Posted on Mar 30 2016 - 2:14pm by BeachSpin


A Real Housewives of New York season 8 premiere party took place last night, hosted by Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer.  

The star-studded event took place at Beautique restaurant in NYC, and All About the Tea was in the house! Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, and Dorinda Medley all attended the bash, and our legal eagle herself, Stacy Slotnick attended to take in the reality glitz.

Ramona and Sonja looked smashing as they posed for pics, and the duo seemed to be having a blast, laughing and hugging in the spotlight. Ramona chose to wear a fitted black dress, with sheer embellished sleeves, and Sonja wore a skintight, red Herve Leger bandage dress, accessorized with strappy sandals, and a YSL clutch. 

Dorinda attended with businessman boyfriend John Mahdessian, and both wore classic black, to the party. Celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch also attended.


Ramona attended the event with her date, Robert.


Stacy scored a brief interview with Sonja Morgan, and shares her impression of the popular Bravoleb.

Sonja Morgan is a breath of fresh air. She spoke to just a few reporters, and I was lucky enough to be one of them. The event was a celebration of her businesses, distinctive travel experiences, and optimistic outlook on life set against the backdrop of a whimsical Manhattan restaurant.”

Season 8 of the Bravo franchise premieres April 6th, and promises to be a doozy. 

Sonja was crystal clear that Season 8 of The Real Housewives of New York is going to be exhilarating.”

Listen to All About the Tea‘s red carpet interview with Sonja Morgan below:

The trailer hints at Bethenny Frankel tackling a health scare and surgery, and LuAnn de Lesseps’ engagement to businessman Tom D’Agostino Jr, who once dated Ramona. The cast worries about Sonja and tearful confrontations take place.

There’s NOWHERE like NYC in the springtime!


A huge thanks to the lucky Stacy Slotnick, for doing us proud!

The Real Housewives of New York premieres next week — see you in the recaps!

    YAY for AATT and Stacy Slotnick!!!

  • Elizabeth Fisher

    Goodness… I don’t know how Sonja is able to breathe in that dress much less sit down. It is skin-tight.

  • CNN

    AATT has it going on! This is a fabulous event to be invited to. Great job covering it Stacy.

  • Chloe

    The ladies looks beautiful. NY is my favorite franchise and I’m so looking forward to snarking on Carole. Nice job, Stacy.

    After last season I think I’m done with the whole lot of HW shows. NY was my fave OC And Beverly hills. Miami New Jersey Alanta got too messy and Kandy and Phedra to nasty. This season of RHOBH is just tired pathetic and borderline psychopathic

  • RHONJ Fan

    The girls look so young and their dresses are sassy. So nice to see Ramona happy and smiling after her nasty divorce from Mario.

  • Birdie

    This is FABULOUS—LOVED IT and can’t wait for my fave RHONY! Thanks Tea and Stacy!

  • KKLS30

    Damn that little cuckoo bird Ramona looks REALLY good. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her look as genuinely happy as she does in the top photo.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Robert is a hunk! What do we know about him?

    • BetteDavisEyez1

      Eye candy for sure.

    Thanks Stacy and Beach. If any of you are interested, I am repeating some live tweets from Mellissa’s fashion show and the NJ thread.

    Sonja and Ramona look amazing. Seriously, how is Sonja looking younger? I need me some of whatever she’s got.

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    Both Ramona & Sonja look amazing. Tastefully done ladies. I can not wait for this season to begin as NYC is on of my favorites in the franchise.

  • Sunflower

    Never thought Ramona would get over her divorce from Mario. Glad to see she found her Happy Place. Wishing her and daughter Avery the best! She looks great… especially with her “new bigger bra-size”…!
    Sonja’s dress is a beautiful color…was it painted on..??

  • SassyMcAsspants

    I’m impressed, as usual, Stacy. Thanks! 🙂

  • UndergroundExpress

    Sonja looks great! Except did she borrow LuAnn’s shoes? Go Ramona with that hot date.
