"The Real Housewives of New York" is filming Season 9 already. That much was confirmed yesterday on social media by LuAnn de Lesseps and Ramona Singer. It looks like this season may even give fans a glance at the wedding planning de Lesseps is doing for her big event on New Year's Eve. Her relationship was a huge focal point last season and it looks like it will be tied into this season as well.

The truth behind Jules Wainstein's departure 

Rumors have been circulating that since last season didn't produce stellar ratings, the "Real Housewives of New York" ladies are on thin ice. Jules Wainstein was the newbie last season and has already announced that she would not be returning.

According to Reality Tea, Dorinda Medley revealed that it was a mutual agreement between Wainstein and the Bravo network. Because of the ongoing divorce, she would not have been able to discuss what was happening and her soon-to-be ex-husband blocked her from allowing her kids to appear on the show. Without those two topics, there isn't much of a story for her. 

Dorinda and Sonja still at odds

Dorinda Medley is obviously returning, as is Sonja Morgan. These two have been on the outs for several months now. Morgan was upset about her snub with the Berkshires and has called Medley out several time since then. On an episode of "Watch What Happens Live," Sonja told Andy Cohen that Dorinda and her were no longer speaking. They both attended LuAnn de Lesseps' bridal shower. 

Accusations have been flying that Dorinda Medley has a drug problem, though nothing has been confirmed.

Both Sonja Morgan and Bethenny Frankel alluded to it, but Medley has denied it several times. It will be interesting to see how this will change the dynamic of the ladies. All of them will have to cross paths at some point and it will likely be sooner rather than later. 

LuAnn de Lesseps will be getting married in just a few months and has said she was not inviting all of the "Real Housewives of New York" stars. As of now, it has been confirmed that Dorinda Medley is in the wedding party and Sonja Morgan will be attending the ceremony. As for the rest of the ladies, it looks like they were left out in the cold. Season 9 is filming and the drama just keeps coming!
