Life can get pretty rough when there’s only one Real Housewives airing at a time. Here’s a little something to hold you over:
New York Negotiations
Last week, we reported that all six cast members of The Real Housewives of New York City were in a stand-off with Bravo to have their pay increased before signing contracts for a sixth season. Now according to the Huffington Post, four of the ladies, Ramona Singer, Carole Radziwill, Sonja Morgan and Heather Thomson, have all signed contracts. Aviva Drescher and the Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, however, have yet to make anything official.
“Well, my name is always on the list, darling,” LuAnn told the Huffington Post. “But they have to make me happy. It’s been a journey. I’ve been there from the beginning. I’ve been the driving force behind RHONYC with my castmates. I hope it’s going to work out. I really do. I love the show and I hope to be back so hang in there and keep rooting for me.”

Bad News for NeNe
It’s a good thing NeNe Leakes didn’t decide to ditch The Real Housewives of Atlanta last season after she got an acting gig. Her NBC comedy The New Normal has been cancelled after just one season.
“I worked with some of the most amazing people ever on The New Normal. I love you all! We will meet again,” she tweeted this week in response to the bad news.
But don’t worry, you’ll still get plenty of NeNe action on her upcoming Bravo spin-off, I Dream of NeNe.
Mark your calendars: Bravo will air The Real Housewives of Orange County: 100th Episode Special on Monday, June 24. According to the Bravo press release, the special will be a two-hour documentary-type show that “explores the Housewives phenomenon and how it has impacted the lives of the women and their families who have been featured on the show.”
Not only will the current cast of the show be featured, but previous housewives such as Jo de la Rosa, Jeana Keough, Lynne Curtain, Lauri Peterson and Tammy Knickerbocker have filmed interviews, as well as members of their families that were portrayed on the show. And of course, it wouldn’t be a Bravo special without a cameo by Andy Cohen.
