They're baaaack!

The Real Housewives of New York City returns March 11, but Bravo just gave us a sneak peek of what's to come, and let's just say it looks like it's gonna be the craziest season yet!

The ladies are joined by new cast mate Kristen Taekman, a mom-of-two who created a line of high-end greeting cards. Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, Aviva Drescher, Carole Radziwell and Heather Thompson all returned for another round of drama. Although not a series regular this season, Countess Luann de Lesseps will appear in a recurring role.

"They mix business with pleasure, party like rock stars, summer in the Hamptons and allow their emotions to get the best of them," the clip teases.

We can't wait for the fur to fly!

REPORT: Real Housewives Now Making $500,000 A Season

Oct 6, 2011 03:50 PM


The remaining cast members of Bravo's The Real Housewives of New York will make more money from the show next season ... thanks to their cast mates getting the boot!

Because Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon, Cindy Barshop and Alex McCord were let go from the cast last month, veterans LuAnn de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer are seeing their salaries jump from $275,000 a season to $500,000 a season for Season Five, says The New York Post.

Things have changed since the early seasons, when the women were making just $7,500 per season.

The Post says that, because women like Zarin, who had been on the cast since Season One, are gone, Bravo has more money in its budget to increase the salaries of Lesseps, Morgan and Singer. The new cast members, as rookies, will only make about $5,000 an episode to start.

Now they really don't have an excuse to be bankrupt (Sonja!)

REPORT: New Real Housewives Of New York Cast Has Ties To The Kennedys

Sep 21, 2011 01:55 PM


Bravo confirmed over the weekend that Real Housewives of New York's Jill Zarin, Cindy Barshop, Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon had been fired from the show.

Rumors had it that the network wanted the show to have more glitz and less bickering.

Now, The New York Daily News is reporting who will replace the four, joining LuAnn de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer.

According to the paper, author/news producer Carole Radziwill, fashion designer Heather Thomson and philanthropist Aviva Drescher are the newest housewives.

Radziwill, who used to work for ABC, will be the show's "single girl" with famous roots. She lost her husband to cancer in 1999; only a month earlier, her close friends, Carolyn-Bessette Kennedy and John F. Kennedy Jr., were killed in a plane crash. Her mother, Lee, is the younger sister of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

Drescher has three children with her banker husband, making her the "Wall Street wife." Thomson's shapewear business has made her wealthy -- she's a married mom of two.

Bravo would not confirm the new cast, saying only, "We haven't made any announcements regarding new ladies at this time."

The network's statement:

    "Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan and LuAnn DeLesseps will be returning for season 5 of The Real Housewives of New York City.

McCord (right) started a Facebook campaign last week to keep herself on the show -- clearly, it didn't work. She Tweeted on Saturday, " ... a decision has been reached. @SimonvanKempen & I are leaving #RHONY, sadly but amicably."

Said Zarin: "When one door closes..another one opens."

According to our X17online.com poll, 23 percent of our readers said they would not watch the show without the departing cast members, while 36 percent said Bravo made the right decision because the show needs some fresh faces.

Real Housewives of New York's Sonja Morgan Could Lose Her $6 Million Townhouse

Jul 5, 2011 03:00 PM

SonjaMorganBankrupt230.jpgThe Real Housewives of New York's Sonja Morgan might lose her $6 million home ... making her not much of a "housewife" at all.

Morgan's bankruptcy struggle has been detailed in the current season of Bravo's show. She filed in November of last year, citing $19.8 million in debt and $13.5 million in assets. Morgan, 47, is currently in a court battle with her ex, John Adams Morgan, 80, over a $3 million divorce settlement.

She now might be forced out of her $6 million New York City townhouse, reports E! News.

Morgan said on the show that she lost money after a movie investment deal went bad. Adams Morgan, the great grandson of financier J.P. Morgan, claims he was already forced to pay more than was listed in his prenuptial agreement.

A source tells E!:

    " ... he's not giving her a cent more and she's now more than $7 million in the hole. She's in denial, it's only just started to hit her how much trouble she's in. She makes $275,000 a year on Housewives, which would be good for anyone else but it won't save her."

Sonja joins a growing list of "housewives" who have met financial struggle while on the show ... see who else after the jump.
