LuAnn de Lesseps is counting on Bravo to give in and sign her up for another season of The Real Housewives of New York City with a bigger salary but has exclusively learned that as the lone holdout her negotiations have hit a brick wall because Bravo “isn’t budging.”

As the rest of her cast mates on the hit reality show have started filming, LuAnn was part of the ill-fated mutiny the women were trying to organize and it seems like her tactics may have failed.

“LuAnn wants Bravo to give her more money to be on the show and she’s been digging in her heels insisting that she deserves a pay raise,” a source close to the negotiations told

As the last hold-out from the Big Apple, LuAnn thought she would have some bargaining power, but she’s learning the hard way that she might not have the upper hand in the relationship.

“Bravo isn’t budging about giving LuAnn any more money,” the source said. “They know they have the bargaining power with LuAnn.”

Even though she’s insisted recently that it isn’t about the money, the source said that LuAnn is extremely unhappy with the offer on the table.

“This has been really upsetting to LuAnn because she wants to continue on the show and Bravo just won’t compromise.”

Meanwhile, Ramona Singer, Aviva Drescher and Sonja Morgan managed to ink their deals with the network and have already started to amp up the drama for the next season.
