Andy Cohen The Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Heather Thomson Teases ‘Bigger’ Season 13 Role As Andy Cohen Confirms Her Return To RHONY


A very familiar face will be returning for season 13 of the Real Housewives of New York.

Heather Thomson is now teasing her season 13 return. This comes days after Andy Cohen confirmed her return while appearing on the  Everything Iconic podcast with Danny Pellegrino on Nov. 5.

“You will be seeing Heather next season,” Andy said. “At this point, Heather has now known these women for eight, nine [years]. She speaks their language. She’s not afraid to stand up to them. She knows them, so there is a great benefit in bringing legacy cast members back.”

The Yummie founder then spoke with HollywoodLife and admitted how much she enjoys “dropping in” on RHONY.

“I really like dropping in on the show,” Heather confessed. “Since I left, I’ve been back. I left [after Season 7], but I never really left. I always like to touch base with the ladies, and [now there’s] all this intrigue about [my] big return.”

So, does this mean Heather will be holding an apple for season 13?

Unfortunately not. Heather quickly set the record straight and made it clear that she couldn’t return to RHONY in a full-time capacity.

 “No, I really can’t [return full time],” she said. “I wish I could on one level, but on another level, I’ve got a lot going on, which is great. I’ve got two teenagers. I’ve got two new businesses that I’ve started and listen; Housewives is a lot of work. I know it looks like, and it is — We get followed around, and we show off our lives, but really Housewives is — Especially New York, and with some of the OG’s, it’s slapstick. It’s comedy. I know it gets dark, and it gets toxic. I don’t love that part of it. I love to talk about real issues and real important things, and as long as I can lend to that on the show, then I’ll always come back.”

Heather confirmed that she has already filmed a few times for season 13 and hints that she may be filming more.

“You might,” she said while playing coy. “If it works and it makes sense, then yes. I think this season we’re trying to figure out if there’s an opportunity for more. We’ll see.”

RHONY will return to Bravo for season 13 in 2021.
