Eboni K. Williams filed a formal complaint against Ramona Singer alleging racist behavior that resulted in a third-party investigation, reports TMZ. But while Singer was ultimately cleared, Bravo felt it was too late for a Season 13 reunion because the shooting date kept getting pushed back. "We're told the probe was tasked with looking into an alleged comment Ramona made that Eboni felt was racially motivated," reports TMZ. "As part of the investigation, we're told the cast and production crew sat down for interviews ... and in the end, Ramona was cleared because nothing was found to corroborate Eboni's claims. We're told once the investigation wrapped the network felt it was too late to film a reunion because too much time passed from the end of the season." A source tells TMZ that since Season 13 was already a low-rated season, Bravo didn't expect fans to tune in for a reunion held three months later. TMZ adds that before Williams lodged her complaint, a crew member also accused Singer of race issues -- "but clearly, the alleged conduct had continued -- and that's why Eboni felt it was important to complain as well." The scrapped reunion cost the Real Housewives of New York stars money since they are paid per episode and the reunion was likely to stretch over three episode.
