Taank tells PEOPLE that she is excited for fans to catch up with her twin boys Kai and Rio, who are almost three years old and have experienced "a lot" of change in their lives.

"When we started filming, they were only a year and a half," she recalls. "So, you know, I think it'll be interesting to people to see them now because they weren't really talking. They were just starting to walk season 1 and they didn't really have that much of a personality yet — they were cute and funny and chubby and bouncy and that's pretty much it. But now, they've developed so much and so quickly, it is a bit of a shock to the system, I have to tell you."

Shining a light on her kids is important to Taank, as she was vulnerable about her in-vitro fertilization (IVF) journey in season 14.

"I went through so many different emotions. I really hit rock bottom, in a depression at one point. And I don't think that people talk about that part of it enough, and I really want to normalize that conversation," Taank previously told PEOPLE about her decision to open up about her experience.

Taank showcased her excitement about the season 15 cast announcement by sharing Bravo's promotional video on Instagram Thursday writing, "Let’s be honest.. it was always there!! Who’s ready for #RHONY Season 15?! 🍎 @bravotv."

Lyons, 55, also spoke out about her involvement in the series and hinted in a recent interview with The New York Times that viewers can expect her loved ones to be kept off-camera.

"I have a relationship, but I would like to not name her. I want to keep her out of the press. That is my commitment to her. It’s off the table. I joined this process. She did not," Lyons told the publication.
