­LuAnn de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan and ­Ramona Singer Holding For More Money On 'RHONY'
There’s already drama behind the scenes of “The Real Housewives of New York,” which has begun filming its eighth season without three of the series’ stars who are holding out for more money.

Sources tell Page Six that the holdouts — ­LuAnn de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan and ­Ramona Singer — are still negotiating new contracts since they want to get closer to the more than $1 million paycheck higher-paid co-star Bethenny Frankel is making.

But a source said the last-minute holding out “could work against them.” And if they don’t sign, Frankel has “a long list of friends” from which to suggest replacements on the show to Bravo.

Skinnygirl cocktail mogul Frankel scored a ­reported $1 million payday to return to the Bravo franchise last season, which gave the show a much needed boost. But “the other women aren’t even close” in salary, a source close to the show told us.
