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. AndCarole 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.
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.”
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.

Who’s ready for the return of Real Housewives Of New York?! The teaser for season 9 has just been released and it looks like things are gonna get crazy! YAY. Like good, fun, ridiculous, crazy. The show is set to premiere on April 5th!
Kim Kardashian swooped into NYC, gearing up for Kanye West‘s NYFW show and probably to do a little press for the upcoming season of her show. She had to up her game and go with a sheer top that left nothing to the imagination. Must not have been getting enough press attention. 😉 Kim’s sister Kylie Jenner is also in town with Tyga. I admit that I can’t wait for the photos of Kanye’s show to hit the web. Can he top last year’s disaster?
