Fans of The Real Housewives of New York City can now be assured that a new season of the Bravo docu-drama is underway. That's in spite of rumors of a contract dispute, which has made its way to the public and allegedly delayed production of the third season.
As reported before, all five of the show's original women remain unsigned for the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New York City because they are reportedly holding out for six-figure deals. Now, it looks like they already got their wish, according to lifeanstylemag.com.
"The ladies wanted more money, and they're getting it," the source told Life and Style. "Bravo was happy to up their pay since the show makes more money now. The housewives just had an issue with some of the wording in the contract."
Although behind-the-scenes negotiations went smoothly, fans of The Real Housewives of New York City may be in for some big changes next season. Bravo is looking for some Manhattan ladies to join the show, stirring some fans to question whether or not some of the original cast members are leaving.
Bethenny Frankel remains tightlipped about the controversy surrounding her allegedly fake engagement to Jason Hoppy, Hoppy's fake occupation as a licensed broker, and the possible lawsuit she might face if she continues with her new series, which rings a bell to HBO's Sex and the City, though she has already declared she's coming back for season 3.
While the identities of the new additions remain a mystery, one thing's for sure when The Real Housewives of New York City returns next season: the claws are coming out again!
