Real Housewives of New York

Heather Thomson Ramona Singer Real Housewives Of New York

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.

Luann de Lesseps

Luann de Lesseps catches a lot of flack for her mentions of the cabaret on Real Housewives of New York. She has had no problem sharing her excitement for achieving a lifelong dream of hers.

Of course, she has to thank the Real Housewives of New York fans for supporting this dream and attending her shows, but reality TV wasn’t her first stint in entertainment. Before she became a Real Housewife of New York, Luann was an Italian television star. And, at another point in her life, she was actually working as a registered nurse. That’s quite the mix there.

Since no one is going to a cabaret anytime soon thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, Luann has revisited her old profession. And, no, she’s not making cameo appearances on Italian television. She’s actually helping out someone in need by applying her nursing experience.

Leah McSweeney Real Housewives Of New York

Wowowowow. These Real Housewives of New York reunion episodes are already making me question if I can live without these ladies in the coming months. I mean, except for Elyse Slaine who, despite her best efforts, was a total bust. Rest easy. She won’t be back.

After Bethenny Frankel dipped the night before filming for season 12 began, I think we’re all on edge about next year. So far we know that Dorinda Medley is “taking a pause.” Whatever that means. Better yet, Leah McSweeney will be returning. She may have secured a well-deserved pay raise too. From the sounds of it, we will be seeing her for season 13 with some heavy pockets and…a new face?

Elyse Slaine Real Housewives Of New York

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.”

RHOA - NeNe Leakes

Aaaand that’s a wrap, again, for Nene Leakes. This icon is taking yet another leave from Real Housewives of Atlanta. We had expected it for a while. And there are already rumors swirling about new Housewives this coming season. But now it’s official.

Garcelle Beauvais is already trying to have Nene swap over to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills franchise. She’s not the only Bravo-leb who’s been reaching out to Nene lately either.

Denise Richards Charlie Sheen

The news of Denise Richards leaving the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is still fresh. But I don’t think anyone is truly surprised. Denise spent the entire season defending herself. Against what exactly?

Well, for starters, the women of RHOBH picked on Denise incessantly for not wanting to talk about threesomes in front of her kids. When that didn’t land, the ladies moved on to endless speculation about Denise’s relationship with Brandi Glanville. In my humble opinion, whether Denise slept with Brandi is neither here nor there. The real issue is why the women are so bothered by it. And I will never forgive Lisa Rinna for turning on her friend of 20+ years all because Brandi needs to stay relevant.

Bershan Shaw

Real Housewives of New York is coming off a pretty uneventful season. Aside from partying and drinking, we couldn’t point to much of a storyline outside of Dorinda Medley attacking Tinsley Mortimer. Oh and the revelation that Sonja Morgan doesn’t shave her p**sy. Mark my words, a drunken Sonja randomly yelling about her vag in the midst of a perfectly respectable party will go down in housewives history.

Let’s just say the offseason was way more interesting than the season itself thanks to major cast shakeups. Bethenny Frankel’s exit left a big hole in the cast and opened the door for newbie, Leah McSweeney. Love her or hate her, we have to admit that she brought it. Tiki torches are still shook. Also, Tinsley left the show mid-season to pursue her fairy tale with on-again-off-again boyfriend Scott Kluth. Dorinda was fired once the season was over.

Barbara Kavovit Real Housewives Of New York

After one season as a part-time cast member, Barbara Kavovit disappeared from Real Housewives of New York. However, that hasn’t stopped her from sharing her opinions on the cast members, past and present.

We all know about her falling out with Luann de Lesseps, the person who “brought” her onto the show. But, she also has negative things to say about some of the other New York Housewives.
