The Real Housewives of New York City star Sonja Morgan, is broke. She's also basically homeless since she's renting her Upper East Side townhome to the tune of $25,000 a month to make ends meet.

And that $25,000 a month?

Yeah, that only covers the property taxes on the home and doesn't even make a dent in the millions the former wife of heir to J.P. Morgan supposedly owes the government.

Morgan, Sonja

While scenes for RHONY are being shot in the apartment, Sonja's "interns" seem to be the ones who actually live there.

The five-story, five-bedroom home, which contains a gym, sauna, and garden, is a gorgeous place, but Sonja Morgan just can't afford to keep living there.

She's trying - and failing - to maintain a high-class profile but her financial and legal woes are making that difficult.

Last night's The Real Housewives of New York Season 6 Episode 6 shaped up to be a battle royale between Heather Thomson and Aviva Drescher.

Even by their standards.

If you asked any fan to watch The Real Housewives of New York City online and tell you which of the two they felt was more insane, Aviva would win.

Typically, that is.

Heather Thomson and Aviva Drescher

Heather made a strong case for bad taste and general off-her-rocker behavior this week, though and only helped Aviva play the victim card convincingly.

So what happened on The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 6? It began with an Aviva and Heather make-up, sans any real making up.

After Heather invited Aviva to her 10-year anniversary party as a peace offering, Aviva said yes, only to have Heather uninvite her later. Via text, natch.

Oof. She just felt that it was "too soon" and not a good place to move forward with things ... "holla!" Now that's a great way to end an uninvited text.

With a failed talk show under her belt, SkinnyGirl Bethenny Frankel will NOT be returning to The Real Housewives of New York City.

The experience, she says, was like "Vietnam War flashbacks." 

You know, the one where 58,209 Americans lost their lives? Yeah. That's what she says being on RHONY was like.

During the same interview wherein Bethenny admitted that she failed as a talk show host, she admitted that part of the reason for the show's failure was that she felt stifled on the air.

"I like to be free," she said. "I don't plan on what I'm going to say."

Judging the Vietnam War comment, that's a pretty accurate statement there Bethenny.

The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 5 was all about Aviva Drescher and some personal demons she waited decades to confront.

Sounds ominous, doesn't it? What do we mean exactly? Read on ...

Aviva's childhood friend Becky Morgan reached out to her, and while this happens all the time on reality shows, this friend played a key role in Aviva's life.

It was Becky who was playing side by side with her on the Morgan family farm the day that she stumbled into a conveyor belt that would take her leg.

If you watch The Real Housewives of New York City online, you are likely familiar with Aviva's handicap and how resilient she's been in spite of it.

What you likely didn't know was how much guilt Becky has been carrying since that day. As Aviva tells us, she was the one who wanted to play on the thing.

So when Aviva decided to meet up, see the old farm and confront her demons face to face, you knew you were in for an emotional blast from the past.

Tuesday night's The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 4 saw the gang head off to the Hamptons for some drama-free rest and relaxation.

Yeah, right.

Most of us commoners know that if you're in the midst of a huge beef with someone, perhaps the best idea is not to go get drunk with them in the Hamptons.

Then again, most of us commoners aren't on reality shows, and no one would watch The Real Housewives of New York City online if we were. So there.

On The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 4, Sonja Morgan does not actually know what burlesque is, but we'll forgive her that.

Whether others are as forgiving after the confrontation that went down at Lu's is another story altogether. And it's the same old story, folks: BookGate.

The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 3 featured a major dose of Kristen Taekman, and fans seeing the new wife more than ever before.

Turns out she's a lot less predictable than thought, and she's got a temper!

We suppose that's not a big surprise. Would fans watch The Real Housewives of New York City online if she were some boring, demure and classy chick?

Kristen was enlisted by her husband to do an all-terrain road race that required her to compete hardcore and get dirty doing it. She was not a big fan.

Both Kristen's husband and Heather Thomson promised not to leave her side during the event, which they did, and which she was far from pleased about.

After she cramped up, her friends and husband completed the race ahead of her, which is admittedly no fun, but her reaction? Not exactly laid back.

To say the absolute least.

The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 2 asked the time-honored question: Does being on a Bravo show make you a real writer?

Brandi Glanville would argue yes. Carole Radziwill? Probably not. Since unlike every other unreal housewife on the network, she actually is a writer!

It's not Brandi who brings this to the forefront, of course, but Aviva Drescher, who recently secured a book deal simply because she's on the reality show.

Naturally, this sets up this week's primary RHONY beef: Carole vs. Aviva.

The combination of resentment and Aviva's utter lack of self-awareness is classic. "Writing is fun!" Aviva says, or "like jamming out a long e-mail!"

Hey, she can Tweet, and a publisher just gave her money. Suck it, haters.

Kristen Taekman made her debut on The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 1, the series' first new installment in nearly two yars.

According to her bio on Bravo's website, Taekman is married to EBOOST co-founder Josh Taekman, and mom to son Cash, 5, and daughter Kingsley, 2.

So who is Taekman, who joins veteran ladies Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson, Aviva Drescher, and Luann de Lesseps?

You can watch The Real Housewives of New York City online to find out more for yourself, but we've put together a brief primer on the new reality star.

Brandi Glanville (The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) and Heather Thomson (The Real Housewives of New York City) recommended her for the show.

Brandi was a bridesmaid in her wedding, and vice versa!

"We're really, really close friends," Taekman shared. "She was one of my bridesmaids. And I was at her wedding. People [have] to cut [Brandi] some slack."

"I definitely swear, but not as much as she does. I'm a lot like her. We could almost be sisters, but kind of like from a different mother kind of thing."

Kristen Taekman has already sparked some controversy, not unlike her Beverly Hills counterpart, with her opening tagline during the RHONYC credits:

"I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but I'm pretty!"

The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 1 reminded us in the long-awaited premiere that marriages, trends and money may come and go.

Cat fights, on the flip side, are forever.

After almost two years of having to watch The Real Housewives of New York City online to get our fix, the show is back with new episodes at last.

On the Season 6 premiere, we met a new housewife, Kristen Taekman, and the cattiness hit at an all-time high with the ladies ganging up on Aviva Drescher.

Season 6 opens with Carole Radziwill‘s author photo shoot, then Ramona Singer paying co-star Sonja Morgan a visit at her Upper East Side apartment.

“New haircut, new boys,” Sonja says, and she's got both. We see her new 'do as well as the new 20-something boy she's doing later in the episode.

Soon enough, the discussion turns to Aviva and how no one likes her. Ramona labels her “vicious,” adding that she has “really nothing to say to her.”

Good thing Heather is throwing her birthday party and all ladies will be confined in the same club and there to gang up on her with cameras rolling!
