The RHONY newbie — who made her debut last season — shocked fans when she accused her co-stars of "blackballing" her from appearing on the show next season.

Eboni claimed she was willing to come to a mutual understanding of what the show should look like going forward, but Ramona, Luann, and Leah McSweeney were "unwilling to come to the table and meet me even halfway in that negotiation."

She alleged that's why Bravo was forced to create a spin-off; however, we're told the trio doesn't have the power to veto someone from their group.

"They can't pull the diva card with the network," our source stated, adding that casting "is up to production and the network." is told Ramona is confused by Eboni's allegations. As far as Singer knew, she was on good terms with Eboni after deciding to "clear the air" and "move forward" following a disastrous season.
