Real Housewives Of NYC

FAT RAISES ...

OR WE QUIT!

The Real Housewives of NYC have banded together against the Bravo Network -- REFUSING to continue on the show unless they ALL get huge raises, TMZ has learned. 

Sources tell us ... LuAnn de Lesseps, Carole Radziwill, Aviva Drescher, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan and Heather Thomson were recently approached by Bravo individually with contract offers to appear on Season 6, which is supposed to begin production on Monday.

But the women were each unhappy with the offers ... and figured they would have more leverage against the network if they teamed up ... just like the cast of "Friends" did back in the day.

We're told the women approached Bravo as a group and made their demand clear -- FAT RAISES FOR ALL ... OR WE QUIT.

Here's where it gets interesting -- sources tell us the network is FURIOUS ... and has told the group they have until Friday (tomorrow) to sign the offers that are currently on the table, or they're all FIRED.

Translation -- IT'S A STANDOFF!!!!!

One thing to consider -- Season 5 of "NYC Housewives" was one of the lowest rated seasons in the show's run.

A rep for Bravo had no comment on the situation.

Maybe these old hags should go and raise their children so they don't end up on drugs. Oh, too late.

Please fire them. Least interesting of all. Not that that's saying much. NOBODY can relate to these women(cough) Spend the money on developing some QUALITY programming that's not about rich, stupid, vapid women drinking wine and wearing sausage like dresses at any opportunity. Oh, and if you can get women who don't pull each other's weaves, that's a bonus.

I'm a fan of the NJ and BH Housewives. I stopped watching NY after Bethanny left. I tried watching NY last season and didn't last 10 minutes. Let them go, they're not worth watching. TV is supposed to be entertainment, not grown adults acting like obnoxious tweens.

If the network is going to spend more money, they should dump these "hagamuffins" and contract some trophy whor... wives with better name recognition and or looks. Who watches this chit anyway?

I am NYC girl and had to stop watching RHONYC. I watch all the other s RHs. They were not funny, engaging, or interesting. It is a schnooze-fest. I say good riddance, let them go. There's plenty of other interesting women in NYC
