NEW YORK, May 12 (UPI) -- Cast members of the "Real Housewives of New York" signed a contract with Bravo, including modest pay raises and budgets for hair and makeup, sources told E!

Carole Radziwill, Ramona Singer, LuAnn de Lesseps, Heather Thomson, Aviva Drescher and Sonja Morgan were holding up production on the latest season of the reality show over a dispute with Bravo over their contracts, Deadline.com reported.

The women stood united against the network in their salary demands, saying all six would sign, or none at all.

In the end, they accepted Bravo's offer of a modest pay and budget increase, and filming for the show should resume, E! Online reported Saturday.

It was revealed last week that Singer and de Lesseps were previously paid approximately $500,000 each season, Morgan $220,000, Drescher $200,000 and Thomson $175,000, Deadline.com reported. Radziwill's salary was not reported.
