There is another woman in my husband's life: my daughter, Avery. The answer was so obvious to me!!! Avery is now a beautiful young woman of 16 years. The bond that Mario and Avery have together as father and daughter is one that I have never seen before. I had a terrible relationship with my father, and from the time Avery was 2 years old, I made sure she and Mario spent time alone together to bond. It's so important that happens, as all future male relationships will be based upon the success of her relationship with her father Mario. I achieved my goal and am so proud of them both. I never knew such deep love ever existed, as I never had it at my home growing up.
People and friends are always amazed to see how much Mario loves me and how much I love him. The secret is trust, communication, and keeping the romance alive. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that Mario and I could love each other more deeply today than we did 20 years ago. I am truly blessed with my family and close friends, and I thank God every day.
Sonja is a good friend, but sadly she was projecting what happened to her onto what the fortune teller was saying to me. Her marriage ended because of another woman -- and it wasn't her daughter. Sonja to this day can't believe her marriage is over and has yet to recover from this loss.
I think you really should back up and take a good look at yourselfl. There is an elephant in the room and you don't see it. Do you enjoy making a fool of yourself every show. I really think you better put your wine glass down and get some help.
Ramona, I think all women who watched tonight's episode were watching what Mario's reponse to the question, is there another woman in his life. It was very sincere. It was nice to see how playful and sexy you and Mario are. You are right there is something...in the way you two look at each other. In an earlier episode, Alex had commented that friends would say to her that they wanted to find their Alex or their Simon. Ramona, I want to find my own Mario. From what I see, you do have a really big heart to true friends.
I have watched several seasons of the housewives and your drinking has become more and more obvious and you have become more and more obnoxious. You have been drunk texting and drunk screaming for at least the last two seasons. Get help. If you are not an alcoholic, you certainly seem to be. All of your friends are expected to have Pinot Grigio for you? Ridiculous. Pecking order and you are at the top? Seriously if your friends are such good friends, I really think they should be doing an intervention if you really drink as much as you appear to on the show.
As far as I am concerned Jill said to Ramona that she could not come on that beautiful Island!!!! but after crazy Kellys's phone call to Jill from the Island she suddenly had to show up?......without calling first, I mean who does that, she was standing there very unfriendly and of course surpriced that everybody looked relaxed and had a good time without her, that was the problem.....and she was asked to leave because they did not wanted more problems, Crazy-Kelly had left already.......yes she was unwanted......who is Jill and Louann ..these 2 women are completely with their own zip-code, they are 2 jokes....
A "true friend" is NOT someone that just agrees with you and tells you what you want to hear. A true friend is someone that is honest with you, so you might want to actually listen.
I love you and Jill and all of you for that matter and yes you too disagree and fight but it was obvious you have true feelings for Jill by your emotional breakdown of crying and what seemed to be physical pain when you stayed home from the group to rest because the make up didnt go as planned - i love that you both let it go keep it that way people like you two to be friends never let it get like Bethanny and write her out of your life because you obviously care and that would be awful - love everything about you - fortune teller blah blah if she can tell fortunes why couldnt she pick some lottery numbers and not have to work as a fortune teller! your husband is so obviously in love with you despite bravo trying to play a clip to appear otherwise - shame on bravo - do not waste another minute defending your marriage.
I love you Ramona but I think you were a major drama queen tonight! No one is perfect and you should make an apology when you are hurtful. That doesn't make you weak, it only makes you a better/stronger person. Best wishes to you and your family.
Ramona, I am watching the show tonight with Pinot Grigio in hand. It IS divine. Gosh, I love my Ramona! --MariaIC
Ramona- You should not even have gone to that crazy Psychic. She knows nothing. I was disappointed you went. I know you are smarter than that. Plus, you are a women of faith and this showed a wierd side of the show. I didnt like it. I do wish you the best. Stay true to yourself. Many blessings.
Ramona!!! Love you and your Turtle Time!! Could you tell me where you got your sexy, black bathing suit? LOVE IT!!
Jill is right, you couldn't be on this show if you weren't two-faced. It's literally your job to talk about the other women behind their backs. YOU do it all the time in your intererviews so get over it. You should have ramifications for behaving like a crazy person. YOu are loud, rude and annoying. I wouldn't invite you anywhere. However, Jill is dead wrong for blaming you for the Bethenny thing. She proves over and over that she can't take responsibilty for anything, yet she goes around talking about how "she owns" who she is.
I'm sorry the talk with Jill ended so badly. But what I really want to say about this episode is - I really really liked the way you and Alex came outside to talk to Cindy after she left that dinner in the tent, when everyone was talking over each other. I liked how you said that you realize that you guys are a tough group. I think you are a "tough group" (but I like you as a group - when you're having fun!).
I just thought it was very nice of you and Alex to try and smooth things over a bit.
Ramona, I like you for all the wrong reasons. You put drama into the show, but honestly I am very embarrassed for you. If you wanted to heal your relationship with Jill, you would need to also listen to her side. As soon as she spoke, you roared over her. I would have left the room much sooner than she did - because you refused to yield to her. Were did the sweet Ramona go? Put things in perspective, and stop asking for your stinking Pinot when you walk in the room. Learn to be more gracious.
So nice to meet you this evening at your "wine signing" event in Clinton, NJ! Never expected to see you in this part of the world! Was amazed at how young and lovely you looked. Thanks for signing all 6 bottles for me. Now...I have to go buy more Ramona Pinot Grigio to drink so I can save the signed bottles.
Ramona, Ramona, Ramona,
1) You were ABSOLUTELY right the way you handled Jill's crashing your party on the island. 2) It was YOU who tried to get Bethenny and Jill back together, but it was Jill and her faithful sidekick who put the kabosh on that -- so it is IN NO WAY YOUR FAULT that she didn't make up with Bethenny (not that Bethenny would still have her). 3) Jill is NOT your friend. She talks about you behind your back every chance she gets. 4) Do not ever trust her, and move on. She has shown you who she is time and time again -- BELIEVE IT!
Love you, Ramona
Ramona, you have REALLY matured and classed up this season. It's comenadable! Jill wants a scapegoat and shes decided you are it-but you didnt give in to her screaming or childish antics during your "conversation". Good for you.
I don't care what anyone says, I love that your a strong independent woman, who makes her own money. I think a big problem with some of the others is that they actually are a bit jealous of that(Jill & the countass). I'm sorry, did I write ass lol.
All the best Ramona
Although I don't feel you handled your convo with Jill in the best way, you were right on about her harboring feelings about her friendship with Bethenny. When Jill said, "You should've helped me make up with Bethenny." Umm...is Jill forgetting that you tried to do that once and Jill flipped out adn that Luann dragged her out of your apt? I would find it hard to be Jill's friend when she expects everyone else to keep her friendships entact. She projected all her negativity about Bethenny on you and it was completely uncalled for.
That being said, you didn't really seem to let her get too many words in. I understand she kept derailing, but perhaps you should've just let her rant, then mabye she would've realized that nothing she said made sense.
Anyway, you're an amazing woman! Don't let Luann, Kelly, Cindy, or Jill bring you down. As far as I'm concerned, they spend the majority of their time talking about you and Sonja. What a bunch of classless women!
Romana, I would be proud to have an awesome friend like you. Stay srong and don't let anyone get you down, remember your one tough cookie !!!
After previewing much tv programming for the purpose of determining value...I wonder if you 'Real Housewives', from any city, township or county, realize how juvenile your behavior is most of the time. It's like watching a bunch of 5th grade girls interacting.
Ramona, You are right in all your assessments of Jill. You did apologize last season and also at the reunion. Jill loves the drama and Jill loves Jill being the focus. It's so funny when she left your room she's crying she has to call Bobby. Really Jill, are you so immature that you have to call your husband so that he can worry about you while you're away. Who does that? Sharing with your partner is one thing but the constant running to cry to Bobby has gotten very old. Jill broke her friendship with Bethenny and if she should blame anyone it's her dear friend the Contess! Stay strong Ramona, your fans love you!
You are all losers for blaming Ramona for Jill's crap. Ramona did try to get Bethenney & Jill to reconcilate at her HOME. REMEMBER???? It was Luann &Jill who prevented that. Ramona doesn't need to make sure a reconcilation happened on the island when Jill showed up. Bethenney tried multiple times, but Jill harbored resentment and pride. She admitted that on the reunion show. So she took her sweet ass time and NOW she is still feeling the pain. AND Ramona did apologize to Jill....I don't know how many times already. Keep up with the show!!!
Ramona...You were right to point out that Bethany lived down he street from Jill and Jill could have made attempts at reconciliation many times before "scary island" and after. She was so obsessed last season with how Bethany hurt her and she just seemed to steam in her anger each episode blowing everything way out of proportion. You did try to bring Jill and Bethany together at your home, and "friend" LuAnn stepped in and thwarted the attempt. This season she appears to be obsessing about you and building her anger with each episode. No doubt Jill was hurt that you didn't let her stay on the island, but Jill should NOT have used your "retaking your vows" party to mend her relationship with Bethany. That was way out of line considering everyone had been in turmoil because of Kelly. She said she wasn't coming for you, but for Bethany. On the other hand, Ramona, you don't have any filters and oftentimes you say very hurtful things to your friends at moments when you shouldn't. You call it being honest, and a lot of people would call it being rude. You need to work on being a friend and not a critic.
Ramona, Avery was who came to mind instantly when the psychic (?) said "another woman". I could not believe what erupted in that room. Geez what a bunch of drama clucking hens.
I completely agree with you about Sonya in this scenario and you were very gentle with her. She is not recovered yet and who can fault her...well except to say that she needs to move closer to healing, it has probably been long enough.
Jill. Poor Jill. How long did it take her to blame her bad behavior with Bethenny on you? She forgets that you invited Bethenny and she to your house to do exactly what she was screeching that you did not do. She is so unaccountable in her life. I said it before, SHE is responsible for the outcome with Bethenny. NOW, she is doing the same thing with you. She gathers wind in her sails from the "yes-women" (poor dumb Luann and poor dumb Kelly) in her life and there has always got to be a Bethenny. You're it this season. She so enjoys being mean; that is the crux of the entire matter. At the end of the season she will be sobbing like she did on the finale last season that she wishes you and she could be friends again. Sickening.
I was so sad to see you cry over this. Get up off the bed and face the fact that it is Jill who is not a friend, NOT YOU, and don't let her make you doubt that!
Ramona, Jill said she was DONE with Bethenny....and look how great she is doing. Now she is DONE with you. All I can say is, good for you. You will have nothing but greatness now that the toxic Jill is out of your life.
Love you Ramona! Do yourself a favor. Acknowledge the hurt that Jill felt when she arrived at the Island and let her go. Nothing good is going to come out of it!! YOU are the better person.
Love you Ramona. Keep being you. I totally understand you much as I can say for others. Jill needs to be put in her place and exposed. She always tries to brush off her wrong and then rudely accepts she did it. She is a meany who pretends to be a victim when her tactics turn against her.
Ramona, Neither you or Jill REALLY listen to eachother that oftern, however, if you watch this episode, Jill admitted to saying what she said and she also listened to you for a LONG time. You never gave her a chance to say what she had to say. You need to really evaluate the way you behaved on this one. Jill was listening and admitting to her mistakes.
Ramona, I know you and Jill have always had your "ups and downs," since the beginning of the show. However, since last season it seems clear that Jill harbors serious resentment towards you over HER failed reconciliation with Bethenny. I think that resentment well exceeds any caddiness you guys have shared over the years. It bothered me when she said "she was worried about your drinking"...that your wine venture was a mask for alcoholism (implied by her diction). If she was really worried she would have said something to you off camera, NOT to girls that don't want to go on trips with you on camera. Jill is a very jealous woman and she probably always has been and always will be. I am not convinced her "new" attitude is genuine in the least. Her malicious behavior was called out by Bethenny and the only way she thought she could recover her image was to announce she was a new person. Just be more weary of her. You can't teach an old dog new tricks.
A fan from the oc
Ramona, it was totally unfair of Jill to blame you for the end of her friendship with Bethenny! You were the only one besides Alex who tried to encourage her to make up at all.... if she wants to blame someone besides herself it really should be LuAnn who did everything she could to block the make up in your apartment. I don't know if it's the editing, but in viewing last season, you never even told Jill to leave the island, she could just tell that NO ONE wanted her there and decided to leave on her own. Of course, you didn't try to stop her, nor should you have as she should have not shown up without calling first when she had so many problems at the time with the other women there.
Ramess! Watch the show again and you will learn the following: 1) Jill DID apologize and own it 2) Jill wanted an apology for kicking her off the island (not the Bethenny thing) 3) Jill DID give you an opportunity to speak 4) You need help!
Ramona, I agree with your comment on Jill having a set of rules for herself and a set of rules for everyone else. I also commend you for staying so calm during your confrontation! It's really hard to stay calm when someone else is screaming in your face! I do have to say that I feel Jill was so angry because she just needed you to acknowledge the pain she had felt about losing Bethenny.
I agree that it wasn't your fault that their relationship deteriorated; the fault is Jill's and she clearly isn't over it. However, I think she saw the trip as a last resort to mend her relationship and getting thrown out ruined her last chance. All you would have to say was that you were sorry NOT for Jill ruining her and Bethenny's friendship, but to say that if you could redo the trip, you'd give her and Bethenny a chance to talk before throwing her out right away. That's all she really wanted to hear, and I think that could have really helped to patch things up.
P.S. I don't believe in psychics at all; I believe in Jesus. You are so blessed to have Mario! He very clearly adores you.
Your ability to stay calm and accurately assess each situation is really shining through! I am so impressed at how you handled the fortune teller's odd reading, Sonja's emotional moment, and Jill's self-centered fit. If that is the Pinot effect then pass me a bottle! Stay strong Ramona - you are teaching us all how to stand up with dignity against the mean girls in life.
Ramona The truth is you do not only "put your foot in your mouth" because you are unfiltered... Sometimes you say mean things b/c you are vengeful and feel you have been slighted by the other person... We saw that with Luann at the Cancer bennefit when you made the dig about her husband in fron of her daughter, we saw it with Bethany, and we see it time and time again with Jill... That is fine, but you really should own that sometimes you try to hurt people on purpose b/c your feelings were hurt and often times it is after some time has passed since the initial slight you felt... It comes off as mean b/c the other person may not have intended to hurt your feelings, did not know your feelings were hurt, and in turn you attack them in a moment of otherwise calm.
I can not think of a single mean thing you have done to Jill. She just got caught bigtime talking behind your back and is embarrassed (I'm sure this is just de ja vue for Bethenny). Jill is not anyone's friend really. I like you. You are honest and upfront and the only thing I have seen you do this season is try to get along with everyone despite the fact that they are all attacking you unfairly. Don't even try with them; they are small and petty. I am so surprised at how immature and silly Luann acts sometimes - I kind of expected more from her.
Hello, I watched the episode of the fortune teller and I must tell you I was surprised because the first thing I thought I heard the fortune teller say was "another child" not "another woman". I am from Paris originally and my first language is French. I remember specifically hearing "une autre enfant" which means another child (feminine). I even told my friend who was watching it with me, as they showed the preview of what was about to happen after the commercial, what it said. Then I saw the subtitles and immediately thought- wait, what?! I did not think much of it, no offense to any housewives but I am actually a French speaker. The woman did have a strong Moroccan accent so I assumed I may have gotten it wrong. Now that I see your comment about Avery, it makes sense. And frankly, I genuinely believe you are right.
Ramona you shined through this episode! I was getting tired of watching you being everyone's 'train wreck'. You held your own with Jill and consoled Sonja when she needed it most. Jill and Luann are not the class acts they think they are. I'll take your 'real' any day!
Ramona, I doubt if you get this they never post my comments but I wanted to say that you held your own. Jill need to understand what happened between her and Bethenny is just that and If she really wanted to work things out between the two of you she would have tried to. I don't know what some of the other people who commented on this subject was watching but she did not hear a word you were saying. It seemed as if she came to tell you about her and Bethenny. You do put your foot in your mouth but at the same time you are accountable for your actions. Jill on the other hand just don't get it and Luann is soooo far up your you know what that she can't see the what's in front of her. I am team MONA all the way!
Jill did own it and apoligize for you not taking it as a joke she just wouldn't admit that it was mean since she said it as a joke, and she's mad at you for not helping you make up with Bethany. I think every body does have two faces, one for real life and one for fighting, sorta like the dark and light side of everyone.
Actually, Jill was calm from the start and came in with good intentions to talk so when you were talking she was listening for a good while. Then when she was trying to have YOU hear her out after she heard you out, you wouldn't let her, which is why it erupted to that huge argument. You say Jill doesn't listen when she was this time, but yet you don't like to listen either, especially if you don't like what you hear. It's great you are honest and open but it's also important to be open to other people's feelings and opinions even if you disagree.
Romona I love you!! My friends and I follow the same "Honesty Code of Conduct" in our relationships. You are an absolute inspiration to young women everywhere. I cant believe Jill had the audacity to imply that you played a role in the dissolution of she and Betheneys friendship- again. She actually believes that if you had not asked her to leave, she and Betheney couldve made up. Jill had multiple oppotunites to makeup with Betheney, but she refused. Jill needs to take accountability for her own actions, she is too old to continue this kind of behavior. Jill completely ignored the real issues at hand. Not once did Jill accept responsibilty for being caught "red-handed" talking about you at Laurens wedding. Instead of her accepting responsibility for her actions and apologizing, she decides to make herself out to be the victim. You carried yourself with class and dignity during this altercation Romona. Stay grounded and you blessings will continue.
I don't think some of these women watch the same show that I watch. You did say you were sorry that you kicked Jill out numerous times. But it always comes down to the fact that she walked into a room full of people she had pissed off though out the season. Like she says about you she left dead bodies everywhere in that room and expected a warm greeting after she knew what you had been going through with Kelly. What kind of friend doesn't call you to let you know shes coming? You tired getting her with Bethanny. Your damn if you do and damn if you don't. How can you win with her? Jill does have two diff. sets of rules. One for her and one for everyone else. You and her need to learn how to filter what you say. You are both the same except she drinks diet coke and you your pinot. I don't think your being hard on Jill I think your both a like and need to go off for a week to a spa and work things out without the Countess. God Bless you and your family and have a great summer :)
I agree, you are not the reason why Bethanny and Jill are no longer friends. You tried to help them out and get them together to talk but Jill wasn't having any of that. On the other hand, you have a hard time listening to other peoples viewpoints. You wouldn't let Jill speak after she sat there and listened to you. To have a meaningful conversation, you get to speak but the other person must be allowed to speak as well. And I guess you have no intention of being friends with Jill again since you are constantly sending little digs and jabs her way regarding her Hamptons house and her rented Ferrari. Why bring these things up? That's so high schoolish.
