It’s official: The Real Housewives of New York City will be making its grand return to Bravo in 2023! During a taping of Watch What Happens Live on Sunday, October 16, Andy Cohen introduced the world to the new ladies who will star in the Big Apple-based show.
“We were looking for a group of friends who were actually connected. Women with interesting jobs — we have Brooklyn, Tribeca all over town,” the late night host said in a recent interview of why they decided to revamp the lineup. “Really cool jobs, fashion, PR, model, influencer, all different types. Their energy and humor is great.”
Here is everything we know about the new cast of The Real Housewives of New York City reboot:
