Now that most of the stars of Real Housewives of New York City have inked their contracts for a new season, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that a warning to all of the ladies has been sent out by the network: deliver some major drama or else!
“The Bravo execs and the production company told the women that they’re going to have to really bring some crazy antics to the show.
“They would love there to be table tossing like on the New Jersey Housewives, but if not then they definitely need to change what they’re doing now.”
The intense contract negotiations for the women finally ended after several of them bowed down to Bravo’s pressure and accepted the small pay raises they were offered — but there were strings attached.
"All of the ladies know the ratings for their show were low and that they have to bring out their wild sides this time,” the source said.
"They need to stop pretending they’re above the fighting because it is the fighting that viewers want to see. Also, they have to stop acting like they’re not on a reality show," the source said.
"Everyone expects them to do ridiculous things and something has to be done differently to draw viewers and fans in.”
The source also said that the women haven’t really made a name for themselves outside of the Housewives franchise.
"But these women have smaller projects they do that don’t really translate into any sort of publicity for them or the show.”
On Monday, a spokesperson for Bravo confirmed the show will be back for Season 6 saying, "The Real Housewives of New York City will return on Bravo for season six. At this point, the returning cast members include Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Carole Radziwill and Heather Thomson."
At this time, RHONYC cast members LuAnn de Lesseps and Aviva Drescher have not yet signed, although that could change at any moment.
