After weeks of speculation and gossip, Bravo has finally set a date for the Real Housewives of New York season 13 reunion.
On Tuesday, August 24, Andy Cohen confirmed on RadioAndy that the RHONY season 13 reunion would film on August 25.
From the looks of it, the reunion will be filmed virtually as the New York Housewives are currently scattered around the world.
Luann de Lesseps is currently in Europe, and Ramona Sing is still in Aspen, Colorado, so unless the ladies are flying back to New York overnight, the reunion will be filmed virtually this season.
The news seems odd and not on par with the normal protocol for the Real Housewives reunions. Andy hasn’t asked for viewer questions on Twitter as he normally does with every reunion. Plus, filming an in-person reunion would be an easy task for the New York Housewives franchise as production, Andy, and all the Housewives are based in New York.
It will likely be a few weeks before the reunion airs because of editing, so it’s most likely that RHONY will go on brief hiatus after next week’s season finale episode.
Speaking of the RHONY season finale, the Real Housewives Franchise account on Instagram reports that Bravo cut down the number of episodes in season 13 midway through the season.
Per a source, “I have it on good authority that RHONY this season got cut down with episodes midway through. Ramona confirmed in May that the season was going to be 20 episodes, but it got cut down to 17.”
“Noticed how next week is the season finale, but the midseason trailer (which was only released a few weeks ago) showed an ice skating event, a group scene with Martin boxing, etc.? It’s all been shoved to a lost footage episode,” the source continued.
The Real Housewives of New York City airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
