'Real Housewives of New York' season 10 premiere party: Cast members explain what makes the group work


"Real Housewives of New York" is back and better than ever!

The highly-anticipated premiere of the Bravo hit's tenth season aired on Wednesday night, and (most of) the cast celebrated its return with a star-studded premiere party at The Seville in New York City.

Returning cast members Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Dorinda Medley, Carole Radziwill, Tinsley Mortimer and Sonja Morgan were all on-hand for the lavish bash, with Bethenny Frankel not in attendance because she was sick.

The return of the same seven Housewives represents the first time in years that the full cast is returning, proving longtime fans' opinion that the show's current group is one of the best ever. AOL Entertainment was on-hand at the party to talk to the Real Housewives of New York cast about their group dynamic, owning their identities as New Yorkers and the upcoming season.

Carole Radziwill: "I think this season is a blockbuster. Everyone brought their A-plus game. We're all very much in sync -- in a good way and a bad way, we all know each other so well. It's like a family on Thanksgiving when you drink too much and get into fights. We all really know each other and are really friends or frenemies or various versions of that."

Dorinda Medley: "We're all very different personalities, but we're all very strong and independent," Dorinda said. "It's this beautiful quilt of people that, together, makes a truly beautiful group. It's very intriguing, and we're actually friends! We have our struggles with each other, but like good New Yorkers, we keep it moving and make the best of it. We're New Yorkers; we live in conflict!"

Sonja Morgan: "For New Yorkers, we just get it off our chest, say it to your face and just move on," Sonja added. "We trust each other, and we trust ourselves to go there. We've been real friends for so long! We will vent on each other. Sometimes I feel like I've earned my stripes, because I've been the whipping boy, but I'm very secure in myself and New Yorkers tend to be that way. I'm not going anywhere -- so, b--ch, vent on me!"

Tinsley Mortimer: "This show is about friendship and what we go through as friends. It's sisterly: We might love each other one day, hate each other the next, fight like cats and dogs, but we're all very close. The connections within the show are amazing, and it's really about real life."

"Real Housewives of New York" airs Wednesdays at 9 pm EST on Bravo
