Real Housewives of New York

Real Housewives of New York season premiere

YES!!! The ladies of The Real Housewives Of New York are back and ready to play hardball! Last night’s season premiere set the stage for story lines that will tie the season together – or, more likely, cause everyone to unravel.

Ramona Singer simply can’t allow Luann de Lesseps to marry fiance Tom D’Agostino without creeping her out with strange champagne toasts (and playing Nancy Drew behind her back), while Dorinda Medley can’t let go of the petty nonsense that came to a head with Sonja Morgan at last season’s reunion. Meanwhile, Bethenny Frankel is busy starting a new chapter of her life, which includes unloading the apartment she once shared with ex-husband Jason Hoppy. And Carole Radziwill, obsessing about the 2016 Presidential election to a degree that even exhausts Bethenny, shows us what it looks like to “shack up” with a boyfriend. Hint: It apparently includes adopting pets, reupholstering your couch, and forcing your boyfriend to get a makeover.

NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 05: Sonja Morgan attends

Tonight Sonja Morgan and her co-stars attended The Real Housewives Of New York premiere party to celebrate season 9 at The Attic Rooftop Lounge. She was joined by Dorinda Medley, Andy Cohen, Luann D’Agostino, Tinsley Mortimer and more!

Jeff Lewis even stopped by the party before he rushed over for his appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Bethenny Frankel. Jeff mentioned some drama involving alcohol, but he glossed over it and didn’t spill much tea.

The Real Housewives of New York City - Season 9

Happy Wednesday! Are you as excited as we are that The Real Housewives of New York season 9 premieres tonight?

We saw that crazy promo trailer and now Ramona Singer is promising viewers another insane season of fun and fighting. She told Entertainment Tonight, “It’s crazier than hell. I don’t know what it is with us. I mean, you can’t script this stuff. We get nuts with each other. Then we make up. Then we get nuts.”

Luann and Tom

Hell hath no fury like a Housewife divorced? Last season Bethenny Frankel tearfully exposed Luann de Lesseps‘ fiancé of one minute of cheating, but Luann scoffs that was just Bethenny “projecting her own failed marriage” onto Luann’s perfect, amazing, super blissful, fabulous, happiness! Don’t F–K with A Lu In Love, y’all!

So, like, Luann is projecting her self-described perfect happiness onto Bethenny’s scorn, to cover-up that maybe Tom D’Agostino Jr. is actually a cheater, while Bethenny is simultaneously projecting her belief that marriages fail onto Luann’s insistence that marriages work. Does that make sense to anyone? No – it doesn’t, but I need a side-job writing Housewives-related questions for the SAT Test.

Anyway, of last season’s Real Housewives Of New York Berkshire explosion/Miami cheating-gate, Luann says, “Poor Bethenny… You know what, I felt bad for her because she was crying so hard for herself, really. [The tears] it’s not really meant for me – I think it’s issues she’s having herself.”

Kelly Bensimon return to RHONY?

I don’t know why Kelly Bensimon would ever return to Real Housewives of New York, but I would be pumped if she did. Sure, it wasn’t the best look for her, but she really made good TV. I will never in my life forget her weird rant about Al Sharpton and jelly beans while she was arguing with Bethenny Frankel on Scary Island.

Bethenny made a return to RHONY and even Jill Zarin will appear next season, so why not bring back Kelly? Well, apparently this is a possibility.

NEW YORK, NY - MARCH 23: Journalist Carole Radziwill attends the opening night of

We’ve managed to steer clear of political talk here on Reality Tea, wanting to keep the site as a refuge for those seeking an escape from the stress of all things politics – no matter what your views. We’re a fansite for reality television fans and even though a reality star was running for office, we wanted to keep this place as a space for dishing on the ridiculousness and fun of reality shows. That said, it seems the upcoming season of Real Housewives of New York is going to force us to acknowledge the election on some level since it is going to be a large part of Carole Radziwill‘s storyline this season.

We weighed our options on how to handle this as we prepare for the premiere of RHONY this week. We even considered NOT covering the show at all this season because if you’ve ventured off and read comments on any political articles, you know full well what a shitshow it is. And we do not want that here. If you thought the heyday of Teresa Giudice VS. Melissa Gorga was a stressful mess of hate when it came to the comments, that was a civilized tea party compared to what we’ve seen when it comes to political discussions online. We even considered recapping the shows but eliminating any of Carole’s political scenes or turning off the comments, but that would be a tricky task and not very authentic and not what we want to do.

Nothing gets me more pumped for a new Real Housewives season than the taglines reveal. These are the phrases that each Housewife says at the start of each episode. They (usually) entertain and set the tone for what to expect from each cast member that season.

Now that the Real Housewives of New York taglines have been released I cannot help (over) analyzing about what’s about to go down in the new season.

Tinsely Mortimer - RHONY season 9

Tinsley Mortimer joined Real Housewives Of New York to re-start her life after ending an abusive relationship with  Alexander “Nico” Fanjul, an heir to Florida’s sugar industry. Literally.

Tinsley met her much-younger, much-monied former beau Nico after divorcing the much-monied, much social-connected Topper. Her relationship with Nico was dramatic from the get-go, and she confesses to spending “years” covering up the truth about their “tumultuous, terrible relationship.”
