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.
Real Housewives of New York fans weren’t ever given a proper introduction to Elyse Slaine. She just sort of kept popping up during Season 12 and was listed as “Ramona Singer’s friend.”
No one can deny that Season 12 of Real Housewives of New York was a rough one for Dorinda Medley. I love Dorinda, but her explosive outbursts really aggravated me this season. What happened to the fun Dorinda and her sassy one-liners?
Her favorite target this season was RHONY co-star Tinsley Mortimer. Dorinda called out Tinsley for not being transparent about her life and her relationship with Chicago businessman Scott Kluth.
Real Housewives of New York newbie Leah McSweeney is an outspoken and long-time supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement. She has supported the cause on her social media and has attended protests. The RHONY star also took part in the Bravo special “Race in America: A Movement Not a Moment.”
Right now, reality television is being swept by the cancel culture movement. Vanderpump Rules stars Kristen Doute, Stassi Schroeder, Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens recently won pink slips for past racist behavior.
Real Housewives of New York alum Bethenny Frankel has a lot on her plate these days. She shocked RHONY fans when she abruptly decided to exit the show in August of 2019. There must be some hard feelings, because Bethenny allegedly threw a fit when a producer during Bravocon opined that the show didn’t need her to succeed. A furious Bethenny blocked that producer on social media.
Since then, Bethenny has been busy helping those impacted by the coronavirus. The Skinnygirl mogul delivered 1 million protective suits to New York and 50,000 suits to Louisiana. Bethenny’s BStrong foundation raised funds to aid 100 black-owned businesses impacted by Covid-19. Say what you will about Bethenny, but she really comes through to help those affected by disasters.
Jill Zarin may have been fired from Real Housewives of New York after Season 4, but she is still part of the drama on the sidelines. After her beloved husband Bobby Zarin’s death from cancer in January of 2018, Jill and former friend Bethenny Frankel reunited outside of Bobby’s memorial service while RHONY cameras were rolling.
Since then, Jill found love again with her boyfriend Gary Brody. The couple was even shown attending Luann de Lesseps’ Voodoo Halloween party. Jill seemed relaxed and happy.
Ramona Singer has been right in the middle of all the drama this season on Real Housewives of New York. You know how Ramona hates to be the center of attention!
She has slammed newbie RHONY co-star Leah McSweeney for her drunken antics. She has fought with Elyse Slaine about whether or not they are close friends.
Ramona was berated by Dorinda Medley about plans for Ramona’s birthday party, because Dorinda thought that she and Sonja Morgan were used as a social media photo op for the party planner. And let’s not forget that Ramona has ditched the ladies to attend swankier parties or go on a date.
Ever since Tinsley Mortimer left Real Housewives of New York, co-star Ramona Singer has become the new target for her angry, and often drunken, co-stars. Dorinda Medley took issue with the fact that Ramona brought Dorinda and Sonja Morgan to Long Island to help with her birthday party planning.
Dorinda was angry that Ramona wouldn’t include Sonja’s birthday in the planning and ignored all their suggestions. Ramona even forced them to appear in a social media photograph with the owner.
