Since its premiere on March 4, 2008, Bravo’s reality TV juggernaut ‘The Real Housewives of New York City,’ AKA ‘RHONY,’ has been climbing up to the top of the ladder owing to its ever-increasing popularity. The show encircles the lives of a bunch of high society socialites in New York City, as they attend social engagements, fulfill professional commitments and also take some personal time out for themselves and their loved ones. It’s not a bed of roses, obviously.
For 11 seasons, the show has been delivering belligerent barroom-brawls, pointless vacations, and hot tea-sharing sessions, but its great off-screen chemistry is what makes the show, an interesting watch. Now fans must be wondering about the release date and other details of ‘The Real Housewives of New York City’ season 12. Well, we have got you covered. Read on.

The Real Housewives of New York City Season 12 Cast: Who is in it?
On August 21, 2019, Bethany Frankel announced her departure from the show. In a statement, Frankel said, “I have decided to leave the ‘Housewives’ franchise to explore my next chapter. It’s time to move on and focus on my daughter, my philanthropy and my production partnership with Mark Burnett, producing and starring in shows which represent a shift in the conversation for women.”
Following Frankel’s exit, the latest contestant to join the show is Leah McSweeney, the founder and CEO of a fashion line for women – Married to the Mob. Leah has also appeared in ‘The Millionaire Matchmaker’ and ‘Love & Hip Hop: New York.’
The returning cast members include Dorinda Medley, Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, and Tinsley Mortimer.
What can The Real Housewives of New York City Season 12 be About?
In the season 11 finale, Ramona plans a surprise party for Dorinda and Sonja to prevent them from going to Luann’s cabaret show. But the ladies – Dorinda, Tinsley, and Sonja go to meet Luann before her show, who naturally gets upset. At Ramona’s surprise party for her pals, Dorinda, Ramona, and Sonja accuse Tinsley of having a financial arrangement with her man, Scott, causing her to leave the party. Bethany misses the drama as she suffers an allergic reaction and is asked to rest. But the next day at her own party, Bethany takes a stand for Luann against Ramona’s intentions. In the end, the girls channel their inner “elegant whores” and have some fun with the strippers.
In season 12, we can expect Dorinda Medley, Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, and Tinsley Mortimer, to welcome the newest member – Leah McSweeney, to their group. Medley might suffer a meltdown this season, and we might see her raining hellfire on McSweeney, Singer, and de Lesseps. The girls might figure something out to help their friend. Meanwhile, de Lesseps’ life will take a complete U-turn as she might breach her sobriety and start drinking again. On the other hand, much to the dismay of the other Housewives, Mortimer might announce her plans to move to Chicago, to reconcile with the love of her life, Scott Kluth.
