Real Housewives of New York will indeed be sticking around for season six.

However, not all of the cast will be returning.

"The Real Housewives of New York City will return on Bravo for season six," stated a Bravo spokesperson today, according to Deadline. "At this point, the returning cast members include Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Carole Radziwill and Heather Thomson."

LuAnn de Lesseps and Aviva Drescher are not on the list of returnees. Despite this, E! states that the two woman may still be seen this season.

The season's fate fell into limbo early last week when the six stars united in an effort to receive a pay raise. Shooting for season six was intended to start on May 8 but failed to do so due to the actors holding out for a different contract, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Bravo reportedly gave the six women until the end of last week to sign on the dotted line. As of May 11, Us Weekly reported that all of the cast had agreed to the new contract.

Ok reports that, under the old pay scale, Singer and de Lesseps were the highest paid at $500,000 per season while Thompson came in as the lowest paid with $175,000 per episode.

Despite these hefty paychecks, the stars were still willing to go up against a network that, it seems the women have forgotten, has booted over 20 cast members in the six different Real Housewives series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
