Ramona Singer was recently fired from Lux Beauty Club, but of course, this star of The Real Housewives of New York City is speaking out now and has her own side of this story. Us Magazine shared the news about what happened and what Ramona Singer had to say about it all. The news came out at first that Ramona was fired for her “diva behavior.” She doesn’t agree with that statement at all.

Now Ramona Singer is speaking out and giving her side. She wants to make sure everyone knows that she doesn’t feel like her behavior was really the “diva behavior” they are saying. Ramona shared that it was more about not getting paid.
“If being a ‘diva’ is asking to be paid for work done, then everyone should be a diva. I didn’t know by asking to be paid for the work that I have done and fulfilling my contractual obligations makes me a diva. They clearly can’t afford to pay me and have no capital. I have been duped. Had they paid me, we would not be in this situation.”
Ramona Singer went on to share that she has been doing a lot for Lux Beauty Club. She helped to get press for them and even posted about them on social networks. Ramona helped them a lot by talking about them on WWHL and Jenny McCarthy’s radio show. Instead of paying her what they should have paid her, Ramona Singer shared that she only got paid $1,000 from them. Ramona had big plans to have her role with them as a big part of the show, which would have been huge press for Lux Beauty Club. This argument is getting them some press, but it isn’t all positive.
Page Six shared the other version of the story, though. Victoria Flores, who set up the Lux Beauty Club before bringing Singer into the company, shared her own side of the story. Flores sent an e-mail to Ramona explaining her thoughts. Here is how it all started.
“We were incredibly disappointed with your attitude at Harmons and our [return on investment] on you has been less than overwhelming. I can’t build a business with someone that fights me on everything I need them to do, and I want to partner with people that care about my business and are not motivated by blinding greed. This isn’t working out for me anymore.”
Ramona Singer also replied to the e-mail and said, “I can’t be fired as I have a signed contract that last [sic] 2 years… With no termination Clause. They are severely undercapitalized and can not afford to pay what is owed to me. I have fullfilled [sic] all my contractual Obligations.”

Flores was very upset that these e-mails ended up getting leaked. These were meant to be private between Ramona Singer and Victoria Flores. They didn’t want anyone to know all of the exact details. She shared that she still has hopes to sit down with Ramona Singer and work it all out, but that hasn’t been able to happen yet.
At this time, Flores and Singer haven’t shared if they were able to work their issues out. Everyone is hopeful that they will end up finding a way to work it out. Ramona Singer doesn’t seem like she is going to agree unless she gets the money she says they owe her.
