Ramona Singer

It was hard for Ramona to stay calm at the reunion. She explains why!

on May 15, 20090

What an intense day! At the reunion I really felt like I was being attacked. It was so heated. I sat on a couch across from Jill, Bethenny, and LuAnn, and they ganged up on me. I was just being myself and they were attacking me. I always tell it like it is, and I never try to be someone I'm not. I am who I am. I never purposefully try to hurt anyone else. But it's extremely hard to stay calm when you're being attacked.

I was very offended when LuAnn made a comment about my "crazy eyes." I'm very expressive and I wear contacts because of a vision problem. I have dry eyes, and it's a medical condition that I cannot control. It was incredibly catty of her to make fun of my appearance. It's one thing to disagree with me, but it's quite another to start name-calling. I didn't want to stoop down to her level, but I was being attacked, and I just lost it.

So how do I really feel about my castmates? I like Bethenny. I don't think she makes great choices when it comes to dating. She's single at 37 for a reason, and it's because she doesn’t date for marriage. I never enjoyed filming with Kelly. I'd film with Alex and Simon before I'd film with Kelly.

The only other thing I was to address is Bethenny's blog. She recently wrote a blog about me that was nasty. I guess she still has not gotten over my blog where I give my opinion of her dating behavior, her business criticism, and her relationship with Jill. I always shoot straight from the hip - no lies, no puns. I'm not spouting sarcastic one-liners the way Bethenny does. My dress did not look like a Christmas tree, hers did. HER dress was GREEN, not mine! Is she color blind? I am never two faced, only 8 weeks ago I wore the same dress when I was interviewed with Bethenny and she was going on and on about how gorgeous my dress was. David Meister designed it and many celebrities wear his dresses in Hollywood for red carpet events, which is how I discovered him. Enough said.

Ramona...congratultions on your personal renewal....life is a process and we become who we want to be with effort and practice. You can walk side by side with anyone with your head held high! I think that when Jill and Luanne are mean to you its just because they are uncomfortable seeing you as their equal... they still think they are "upper crust" and therefore better than you - ignore them and continue you on your own merry way. You are a kick!

Ramona. May you find the courage to climb out of the "comparison" trap. Behave as you should regardless of others' actions and you will be a much more pleasant person to be around. As you are now you are simply something cringe-worthy to see. You may not be much of a person now but it's not too late to become someone you can be proud of.

i luv you.lol.your so funny.but i think mario should really respect you more and love you more well at least some on the camera this time around because well hes making people think hes cheating on you and he has a couple girls on the side but i think you too should sit down and talk about your relasonship because well im starting to think well nevermind.but a little kiss or a simple hug on 1 show would do just fine bye.

Ramona:

I have watched the show every year since it started and loved it however, I have always had a small problem with the way you act towards people. This year, you just took it over the top as far as I am concerned.

I came from a background where my father treated my mother badly just as you claim you did. However, I always said we can live our parents lives or we can be the ones to change it. I chose to change the pattern from what I was raised in. And, I did it without having to be so god awful mean to everyone as you are. You are the most self centered, conceited, and hateful person I have ever encountered. I could not believe my ears when you told LuAnn you attacked her about her divorce to get back at her because you were upset about the situation. Who in the hell are you? God? I thought that was your husband, Mario!!!! You prance around and even talk about how good you look for your age, you go to a doctor's office and have work done on your face and then you are marketing a skin cream,LOL!!!! Do we have to buy the cream and go to the doctor and spend thousands also for it to work???

I think you should consider spending some of your money on a therapist to deal with these childhood issues you have so maybe you can learn to be a kinder person.

I recently went through a divorce after 35 years of marriage and if anyone had said to me what you did to LuAnn, I would have knocked them flat on their ass. Divorce is a very personal issue and when there are children involved, you do not want them hurt anymore than they are going to be already. You need to buy a brain or at a minimum some feelings and quit worrying about your body and your face so much. Or maybe I have it wrong, those things may be so important to you because you use them to flirt so much in your business to get your way. Maybe you are contemplating divorce and Mario doesn't know it yet. I guess time will tell.

Ramona, I really love the show and I like all of you.The episode with you and Avery in the shoe store was wonderful. The love you feel for your daughter showed so much that you didn't need any dialouge...the camera caught it all. It was touching to watch. Looking forward to next season. Say hi to Mario!

My Mother taught me to always be aware of what I say and to be kind. Also, if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all. Therefore, my comment is, you seem to be a wonderful parent.

Ramona I am a faithful watcher and truly enjoy the show. I have never written in before. But, watching you tonight, on the "lost" footage with that dog....I love my dog....that is not your dog....you have had little to no interaction with that dog....i know this is reality TV...so get real....that was wwwwwaaaayyyyy too much...in our face obvious ... that dog did not even know you!

I luv ur necklace! Its very pretty and the shape of the sun is beautiful. i was wondering if you could tell me where you got it? Thank you.

Ramona, I have a little advice for you. I think you DO have a good heart and what you said about your childhood probably is right on - that how you communicate is a reaction to watching that abuse. But, here's the advice: You come across SO much better when you say how you feel rather than when you attack. You were attacking the other ladies and you didn't respond well to getting it back. it's a shame because I do think you are misunderstood. Try it, It's called an I statement - I feel x,y,z, when you x,y,z. Or, I felt hurt... etc.. When you said that to Jill it was very meaningful. Do that more often!

Your harsh comments about the other cast members are a reflection of how u feel about yourself.

you used to be my fav ramona... this last season i could not stand you or your mouth. you hav so many double standard and you are a hypocrite. your annoying and should stay out of peoples business when it doesnt involve you. i have to turn the tv off because you drive me crazy. instead of looking at footage of yourself and claiming youre a character, you should watch it and learn to act like an adult and a normal classy lady.

You really don't understand that you are beinf filmed as youmake mean remarks, Perhaps you and Kelly should enroll in memory classes. You remind me of the high school girls who make life a living hell for the students they target.

I watch all the housewives religously. I love love love the show. I love Bethanny but i thought her dress looked alot more like a christmas tree than you! That was a pretty low blow.

who cares

I think all of you women, so called housewives (including nj ny oc atl.) are to be ashamed. All you do is worry about your look & style, spoil your kids, live a lie. You will all probably end up looking as good as Joan Rivers one day, you buy your kids cars & make them responsible for the gas purchase which is probably a $20 they took out of your purse, teach your kids the value of earning something nice and how to take care of it, stop the charade of pretending your comfortable with yourself. It is apparent & transparent of all you women that you lack a healthy view of yourselves. The real housewives of America are the ones that are out there doing volunteer work for others who can't do for themselves, they chair up fundraisers for people with diseases who may not have a tomorrow, they teach their children values such as respecting other people & avoiding trouble makers or how to get a part-time job & save the money for a car. All of you women are teaching your children how a purchase can fill a hole for awhile or how gossip & backstabbing can take the focus off of one's own flaws. You women are the most inane representation of the American woman I have ever seen. It is no wonder you've all been through 3 or 4 men (divorces). Who could stand you. Have a nice day.

About your comments and your blog. You just can't help yourself. You have to always be ripping people apart. Whether it in their face or behind their back you will say something positive and then here comes the but, they are this or they are that. Man oh man. You make me tired. I watched how each and every time someone would confront you,you would say its because you hurt my feelings and that why you said what you said about Luanne or Bethenny. Its not because you were trying to be truthful, its because you were getting even. Lame excuse for being rude and ugly. I love your jewelry, but it doesn't fit who you really are. You are a mean spirited person. With money and talent. I guess you just balance out with Ying and Yang.

Ramona...Honestly, I feel so very sorry for you!! You have so much Hate and Anger in your Heart. You are so very insecure and obviously...you have no friends. You were hateful to each and every other Housewife. And obviously, you are a pathelogical liar. I hope you are seeking some kind of couseling, it was so frightful just watching you....are you on Medication, because I must admit, your eyes are indictitive of someone on Speed!! I have NEVER commented on any TV show, I am more of a Political Head, but WOW, you NEED HELP. And then to See Mario lash out in such an immature way, well, obviously like attracts like...so very SAD. For your precious daughters sake...Seek HELP...NOW

Ramona is that true you pick the blogs you like the most to post? All of you? I thought someone else did that job. This will pass, the fighting and arguing, but somehow, you ladies will always get together when hearts get softened. I do think Ramona, you never forget. Like saying to LuAnn I was getting you back. Thats not a good trait. Why waste time and let other people get into our heads where we dwell on it. Like Bethany, I'm sorry, your sorry, lets move on. If there is another season, what will you be getting into. Lighten up Ramona, life is too short. You have spent most of yours mean and rude, and probably friends slowly ignored you. Should never have regrets. Have a great summer ladies, you were all great! Out of all the others, you had class. NJ, wait to be seen, but what I have seen, like I said, be proud.

Romona, Bless your heart, you get picked on all the time by the popular girls, and you just lash out and cut down every one around you. You probably think they deserve it, maybe your insecure, I feel so sorry for you. It was really tacky, including that butt kissing fan mail in your blog. I enjoy you on the show, your a great contrast to the rest of your crew mates, always a good laugh. Thanks

Ramona, I think you are hysterical! When I saw you dancing I laughed so hard. I don't think you have crazy eyes, don't let those mean comments stay with you. I am sad you came from a family where abuse (any kind) was tolerated. (?) You told yourself you would never put yourself in that situation again. Marios behavior towards Jill was horrible. Getting up in her face like that was extremly un-attractive. Jill handled herself very well in that situation, your husband however did not. He treated Jill, exactly how you said, YOU never wanted to be treated again. But, does that mean YOU can stand by and watch your husband treat other people like that, just as long as it isn't you. Do you understand that? Please find away to work it out without all the material/wealth you hide behind. I am sure you are a strong women but please don't become the bully for fear of being bullied.,there is a greater place in your heart and your mind to go! Do the right thing! Mario is the bully boy don't let him get you involved, You seem much smarter than that.

I'm sure you have some good bones in your body...you actually can be sweet. The only thing that really bothered me is your husband's conversations with Jill. I know you didn't jump in and push, which is awesome, but as his wife and better half, and as a WOMAN, you should have stopped him. I wonder what you would have done, or your husband, if Jill's husband ever spoke to you that way....OVER A TENNIS MATCH? SERIOUSLY? For a man of his age, class and intelligence, I would think that he would know better not to react that way to another woman, in public, over a tennis match!

Ramona,

You are really mean spirited and so very argumentative. You remind me of the type that is a "right fighter" and then you start screaming so your voice is louder and you scare others around you into being quiet.

I wish you the best but I am so sick of your mouth on the show I yell at the tv to tell you to shut up for once.

You're de-classe. The way you talk about Alex and Simon just blows me away. Didn't someone ever tell you if you have nothing nice to say then don't say it?????

The yelling and screaming from you is beyond annoying I have to turn the tv off.

While I admit that you are 100% entertaining to watch, Alex is dead on about you. You come across as a hypocrite. You come accross as Someone who can taunt, jab, insult but cannot take it when the other person calls you out on it. BTW - you do have crazy eyes and that can actually be taken as a complement not an insult. You have an expressive face, its a good thing. Don't be insulted, accept and rejoice that your features are not bland.

Ramona, I like you as a cast member on the show and I do think you do as you say. You shoot from the hip and say exactly what is on your mind. However, I feel that you can dish it out but you can't take it. Luanne and Bethenny do the same thing but in a very different manner, but nontheless it's what's on their mind and how they're feeling. If you don't want people to 'attack' you why don't you say what you want to say but in a way that isn't so 'in your face'?

Viewer

Why do you feel you had to "get back at" LuAnn? Are you still in high school? LuAnn's problems with her marriage are not your issues to share. Any issues that she had with her marriage are her personal private business, just as if you and Mario were to have some issues, those are your issues to deal with and not another person's to blab about.

Ramona: Regardless of your intentions, you come off like a high school mean girl, with about as much maturity! Good heavens!! You make a lot of comments that hit way below the belt and then you get offended when someone hits back! Mind you, the hits aimed at you are nowhere near the nasty comments you make. Frankly, you come off looking like a lunatic most of the time! Step back and THINK before the words come tumbling out of your mouth. It's not all about you, Ramona.

Ramona,

There are good qualities about you. However, they get eclipsed by your meaness. I tried to like you, I realy did, but there is a BIG difference in, "speaking the truth in love", and speaking every mean, snide thing that comes across your mind. You need to learn to bridle that tongue of yours, and so does your husband. Just because you think it, doesn't mean you should say it!
