'The Real Housewives of NYC': Season 6 salary dispute nearly over, conversations with cast moving toward deal

It seems the ladies of The Real Housewives of New York City are nearly back in business with cable network Bravo after a salary dispute that threatened to shut down the show as it heads into its sixth season.

Bravo won’t confirm that the deals are done, but sources told EW that the six-member cast — Ramona Singer, Carole Radziwill, LuAnn de Lesseps, Heather Thomson, Sonja Morgan, and Aviva Drescher — will likely sign a deal soon and “conversations are moving in that direction.” Us Weekly is reporting the women have “agreed to return for a sixth season,” while Deadline is reporting that they have signed their contracts.

Few details are available yet, but it’s likely the housewives received pay increases. Early reports from the negotiations hinted that Bravo would possibly more forward on the show without some — or all — of the castmembers, if a deal could not be worked out. The cast was set to begin production on the show’s sixth season last week, but they didn’t show up as a negotiation tactic.
