The Real Housewives Of New York City season 5 is set to premiere on June 4, Monday night, featuring new cast-members!
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. New York is the second city featured in The Real Housewives franchise. While in production for Season 1, the show was tentatively titled Manhattan Moms.
Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Kelly Bensimon and Cindy Barshop would not be returning for season 5 which is expected to air June 4, 2012 at 9/8c with new cast members Heather Thomson, Carole Radziwill and Aviva Drescher taking their places.
In the season five premiere titled “A New New York,” Sonja kicks things off with a party to mingle with Aviva, Carole and Heather. They all seem to hit it off… until Ramona arrives. And as they say, with new friends come new revelations: in this case, Aviva learns that a couple of her “new” friends have had relations with her ex-husband. Meanwhile, Heather and Carole try to figure out who to trust and not. Picking up right where they left off, LuAnn is still annoyed with Ramona about the disparaging comments she made last season about LuAnn’s parenting. Things get interesting as Sonja, Ramona, Heather, and Aviva head to the Hamptons for the weekend and once back in the city, LuAnn surprises the new ladies with a shocking story. The three new women agree to never become “mean girls.”
