Before I get started, let me thank everyone who takes the time to post comments on my blog. Keep them coming.
A big part of being on this show is the relationships we have with each other and how we deal with conflict when it arises. I think that Kelly made the right decision to have lunch with Ramona to discuss their differences and bringing along Sonja was also a good choice. Sonja does a great impression of Ramona and her role-playing definitely prepared Kelly for her lunch with Ramona.
I think that Kelly and Ramona's lunch went really well. Ramona impressed me with her sincere apology for the immature text message to Kelly and for how she treated Kelly on the trip last year. I was surprised how well Kelly articulated her feelings to Ramona and how she stayed "on message" about how she felt she was treated. I'm pretty sure they can move forward in a positive way with Ramona understanding that she needs to be more sensitive to Kelly's feelings.
There is not a "pecking order" amongst the RHONY ladies but some of us know each other better and have been on the show longer so we naturally are better friends. Cindy needs to get to know everyone better to understand how we interact with each other and how we work out our differences. Sonja has known Ramona for many years and has a high opinion of her long-time friend, so that may be what she was getting at when she said that Ramona was at the top.
