Real Housewives of New York
As Sonja would say, fresh season, fresh guests, fresh everything!
Following last year's massive house-cleaning, which saw the exits of Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Kelly Bensimon and Cindy Barshop, the Season 5 premiere of The Real Housewives of New York City welcomed three new ladies into the lion's den. But how did the newbies fit in with veterans Sonja Morgan, LuAnn de Lesseps and Ramona Singer? And was the show hurting without its former first ladies of drama ready to stir things up? We offer our instant evaluations of the new ladies...

The Real Housewives of New York City's Moroccan holiday continued to go south last night when the bad blood between Jill Zarin and Ramona Singer — which hit its boiling point at the end of last week's episode — threatened to splash all over the rest of the posse.

Las Vegas, Texas, Miami, Mexico, Italy. Yes, the Real Housewives love to travel almost as much as they like a good glass of wine. Almost. Not to be outdone, the New York City cast took the term exotic getaway to a whole new level with a Morocco trip spanning three episodes. Part Sex and the City 2 come to life and part sequel to last year's Scary Island excursion (neither of which we knew we wanted), the Real Housewives of New York City's time abroad was hilarious, dramatic, mildly offensive and — believe it or not — educational! Here are the top 10 things we learned from their trip of a lifetime:

However, Alex showed her sharp tongue is color-blind when she called-out her teammates for their ignorance throughout the trip. "I love Ramona and Sonja but sometimes they do make me cringe," Alex said within hours of their landing in Morocco. "They didn't care whom they offended."

Whether she's calling Sonja Morgan a "thug in a cocktail dress" or dressing down Jill Zarin for being a phony, the usually reserved Alex McCord has been killing us with her newfound chutzpah on The Real Housewives of New York City.

The Real Housewives of New York City has returned and it wouldn't feel right without castmate Jill Zarin declaring who's she's siding with this season.
"I'm Team Brunette," she told TVGuide.com.
So where does that leave the newly platinum blonde Alex McCord?
"I hate the word 'team,'" she says and reminds us that her closest ally on the show in not a castmember, but inseparable husband Simon.
It's hard to believe, but Watch What Happens: Live is turning 100! The Bravo late-night series — which was recently renewed for a fifth season — will celebrate 100 episodes of mazels, martinis and musical performances Thursday.
