RHONY Blog Recap: What They're Saying About the Ramona-LuAnn Blowout
Pretty much everyone's on Team LuAnn, except for one of the new 'Wives.
It was ON last night when Ramona Singer and LuAnn de Lesseps threw down in the middle of Central Park (at Bethesda Fountain, in case anyone wants to go check it out), and on their blogs this week, pretty much all of the Real Housewives of New York City are weighing in on the big brawl.
In order to make things a bit easier for you, here's the choice nuggets from each Wife in regards to World War 'Wife, among other things, this week:
Ramona: "LuAnn is very passive-aggressive, which can be equally offensive, and hurtful. I felt pushed against a wall at the reunion. Regardless, I should never have brought up her daughter. People make mistakes, and it's important to acknowledge and learn from them. Children are off-limits. I apologized immediately and repeatedly. I'm not quite sure what else LuAnn is looking for? ... When the word "blackmail" came out of her mouth, I was shocked. It sounded like a line right out of a movie. And just like movies, this story was completely fabricated! It is difficult for me to know what else to say about it because there is no truth to it. Not only does blackmail sound ridiculous, but what rewards could I possibly gain from it?"

LuAnn: "Overall, I thought my talk with Ramona went as well as could be expected -- since she feels that she didn't threaten me and I know what I heard on the phone that day, even if she denies it. It's a case of "she said, she said." I'd wanted to clear the air with Ramona and move forward, and, in the end, I decided to put this behind me although I do feel that I made a deal with devil."

Carole Radziwill: "During "Showdown at Bethesda Fountain" in Central Park -- cue theme to Gunsmoke -- I realized why I feel comfortable around Ramona. She grew up with yellers and screamers and so did I. I didnt even hear my own voice until I was in high school. My favorite moment of this argument, though, is when Ramona, mid-meltdown, pauses to admire her shellacked fingernails. Luann doesn't seem impressed, even that they last three weeks!"

Heather Thomson: "As you see, Ramona took a shot at me again in this episode during her lunch with Aviva. And while I agree that I have a lot to say and that it certainly appears that I talk A WHOLE LOT, I don't agree with the "interrupting" comments. My "engaging in a conversation" is a sign of enthusiasm, and when Ramona (of all people) gives me grief about it, it is truly the pot calling the kettle black. I mean, did you see her conversation with LuAnn? It seems that everyone has the same issue when communicating something to Ramona that she does not deem important." Read Her Full Blog Post
Sonja Morgan: "When Ramona feels her words are challenged she feels she has to defend her integrity with the facts. Ramona had told Lu, "If you keep bringing it up I will have to bring out the particulars regarding your parenting, so don't push me. Drop it." Does this constitute a threat? ... Ramona's comment was that LuAnn was a weekend mother, not a bad mother. Still, Ramona should have never gone there. I still wish Luann would let it go. It's all getting old. You gotta laugh when Ramona vacillates and says "I don't have time for this! I don't even have time for my nails. I get these shellacks now. They last three weeks!" Okay, so now we have time for petty fights with our girlfriend! You can always count on us Housewives for comic relief at just the right time." Read Her Full Blog Post
