outside.
Rumor is that if she does not come to terms soon, she might be dumped permanently. Already her rumored role has been cut back, as production is already underway. Maybe she thinks she is marketable outside the program?
Now that Drescher is back, the decision for how her return will be handled is not known yet. A source close to the program says that she will likely see less screen time than before.
Sonja Morgan, Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson and Ramona Singer all signed their new deals on May 9 after a week of striking.
de Lesseps and Singer are the only two original cast members remaining on the program since it started. You would think they would realize how easy they are to replace.
You would think.
