“The Real Housewives of New York” premiered a couple weeks ago and one of the show’s most colorful characters, Ramona Singer, is expectantly not the same as she copes with her divorce from husband, Mario Singer. And the stress seems to be getting to Ramona, on last week’s episode, the brunch fallout spilled over to Ramona’s brunch and she was not a happy camper with some of her co-stars, specifically Sonja,
“It was a brunch mess, but I wasn’t going to let it get to me, though I must admit Sonja was getting to me. It seems as if she is always repeating herself to me and never listens to me. Has this always been Sonja?!”
I can hear my mother answering this question for Ramona. If you have to ask, you already know the answer! I think it’s a trait that both women share.
“I just felt bad for Dorinda that she needed to leave the brunch I hosted in her honor as soon as everyone got there.”
I don’t understand why anyone thought it was ok to show up so late. That’s hardly better than not showing up at all. The HWs sent a clear signal to Ramona about who the new “top dog” is among the housewives.
“Do these ladies have nothing better to talk about than a dress? Talk about “telephone.” The dress was not a Herve Leger seven-figure dress. It was a Halston, a three-figure dress. It did not fall out of my car, but it was in my car that I share with Mario, and I didn’t know where it ended up ’til later (and on my body with Avery in an Instagram shot and cover photo on iPhone. Must say I love that dress.)”
Oh, if only I was a better person… I wouldn’t be wondering if Mario didn’t take the dress to give to a mistress. Given their story, it feels like something he would do. Only with the #RHONY and the RHOBH would you hear arguments about seven and, mere, three figure dresses. The other franchises would create seasons-long battles over two figure dresses, or one figure pairs of socks.
“I didn’t take the dress, and I never put the dress on, but it was graciously given to me by one of the line producers at the end of co-hosting a segment with Bethenny. When I found out Bethenny needed it back for filming on her already-cancelled talk show, I called up Saks to replace it. Unfortunately they only had a size 10 in stock, and B needed a size 0. Oh well, it makes a good story though, doesn’t it?! Even if it’s at my expense…”
Already-cancelled talk show? Ramona will cut a sister! She cuts deep. Color me easily-fooled, but I believe her story. I want to see the reported picture of Ramona wearing the dress months later.
“I have not have had Luann at my apartment since she came with Jill years ago. It was the first real conversation I have had with her since I don’t know when. I can’t believe, though, when I said if it’s about Mario, I don’t want to hear about it, she still had to bring him up! There still traces of the old Luann there, LOL.”
Well, to be fair, none of these women have changed, for the better. They’re just amped versions of themselves. I find it interesting that some of them passively bring Mario up with Ramona, others passively-aggressively, and Lu takes the aggressive route. I would like to think that it’s about friendship, but after Ramona rubbed Lu’s nose in “the Count’s” affairs, something tells me she enjoyed returning the favor. No matter how often Ramona says she doesn’t want to talk about him, his name continues to come up.
A real friend brings a hot new guy to introduce you to, not news of your low down ex moving on. Your best friend brings you a hot new guys, shirtless and on rotation! One cooks, one cleans, another does laundry, and they all live to make you happy. Mario, who?
“I was looking forward to going out with the single girls to Beautique and was happy Luann included me. I was surprised to see Kelly there, as I knew Bethenny was coming…Bethenny handled it well. I don’t know if I would have been so gracious if I was in her shoes.”
Doesn’t think she would? Ramona has the gift of understatement.
I’m an exasperated soap fan who keeps hanging on – waiting for the daytime I once loved to return to its former glory! Hey, it doesn’t hurt to have a dream. I learned to love soaps thanks to my wonderful mother and grandmother. I’ll always have fond memories of daytime, most especially of ‘Another World’, my first stoap love. The ever great, but sadly defunct, daytime shows like Ryan’s Hope, Search for Tomorrow, The Doctors, Loving, and many others keep a special place in my heart, as well.
