The Real Housewives were real green when it came to TV contracts and the fact that NBC/Bravo can do what they want with the series… and will. The RHOA are pissed off about this decision:
RHOA: “This is some bull sh*t. We’ve been fighting their as* for the longest to keep the show from going to syndication without us making a dime … Damn, we’re not getting a dime and they’re making all the money… WOW … They can play the show forever and we will never get a check, that ain’t right…”
NBC’s “Real Housewives” franchise is moving into syndication. Reruns of the “Housewives” series will begin airing weekdays on Ch. 4 next fall, NBC announced yesterday. While nothing is official yet, it’s expected that all four of the “Housewives” franchises — New York, New Jersey, Orange County and Atlanta — will air in syndication.
The originals air on Bravo, NBC’s sister cable network. It hasn’t been worked out how the repeats will air, but episodes from each individual series — like “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” — are expected to air in continuous blocks for continuity purposes.
This is the difference between a real celebrity and a fake one. We’re pretty sure this had to be in the contract somewhere. The girls won’t be getting a dime either. All of this in the midst of Kandi opening up a boutique. Better save that money. SMH
