The “Singer-Stinger” stings no extra.
The Actual Housewives of New York Metropolis OG, Ramona Singer, has confirmed her departure from the franchise after a formidable 13 seasons of showing as a solid common on the present.
Ramona’s iconic malapropisms and outrageous conduct have grow to be one thing of RHONY canon, however all good issues should come to an finish.
“I don’t need to do the present any longer,” the longest-running solid member advised Web page Six on Friday. It’s not for me at the moment.”
Earlier this 12 months, Bravo introduced that the RHONY franchise could be rebooted with an all-new solid and create a second sister present tentatively titled, “RHONY: Legacy” that includes previous housewives.
Insiders say that Bravo was open to having Ramona return to the community, however because of her latest trashing of the “Legacy” present, executives reneged on the thought sensing an excessive amount of animosity on Ramona’s half.
“I’ve been there a very long time,” Ramona boasted on the Actuality with the King podcast. “However I additionally really feel just like the ‘Legacy’ [show], how might or not it’s actually good? The folks they’re gonna deliver again are the folks they didn’t need to renew in any case.”
Ramona went on to name the revamp a “loser present.”
“So now what? Are you gonna name it ‘The Loser Present,’ the ‘Loser Legacy’?” the pinot grigio lover shaded.
A supply near Bravo indicated that Ramona’s criticism wasn’t the only purpose for her not being provided a contract, nevertheless it didn’t assist her scenario.
“I don’t assume that was the defining second,” the supply advised the outlet, “However she does appear to place her foot in her mouth rather a lot.”
So, now that we all know Ramona is out, the query is, who’s in?
In keeping with Web page Six, a “short-list” has been narrowed down, and it’s crammed with some oldies and goodies.
Though contracts have but to be signed, Bravo has actively been in talks and has their sights set on Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon, Dorinda Medley, Luann de Lesseps, and Sonja Morgan. There are additionally one or two extra spots which have but to be confirmed.
This potential solid has all of the makings for some traditional RHONY shenanigans. Jill was an OG (and not too long ago referred to as the “thirstiest” housewife) who had notorious fights, notably with Bethenny Frankel, and was by no means afraid to deliver the drama.
And the way might we overlook Kelly? “Scary Island” anybody? The previous mannequin left the present after season 4 and has since grow to be a wildly profitable actual property dealer.
Luann and Sonja are two peas in a pod, getting ready to seem in their very own spin-off present, Welcome to Crappie Lake set to premiere in 2023. We’ll see how that enterprise impacts the twosome’s dynamic.
Controversial fan-favorite, Dorinda, who was indefinitely “placed on pause” in 2020 after a horrible season of combating with nearly her whole solid, is thought for her sharp tongue. Her traditional one-liners are legendary. Plus, she and Jill had a battle over Dorinda’s ingesting habits throughout season two of RHUGT. If she makes the minimize, she’ll not be “Not nicely, bitch!”
Bravo has but to formally touch upon Ramona’s departure or the “Legacy” short-list.
