The Real Housewives of New York City follows the busy lives of a group of driven and ambitious Manhattan women as they juggle their demanding careers and motherhood and navigate the wonderful world of jam-packed social calendars, children and city life.
This season, Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer welcome Aviva Drescher, Carole Radziwill and Heather Thomson as they navigate their hectic lifestyles of jam-packed social calendars, careers, children and city living.
In the season five premiere, 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."
The Real Housewives of New York City is produced by Shed Media U.S. Jennifer O'Connell, Nick Emmerson and Omid Kahangi serve as executive producers.
