About RHONY

 

The Real Housewives of New York City is an American reality television program on the Bravo cable TV network. A spin-off of the Bravo series The Real Housewives of Orange County, it is the second city featured in The Real Housewives of… franchise. It was tentatively titled “Manhattan Moms” while in production for Season 1.

The first season premiered March 4, 2008 and starred Bethenny FrankelLuAnn de LessepsAlex McCordRamona Singer, and Jill Zarin. Contrary to the series title, the women featured were not all actually housewives. Frankel was unmarried and had her own business, and McCord, Singer, and Zarin all had jobs outside the home. Singer owned her own business.  The series was renewed for a second season and premiered February 17, 2009, adding a sixth “housewife”, Kelly Killoren Bensimon.

The third season premiered on March 4, 2010. Sonja Morgan, the show’s newest housewife, joined the cast in the seventh episode of season 3. The third season reunion was filmed on May 26, 2010 and was aired as a three-part special. Event planner Jennifer Gilbert joined the cast, but her appearances were extremely limited and she was not featured as one of the housewives in the show’s trademark open, which features each woman with her name on-screen. Season 4 has been announced and filming began in late September 2010. Singer confirmed that Cindy Barshop will be joining the cast and will be Frankel’s replacement.[1] Season 4 is slated to premiere on February 15, 2011 on Bravo.
