The Real Housewives of New York City season 3 episodes list:
In the drama-filled season three premiere, the ladies are spending their remaining summer days together in the Hamptons, but friendships and alliances have shifted significantly. Ramona, Jill, LuAnn and Alex all enjoy a sun-filled day on a yacht that Ramona has commissioned for the day – until nasty comments and tears break loose. Jill shares that she is angry with Bethenny and that the two haven’t spoken in months. Meanwhile, after having spent the summer falling in love, Bethenny is back in Manhattan, posing nude in a photo shoot for PETA. LuAnn and Jill give Kelly a chance at friendship and meet her for lunch. The three women catch up on lost time and Jill clues Kelly in on her issues with Bethenny. Similarly, Bethenny and Jason are lunching in Montauk and Bethenny shares some details of her own with Jason. The next day, Bethenny and LuAnn meet for an afternoon cocktail to catch up, but LuAnn comes with an agenda – blindsiding Bethenny by bringing up yet another issue that she didn’t see coming.
Still in the Hamptons, LuAnn and her kids get a surprise visit from Rosie who is no longer their housekeeper but is still concerned about the family as a whole. The Singers and the Van Kempens meet for dinner and the subject of a comment Mario made to LuAnn comes up. Ramona chastises Mario for the comment so he decides to make a peace offering and leaves LuAnn a voicemail and an invitation. LuAnn isn't so sure about Mario’s voicemail and leans on Jill for advice. Bethenny and Jason head out for a romantic dinner and Jason asks Bethenny to move in with him. It's Labor Day weekend and both Ramona and LuAnn decide to throw parties – the issue becomes which party will the ladies go to? Kelly arrives at LuAnn’s with a secret to share with the other women. Over at Ramona's, Alex and Simon try to make a discreet exit so they can stop by Jill’s, but Ramona will have none of that.
The women are all back in Manhattan – including LuAnn who drives in from the Hamptons with daughter Victoria to attend some of her favorite fall events in the city. The two commiserate over Kelly’s decision to pose in Playboy while Victoria shares that some of her high school friends think LuAnn is a “MILF.” Kelly takes daughters Sea and Teddy out to casually drop the Playboy bomb on her girls.

LuAnn and Jill are as bold as ever – taking the opportunity to pin Alex down and to get the dirt on what happened with Bethenny at Ramona’s Labor Day party. Jill and LuAnn make a snarky comment about Alex’s kids’ behavior over Labor Day and a slow boil begins within Alex. Kelly is on set for her Playboy shoot looking as hot as ever, while Jill and LuAnn attend the Jill Stuart Fashion. When Bethenny arrives, she and Jill face one another for the first time since their friendship fell apart.
Smack in the middle of Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week, LuAnn and Kelly are at a show when Bethenny arrives.
