A little hazy on how things ended between the Real Housewives of New York women last season? Don’t worry, we all are, considering how we’ve been woefully deprived of the addictive reality show for almost 18 months. But allow us to give you a quick refresher: Pretty much everyone had some issue with newbie Aviva Drescher — especially Ramona Singer. But that’s all about to change, according to a sneak peek of tonight’s Season 6 premiere!
“I have to say, Aviva is a charmer ... She’s sucking up my ass, big time,” Ramona starts off to the Bravo cameras in a preview clip of ep. And while it’s typical for Ramona to be using such, ahem, colorful wording, she’s not totally off-base.
Aviva has seemingly invited along her former foe to try to make peace. Things start awkwardly, as Ramona is clearly wary of her Season 5 sparring partner. Aviva breaks the ice by suggesting they take a shot of tequila — girl, don’t you know it’s all Pinot, all day, for Ramona? But the Turtle Time aficionado gamely agrees, and the two call over a waiter. Next thing you know, the ladies are knocking back cocktails like nobody’s business.
“Aviva doesn’t really drink that much, so I don’t know what Aviva’s trying to do, what she’s trying to pull,” Ramona says in her confessional — and Aviva’s own talking head answers that very question. “Drinking isn’t really my thing, but if will get me back into Ramona’s good graces, let’s go.”
What a difference a year makes! By the sounds of it, this peace treaty won’t be short-lived either. Both Ramona and Aviva have admitted to growing closer this season. But what about Ramonja? Let’s hope this doesn’t throw a wrench is Ramona’s best friendship with Sonja Morgan!
And there’s a lot more in store for this premiere episode titled, “If You Can Make It Here” — including a new Housewife, Kristen Taekman! Read on for Bravo’s synopsis of the ep:
“The ladies are back and fierce as ever. Heather hosts her own birthday party, but no one is looking forward to seeing Aviva after some of her past eyebrow-raising behavior. The ladies are also introduced to Heather’s longtime friend Kristen, a working model and mother-of-two.”
Real Housewives of New York premieres tonight, March 11, at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
