In this week's episode, you see that you can't hide your true self behind a pretty mask.
With photography, you have more chances to get the right shot, so I'd have to say that Ramona is a better photograph model than runway model. I admire Ramon's confidence, and I thought she looked great.
But Ramona lacks self-control, and she doesn't filter what she says. I don't think she's completely out-of-control, but she is becoming increasingly emotional and angry -- especially when she's had a couple glasses of pinot grigio.
I was planning to go to Sonja's masquerade ball as Scarlett O'Hara from Gone with the Wind -- until my cold got the better of me. Wild horses couldn't have dragged me out of bed, not even for one of Sonja's fabulous parties.
but it did seem like you were grilling Ramona or maybe you were just trying to wow her with your knowledge. I would have been more impressed if you were asking all this stuff in front of the cameras for the viewer to get a little wine knowledge. I liked you better when you weren't being as catty as you are being these days.
You really need to stay out of other people's business. Last year you made sure that Jill and Bethenny didn't make up. This year you will cost Jill her friendship with Ramona. Not nice LuAnn, not nice at all.
LuAnn, Why are you so unhappy? I got it last year when you obviously were so miserable over the breakup of your marriage that you felt the need to insert yourself between Jill and Bethenny. Bethenny is gone, no longer competition, so now you have set your sights on Ramona. Are you that insecure when it comes to your "friendship" with Jill? I had hoped now that you have Jaques in your life, you would be kinder and not so catty and such a mean girl. Watch your actions, listen to your words ... do you think those are a good representation of a mature woman, a mother? Would you reward your daughter if she acted that way toward a "friend"? Act your age and MIND YOUR OWN BEES WAX. Grow up. Have some class. If those words mean nothing to you then how about these? Do unto others ...
I think you are jealous of Ramona and her success. She has done nothing to you and yet you put her down, over and over. I'm guessing if Bethenny were still on the show you'd be bashing her too. You, like Jill, seek out the need to "get them on your side." Funny how you supported her AND gave her advice at the charity walk and then turn around and put Ramona down. Your badgering her during her party about how the wine is made, the grapes used, is it an estate wine... Get the pretension stick out of your a** Luann, you are not all that
I love LuAnn, she is so beautiful and has so much class! Kelly is also a favorite of mine as she seems genuine and she is a sweet woman. This is the only Real Housewives show I watch, but Ramona is REALLY getting on my nerves. Sometimes we need to choose our battles, but she wants to always tell people what to do, and is too confrontational, just let some things roll off your back, Ramona, you will be happier.
You really should start getting informations from BOTH sides before making assumptions and taking sides.. This is twice now this season you have taken sides before hearing both ends...
Hey Ms. LuAnn......I am really confused about you this season. I am attempting to understand why you only listen to one side of a story then make an assessment of what you hear. You must listen to both side then make a opinion based on BOTH sides of the stories. Remember you are about class and style; please remember this when you listen to a person's stories.
Cat needs to be a regular on this show just to keep you in line. Dahling you are not class but, a witch stirring the pot.
I think you should've found out the details about what went on between Jill and Ramona before taking sides or judging Ramona. As you can see the bride approached Ramona about how Jill harassed her on her wedding day. Ramona wanted to talk to Jill about it and she couldn't even get it out. The truth came out after all when Jill saw the bride. Why are you getting involve? It's non of your business? Next your agenda of grilling Ramona about her wine. That was so mean spirited. You just wanted to embarrassed her and show her how much you know about wine. That was so terrible. You know what you did and why you did that.just to show off that you know so much about wine? C'Mon! So sad...
You did not want to discuss the finer points of wine with Ramona. You wanted to make her look like she doesn't know anything about wine. She is a business woman who handles the business aspect of her wine. A vineyard handles the pressing. Let it go.
As for the wedding, when do you hold Jill responsible? Jill behaved badly and jealously and owes Jennifer and Ramona both an apology. Jennifer can tell anyone she chooses. But there would be nothing to tell if Jill had behaved respectfully. And hiding behind other women and throwing them under the bus as if she was no part of that wedding conversation was just shameful. Nice to support your friend, but let's be real about things.
LuAnn....this is between ramona and jill..why must you always interfear...i agree that ramona does not always pick the right time or place but it is still between them...STAY OUT OF IT!!
I really like the costume you selected for Sonja's Party and was disappointed when you couldn't attend. You were missed by the guests and Bravo's viewers. You did watch the show. Did you notice Ramona didn't wear a costume? A black cocktail dress and a mask showed she didn't put any effort into the spirit of the party. All she had to do was borrow some of her daughter's clothes. Remember the first season? IMO, Sonja didn't "forget" to wear the bottom half of her costume. lol
I'm glad to know Ramona's Wine tastes good. Her top priority appears to be having HER NAME on the bottle. For someone claiming to be a "terrific business woman." she doesn't show any of the necessary due diligence required. IMO, she isn't an Entrepreneur. She is a wealthy married woman with access to her husband's bank account which finances her "hobbies." Wine. Skin Care. Jewelry. What's next?
As always you are a class act. I wish some of the others realized that you don't aquire class, you are born with it. I agree with you about Jennifer, she seems to be getting into the mix side by side with Ramona. She said what she did to Ramona to start another fight, that much was obvious. Stay the way you are LUANN, I love watching you on the show.
Luann, you are gorgeous and have a great sense of style. You would make a garbage bag look elegant! I have a question for you: Why are you always trying to imply something about Ramona's drinking? It seems like all of you (except Jill) do quite a bit of drinking. It seems mean-spirited and unkind to continually make drinking comments about Ramona.
LuAnn, If your going to point a finger at people without filters, make sure you point one at Jill. Jill talks behind everyones back and when she gets caught she cries to you and Bobby. You defend her like she's one of your children. Let her fight her on battles!
You are of course gracious as always, while being a good friend to Jill. Ramona is out of control! I love watching to see what you will be wearing.
Luann I love that your on the show! I love all your manners. It is nice to read your blog and your not taking digs at anyone. I commend you that on even if a friend takes a dig at you one daythe next day you can give her advice that is truly a nice way to handle things. You have such class and I love your style.
I feel like you were ganging up on Ramona and badgering her about the wine to a fault. Everybody is attacking Ramona but she is just reacting to things that were told to her - isn't she allowed to react without being called crazy. I mean really - maybe Kelly could explain her bullying concept again because I think it applies in this case. Everyone knows Ramona is "ramotional" but come on - quit picking on her.
If I were in your position I would support me friend blindly as well. However, now that you know the the other side of the story I think you should apolgize for speaking poorly of Ramona. It's one thing to support a friend, it's another to throw the opposing person under the bus.
I was so loving your sweet and funny and happy change this season....until last night's episode! Now the snarky stuff is happening again and it is too bad.
Good blog and well said. I enjoy your influence on the ladies, even though they aren't always open to the discussion.
Very nice blog but I did feel bad for Ramona when you were grilling her about her wine. She didn't know the answers to your questions and instead of taking the hint and being gracious and kind you kept on grilling her with questions. We know you know about the wine so please let it go. It's not the first time you've done it to her about the wine. You did it at her "Mary Kay" party as you put it. You even talked down to her for saying the location where the grapes are grown incorrectly. Ramona got upset because you were on camera and I think she was embrassed.
Just remember you can be knowledgable and not a show off which is why Cat from DC housewives went off on you. Much love to you and your family and I hope you have a great summer :)
You are a beautiful woman and a really good friend to Jill. I love the way that you show how much heart you have when it is really needed.
I'm reading everyone's comments and they are unfair. Is it okay for Alex and Simon to involve themselves. Somebody had to have Jill's back.
Actually, you just wanted to prove that Ramona really doesn't know how her wine is being produced...
Luanne, It's seems that your life mission this season is to make Ramona look stupid. First, you shamed her about her pronunciation of the word "Veneto" and more recently you grilled her about her wine with the clear intention of making her look ignorant. And you clearly enjoy upsetting her. What's wrong with you?
I would have liked to see you in a Scarlett O'Hara costume :)
And I totally agree with you about talking bad about a hostess and/or her party at the party. That is just plain rude.
LuAnn I understand that you are always trying to be a good friend and I admire that about you. You are extremely loyal to your friends. I understand that it is hard to deal with people like Ramona and Bethenny because they just say what's on their mind, but not everyone has to have a filter. You should learn to respect that some people just choose to speak their mind and prefer to say it in a person's face versus saying it behind someone's back (which is what you and Jill like to do). Another thing, you questioned Ramona about her wine, as if you were the wine expert. You didn't appreciate Ramona questioning how much time you spend with your kids and whether or not you were a "weekend mother" so why would you continue to question her about her wine? It was almost like you felt like you knew wine better and wanted to educate her. Remember, Ramona is different than people you are used to and you should respect the person she is. Instead of judging her, try to understand where Ramona is coming from. You carry yourself as a mature, loving woman and I hope you never lose that. I wish you much success in your future and I hope you and Jacque (sorry if I spelled his name wrong) have a happy life together.
LuAnn -- good for you in keeping your comments very neutral while still defending your position on Ramona. You obviously have learned from the past what can happen when you get too involved.
Luann, Your BFF, Jill was the one criticizing Sonja's party while she was at the party. Why didn't you call her out on it in your blog like you did to Ramona instead of glossing over it? Ramona's wine launch party was not the time to interrogate her about the process of her wine making. She had other guests to talk to and this was a time to enjoy herself. I don't think it was good manners to monopolize her time.
My dearest Countess, I have learned so much from you. All good things of course! I appreciate the fact that you always try to reason with everyone and look at things from an outside perspective. I've enjoyed reading your book and have kept my manners in "check". I no longer chew gum and carry mints! Thank you for being a great NY tv personality and showing us the true meaning of class.
LuAnn you are an all around classy lady and I absolutely LOVE you. Keep being your classy self and many blessings to you and Jaque!
I have to admit I wasn't a huge fan of yours the past couple seasons. But, this season you have changed my mind. I find you to be very pleasant to watch on the show. You have manners and you are extremely polite. You are a classy woman. I am thinking that its your new relationship that has brought out the true you.
LuAnn from the first season COME BACK!
You are VERY Classy, you have great Manners, and the Grace of a Princess! It shows in the way you speak, carry yourself, and behave proper in public! But I miss the fun LuAnn, that went out with her younger friends and let her hair down! Just because you wrote a book on Class and manner's does not mean you need to critic everyone's behavior! Are the producers asking you to do this? That would make more sense to me.
In ending I will say again, as I have before. You were one of my favorite HW's. But now your like the judging Countess.
Lot of Love, Amy
