We are all eagerly anticipating the return of Real Housewives of New York next week. Aside from seeing all of our favorites back on TV again, we will “meet” new RHONY cast member Leah McSweeney.
In comparison to the other Real Housewives shows, the Real Housewives of New York cast doesn’t change too often. We all saw Barbara Kavovit struggle when most of the cast refused to welcome her into the group. That was a total fail. How will Leah fare in comparison? She’s hinted about it in some recent interviews.
I still cannot believe that when Season 12 of Real Housewives of New York debuts on April 2, it will be without Bethenny Frankel. The Skinnygirl mogul announced in August of 2019 that she would not be returning to the show.
Of course, Bethenny’s decision did cause some drama with her RHONY co-stars. Ramona Singer claimed that the cast found out that Bethenny was leaving through the press. Ouch!
This quarantine has us quarantined and yearning for new Real Housewives content. Unfortunately, Season 12 of Real Housewives of New York will not be released early, despite requests from fans. However, April 2 isn’t that far away.
And as much as we are craving new content in the form of episodes, there is at least something new for fans to consume and discuss. The Season 12 RHONY taglines are out. Let’s see what the ladies came up with.
Ramona Singer is the last remaining “OG” on Real Housewives of New York after Bethenny Frankel’s surprise departure. Of course, Luann de Lesseps is still on RHONY, but she was demoted for one season. Don’t worry–she has more than made up for that slight with her cabaret adventures.
Unfortunately, Ramona revealed that she was recently diagnosed with Lyme disease. Ramona’s sister battled the same condition years ago.
Barbara Kavovit never got the chance she deserved on Real Housewives of New York. She was brought in as a “friend of” Luann de Lesseps during her most tumultuous season to date. Luann was in the midst of an emotional crisis and Barbara was apparently the one who helped get her
mostly straightened out in the office season. By the time the ladies hit filming, Barbara was still around but only as a punching bag for castmates like Ramona Singer and Dorinda Medley.
Luann, being the self-absorbed diva that she is, didn’t do much to stop it either. Whether she was so embroiled in her own issues or if she really just expended all her energy avoiding the fish room, Barbara was left out in the friendship cold.
Love her or loathe her, we can always count on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Brandi Glanville to always be interesting. The woman is not shy when it comes to opening up about her own life or sharing her opinions on others and what they have going on.
She gained a following as a cast member on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but after that she appeared on a bunch of different reality TV shows including Celebrity Apprentice, Celebrity Big Brother, Marriage Bootcamp, and Famously Single. This means she’s met a lot of other reality TV stars. And, yes, she has some strong opinions on all of them.
The idea of an all-star edition of Real Housewives has been floating around for ages. Previously, Andy Cohen had a bunch of OG Real Housewives on Watch What Happens Live for a Christmas special. Then, he followed up with a Real Housewives-filled baby shower, that sadly wasn’t filmed.
It’s always so entertaining to see Real Housewives from different shows interacting with each other and Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes has a great idea for a new show. Picture this: The View, but with Real Housewives of as hosts.
Many Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers assumed that Teddi Mellencamp would name her third child “Kyle” because, well, there are many reasons. Plus, the name is gender-neutral.
Teddi and her husband Edwin Arroyave welcomed their third child together last night, a baby girl. Edwin also has another daughter from a previous relationship.
