Everything You Need to Know Before the Season 9 Premiere of RHONY

Now is the time to catch up on all the drama.

As we enter into Season 9 of The Real Housewives of New York, it's important to catch up where we left off with the women. Of course, eight seasons of information is a lot, so let's start at Season 7, or ABR (After Bethenny's Return). Here are the important points you need to know:

1.  The other Housewives have had it with Sonja's partying and talk of her businesses.

Sonja Isn't Hearing What Bethenny Is Saying
When Bethenny Frankel tries to have a heart-to-heart with Sonja Morgan, Sonja won't let her have a word in.

Ramona, Carole and Luann downloaded Bethenny on everything she missed over the few years she wasn't around. The word "delusional" was thrown around when talking about Sonja. Bethenny wasn't sure what to make of these accusations, but after a few conversations with Sonja, Bethenny was in agreement with them.

Bethenny Doesn't Want Anything to Do with Sonja
After Sonja Morgan picks a familiar name for her Prosecco line, Bethenny is left feeling personally hurt.

The other major complaint in regards to Sonja was her behavior after a few drinks. Mid-way through Season 8, Sonja took a vow to stop drinking around the 'Wives, but something tells us that may not stick.

2.  Ramona is single but not saying who she wants to mingle with.

Thanks a Damn Lot!
Ramona Singer is beyond upset with Luann de Lesseps for bringing her name up to reporters.

Ramona and Mario are divorced, and Ramona is dating...we think. She rarely talks about who she's dating unless it's to tell other people not to talk about it. While there's nothing terribly wrong with keeping your love life private, it doesn't sit well with the other ladies.

3.  No one is a fan of Dorinda's boyfriend (except for Dorinda).

Is Dorinda Selling John to the Ladies?
When Bethenny Frankel raises concerns about John, Dorinda Medley gets very defensive.

Like Dorinda, John has a strong personality. Unfortunately for him, so do the other Housewives.

Don't Poke a Bear in the Zoo
John throws gasoline on an already heated argument when he accuses Bethenny Frankel of stealing her business' name.

4.  The same can be said for Luann's fiancé.

Luann's relationship with Tom has caused a few concerns for the other Housewives:

This Isn't the First Time We've Seen Tom
It turns out Luann de Lesseps' fiancé made his first appearance during Season 1...

1) He previously dated Ramona.

Sonja Shocks the Ladies
The ladies find out that Sonja Morgan knows Luann de Lesseps' fiancé very well.

2) He and Sonja were "friends with benefits" for many years.

Luann Confronts Tom Over the Photos
Luann de Lesseps wants to get to the bottom of the rumor, but Tom doesn’t have a lot of answers.

3) Bethenny discovered he was making out with another woman shortly after proposing to Luann.

With so many issues wrapped up in their romance, it's no wonder this will be a big part of Season 9.

5.  Things ended on a sour note for Sonja and Dorinda.

I'm Not Here to Ruin People's Lives
Bethenny Frankel chooses not to elaborate on a particular rumor involving Dorinda Medley.

Sonja and Dorinda have never been particularly close, but things went south during Season 8 when Dorinda disinvited Sonja from the Berkshires. The anger and resentment that caused blew up at the reunion when Sonja made a pretty shocking accusation. 

We'll see how all of these things play out when RHONY returns April 5 at 9/8c.
