Real Housewives Of New York Leah McSweeney

The Real Housewives Of New York are back with a vengeance! Except for Bethenny Frankel. That B is outta the picture… Well, not entirely. The episode opens with the ladies reacting to the news that Bethenny has quit. For some this is a blessing; a ripping off of the bandaid to reveal fresh, chemical peeled skin. That would be fellow veterans Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps feelings.

For others who were in Bethenny’s Skinnygirl denim hip pocket, they’re sad to see her backside. That would be Sonja Morgan and Dorinda Medley. Sonja, who wants to hoard everything in her emotional basement of horrors – including toxic friendships, is mourning being abandoned.

So that’s that – end of an era until the next time Bethenny needs a career boost! Real talk though: Thank you Bethenny for donating during the coronavirus crisis. A + for B strong.

Real Housewives of New York is finally back! Tonight, Season 12 begins and we are all so ready for this.

We get to “meet” the new Housewife Leah McSweeney. We also see Elyse Slaine, Ramona Singer’s friend, who didn’t get that full-time cast member slot.

Leah McSweeney Real Housewives of New York city RHONY

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.

Aviva Drescher Says Her Son Was Teased After Harry Dobin Made Out With Ramona Singer; Says Harry Dated Kelly Bensimon

Who could ever forget those photos of Ramona Singer making out with Harry Dubin? This is after he dated Sonja Morgan, did whatever with Luann de Lesseps, and was married to Real Housewives of New York alum Aviva Drescher.

The man is a hit among the RHONY ladies, for some inexplicable reason.

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.

Margaret Ramona

Are there any Bravolebrities that have something nice to say about Ramona Singer? She has rubbed plenty of people the wrong way from Dolores Catania to Gizelle Bryant to Mercedes Javid. The list goes on and on.

And now we can add Margaret Josephs to the list. She is not a fan of Ramona’s antics.

Bethenny Frankel

When you think of women who have used Real Housewives as a platform to launch their businesses, Bethenny Frankel breaks the mold. Well, Bethenny made the mold, broke it, and continued to broaden her success.

As much as I’ll miss watching Bethenny shade her frenemies and make business phone calls from the back of her car, I will not miss the constant influx of Skinnygirl promotion on Real Housewives of New York. As we know, Bethenny announced her departure from RHONY in August right before the cast started filming Season 12. Ramona Singer even claimed that Bethenny didn’t even tell the cast themselves and that they all found out through the press. Rumors ran rampant that B left the show after demanding a salary increase. However, let’s be honest: she has plenty of money. At least by my standards, anyway. Recently, Bethenny slammed the reports that she left over a payback. Oh, and she threw major shade at the show that made her famous. Again.

We finally have a trailer for Real Housewives of New York Season 12. In a time when some Real Housewives shows are falling flat while others are far less fun, the New York ladies are on their way to entertain us all.

However, Bethenny Frankel is out of the picture for this season. “Replacing” Bethenny is Leah McSweeney, which was officially announced at BravoCon in November.
