In the new season of RHONY, social media influencers are also abundant. Lizzy is a digital influencer, activist, mother of three, and the wife of Dr. Ira Savetsky, a plastic surgeon. The native Texan also presents her own Instagram show, Bashert, in which she assists Jewish singles in finding love.

Sai De Silva was born and reared in New York as an Afro-Latina. She is the creative director of Scout the City, an online lifestyle destination that began as a passion project blog and swiftly developed. Scout the City highlights Sai's fashionable parenting adventures in Brooklyn, where she lives with her husband, David Craig, and their two children, London and Rio.

Ubah Hassan is a Somalian model and philanthropist who established her home in New York. Ubah fled with her father and brother to Kenya as a child but later migrated to Canada, where she was discovered by a photographer and signed by a modeling agency. Ubah is an entrepreneur and the founder of UBAHHOT, a hot sauce brand she established from the ground up.

Erin Dana Lichy is a witty, self-assured, and forthright New Yorker who was reared in Manhattan by a close-knit Israeli family. Erin, a natural achiever, became a real estate agent at the age of 19 and operates her home restoration and design company, Homegirl. Erin's husband is a lawyer and the proprietor of Lichy Law. Together, they have three children and reside in Tribeca. Erin is extremely outgoing, enjoys being in the company of people, and is always up for a good time.

Jenna Lyons is the former President and Executive Creative Director of J.Crew Group, where she was widely acknowledged as the creative power behind the American retail company's meteoric climb from a languishing catalog chain to one of the most desirable fashion brands in the United States. Jenna is currently the Co-Founder and CEO of the direct-to-consumer beauty firm LoveSeen, and she lives in New York City with her son Beckett.

Lizzy Savetsky is a digital influencer, activist, mother of three, and the wife of Dr. Ira Savetsky, a plastic surgeon. Savetsky, a native of Fort Worth, Texas, traveled to New York for college, and after a brief return to her home state, she returned to the Big Apple. Lizzy utilizes her platform to express her style, educate people on her deeply held views, and present the Instagram show “Bashert,” which aims to assist Jewish singles in finding love.

Jessel Taank is an outspoken and unrestrained fashion publicist and brand consultant with a reputation for unconventional ideas. Jessel, who is of British-Indian origin, was introduced to her husband, the financier Pavit Randhawa, in a pub by a mutual acquaintance. They remained close friends for years before beginning a relationship. The couple tied the knot in Mexico in 2014 and had twin sons.

Brynn Whitfield is an expert in brand marketing and communications. Brynn has a passion for interior design, fashion, and organizing dinner parties at her (little but mighty) West Village apartment. Brynn was reared by her grandmother in a small town in the Midwest, who taught her essential lessons about navigating life, owning her story as a bi-racial woman, and the true meaning of hard work.

Notably, this ensemble is significantly more diverse than previous RHONY casts, as was painfully apparent in season 13 when Ebony K. Williams arrived as the first Black Housewife of New York and other veterans continued to habitually place their Manolos in their mouths when discussing issues of race.

Cohen also promised a spin-off series with OG Housewives' veterans, but the closest thing announced so far is Luann and Sonja: Welcome to Crappie Lake, a Simple Life-esque reality show starring cabaret… star(?) Luann De Lesseps and decaying home squatter Sonja Morgan.

The show premieres on Bravo in 2023 and follows Luann and Sonja as they pack their Vuitton trunks and head to Benton, Illinois to “spruce up” the town. It is expected that “mischief and mirth” will ensue.

The Real Housewives of New York will air a new season on Bravo in 2023. We will always have Scary Island until then.
