It’s the reunion that never happened.

The cast of Real Housewives of New York City never got together to wrap up their season after the network kept pushing back the date — and now we know why.

According to reports from TMZ, the reunion special was put on hold due to an investigation into Eboni K. Williams’ allegations of racism against Ramona Singer.

Williams, 38, reportedly filed a formal complaint, accusing her co-star, 64, of making a comment that she believed was racially charged — although it is unclear what exactly the comment was.

In turn, the cast and crew were prompted to participate in a series of interviews as part of the investigation, per the outlet, which delayed the reunion special. By the time the investigation came to a close, Singer was let off the hook, but it was too late for the reunion at that point.

One source told the outlet that the network felt too much time had passed since the end of Season 13, which didn’t do well in the first place. “It was already a low-rated season so there were concerns about who would tune in 3 months later,” the source explained.

The relationship between Williams and Singer was already complicated before the investigation, as they previously admitted to being on different pages concerning “basic principles of humanity,” which may have had something to do with Williams’ complaint.

While Singer was cleared after the investigation, it was reportedly revealed that Williams wasn’t the first person to take with Singer regarding the same topic, which is why the TV personality felt it was important to speak up and file the complaint.

The outlet also reported that Williams — who was previously adamant that the reunion was going to happen — was bitter about the special getting cancelled.

In August, Williams insisted the reunion was still on the table, saying “I was told a time. I was told that we’re having a reunion. I was told what to wear to said reunion,” although the investigation clearly threw a wrench into those plans.

The cast of RHONY — including Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan and Leah McSweeney — also reportedly missed out on a hefty paycheck due to the reunion special never being filmed.

TMZ reported the special would have most likely been spread out over three episodes, meaning the cancellation potentially cost the major stars more than $100,000.
