The Real Housewives Of New York City Resumes Filming For Season 13 After COVID-19 Scare, No Cast Members Tested Positive Despite Reports!

Despite a report claiming that production on the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New York City was shut down after a cast member allegedly tested positive for COVID-19, a source reports that none of the women contracted the viral illness, according to PEOPLE.

"A Housewife never tested positive for coronavirus," a source close to production told the publication.

A crew member did test positive, causing filming to be partially suspended. The women are tested multiple times a week and have all regularly received negative results. Filming has since resumed.

Meanwhile, another source claims that the cast, which includes Leah McSweeney, Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, and newcomer Eboni K. Williams, were all filming together Thursday at American Beech in Greenport, NY. 

Page Six reports that the cast was also shooting at nearby Croteaux Vineyards, where Singer and McSweeney were loudly fighting over McSweeney’s recent tweets in which she criticized Singer for being careless about COVID.

The cast was supposed to be filming out East in early October, but it got pushed back and has only just got underway. The outlet claims that the delay has created problems because producers had been hoping to make it appear as if the Hamptons scenes happened during the summer, which is difficult now that they’re shooting well into October.

The news comes after the filming of the new season of RHONY was shut down for two weeks when a cast member tested positive for COVID-19, according to a report by The Daily Mail.

Production on season 13 was put on hold two weeks ago when it was discovered that one of the women was allegedly sick. A production insider revealed to that the women, who are regularly tested and monitored for coronavirus, were due to film together when the cast member was exposed. 

A production source reports that "all of the women are now healthy and COVID-19 negative."

"They are filming this weekend at Ramona Singer's home in Southampton," the source told The Daily Mail.

The insider went on to explain that Bravo takes the health and safety of all the cast and crew very seriously. "Production goes to great lengths to keep everyone safe, so as soon as the diagnosis was revealed, filming immediately stopped."
