A woman who worked for Ramona Singer of “Real Housewives of New York” said the reality star involved her in a scheme to bill the Bravo network for clothes she bought and returned.
In a lawsuit, Lisa Taubes, who did marketing and branding for Singer and her clothing company, said she was fired after complaining about money she said Singer owed her.
Taubes said that after she refused to sign a nondisclosure agreement, “Ms. Singer shoved Ms. Taubes, grabbed Ms. Taubes’ handbag and overturned the contents of the handbag in the lobby,” according to court papers.
But the worst of Taubes’ employment involved submitting false receipts to Bravo for clothes.
“Specifically, Defendants asked Ms. Taubes to purchase designer clothes for the filming of Ms. Singer’s show, and instructed Plaintiff to submit receipts to Bravo Cable Network for reimbursement and then asked Ms. Taubes to return the clothes for refund,” according to the lawsuit.
Taubes said she worked for Singer from January 2016 to December 2017.
A representative for Singer did not immediately return a request for comment.
Taubes is seeking $ 150,000 in damages.
