It would not be a Real Housewives of New York City premiere without a good old cheating claim to get the drama started.
On The Real Housewives of New York City Season 9 Episode 1, LuAnn De Lesseps was shocked to hear about a new cheating claim about her fiancé, Tom D’Agostino.
When the episode got underway, we picked up with Bethenny Frankel who opened up about her divorce from Jason Hoppy. Plot twist: It was finally over!
Bethenny revealed she got her apartment sold within 24 hours at the price she wanted for it. That’s practically unheard of but pretty great for Bethenny.
We then switched gears to LuAnn, who was still excited about her wedding. If you watch The Real Housewives of New York City online, you will remember the string of cheating allegations against Tom.
She opened up to her good friend Dorinda Medley about the wedding during a stroll in Central Park. She also dropped the bomb that she only wanted positive energy at the event.
That probably ruled out the likes of Bethenny and Sonja attending.
“The group is fractured,” Dorinda acknowledged to the camera. “I hope that as a group, we can get past it, but when it comes to Sonja, I just don’t know.”
Dorinda revealed that Sonja had been trashing her at any given opportunity.
“It’s not going to end well if she keeps it up,” Dorinda claimed. LuAnn dropped the bomb that Ramona Singer had called Tom’s ex-girlfriend in the middle of the night to try to get dirt on him.
That’s desperation right there.
Later, Dorinda stopped by Carole’s apartment, and they got talking about the drama from the previous season.
“I feel bad that we really got off-track,” Dorinda said. “It hurt my feelings.” The ladies then decided to keep things “light and bright.”
The best part of the season premiere was when Ramona and LuAnn met for lunch to hash out their issues.
“I heard it through the grapevine through friends that you’ve been stirring things up and being negative about Tom and I,” Luann said.
“Why would you go and call people that Tom knows and try to find out stuff about him and his past?”
Ramona blatantly lied, saying she was not seeking the information and that people were offering it up to her. She claimed it did not matter because LuAnn wanted to be kept in the dark about the past.
Ramona then revealed that Tom was on a date with one of his ex-girlfriends. LuAnn seemed in denial and thought this other woman was trying to ruin her nuptials.
“Why would she want to lie?” Ramona asked. LuAnn tried to reasons with Ramona, but Ramona was too concerned about LuAnn’s future to care.
“I know what I have,” Luann barked. “I am strong as a woman.”
“You should advise your husband-to-be that it’s a very small city,” Ramona warned. “It’s a very small city. Tell him to reel it in.”
LuAnn then urged Ramona to be happy for her.
“I toast to your marriage, and I hope you don’t fall on your face with him,” Ramona said. “I’m afraid he’s going to hurt you.”
Something tells us there’s a lot of drama on the way for these two!
