The stars of Real Housewives of New York are considering taking legal action against Bravo after their recent nightmare cruise in Colombia, but the network is not going to let the ladies get away with a lawsuit. Will Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Carole Radziwill, Dorinda Medley, and Tinsley Mortimer lose their jobs if they try to take Bravo to court?
According to Radar Online, if the ladies even think about suing, the network will fire and replace them.
It all started when the cast – sans LuAnn de Lesseps – was supposed to take a luxurious yacht to Cartagena, Colombia, but instead, they found themselves on a cruise from hell.
“Once they were ushered on board, the boat couldn’t even move,” reveals an insider. “The anchor got stuck, so the crew had to saw the anchor off before they could sail anywhere.”
The source added that once the boat got out to sea, the engine caught on fire and the crew fought to put out the huge blaze. But, there wasn’t a fire extinguisher on board, and none of them spoke English.

The vessel started taking on water, and the ladies got soaked and started screaming. A few of them even started to throw up before a passing boat came to their rescue.
However, some sources are claiming that the incident wasn’t as traumatic as first reported. Bravo has footage from the vessel, and there apparently isn’t any fire or rescue boat.
It seems instead that the show is attempting to build up some drama on a series that has become dull.
The network is downplaying the event, releasing a statement that says the boat encountered turbulent water on its return trip and the anchor deployed unexpectedly. But, at no point was there any danger of the ship sinking, and a rescue wasn’t required.

Bravo says that the safety of the cast and crew is a top priority, and they are still reviewing the situation. But, thankfully, everyone is fine.
However, the women are apparently still quite distraught from the experience, so the network did offer them counseling. But, when it comes to taking any kind of legal action, the ladies’ contracts make it very difficult.
Bravo has yet to announce the premiere date for season ten of Real Housewives of New York, but the show typically starts in the spring.
