Ramona Singer’s demeanor on the Real Housewives of New York City is notoriously so up and down that she’s been deemed the “Ramona Coaster.” And it looks like that behavior is translating off screen. Just six months into a new business partnership with Lux Beauty Club hair extensions, Singer’s contract has reportedly been terminated after the beauty brand’s co-founder, Victoria Flores, hated the ride so much, she’s getting off.
Earlier this year Singer announced her partnership with the hair extension company after falling in love with her new hairdo saying she felt “10 years younger” with clip-ins. According to Page Six, Flores has a ended their business relationship via email writing Singer’s “diva behavior” is a major problem adding, “You are not Angelina Jolie!”

Back in January Flores told PeopleStyle that the extensions would play a prominent story line for Singer in this season of Real Housewives of New York. We’re 14 episodes in, and there’s been no mention of the line or Singer’s hair (which is pretty remarkable considering it served as the basis of countless fights seasons prior).
“We were incredibly disappointed with your attitude at Harmons and our [return on investment] on you has been less than overwhelming,” Flores wrote in the email. “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.”

Flores told PeopleStyle Singer initially brought about the partnership. “It was her idea,” Flores says. “She said she loves this product and that she only works with companies she believes in, and that she’d like to somehow become a partner. So we said absolutely.”
Now, Flores wishes they never went into business together writing in the termination email (obtained by Page Six), “You have been nothing but disrespectful . . . We would have never agreed to bring you on as a Brand Ambassador if we had been [a bigger company] . . . I would have given [a household name like] Rita Ora a part of my company, NOT Ramona Singer.”
Singer said she had signed a two-year contract with the company and will sit down with Flores to hash out the details. “I can’t be fired as I have a signed contract that last [sic] 2 years . . . With no termination clause,” Singer e-mailed Page Six. “They are severely undercapitalized and can not afford to pay what is owed to me. I have fulfilled [sic] all my contractual obligations.”
