Hell hath no fury like a Housewife scorned.

The Real Housewives of New York‘ s Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan and LuAnn de Lesseps are aware of how much Bethenny Frankel is making from the series ($1 million for the season), and it’s not going over well.

Season eight of the franchise has already begun filming, but the three drunkateers are holding out unless Andy Cohen increases their salaries.

"Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered and negotiation is definitely an art form,” Frankel said, according to Reality Tea.  "I would venture to guess that most these women are not willing to walk away, so it’s all a useless exercise in nothing.”

Frankel has been seen filming with Carole Radziwill, Dorinda Medley and rumored new cast member Julianne Wainstein.

“LuAnn, Sonja and Ramona have banded together [in holding out for more],” a source told Page Six on October 24th. “They have not come to terms. The negotiations are always down to the last minute, but now the show’s started filming."

The source also told the paper that Frankel and Cohen are close, so she has a "long list" of people who could replace Singer, Sonja and de Lesseps should they walk.

Thank God for fallback careers like wine and toaster cookbooks.
