Jenna Lyons is returning to RHONY season 15 with the rest of the cast but her girlfriend won’t be on camera: ‘I joined this process. She did not’

Jenna Lyons is returning to The Real Housewives of New York City for season 15, but she has decided to keep some parts of her life private.

Despite previously being hesitant to return to the reality show, Bravo shared a teaser for the new season on Thursday, revealing that all of the cast members from season 14 will be back.

The former J.Crew director, 55, will join her co-stars Jessel Taank, Sai De Silva, Ubah Hussan, Erin Dana Lichy and Brynn Whitfield.

But one person who won’t be joining the show is her friend Cass Bird, 50.

‘I’m in a relationship, but I don’t want to mention her name. I want to keep her out of the press. That’s my promise to her. It’s off the table. I participated in this process. She didn’t do that,” Lyons said The New York Times in an interview published Thursday.

The six ladies helped restart the old franchise last summer with season 14.

“It’s there,” the housewives say in the fun video.

“Honestly, I think I’m the one who should dispel the rumors. Because… season 15 is here,” Lyons says to the camera.

‘It’s there – and so are all the ladies. The ENTIRE CAST returns to #RHONY for Season 15!,” Bravo captioned the clip.

However, since the season ended in October 2023, it was up for debate whether Lyons would return.

Last November she continued to question her return to the show, with the businesswoman admitting she had to take her new relationship into account.

While she appeared on an episode of Today with Hoda and Jenna and revealed that she has “some thinking to do” ahead of season 15, especially now that she has found love with Cass.

When the hosts asked her about her future on the Bravo franchise, she said, “I’m wondering too…”

“I did it for a reason,” Jenna continued. “I have a business and I wanted to support that business and it had a much bigger impact than I ever expected.

‘The impact it has had on people. I feel a lot of pride about that.

‘But I’m also in a relationship now, and I have to take into account how that affects not only me, but the people around me. I have some more thinking to do.’

Jenna’s concerns came just two days after she failed to give a definitive answer on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. When questioned by the host, she replied, “I don’t have an answer, I really don’t.”

Jenna confirmed her relationship with Cass during an interview with the New York Times in June 2023.

The couple became embroiled in engagement rumors just three months later when Jenna was spotted wearing what appeared to be an engagement ring in September.

Jenna answered questions about the status of her relationship during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen.

The host asked, “I want to congratulate you because I think you’re engaged, but are you engaged?”

Jenna responded, “So basically this is the story. My girlfriend, who I adore, kept telling me to button my shirt, and I said, “If you want me to button my shirt, put a ring on it.”

“We’re just really happy and she got me the ring I wanted.” When asked again if she was engaged, Jenna simply said she was “very happy.”

The designer was previously married to Vincent Mazeau from 2002 to 2011. The former couple share 17-year-old son Beckett.

The fashion industry powerhouse then began a relationship with Courtney Crangi that lasted from 2012 to 2017.

Season 14 debuted in July 2023, followed by a reunion in October.
