On Monday's The Real Housewives of New York City, original cast member Ramona Singer came face to face with newbie Heather Thomson at their costar Aviva Drescher's five-year anniversary party.

It was the first time the two women, who did not start off on the right foot, were in each other's company since Heather organized a trip to London and invited everyone but Ramona.

Let the trash talking begin!

The fifth season of The Real Housewives of New York City premieres Monday night on Bravo. But the show's three surviving cast members – Ramona Singer, LuAnn DeLesseps and Sonja Morgan – already have some choice words for newcomers Heather Thomson, Carole Radziwill and Aviva Drescher in this interview with PEOPLE.

Singer offers the most pointed critiques, revealing that after spending time with one of the new ladies in particular, she just wants to "smack her face." Another, Singer says, seemed normal at first but then "all of a sudden she got possessed."

Real Housewives of New York City: Meet the New Castmates – and Watch Their Drama Unfold

Aviva Drescher, Carole Radziwill and Heather Thomson will join the Real Housewives of New York City when the reality series returns for its fifth season (June 4, 9 p.m.) – and judging from an early preview (watch the clip below), they aren't mixing so well with veteran Housewives LuAnn de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer, who have come back for even more drama this year. (The show's season premiere will be 90-minutes to accommodate it all!)

But not all feuds are new: In a three-minute teaser for the season, Countess LuAnn calls out Ramona for blackmailing her and, later, tangles even more with Sonja and Ramona on vacation.

"I'm not angry," she told PEOPLE. "I had a great opportunity. I mean, three years! Three years I'm on television. ... The show is on all over the world and we're still going to be on for a long time. It's like the Baywatch of Housewives. For me, it's just the gift that keeps on giving."
