The Real Housewives Of New York City Begins Filming Season 12!

The Real Housewives of New York City began filming its twelfth season last week. Many of the show's cast members took to social media to confirm that they were filming scenes for the upcoming new season of the Bravo hit reality series.

That's not all, a few days ago Tinsley Mortimer was spotted hanging out with rumored newbie Leah McSweeney along with Bravo cameras capturing the moment for Season 12.

The news comes after Bethenny Frankel announced that was she walking away from RHONY for a second time to focus on her daughter and new projects.

“I have decided to leave the ‘Housewives’ franchise to explore my next chapter,” Frankel said in a statement. “It’s time to move on and focus on my daughter, my philanthropy and my production partnership with Mark Burnett, producing and starring in shows which represent a shift in the conversation for women. With the changes in modern culture, I want to highlight the strength, confidence and unstoppable power that women have. My experience at Bravo has been an incredibly magical ride. I am so grateful to them for highlighting my entrepreneurialism and allowing me to pave the way for many women to achieve their goals. I am excited for my future. The best is yet to come.”

According to Variety, Frankel signed a deal with MGM Television and Mark Burnett back in March under which she will develop unscripted projects that she will executive produce and potentially appear on camera. According to an individual with knowledge of the deal, Frankel has recently taken meetings at both cable networks and streaming platforms to discuss producing new shows under the MGM deal.

Sources have revealed that Dorinda Medley, Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan and Tinsley Mortimer are all set to return to the series.

Barbara Kavovit, who join the cast as a "friend" last season also recently confirmed her departure from the show. The construction guru confirmed that she was not asked to return to the series.
