Bravo Reworks 'Real Housewives' Contracts

Execs at Bravo are reportedly putting their feet down when it comes to lackluster story lines from their talent.

According to a source, Andy Cohen and his team at Bravo are taking the necessary steps to eliminate boring wives from appearing on their Real Housewives franchises -- starting by shortening their contract lengths.

"Now ladies are being offered only 8 week contracts. If they don’t deliver the drama in the first few weeks of taping they will be dropped," a Bravo insider revealed, according to a May 23 report by Naughty Nice Rob, via Reality Tea

Apparently, certainly ladies who have appeared on the shows have promised big story lines and major drama but failed to deliver during filming. 

Although the insider didn't name any names, there have been a few seemingly generated story lines by Gretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney on The Real Housewives of Orange County. For instance, Rossi teased of marriage and a baby for a couple of seasons prior to leaving the show ahead of season nine, and now, Barney appears to be contemplating a child as well, despite her husband being against the idea.

 “Bravo has got super smart," a cast member claimed. "They wont be followed by false promises anymore. If the ladies don’t deliver the drama fast, they will be cut.”
