Real Drama On “Real Housewives Of New York City”?: Is there a feud brewing in the Big Apple between the new cast members (who Bravo has yet to announce) of “RHONYC” and the returning stars LuAnn de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer? According to The Huffington Post’s Rob Shuter, three of the original stars went on strike while filming. “LuAnn [de Lesseps], Sonja [Morgan] and Ramona [Singer] refused to shoot any scenes at Fashion Week in February, complaining that production was dragging on well past the date that was agreed upon, so they went on strike,” an original star of the Bravo series claimed. Another Bravo insider warned the new stars will be serving of fierceness in the new season. “In the end, the ladies that didn’t make themselves available to shoot only hurt themselves, as it means the new girls will get extra airtime. What I can guarantee you is that if Ramona thinks she is going to win by messing with the new ladies, she can think again. These girls are killers,” the source told HuffPo.
