The ladiez seemed to have a good plan of sticking together, but something went terribly wrong!
After fighting Bravo for some serious raises, the Real Housewives of New York City ended up folding and signing on for much smaller raises.
So what went wrong if they were all going to fight the good fight together and hold out until EVERYONE got big buckos?
It sounds like Bravo called their bluff!
An insider revealed just how the women apparently crumbled under the fear of possibly fading into reality TV history like Cindy Barshop or Alex McCord:

The new cast of Real Housewives of New York looks intense!!
We're totally gonna miss Kelly Bensimon's on-camera antics… and how will we ever survive without the turbulent friendship of Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin???
BUT, all that being said, let's at least learn about these new queens
that we already guessed a while ago…

As we previously mentioned, Cindy Barshop of the reality show, Real Housewives of New York has a salon where they offer merkins (pubic wigs) made of real fox fur.
There was a lot of backlash over her using real fur for the merkins.
Well now it seems an email campaign through change.org has changed Barshop's mind.
She is now going to get rid of the real fur and only use faux fur.

Cindy Barshop, from The Real Housewives of New York City, owns the Completely Bare salon.
The salon now offers two new spa items: The Foxy Bikini ($225) and The Carnivale Bikini ($195).
And they're not actual bikinis.
They're merkins. Pubic wigs.

This is just getting sad. Time to let it go!
Although Alex McCord and her husband, Simon Van Kempen, were fired from the new season of The Real Housewives of New York City, the pair are apparently so desperate to stay on that they have planned to meet with boss Andy Cohen in a last-ditch attempt to stay on the reality series!
However, Andy has no intention of doing so, but - in probably a pity move - he apparently is willing to play nice and let them know that he'd like for them to make occasional guest appearances on the network!

You could blame it on the ah-ah-ah-alcohol, but in the end, their bitterness ran deep, so we're not surprised at all.
BRAVO cleared house this week as four stars from The Real Housewives of New York City were cut from the show to make room for new blood. To us, the story was particularly interesting because the original housewives aren't saying much about it. Then again, maybe that's because it was one Housewives' mission to make sure the others were taken off the show to begin with!
According to sources, Ramona Singer allegedly played a part in giving Jill Zarin the boot from their show. The story goes that Ramona "came to Bravo with a few pals she thought would make good additions. Bravo decided to go with the new girls and not Jill, so Ramona basically ran her off the show."
However, when pressed about the issue, Ramona swears she had nothing to do with the final decision to have Jill fired, saying:
