We're ridiculously excited for the return of the Real Housewives of New York City—so much so that we've been re-watching our 5 favorite clips over and over from Season 5. Perhaps no group of women are quicker or wittier with their comebacks than Sonja, LuAnn, Ramona, Heather, Aviva, and Carole—they are New Yorkers after all. As we gear up for the Season 6 premiere (tune in March 11 at 9/8c), we've revisited some of our favorite comebacks from the RHONY gals. New Housewife Kristen Taekman may want to take notes.
Aviva Disses Ramona's Drinking Habits
Aviva had admitted she had a tough time being away from her husband Reid, but when she and Ramona came together for lunch, Ramona called her out on her dependency. Turns out, Aviva thought Ramona had dependency issues of her own: "You can't be without alcohol."
Ramona Says Sonja Is "Coma Toast"
During their epic vacation to St. Barths, Ramona and Sonja had a bit of fun one late night. Maybe too much fun. The next morning, Sonja looked a bit worse for the wear, prompting Ramona to say "she's coma toast." Sounds like Ramona was "coma toast" too.
Carole and LuAnn Tiff Over American Indians, Darling
While out to dinner with the group, Carole and LuAnn got into a spat over the correct usage of Native American and Indian. Carole's argument: "No one says Indian anymore because it's politically incorrect." But LuAnn disagreed: "Well, nobody uses darling anymore, but I still use it but guess I can because I'm Indian." We suppose we'd follow that logic too after a few glasses of wine.
LuAnn and Ramona's Face-Off in the Park
Tensions between LuAnn and Ramona had been brewing for months: LuAnn believed Ramona was talking negatively about her children and had threatened her. So when they came face-to-face in Central Park to talk out their issues, LuAnn had enough with her lies: "What other tricks do you have to pull out of your pinot-filled hat?"
Sonja Morgan's Nipplegate
St. Barth's brought out wild behavior in the 'Wives—particularly Sonja. After a few martinis, she went skinny dipping in the pool—much to the chagrin of Heather Thomson: "I saw Heather's nipples and vagina so much on that trip, I thought I should start petting and feeding them."
Speaking of comebacks, tonight's Olympic games in Sochi will mark the return of one of America's great hopefuls: Noelle Pikus-Pace. The skeleton rider famously retired after the 2010 Vancouver Olympics because she wanted to spend more time with her family. But after suffering a tragic miscarriage, she made the decision to compete again—so long as her family could travel by her side. She's making her return to competition this year. Watch her compete when the Olympics air on NBC during primetime tonight at 8/7c and get familiar with her incredible story once more.
