This blind item was initially told to me about one Bravo housewife. I was told this housewife really didn’t want to be on the show anymore. That is until she had something that she desperately wanted to promote on the show. She certainly didn’t need the money, so she renegotiated her contract to include guaranteed promotional consideration and scenes of her at work. She agreed to a much lower salary than her counterparts in exchange for the publicity. Production wasn’t that keen on her, but they needed a bone carrier between two warring factions and she agreed to take on that role.
Then, much later I was told that another member of the same cast agreed to similar a similar deal. That housewife actually needs the money, according to the streets, but she thought the promotional consideration was too good of a deal to pass up because the business they are promoting matches well with the viewership. She too was assigned a specific job on the show. She wasn’t counting on all of the skeletons that are currently falling out of her closet.
