Ramona Talks Producing '50 Shades of Grey' Parody
RHONY stars Ramona and Countess LuAnn helming the off-Broadway parody of the racy book.
Real Housewives of New York City stars Ramona Singer and LuAnn de Lesseps are about to get dirty on Broadway, but not in the way you think: the 'Wives have just signed on to produce a new production of the musical parody of 50 Shades of Grey, titled 50 Shades of F****d Up.
The unauthorized spoof, based on the notorious best-selling novel by E.L. James, features 14 original songs that promise to "knock your socks or pants right off." The website even features the actors portraying the lead characters, Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, surrounded by underwear-clad, whip-weilding performers.
For Ramona, signing onto the project was a no-brainer. "I couldn't believe this cast of only 4 people could keep me on the edge of my seat but they were just so funny and so talented!" she tells the Dish. "I knew immediately that I wanted to get involved in any way I could to take this to Off-Broadway and spread the word!"
Ramona also assures fans of the novel who may have their doubts of the parody version that 50 Shades of F****d Up does not disappoint. "When I first went to the preview, I really did not know what to expect," she says. "I laughed and laughed the entire time. It was so beyond entertaining. It is a very difficult task to keep me in a seat and hold my attention for two hours but I could not get enough of it."
If this first foray into showbiz won't grab RHONYC fans' attention, we don't know what will.
