Exclusive: The 'Real Housewives' Personal Christmas Photos!

Wondering what all your favorite Real Housewives are doing for the holidays? We’ve got the pics of all their Christmas trees, cookie baking, gingerbread house-making and partying!

This is one busy, busy holiday season for the cast of Bravo’s Real Housewives — whether in NJ, NYC, or LA! Even though they’re still filming and trying to get ready for the New Year, Kelly Bensimon, Michaele Salahi, Caroline Manzo, Jill Zarin, and many others shared some of their personal holiday photos with us — and you!

Here’s what the NYC housewives are all up to:

Ramona Singer: “We going to going to head to Southampton,” Ramona says. “I’m going to make my homemade butter cookies that you role out and put sprinkles on (the old fashion way that no one does anymore). That’s tradition like my mom used to do. And we have lots of friends out there, so we will have people at our house and we will go to to their houses. We have a lot of fun stuff planned, like dinner parties, so it will be nice.”

Sonja Morgan: “I’m going to my sister’s home in Virginia for Christmas with all of my siblings and the whole family,” Sonja gushes. “Then, I go on my yoga retreat to juice, steam, do yoga and clonics to be ready to ring the New Year balanced and fresh.”

Kelly Bensimon: “She is literally staying in East Hampton with her daughters for two relaxing weeks beginning Dec. 22,” a friend of Kelly’s shares. “They may plan a trip to Miami at some point though for New Year’s Eve.”

Alex McCord: “We are going to Dallas to spend Christmas with my mom and extended family,” Alex and her husband, Simon van Kempen, say. “[We also] plan to do a holiday card before heading out. Whether it’s via the postal service or email will depend on how many snail mail addresses we can find!”

Countess LuAnn de Lesseps: “My kids are going to visit their father in Europe this Christmas and Jacques and I are heading to Lake Tahoe for the holidays for skiing and relaxing,” LuAnn tells us. “I’m glad to get this break and I haven’t been skiing in two years so I’m so ready to jump on the slopes.”

Jill Zarin: “Jill is spending time with her parents in Boca,” a source close to Jill tells us. “Then she’s heading off to Aruba over New Year’s.”

The Real Housewives of New York City wish you and your families a happy holiday season!
