Real Housewives of New York City Season-Four Trailer: Sonja Morgan Is ‘a Thug in a Cocktail Dress’

The Real Housewives of New York City are back, and maybe we've missed them a little. The new trailer for the upcoming season is, at first glance, short and low on information. But there are clues, if you look for them. Jill is trying to reclaim the throne! Sonja is getting angry! And Alex McCord is taking a stand. Check it out, below.

In the first shot, we see a toast. Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon, LuAnn De Lesseps, and new cast member Cindy Barshop are doing what they do, drinking cocktails by a swimming pool, and boy does Jill look happy to be back at the head of the table. Clearly, Jill is going to try to adopt Cindy. We should have seen this coming, of course. Without Bethenny Frankel holding down Team Bethenny, the alliances will fall apart. Ramona has always been way too flighty to pick a side, and Sonja's bi-partisan. Later in the trailer, Jill, Ramona, and Sonja dance together, giddily. So we suspect it'll be Alex McCord versus the World this time around.

But it's a new season, and even Alex is willing to pose for a photo with Jill, apparently. So we can forgive and forget, too. Except, instead of that spat, Sonja and Alex seem to hate each other now. Finally, Sonja really seems to be digging her heels into this job, dramatically kicking Alex out of her house, prompting Alex to call Sonja "a thug in a cocktail dress." Oh, and Jill is hysterically crying again. And they all go to Morocco. The viewers ask, and Bravo delivers.
