Life seems like a beach for The Real Housewives of New York City, but when the ladies arrive in Turks and Caicos for some rest and relaxation, the trip isn’t exactly smooth sailing.

The island adventure unravels in four weekly episodes from June 23 to July 14, with the June 30 installment marking the series’s 100th episode.

In a sneak peek at Tuesday’s episode, the Housewives get into choppy water at the start of their tropical getaway. From Bethenny Frankel and Kristen Taekman’s feud at LuAnn de Lesseps‘ party in New York City to Ramona Singer‘s attempt to nab the nicest room on the trip – not to mention a dinner where Sonja Morgan’s drinking habits and flirtatiousness raise (perfectly manicured) eyebrows – the Turks and Caicos getaway provides no vacation from drama.

More trouble in paradise comes when Frankel confronts Morgan about her relationship with alcohol, but the conversation turns ugly when Morgan won’t listen to Frankel.

“She’s not connecting. She’s not getting it,” says Frankel. “I don’t know what translation it goes through to get to her, but she’s not hearing what I’m saying. Unless I’m speaking Japanese, but I’ve just never been known to do that.”

The Real Housewives of New York City airs Tuesdays (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo.
