The Real Housewives are known for throwing lavish parties, wearing pricey bling, and creating endless drama on Bravo.

But when they're not busy throwing drinks in each other's faces, it seems like they can be probably found on a beach or by a pool somewhere. 

And where there's a housewife and water there's probably a string bikini or a bedazzled cut-out swimsuit, too.

Don't believe us? 

We've rounded up 24 housewives who are flaunting their bikini bods ...

We are just over two months away from the return of cat fights, backstabbing and totally scripted episodes on a weekly basis… Big Apple style!

The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 premieres on March 11 with a new cast member (Kristen Taekman) and with far less of an old cast member:

LuAnn de Lesseps has been demoted to recurring status. Yes, she'll still appear. But, no, she isn't included in the following cast photo alongside Taekman, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Heather Thomson, Carole Radziwill, Aviva Drescher.

Jill Zarin was fired from The Real Housewives of New York City last year. And it's safe to say the reality star took the news hard. Very hard.

"It felt like my funeral," Zarin told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live last night. "I was heartbroken."

Among the many other topics covered by Zarin in the interview:

  • Her fights with Bethenny Frankel were staged for ratings.
  • Her feelings on newbies Aviva Drescher, Carole Radziwill and Heather Thomson.
  • Her take on whether she can be replaced on the series: "You can't replace me! You can try, but you know you can't replace me."

Watch the embarrassing interview in its entirety now:

The Real Housewives of New York City reaches its less than explosive conclusion in Reunion Part 2. Who wants blood? Who still wants an apology and who just wants toast?

We break it all down in THG's +/- review.

LuAnn Defends Herself

We revisit LuAnn's alleged night with Tomas in St. Barths and even she has to admit the stories she wove sound ridiculous.  Plus 10.

The Real Housewives of New York City get hot and bothered on part one of their "Reunion" show.  We recap all of the catty confrontations in our THG +/- review.

"Holla!" is what Heather yells out in her opening clip of the show and it's always annoyed me. She thinks it sounds real. Really?  Minus 10. It just sounds silly coming out of a grown woman's mouth. 

Housewives All In

Shocked, worried, and sad were the reactions when the new Housewives came on board and the old were let go.  Who knew that boring and annoying would be the end result for the season. Minus 15.

It's The Real Housewives of New York City and "All's Well that Doesn't End Well" in this season finale. As a matter of fact there are moments when it's downright painful.

We recap the anger, arguments, and lack of apologies in THG's +/- review.

George Confront Ramona

Has anyone else had enough of the new girls this season?  Aviva is crazy but it's hard to be entertained when she's screeching every time she's on the screen.  On the flip side Heather and Carole are simply boring.  Minus 20.
