After being accused of unprofessionalism and “diva behavior” by her hair extensions business partner, Victoria Flores of Lux Beauty Club, Ramona Singer is firing back. Sources confirm that Ramona was fired from Lux, however Ramona claims the issue all comes down to money – or lack thereof.
The Real Housewives of New York spitfire snarked, “If being a ‘diva’ is asking to be paid for work done, then everyone should be a diva.” This statement came after Flores accused Ramona of having a bad attitude at a recent promotional event for their hair extensions. After the event at Harmon’s beauty store, Flores emailed Ramona, “We were incredibly disappointed with your attitude at Harmon’s and our [return on investment] on you has been less than overwhelming.”

Ramona intimates that her attitude stemmed from not being paid for the work she did in promoting the hair extensions. This work, according to Ramona, included “getting them press, posting about them on my various social media accounts, name-dropping them on several national TV and radio programs (like WWHL and Jenny McCarthy’s radio show).” It also included Ramona wearing them
like a bedraggled wet cat on her head in this season’s RHONY. For these efforts, Ramona says she was only paid the measly sum of $1,000 by Flores‘ company.
Ramona tells Us Weekly, “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.”
Flores‘ emails to Ramona, which Page Six made public this week, send a scathing message to the reality star. “You are not Angelina Jolie!” Flores (hilariously) wrote, followed by accusations of Ramona’s entitled behavior. Apparently, Flores was shocked to see the emails published though, and is now trying to back peddle on her harsh statements.
Flores says the emails were meant to be private, and that she hopes she and Ramona can sit down like adults to discuss their situation. “We’re a startup, so we can’t afford to be giving all of our money to brand ambassadors,” Flores explains, “We love Ramona; she’s a lot of fun and Ramona is a friend to the brand. We hope to sit down and talk out our differences and continue working with her.” Mmmm hmmm. <side eye>
