There was great drama on the sea is too rough, we hear, after a “Real Housewives of New York City” pleasure cruise ended with the cast being inundated with vomiting and fear for their lives when their boat caught fire and started to sink.
Sea-sources tell Page Six that the ladies of the Bravo reality show were preparing for a day of sunbathing on a luxury yacht during a visit to Cartagena, Colombia — but things sank quickly into chaos once they realized that they had been recorded on an old, decrepit ship.

“Once they were allowed to board the boat couldn’t even move. The anchor got stuck, so the crew had noticed the anchor out before they can sail anywhere,” said our loose lips landlubber.
“When they came to the sea, the engine caught fire. It was a huge blaze, and the crew was fighting to make it out. They had no fire extinguisher, nor did they speak English,” we hear.
To add to their watery woes, we hear the sea is so rough that “the chairs and other things on the board that is not nailed down started flying about.” The boat was taking on water, “and there were only two or three life jackets for everyone on board,” including the film crew.
The cast, we hear, called a typical “Real Housewife” comment. “They all thought they were going to die and they were hysterical,” we hear. “Bethenny [Frankel], Ramona [Singer] and Dorinda [E] were soaked and screaming hysterically, Carole [Radziwill] and Tinsley [Mortimer] were literally vomiting from seasickness. They were far from the sea, and they thought that they would go down like the Titanic.”
They were eventually rescued by a passing boat. But we are told that the “Housewives” were so traumatized by the experience that Bravo has offered guidance.
A Bravo rep said, “‘The Real Housewives of New York City’ cast was recently on a boat in South America and met in turbulent water. Fortunately, everyone is fine and was able to continue their holiday as planned. The safety of our cast and crew is of the utmost importance and, to this end, we are doing a thorough investigation.”
