Sonja Morgan is new to The Real Housewives of New York City. She's the ex-wife of John Adams Morgan, the great-grandson of financier John...

Prior to season six of The Real Housewives of New York City, LuAnn de Lesseps role was reduced from primary cast member to "friend," meaning that she appeared in fewer episodes for dramatically reduced pay.

Now it seems the move was more of a blow to LuAnn's ego than to her pocketbook, as the the Countess is reportedly willing to do anything to star in season seven as a full-fledged Housewife - including work for free.

Countess LuAnn de Lesseps

LuAnn is rumored to be ramping up the drama in her life, as insiders close to the show claim she was cut from the main cast because she "just wasn't bringing it."

LuAnn and Aviva Dresher feuded at a recent charity event in what some believe to be a part of the Countess' campaign to get back on RHONY full time.

There's a singing showdown on The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 18 and as Ramona was quick to point out, there was no auto-tuning.

Boy, do we wish there had been. We recap the singing that should be kept to the shower in our THG +/- review.

Ramona Singer couldn't have been more happy… or more drunk. Sometimes it's hard to distinguish between the two but husband Mario was about to sing her a love ballad in public. 

Ramona Gets Mean

Plus 15 to Ramona. For her I'm sure it was very sweet. Minus 25 for the rest of us who had to sit through the song. Why does everyone on these shows think they can sing?

At least Harry had a plan to keep himself entertained for the night. Eat lots of chicken wings and have sex with Sonja in the restroom. 

And why has Sonja heard Mario sing in the shower?!?

The Real Housewives of New York City was facing cancelation earlier this season, as ratings for the once-popular reality series hit an all-time low.

Now, Bravo execs have allegedly decided to keep the show - and axe the cast.

The Real Housewives of NY Season 5 Cast

Radar Online reports that the entire cast of RHONY has been fired, with the exception of Ramona Singer, whose future on the show remains in doubt.

As the series begins to wrap up its sixth season this summer, the audition process for an all-new cast for season seven is already underway.

The news wouldn't be terribly surprising, although it has yet to be confirmed by Bravo, which does not make official casting moves during the season.

It's been known for some time, though, that Bravo would likely have to make major changes to one of its longest reality series if the show was to survive.

Producers are expected to seek out young, hot and - most importantly - quick tempered women of privilege for a revamped Real Housewives of New York.

Tuesday on The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 16, the adventure in beautiful, tranquil Montana continued, sans any real relaxation of course.

Instead, there was drama and more drama. The main offenders this week? Sonja Morgan and LuAnn de Lesseps, and Heather Thomson and Kristen Taekman.

If you watch The Real Housewives of New York City online, you know LuAnn is really fired up about Sonja's facialist talking smack about her and her love life.

Well, that's still going on.

One can understand that she wouldn't CHOOSE to have a facialist blabbing about all the French guys she likes to dominate. But is it that big a deal LuAnn?

No, but this is The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 16, not the Real Lives of People Who Are Mature and Have Better Things to Do.

Meanwhile, Heather Thomson and Kristen Taekman, who are normally on good terms, hit a snag in their relationship whilst descending a mountain.

Last night on The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 15, the ladies broke out the cowboy boots, because they're headed to Montana!

The only absence was Aviva Drescher, who came down with asthma and "was not allowed" to travel to such a high altitude at the last moment.

In other words, Aviva Drescher was "fired" by Bravo again.

Anyway, for those who did go, the trip started out like we've seen countless times before, with the women drinking and whining about where they are.

A place that just happens to be spectacular, obviously.

Then the real bickering began as LuAnn De Lesseps straight up asked Sonja Morgan why her facialist was gossiping about herself and Carole Radziwill.

She may have more financial problems than Lindsay Lohan, but Sonja Morgan is raking in the dough from The Real Housewives of New York City.

According to reports, Morgan is set to make $426,500 from the reality TV show from just the current sixth season on Bravo. That's the good news.

The bad news? We only know this since it's in court documents from her bankruptcy case. Morgan filed last year after falling into massive debt.

Sonja's Stunned

Hannibal Pictures, the production company that sued Morgan for failing to raise money for a movie involving John Travolta, won a judgment against her.

Morgan was forced to file bankruptcy because of the $7 million judgment, which reached a staggering $8.5 million total with interest and attorneys’ fees.

Judge Rita Miller upheld the financial ruling, and also gave Hannibal Pictures an additional year to enforce a lien on Morgan’s earnings and assets.

On The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 14, so much happened that we don't even know where to begin. So let's just start with Sonja.

Oh, Sonja.

After Morgan invited Kristen Taekman over for a facial, the aesthetician (the oracle of celebrity gossip apparently), "heard" that Sonja slept with Russ.

As in Russ Irwin from Aerosmith, the adorable ex-boyfriend of Carole Radziwill. While he was still dating Carole. Sonja didn't deny the accusations.

Rather, she seemed to bask in the attention this was getting. That was Carole's take too. When Kristen told her, she was convinced it wasn't true.

The more likely scenario, Carolie felt, is that Sonja heard she was the topic of a salacious rumor and ran with it because she thinks it makes her cool.

We wouldn't put actually having a tryst with a fellow cast member's partner past her, but Carole may be right on the money with her take on this matter.

On The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 13, we discovered that not one but two cast members are as out there as Ramona Singer.

Not that anyone can expect to match her propensity for lying, getting defensive, throwing wine glasses and acting like an overall loose cannon, but still.

Aviva Drescher and Sonja Morgan? Well/horribly done, ladies.

Let's start with Aviva, whose father George has a really hot sex life.

At least it must be, otherwise why would his own daughter be so interested in it? Like beyond natural curiosity, to the point where she will ask about it?

Seriously, Aviva Drescher pressed his fiancee for details. Hard.

The best part, like a true Real Housewives star, Aviva then made a dramatic scene when she found out the answer to the question she asked.

Wait wait wait slow down ... I don't need to hear this! Sigh.

Amazingly, when you watch The Real Housewives of New York City online, this cringe-worthyness may pale in comparison to Sonja Morgan's drunk antics.

This week, on The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 12, we got a break from Ramona Singer drama and saw ... a lot of random storylines.

Some of the highlights (and we use the term loosely) from a thrown-together The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 12 include:

  • The funeral of Milou, Sonja Morgan's dog (yes, it was that kind of week on NYC)
  • Kristen Taekman's husband, Josh, heckling her as she filmed a workout video
  • Carole Radziwill interviewing some seriously unqualified assistant candidates
  • Aviva Drescher talking to her dad about mirrors on the ceiling and having sex

Yes, that last part happened. We're not sure if that should get Aviva Drescher fired or a giant pay raise, but either way, it was extremely uncomfortable.

Anyway, the ostensible big story was Sonja's dog funeral. Which was just absurd.

The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 11, as any devoted fan could have predicted, was again all about Ramona, Ramona, Ramona.

She throws drinks at people. What do you expect?

The women decided to stage a Ramona intervention of sorts after she left them in the Berkshires to go to Molly Sims' party in the Hamptons last week.

Naturally, this totally necessary action made The Real Housewives of New York City Season 6 Episode 11 a virtual tidal wave of Ramotional moments.

Yes, Ramotional. She is in her own league.

Denying everything, freaking out, making counter-accusations ... the works. But she was LITERALLY boxed in (booth style), so at least she couldn't flee!
