If you thought flashing moneybags and behaving like spoiled middle school students to the glee of thousands of adoring fans was the key to eternal wealth, have we got news for you.
Despite making millions for the network, the women of Bravo’s ratings juggernaut docu-soap The Real Housewives (now in five cities, including Washington, DC) are fed up with the paltry pittances they’ve been receiving from the network in exchange for their work in the reality franchise.
And they’re reportedly ready to fight back. Could a legal battle be looming?
A network spy tells PopEater’s Naughty or Nice Column: “They are pissed that they only get paid $3,000 to tape each episode and are furious that they get paid nothing to tape the reunion episode. It’s two full days of their lives with no lunch breaks and no pay. Everyone on the set is getting a paycheck except the stars. How can that be right?”
