Throwback Thursday: Return to Scary Island!

This RHONY Season 3 trip had enough crazy to make anyone homesick.

By Pat Cauley

Every Thursday, celebrate #TBT with us as we open the vault to share photos of Bravolebrities before they were famous--or revisit memorable moments from our shows. This week, in honor of the new season announcement of Real Housewives of New York City, we dare to go back to Scary Island.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New York City on Peacock and catch up on the Bravo app

Let’s be honest, there’s nothing we love more than when the Housewives leave their respective city behind to get away from it all. Ironically, they normally need to get away from each other, which is why the happenings on these group vacations make for some of the best moments in Housewives history.

This notion was never so true as when our favorite Big Apple ladies jet set to St. John, now infamously known to RHONY fans as Scary Island. What’s so scary about the Virgin Islands you ask? In this classic season 3 throwback, what starts with Kelly Bensimon critiquing Alex McCord’s beachfront photo shoot tailspins into a troublesome rant engulfing all of the ‘Wives into a web of confusion and concern.


Arguably the best moment is when Ramona Singer approaches the confrontation wide-eyed in disbelief while effortlessly putting out her hand to receive a faithful Pinot Grigio refill from one of the hired hands (scan forward to the 1:45 mark). Even with Kelly seemingly loosing her grip on reality in front of their very eyes, some things never change.

Start spreading the news! The new season of RHONY premieres March 11, at 9/8c. Watch a preview clip below:
