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.
What a trip Tinsley Mortimer has been on The Real Housewives of New York City. The spoiled little rich girl entered the scene looking for one thing. She was desperate for a husband and a baby. Tinsley may have found at least one of those things thanks to Scott Kluth. Tinsley better thank Carole Radziwill for that one. The two have been so on again and off again over the years, but they’re finally engaged!
Will they truly walk down the aisle? Can Tinsley and Scott stay together long enough to make it to the wedding? Given their history, it’s a fair assumption to think it won’t happen. The relationship has played out on the show, so naturally, her costars have an opinion about this. However, nobody may be more opinionated than Ramona Singer, and she has A LOT to say about it.
If you haven’t binged on Love is Blind on Netflix, I have no idea what you’re waiting for. I watched back to back episodes over the course of three days. I don’t know if I’ve ever gone through a series that fast. Not even past seasons of Real Housewives on Hulu kept me at such rapt attention.
With that said, I do have a bit of a Love is Blind hangover. Meaning, I had too much of it but somehow, getting more is the only way I’m going to feel better. You know, like the hair of the dog. Maybe that sounds dramatic. But, you are talking to someone who just admitted to dedicating three days to one TV show. Moderation is not my strong suit.
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.
The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 reunion was famous for the Bethenny Frankel vs. Carole Radziwill feud. At one point, Bethenny went on and on about Carole ditching her for Tinsley Mortimer and traveling around the world together.
In response, Carole threw Tinsley under the bus, clarifying that they weren’t actually close. And, obviously, Tinsley seemed hurt and surprised. Since then, Carole claimed that no one on the show ever wanted to film with Tins. Clearly, there’s no love lost there.
Everyone was shocked when Bethenny Frankel announced in August of 2018 that she was done with Real Housewives of New York. It turns out that before Bethenny’s departure, there were some casting changes in the works, and the skinnygirl mogul had a role in it.
In November at BravoCon, Leah McSweeney was introduced as the newest RHONY cast member. Leah is a businesswoman with her own clothing line, Married to the Mob. She also hosts a podcast, Improper Etiquette, and writes a monthly column for Penthouse Magazine.
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.
Who would have thought that Carole Radiziwill setting Tinsley Mortimer up for an on-camera date for
a storyline Real Housewives of New York would result in an engagement? Of course, the story isn’t that simple.
Tinsley and Scott Kluth broke up more times than I can count. They struggled to maintain a long-distance relationship with Scott living in Chicago while Tinsley films RHONY in the Big Apple. Tinsley spent seasons talking about how she wants to get engaged and have a baby and now she finally has that rock. I’m sure her mother Dale Mercer is thrilled, but what does Carole Radiziwill think about the engagement?
