The Real Housewives of New York are back for season 12! Ugh RHONY episodes are like a big tequila induced warm hug. Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer and newbie Leah McSweeney are bringing belly laughs and just fun times to Bravo. With Bethenny not returning, RHONY will be seeing a drastic change. The trailer shows a fun season ahead which might be best since last season we’ve dealt with some really dark issues (Dennis’ death + LuAnn’s sobriety). Here are 8 things we learned from the trailer.
RIP Fish Room
The iconic Fish Room has been remodelled. I was hoping the Berkshires house would become a museum and I would bring my children there and explain to them this is where they put LuAnn to sleep after her arrest. You will be miss baby sharks.
Sonja: The Hot Mess That Keeps Giving
Sonja Morgan is a grade A housewife because she always unapologetically herself. She brings high level comedy you can’t find anywhere else on television. Don’t ever change!
Tinsley Does Move to Chicago
Die hards know that Tinsley dips out halfway through the season and moves to Chicago to be with Scott. Curious to see how much Tinsley we will see. It’s unfortunate timing because last season was Tins’ best season. I don’t know how many times I screamed at a bar “YEAH I’M DRINKING LUANN”. We will miss you Tinsley.
The New Girl Can Hang
No one will ever replace Bethenny Frankel but it seems like Leah is making a place for herself. She giving me Mob Wives energy ripping her coat off after Dorinda gets in her face. Excited to see what she brings to the mix.
Friend Of Looks Promising
“Friends of” are really bringing it on other franchises (Marlo, Katie Rost) so Elyse Slaine really has a chance to make a place for herself on Bravo unlike Barb from the Bronz last season. She is seen in many group events and Sonja gets in her face screaming “I WAS NEVER A TROPHY WIFE” so we love a friend that brings the dramz.
LuAnn Is Drinking Again
True fanatics know that Lu has said she is now drinking responsible. I can’t wait to see Ramona shade her for this all season long. It was interesting to see very minimal mention of the cabaret. Either way, excited to hopefully see Lu fall in the bushes again.
Dorinda VS Everyone.
It seems like Dorinda is the center of the drama. Online reports say she feuds with Tinsley and in the trailer we saw her square off with newbie Leah, rip into Ramona and push LuAnn out of the door! While it seems like there is a deeper, darker issue facing Dorinda, I hope to see how she comes out of it. Dorinda is one the best housewives because she lays it all out there, the good, the bad, the drunk and the ugly. QUEEN, WE STAN!
I feel like my heart is fulfilled and happy when RHONY is back, it’s like a warm big hug. I do think it will be a lot less heavy drama and much more drunken antics which I am ALL THE WAY HERE FOR.
