The Real Housewives of New York City premiered March 4, 2008 on Bravo. While in pre-production, the series was initially titled Manhattan Moms but, following the success of The Real Housewives of Orange County, New York City became the second installment in the Housewives franchise. The series documents the lives of several high society Big Apple women and their families as they navigate the business world, summer in the Hamptons, and allow their emotions to get the best of them any chance they get.
Among the distinguished cast of RHONY have been European royalty, models, fashion industry moguls and authors. Original New York City Housewife Bethenny Frankel utilized her reality stardom to launch a hugely successful spirits line, the now-ubiquitous Skinny Girl empire, as well as the first-ever Housewives spinoff series, Bethenny Getting Married (later Bethenny Ever After) and her own talk show. Many subsequent Housewives throughout the franchise have tried to mimic her trajectory, with varying degrees of success.

It’s turtle time, RHONY fans! The Real Housewives of New York City are returning for Season 7 and it looks like we’ll all need to keep plenty of Pinot Grigio on hand for this one.

For a while now, there’s been talk of Bethenny Frankel making a return to The Real Housewives of New York City for Season 7. To be honest, I didn’t really think it would happen. Bethenny already made it big with her Skinny Girl cocktail line and seemed to have moved on to things other than reality TV. But, apparently, after […]
So, Season 6 wasn’t great for The Real Housewives of New York City. Not that I, as a fan, didn’t enjoy last season, it just didn’t seem to resonate with viewers as much as I’m sure Bravo would have preferred. RHOC Season 6 clocked in with an average of 1,291,391 viewers per episode overall and, while this is certainly a respectable number […]

With The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 premiere now only days away I, of course, had to see if there were any teasers of the premiere episode available.

It seems another Housewives marriage is over. As of Monday, Ramona and Mario Singer announced they had separated, following a domestic dispute at their Hamptons home just past weekend. Today, Ramona has reportedly filed divorce papers with the Manhattan Supreme Court. Ramona’s husband of 22 years found his way into the tabloids in October of last year amidst rumors that […]
