What drama? Ramona Singer appeared to have no cares in the world as the fate of The Real Housewives of New York City — and her role in the series — hangs in the balance.
The reality star took to her Instagram Story on Monday, August 16, to gush over her luxurious stay in Aspen with daughter Avery. Aside from showing off the beautiful flowers she was surrounded by while in town, Singer reposted Avery's story of the mother-daughter duo at dinner eating truffle gnocchi.
The 64-year-old also shared a video of herself sitting at a bar drinking "the best espresso martini" she's ever had. Singer went on to share the secret to bartender Will's recipe. After the mixologist — who the blonde beauty called "baby" — made several martinis, he poured a small amount for himself, as Singer insisted the two "have a toast together."
Singer's wild night out comes after OK! learned she may be getting the axe from the beloved series. Despite being on the show since day one, an OK! insider said her "time is up," explaining the reality star is "too expensive" and her role on the show "doesn't work anymore."
"A bunch of older white women behaving badly was fun a decade ago but not today,” the TV source candidly said of the series that premiered in March 2008. “The world has changed and if the show wants to survive another decade, it must change too and that starts with the cast."
Meanwhile, her recent refusal to take part in the reunion special — which was scheduled for the first week of August — definitely didn't help her case to stay on the series. The special was "canceled" and the ladies haven't been given the new date for taping, said the source.
“Andy [Cohen] is freaking out, and there is even talk of legal action as Ramona is in breach of contract," the insider revealed of Singer pulling out of the taping. (Singer later attempted to smooth things over with Cohen by appearing on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on Tuesday, August 3.)
Singer reportedly refused to appear on the special because she is "sick of all the race talk," as she "knows she’s going to be destroyed at the reunion and isn’t willing to go through with it if she’s already out," the source explained.
The incident that caused conversations about race resulted from Singer telling the series' first Black star, Eboni K. Williams, that she doesn’t understand how she can talk about “suffering" given the "great life" she has.
The ratings for RHONY have reportedly hit "an all-time low," the source said of season 13.
At this point, it's been reported that "there is no date to start filming season 14 on the books and talk about putting the show on permanent hiatus.”
Despite claims that Singer didn’t take the news of her pending doom well — the insider said she "is furious that the show is changing. She doesn’t understand why her behavior isn’t great TV anymore" — it looks like she made her peace with her future, thanks to the help of her bartender pal and his espresso martinis.
