A source tells Us Weekly, “Bravo is casting the show around Heather Thomson and Kristen Taekman and Carole Radziwill.”
The source gives the following reason, “[When] Ramona carried the show, that is why ratings plummeted, they think.” Producers also felt that Ramona was no longer worth her $600,000 paycheck as a main cast member.
Previously, it was reported that Ramona ended her marriage to Mario Singer. Mario had been cheating with his mistress and lying to Ramona about his commitment to their marriage. As such, Ramona moved on too.
Sources claim, Ramona will appear on the Millionaire Matchmaker.
“After carefully considering the offer personally from Patti Stanger, Ramona has agreed to appear on Millionaire Matchmaker,” says a source. “She hasn’t been set up on a blind date in over twenty-five years, and is very nervous, but excited. Viewers are going to see a different side of Ramona now that she has finally decided to ditch cheating husband Mario.”
“At first, Ramona was absolutely not going to do it, but her friends talked her into it,” adds the source. However, “Fellow New York housewife, Sonja Morgan has already filmed for the upcoming season, and advised Ramona to do it because it was so much fun! She said it would be a great confidence booster for Ramona to have a bunch of men vying for her attention at one of Patti’s infamous mixers.”
The insider continues, “It’s a great way to get herself out there and just have fun. She isn’t looking for anything serious right now.”
