It had been looking as if Ramona, LuAnn de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, Aviva Drescher, Carole Radziwill and Heather Thomson, wouldn’t be back. Carole confirmed as recently as May 10 that she was still on the fence about what to do.


As reported, the women were adamant Bravo needed to pony up more cash or they would all walk. In season five, Ramona and Countess LuAnn, who have both been on the show since the beginning, each earned a healthy $500,000, plus bonuses. Sonja pulled in $220,000, Aviva $200,000 and Heather rounded out the bottom at $175,000.

Despite their best efforts, the RHONY cast won’t be making too much more for season six. Deadline reveals everyone will get “modest pay increases” as well as “a few more contractual baubles like covering expenses for additional hair and make-up for the cast.”

But at least fans will get their RHONY fix!
