Bethenny Frankel fans, rejoice!
The straight-talking, business-savvy brunette audiences grew to know and love – and some castmates learned to loathe – on the first three seasons of The Real Housewives of New York City is officially back for the show's seventh season, PEOPLE has confirmed.
"I'm excited," Frankel, 43, tells PEOPLE of her decision to return to reality TV, which she denied earlier this month. "It feels like the first season when it was fresh and new and unknown."
Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson, Kristen Taekman, LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan will be back, too, a rep for the show tells PEOPLE.

Part One of The Real Housewives of New York City reunion was filled with juicy lines, but Part Two on Tuesday was filled with fights.
The tensest moment of the reunion came when host Andy Cohen asked Ramona Singer about her divorce from husband Mario and their current relationship.
"Everyone in my family is doing well," Singer started, refusing to say anything further because of her daughter. "Mario and I are together … Let's go to someone else. Thanks, Andy."
When Cohen tried to push the discussion, Singer pushed back.

Author Carole Radziwill celebrated her 50th birthday, fittingly enough, with a Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil party on Tuesday's Real Housewives of New York City, and – in addition to real butterflies, chandeliers, lots of lace, mannequins and snake handlers – there were plenty of other surprises.
"I never celebrated my birthday after my husband died," said Radziwill, who stated she initially wasn't looking forward to celebrating her 50th, "but I feel sexy and empowered and strong."
Although New York's health department nixed the snakes, Heather Thomson, who planned Radziwill's birthday bash, was able to infuse NYC with Southern charm as well as all the dirty secrets from John Berendt's best seller.

The Real Housewives of New York City headed to a jazz club to watch Heather Thomson and Ramona Singer's husband, Mario, perform, but the night was filled with sour notes after Singer and LuAnn de Lesseps got into a heated argument.
"LuAnn's decided she doesn't want to sing. I don't blame her. She's not that great. And guess what? There's no Auto-Tune here," Singer quipped in Tuesday night's episode, after Thomson informed her that the countess would not be performing at the iconic jazz club Birdland.
Singer then told de Lesseps upon her entrance, "I'm upset you're not singing tonight."

The Real Housewives of New York City went to a rodeo in Montana on Tuesday, but they ended up stampeding all over hostess Kristen Taekman when they went glamping.
"Move over, bitch," Heather Thomson said to Taekman in their tricked-out tent in the middle of Big Sky Country after the two had exchanged heated words earlier in the day.
"Really? You're calling me a bitch right now?" asked Taekman. "I've not seen this side of Heather before."

The Real Housewives of New York City were, almost literally, fish out of water on Tuesday.
On a trip to Montana, the wives tried their manicured hands at a lot of outdoor activities, including fly-fishing, but largely came up empty-handed.
"I had a vision of fish flying out of the water," said Kristen Taekman, while Ramona Singer worried more about the fishy fashion. "The worst part of fly-fishing is the outfit … I look like Humpty Dumpty."

Sonja Morgan had no shame about her "walk of shame" on Tuesday's The Real Housewives of New York City.
"No one is concerned?" asked Kristen Taekman, whom Morgan invited over for a beauty treatment, but she wasn't home when she arrived the next morning. "Only Sonja could get away with this stuff."
Cue Morgan sneaking back into her house.

Sonja Morgan held a funeral for her dog on Tuesday's Real Housewives of New York City, and although it was a touching tribute, the memorial service was also – in typical Sonja style – a little "ruff" around the edges.
"I'm finally ready to say goodbye to my dog of 18 years," said an emotional Morgan. "I used Millou as a crutch … He was my shadow."
Morgan decided to toss a fancy funeral, asking the wives to wear black dresses and hats, and she even attempted to write her own eulogy, but Siri wouldn't cooperate.

The Real Housewives of New York City held an intervention Tuesday for Ramona Singer, who bolted the Berkshires in a private plane after tossing a wine glass at Kristen Taekman.
And shock of shocks: The intervention worked. Well, sort of.
"Call it an intervention, call it a confrontation," said Heather Thomson, whose home Singer fled, lying to the ladies and heading to the Hamptons.
"How was the party?" LuAnn de Lesseps asked, referencing the Twitter photo she received showing Singer at a Hamptons party. "You blew us off, and you lied about it."

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Ramona Singer.
On Tuesday's Real Housewives of New York City, Singer dealt with her glass tossing fight with Kristen Taekman by flying the coop – er – Berkshires.
Unsettled by the Taekman tension and saying she was haunted by memories of her abusive father, Singer called a friend with a private plane to head home to heal, but instead headed to the Hamptons.
