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

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

By Megan Segura
1-Minute Recap: Season 8 of RHONY

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:

How to Watch

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

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

Sonja Isn't Hearing What Bethenny Is Saying

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

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 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?

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

Don't Poke a Bear in the Zoo

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

1) He previously dated Ramona.

Sonja Shocks the Ladies

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

Luann Confronts Tom Over the Photos

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

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.
