Bravo Is Reportedly Cutting Costs Across ‘Real Housewives’ Franchises, Axing Lucrative Deals As ‘No One Is Safe’; Source Says: “They Will No Longer Be Giving Huge Contracts To Returning Ladies”

According to a new report, Bravo is axing all of the Housewives’ lucrative deals after letting go of two of the franchise's highly paid cast members, Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge from the Real Housewives of Orange County.

The network is on a major cost-cutting rampage across every franchise — and apparently, no one is safe!

“Bravo has rolled out a new talent agreement which doesn’t guarantee the ladies will be featured in every episode,” an insider told Radar Online.

“No one is safe,” noted the source. “They will no longer be giving huge contracts to the returning ladies.”

The insider insisted this was a clever tactic from the network to amp up the drama for the women from the Real Housewives of Orange County, Atlanta, New York City, New Jersey, and even Beverly Hills franchises.

“The ladies are uneasy about the new contracts and now they know they have to deliver the drama or risk not getting paid,” the source explained.

The insider told revealed that the ladies will now only be paid for the episodes they appear on, not the whole season, adding that RHONJ ladies were the first to get paid per episodes only.

Meanwhile, the rest of the ladies in Beverly Hills will likely be put on a budget too. “Everyone is going to have a negotiation about their money,” the source told Radar Online.
