'RHONY' Star Barbara Kavovit Suffers Setback in Battle to Save Mansion From Foreclosure

By Ryan Naumann

“Real Housewives of New York” star Barbara Kavovit will have to continue on fighting to save her home from foreclosure, after a judge denied her request to dismiss a lawsuit.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a hearing went down in New York on July 24, where a judge ruled the case filed by Deutsche Bank National will continue on.


Kavovit had argued the bank sued the wrong defendants but the judge didn’t see things the same way. The judge didn’t completely side with the bank, as he only allowed the case to move forward.


Last year, Deutsche Bank National sued Kavovit accusing her of failing to make mortgage payments and wanted to foreclose on her home.

The bank explained Barbara and her father, Joseph Kavovit, originally took out a loan in 2006 for $2.4 million to buy the 5-bedroom, 7-bathroon, 6,5000 sq. ft. $7 million home located in Wainscott, NY.

Joseph passed away in 2013 and the bank claimed Barbara became responsible for the home loan. They claim a payment due on April 1, 2015 wasn’t paid and still had not been. The bank accused Kavovit of owing $2,482,167.44 on the mortgage.

They sued seeking the full unpaid balance plus interest and for the judge to allow them to take the home and sell at public auction.

Kavovit demanded the case be thrown out saying the bank failed to give her notice of them planning to sue. She accused the loan terms of being illegal and asked for the judge to not allow them to foreclose.

The reality star even argued her father was the sole obligor to the note not her. Kavovit says as part of her bankruptcy the deed was transferred solely to her father in 2010. She claims for this lawsuit to move forward they would have had to sue her late father’s estate not her.
