The Real Housewives Of New York cast has escaped NYC’s blizzard for the island paradise of Turks and Caicos! The ladies somehow managed to board a plan and avoid snowmaggeden. 

“I like planes better than blizzards, so we got onto one. #Adieu, darlings!  #RHONY @KristenTaekman #girls #travel” LuAnn de Lesseps shared, adding a photo of Kristen Taekman on the plane (seen below). 

While no one has confirmed that Turks and Caicos is the place, Kristen revealed it is certainly a tropical location when she shared photos of herself relaxing in the sand. Photos below!

Other than last season, RHONY has been known to do cast trips in the lap of luxury – so hopefully this season won’t disappoint! Speaking of this season, LuAnn is confident she’ll be returning as a full-time Housewife (I would hope so!) and Ramona Singer says this will be a very real, very heart- wrenching one. Ramona will share her experience going through divorce from Mario

LuAnn shares that this season viewers can expect “a different kind of drama” with the re-addition of Bethenny Frankel and with rumored new castmate Dorinda Medley, but also because LuAnn is probably back as a full-time Housewife! “As you saw last season, I was part-time but I was really on every episode,” LuAnn told OK! “I really pulled my weight in terms of the show.”

LuAnn says season 7, filming now, will “be more like the first season of [the] show,” and feature more “real” moments in the ladies lives and their relationships. “I’m really forthcoming with what’s going on in my life,” she adds. LuAnn believes Bethenny and Dorinda certainly bring a “new dynamic between the ladies.”

As for Dorinda joining the show, LuAnn believes viewers will “love her” because she fits in perfectly with the group. She is also “very happy” Bethenny is back. LuAnn is also happy the Aviva drama is gone. 

LuAnn insists that she enjoys participating in the show so much she’d be fine with reprising her role as a ‘Friend’ of the Housewives. “I’m here because I want to be here. Whether I have an apple in my hand, it doesn’t matter to me.” Hey, it’s probably actually more fun – less money – but also less stress, and you still get to go to all the parties and on the trips! 

Ramona echos that this season is definitely more real than seasons past. “I think the chemistry has really evolved. There are actually some true friendships here and we have some true heartaches,” said Ramona while supporting on-again/off-again friend LuAnn at the launch of her Resident Magazine cover and clothing line. 

Ramona is happy that Bethenny returned as well. “She and I had a great relationship prior to the show, but our relationship has gotten even better! I’m really happy she’s on.” Doesn’t Ramona remember that scene on the Brooklyn Bridge when she told Bethenny she’d destroy things with Jason? Man – is Ramona psychic?!

Anyway, Pinot is also moving forward with opening a restaurant which she describes as a “sports bar that’s kind of upscale.” Because when I think Pinot, I think SPORTS! “It’s a really great atmosphere. It’s a great place as a woman going out with your women friends to mingle and chat and network,” Ramona tells OK! Magazine.
