The Real Housewives of New York are all return to work next week after everyone, including Carole Radziwill, have signed their contracts.
Bravo threatened to axe the show if all the NY housewives didn’t sign agreements for the sixth season by Friday, giving each of the ladies a substantial pay increase. But greedy Carole thinks her presence on TV is worth much more than what she has been offered.
She Tweeted on Friday afternoon, “I still haven’t decided. Payscale is ridix+it irks me to be given ultimatums. Just ask my last 5 boyfriends. :)” Then she asked her friends and fans to weigh in, tweeting, “What about you? Irksome?”
Ramona Singer and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps are now earning a whopping $500,000, Sonja Morgan is getting $350,00 and Aviva Drescher, Heather Thompson and Carole Radziwill have all been offered $150,000 for just 16 weeks of work! – way above the average 2012 median income of US households – which was $45,018 per annum
“Carole thinks she’s better than the rest of the ladies because she married a Kennedy,” one network insider tells Naughty But Nice Rob. “The ladies make more money working part-time for 16 weeks than most people make in a year. Plus, they get all the perks of being on a hit TV show. No-one in the history of the show has been less grateful than Carole. We get it, she thinks she is the Jennifer Aniston of reality TV….but the show’s rating dropped when she came on it. TV has survived without greedy Carole before, and will again”
