A familiar face has roared its way back to the top.

Perhaps absence does indeed make the heart grow fonder.  Catch up on all current season episodes right here for all the drama, the music, and the backstabbing.

Don’t Miss: Bethenny, Ramona, the Countess and all your favorites are back this Wednesday as The Real Housewives of New York City kicks off its ninth season at 9pm on Bravo.

The season finale airs this Friday on WE TV, and you can binge all of Season 1 before then right here. Get caught up before the big dramatic reveal of how’s she’s transformed.
