Earlier this week, we reported that The Precise Housewives of New York Metropolis‘s “Legacy” spinoff is lifeless.
A minimal of, for now.
Sooner than Bravo formally rescinded the present to these “Legacy” Housewives, negotiations had stalled.
We now have further particulars. Within the meantime, the RHONY alums themselves are apparently blaming each other.
Internet web page Six tales that, comparatively than negotiating collectively, RHONY “Legacy” solid members have been in separate talks with Bravo.
That’s normally how networks need points. Whatever the pay grade, employees have further leverage when bargaining collectively.
This meant that among the many Housewives have been in a position to sign the deal. And others weren’t ready merely however.
Naturally, due to this the solid members who’ve been ready to simply settle for Bravo’s present are none too joyful.
Now, they actually really feel as if the holdouts have merely swept out the rug from beneath them.
Had all of them been working collectively to barter as a workers, perhaps they may have supplied one voice to Bravo. It might have been a win-win.
So, Bravo had been negotiating with Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon, and Dorinda Medley.
(Keep in mind, Ramona Singer had bowed out … which was, frankly, for the perfect)
The proposed “Legacy” model would have confirmed these all stars whereas the model new RHONY strikes forward with a model new, refreshing solid.
So, what did the holdouts want? With out realizing the small print, it’s laborious to say within the occasion that they’ve been being low cost or not.
Nevertheless they reportedly wished additional cash per episode and a guarantee of additional episodes per season.
(Promising X sum of cash per episode doesn’t amount to so much if the neighborhood benches you for half of the season)
Apparently, Bravo felt that the Housewives have been grossly overestimating how so much value they may carry to the current.
Nevertheless not basically all of them.
Kelly Bensimon was allegedly able to sign. Within the meantime, Jill Zarin reportedly pushed for a big payday and left Bravo throwing up its collective arms.
Within the meantime, Dorinda Medley appeared in a position to sign on.
And Sonja Morgan, by all accounts, appeared detached from all of it.
Nonetheless, there’s some trigger to question whether or not or not Internet web page Six‘s report is totally appropriate. A minimal of, that’s what Andy Cohen wants people to imagine.
The timing of Andy’s tweet is totally unambiguous. Even with out the “RHONYLegacy” hashtag.
It seems like he’s suggesting that this report is pretend.
Nevertheless apart from Andy’s tweet, we’ve acquired no indications that Internet web page Six is in any method inaccurate.
