Real Housewives Of New York is not even on the air yet, and we already know it’s going to be an epic season. Cameras have been rolling since before the New Year, and from what we’ve heard so far, the ladies of the Big Apple are BRINGING IT. The drama, the tragedy, the occasional resisting of arrest by way of locking oneself in a hotel bathroom – it’s all coming our way this Spring! April 4th, to be exact!
Here are ten reasons why season 10 of RHONY is going to be off the chain.
Making It Nice in the Berkshires
Dorinda Medley cooks, she cleans, she makes it nice. Every season, the RHONY ladies meet in the Berkshires to celebrate the holidays, scream at each other, and in Ramona Singer’s case, tear Dorinda’s spare bedroom apart with her bare hands. The Berkshires weekend has become a rite of passage, and we hear this season’s annual trip did not disappoint.
On the agenda: Probably lots of talk about the dissolution of Luann de Lesseps’ marriage to Tom D’Agostino, which was also the subject of last year’s Berkshires gathering. Ironically, Luann wasn’t married to Tom then, and isn’t again now.
Luann Slaps a Cop
Luann was arrested on Christmas Eve for slapping a cop, resisting arrest, then breaking out of the police cruiser before being tackled back into it and ferried to the local precinct. All the way there, Luann was allegedly screaming, “I AM GOING TO KILL YOU ALL!”
This all occurred after Luann was busted for entering a hotel room that wasn’t hers, then refused to leave – ultimately locking herself In the bathroom. The mystery man she was with skedaddled, as did Luann’s friend who came later to calm her down. This all occurred, OF COURSE, in Palm Beach – on the anniversary of Luann’s failed marriage to Tom. Although cameras weren’t filming during the holiday break, rest assured that this fall from grace will be a major storyline this season.
It’s About Tom
Speaking of Palm Beach – or West Palm Beach, as Tinsley Mortimer would point out – Tom recently got into a scuffle with the law as well. Luann’s wretched ex-husband of five minutes and his new gal pal were dining out when Tom ran into an old business associate. Apparently, the two men started hurling insults at each other, then hurled drinks!
Police were called and it’s been reported that the investigation is still open. But let’s hope Tom’s window of D-list fame on RHONY is closed. You know the women are going to be talking about this sh*t though – especially Luann!
Bethenny’s Disaster Relief
We watched the horrors of hurricanes unfold in 2017, and one Housewife rose to the occasion like no other Bravolebrity. Despite criticism, Bethenny suited up and showed up for thousands of people in TX, FL, and Puerto Rico who were in dire need of human aid.
Chartering planes, organizing donations from small businesses, and flying with her team to destinations in need of help, Bethenny walked her B-Strong talk. Here’s hoping RHONY shows us some on-the-ground footage of this mission in action. Plus – It’s better than watching another 6-month Skinnygirl commercial, eh?
As for the former Countess, we can count on her bouncing back this season after her short stint in rehab. She’s bouncing right into a cabaret act, in fact!
This week, Luann debuted some sort of absurd/amazing cabaret show in the vein of Sonja Tremont Morgan, who we know loves a good cringeworthy public performance. Sonja actually joined Luann on stage to celebrate Luann’s freedom in a hailstorm of glitter and weird disco lighting. We are here for this.
Mugshots & Courtroom Drama
Luann’s freedom will be a major storyline this season, as she’s still awaiting punishment for her Christmas Eve shenanigans. Her lawyer refused plea deal #1, according to sources because it included jail time. But word on the street is that because Luann refused the first deal, she could actually be facing MORE jail time now. Huh? Whatever happens, we need to see it on RHONY.
While Luann was still in rehab after her arrest, the rest of the RHONY crew participated in an Escape Room activity at which they brandished their own mugshots. We like to think this was in solidarity with their locked-up homie.
Jill Zarin & Bethenny Frankel Make Amends
Sadly, Jill Zarin lost her beloved husband, Bobby Zarin, to cancer this year. In a surprising moment, news sources picked up shots of Bethenny and Jill sharing a tender moment outside of Bobby’s memorial service in NYC. Later, we learned that Jill had welcomed Bravo cameras to film the scene, which caused raised eyebrows everywhere – but also interest in seeing exactly what plays out between the women on that sidewalk. We’ll definitely be seeing this promoted heavily.
Jill Crashes Morocco
It’s Scary Island 2018! Ramona posted clips of the cast trip in Morocco this winter, then sprung this nugget on us: JILL SHOWED UP TOO! Because…of course she did.
This time, Ramona didn’t turn her frenemy away, so Jill apparently got to crash the RHONY trip and was even included in filming. Only the sudden appearance of Kelly Bensimon (and maybe some throwback gummy bears) could make this a true full circle moment. In any case, it’s going to be a wild ride.
Everyone Boards the Titanic
At least they acted like they did when their “luxury boat” in Colombia turned out to be a junky vessel that caught on fire and almost sent the RHONY cast to their watery graves! Reports included horrific facts like the anchor being sawed off, the engines catching fire, and Ramona’s blowout getting wet. In short, it was a comic tragedy that we better all be getting FRONT ROW seats for this season. If Bravo buries this footage, they are dead to me.
This epic photo needs to be RHONY’s holiday card, period. Or turned into an oil painting. While other Housewives franchises were arguing over which stemware to use for Rose, these badass b*tches were sitting on the floor of a Colombian airport looking like they just washed up on shore after a shipwreck. Which, they pretty much did.
Please note: Ramona in a wheelchair fixing her hair. Is this not everything we need our Housewives to be? Damaged, delusional, fabulous, and a HOT MESS?
Please, RHONY, come back to us soon! You broads are the A-team, and we salute you.
