"The Real Housewives of New York" is finally back after almost a year-and-a-half on hiatus, and there's plenty to catch up on (Season 6 premieres Tuesday, March 11 at 9 p.m. on Bravo).
First is the replacement of original housewife LuAnn "The Countess" de Lesseps, also known as the auto-tuned voice behind "Money Can't Buy You Class." (Elegance is learned, my friends.) LuAnn will only be a recurring castmember now; newcomer Kristen Taekman, a former model and wife and mom to two young children, will be stepping in to take her place. And then there's the matter of the last remaining original New York housewife Ramona Singer and her nasty public divorce from husband Mario.
You can believe the tabloids all you want, but Yahoo TV got teases about the new season straight from the ladies themselves... well, at least most of them. Ramona, Kristen, Heather Thomson, and Sonja Morgan all gave us three words to best describe this season and why.
Sadly, truth-tellers Carole Radziwill and Aviva Drescher (whose prosthetic leg gets quite a stand-out moment in the season's teaser trailer, below) did not chime in. Is there something these ladies are sugar-coating that Carole and Aviva refuse to lie about? Or have the battle lines already clearly been drawn? We'll find out.
Give us three words to describe Season 6:
"Electric: Such energy going on between all of us. It could blow a fuse. Captivating: We do so many great things and share such great moments and events. Of course let's not forget the craziness of all the different disagreements we have with each other. And addictive: This season is going to be one of our best seasons ever and the audience will not be able to get enough of us."
"Laughter: It heals you from the inside out and brings almost everyone together. Conflict: It is sometimes unavoidable. You must stand up for what you believe in. You must demand truth. And eye-opening: Just when I think I have seen it all, someone acts in a way that opens my eyes to a new possibility or a new reality."
"Shake: lots of shaking in our boots! We also got to dance a lot and let loose. Rattle: A lot of cages were rattled and feathers were fluffed. And roll: You just have to roll with the punches. Literally."
"180 Degrees: This season is a turnaround for the new girls. Obnoxious: Some of the comments are really out of line! And hilarious: New Yorkers are the funniest!"
