The ladies of The Real Housewives of New York City always bring their A-game on cast trips, and this season's Miami vacay was no different. From dramatic meltdowns to dinner blow ups, every second was pure gold. But what happens to the moments that didn't make it on air? Luckily for us, the ladies and the RHONY producers spilled the beans about all the juicy moments we didn't get to see, as well as the inside scoop on what the ladies are really like on trips.
Read on to find out the behind-the-scenes info we wish had made it on screen, and tune in Thursday July 4 at 8/7c for even more secrets from the cast in the "Behind the Episode" special!
1. Outfit Changes
With a group this fabulous, we anticipated the ladies would have a number of outfit changes prepped. But can you guess who is infamous for changing their clothes the most throughout the day? According to producers, Ramona and Tinsley take the prize for most changes every day.
2. Homesick Cast
These trips can be exhausting, so it's no wonder some of the ladies get a little homesick. Of them all, producers think Bethenny seemed the most homesick, "but only because of her daughter." Bethenny is also the cast member who threatens to go home the most on trips, so this one makes sense.
3. Marry, Shag, Kill
As the newbie in the cast, we wondered how Barbara felt after living with the other ladies. We played a game of "Marry, Shag, Kill" with her, and had her choose between Ramona, Sonja, and Bethenny. Barbara answered, "Marry Bethenny, Shag Sonja, Kill Ramona." We guess Bethenny and Barbara's makeout session really left an impression!
4. Getting Ready
We know how important glam sessions are to all of the ladies, but who takes the longest to get ready? According to Ramona, Carole used to take the longest. Now, she thinks they're all pretty quick – except for Tinsley.
5. Luann's Beach Visit
While the rest of the cast comforted a distraught Sonja, Luann decided to take a quick jaunt down to the beach. Were you wondering how long she was there? According to producers, she stayed for over two hours. She then went to find her cabaret poster, which she admired for about 5-10 minutes. Production says a few people recognized her there!
6. The Fight
Were you curious how producers felt when Bethenny went off on Luann? Well, they admit they've "NEVER" seen Bethenny that mad. "It was next level." They could see her pain during the fight and knew she "wasn't really healed from losing Dennis." Producers were so worried Bethenny was going to have a heart attack that they were "prepared to call an EMT."
