On Monday's The Real Housewives of New York City, the cast heads to St. Barts to cut loose. But Countess LuAnn de Lesseps found herself the subject of salacious morning-after rumors after reportedly spending time alone with Tomas, a French-speaking Johnny Depp lookalike whom the ladies meet at a club during an alcohol-fueled night out.
The next morning, after telling the ladies she brought home a group Italian friends, de Lesseps is heard on the phone, and she's speaking in French.
"Can you do a favor for me, a big favor? I went out with Tom last night. You know, the one that looks a bit like Johnny Depp? And the girls, they know I brought someone here," she says on the call, which Bravo subtitles. "He can't say that he was here last night with me. I don't want the girls to know he was here with me," she says.

Here's some feud for thought: Are you on Team Heather or Team Ramona?
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.
So when Heather tried to play nice at the party, Ramona was not interested.

After a big casting shake-up this season on The Real Housewives of New York City, Jill Zarin seems to think Bravo needs her back.
But that's not going to happen.
"We wish Jill the best, but there is no consideration of her returning to the series," a network spokesperson tells PEOPLE.
The former Housewife, who was fired after the fourth season along with Alex McCord and Kelly Bensimon, has publicly criticized the newly rebooted series and recently told the New York Daily News, "You don't change what works."

Epic drama alert!
Surrounded by the peaceful surroundings of Central Park, Real Housewives of New York City's LuAnn de Lesseps and Ramona Singer continued their feud – and dropped plenty of serious insults in the process – on Monday night's episode.
Their dispute, which started during season 4 when Ramona accused LuAnn of having poor parenting skills, came to a head during what was supposed to be a meeting to clear the air. But it ended with Ramona telling LuAnn, "You put people down to make yourself look good."

The Real Housewives of New York City are back! Well, some of them are back and some of them are gone.
On Monday's season 5 premiere, viewers reunited with Ramona Singer, LuAnn de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan – and got to meet newbies Heather Thomson, Carole Radziwill and Aviva Drescher, and it didn't take long for the fireworks to begin – or to reignite in one case.
At Sonja's mixer to introduce the new women, LuAnn and Ramona picked up right where they left off on season 4, bickering about comments Ramona made about LuAnn's parenting style. The encounter made Ramona's heart race.
Later, during an awkward meeting at Heather's office, Ramona and the new Housewife attempt to find common ground but end up one-upping each other over business hours and recent and not-so-recent tragedies.

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."

Let the games – er, shows – begin!
Bravo's summer programing slate is heating up, and the network has recruited a fleet of its "Bravolebrities" – more than 30 in total – for a fun, fast-paced new promo, and PEOPLE.com has a first look. (The commercial will make its TV debut during Wednesday's Watch What Happens Live.)

New friendships? Well, really more like new rivalries!
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.

Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Kelly Bensimon and Cindy Barshop are out – but who are the brave new stars of The Real Housewives of New York City that will join Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan and LuAnn DeLesseps in upcoming seasons of Bravo's hit show?
A source close to the show tells PEOPLE that New York City is in need of "new energy," and heard that the new cast will include a woman in the fashion business, a philanthropist with three children and a writer.
Well, a report in New York's Daily News names three women who fit that bill.
Best-selling author and former ABC News producer Carole Radziwill, whose late husband's aunt was Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, is joining the reality show, according to the report. Radziwill was friends with Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, who died alongside her husband John F. Kennedy Jr., when his plane crashed in 1999.
