The Real Housewives of New York City will be treating viewers with a huge serving of drama this season, according to LuAnn de Lesseps, who is set to return as a full time cast member.

“I’m pretty sure I’m back full time. I think I’ll be holding an apple,”  the Countess  told NY Post. She  was demoted from “Housewife” to a recurring “friend of the Housewives” last season but now fans can expect more of  de Lesseps, along with the return of former cast member Bethenny Frankel, who apparently gets along with the former model.

“I didn’t know what it was gonna be like, I thought it was going to be awkward but it’s actually turned out to be good,” the Countess told People. “We get along really well so it’s like old times … it’s kind of like the good old days of the Housewives.”

However, the case is not the same for the rest of the housewives. “Nooo, never!” said the Countess, who wouldn’t reveal who clashes with Frankel. 

“We’re eight now, we’ve added a new Housewife,” the Countess continued. “I must say, she is doing great because we all know her. It’s not like someone who you don’t know who just comes in and you are like, who is this person? She has the same lifestyle, so I think she’ll be a good addition.” 

So what kind of drama can fans expect for season 7? Apparently it’s not the usual  LuAnn de Lesseps versus Ramona Singer feud. “You are going to see a different dynamic between Ramona and myself, it’s changed for the good,” she revealed. 

“We just came from the Housewives trip. That was pretty crazy,” she added. “We always say to each other when we start the season, ‘What are we gonna come up with this time around?’ We don’t make this stuff up. It all stems from what is really going on with us so I was thinking, ‘What kind of drama is there really gonna be?’ Because God knows, the show doesn’t work without some drama. And you know, it just happens.”
