Most of the NYC Housewives are holding out for six figures and aren’t singing their contracts for next season. The only one who has signed on without negotiation is Kelly Bensimon–who is actually the one person that I could do without.
A source told the NY Daily News: “The Housewives all want six-figure deals…They barely made 10 grand for the first season, and now are all a bit too big for their britches. They want the whole shebang: a clothing allowance, money for hair and makeup, a set raise and a promised amount of screen time.”
I think their demands are a bit too much for reality stars, but then again, if they all hold out Bravo can’t recast the whole show! It just wouldn’t be the same. Rumors have it that Bravo is in fact looking to re-cast, but I think they’re just saying that to scare the Housewives into signing their contracts.
In any case, I like the Atlanta and New Jersey franchise over way over the NYC one these days.
