Did the cast of The Real Housewives of New York City really endure a cruise from hell while in Colombia for a cast trip? According to Andy Cohen, the answer is "no."
While the ladies of the show, including Bethenny Frankel, Sonja Morgan, and Tinsley Mortimer, did embark on a boat trip gone wrong, the majority of the stories being reported about the ship had "grossly misrepresented" what actually happened in South America.
“Much of what has been reported of the boat trip is completely wrong,” Cohen told Entertainment Tonight on March 12.
According to Cohen, the ladies of the Big Apple-based reality show did have a "squirrelly boat trip" during their girls trip but when it comes to the alleged fire and sinking boat, the allegations were inaccurate.
Following the incident in question, rumors began swirling which suggested the boat's engine had caught fire -- and that the ship had nearly flooded. They were even reports of a missing anchor, among other things. However, as Cohen explained, the events that took place in Colombia weren't nearly as dramatic as some claimed.
While fans are expected to see moments from the cruise on the upcoming 10th season of the show, they didn't see a thing in regard to the trip in the recently released trailer. That said, Cohen promised fans would be pleased with the new season and described the upcoming episodes as “hilarious and dramatic and shocking.”
According to Cohen, it has been interesting to see how the relationships of The Real Housewives of New York City have evolved throughout filming on season 10, especially the friendship between Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill. As some may have heard, the two women are said to be at odds after years of sharing a close friendship with one another.
In addition to the evolving friendships of the show, fans will also watch as cast member LuAnn de Lesseps is arrested in Palm Beach, Fla. following the abrupt end of her months-long marriage to her now-ex-husband Tom D’Agostino, Jr.
Season 10 of the show will include the same cast as season nine. As Cohen explained, the ninth season of the series ended on a high note and he and his fellow producers didn't want to change a thing before filming on season 10.
The Real Housewives of New York City returns to Bravo TV for season 10 on April 4 at 9 p.m.
