RHONY Cast Talk Bethenny Frankel’s Return


The new season of the Real Housewives of New York City premieres April 7th on Bravo and the cast is speaking out about the return of veteran Housewife Bethenny Frankel.

“It’s changed because we’re now eight women,” Ramona Singer tells Wetpaint. “Bethenny hasn’t really interacted on a daily basis with myself, LuAnn [de Lesseps] or Sonja, and she definitely didn’t know the other four girls. What’s nice is I think you’ll see a true friendship and relationship evolve amongst us all. So it’ll be interesting to see who gets along with who, who gets into fights with who.”

Heather Thomson also dished that she has a lot in common with the Skinnygirl mogul, but teases whether or not she actually gets along with Frankel.

“It’s hard to say anything without giving away too much, but I can tell you we definitely do have a lot in common,” Heather Thomson says. “Whether that brings us together or pulls us apart, you gotta wait and see. It happens in life sometimes. The people that you think are going to get along the best don’t, and the people that you think aren’t going to get along actually do.”

Heather continues, “It’s really about true relationships. Either the girls are invested in their relationships with the other girls, or they’re not. It’s going to be apparent this year who’s in it for the relationships and who’s in it because they’re in it.”

Kristen Taekman says the cast was just getting warmed up last season and had a lot of fun filming season 7.

“I feel like we were just getting warmed up last year, and this year it’s a great group of girls and we do some fun stuff,” Kristen says.

“There’s a lot of tears and emotion, but real and authentic,” Carole Radziwill says. “But our relationships have all come to a point where we know who we like and who we don’t. Friendships, fights, and makeups. I think you get a little bit of everything. Overall it’s funny, we’re a very funny bunch.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
