Wow. I can’t believe the season is over, and we are already at the reunion. Doing the reunion has always been stressful for me, and it is not something I look forward to doing -- especially this year when I saw so much mean girl talking behind my back; so many things said in such a negative manner on each episode. It gets hard to handle, even for someone strong like myself. Thank goodness I know who I am. I am a great mother, wife, a successful multi-business owner with a great group of friends off camera, which includes Sonja and Alex.
To say I was I was embarrassed by everyone's behavior on the reunion, including my own, would be an understatement. Who would ever think that we are a group of educated, sophisticated, polished, New York women? This was not evident in what I watched. The reunion was mostly negative energy. I, myself, made a few comments that I am not proud of. It's impossible though to have discussions with some of these women who only know how to exaggerate grossly, or worse, downright lie. At times, I felt it was beneath me to engage with them.
You could tell by my answers and body language that this was the last place I wanted to be. When someone lies or insults you with condescending digs and malicious intent, how are you supposed to react? I guess I could turn the cheek, which I did at times, by not wanting to even discuss it. But, at other times, my mouth would get the best of me, and I do apologize for that. I can't take back what I said.
One thing is, I never lie, and I own up to my mistakes.
YOUR MY FAV WE LOVE U .. GREAT SHOW. I WOULD LOVE TO HVE A DRINK WITH U.. GOOD LUCK TO U FOR THE NEXT SEASON. XXX
some people think that Ramona got Jill off the show...oh come-on...as if Ramona has that much pull...the producer is the one that makes all the discisions, about who goes and who stays, stop blaming Ramona.....people blame enough stuff on her.....Ramona we love you and can t wait for the next season....
i m soooo sorry that the show let Alex go; you, Sonya and Alex seem to have so much fun together...team blond...the scene in the bathroom on the boat, when you thought you were pregnant, was so funny and that Luanne was so upset about it, means that she probably was jealous because she wasn t included in it. it was only you and Sonya and the secret.....hope the show changes their minds and bring her back......
I cannot wait for the new NY housewives. I too have gone through some of your issues(on letting go of a long term friendship) Toxic relationships at any level are bad. I hope this season will be about maintaining good friendships with women not backstabbing ones
Ramona! I think you are funny and cool! I admire how you are owning up to your mistakes. I am so excited to see this next season! I'm sad that Alex was taken off. I don't think that was fair. Well, you make the show unique Lol:) cant wait for season 5!
Ramona the most shocking thing i have ever seen in the series was you having to get someone to unpack for you in Morocco. Honestly i think even Prince Harry packs and unpacks for himself. Who do you think you are. Time to come back down to earth, "Your pino grico blah blah blah" so tired of hearing about it. And attacking Luann on marriage and kids, another shocking thing really dispicale Luann is right how do you sleep at night. Shocking.
love watching you , you make the show worth while...........you are a lot of fun. DON'T EVER CHANGE............
Ramona, Bravo have left you on for the next series .... this surely has to be for entertainment purposes, they're not laughing with you sweetie, they're laughing at you! Quelle embarrassment! I would say the same for Sonja - she's getting too old to strut her stuff. You two are like the comedy series from the U.K. Absolutely Fabulous and before you think that is a compliment, watch it first! I'm glad Kelly and Jill have been let go, they are 'real' people with souls and far too nice to be doing reality t.v. Your star performance has to have been the fashion show - you really were laugh out loud funny!
I think Bravo has made a big mistake getting rid of Jill. They should have got rid of Ramona who has a big mouth, has no manners or class and behaves very badly in public. I am glad that the upstart Alex has been sacked and thankfully we will not have to watch her horrible husband with his bad taste clothes and his uncouth social behaviour. Although I shall miss not seeing Jill when Season 5 is broadcast in England, I look forward to seeing LuAnn and hopefully an engagement to Jacques who, together with Bobby Zarin, are the only gentlemen on the show but alas, we will not see the latter.
Ramona is the best, she tells it how it is and yea is a little crazy but thats what makes her sooooo funny. I think she is the most acomplished and doesnt apologise for how she is - and why should she. She is a great role model. Thanks god she will return for the next season.xxx
Sorry gang, I'm new to this blog on RHWONY, so forgive me if this sound's ignorant or way behind in 'matter.' I have watched all seasons of NY, but have never checked out this blog or read gossip about the show. I assure you though, I have not missed an episode. I just (I know, I know) heard that Jill is not coming back. Why? Good lord, all of the RHW franchises have drama and fights to put it mildly. Is it because of Ramona? How could she possibly have the "pull" to get her off? I for one do not want to watch it without Jill, and if I DO watch and Ramona is the reason for Jill's abscense, I certainly will not be a Ramona fan, to say the least. What happened?? (besides what we saw all seaon incl:the reunion?) Someone help a Mom who doesn't keep up...!
Loved the show, unfortunately didn't catch the first 2 episodes. My comment to all of you is that none of you seem to talk to each other but talk at each other, and the arguments are all very petty and juvenile. Nobody seems to be able to say sorry and leave it at that, and don't bring up the subject again. But hey that makes good tv, yes??
LOVE LOVE LOVE THE SHOW.... Ramona glad that your still in the show you are great but watch your back , don,t like luanne and i hope kelly has gone something was wrong with that girl. be real and be strong.
So glad Ramona will continue in the next series. To are definately the most real, fun and hardworking mother and wife out of all housewives show. By the way, I love your jewellery and your energy.
Ramona, you are my favorite housewive! You are so real and extremely accomplished. You speak your mind and you are honest. You are the best don't change!! Your fabbulousssssss!
A great gift to have is when we can take responsibility of our own actions at the same time comes great responsibility with that controlling what we say, owning up to when one is wrong is mature and shows that person is aware of her character flaws and what she needs to do to put forth effort to change in that area. This means putting forth effort to hold your tongue back from speaking in a non productive way about others, it is good to have your own opinion but at the same time there is a way to speak to people you dislike or do not agree with without looking like a back biter for starters never talk about anyone behind there backs . remember do not take responsibility for someone elses actions, do not give people reason to speak ill against you and if they do that is there issue not yours, even if everyone around you are doing wrong,you do right period. And even then when a person does right they still get talked about in the end all that matters is that your right with God. You know Jesus even suffered for doing right. Ramona have you ever thought about why you were really chosen to join the show? key word ~Chosen~It's not about how the world see's you.
BIG mistake, Bravo! Jill is the glue that held this show together and, without her, a lot of people wont watch. Sorry....Ramona wasn't, isn't, nor will ever be the star of this show. She's just nuts! I'm going to miss my RHONY! :(
BIG mistake Bravo!!! Jill was the best of the show, and the ONLY reason i watched. Ramona is a head-case and I will no longer be watching. Why dont you poll your viewers to see what THEY want before you make such a decision? ALL of my friends would've rather seen Ramona GO and Jill STAY. You've lost A LOT of Viewers with this one.
A suggestion to BRAVO.. It would be a good idea to have a LIKE or DISLIKE button next to people's posts.. that way they could either agree or disagree with what was just stated.
--Just a suggestion...
Ramona, I am glad you are coming back next season. Things should be better without Jill putting her nose in everyone's business. I look forward to seeing you and Sonya have fun. Love your HSN jewlery! Love, Ann
Congrats Ramona, Looking forward to another season. Have always enjoyed your part on the cast. Hang tough, you are a wonderful lady. The others were catty and mean spirited.
So glad you will be back!! Seriously, without the cast shake-up I would not have continued watching. I love watching you and Sonja together, and someone's got to make sure that the Countess comes down to earth every now and then. You're abrasive and need to censor yourself at times, but I respect that you work hard for what you have and did so on your own.
So glad you will be back. You are the best part of the show now that Bethany is no longer there. I wish Bravo will reconsider and bring back Alex too.
BRAVO know's when they have a jem! So glad they kept you and Sonja. I'm going to miss Alex, though. Best of luck on the new season! I can't wait to watch it now!
I am glad you will be back. Stay true to yourself otherwise you may end up not returning to RHoNY.
First of all Ramona did not accept Alex and Simon initially. As a matter of fact she was sooo rude to them both and their children, much worse than Jill. Ramona has always been against Jill from the first season when she deliberately did not invite her to her little gathering and invited LuAnn. I think Ramona had a big part in the Bethenny and Jill breakup. She is down right rude to people all the time, even when interviewing. She talks about LuAnn parenting skills and she has no room to talk. I saw her kissing another woman in the mouth in front of her daughter who was years younger. I am waiting to hear about her husbands mistress, because it will come out. When I saw her try to deliberately make Luann feel bad about her broken family, I knew then, she is gonna know how it feels first hand.
Ramona, I did not like you at first, but as the seasons have progressed, I have changed my mind.. You are now my favorite housewive.. You are so real.. and it is good to have you on the show so that you can put the other girls in their place.. You go Ramona!
Ramona Dahhhling... We miss you! You are really the only housewife, that has a successful career, a child still living at home and a husband (ie a real housewife)! You may put your foot in your mouth on occassion, but at least you own up to your faults and say things directly to people, and not behind their backs!
Please come back or I may end up getting a little Ramotional! :)
Ramona you are the most real of all of them. I love your honesty. Luann is sneaky,Kelly unstable,Jill OMG,Alex harmless, Sonja me me me,Cindy confused by all of the above. Keep em real my girl.
Ramona, thanks for staying true to yourself and being honest enought to admit your faults, but not laying down and letting Luann, Jill, and Kelly drive back and forth over you. I started off loving Jill, but through the years, I have seen her turn on her "best" friends, like Bethany. Be unforgiving until it shows how mean she really is, and FINALLY be willing to forgive, but it is too late. She has done that with you too. She just hasn't been willing to forgive, because she has the bully brunettes with her. Unwillingness to forgive is like holding a hot coal in your hand and expecting it to burn the person you hate. You don't hold hate in your heart. You get it out and then it's over. Much healthier!
You ROCK Ramona! Sonja, Alex and you are the only ones I watch. The other's should pack up their pails and shovels and go back to school and learn how to play nice in the sand box! Boy did Bethenny leave at the right time! I can't wait to see her in LA and have her own talk show. I hope life treats you as well. I think Jill's time has been up on this show. She hasn't changed and will never will except on the outside. Piss, bitching and her moaning gets real old! She's never happy unless someone is giving her something. UGH
Ramona, You are great..stay friends with Sonja&Alex...they are real&classy!Good luck with all your businesses&thanks for keeping it real:)
I get that you are honest and "say it like it is" and I appreciate that, but I think you need to work on being a little bit more diplomatic. You can be really cruel because you have no filter and it seems like you don't think at all before you speak. To me that is the main difference between you and Jill. She can be blunt, but not so harsh. I admit I am not a fan of her back talking on camera and I told her that, but at least even then she isn't out right cruel. Nasty yes, but cruel no. From season one you have said things that were hurtful to every single one of the housewives.
I believe you mean well, but I also believe that people would be more willing to hear your point if you could try to be more diplomatic in the things you say. You get more flies with honey.....
Where is your current blog Ramona? This one is from part one of the reunion.
What do you have to say for yourself?
Ramona I just love you, your energy, your personality, I would love to meet you. Please don't let anything the catty ones of the bunch say ,bring you down. Your gorgeous, your successful, and you have a life style we would love to have. Stay yourself, you don't have to prove yourself or defend your self to those who are jealous and narrow minded. Take care
Ramona, you inspire me. 54, great shape, successful business women, great mother and wife. You Go Girl. And go team Blonde!!!!
Ramona, you are the funniest and smartest woman of all housewifes. You understand jokes and you can also be serious. I like you, you are my favorite!!!
Ramona, keep doing what you are doing girl! You are a class act whether the Countess thinks so or not! You own everything you say and do. I think they need to keep you and Sonja and recast the rest of the crew! Bethenny had the right idea getting out when she did and getting away from it all!
