The ladies of New York City are back! Ahead of the hit Bravo reality series’ Season 7 premiere, the network has released the first trailer of the next "The Real Housewives of New York City" installment. With the return of Bethenny Frankel and a new housewife, the trailer -- as expected -- promises plenty of drama this season.
Following a three-season hiatus, Skinny Girl mogul and failed talk show host Frankel will return to the “Real Housewives” franchise. In between catfights with the ladies and look at her infamous digs, her starring role in the tailer reveals that she will be struggling with the loss of her marriage to businessman Jason Hoppy this season.
“It’s like starting over. Failed talk show. Failed marriage,” Frankel tells a therapist in the promo via Us Weekly. “My divorce has made me a vulnerable person.”
She is later shown breaking down in the back seat of a car. “I don’t want my same life back. I want a new life,” a teary-eyed Frankel tells an unidentified friend.
While it appears this year will be an emotional one for Frankel and her fellow newly divorced housewife Ramona Singer — “I want to fix him so badly,” Ramona cries of her ex-husband Mario in the trailer — there will also be some much-needed laughs and new faces. Following the boot of Aviva Drescher, one newcomer has been be added to the Season 7 mix.
From what we can gather in the trailer, new "RHONY" star Dorinda Medley is a single Manhattan sociliate and self-classified “chubby chaser.” Like her co-stars, she also appears to know how to have a good time. “Where there is a vagina involved with men, there could always slip-ups. And I don’t like slip-ups,” Dorinda quips in the trailer.
The 50-year-old widow— she has a 21-year-old daughter named Hannah — will also have a feud with Kristen Taekman this season. “You made me look like an a—! Don’t do that s—t!” Dorinda yells at Kristen in the trailer.
“There’s a new biatch in the house,” housewife Sonja Morgan says of the newcomer.
Season 7 will also see the return of Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson and LuAnn de Lesseps. Catch the new season of “The Real Housewives of New York City” Tuesday, April 7, at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
