You'll Never Guess Who's Leaving 'RHONY'

by Emily Lackey

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate the reality television star, Heather Thompson — beloved mother, friend, housewife, and hollaback girl. Because it is with a heavy heart that I announce that Heather Thompson is leaving Real Housewives of New York . In an exclusive interview with US Weekly, the reality star and business mogul spoke about her decision to end her Bravo run: “When the opportunity came to do this show, I had this list of pros and cons. Three years in, the pros list is just gone. They don’t exist anymore.”

As sad as I am to hear the news, I'm not at all surprised. As a businesswoman and consummate voice of reason, Heather tried hard to hold onto her integrity during the past three seasons of the reality show. Always the first person to explain the other side or offer a solution to a petty argument, Heather has kept her cool and been a good friend throughout the past three years. But she was also unafraid to speak her mind, and some of her best moments happened when she stood up to the other housewives and all the crazy they were spinning.

So while we're all still in denial about Heather Thompson leaving The Real Housewives of New York , let's relive some of her best moments, shall we? That seems like a far better idea than stepping into the harsh light of reality and accepting the fact that the Berkshire-loving, hollering housewife will never again be gracing our television screens.

So here it is: All of Thompson's best moments from RHONY:

That Time She Confronted LuAnn

'Cause I'm totally Team Heather on this one: Letting a naked guy sleep it off in a shared bedroom with your unsuspecting girlfriends? THAT is breaking the girl code.

When She Stood Up To Bethenny

Because she was only one willing to do it.

When She Was The Best Guest At Every Party

Someone get me this girl's email address so I can invite her to all of mine.

That Time She Didn't Back Down

Look at her. There isn't an ounce of doubt in this woman's body.

When She Called Aviva Out On Her Absolute Insanity

Somebody had to say it.

When She Didn't Let Sonja Walk All Over Her

Time is money, people — especially when you're wasting Thompson's.

That Time She Got All Scarlett O'Hara With The Drapes

Rightfully so, if you ask me. (See above.)

Every Time She Dealt With Ramona Like This

Really, is there any other way?

Now excuse me while I go watch the last three seasons of The Real Housewives of New York on repeat. Because I'm not ready to face this show without Heather Thompson in it.
