The 2016 presidential election was central to Carole Radziwill’s storyline on Real Housewives of New York season 9.

She hosted a victory party for Hillary Clinton, which she planned before finding out the election results. Carole’s tagline even played into that election loss, with her quipping, “In the politics of friendship, I win the popular vote.”

Have no fear! After a slight break, the filming for Real Housewives of New York has resumed. There has been a lot of speculation about casting this year. After Dorinda Medley was fired there were more than a few rumors about who would take her place. We officially know that Eboni K. Williams has been cast.

There’s also some tea that holla-back girl Heather Thomson will be returning part time! Fingers crossed she’s returned to knock Corona Ramona Singer down a few pegs like the good old days. Heather has been spotted with both Ramona and Luann de Lesseps. This could get wild. Meanwhile, Heather is commenting on who else she’d love to share the RHONY stage with.

Season 13 of Real Housewives of New York will be a time of embracing progress, and also giving a nod to the past. Viewers knew that RHONY would be adding some new blood. Tinsley Mortimer quit the show to move to Chicago with her love (and now fiancé) Scott Kluth. Dorinda Medley’s tirades against all her co-stars, especially Tinsley, led to her eventual firing.

For Season 13, Eboni K. Williams joined the cast as the first Black housewife. Finally! And now we have confirmation that RHONY alum Heather Thomson will also be appearing on the show. Welcome back, Mama!

Fans are already ready for Real Housewives of New York to return. Luckily, despite a two-week COVID-19 break, filming is already underway! Spoiler: it wasn’t a cast member, but production, who tested positive for the virus. That said, the drama during filming this season seems to be closely followed. At the center of the off-season news is our newest housewife,  Eboni K. Williams. There’s also rumors of Heather Thomson’s return. Hollaaaaaa.

Eboni has mentioned feeling like a third-wheel around Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer. Is anyone surprised? Sonja just keeps descending further into a state of constant confusion. She’s harmless, but aloof. Ramona is just straight up rude. I can’t wait to see how this turns out. I’m just pleading that it’s not another year of generational division.

For the most part, pretty much nothing happened during the most recent season of Real Housewives of New York. Dorinda Medley belittled Tinsley Mortimer until Tinsley quit in the middle of the season. Leah McSweeney got wasted and threw tiki torches, raviolis, and whatever else she could pick up (and toss) for attention. She’s currently sober, so, it’s fair to assume that she will not be throwing objects next season.

But, what were the actual storylines? Yes, these women are so funny, but there was really nothing happening. No wonder they decided to shake up the cast. Elyse Slaine will not be back to continue her feud with Ramona SingerDorinda got fired after a season with very few redeeming moments. Eboni K. Williams was hired as the first Black cast member in Real Housewives of New York history. And, now it seems like Heather “Holla” Thomson might be back. Or at the very least it seems like she filmed a lunch scene with Luann de Lesseps and Ramona.

It was rumored that entertainment news correspondent Alicia Quarles would be the first Black cast member on Real Housewives of New York. Then, there was speculation that Bershan Shaw would join the cast.

As of this moment, it doesn’t look like either of them will be on the show, but there is a new addition to the show that has been officially confirmed.

Heather Thomson may have only been on three seasons of Real Housewives of New York City, but she definitely made her mark. Holla!! She was a staunch supporter of Sonja Morgans’ storyline toaster oven. She was not afraid of Ramona Singer. And she referred to everyone, including herself, as Mama.

Most recently Heather shared that she was not surprised that Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill’s friendship came to an end. Carole is still her close friend. The two of them just sat down to reminisce about their time on RHONY and talked about behind-the-scenes drama.

Holla! I will admit that I loved Heather Thomson when she joined Real Housewives of New York during Season 5. She was smart and quick to call anyone out on their bullsh*t. I loved seeing her friendship with fellow RHONY newbie Carole Radziwell blossom.

Viewers may recall watching Heather try to help co-star Sonja Morgan launch her toaster oven line. And who can forget Heather refusing to invite Ramona Singer to the cast trip to London? But after three seasons, Heather was tired of the fake drama and exited the series.
