The Real Housewives of New York returns tonight, June 4, for another dramatic season on Bravo, but it will be minus previous fan favorites like Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Kelly Bensimon, and Cindy Barshop, who all got the ax after last season.

Along with veterans LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan, the fifth season will introduce three new ladies: Aviva Drescher, Heather Thomson, and Carole Radziwill. And the claws are already out, according to Singer, who told Celebuzz in January that “there will be plenty of drama!”

In honor of tonight’s season premiere, Celebuzz is celebrating with the hottest Housewives bikini moments (across all the franchises.) Click through the gallery to see these women sizzle in their skimpy swimwear.

Back in December, Singer gave us the inside scoop about the fifth season in the Big Apple.

“This upcoming season is a whole new experience. We’re all friends, but there will be drama!” Ramona told us.

Meanwhile, the Countess seemed positive about the new season — and the new gals, revealing “So far so good, but you never know what is going to happen. With girls, there’s always going to be drama.”
