Bravo trotted out its three newest “Real Housewives of New York” during Wednesday’s (April 4) “Watch What Happens Live All-Star Party” — journalist and author Carole Radziwill, fashion designer Heather Thomson and philanthropist Aviva Drescher — and a sneak peek at the new season of the franchise.
We already knew via the rumor mill about the new cast members replacing Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Cindy Barshop and Kelly Bensimon, but it’s the first time we’ve seen the ladies in action.
In the clip, one of the new women wonders aloud, “Do you think we’re part of the 1 percent?” While “Real Housewives” veteran Countess LuAnn de Lesseps — who capped off the “All-Star Party” with a live(ish) rendition of her song “Money Can’t Buy You Class” — asks cast mate and wine maven Ramona Singer, “What other dirty tricks do you have to pull out of your pinot-filled a–?”
Thomson promised “tons of drama, tons of excitement” for the season ahead. Wonder if that puts to rest any worries that the show will be dull without the old gang — the same worry people had perhaps when Bethenny Frankel left the show for her own spinoff?
Will you watch the new season?
