Everyone knows that April showers bring May flowers. So while we wait out all of those torrential downpours, we’re looking forward to spending some quality time indoors with all of our favourite reality stars and housewives on Slice in spring 2023.
Luckily for us, many of our beloved franchises are finally returning. In April, we’ve got the fourth season of Below Deck Sailing Yacht to look forward to, for example. And in May, the OG Orange County Housewives return for Season 17, with former RHOBH star and new friend Taylor Armstrong now one step closer to clutching one of those coveted, polished oranges. May is also the month that the newest season of Real Housewives of Atlanta returns for its milestone 15th season, and you know these women will bring the drama.
Looking for some reality escapism of your own this spring 2023 on Slice? There are also new episodes of Girls Trip, RHONY and RHOM to look forward to. Miss an episode or looking for more?

Of course, you can always watch Slice daily on TV with your cable package, so you never miss the drama.
Below Deck Sailing Yacht, season 4
Pack your bags and set sail on a new season of love triangles, boatmances and a tidal wave of tensions. In the fourth season, Captain Glenn Shephard returns alongside department heads Chief Stew Daisy Kelliher, first mate Gary King and engineer Colin MacRae. They’re joined by new crew members Chef Ileisha Dell, stews Lucy Edmunds and Mads Herrera and deckhands Chase Lemacks and Alex Propson.
Once again, the action takes place aboard Parsifal III, as these crew members set sail in Sardinia, Italy. There, Captain Glenn will take a bigger leadership role in the hopes of getting his team in shape, but that won’t sit well with everyone. The new season also promises two different love triangles, shocking hookups, a gruesome guest injury, two potential season-ending engine failures and a fire. In short, it sounds like this will be one of the most unpredictable seasons yet.
The Real Housewives of Orange County, season 17
How powerful is the Ultimate Girls Trip spinoff? Powerful enough to bring former players back into the mix. Following a stint on the second season of RHUGT, Tamra Judge is back on the 17th season of the Housewives that started it all. Tamra, as you’ll recall, left the series in Season 14. Meanwhile, fellow RHUGT star and original Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Taylor Armstrong also appears this season as a friend of the Housewives.
“I’ve been talking with production for about two months now,” Tamra reportedly told Teddi Mellencamp on their podcast, Two Ts in a Pod. “And I wasn’t really sure. Were they gonna ask me back? Not ask me back? I really didn’t know.”
Once her return was finalized, Tamra agreed to break the news on Watch What Happens Live — but only if she was allowed to tell Vicki Gunvalson first, since Vicki was not asked back. “I wanted it to come from me,” Tamra added. “I know that it hurts. If the roles were reversed, it would sting. I would be happy for her, but it would sting.”
Heather Dubrow, Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter are all returning, but don’t expect to see Noella Bergener and Dr. Jen Armstrong when the new season kicks off.
While the premiere date has yet to be released, you can watch season 17 of RHOC on Slice or catch up on the Global TV app or STACKTV with Amazon Prime Video Channels, fuboTV, Rogers Ignite TV and Ignite SmartStream.

The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip, season 3
Speaking of Ultimate Girls Trip, this spring, new episodes of the Thailand-based adventure continue as eight housewives from across five of the series shack up for the ultimate drama. As we saw in the premiere, Heather Gay was immediately in the hot seat following Jen Shah’s guilty plea, which didn’t bode well for her and Whitney Rose’s ever-struggling friendship.
Loveable concierge Pepsi probably had no idea what he was getting into with these ladies, but now that Leah McSweeney has shown her true colours to the rest of the cast and the Bad Weather has matched some of the dark moods, we can only imagine what other drama is in store for this eclectic group as their vacay continues.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Season 15
Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Shereé Whitfield, Drew Sidora and Marlo Hampton are the five peach-holders when Atlanta kicks off its milestone 15th season this May. Expect all kinds of personal and professional drama to unfold as these ladies jump over hurdle after hurdle to try and get to a healing space. Add in ruined friendships, accusations and divorce news, and this will be one of the most challenging seasons yet for our leading ladies.
Need more? This season we also have some fun cameos to look forward to. In addition to appearances from the friends of the housewives, Monyetta Shaw and new cast member Courtney Rhodes, Cynthia Bailey, Kim Zolciak-Biermann, Lisa Wu and DeShawn Snow all make cameos throughout the new episodes.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey, season 13
The tension between Melissa Gorga and Teresa Guidice has never been as thick as it has been this season, with Teresa’s upcoming wedding to Luis Ruelas causing fight after fight. So far, we’ve watched those two bicker over everything from invites to bridesmaids to the kids — with plenty of input from Joe Gorga.
Meanwhile, it seems unlikely that Margaret Josephs and Jennifer Aydin will ever learn to get along, and Dolores Catania just can’t get through to Frank that she, too, deserves happiness with a new guy. Then there’s the mysterious Danielle Cabral drama with her brother that the women can’t seem to let go of. Is there actually more to that story, or are the ladies just clamouring for a new storyline? We’ll have to keep watching to find out.
The Real Housewives of Miami, season 5
While we all await summer in our Canadian corners, we can at least continue to soak up the sun with the ladies of Miami as their drama continues. The fifth season continues to peel back the layers of Lisa and Lenny Hochstein’s divorce, but there’s also a drama-filled trip to the Bahamas to look forward to.
Add in Adriana De Moura’s bad behaviour towards Alexia Nepola and Marysol Patton, as well as an over-the-top finale party hosted by Guerdy Abraira, and there is a lot to unpack as the back half of the season unrolls. You may also want to stock up on mojitos because there are also the explosive reunion show episodes to look forward to as we inch towards summer.
Below Deck Down Under, season 2
The newest Below Deck spinoff is expected to set sail on its sophomore season soon, and while not all casting has been confirmed, we do know that Captain Jason and Chief Stew Aesha Scott are returning for another round. While fans know Scott from her time on Below Deck Mediterranean, Season 1 was a big learning curve for newbie Captain Jason. Now, he plans on bringing those learnings to the new season.
“We were thrown a lot more curveballs than season 1,” he reportedly dished on Hannah Ferrier’s Dear Reality, You’re Effed podcast. “So that’s going to be interesting to watch. And I think having the foundation after season 1, we really did well in season 2… Knowing that Aesha was coming back … Season 2, we wanted to up the game a little bit.”
No official release date hasn’t been announced, but keep your eyes peeled for Below Deck Down Under season 2 on Slice or catch up on the Global TV app or STACKTV with Amazon Prime Video Channels, fuboTV, Rogers Ignite TV and Ignite SmartStream.
