Plot 

Season 12  picks off from where it ended last season where Ramona Singer continued her search for love after her split with ex-husband Mario while still being on flirtatiously good terms with him. We also witnessed Tinsley Mortimer's struggle with her on-off boyfriend Scott Kluth and giving him an ultimatum for marriage. Kluth proposed to her earlier this year and rumor has it that he's asked Mortimer to continue with the show or move to Chicago to be with him. Mortimer stopped filming five weeks before the season wrapped up and her departure will be the main focus of the season, according to Yahoo.

Leah McSweeney is the newest housewife joining the cast on this season. The New York native is a mom to 12-year-old Keir aka Kiki and the founder of the women’s streetwear brand, Married to the Mob. Former housewife, Bethenny Frankel helped Leah get cast on the show. 

De Lesseps is already in awe of her new co-star. “She's gorgeous, she’s really beautiful. And what I like about her is she is somebody who is self-made and vulnerable at the same time,” she said. “So I think people can relate to her.” said De Lesseps about McSweeney during an appearance on Michelle Collins’ SiriusXM show.
