RHONY Season 12 Will Be Hotter & More Outrageous Than Ever: Here's Proof

Birthday suits, face paint, bedazzled jackets and lots of feathers — here's what's to come in the fierce new season of RHONY.

By Talia Ergas
Your First Look at Season 12 of The Real Housewives of New York City Is Here!

Everybody mark your calendars: The Real Housewives of New York City Season 12 premieres Thursday, April 2, at 9/8c on Bravo! When Dorinda Medley, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Luann de Lesseps, and Tinsley Mortimer return to our screens, joined by new cast member Leah McSweeney, things are going to get wild.

How to Watch

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

We've always known that the ladies of the Big Apple love an excuse to go all out with their outfits — and especially their costumes. May we remind you of a certain iconic Halloween in which Dorinda went full Lady Gaga in an epic bubble suit, and Ramona was a perfect replica of an Oops... I Did It Again-era Britney Spears? Or how about when the entire cast got way into character for a delightfully glamorous 1920s-themed murder mystery party in the Berkshires? And who could forget the seemingly endless list of glittering, floor-skimming, colorful gowns that make up Luann's cabaret show wardrobe?

In the RHONY Season 12 trailer (watch the video above!), the women bring their outfit A-game once again, and this year might even be the most epic yet. Need proof? Here's what's to come...

More Jovani

Did you really think we could do a season of RHONY without the glittering fashions from this Housewife-loved label? Luann's bedazzled bomber jacket is just a taste of what's to come.

Sonja being Sonja

Our beloved Sonja gets on a tabletop and stamps and shatters a glass tray, all while wearing a dazzling, curve-hugging sparkle midi-dress and either a giant sheet of crumpled paper or the world's wildest white hat — who could ask for more?

Tinsley crying in costume... again

Possibly the most memed moment of RHONY Season 11 was a giant bow-clad Tinsley, crying at the circus while tears streamed down her pink-painted cheeks. This season, get ready for a sobbing Tinsley sporting a towering crown atop her head.
