Ramona Singer

Ramona dicusses her fight with Jill, Sonja's party, and the backstabbing amongst the ladies.

on May 12, 20110

I really must give models a lot of credit. It is really hard to look natural, relaxed, and smile when the photographer asks you. That is why I wanted Sonja there. She always puts the biggest smile on my face and makes me so happy whenever she's around!

I now have four product lines that I am very proud of: True Faith, HSN, Tru Renewal, and, last but not least, Ramona Pinot Grigio. Magazines and press are always asking for photos of me with my products and not just the products alone. So, I chose Andrew Coppa to photograph me. He not only does many celebrities, but he also does great products shots. I was really happy the way it all came out. Please see all the photos on my website.

Now, onto the backstabbing and nastiness of some of the women -- and it's only going to get worse. My stomach is turning now as I recall it all. What is with Cindy saying, "Her core is not good"? Is she becoming like Jill and talking behind my back now too? What's with all of them? Can't they just say it to your face? I am the one who introduced Cindy to everyone, so I would say that makes my core pretty good. What surprised me more is how Jill jumped in and added all of her negative comments about me to Cindy. What is up with that? Maybe Cindy will figure it out eventually, but until that happens I am staying away from her.

I, for one, really enjoy creating new businesses. Some women like to lunch or shop. . .I love business! I was so excited to launch my Ramona Pinot Grigio at Serafina. The owners are Italian and know great wine! They are carrying my pinot in all of their restaurants including Geisha and Cognac in NYC.

You know what I thought, Ramona? I thought, "Why would the bride tell her that?" She didn't have to tell you about Jill saying that - all it did was hurt your feelings. It would have hurt anyone's feelings. I thought the bride herself was in the wrong.

Ramona i love you! You are definately quite a CHARACTER! I think this season what you are feeling and saying is very on point. I think your message is very true, but your delivery needs some work. I think your a very passionate person and have lots to say, but when you are on the spot you get soooo worked up, it is as though you are trying to say everything at once. My advice, take a breather before you say anything. I understand it can get frustruating when some of the ladies go on a rampage once you tell them that they are not as fabulouse as they might think. But dont loose you marbles over it. Best of luck cuz it seems as though last year Bethenny was the person to go after (she was my favorite) and this year its you :(

Viewers do pay attention to details and can spot a "conspiracy" and it's obivious that Luann smiles in your face but gets you back eventually.. backstabber and creator of drama, she feeds the others. Although, Jill does the same lol. WHY .. introduce Cindy? OMG.. she's not even note worthy! Love you though!!

Ramona - you, Alex and Sonja are the only ones being real on this show! Love it! I appreciate women with strong opinions who aren't afraid to say it to your face and admit when they're wrong. You 3 are the best!

Ramona, I absolutely LOVE you! You're classy, a good business woman, and speak your mind. Jill claims to have changed, but she's still the same old Jill. Last year, Bethanny...this year you. I know you'll be able to hold your own against the other wives. Just hang in there.

I agree that with Ramona on quite a bit of what she said. Problem is, you have to own up to when you commit the same acts; such as admitting on camera that she purposely did not tell Jill that Alex and Simon were coming to the wedding, much less that they would be coming with her, all the time knowing there would be a fuss.

Ramona.. you are who you are, you might not always be tactful, but you are honest and actually very endearing. forget Jill, Luann, Cindy, kelly..they are all b.s.ers, backstabbers, not even gonna go into it, because the list is soooo long. You are doing great, don't allow other people to change the way you feel about yourself..

Cheers

Ramona, your straight forward honesty is great!!! I think it is so hard to deal with the Jill saying she has changed, but with every show she is still talking behind people's back. If she can not deal with honesty, then she should not be on a reality show or just tell people what she thinks and feels to their face. I am so tired of watching Kelly ( I remember her saying she doesn't talk about people behind their back like 4th graders) LuAnn, (she is so two faced and self-rightous) she talks behind the backs of all the women, and now Cindy, again does not understand the reality show concept. If she didn't want you to talk to her brother at her B-day party, it should not have been on the show. I really hope you and Alex don't change ..... I watch the show to see honest confrontation between adult women, not women acting like children. Good luck with your business ventures. I am lookings forward to buying your Pino

Ramona, You are a breath of fresh air, when most of the others are faking it for the camaras, you always let your true feelings show. It might not always be pretty but at least it is real.

You are one of the best, and I hope you come out of this season with your sense of humor, joie de vivre, and sanity. My favorite part of this week's episode? Watching your two-faced friend Cindy getting new fangs.

Just Love you Ramona! You are real, and anyone who can't take reality (Kelly) needs a shrink! I also love that you were so good to Bethenny. In my opinion, she was the heart and sole of RHWONY. Without her, the show is missing something big. Don't think I will watch it anymore, but love you Ramona, you have a great man and daughter. Wish you all the best!

Ramona, you are an awesome lady! YOU have it ALL, Lady! The loving husband and daughter to be so proud of. Your business skills are so driven that others cannot comprehend you is the problem. That is why you are a success. I notice that different organizations seem to request you to speak. Ramona, Luann, Kelly and Cindy are jealous! Luann more than any. To consider herself classy without getting the facts. I ached so badly for you when Jennifer told you. I am so glad Jennifer did. People need to see what you go through. I figured it all the long. They don't deserve to be in your presence. Keep on going on with your BAD self Girl!

RAMONA, I HAVE ALWAYS GOTTEN A KICK OUT OF YOU IN THE PAST. BUT, I AGREE YOU'RE STRUGGLING WITH SOMETHING THIS YEAR-FOR SURE! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S BECAUSE YOUR DAUGHTER IS GROWING UP...THAT'S JUST THE NORMAL COURSE OF HAVING CHILDREN. SOMEONE USED THE WORD, "COMBATIVE" AND THAT'S REALLY HOW YOU DO COME OFF THIS YR. IT''S JUST AWFUL THIS RELATIONSHIP WITH JILL. CAN'T IT BE WORKED OUT????? WOULD BE SAD TO SEE ANOTHER FRIENDSHIP COME TO AN END ON A HOUSEWIVES SHOW!

Ramona,

I think you are GREAT! You are honest, true to your feelings and outspoken. When someone is talking to you they never have to worry about what will be said behind their backs, you tell it like it is! I used to love Jill. I do not like her anymore and I don't like LuAnn and her stirring the pot. You stick with Alex and Sonja, they are your friends. The others, crazy Kelly, backstabber LuAnn, off the wall Cynthia are not your friends. If you were'nt on this show, I would'nt watch it.

Personally I am sick of Jill and her croc of b.s. tears too! She has become a pathelogical liar and I am thinking she needs some therapy. I was also a bit upset that your friend, the bride, did not put Jill more in her place when she went to her. Jill lied once again. Hang in there Ramona. If I were in NYC, you would definitely be on my friends list!

Ramona-

The reason that I love you is that you can admit when you make an error. Yes, you have trouble hiding your emotions and often let them get the best of you, but you own it. You can apologize and be honest about what you were feeling and why you react. You were wonderfully gracious to Kelly and apologized, admitting you were upset and reacted badly. No one is perfect, and every person on the planet would certainly have some embarrassing or regrettable moments if followed by cameras. Your ability to admit when you're wrong is the reason I am a fan-it is easy to forgive those who want to be forgiven. I have a much harder time overlooking the nonsense of Jill, LuAnn, and Kelly, as they never admit they are in the wrong. They are always the victims, always in the right, and never sincere in their attempts to mend fences. I totally disagree with Cindy-I think your core is good-you are working on improving yourself, unlike others who try to deflect their poor behavior and act like victims.

Ramona, Stay true to yourself. Those other women, Jill, Luanne, Kelly and Cindy don't come from a good place. You have a wonderful life - live it and forget those who don't wish you well. They went after Bethenny and it made her stronger. Team Ramona all the way!!!

OMG, I have been watching and thinking the same thing about the others. Since Bethenny's not there, they have all turned on you... It seems to me that what Kelly thinks is what is going. You are still being yourself, since the first season. Why now, are Jill and LuAnn saying you are so bad.. Keep on being yourself!

Dear Ramona, You & Alex are my favorite housewives so I am coming from a place of love & caring. Jill is a charming socialite, who loves to be loved & listened to, & liked the best, over anyone else. The only experience I have in the situation that I seem to see between you & Jill is a situation I had with my sister. I thought I was my older sister's favorite sister. We seemed to be closer friends than she was with my younger sister. I am in my 40's, yet at about 32 years old, I realized I was involved in a few of my two sister's casual get togethers. When my older sister mentioned the events to me, she just assumed thats how it is, sometimes she is with me & sometimes she is with our other sister. I experienced for the first time in my life a bit of humble pie. It all of a sudden hit me that I wasn't my older sisters favorite. I was in shock, I just couldn't believe it! Then several months passed, I did not show my disdain for the situation at the time, & I finally sorted out reality, thinking, "how could I get the idea that I was the favorite & that of course she liked being with me way more that my other sister, she's never said as much. Yet in my teen years I was prideful, & thought I was so much cooler & funnier than my little sister to be around." Now, it seems funny to me that I had gone around in the world assuming I just had more going for me that my little sis. I also thought that between the two of us, if we ever were to go to college or live in neighborhoods together it would of been a problem, because everyone would like me better. What a brat I must of been around my little sister. Since that time I realized that my younger sister had developed many charming & gracious personality traits, & realized that of course my older sister had seen us all grow & she loves us both the same. Yet, at the time I thought I was the queen bee between us. Since I experienced this late into adulthood, I know for a fact that an adult can think they are way to mature be snobby, & be delutional about where they stand in the world. Even quite old gals, truly feel that they are gifted, & the most qualified people in the world to be followed & listened to, kind of still like high school leaders of a pack. Even if a snob manipulates & bad mouths others who are threatening her with her power over her followers, it is not reality. I feel that you are dealing with just this type of person. I hope you can just hold on until the reunion is over, & really try to separate yourself from mean & toxic people for the rest of your life. I love how successful you have been, I also love that you have been strong enough to be true to yourself & not a follower. I never bother with the people I hate, & I really try to keep drama out of my life. I wish you all the best in regards to this. Sincerely, Melinda

Ramona, You are wonderful, and it is ok to work through your feelings when dealing with such insecure, self-absorbed women (except Alex and Sonja whom I equally love). Kelly needs to take a very close look at both herself and her medications and quit projecting her own faults to you!

You are best! I hope that both you and Alex ignore the "bullies" and have as much fun as possible. The camera doesn't lie....we see what's happening. My hope for both you and Alex is that there's less drama and more goodtimes:) You are beautiful inside and out.

Ramona, You appear to be very good at heart and that dose come accross on the show. Sonja, Started like that last season How ever, Im noticing a very big change this season. as far as Jill is concern I would deffinetly cut her out of your life just like Betthenny did and notice how her luck has changed is'nt that telling you something. Jill is a very envios woman. Cindy OMG!! I know a snake when I see one I would'nt trust her as far as I can throw her watch out for her she strikes me as a cold hearted woman who likes to twist things around. and by the way she did not make any sense the day u guys met up in that restaurant, What is she on drugs? Luann Ah will see, Kelly very sweet girl How ever, extremely easily influence.But, she is a good person. Alex, Also like wonderful beautiful and intelegent love her. Will good luck and dont let your guards

Both you and Alex set Jill up at the wedding thinking it would be fun not to let her know that Alex was coming, Then set off the bat Alex came going after about the march and did she know she would be there. Seems you also did some things behind Jills back.

Ramona, Just wanted to say that LuAnn is NOT the "Ms. Perfect Etiquette" lady she tries to make herself out to be and it seems like she's always trying to make you look stupid. When discussing your wine, her goal was to make you look stupid by correcting your pronunciation and asking about the technical aspects. She tries to cover up what she's doing but everyone can clearly see that she just wants to make you look stupid! Next time she pulls that crap, you should say something to her.
