Well, we'll be damned.

Has Bravo angered some Real Housewives??
Better take away their wine, tables, shoes, tiny puppies, anything they can throw!
It seems even though most of the Real Housewives of New York City signed back on for another season, they're none to happy with the shizz that has gone down.
Uh, we've seen these ladiez angry before and it ain't pretty…or quiet!
The Housewives might have gotten a teeny tiny raise, but they're pissed because it isn't nearly enough considering Bravo's demands on their schedules. An insider revealed:
"They are required to shoot for five months out of the year, but that’s just the beginning. They shoot for six days a week, twice a day. The ladies have two shoots a day, one for three to four hours in the morning, and then they have to change clothes and hair and makeup and shoot again in the evening for another three to four hours. It is a full time job to be on the show but they’re only paid for a fraction of the things they’re required to do. They’re furious and are telling people they’re underpaid."
Wait, wait, wait a minute!
If they're reeeally filming all this time then why are we seeing so little of it?!
Seriously, we could be watching new Housewives episodes 5 days a week!
But the big problemo here is not only is the show not paying enough, it's costing them! The insider added:
"Some of the women are complaining that they’re really in the red after everything they have to spend personally to be on the show. They have to pay for flowers in the house, they have to make sure everything is spotless for filming, the kids have to have nice clothes too. It’s a never ending spending spree just to be on the show and the salaries hardly make it worth their while."
Oooh! We see, we see!
So this is why so many Housewives go bankrupt despite making hundreds of thousands on the show!
