Heather Thomson

Heather apologizes for her poop joke, discusses dinner, and disagrees with Ramona's "insecure" comment.

London Calling!

The girls arrive at our penthouse suite, and I was really sorry that I couldn't be there in person to greet them properly. But I’ve been here for a few days working the international sales meetings for Yummie Tummie, which is what brought us to London in the first place so, the hotel staff was put on high alert, and I made sure the ladies had a nice spread and some fun spectator hats to welcome them.

Back in New York at Guiseppe Zanotti (where the shoes are delicious), I noticed that Ramona and I can finally we agree on something. When she commented that Aviva's leg really is like a work of art, she is 100 percent right. It truly is a piece of sculpture, and Aviva is so elegant in all of her dealings with it -- living her life doing it all! She is nothing short of 360 degrees of beautiful.

. . .Speaking of beautiful, Luann looked awesome shopping in London and rocking a pair of Yummie jeans! Although no one probably noticed them because everyone was focused on Carole's braless tatas! LOL!

I first lay eyes on Carole, Sonja, and Lu at my sales dinner, a.k.a. the Egg Drop Saloon. I guess raising the little ones has made pooping a casual conversation for me! Oy! Other than sharing that these bathrooms take the porta potty to a whole new level of futuristic luxury, I have already said enough here! Carole refers to them as "the Orgasmatrons". . .is that better? Either way there is nothing like this in New York, and these toilets certainly provided a topic of conversation!

Stay true to yourself girl.  I applaud your personality and how you treat people.  I do not believe that you exclude Ramona but you can only take her in very small doses.  Certain professional atmospheres are not a very appropriate place for Ramona.  Her tactless personality and lack of respect is just appalling and a little shameful to be around with.

Here's the problem, Heather: you are normal, and Ramona is bonkers. You will never "connect" or "communicate," because you speak the language of the sane, and Ramona speaks Orkan.

 

In normal society, you have different levels of friends (acquaintances, friends of friends, friends from the health club who don't know your other friends, etc.) and the groups don't always overlap. I can't see why a grown woman in her 50s (?) doesn't get this. You were well within the boundaries of politeness, not to invite Ramona to an intimate "girls' weekend."

 

If she doesn't like you, why would she even want to go???? The mind boggles.

I really like you.  Forget Ramona, she needs to be booted off the show.  She makes me nervous.

You don't understand old school take down and Ramona is going to give you a lesson and I will enjoy watching.  First rule in war do not underestimate your opponent. And my dear you started with Ramona.

I love your pageant smile!! I love how you are happy in your own skin! I love how your success pisses Ramona off!! She had to demand a pic of herself in a convention center for a speech she gave to who ever happened to pic up a coupon bag delivered to their yard. You owned your business in London!! Did you have to strong arm anyone in London to put your pic on a sign? Did you have the table you expected? It looks like you had the  things you deserved and earned:) You didn't  have to bitch someone out to get it!!!!

Heather-

I've really enjoyed you on the show. Stay true to yourself and don't give in to Ramona's antics. I get exhausted watching her. The word Ritalin comes to mind every time she speaks. You're saying what many fans would like to say. She's a car crash everyone wants to watch and gawk at, but they wouldn't want to be involved in it. Her craziness might have been entertaining in the past, but it's gotten old...fast.

 

And while I like Carol, it's evident she doesn't get sales and motivating your staff. I've been to dozens of conventions and team building meetings where people were asked to stand and say something about the product or service being showcased. I find it hard that it's the "craziest thing" she's ever seen. I thought your London trip was great and it was very nice of you to include the others. You had every right not to invite Ramona. Who knows what she would have done or said around your people. True to form, it would have been a back-handed compliment or she would have tried to make the trip about her and her stinkin' wine.

 

Aviva needs to stop with the "speaking out of school" between you and Ramona. She's dangerously close to being called two-faced. I hope that's not the case, but it appears she tries to play to both you and Crazy Eyes.

 

Keep up the good work. Looking forward to seeing more of you on the show.

Cant wait till the day we don't have to hear Holla, Yummy Tummy, and Bring it on.  Sad that in order to stay relevant she has to start something with Ramona.  Good for Ramona for standing her ground.  TEAM RAMONA! (and I don't even like Ramona)

Heather, you are the first real woman to be on the show. You re cool, calm, collected, and a real pro, in every way. Ramona is a bull in a china shop. No class, manners, or self control. It is a breath of fresh air for a real woman to come in and take charge.

Sorry, Heather, you are a mean girl.  You don't invite an ENTIRE group and exclude 1 person.  It is hurtful and low-class.  Ramona is out of control sometimes but she did nothing to you so terrible as to warrant that treatment.  P.S.  Grown, "professional" women don't say "Holla!!!"

As a big fan since the very first show I can tell you that Heather is not a welcome housewife! She is way to busy trying to act like the "Cool Girl" .... which I feel she is NOT! Yes Heather, you talk to much and mostly about that company you are pushing down everyone's throat every week. Even your blog's have the word "YUMMIE" in just about every other sentence! Yes we all get it ... you have a slimline wear company called "Yummie"!!! How could we forget! Enough already! Give it a rest, after all this is not one of the commercials that are shown throughout the whole show, every 5 minutes .... it's the Housewives show we all tune in to watch, not an update on your bussiness ventures!

Hi Heather, I loved you! I think Ramona was jealous of you, however, everyone was cutting people off in that conversation, they just call people out to make them selves better. NOT WORKING! we know you two Ramona, is always threatened by successful woman period. so stay classy, ignore her, let her fawn over Carole, only because she is a princess, and accomplished.. U had every right ti invite who ever you want to ur gatherings, she did it a few years back, and never told Jill she was NOT invited,, so ur one up girl.. And YOU TOLD HER! A fan

I love you Heather and think you are a breath of fresh air. I find you to be very intelligent and the fact that you don't always have a glass in your hand shows that your really a business woman who knows that's not the look of a true business woman unlike that dingbat Ramona. I didn't like the way Ramona spoke about poor Sonja either, she's PURE mean.

Team Heather y'all! She's unpretentious and isn't afraid to say NO to Ramona! If I were one of the housewives, it would be my mission to say no to her as much as possible to teach her how to accept it with grace and MOVE FORWARD! She says it's just her being her, but she crosses the line far too often to use that excuse anymore. She needs to quit drinking so much so she can actually remember being insensitive and be able to genuinely apologize.

I LOVE Heather!!! She's so refreshing!! She actually likes other women & doesn't feel the need to be in constant competition with them.

Why don't the Producers of THIS show make it a rule you are only allowed to mention "Yummy Mummy" once a show! Seriously, I sometimes feel like I am watching one giant Yummy Mummy infomercial...

Heather! YOu are so great to watch - love your honesty and I think it's great that you didn't give in to the pressure to invite Ramona. I was ready to quit RHONY and I'm glad I didn't, you are making it a lot of fun to watch!  Thanks for keeping it real! =)

I cringe everytime I see Ramona talk to you. I just wait for some stupid comment to come out of her mouth.

However, I think you are fantastic and come across as someone who is nice to everyone :) You seem like a lot of fun

God save the queen you are so royally boring; every time you open your mouth all I hear is blah blah blah.  At least my fingers are getting good exercise changing the channel every time you are in the scene.  You almost make Kelly Bensimon likeable.

Omg! Obviously you crave demeaning nastiness & mockery; thus, the London trip was boring to you.

I agree there should be less hawking of product placement, like Ramona's Pinot Grigio line.

OMG if I have to hear any more about "crummie" yummie tummy dummy BS I am going to explode  - RHONY is becoming an infomercial for this stuff.  That trip to LOndon was not exciting to watch, it was like paint drying.   I'd rather watch reruns of Morraco or Scary Island than this season.

Heather, I think you are AWESOME!!! I am so glad you came on the show, you have become my favorite housewife of all of them!!! Don't let the negitive comments get to you. You did the right thing by not inviting Ramona. She is obnoxious, self-ish, and menopasal.

What you have is clash of personalities with Ramona, you are genuine. Ramona is harsh and you are more subtle....

You absolulety did the right thing by not inviting Ramona to London.  She is so competitive with you.  Her claim to fame has always been that she was the only business woman on the show.  She would have definately sabotaged your dinner meeting just to embarass you.

No one should be criticizing Carol..cough cough Luann...because she is not comfortable speaking in front of a bunch of strangers.  Carol is not an employee of the company.  She was asked to come as a guest.  She should not have been expected to "perform" to make the boss happy.

Finally a Real House Wife who one can aspire to be! You are so warm and genuine, AND a REAL business woman. At least you don't consume all your profits! Holla!

Heather, I like you.  You are very authentic, you don't try to "SUCK" up. But one thing is you seem very eager to think the worst of Ramona.  Did you watch the show?  It was Aviva who suggested you may be jealous of Ramona.  Ramona downplayed it and actually disagreed.  So don't go blaming Ramona for calling you "jealous". 

Bella-Stuie

You are adorable! You are confident and assertive and accomplished. I LOVE it. I agree that you can be cordial with Ramona without being fake. Everyone who calls you mean for not inviting Ramona is admitting they would put themselves in an uncomfortable situation and pursue a fake relationship. That is a gross way to live people. Take notes from Heather and learn to keep it real folks!

Heather,  You are such an asset to the show this year..  I think you are very sincere person , I would rather have you as a friend anytime then Ramona.  Ramona is in love with herself and there is no room for anyone else.  Stay true to your feelings.

 I have to say I agree with the things you said. I don't find Heather "fake" in any way. Actually I find it somewhat refreshing to see someone just be real! I think she is genuine and an asset to the show. Ramona just seems to get more repulsive with every episode. Rude and obnoxious!

@abuh2009 I hate the Holla intro too. Heather, stop trying to be so cool. You're not 20!

 @abuh2009 I do not think that she excludes Ramona to stay relevant.  Ramona's personality is a bit much.  I love when a person is real with you. But Ramona is not real....because she cannot admit when she is wrong.  She is so narcissistic and way obsessed of her ensuring everyone "she can do it all".  Please....when someone's life is perfect or their business is successful...it speaks for itself. It is unnecessary to gloat and brag about it.

 @abuh2009 Is THAT what she's saying in her intro - "Holla"?  What does that even mean?  This is one annoying woman. Bravo - LOSE HER.

 @abuh2009 I love the way Heather talks (I goof like that with my kids and friends...they think its cute/fun..so to each their own).  And I am sooooo glad someone finally isn't letting Ramona and her bad behavior have a pass.  So tired and sick of seeing that every season.

I think that Ramona would have ruined the trip. Maybe it's time she hears the truth about her behavior from someone.

 OMG, it is obvious you like hostility & demeaning nastiness; therefore you were not inspired by the civility of the London trip!

P.S. Are you also sick of all the mention of Ramona's "Pinot product"?

 @Chark Did you read her blog? She didn't say Ramona called her jealous, she said R called her insecure (which, R did). 

 

And it's ridiculous.  How can Ramona not understand that some people just don't mesh? I would so not get along with Ramona either, but it wouldn't make me insecure just because I don't like someone.
