Ramona Singer

Ramona's not taking Jill and LuAnn's criticism lying down, as she tells her side of the charity debacle.

on May 19, 20110

Where do I begin???

To say LuAnn and Jill are full of negative energy towards me is an understatement! While Avery was watching the episode, before she even got to the last part of the charity luncheon, she asked, "Mom, why are they all being so mean to you? I don't understand." I never lie to my daughter, myself, or others, so, I had to answer by saying, "I don't know. I really don't know why some of these ladies are acting this way." Do you?

Now, let's talk about my lunch with LuAnn. It was such a waste of time. As always, without even knowing what happened, she is taking Jill's side. Why should I involve LuAnn? I don't want to talk behind Jill's back with LuAnn. That's not who I am. I didn't want to taint their relationship by bad mouthing Jill and talking about my situation with her. I also didn't want LuAnn taking sides. This is between Jill and I; no one else.

Moving along, let's discuss the charity lunch. When Jill saw the wine in my arms, she asked why did I brought it. I said "your assistant asked me to." She replied, "No, he did not," and I was flabbergasted. "Do I need to show you the email he sent me?" I replied and she just stormed away. Once again, Jill gets caught in a lie. I have finally realized that she is a pathological liar. She will just outright lie to make herself look good and make someone else look bad.

Between True Faith, Tru Renewal, HSN, and Ramona Pinot Grigio, I have four product lines that I could have donated for the silent auction! She never asked me to donate anything. It would have been my pleasure. Now that I think of it, I would need a whole table for my products and it was probably just too much "Ramona product" for Jill to handle. Do you know what I mean?

Beautiful post Rachel. I am thinking that my arnaddgughter Maryn is doing about the same and that thought is exciting to me. I wish I could see a picture of her, but I have enjoyed your little cricket's photos. What a treasure she is, so happy and bright. Love her little legs sticking up in the air in the top photo, but most of all I love her sweet smile. It cheers my heart! xxoo

Ramona you have turned into the mean girl this season. You seem to be drinking a lot and the more you drink the more hateful you get. Having money and a successful career does not give you the right to spew forth whatever pops into your brain. Show some elegance and sophistication when dealing with others. Take the high road and you will be just fine.

Hi, Ramona --

I think you sometimes say hurtful things, but I never think you mean to hurt anyone - it just comes out! I really like you on the show. I think you're funny, and I love what they show of your relationships with Mario and Avery. And your cute little dog! You have a beautiful family.

I'm kind of quiet in social situations, and I think you'd probably run right over me. But your heart's in the right place, and that's the most important thing!

Ramona keep being you! There will always be someone who doesn't like your honesty and fun loving attitude. I was hoping you didn't have a drinking problem because in this episode and past ones you have always been hollering out for pinot grigio.

Ramona,

I don't always agree with you, but I love your honesty. I also love the fact that during the show, you can talk about other things than just ripping the others apart. It's such a relief! I get so tired of the group of mean girls (Kelly, LuAnn,Cindy and Jill) constantly ripping you apart. It's pathological for Godsake! Anyway, keep on bringing the fun and good times to the show. :)

Love you ramona Yea sometimes you are a little to blunt!! may calm it down some. But I totally agree with some of the other bloggers. I think luanne put a big wedge between Bethenney and Jill... Jill didn't or doesn"t see it. And I think or fell it is now being done to you.. They don't want your bluntness... Good luck and best wishes I love your Hair...

You have it ALL! Handsome husband, beautiful and bright daughter, Manhattan apartment, Hamptons house, fab career. So why be a bully and control freak? If the pecking order of success is measured by you, WOW....I can not imagine how failure is measured in your inner circle!!? You are too tough. Honesty is one thing. Being a class A "B***H" is another. Count your many blessings. Share not only the name of your dermatologist and hairdresser, SHARE the power of friendship and PEACE (just find it, first)

Ramona keep up the great work, I can't stand Luann (Countless) or Jill the (Bully) and Kelly the (whacko) picking on you all the time. You would have thought that Jill learned her lesson last year for what she did for Bethany..obviously not. Luann needs to shut the heck up and worry about her own life and not the life of Jill. It's amazing the show is call the Real housewifes of NYC when there are only three of you that have husbands. don't you need a spouse to be a housewife??? Keep attacking back Ramona and put these children in their place

Ramona....What are your thoughts on Bethenney's well deserved successes this year.

The COVER of Forbes? WTG!

Hopefully, you and Alex will laugh all the way to the bank and on the cover of Forbes, too????

You go girl and drink your Ramona!

Ramona,

You and Alex are my favorites on the show, and here's why... I feel I can truly relate to you. I am just starting a business, I have two kids under 4 years old, I have a great relationship with my husband, and I tend to just speak freely and sometimes that offends people or I blurt things out at the wrong times. Also, when something is bothering me I can't let it die until it's resolved (i.e. your issue with Cindy's brother). I'm that way... I just need to get it all out and I need to feel like I've been heard. It leaves us not always winning popularity contests and but our intentions are good. I definitely feel like LuAnn speaks to you like you are beneath her (apparently Sonja hasn't taught her the pecking order of the group). She treats you like a little kid and you're not. You're just different from her, and that's great. Keep it real Ramona. You're a true inspiration for business women as well as housewives. I know I could learn a lot from you.

Ramona honey you just let Lu Ann and Jill pick on you...cause the last time they did this is was Bethany and look at how wonderful and successful her life had turned out. Maybe you will get your own show? So the heck with Jill and Lu Ann cause i dont think people could handle them in their own shows..lol. Just saying:) Love you and i enjoy me a Romotional kinda day.

Go get em Ramona! The mean girls are trying to make you look bad, but it isn't working. Jealousy is an ugly color for all those brunettes to be wearing!

Just keep being you Ramona, you are the main reason I watch the show. People may not always like what you say, but most of the time you are just saying what everyone else is thinking. LuAnn "darling" likes to preach manners to everyone but she is the one who needs a lesson on mannersthe most. Enough of the being offended if someone does not refer to her as "countess." How egotistical?! Stay true, live large, and enjoy your wine!

Ramona Dahling - I love when you call Luann Dahling over and over...it cracks me up. You know she can't stand being called that - so keep it up. I'd like to start by saying i'm glad you kept your hair the shorter length. You look really good with that hair style and length. Congrats on your "Ramona" Pinot. Luann ALWAYS takes Jill side - all last season with Bethenny Luan was Jill's bodyguard. It was gross to watch her defend Jill's every move as well as telling her what she should do and say. It's funny that Luann said that Jill is afraid to speak up to you. The one thing I can't stand that Jill says to you all the time is, "well, I thought we were friends, but now I know we're not". She sounds like she's in elementary school. No one thinks that you are an alcoholic - obviously Bravo is playing it up. I actually thought at the beginning of the season that Alex had a driniking problem. Take care, and stay the way you are Ramona....you're funny and we enjoy watching you on TV.

Ramona: You're a very funny lady, I love the positive energy you put out, however I believe you should work on your approach when giving your opinion or suggestion to someone. Yes, sometimes you do not use your filter, and at times it's not okay, words do hurt. If you work on your approach, you might find people will not be as upset with you. I'm just sayin....Peace out

I find it very funny that "the new girl", Cindy, excluded you, Alex and Sonja from her spa invitation and wonder how long it will take before she discovers that she's a lamb among wolves?

This season is so hard to watch....they do seem to be ganging up on you. For people that are suspose to be against bullying, they sure know what their doing. Stay strong, you a wonderful woman and a great role model.

I usually like a person that speaks their mind, but you take it to a whole different level. You do it to see how bad you can hurt a person. You need to get a filter on your brain so you think about what you are going to say before you say it. I sincerely hope you learn the meanings of class, friendship and most of all respect for other people.

Please be nice

Only watch RHONY because of you and Alex!

You go girl! ....Laugh at Jill, Kelly and Lou Lou all the way to the bank like Bethenny is!

Why does LuAnn always try to stir up trouble? She did the same thing last season. I gave her a pass then because I felt sorry for her because of her ex-husband's betrayal. But now she has her new Beau (who seems delightful) so why doesn't she lighten up and just try to be nicer. You're not really a Countess anymore, LuAnn. I honestly think she is jealous of you and your loyal husband, Mario. He is so supportive and always has your back and your daughter is a real gem. Jealousy is ugly. Keep on being yourself, Ramona. Like another poster said: you may have the last laugh just as Bethenny has!

GOOD CORE

RO, YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL CORE. Cindy is always starting trouble and she seems very jealous of you. LuAnn thinks she's the Head Master and has to mind everyone's business. She needs to just mind her own business and leave you alone. What is it? Because you're beautiful and mega successful and have a great family? Good luck.

Ramona,

One of your best qualties is that you are a genuine person -- you love, you laugh, you get upset, you react; in short, you are real. What Jill, LuAnn, Kelly and Cindy fail to comprehend is that you are 100% your own person. Even when your words come across a little harsh, your intent is never to hurt someone's feelings.

Although my hair is jet black, I am a supporter of the Blondes.

When you have a loving family and can count a few dear friends as loyal in your life, you are truly blessed.

By being yourself you shine, and that's the Ramona we know and love.

Stay strong!

You are obviously a very smart and successful woman - a wonderful role model for your daughter. I like that you speak your mind, but you tend to be very abrasive. You say so many hurtful things to "your friends," With your renewal last year, I would love to see you care how you affect the others with your words.

Ramona, I am not a drinker but I think that I would partake if part of this group. Keep your head up as there are those of us who like you and agree that some of what is going on is really not nice and certainly not mannerly. One person in particular is a class-A backstabber.

Keep true to yourself and good luck in all your endeavors.

Don't let them get you down! Honesty wins out in the end. ALWAYS.

Everyone here is team BLOND all the way. xoxox from sunny California.

Don't like me...then don't talk to me.

Romana:

I have to agree with you. It makes no sense why they have suddenly gone on the defensive with you. What I found the most amusing was the lunch with Kelly, and how you handled yourself so well. They expected you to go all Ramotional, but you certainly proved them wrong. Besides Alex you are the most level headed person on the show.
