The 'RHONY' Cast Narrowly Escapes From Sinking Cruise Ship
The cast of The Real Housewives of New York City recently experienced a scary moment while attempting to enjoy a cruise.
According to a new report, the women of the show were filming for the upcoming 10th season of the Bravo TV reality show when drama broke out and led many of the women to fear for their lives as their boat reportedly caught fire and began to sink.
It all went down on a luxury yacht in Cartagena, Colombia, where the ladies were faced with chaos when they realized that their alleged luxury boat was actually "an old, decrepit vessel."
An insider told Page Six on Feb. 19 that the boat they were on could not move once they boarded the ship.
Apparently, the anchor of the ship the cast was on got itself stuck and the staff of the boat was forced to saw off the device before they were able to set sail. Then, after they went out on the water, the boat's engine caught on fire. As the insider explained, the blaze was huge and the staff had to fight to put it out because they didn't have a fire extinguisher on hand, nor did they speak any English.
In addition to the troubles mentioned, the ladies of The Real Housewives of New York City were also faced to endure a hectic moment as several seats and other things on board began to fly around the boat. Then, as if that weren't bad enough, the vessel began taking on water and there were just two or three life jackets -- not nearly enough for everyone on the boat.
The Page Six source said that the entire cast of The Real Housewives of New York City, including Ramona Singer, Dorinda Medley, and Bethenny Frankel, was completely hysterical and thought they were able to die. They were also said to be hysterically screaming as Carole Radziwill and Tinsley Mortimer became seasick and began to vomit.
In a statement in regard to the scary incident, Bravo representative said that the Real Housewives of New York City cast was recently on board a boat in South America that encountered turbulent water. However, despite the at-sea drama, the rep assured fans that the women of the show were unharmed and able to move forward with the rest of their vacation.
The show returns to Bravo TV later this year.
