I would first like to say thank you so much for your viewership and support of our show, without all of you we would not be here for the THIRD season. And what a season it will be, get ready for a rollercoaster of emotions and happenings!
My father passing away was a time for me to reflect and I ended up having an epiphany. I decided I needed to re-evaluate my life and my relationships. After realizing how much life I have to live with the people close to me and how precious that time is, I decided to recharge the woman I am and all the relationships I have in my life. I have truly renewed who I am with my husband, my daughter, my friends, my professional outlook and my businesses and even aesthetically with my new haircut and physically by eating more healthy and getting into a routine with a trainer. I have a whole new lease on life and I'm eager to see what all of you think about the new me!
About the first episode:
I was really so excited to invite the girls out on the boat. What better way to reunite the Housewives than a summer day in the Hamptons on a yacht?! I was feeling really good in my bathing suit. After working so hard at the gym, I felt like I could totally do this and loved all the compliments the ladies gave me after we set sail. I was so surprised to find out that Jill commented that I was too old to be in a bikini!! She should have said something on the boat, but I think she was too busy getting involved with disagreement I had with LuAnn.
What's up with Bethenny's offensive remark during an E! interview...you were present...that she is looking for a new'JEW' to replace Jill???? It wasn't funny...It was hurtful not only to Jill but also to many viewers.
Ramona always says crazy stuff to inflame the other women on the show, but it usually turns out to be true. She's like an oracle of truth that spews forth with verbal diarrhea. At least she's the most honest and least fake one on the show.
I cannot agree with you more regarding Jill and Luanne it could had been a different time and place. For Jill to continue to chime in on it and provide her personal opinions was way off...but you made complete sense last year stating Jill likes the underdog seems so obvicious she prefers to be in the know. Actually she appears to have a lot of time on her hands.
Ramona, You look fabulous! I think that Jill might be jealous of your body. Don't let anyone tell you different. You have a rockin bod woman! I'm rootin for you this season. Hang in there with the big guns. (Jill and Luann) Take Care, LifeInStride
Ramona you rock!! You looked great in your bikini.....I am soooo sick of LuAnn and her title. I loved when you said we don't have titles in the US. Get over it or go to Europe and enjoy your title....
Ramona, Congratulations on being positive and truthful, some people need to let things go as you have with your father and I think as some of the other cast members judging you for being tempermental do not understand the hurt you experienced with growing up, perhaps they need to know why you take such offense as you just shared it with the country and maybe perhaps they would be more understanding and quit attacking you, as absolutely no one deserves to be attacked, I have had a best friend for 12 years and we have never had a fight and as for manners like I told two other housewives, it seems to be a competition amongst you new yorkers as who has the best manners, its pretty funny....best of luck to you! Laura
Ramona you look so beautiful, what kind of non surgical procedures have you been doing. Bethany look also stunning.
Ramona, you were absolutely correct in telling LuAnn to talk to Mario about what he said. The way she and Jill were expecting YOU to fix it was manipulative. If someone has a problem with someone, they should go to THAT person! You are not Mario's mother. Don't feel bad for setting good boundaries for yourself. I'm proud of you; you're growing.
I think LuAnn was wrong and you were right. ou shouldn't be the messenger, when her issue is with someone else. Sheshould hav e the guts to deal with Mario. She seems to only want people who agree with her around. She also dishes it out, but refuses to take it in return.
I'm not on anybody's side, but I think Jill was referring to your age as far as the bikini being appropriate, not the shape you were in. But my real question is about the jewelry. You say you were showing it to girlfriends before it went into production, but on the show you mentioned a piece had been sold out. ???
Ramona, So often when you write or speak you make mention of an admirable trait or outlook of yours, then immediately follow it up with a dig at the other ladies. Sometimes its subtle, sometimes its right out there. But its almost always there. Like in this blog: "Unlike Jill and LuAnn I do not harbor ill will." When you take your usual digs, you are essentially disregarding the previous, complimentary or nice sentence. Enough with the digs! Say something genuine about you ladies or a situation and end it without throwing someone under the bus.
Love your new outlook on life. Your opinion about Jill to Bethanny was right on. You are the strongest, no hold bars, honest, person.
Ramona . . . you just keep on being you. Luann and Jill DID gang up on you so don't let them spin this into something it was not. Both were green with envy and also talk out of both sides of their mean mouths.
Im sorry but watching you Ramona on that boat crying to the girls was embarassing for me to watch. I felt bad that Mario made a comment to Luann and as a woman and a friend I felt like you shoud have said your sorry behalf of you husband. Its the the right thing to do. Instead you said that they were attacking you and you run inside the boat and start crying like a girl in highschool. You reminded me of a little girl. It was ridiculous to watch. I think my 16 year ols niece hanldes ituations better than you.
Ramona, I think you were totally right when Luann attacked you. She should have taken it up with Mario and she kept attacking you...along with her sidekick Jill. Jill just does not like to see you do well. So, your bikini looked great and good for you to have such confidence! I really liked you this episode and I think the girls gave you a raw deal!
Ramona I love you. You look great in your bikini,Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. You tell it like it is,keep being you!
Ramona, I'm loving the renewed you. Life has a way of injuring everyone & it's wonderful to see a kinder, gentler you. (Perhaps Jason can be the healer of Bethenny's wounds & she'll find it less necessary to be so harsh.)
Looking forward to this season & wishing you much success in your business enterprises.
Romona, I do like your new haircut, you look great. I am not fond of the bikini and I understand you wanted to show your firm body. When you brought the jewelry out you should have said that you wanted their opinion on it. Instead it looked more like a jewelry party!!The Yacht get together was a great idea.
OML...YOU are SO right..>WHAT is WRONG with these women? CAN you NOT support your FRIENDS business? HOW many TIMES did JILL show her WARES to EACH and EVERY ONE of us...WE are SUPPOSED TO HELP AND SUPPORT one another....I found this episode to be in such poor taste, I almost said "I'm DONE!" I'm SO glad the women that I know are not like that! Good lawd!
I hope the season get's better...R...Sorry about your dad, but good for you that you are embracing a new outlook on life!
Best wishes for continued success:)
No one should have to be accountable for someonelse's actions or words. She should have taken the issue up with your husband not you. The way those women behaved at your party was tacky in my opinion. But you know tpt is tpt no matter how much owman they have
Umm, yeah right. You do harbor things and talk about it over and over again but with different people. Mario's comment wasn't necessary and to say it to a friend makes it even worse. it shows how you guys talk to other people about the other girls. As far a i can tell, your daughter is more mature than you and mario combined. One day you'll be in Luann's shoes and you'll see how it feels when someone says something of that nature to you.
Ramona, I love watching you on this show! I think you are a hoot! LuAnn bring up Mario's comment was TOTALLY for the cameras. It was so obvious and your blog only confirms that. I agree with you- take it to the source. If she was upset with Mario, she should have said something in the SIX intervening weeks. Doing it during a nice afternoon party was classless and unfair to you.
You really do look renewed! I love the new haircut. I look forward to watching you more this season. :) And don't listen to Jill! It was your party and you can bikini if you want to! You looked great---- for any age!
Your new hairstyle looks beautiful on you. You also looked fabulous in your bikini. It was obvious Jill was so jealous she didn't know what to do. LuAnn just seems bitter. And let me tell you, if Jill had the body for a bikini...she'd be walking all over the Hamptons in it!!
I don't always like the things you say, you have a sharp tongue and can be extremely judgemental. However, you look beautiful and I appreciate that deep down I can see you are a decent person.
Best of Luck.
Ramona, I really hope this season you have turned a new leaf. After this first episode, I'm very excited about seeing more of you. I think the new you is great! Keep it up and don't let some of the negative ladies get to you and pull you into their pit. You were very right about the situation with Mario. If LuAnn had a problem with something Mario said, she should have taken it up with him. You don't control your husband any more than she can control the weather. Maybe she wants to make you as miserable as she is??? Just a thought.
"Countless" is a hypocrite. She goes way past standing up for herself, and focuses on making people feel uncomfortable in public. BTW, I thought "countless" basically meant that she was a 0 now, not she was w/o the count. Which is it? Personally, I love it as statement on her, and from here on out will refer to her as Countless. Your husband is awesome!
Ramona, I think LuAnn should have waited until a later time or even spoken with Mario in person. You invited them on to a yacht for fun afternoon and if they wanted to fight they should have just stayed home. I sometimes think you are too defensive, but at least in this episode I felt you were trying to stay calm and LuAnn just kept pushing it...
I agree that Luann shouldn't have brought up her issue with your husband during the yacht party. That's tacky - it was neither the time nor the place for that. You and Luann are a lethal combonation - she's hyper-sensitive and you're a bit too blunt at times. I don't see the point of you guys being friends. Jill was awefully snarky toward you during the yacht trip - seems like she sided with Luann as an excuse to attack you.
Two things: First, I think you look great and if I had your figure I'd wear a bikini too.
Second, I felt bad for you when Luanne confronted you about Mario's comment. It's ridiculous of her to expect you to apologize for him and confront him for her - she's not a child and she's not defenseless. She should confront Mario herself. But then of course there wouldn't have been any drama.
Speaking of drama, It's looking like it's going too far this season. It just isn't fun watching people fight constantly and then drink heavily to manufacture a good time.
So many times...all of you want to talk...without listening. It gets frustrating for us viewers....your husband was rude and should apologize for it. You overreacted...badly and should understand...Luann is going thru somehting really painful and hard...and it's not the tittle but respect for another human being. good luck with your renuewing your self.
You look great in your bikini and have a right to wear a bikini no matter how old you are and no matter what other people think of your body!!! I disagree with Jill's comment about that. I also disagree with Jill and the countess being offended with you showing your jewelry. That is a fun thing to do! Alex is the most sensible of the women. Alex was right in saying that the countess should complain to Mario directly if he said something to offend her. I am sure he was only joking anyway. The countess needs to go dutch when she invites her girlfriends somewhere, otherwise nobody will go anywhere with her, and she will not have too many friends left if she expects them to pay for her whenever they want to go somewhere with her.
I can already tell it is going to be a heated season! I think LuAnn needs a reality check and stop with all the Countess nonsense. I really thought that was uncalled for for her to bring that up with you and at the party that YOU arranged. I do not know how in the world she ever got a book deal or who in the world would actualy buy it and take her advice. She is a very classless women.
By the way, your body rocks and her hair look great!
You are a great person and had a wonderful idea to get the girls together for a bit. You even did Jill a favor, respecting her feelings and not inviting Bethany. Did that get highlighted? NOPE! Luanne just wanted to pick a fight with you about Mario and it's obvious that's the only reason why she went there.
You make me laugh, 0-60 in 1 second. LuAnn needed focus on her. I love Mario (and his sense of humor)and LuAnn is intimidated by him. You look great!
Your hair looks wonderful this season and being in such great shape you look terrific in a bikini, kudos to you for all your hard work!!!
You are correct in your opinion on how women should empower each other. It seldomly happens and its sad. I wish you the best of luck in your jewelry business!!
Ramona you look beautiful and healthy! Jill and Luann look like they are going to stir up all kinds of trouble. I noticed one thing about the show last night......y'all are talking soooo fast this season! It was insane! haha Enjoyed the show and you looked fantastic in the bikini!!
Don't listen to Jill she must be jealous, you look Great in a bikini. If you got it flaunt it. Bikinis are not just for the 20-somethings. What else did you do - - you look a few years younger.
In regard to LuAnne and her Countess title: she needs to shed it along with the Mrs. title. You were so right to say in the US we don't have titles like that here. Who is LuAnne trying to kid, what does she think it means? A Countess title in the US pretty much means nothing - again, since her husband left her for another woman it should mean nothing to her now. Hence, she is Countless.
I saw one of your jewelry presenations segments on HSN and it was fantastic! Your line is timeless and classic! Keep up the wonderful work and let the snarkiness of the haters roll on off! Your were fantastic! Don't let the others blow out your candles so theirs can burn brighter! I look forward to seeing your new jewelry pieces as time goes on!
Though I do think LuAnn did not need to pick this battle with you that day, I think you acted like a five year old in response. You need to learn to act like an adult and tone down the crying spells and hissy fits.
Your hair style looks great- you look so youthful in your new flirty do! Luanne was being ridiculous. What did she expect you to do- "Mario, you hurt Luanne's feelings- now you need to go apologize" You are his wife, not his mother. You were right to be confused by this. It was silly and way blown out of proportion. I am surprised the Jill added to this petty- pity party.
Hi Ramona, I just wanted to tell you that whatever you are doing, keep doing it!! You look fabulous!! Did you find the fountain of youth? If so, let me know where it is. I loved your new hairstyle too!!
You've voiced quite a few opinions about the other housewives in the past....why would you want to be around these ladies if this is how you feel? I do agree tho...if LuAnn had a problem with Mario, tell him not you. As for Jill...She has to be in the center of all drama....take a note from Bethanny. Tell Jill to get a hobby!!! Unless of course, nosiness is her hobby!
You look great, Ramona. The other housewives were seriously hating on you about the jewelry being displayed. So What? You were sharing about what's going on in your life, and the jewelry is a part of it. I thought it was a fun thing, and I didn't understand why they should get upset. It was a nice gesture to have them all on your boat, and they couldn't just relax and have a good time. Invite Bethanny next time! Alex was cool too. LuAnn was classless--she needs to practice what she preaches. Stay strong, R! I really appreciate that you've gone through therapy to deal with your father issues. It makes sense--other women will be helped as a result of what you're sharing.
