Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley had lunch together on Wednesday as plans for “The Real Housewives of New York City: Legacy” fell through.
The singer shared a selfie video on her Instagram story in which she and two of her co-stars huddled together in the back seat of a car on their way to a destination in New York City.
“Guess who I’m going to have lunch with today? I have the one and only Luan!” the singer said, panning the camera to show de Lesseps, who said “Hi” and blew the camera a kiss.
The “Life on the Ramona Coaster” author, 66, then eagerly panned the camera to her other side and surprised fans with a “One and Only” medley, even waving and saying “hello.”
“It’s the dynamic trio! [It] Great to be reunited with my girls! The singer gushes over the medley, echoing her friend that it “sounds great” and that it’s “just like old times.”
De Lesseps – who was seen looking “on edge” on Tuesday – also shared a video of the girls riding in a car on her Instagram story. However, his clip was produced specifically for a paying cameo client.
At the end of the video, the cabaret star, 57, flipped the camera to Medley, 58, and Singer, who hoped the customer was “feeling young.”

The network and the women disagreed on why contract talks went south. Sources close to the women said Bravo had cut them short, while production insiders claimed the alumni “wanted to create what the cast of ‘Friends’ created in their heyday.”
De Lesseps was the first “RHONY” alum to confirm that the network had “hit pause” on the series to PEOPLE on Tuesday.
“I’ve always said, ‘Never count out the countess,’ but in this case, it’s ‘Never count out the New York City housewives,'” he said, adding that he had “no doubt Not that she’ll find a way to bring her in. The OGs and beloved New York City housewives are back together again.
Page Six previously reported that de Lesseps and Medley — as well as Kelly Bensimon, Jill Zarin, Tinsley Mortimer and Sonja Morgan — made the shortlist, while Singer exclusively told us she’s Donzo.
“I don’t want to do the show anymore,” she told us last November. “It’s not for me right now.”
As for the women who were in the running, we’re told they were the ones who ultimately contributed to the show’s downfall when they couldn’t agree on whether to sign contracts.
Both Bensimon and Medley were willing to commit, but Zarin “pushing for a bigger salary was the straw that broke the camel’s back.”
Meanwhile, Morgan was “barely paying attention to the whole affair.”
