It was really exciting for me having my skincare event for trurenewal at Equinox. Bethenny called me right before the event to tell me she was pregnant, I started to cry and then so did she! It was really a big day - me launching my products at Equinox and having Bethenny share her great news. I was full of great anticipation for this event, little did I know there would be drama again. I always say still waters run deep and I guess Alex had enough and reached her boiling point. We all have our moments so she is allowed too!
I am a member of Equinox and by working out regularly and eating correctly I have never fluctuated more than 5 pounds above my normal weight. Equinox had fabulous spa facilities and I was flattered when they picked up the line. They even named a facial after my product and it's on their spa menu as trurenewal facial. To learn more on the product line, watch my appearance on LXTV here! You can also go to www.ramonasinger.com. I just put up 10 videos of me on different shows such as Wendy Williams (love her!) and Rachael Ray where I did a wifeswap that will have you in stitches!
By using skincare regularly, my skin looks younger than my age, so whether you use trurenewal or another product, it is important to start treating your skin when you're 25, as there are so many free radicals in the air and your skin needs antioxidants. Also, please always use sunblock SPF #30 (I like Aveeno.)
I am leaving for Africa in a few days to help out with the africafoundation.org. I will be gone almost three weeks. I will visit schools we built for children and also be on a safari called Wilderness Safari. Even though I am nervous about going for so long I think this will be a spiritual trip for me. I have so many things to do before this trip, that is why this blog is so short. It is 7 a.m. and I am getting ready to shoot mothers day clips for about six TV stations. We are suggesting great mother's day gifts and of course i am presenting my HSN jewery collection and trufaithjewelry.
Ramona it is what it is. Let the people involved sort it all out. Good luck on your new venture and have fun on your trip!
Ramona, Why are you always so reflective in your blogs, but unable to do so in real-time? You attacked Alex for relaying Bethanney's "message" at your event b/c you thought it was mean, but just 2 weeks ago we saw you on the Brooklyn Bridge telling Bethanny that she has no friends and she'll probably be alone for the rest of her life. The one saving grace is that you concede in your blog that Alex is "allowed" to have a moment. Well thank goodnes for that or you would have been voted off the island years ago.
Weren't you a little upset at the rudeness and lack of support Kelly, Luann and Jill were displaying at your skincare event?
I think you're great, even though you do have diarrhea of the mouth. You're an excellent mom and you and Mario are a great example for young couples. Happy long term marriages are very rare and I can see that you appreciate yours.
I admire your business acumen and entrepreneurial drive. Your jewelry line for HSN is beautiful and a personal favorite of mine. Congratulations on your new skincare line. The many successes you are reaping are well deserved.
This entry really didn't have much to do with the show but more so skin care, and all I have to say is thank you for the advice because you look great!
Your instincts are excellent -- trust them. I've seen a beautiful side of you this season and it's heartwarming. Jill has a negative effect on you. Stay above her, cuz well, her reputation is toast.
Ramona, you are a kick! Always a surprise. I am not sure we could be friends, however, your antics are funny. Kind of like Lucuille Ball on drugs. (I do mean this as a compliment). Hey, Ramona, I am starting to sound like you! Be safe on your trip. Jeanne
ramona, i just loved the long silver neclace you wear--- sometimes doubled-that has the cz's spaced sporadically--is that from your jewelry line?---i have looked at hsn.com but dont see that piece-- can you tell me where it is available??
I just wanted to let you know that there was a law passed in the 1980's that docs have to take their boards every 10 years. If you graduated from med school and passed your boards before that law was set into practice you became grandfathered in. Thus, Sonja's doctor most likely has not had to take his boards since 1973.
p.s. love your jewelry!
Hi Ramona, What did you think about what Jill said regarding your beautiful photo on your brochure? I thought you looked stunning, and your hair was soooo cute!!! I was really saddened and almost uncomfortable watching Jill talk about how you were "photoshopped to hell" and that your "nose looks wide", etc. I just want you to know that I think you are a remarkable woman who has raised an intelligent, pretty young lady despite your having had a very tough time growing up. You are a firecracker, and an inspiration to young women like me who have a no-nonsense, ambitious approach to life :) You rock, Ramona! Don't forget it! :) Nathalie
This comment is not meant as an attack on you as a person. I enjoy watching the show, to be honest, I find it diverting. It is amusing to see how wrapped up ya'll can become in your little dramas. You are likely far more balanced in real life than on the show since the show is about ratings and giving people what they want. Basicly, highschool behavior but all grown up with nicer things. However, it would be nice if your personas had more depth on the show but I understand that some things should be private and as viewers we do not own your lives. Still it would be nice to hear an occasional conversation that had depth and not just drama.
I'm so sorry your skincare event had such a blemish on it. I hope that your line does well! Keep up the good work on your own self renewal as it becomes you.
Good luck on your trip. Like your energy. Agree I suspect Bethenny leaks stories to the press...just look at the clip where she lets Jason know the rumor is out.....and I think she USED Alex big time to deliver the message.
ROMONA, YOU HAVE COME SO FAR THIS YEAR I HAVE REALLY ENJOYED YOU FOR THE MOST PART THIS SEASON. IT MIGHT BE WISE FOR YOU TO TAKE SIDES AND FROM THE LOOKS OF THINGS BRETANNYS WOULD BE THE BEST SIDE FOR YOU. JILL AND THE COUNTESS ARE NUTTY THAN YOU WERE LAST YEAR.
Ramona, I loved that outfit you had on when you and Sonya were at the doctors office. You should dress like that more often! It's a very good look for you!!
Finally Jill has shown what you have had to put up with for all these years. Kudos to your business sense and not taking any crap from the twin towers of the fake Countess from Bristol CT and the airhead Kelly. Hopefully at the very least Luann from Bristol CT contract will not be re-newed and we will have more interesting and classier women next year. Good Luck, I do admire you and your husband and the life you have built.
Loved you this episode! For once you were the bigger person not causing the drama and trying to mediate. Keep it up!
Thank-you for saying Alex was allowed her moment, too. In up-coming episodes I see she finally tells Jill what she really thinks! Good for Alex because you have no loss for words when something is on your mind. But, you're still one of my favorites.
I checked out your Trurenewal website and I must say, I'm impressed. I'll definately be trying your face cream. I am your age and I want to look as great as you do!
Good-Luck on your Africa trip, and God Bless!
I understand throwing in a line or two plugging a new book, product or whatever but sheesh! If I wanted to read an advertorial, I certainly wouldn't have clicked on a link for a Real Housewives *BLOG* ... Seriously, the plugging is at an INSANE level here on the Housewives blogs. I am a Ramona fan, and I understand if someone doesn't want to continue to harp on negativity of the past but that's the nature of the television program that you're on. I'm starting to feel misled coming to these blogs for the past two weeks now. I mean, this wasn't even trying to be discreet.
Ramona why would you stick up for Jill!! Jill hates you most of the time! I wish Alex would have told Jill off better than she did!! Jill is a jerk this season. Well I don't mind your upfrontness Ramona. You are for the most part ok by me. You say some rude comments, but mostly you see the truth and name it! LOL ok have fun in Africa. I think you are going to be freaking out over there. You are a pampered upper east side woman. Don't let the bugs get you!! Bye
I like your attitude over what happened. You are doing great with not taking sides.
Good luck on your new business.
I like you! You are a little crazy but a lot of fun and you seem to have a good heart. You and Bethanny are my favorites on the show. Good luck with all your ventures!
RAMONA.YOU ARE VERY UNIQUE AND HONEST EVEN SOME PEOPLE SAYS THAT YOU ARE CRAZY BUT A DRIVEN AND SUCESSFUL WOMAN DO NOT HAVE EVEN A HAIR OF CRAZY BUT FUN. YOU ARE VERY FUN.CONGRATS FOR YOUR SKIN CARE LINE EVEN JILL IS SO JEALOUS ABOUT IT.
Ramona, You don't need skincare, your face already radiates sunshine..... and your personality matches. Have fun in Africa!
You are a true lady with a generous heart. I am so happy to see success continuing to come your way and you being true to who you are despite some nasty women in the group. I loved that you told Kelly to shut up. She really deserved it. Kelly lives in la-la land. For a chick with good academic backgroud, she sure does not know how to express herself coherently.
Wow, Africa!!!! Hope you have a safe and wonderful experience out there...take lots of pix!!! Enjoy yourself!!! Neli
You clearly only watched yourself on the episode because this blog is lacking any information about anybody else but you. You should speak to Simon, and get some tips about how to blog....
You said that Alex should not have embarrassed Jill like that at your show? What about how YOU embarrassed Jill at HERS? Practice what you preach!
i'm pretty sure your contract intends for these blogs to be about the episode, not 3 in 1 advertisements.
Ramona, you know Jill is out of Control and she doesn't go off on you because she knows she's met her match. Let Jill take the punches;she's good at giving them. Good luck with in Africa.
Thanks for the 2 sentences on the show last night and the next 3 paragraphs plugging your products. So insightful.
I am so proud of you this season. You and Alex have obviously done some self-reflection and have evolved into better women. Jill and LuAnne, on the other hand, went the other route and turned into self-absorbed divas. Keep up the good work! You are inspiring to women to look great at any age and achieve their personal and professional goals! Keep working on that mouth of yours girl - you still have a way to go but we all do! You're on your way!
Yay! Have a most wonderful time. Your blogs indeed show another side of you apart from the TV show. And for that I am glad.
Ramona, I think you are a decent person at times, I really do, but sometimes you really need to just take a look at yourself before criticizing others. I do not know if I am responding to anything written in yourblogpost, as I did not read the whole thing, butI just have to say this. At your skincare party you thought Alex was really mean for saying that whole messenger thing to Jill, but there have been COUNTLESS times where you have been truly nasty. You need to think before you speak because your mouth does some crazy things! For example, when you were on the bridge with Betheny telling her that she was going to screw her life over once again. That was definitely THE MOST HURTFUL thing I have ever heard ANYONE say. I can't even imagine what possessed you to say that, it was so wrong. There are way too many more examples but if you would like specifics just watch the other seasons and maybe you'll get an idea. All of you can be such hypocrites.
Kudos to your assistant as Jill is attacking your photo she tries to diffuse the situation by talking about your skincare products. It is always smart to surround yourself with positive people!
you seem to have a great relationship with your assistant...I was happy to see you were much nicer to her this week as opposed to last week. I have an assistant and she would walk out if I acted the way you did last week.
Love you and your whole re-newed image. You really show what a caring person you are! Team Ramona!!!
That was an infomercial, not a blog. I'm tired of everyone pushing their products, we want to hear about the show!
