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."

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.

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."

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."
