Tonight Bravo teased the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New York with a half-hour sneak-peak. They did this because they are evil geniuses and they know what it takes to suck us in. That's the promise of blood, loose teeth, an abandoned prosthetic leg, and all the crazy eyes Ramona Singer can muster. You guys. That is a lot of crazy eyes. Ramona girl, to steal from your own infamous battle with Aviva Drescher -- TAKE A XANAX.
I don't know about you, but I'm totally psyched for the addition of Kristen Taekman. Nothing like a hot model to set all the other wives' teeth to gnashin', amiright? But just because she's gorgeous, doesn't mean she's got it easy (or so I tell myself). This season looks to track not just her waning modeling career, but also her marital strife. I know looks aren't everything, but when her husband appeared on screen I maybe turned to my roommate and said, "So. Like. He's gotta be funny, right?"
It will be curious to see just how much of Ramona Singer's current divorce woes make it into the final cut of the season. The Housewives franchises are pretty diligent when it comes to incorporating awkward and awful events in the personal lives of the cast -- just look at Sonja Morgan's divorce turmoil and her total personal meltdown. Or maybe don't.
It looks like they're going to be more focused on how Ramona copes with her daughter Avery going off to college. Spoiler alert: Her coping involves the pouring of copious glasses of her eponymous pinot. Surprise nobody! It looks like it's going to be a strong season and I can't wait for March to get here. I think I can safely say that this is the only franchise that used a plastic body party as a button on their season's promotional trailer -- and that's just further incentive to tune in.
Are you pumped for the new season of RHONY?
