The Real Housewives of New York City returns for Season 9 on Bravo, with and all-new housewife and plenty more RHONY drama.

The main news on everyone’s lips is the arrival of socialite Tinsley Mortimer as the latest member of the cast.

Once New York City’s most photographed socialite, as the season starts she is still dealing with the aftermath of a run-in with the law down in Florida.

Can she get things back on track?

Returning to the show are Bethenny Frankel, Carole Radziwill, Dorinda Medley, Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, and Sonja Morgan. Sonja is a long-time friend of Tinsley’s, which is what led to her being on the show.

First up, let’s look at Bethenny. This season she’s finally divorced and getting her life back on track. She’s also back to full health after her mysterious health scare last year, which she said wasn’t cancer.

However, while things are looking good for her, her peace and happiness are threatened by a feud with Ramona.

Ramona meanwhile seems to be getting younger every year (how could that be?), and celebrates her birthday. During the season she also hits the dating scene and passes on her wisdom about how to pick up men by teaching other women.

Carole, who has been accused of living too much in Bethenny’s shadow in the past, does her best to try and build bridges and relationships with the other RHONY women — and makes some unexpected connections.

Sonja and Dorinda are back to their normal feuding ways, but things reach all-new levels when Sonja makes claims about Dorinda’s personal life.

But Sonja’s personal life is also on the radar — when she gets caught in a love triangle! One ticks one box, while the other ticks another (know what me mean?) Will she listen to her heart…or her body!?

There’s also plenty of drunkenness, some nudity…and former Real Housewife Jill Zarin, who was a mainstay cast member for the first four seasons, appears as a guest.

Oh, and RHONY just wouldn’t be the same these days without Luann’s relationship with husband Tom D’Agostino taking center stage…

The Real Housewives of New York City airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
