Real Housewives of New York is back for season 12. We take a look at predictions for a DraftKings pool surrounding episode 2.

Social distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic means there is plenty of time for television. And this week, we’re back with another episode of a quality guilty pleasure, The Real Housewives of New York City. The Bravo staple returned last week with its 12th season and airs episode two of the new season on Thursday, April 9th. The episode airs at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Although sports is mostly on hiatus around the world, DraftKings Sportsbook is offering free-to-play pools on a variety of topics. They have been on sports and non-sports topics, and RHONY is getting a shot this week! The contest involves 12 predictions and if you get the most right, you have a chance to win $1,000.

I’ve been a RHONY fan for a few years now, and am back to offer some insight into the questions DK Sportsbook poses. Last week, I successfully answered 10 of the 12 questions. I did not expect the Jovani song to get a full airing, and I underestimated how much crying there would be in the episode.

This is based on just episode 2 of season 12, and flashbacks during the episode do not count for these hitting.

Will there be a scene in the Hamptons?

  • Yes
  • No

It’s a toss-up, but with a season premiere mention of the Hamptons, I’ll go with a trip out there. The close of the premiere in which they show what to expect on the season, we get a Hamptons trip and the usual bigger trip to a warm weather location. I’ll say why not some Hamptons early this year.

Will Bethenny Frankel be mentioned?

  • Yes
  • No

There was a brief mention of her in the season premiere at the beginning, but I think that’s it for the time being. Usually they don’t talk much about former housewives. Bethenny was a big deal on the show, but I think we see them continue moving beyond Bethenny.

How many housewives’ dogs will appear in the episode?

  • Over 2.5
  • Under 2.5

The over/under was set at 3.5 last week and it came in under with three. We saw Tinsley’s two dogs, and then Ramona and Sonja’s dogs with one trying to hump the other — fun times all around. I’m going to take the under once again and say we only see one or two housewives’ dogs.

Will any housewives’ children appear in the episode?

  • Yes
  • No

We were introduced to Leah’s daughter in the premiere episode, but I don’t think we see her as a consistent character in the episode. The other housewives’ have children, but we rarely see them. I’ll go with No for this week’s episode.

How many times will Leah mention her clothing brand Married to the Mob?

  • Over 1.5
  • Under 1.5

Leah mentioned her clothing brand several times in the premiere, which is not surprising. When one of the cast members has her own business, we hear plenty about it. Bethenny regularly discussed her Skinnygirl line. I say Leah replaces her with the branding, and so I’ll take the over.

How many times will Tinsley say Scott’s name?

  • Over 2.5
  • Under 2.5

The over hit last week, and given her fight with Dorinda over the whole situation, I think we see it again this week. The season preview suggests she is threatening to move to Chicago, where Scott lives. Maybe that drama heats up this week. I’ll take the over.

How many housewives will we see exercising this episode?

  • Over 2.5
  • Under 2.5

I took the under last week and just made it. Tinsley and Leah did some boxing, but we did not see any other workouts. I’ll stick with that this week.

Will there be a scene in Central Park?

  • Yes
  • No

We see plenty of scenes at restaurants and bars, but the Park can be hit or miss. I’ll lean no just because it does not seem to happen as often as we might think.

Will any housewife try or threaten to throw a drink

  • Yes
  • No

I’m holding out on this one and going with no. It will happen eventually, but I’m going to wait for now.

Number of crying housewives

  • Over 1.5
  • Under 1.5

I took the under on 1.5 last week and just missed out. I figured the drama would come further into the season, but I did not expect to see Ramona getting broken up over not having a man in her life. That was a curve ball that helped get this over. I’m going to stick with under this time around. Maybe we get to some yelling between Tinsley and Dorinda, but I’m not seeing a ton of crying for now.

Will Luann appear on stage

  • Yes
  • No

It’s still too early for Luann on stage. It will happen at some point, but we’ll get a build-up to the moment.
