REAL Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer has officially obtained her real estate salesperson license after fans have been calling for her to be fired from the series.
Ramona, 64, has been studying to obtain her broker license, as her new career goal has been a storyline on RHONY’s most recent season.
The Sun can exclusively reveal Ramona has officially obtained her salesperson license for New York.
The expiration date is August 16, 2023.
Ramona is working under Douglas Elliman Real Estate, according to the license.
According to Department of State Licensing Services for New York, a real estate salesperson must be under the supervision of a licensed real estate broker.
Ramona is able to “facilitate the purchase and sale of property on behalf of customers, obtain lists of property for sale with employing broker, assists buyers of real estate to locate and purchase property.”
She is also able to “list and negotiate the sale, lease, or rental of real property for others for compensation, under the direction and guidance of a responsible broker," according to the department's website.
She is unable to operate independently.
In December, Ramona revealed she is going into real estate.
She captioned a photo standing in a luxury apartment: “Real estate broker in training.”
She tagged Douglas Elliman and real estate broker Michael Lorber.
In a June episode of RHONY, Ramona had lunch with Michael and said she is a “natural” in real estate.
During the lunch, he reminded her of the change in terms, as “master bedroom,” “his and her’s bathrooms,” “bachelor pad” and more are outdated.
She then shockingly responded: “Someone told me because of invalids… handicapped people!”
Michael, who appeared stunned, responded: “Uh, right if you are in a wheelchair, you’re not steps to the park.”
The new career venture comes at the perfect time, as Ramona’s remarks got her in trouble this season.
Viewers have been calling for the original cast member’s firing over her “racist behavior.”
On a recent episode, Ramona sparked outrage at Eboni Williams’ Black Shabbat dinner to raise awareness over the struggle of minorities.
Dinner guest Linara told a story about how she and her son almost died in childbirth because doctors at the hospital refused to give her pain medication, as they thought she was a drug addict.
Ramona responded with her own story about how a black nurse “neglected” her and refused to give her pain medication when she was in labor.
RHONY fans branded the Bravo star "ignorant" and slammed her for making a woman's story about systemic racism in medical institutions about her.
CALL FOR FIRING
One fired on Twitter: "Andy Cohen, Bravo, I am BEGGING YOU – B E G G I N G YOU – to fire Ramona’s ignorant a**. How can you allow this behavior?! How do you stand behind her?! She is taking #RHONY down single handed."
Another said: "Y’all…Ramona interrupting Eboni’s friend while discussing medical racism… she made it about herself and did an “all lives matter.” Fire this b***h.”
A third blasted: "Ramona just tried to discredit a Black woman who shared her story about giving birth. Not everything is about you, Ramona! @Andy FIRE RAMONA!!!”
In July, RadarOnline reported Ramona has not been “invited back to the next season of the show.”
The insider continued: “One, she is too expensive. She is the only lady that has been on the show from day one. And her salary reflects it. Plus, the basic premise of the show doesn’t work anymore.”
The insider added: "A bunch of older white women behaving badly was fun a decade ago but not today.
"The world has changed and if the show wants to survive another decade it must change too and that starts with the cast.”
Ramona refused to attend the reunion amid the firing, as they still haven't filmed.
But Eboni shut the firing rumors down in August, as she said on the Chanel In The City podcast: "She's not fired. Let's start with that. OK, absolutely no casting decisions have been made.
"People that know RHONY know that they would never even consider what next season is going to look like before reunion. And so no, nobody's fired. Stop.”
CAST ON CHOPPING BLOCK
The Sun previously reported that Ramona, Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, Leah McSweeney and Eboni are all on the chopping block.
The insider revealed: “Things are in a complete state of panic amongst the cast of RHONY. Ramona is NOT the only one on the chopping block.
“There could be a complete revamp of the show and three or more people may be fired. Eboni, Ramona and Leah are ALL in danger.”
As for Ramona specifically, the insider said: “People have been very vocal about their dislike for Ramona this season. It doesn’t make sense to have her on the show anymore. She has become completely unlikable.
The source continued: “As for Leah and Eboni, they have been criticized by viewers on social media. And Eboni blaming producers for low ratings last week doesn't help her case.”
