Just ahead of the season 2 premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Monday, the stars of The Real Housewives of New York City are opening up about the suicide of Taylor Armstrong's estranged husband, Russell.
"That made me cry," Ramona Singer told PEOPLE before heading off to spend the Labor Day weekend aboard a 150-ft. yacht in Newport, R.I., and Nantucket, Mass. "[Taylor is] lovely and it's hitting her hard. The night before the memorial service, I had dinner with [Taylor's costars] Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards and we talked about it. And they've been so supportive."

Kelly Bensimon is setting the record straight about her sometimes outrageous behavior on The Real Housewives of New York City.
After Bensimon, 43, had her now-infamous meltdown during a cast trip to St. John's, "people called me crazy," she admits in the September issue of Shape magazine."But what they saw was me reacting – in an honest way – to a situation that wasn't honest. Then everyone ganged up on me. So, of course I looked crazy!"
Bensimon was so distraught by the backlash from her erratic behavior on the show that she almost didn't return for the fourth season. It was her daughters, Sea, 13, and Teddy, 11, who convinced her to let the public know who she really is.

They may call Manhattan home, but with summer in full swing – and their season 4 wrapped – the ladies of the The Real Housewives of New York City are taking a break from the Big Apple ... although not a very big one.
Bravo stars LuAnn de Lesseps, Jill Zarin, Ramona Singer, Alex McCord, Kelly Bensimon, Sonja Morgan and Cindy Barshop have been spotted at social and charity events all over the Hamptons, on the Eastern End of New York's Long Island.
"To be out in the Hamptons – it's business," Singer tells The New York Times. "By being seen and meeting new people, it gives you the liaisons for the fall. Then you get invited to the personal parties in the city."

Now that season 4 – including part two of the reunion, which aired Monday – has wrapped, who among the stars of The Real Housewives of New York City will return for another season?
"The damage is done," Jill Zarin told PEOPLE at Saturday's Bridgehampton Polo match. "I don't know if I can film with these girls."
In town to spend "low-key" time with her family, Jill spoke about her feud with costar Ramona Singer and the allegations of alcoholism among the women.

The women of The Real Housewives of New York City met up to discuss their fourth season of the hit reality show recently – and the fireworks aired Monday night. Here are the most dramatic moments:
1. Sonja's Meltdown: When host Andy Cohen asked Sonja Morgan about her tough year, which included filing for bankruptcy, she broke down in tears. "The $7 million, that wasn't what really killed me," she said of money she was ordered to pay in a lawsuit against her. "What was very upsetting to me was that my marriage fell apart ... I didn't care about the trial. I didn't care about the money. I was focused on the past, my husband and what we had together."
2. Jill Insults Alex: When Andy asked Jill Zarin about criticizing Alex McCord and Ramona Singer for wearing white to a wedding, Alex fired back, saying, "It's a lot ruder to call someone a 'f–– bitch' at the wedding than it is to wear cream."
"By the way, " Jill said in response, "you are an effing bitch."

Sonja may be bankrupt, but that didn't stop her from throwing an over-the-top party on Thursday's episode.
Though nearly $20 million in debt, The Real Housewives of New York City star Sonja Morgan decided to throw a lavish burlesque-themed party for her friends and fellow costars at the Hotel Empire.
In preparation for and during the party itself, Sonja generously offered some entertainingly offbeat moments. Shopping at a costume store, Morgan met her "twin," as she called him – a salesman in women's attire and a blonde wig.
Later, displaying her outfit to a fashion designer friend, she revealed, "My nipples go east and west."
