The Real Housewives of New York City is an American reality television series - the second in the "Real Housewives of..." franchise - which follows the lives of relatively affluent, bourgeois housewives and professional women in New York City.

The series features an elite and powerful set of New York socialites as they juggle their careers and home lives with busy calendars packed with charity fund-raising galas, the social whirl of the Hamptons, and interviews for elite private schools.

These driven and ambitious women show everyone what it takes to make it in the upper echelon of society, where money and status are an essential way of life.

The series takes an up-close and personal look at a lifestyle where private chefs, Au Pairs, front row seats at Fashion Week and Hamptons estates are part of everyday life.

The Real Housewives of New York City follows five glamorous Manhattan women - Alex, Bethenny, Jill, LuAnn and Ramona - as they balance motherhood, demanding careers, and a fast-paced social calendar, and shows what life is like in the most exclusive areas of New York.

In the second season Alex, Bethenny, Jill, Luann and Ramona, along with new cast member Kelly Killoren Bensimon continue to juggle their careers and home lives with busy calendars packed with charity fund-raising galas, the social whirl of the Hamptons and nights on the New York social scene.

The third season features two new recurring women, Sonja Morgan and Jennifer Gilbert. Morgan was promoted to series regular in Season 4, along with new housewife Cindy Barshop.

Three new cast regulars - Aviva Drescher, Carole Radziwill and Heather Thomson - were added in Season 5 and they were joined by model and businesswoman Kristen Taekman in Season 6. Luann dropped down to recurring for Season 6 but returned as regular in Season 7.

Aviva left after two seasons and Bethenny Frankel returned in Season 7, along with new housewife Dorinda Medley.

The Real Housewives of New York City is produced by Shed Media U.S. Jennifer O'Connell, Matt Anderson and Nick Emmerson serve as executive producers.
