Real Housewives of New York Drama: Sai De Silva Criticizes New Cast Mate Rebecca Minkoff as ‘Boring’

The Real Housewives of New Yorkseason 14 and Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: RHONY Legacywere seasons for the books. We got a peak into the lives of New York‘s rich and famous, both past and present, and to nobody’s surprise…we want more!

This long-standing, well-loved franchise saw a lot in its heyday — I mean, just look at what happened when they put the OGs together for one trip — and it continues to thrill audiences with new fabulous faces. But what can we expect from a new season of RHONY? With rumors swirling about who’s set to return, here’s everything we know about The Real Housewives of New York season 15.

Is “The Real Housewives of New York” coming back for season 15?

For a while, there was no official word from Bravo about whether or not we were getting more RHONY…but we’re stayed hopeful! Well, all that waiting paid off because Bravo posted on Instagram that season 15 is a-go! Andy Cohen recently told Us Weeklythat the “next season” should fix some of the bumps this reboot faced, so we’re excited to see what that means for the upcoming RHONY season!

Who’s in the cast for “The Real Housewives of New York” season 15?

It was pretty unclear who was returning to The Real Housewives of New York. Most notably outspoken about her return (or potential lack thereof) was Jenna Lyons. She told Jimmy Fallon that she wasn’t sure if she’ll return for another season, which would have been a total bummer TBH! Jenna’s sublime style and unique personality added so much to the show’s dynamic last year, and it would definitely be missed.

LUCKILY, the entire season 14 is set to return for RHONY season 15 — Jenna included! Watch the adorable announcement here.

Reports are in that THE Rebecca Minkoff is joining the cast, too. While it’s unclear if she’s a friend of the show or a main cast member, I can’t wait to watch this amazing female founder take the show by the horns! Meanwhile, other folks have different feelings about the new housewife.

According to Page Six, Sai De Silva isn’t too interested in Minkoff’s presence on the show. In what she must have thought was a private conversation, De Silva shared that she finds Minkoff to be “boring” and that she’s “unresponsive” to the cast’s attempts to “take her down.” Whoops!

The show hasn’t even started, and I already can’t wait to watch this all unfold…

Is Luann de Lesseps coming back to “The Real Housewives of New York”?

Matt Rogers recently asked Countess Luann outright about the possibility of a return to the RHONY world. According to Matt, he heard that the upcoming season would have Brynn Whitfield, Erin Lichy, Jessel Taank, Sonja Morgan, Luann de Lesseps, and Dorinda Medley with Ubah Hassan returning as a friend of the cast. Luann neither confirmed nor denied this IRL, but cryptically commented on Instagram this February about the rumors.

However, as of right now, Countess Luann de Lesseps isn’t an announced cast season 15 cast member.

What do the other cast members think about these rumors? According to Us Weekly, Brynn Whitfield is “open to anything” when it comes to filming with current and former cast members. Meanwhile, Erin Lichy told Access Hollywoodthat they’re “not joining forces with (RHONY) Legacy.”

Who got fired from “RHONY”?

After filming RHONY Legacy, investigative reporting by Vanity Fairfound that Ramona Singer allegedly used a racial slur towards a Black crew member — among other racially-driven misconduct allegations from years past and present. Ramona vehemently denied the use of the slur, but was still asked not to attend BravoCon in 2023. It’s very likely that her time at Bravo is now up. According to PEOPLE, Ramona also isn’t employed by real estate company Douglas Elliman anymore.

Who is the richest on “The Real Housewives of New York”?

According to Cosmopolitan, Jenna Lyons is worth approximately $5 million dollars — the most net-worth of the current cast for The Real Housewives of New York. However, this could change if she decides not to return to the show! The next in line would be Brynn Whitfield, coming in at a worth of $3 million dollars.

When will “The Real Housewives of New York” season 15 air?

Allegedly filming for The Real Housewives of New York season 15 hasn’t even started yet. As of February 7, Erin Lichy wasn’t even sure when filming would start, according to Access Hollywood. So everything seems very TBD at the moment.

Is there a trailer for “The Real Housewives of New York” season 15?

Since filming is still up in the air, we definitely don’t have a trailer yet. We’re definitely keeping our eyes peeled for the moment something drops, though!
