Unconditional Love

Ramona talks about her relationship with her daughter, Avery, and recaps the showdown between Jill and Bethenny.


I was touched and surprised that Bethenny told Alex first about her engagement. I did not realize how close they had become. I am getting to know Alex better and now I do understand why Bethenny would reach out to her. Alex is happy, grounded and secure. She is not threatened or intimidated by someone else's success or achievements. I find myself calling Alex and updating her and she with me on what is going on with our lives. Who knew this would happen?! It just shows you can renew a friendship at any time and I am so happy I did with her.

I have to tell you, I got choked up again watching my scene with Avery. I cannot believe what a wonderful young lady she has turned out to be. I really did not have a lot of love in my household growing up When I had Avery I could not believe the feelings that overcame me when I held her in my arms. I have never experienced that depth of emotion. It was like waves of love crashing against my heart. This is what I meant when I said to Avery, "You taught me what love is." I am becoming more open with my daughter and exposing my emotions more. I really wanted her to have a major part in renewing my vows with Mario, and I wanted her to understand why this was important to me. My greatest achievement in life is my daughter Avery. I am truly blessed to have her. She really has taught me what unconditional love is, and has helped me open my heart and take emotional risks. My life would be so different without her and I thank God everyday for bringing her into life. Even though I love Mario tremendously, anyone who has a child will tell you how different the love you have towards your child is

There could not have been a more perfect time than the Gotham party for Jill to bridge the gap with Bethenny. For goodness sake, last year all summer long Jill was helping Bethenny lick her wounds over her breakup. Bethenny was thinking she may never find the right man and Jill was there the whole time consoling her. How could Jill not go over and congratulate Bethenny?! I was so upset when I saw how hurt Bethenny was over Jill's lack of acknowledgment. This was never aired and was edited out, but I went running over to Jill as fast as I could and said, "Bethenny is leaving. She is so hurt and upset by you! She's crying; you must go over now before she leaves!" Jill kept saying to me, "No, I have to wait for Bobby." I do not know why she needed him. I was freaking and telling her that if she didn't go talk with Bethenny, their relationship might never be repaired. I went home so upset that night. Poor Bethenny was hysterical in the car with Mario and I on the way home. It should have been one of her happiest nights ever and Jill ruined it.


Sonja is a spitfire and I really enjoy her candidness. She embraces life wholeheartedly and has no pretenses. Though we were very friendly many years ago we never had time to become close friends. We were single, dating, jet setting all around, and already had too many friends to count. It will be interesting to see how our friendship develops now that we have reconnected and can spend more time together.

I got a huge kick of seeing Kelly with her girls. I thought the whole scene was adorable. Kelly, I learned, is great one on one, but if there is more than one adult in her company, things go amiss. I for one know when cooking pancakes on a stove top and not on a preheated griddle it takestwo to three tries to get the temperature right in the frying pan. You always have to throw the first couple out, or in Kelly's case, give to the horses!

Sonja: A Fun Night With a Younger Man Never Hurt Anyone

Sonja thinks she may have found this season's pot stirrer and wonders if Ramona is really happy.

Welcome back to the bitches who brunch!
I’m disappointed to see that the girls are being vile and continuing to attack me and claim that I do not have legitimate business deals going on. Especially to Bethenny, who has not seen us frequently since she had little Bryn. Gawd forbid Bethenny believes this horse sh--. Luann, Kristen, Heather, and Carole all claimed that I am not really a businesswoman, that all of my ideas are not coming to fruition, that I don’t work every day, and that I didn’t make the toaster oven. That should get a few laughs from those who know. But even if I was not successful and were delusional, as the girls say in Bethanny’s kitchen, what kind of friends badmouth another friend like that? Right now I need friends who are going to support me. It also upset me that the other women said that I was drinking too much at Luann’s housewarming party! The women know that I wasn’t drunk that night, and I’m surprised that Heather would try to allege that I went from cider to beer to drunk. I didn’t stay to party with Heather and Luann and try to keep up with them. I left to go to Ramona’s, where I was a guest. I am running my businesses and raising my daughter, and I can’t afford to have that kind of toxicity in my life, especially with investors involved. I hope that with the release of my fashion and jewelry line that the girls will change their tune and accept that I am and have always been an independent businesswoman. Sometimes I think they just want to keep me where I was. That was comfortable for them. You don’t see me running around looking for a new husband to take care of me. I married my ex-husband because I loved him. BTW, the gardener gave me his number to meet him out after, but I was a good girl and went home.

It seems like Heather has decided to become the new meddler in the group. This should prove to be interesting. While I am very grateful that she was willing to help me with my toaster oven shoot and the box mockup, I would appreciate it if she stopped getting involved in my business affairs. We mutually agreed to that after that last experience! Heather then went on to try to tell Bethenny how to handle Ramona when Bethenny has known Ramona for so much longer than Heather! This reminded me of when Heather tried to get in between Luann and Ramona during Season 4. She also got in between Carole’s argument with Aviva. In the preview we see that Heather can’t stop herself from getting into the other girl’s business, and then she tries to tell Bethenny to apologize to Kristen! We have yet to see Heather fight one of my fights! I hope that Heather gets the hint and lays off telling the rest of us what to do.

I thought that the whole brunching situation was ridiculous, even though I adore going to 75 Main and seeing my friend Zach Erdem. I don’t understand why we all couldn’t have just had brunch together. I think if everyone was just a little more relaxed, we would all have a better time, and we wouldn’t fight about these silly things. Life is too short to worry about who’s HOSTING the brunch! As long as we are getting Bloody Marys, everyone should be happy! Heather makes the best Bloody Marys! Why for Gawd's sake are we not following her to brunch?!

I am so glad that the girls and I got to have a fun night out at Beautique like it used to be! There was no drama, no fighting, just girls having a good time and not judging each other. I agree with Bethenny that it was odd that Luann didn’t tell her that Kelly was coming, but I’m glad that they were able to move on and not let one bad moment ruin everyone’s night. Maybe this was Lu trying to patch them up? We have seen Lu and Ramona do a 360. Lu and Bethenny did a 360. Ramona was having a good time and seemed like she was adjusting well to being single! I know that Ramona is going to be OK, especially if she has the support of all of her single, fabulous girlfriends, and there are many. I still find it strange that Ramona got upset with me saying she was divorcing when she says she is single over and over. Could she be pretending to be happy single? Trying to prove something? I still remember that psychic telling her Mario was cheating. It was so upsetting, I started crying for Ramona.

I am so glad that I met Dominik, and I had a lot of fun with him, but I am definitely not looking to be in a relationship with a younger man right now. I had a young boyfriend last year! At this time in my life, I am looking for a man who is more established and can be a long-term partner--and closer to my age. Especially now that I have ducks lined up, and I’m seeing the trees through the forest. I have not been this happy in some time.

But one fun night with a younger man never hurt anyone. Tune in to see if this is a one-nighter or not! The women are saying a lot of nasty things about me, but no one is trying to say that Sonja Morgan doesn’t know how to have a good time! No matter what happens, I am always the straw the stirs the drink. Lu and Heather drag me around like an old suitcase, so you know they are not worried about me at all. They are just too darn encouraging for that to be true. I guess I need to give my girlfriends more attention once I am over the hurdle of my lawsuit, so they feel secure in our friendship. We have seen LuAnn duke it out with Ramona over my time spent between them. Now we see Ramona freaking on Bethenny over her time with me. I guess I’ll just be the fire hydrant!
