Remy Ma was close to going from Love & Hip Hop: New York to being a Housewife for the Real Housewives of New York City.
The rapper was reportedly in talks to join the series before talks died down due to a technicality.
The 42-year-old has got the “wife” part covered. Remy married her then-fiance Papoose while in prison in May 2008 for shooting a friend.
RHONY cast member Eboni K. Williams reportedly recommended that The Bronx rapper would make a great addition to the series.
However, TMZ reports that despite Remy having a great conversation with Bravo producers, they are very particular about location.
The Lean Back rapper permanently relocated to New Jersey and does not have any residence in NYC as producers are said to have thought.

Cohen said continuing: “There are thousands of stories to tell here. This is the most multicultural, diverse, and energetic and exciting city in America”
