Ramona Singer Suffers Huge Fallout From N-Word Controversy
November 2, 2023
Ramona Singer is currently in the middle of a scandal, which has reportedly forced her exit from Bravo’s upcoming convention and her real estate job.
The reality TV star, who starred in the first 13 seasons of “Real Housewives of New York City,” which ran from 2006-2021, allegedly made unacceptable racist remarks during filming for the canceled season 13 reunion.
Ramona Singer’s Real Estate Job Drop The Hammer On Her
According to sources, the 66-year-old was fired from the real estate firm on Tuesday following a controversial expose on Bravo — the network that oversees the production and airing of “Real Housewives.”
Singer allegedly used the N-word in an exchange with a crew member on Season 13’s production set, which led to the victim filing a complaint at the show’s parent companies Shed Media, Warner Bros, Discovery, Bravo, and NBCUniversal.
At first, Singer denied ever using the racial slur at that time, as the results from the internal investigation carried out in the wake of the allegation were declared “inconclusive.”
On the television personality’s journey with Douglas Elliman, the star announced her employment with the company in November 2021, and they even sealed the deal by creating an ad for her.
The company revealed that Singer “brings deep sales and marketing experience, fearless entrepreneurial instincts, and a singular sense of style to the Elliman family.” However, all that is in the past now, as the media outlet disclosed that a link to her profile on the company’s site now shows “Page Not Found.”
Back in 2021, the reality star was reportedly studying for her real estate exam as she earlier expressed her interest in the business in November 2020 and had used the Elliman company to sell her Upper East Side apartment in 2018.
Other “Real Housewives” stars at Elliman include Kelly Bensimon, who is now a top broker since joining in 2019, and Erin Lichy, who was already an agent when she joined the show in Season 14.
It’s certainly a canceled season for the star as Bravo has removed her from their upcoming fan convention.
Singer was originally slated to appear at the annual convention for Bravo followers that will be held in Las Vegas this weekend for the first time after making New York its home for the last two years.
The mom of one was initially set to appear in a panel for the new season of Peacock’s Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip, which drops in December alongside her “RHONY” co-stars.
Per Vanity Fair, Singer and her daughter Avery Singer also planned to promote their brand BachBoss in a booth at the venue of the convention, but that will not be happening anymore.
The Real Estate Agent Left ‘RHONY’ Last Year
Before this controversy broke out, Singer bowed out of the reality show last year, which was also the 13th season, and confirmed to news outlets that she would not appear in the forthcoming seasons.
The star reportedly disclosed that she did not like the show anymore, and it was not what she wanted to do at that time. Prior to her decision, the show’s network, Bravo, had planned to introduce a new dimension to “RHONY” by bringing in popular members from past seasons and fan favorites.
Singer was enlisted among the cast alongside Sonja Morgan, Dorinda Medley, Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon, and Luann de Lesseps. However, the plans were scrapped as soon as the network began hearing how Singer truly felt about the show and her bad remarks about “RHONY” to the public.
Singer appeared on the “Reality with the King” podcast last October and recalled her time on the show. She then went on to express her displeasure towards the production team’s idea to bring back old casts for the “Legacy” version and asked, “How could it be really good?”
Singer also condemned the producers for changing their minds since there were no plans in sight to renew former cast members and added:
“The people they are gonna bring back are the people they didn’t want to renew anyways. So now what? Are you gonna call it ‘The Loser Show,’ the ‘Loser Legacy’?”
Despite her outrage, The Blast shared that a source close to the star admitted that Singer did not mean to talk badly about the show, but the disclaimer did not salvage anything as the team did not forward an invite to her.
