After several filming setbacks, it’s finally almost time for fans to be reunited with the Real Housewives of New York. This year will look a little different — Dorinda Medley is out. Eboni K. Williams is in as the first Black RHONY cast member. Leah McSweeney is an official vet. And Mama Heather Thomson is making a return, albeit briefly.
The first trailer for Season 13 shows Heather getting into it with Leah, which is a bit of a surprise. Leah and Heather are both fan-favorites. And back in Heather’s day, she tended to bicker with Ramona Singer and LuAnn de Lesseps, mostly about them sneaking men into their vacation rentals. But in the trailer, Leah calls Heather a “Karen” and it seems particularly heated. We know Leah is also sober this season, so it definitely wasn’t a drunken outburst reminiscent of last season.
All Real Housewives of New York fans know that Ramona Singer has a reputation for being cheap. She’s never afraid to ask for a discount or post an Instagram photo for free things (like her birthday party with 50 of her closest girlfriends.) She’s stolen lobsters, dresses and God knows what else.
Corona Ramona recently leaked her bank statement, allegedly on accident. While she quickly deleted it, the screenshots show that she’s stacking more than $300k in her account. Based on her Upper East side lifestyle (and yachting habits), I knew Ramona had no reason to be cheap. Now, there are just the receipts to prove it.
Mary Cosby truly brought something to the first season of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. I just haven’t decided if that something is good, bad, or just downright weird. From her perspective, it was a sign from God.
Mary started the show with a bang simply because of her off-the-wall storyline. She married her step-grandfather. She inherited the role of first lady of a church (that might be a cult) a la Gizelle Bryant style — but Gizelle isn’t exactly a Mary fan. Jen Shah became her sworn enemy when Mary told her she smelled like hospital. She said some pretty problematic things at the reunion, but also fell asleep in a hilarious way. Mary is truly a unique woman, even if she spends 98% of her time in her closet.
Despite not being on the air, the Real Housewives of New York is dominating headlines this week. The Season 13 trailer just dropped, featuring the show’s newest (and first Black) housewife Eboni K. Williams. Bethenny Frankel is finally divorced from her ex-
demon husband Jason Hoppy and engaged to her boo Paul Bernon. And Scott Kluth and Tinsley Mortimer broke up, and won’t stop telling their different versions of the story to the press.
And apparently, Tins and her friends aren’t going to back down with the Scott bashing. They’re sticking to the story that he “blindsided” her with the breakup and ran to the tabloids immediately after, while he claims they’ve been off for months. But now, Team Tinsley has more proof.
After coronavirus outbreaks and major cast shake-ups, the Real Housewives of New York is returning to our TVs this spring. And while the girls won’t be wreaking havoc in the Berkshires with Dorinda Medley this year, the show will introduce its first Black housewife and feature a few ghosts of RHONY past.
On Tuesday, People premiered the first trailer for Season 13 and it truly encompasses everything we love about RHONY. Ramona Singer avoids responsibility at every turn. Sonja Morgan and Luann de Lesseps argue about men. Everyone drinks a little too much. And even Leah McSweeney gets naked in a pool again. All is right in the world.
After months of speculation, it’s officially official. Bershan Shaw will be a part of Real Housewives of New York Season 13. At this moment, it’s unclear if she secured that apple as a full-time Housewife or she’s part-time, but we will find out soon enough.
We haven’t seen Bershan on screen yet, but based on her recent comments, she’s excited to join the group.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke has had a long journey to authenticity this season. The Real Housewives of Orange County star shocked us episode after episode. She revealed she’s an alcoholic, had a woman move in with them, and then ultimately came out as a lesbian. She took it one step further at the reunion, saying she was never attracted to husband, Sean Burke. And that was AFTER a vow renewal this season.
But aside from her revelations, fans have seemed divided on what to think. Braunwyn is coming out thirstier and thirstier as the days go on. She hired a photographer to take pics of her at BLM rallies. The ladies on the reunion were all too happy to point out. She also recently claimed that she only came out because TMZ had pics of her and her girlfriend. That had a lot of people scratching their heads, wondering if Braunwyn is a big enough star for TMZ to actually care.
Production on Real Housewives of New York has shut down in response to a coronavirus diagnosis for the second time.
The first time around, a crew member contracted the virus. This time, a cast member has coronavirus.
