Ramona's Birthday Surprise

"I squealed with delight when I saw it," she tells us.


Turtle time started early for The Real Housewives of New York City's Ramona Singer and 20 of her closest girlfriends on November 18. The crew toasted Mario's bubbly lady love's birthday at Manhattan's Bar Italia and kicked up their heels beginning at noon at the reserved-for-Ramona restaurant. "My favorite part was when the music was cranking and we all started to dance," she tells The Dish.

Mixing business and pleasure, friends presented Ramona with a cake from Heather Barranco Dreamcakes embellished with True Faith jewelry pieces and topped with, can you guess?  A Ramona Pinot Grigio bottle. "The birthday cake was a work of art. The Pinot bottle looked real, but it was made from sugar. The True Faith jewelry looked exactly like my designs but again silver sugar," the birthday girl tells us. "I squealed with delight when I saw it and could not believe how gorgeous it was."

Mario even managed to get the birthday girl a bit Ramotional. "Omg Mario always finds the perfect birthday cards. He made me cry this year!" she tweeted. Taking turtle time beach-bound for the weekend, the love birds then left NYC and Ramona posted, "Good morning! So nice to wake up in our Hamptons home again. Its been awhile. Going to enjoy a relaxing breakfast with Mario!"
