Cindy reminisces about her Sweet 16 and her ill-fated sweatshirt.

on Jun 24, 20110

Wow! This episode brought me back to the days of my Sweet 16. I remember having my party at the hottest and hippest club on Long Island. EVERY one of my friends had huge blowouts. It's always fun back then to act like a grownup and get dressed up!

LuAnn did an amazing job planning Victoria's party and it was so much fun! I was able to meet her darling mother, and hang out with Jacques and LuAnn's son. And. . .who knows. . .maybe MY family can grow with an exceptional man too ;)

SOMEONE CALL THE POLICE! THE PINOT HAS NOT MADE IT TO THE SWEET 16 -- AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! I guess karma came around (for at least a "scare") when Ramona's 99 cases didn't show up during the walk-through of her Avery's Sweet 16. Even SHE couldn't get her Pinot Grigio at the right place at the right time! I wonder if she went around town complaining about herself. . .hmmmm?

(Red faced) Yes, I worked out prior to my second workout with Alex and my sweatshirt didn't smell fresh. I grabbed the sweatshirt after not wearing it for a year. Of course, the owner (and my dear friend) of Drive 495, Don, started making stink-faces (pun intended) and joked about how terrible it was. Needless to say, that sweatshirt has been tossed out the window by Don, even though that was one of my favorites!

I cannot read the other comments. I tried to but they seem so mean. Please try not to be used by other cast members who want to form a bully pack. Of course there is no hierarchy and of course Ramona is not technically more important than other people. But she is a nice person and Sonja is, too. Those mean girls who are obsessed with bashing Ramona are a waste of your time. It is fine if they do not like her. But to be single-mindedly focused on her is just weird. Please try to rise above it.

I don't think you fit well in the show. That's not an insult or a compliment. But you seem to be very childish and your feelings are hurt too easily. Basically, Coming in after Bethanny is hard to do. She's the only housewife who real women connect with. You're just not interesting. Sorry. Hopefully the ratings will show that you're as dull to the show as Beverly Hills and Miami are to the housewives franchise.

The jury is still out for me as to whether or not you belong on this show. Seven women on a cast, is way too many for an hour long show. Furthermore, your blogs are not blogs (I cannot describe them), your are very insecure, you are not funny, you never smile, you are very immature, and you talk behind the backs of women that you haven't even gotten to know.

Ramona had 30 guests coming to Avery's party ~ it was no secret. If it were me, I would make sure the liquor was there on time for the ADULTS. Nothing worse than a bunch of parents listening to teen music without a cocktail or a glass of wine.

Cindy, it's nice to see someone on the show that acts their age, doesn't think that they are grander than everyone else , that you aren't after every man that comes around, that you are intelligent and sensible and last of all that you don't look like you have to prove yourself to anyone. Please don't let these women change you. I like that you stand up for yourself without looking like a screaming idiot or a pompous jerk!

Love Love Love you, you are so no nonsense, practical, to the point a pure New Yorker but are you now shaking you head and saying what the heck was I thinking about being on TV?

Sonja she really didn't much of a leg to stand on when we all found out about her bankruptcy which is sad, but, there you are all stable, providing for yourself and your family, being a productive member of society . Sonja could only WISH she had your life. Ramoner, yeah lets watch what happens with her, her life is not all that rosy, she is too busy trying to be Bethenny and the only person able to control her is Avery her sweet 16 yr old daughter!! Whats that telling you

My sweet 16 was at Halloween in costumes, [I am a Halloween baby], and we were having a seance in the basement, and my sister and her friends came and scared the poop out of us

cindy, every week it becomes clearer and clearer that you are way too sane and normal for this show. if you'd like to be on next season you will have to do something grand like turn ramona's pinot into a spritzer and watch her reaction, dress as twins in a mumu with simon (*what* was he wearing at jill's party??), or maybe chew with your mouth open while having lunch with luanne. just some thoughts. sonja got air time by not wearing panties so don't do that as that's her gig ;-0

You're a funny one aren't you? I'm so glad you don't allow Ramona to push you around. Stand your ground girl.

Cindy,

We get you don't like Ramona. The petty high school digs aren't really necessary and really aren't that funny either.

I think you are great. What Sonja did to you: cutting you out of all the Morocco pictures was so petty. You just laugh all the way to the bank because being petty is all Sonja Morgan will ever have. Being petty keeps people from being productive. You rock Cindy. Remember to laugh all the way to the bank.

You are such a breath of fresh air and sanity. Please don't change. You are the most well grounded and logical member of this season's cast.

Cindy, you seem like a really cool and fun person. Hopefully, you will not take things too seriously and not take sides so quickly. Stay true to yourself.
