'The Real Housewives of New York City' cast reportedly end holdout, sign sixth-season contracts

By Reality TV World staff, 05/12/2013 

The Real Housewives of New York City's contract dispute has reportedly ended.

The Real Housewives of New York City stars Aviva Drescher, Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson, LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, and Sonja Morgan all reportedly signed their contracts for the Bravo reality series' sixth season, Deadline Hollywood reported.

The cast had reportedly united and delayed the start of production on the reality show's sixth season last week in an attempt to secure salary raises, however Bravo had allegedly threatened to re-cast the show if the women did not end their holdout and agree to new contracts by Friday.

In the end, the women reportedly "took the modest pay increases Bravo was offering" and the network "threw in a few more contractual baubles like covering expenses for additional hair and make-up," according to Deadline.

Radziwill had publicly voiced her displeasure -- and ongoing indecision -- about her contract situation on Twitter on Friday evening.

"I still haven't decided. Payscale is ridix + it irks me to be given ultimatums.Just ask my last 5 boyfriends," she tweeted.

Earlier this month, OK! Weekly reported Singer and DeLesseps -- the reality show's two remaining original cast members -- each allegedly earn $500,000 a season plus bonuses, while Morgan receives $220,000, Drescher $200,000, and Thomson $175,000. Radziwill was not included in OK!'s alleged salary information.
