Just over a month after Bravo officially announced there would be no reunion, insiders are revealing that a third-party investigation was launched against Ramona after Eboni K. Williams accused her castmate of racism in a formal complaint filed before the reunion special was supposed to be filmed.
According to an October 29 report from TMZ, Bravo decided to cancel the reunion after the investigation, which included interviews with the cast and production crew, led for the special to be pushed back on a number of occasions.
“It was already a low-rated season so there were concerns about who would tune in [three] months later,” one source explained.
While Eboni reportedly felt that a comment Ramona had made was racially motivated, she was ultimately cleared due to a lack of evidence to support the allegations.
TMZ went on to say that Eboni’s claims against Ramona weren’t the only ones made against the longtime RHONY castmate. In fact, Eboni was led to make her complaint after learning a crew member previously did the same and saw no change in her behavior.
