The Real Housewives of New York City Reboot Cast Revealed: The Bravo headquarters just received seven fresh apples. The Real Housewives of New York City’s new cast was revealed on Sunday, part-fulfilling the network’s pledge to completely relaunch the program.
The second part of that pledge was to film a spin-off series with returning cast members, as Bravo first revealed last spring. Even though RHONY alum Dorinda Medley asked Andy Cohen on Sunday at BravoCon when she will be welcomed back to the show, there has been no update on that.
The major RHONY cast reveal took place at BravoCon, a weekend-long fan summit with dozens of seminars, meet-and-greets, and fan events. The seven aspiring Bravolebs made an unexpected appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on Sunday night.
Jenna Lyons, the former president, and executive director of J. Crew is the most well-known member of the new cast. (She has previously made a number of appearances in that role on the network.)
0She is joined by Sai De Silva, creative director of the website Scout the City, Ubah Hassan, a real estate agent, model, and hot sauce entrepreneur (sure! ), Erin Dana Lichy, influencer Lizzy Savetsky (it was only a matter of time), fashion publicist Jessel Taank, and marketer Brynn Whitfield.
In April 2021, RHONY’s final season came to an end. It was notable for being the first season for which Bravo decided not to film a reunion. (There was a delay in filming due to an investigation into alleged incidents involving Ramona Singer from the original cast, and the network ultimately decided against having a reunion at all.)
It also featured Sonja Morgan, Luann de Lesseps, Leah McSweeney, and Eboni K. Williams. The season received harsh criticism for a number of contentious and upsetting discussions about race and religion.

While McSweeney is a part of the third season of Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip, Morgan and de Lesseps have just announced their own spin-off series, the very Simple Life-sounding Welcome to Crappie.
Among the almost 200 Bravo stars who attended BravoCon over the weekend were numerous former cast members. In 2023, the new RHONY cast will make its debut, according to Bravo.
