List Rules Vote up your favorite cast members who have ever appeared on RHONY, and vote down the ones you just hate!

From Ramona to the Countess, this list contains information about the Real Housewives of New York, ranked from best to worst by your votes. They're entrepreneurs, mothers, and heavy drinkers, but what qualities make some women your favorite Real Housewives of New York? No matter what type of New York housewife you prefer or where you grab your brunch, something on this list will appeal to your cultivated taste. You are a RHONY viewer, after all. Class comes naturally to these ladies and, by proximity, you.

Who are some of the best RHONY cast members? It's no question who's been there the longest. Ramona Singer starred on RHONY since the very first season. Bethenny Frankel, who previously appeared in seasons one through three, returned to the show in season seven to the delight of viewers everywhere, and to the chagrin of Jill Zarin.

Luann de Lesseps may be known as “the Countess,” but sometimes her elegance can be a bit much for the other ladies. Other women who are featured on this top RHONY cast members list include Sonja Morgan, Alex McCord, and one-season-wonder Cindy Barshop.

Which RHONY stars are the all-time best? Take the time to vote below, but don't be surprised if they take these rankings personally.
