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."

They don't always get along, but perhaps the ladies of The Real Housewives of New York City will sing along to Countess LuAnn de Lesseps's latest musical endeavor.
After all, they seem to be her inspiration.
"Gold, diamonds, caviar," de Lesseps, 46, sings in the music video for "Chic C'est La Vie," while she's joined by fellow Housewives Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon." "Life is but a dream when every day you're living in is featured on TV."

Like the big kids they are, Bravo's reality TV stars are heading off to camp together for a summer of fun, pranks and hijinks – and, of course, endless drama.
That's the theme, anyway, of a star-studded, playful new Bravo promo, backed by the new Britney Spears single "I Wanna Go," that touts the cable network's summer programming, including 10 new and returning series premieres.
The 60-second video, set to run on Bravo, online and in theaters, features Real Housewives Nene Leakes, Kandi Burruss, Teresa Giudice, Caroline Manzo, Jill Zarin, LuAnn de Lesseps, Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards, as well as former Housewife Bethenny Frankel.

When Jill Zarin showed up at the TV Land Awards last week, her fresh face and narrower nose sparked speculation that the The Real Housewives of New York City star had plastic surgery.
What's her secret? "I have a liquid facelift every six months," Zarin tells PEOPLE. "It really works. No knives!"
A "liquid facelift" is "just using injectables," says Zarin, who started visiting Dr. Patricia Wexler a year ago to get the procedure. Rather than using a filler to tackle individual smile lines, the dermatologist says she lifted Zarin's face by injecting Restylane along the jaw line and up along the sides of her face. The procedure can cost between $1,000-$3,000 per visit.

The Real Housewives of New York City are no strangers to drama, catfights and taking sides, but this season the ladies have taken their differences one step further – division by hair color.
"It's just the natural divide, it's like [the San] Andreas fault," LuAnn de Lesseps, referring to California's earthquake boundary, told PEOPLE recently at Bravo's upfront presentation. "You just can't guess when it's going to split."
The Countess is joined by Jill Zarin and new housewife Cindy Barshop to make up "Team Brunette," while Alex McCord, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan are members of "Team Blond" – but Kelly Bensimon says her ombre highlights (dark at the roots, light at the tips) kept her firmly neutral.

Bethenny Frankel got married, had a baby and documented it on her own Bravo reality show. But the Housewife isn't forgetting about her roots: she's going to be re-joining The Real Housewives of New York City next season, according to one of her costars.
"Bethenny will come on a little bit. We need a Bethenny moment," Ramona Singer tells PEOPLE about the show's upcoming fourth season, adding that the other women – Alex McCord, Kelly Bensimon, Jill Zarin, Sonja Morgan and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps – "have been renewed."
In June, Frankel said she didn't see herself returning as a Housewife unless there were a few key changes. De Lesseps at the time also said she was unsure about her future with the hit Bravo show.

Is a new Housewife joining the mix?
On Tuesday night, Britney Spears's mother Lynne had a girls' night out at the lower Manhattan restaurant Kenmare with her niece, a family friend and Real Housewives of New York City's Jill Zarin.
How did this seemingly unlikely pair come to be pals?
"I met Lynne a few years ago backstage with [my daughter] Ali at Britney's concert at the Meadowlands [Sports Complex in New Jersey], we just connected and we kept in touch," Zarin tells PEOPLE. "When Lynne comes to town we try to meet and catch up. She called me a couple of months ago and said she was coming to New York."
