ITVBe returns to the Big Apple to follow the lives of seven glamorous, gregarious and often slightly garrulous ladies – model and author Luann de Lesseps, businesswoman Bethenny Frankel, entrepreneur Ramona Singer, sassy single mother Sonja Morgan, best-selling author and journalist Carole
Radziwill, savvy businesswoman Heather Thomson, socialite Dorinda Medley and new wife, the Hong Kong-born stay-at-home mum Jules Wainstein.
The women are no strangers to the Real Housewives franchise’s usual mix of drama, decadence, cat fighting and back biting, and kick off the show’s eighth series with an episode entitled Start Spreading the News, in which Bethenny and Dorinda welcome new housewife Jules into the group at a decidedly tense brunch. Elsewhere, a lonely Sonja invites Luann to come and stay with her, Ramona tries to enjoy her new single lifestyle and Carole seems to be still going strong with boyfriend Adam.
The Real Housewives of New York City Season 8 Episode 1 airs Sunday 4 June 2017 from 9.00pm on ITVBe.
