The likely stars of the upcoming “Legacy” Bravo show disagreed.
Former cast members were in talks with the network about a “Legacy” edition.
Negotiations broke down because they wanted more episodes and higher pay.
The likely stars of the upcoming “Legacy” Bravo show ‘Real Housewives of New York‘ disagreed on whether or not to accept a deal that would allow the show to premiere. Additionally, those who were prepared to sign on the dotted line were furious with the holdouts who caused the deal to collapse.
Former cast members Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon, and Dorinda Medley were in talks with the network about a “Legacy” edition that would air concurrently with the “main” “Real Housewives of New York” show, which has been completely rebuilt and the veteran cast members fired.
However, negotiations broke down because the talent insisted on more guaranteed episodes and higher pay for each episode, while Bravo felt that the stars were overvaluing themselves.
Now we learn that the “Housewives” did not reach a consensus on this matter. For instance, sources claim that Bensimon was prepared to sign but that Zarin’s insistence on a sizable payment was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
Zarin reportedly pushed for a tough deal.
We are informed that Medley was also prepared to agree to the conditions and start the filming. And according to insiders, Morgan barely paid attention to the entire situation.
