Real Housewives of New York Ratings Are Down: Is It Because of the Cast Change?

The Real Housewives of New York's supersized Season 5 premiere (Season 5, Episode 1: "A New New York") introduced us to an almost entirely new cast. But never fear: the Housewives, new and old, jumped right into the drama, with catty fights over dinner and a big accusation from LuAnn. Unfortunately, some former RHoNY fans didn't tune in to see it all go down. The premiere drew 1.7 million viewers — down from the 1.9 for Season 4, and 2 million back in Season 3. Did people... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/alw7ndE3XUY/real-housewives-of-new-york-ratings-are-down-is-it-because-of-the-cast-change

Real Housewives of New York Season 5: Are You on Team LuAnn or Team Ramona?

Was there enough drama for you on last night’s (June 4) premiere of The Real Housewives of New York Season 5? We counted at least four mini-spats between the Housewives, old and new, and even a House husband (we’re talking to you, Mario!). But the most personal and storied fight involved LuAnn and Ramona, the only two New York ladies who have been around since Season 1. As we noted in our recap, LuAnn begins this season in the unfortunate position of being officially wronged by... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/YSO2o3iqh0U/real-housewives-of-new-york-season-5-are-you-on-team-luann-or-team-ramona

'Real Housewives of New York': Countess LuAnn de Lesseps taking a break from singing for Season 5

Fans hoping that they'd get to hear more gems like "Money Can't Buy You Class" and "Chic, C'est la Vie" from resident "Real Housewives of New York City" songstress LuAnn de Lesseps during Season 5 will have to get their fix on YouTube instead. "I've decided to take a break from singing this season with Victoria going to college," LuAnn tells Zap2it. "And I'm working on a jewelry line ... it's inspired from all the jewelry that I've collected from around the world."You can shop Countess LuAnn Accessories on her site now, but the Countess says she'll have more plans for the line firmed up by the Season 5 reunion when she sits down to chat with Andy Cohen and rehash the season with the other ladies.And there's sure to be plenty of drama to rehash at the season's end, especially with three new housewives on the scene.

'Real Housewives of New York City' Season 5 Preview: Back to the Big Apple

On the last season of Real Housewives of New York City , Ramona Singer fought with everyone and drank gallons of pinot grigio, Sonja Morgan went bankrupt and  danced in a swan costume , and the Countess LuAnn de Lesseps released another unsolicited single while refusing to drop the title "Countess" even though she divorced the Count and is dating a new man. Kelly Bensimon, Alex McCord, Cindy Barshop and Jill Zarin did things too, but not important enough things to stay on the show because they were all fired. http://www.buddytv.com/articles/the-real-housewives-of-new-york-city/real-housewives-of-new-york-ci-45928.aspx

'Real Housewives of New York': Countess LuAnn de Lesseps on battling with Ramona Singer and having a baby with Jacques Azoulay

When "The Real Housewives of New York City" returns on Monday (June 4), viewers will be introduced to three new faces -- Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson and Aviva Drescher -- but it's the drama unfolding between original cast members Countess LuAnn de Lesseps and Ramona Singer that fans are most excited to watch."Ramona and I have always had our fair share of problems with, let's say, connectedness," LuAnn tells Zap2it. "We're just two different people ... but you'll see a resolution."That resolution definitely isn't coming in the series' explosive Season 5 premiere, though, as Ramona allegedly threatens to blackmail the Countess -- and you know the queen of etiquette is not having that.But one thing she may be having is a baby with her boyfriend, Jacques Azoulay?! LuAnn already has two children -- Victoria, 17, and Noel, 15 -- with ex-husband Alexandre de Lesseps. "It would be great if we were blessed to be able... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/06/real-housewives-of-new-york-countess-luann-de-lesseps-on-battling-with-ramona-singer-and-having-a-ba.html
