Ramona Singer was in rare form on last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York. Lots of boozy hair flips, red-hot accusations and even a rock star moment colored the episode crazy, and the reality veteran wasted no time releasing a carefully crafted Bravo blog.
Ramona created a doozy of a line to umbrella her explanation of events going down in Dorinda Medley’s Berkshires home — labeling her behavior an “overwhelming breakdown,” leading to an “undeniable breakthrough.”
Ramona blames frustration for her high-octane aggression towards Bethenny.
“I was so frustrated at the way things were going. She didn’t even give me an opportunity to explain why I said what I said that night at dinner in the Hamptons. That is so frustrating. So manipulative. Bethenny really knew that she was going to push my buttons enough for me to react the way I did. What I am most sorry about now is that I let it happen. I should have just been as cold and indifferent the way she was.”
Ramona updates viewers on the state of the duo’s friendship, and denies that jealousy was part of their messy dynamic.
“I did think I had a friendship with Bethenny. It may not have been the perfect friendship, but it was a friendship. I think I missed the signals for sure that she really didn’t care enough ever to be my friend, except when she needed me or needed something from me. She never really cared about us. It’s never one-sided, that is for sure, but certainly not jealously. I have no reason to be jealous of her.”
Ramona pegs Bethenny as a bully — evidently unimpressed by her ex-pal’s confessional tea.
“Wow, yes wow, like really! How mean can she get? She really is a bully. I do not think she realizes what she says to others, nor do I think she really cares. That’s not about being BReal or BStrong. I call it BBully. You can’t always play the victim while being the bully.”
One of the biggest shockers of the episode involved Dorinda’s trashed guest room, discovered after Ramona left. Dorinda revealed evidence of paint-peeled walls, apparently damaged by forcefully removed light fixtures. Ramona offers her explanation — but does not say that she took care of the damage.
“As far as the paint coming off in the corners of the room, that happened because when I went to go to sleep that night everyone was already asleep. My room was lit up like a football stadium at a night game, because the lights from filming were all still up. I know that in the past the crew uses double-sided tape to put them up, so I just pulled them down. I guess I was stronger than I thought! Therefore, yes, the paint came off the wall. A little freshening up with a new coat of paint never hurt a room!”
Dorinda was upset by the startling discovery, and alleged that Ramona initially said nothing to her about the damaged property. Do you believe Ramona’s explanation?
