Housewives Unhappy With Bravo!

| Filed under: Reality TV


They're tired of being used by Bravo!

The Real Housewives are fed up with their paychecks, or lack thereof, from the network and they're reportedly fighting back!

A source reveals:

"They are pissed that they only get paid $3,000 to tape each episode and are furious that they get paid nothing to tape the reunion episode. It's two full days of their lives with no lunch breaks and no pay. Everyone on the set is getting a paycheck except the stars. How can that be right?"

Bravo also wanted them to make appearances on The Fashion Show with no pay! The source continues:

"None of the housewives wanted to be on The Fashion Show. However, the network insisted they film all week for hours and hours, and to add insult to injury, they got nothing in return. Not even a thank you."

The Real Housewives of Atlanta
attempted to one up Bravo by saying that WOULDN'T fight with each other on the reunion show. It didn't work in terms of pay for them, but the show was a bore and Bravo changed its mind when it came time for The Real Housewives of New York City reunion.

An insider says:

"I don't think it's a coincidence that the New York ladies showed up to duke it out and then delivered. Tell me Bethenny dragged her ass to the filming days after giving birth for free. No way. Bravo got so much from them. They turned it into a three-episode special and got their highest ratings for the New York series ever. So paying those girls was well worth it."

You gotta pay the stars, Bravo — they're the ones bringing in the money!

    Sounds like bs to me too, but I'm sure it's in their contract somewhere. If not, then they don't need to show up. Simple as that.

    I really do hate these shows! I used to watch Bravo non-stop! Remember when Bravo had ANTM and Project runway and Top Chef? Now they just play re-runs of the housewives and its old and i am ready for this all to die.

    Oh please! If they are that upset then dont do the show and dont show up for the crap your not getting paid to do! If your all so rich as you claim you dont need the money! You wont be missed!

    Starting to get tired of these fake reality shows. Fake Reality is not reality.

    If these housewives had been male stars in some sort of similar show, you can bet that their paychecks would be vastly more in amount — am appalled –such little money surely is demeaning — look how much Jersey Shores actors receive per episode (~ten times Bravo's). Additionally, BRAVO episodes get played repeatedly during the day/night. What if ALL the ladies from ALL of the BRAVO shows went on some sort of strike (which I would hate, frankly, since I'm a major fan of BRAVO … but I would support the ladie's stance).

    These idiots have got to stop letting Bravo and MTV use them like slaves.
    Hire proper agents and get paid.
    It is sad that the retarded monkeys from The Jersey Shore have better negotiating skills than these so called rich housewives.

    You loudmouth, fat, talentless, crossbreed moors can fuck off. You're disgusting subhumans and the fact your even on tv means the end of the world is near you pathetic reptilian whores.

  8. 8

    New Jersey is by FAR the worst of the series. Absolute crap.

  9. 9

    Oh, this gaggle-o-stinky coonts can just go to hell .

  10. 10

    They better pay the Real Housewives of New Jersey cuz they are fabulous!!

  11. 11

    Can someone please tell me who exactly watches these shows? I mean, the ladies are OLD, UGLY and the show has no point. Who cares about these old ladies? Who really watches this drama? Please say "Aye" and let me know what the show is about.

    boo the f hoo!!!do these skanks realize that they are ALL replaceable, stars, that's a laugh

  13. 13

    No one on reality TV is a star. Every one of these talentless skanks can find a replacement in the nearest gutter. I hope they pitch a fit and the show gets shitcanned. Shows about a bunch of fake whiny bitches spending other peoples money shouldn't be popular anyway.

  14. 14

    it does sound like bs they wouldn't go if tey dont get paid. but i like the show there funny!

  15. 15

    these women(fishwives) should be paying Bravo…all they do is sell their products and promote themselves and their"charities"..get rid of all of them

  16. 16

    Lets face it 3 grand an episode is NOT a lot of money for them. I mean hell the cast of Jersey Shore is making way more then that. They bring in huge ratings and they have to do all this press and blog about each episode. It's not worth it, PAY THEM MORE..

  17. 17

    Usually I feel no pity but 3 grand an episode and nothing for the big season reunion? That really is cheap ass of Bravo. I love Bravo & love a couple of the Real Housewives renditions…they do deserve more pay than that. It's made huge money for Bravo, this series.

  18. 18

    Ummm, this is total bs. The New Jersey houswives do make less than the other ones. But they make $30,000 an episode NOT $3,000. PLus, anything they do on the show is paid for. Like Danielle's daughter's sweet sixteen. Bravo is the sponser!! They make plenty. Reunions are in their contracts otherwise none of them would have gone. If you even watch the reunions they always talk about breaking for lunch and taking small breaks. Suck it up New Jersey!
