I couldn't believe Sonja was bringing up the photo shoot with Heather. I decided to leave the table as I no longer wanted to be part of it and was hoping to get on a new page with Heather. I was hoping to bridge the gap and settle the rift between us.
Le Ti was so much fun! As you all well know, I love dancing! Heather and I suddenly bonded on the dance floor. Once Heather, Carole, and I got on top of the tables to dance, it was sealed. Heather and I reached an unspoken understanding with each other.
How many times did LuAnn say Tomas looks like Johnny Depp? Was it just me or was she obsessing a bit over the way he looked? I really don't know why LuAnn would lie about having Tomas over to the home. And to say Italian people, not French?!
Tell us, Ramona, do you think you might have a drinking problem? Perhaps this is what you and Sonja bond over. I lost a dear friend to alcohol because she is only interested in hanging out with people who drink a lot. When we make reservations for dinner, she always reminds me that she and her husband always have two drinks before dinner. She too always brings her flask of vodka with her because she might be in a situation where only wine or beer is offered. Reminds me of you bringing your Pinot around. She like you is a functioning alcoholic. She is surrounded by enablers as you are. I wonder if you remember the horrible things you say to people? She never does. I wish you well, but I think you should give what I've said some thought.
Heather may not be perfect but no one is. You say she has a fake smile, yet it takes class to smie at someone who is always going after you. Heather comes off the most normal while you and Sonja do not. Would you want someone putting their finger in your face while yelling, or running off so you cannot even reply/defend yourself? Would you want someone evesdropping on your conversations? Consider the old saying, treat someone the way you would want to be treated. When you yell at someone, run away or evedrop, is that how you would want to be treated? Something to consider.
Ramona, You have a kind heart and know how to enjoy life with Sonja.... I give you a lot of credit for apologizing especially after being called white trash. You are right, Luann was smirking.....she most certainly caused that whole mess and loved every minute, she was trying to divert attention from her cheating. You work hard so just continue to love life and have fun with Sonja. By the way, it WAS a girls only trip and Aviva did change the dynamics by bringing her husband, she needs to get over it..... For someone who does not want to bring attention to her disability!!!!???????
I think you all should be ashamed of yourselves. I agree that it is true that you Ramona, are a successful business woman but whatever happened to class? I have had the same circle of frineds for 30+ years and none of us would ever speak to each other like the way you ladies do. The key to maintaining friendships is tolerance and acceptance. You are always calling each other out on issues and "clearing the air". Well, once hurtful words are spoken they can never be retracted. The way you ladies shout at each other and trade nasty banter is shameful. How can one human being speak to another in such a way? If someone is your friend, you accept them for who they are, good and bad. If you choose your friends based on their good hearts then you know that they are good people and if they do something accidently to slight you, then you forgive inside of yourself and move on and love them for the person they are and not the action.
Dear Pat, You are exactly the same kind of friend that I am. I, too, have known my good triends for many years and prefer to appreciate their finer qualities rather than focus on the few negatives that we all have. These NY Housewives would be better off to stop seeing and talking to each other because the poison surrounding their conversations is deadly. I do not see these people as "friends" but more likely, they are all enemies as they have no respect for each other and no boundaries either.
Pattidee62 I agree with you 100% Patti but I do have a question for you. You say that Ramona was or is a "successful' business woman so what business is it she is successful at? The reason I ask is that it just defy's logic that she could be successful running a business AND be on this show. I mean she is the only one buying her wine, she is always out and about and spending weeks here and there, and until this show no one had every heard of her. I think the ONLY success she has IS this show and really how much talent do you have to have to be the crazy drama mamma?
To blame LuAnn for your behavior is unreal to me. You need to be removed from the show and get some help lady, you are a total ridiculous joke! You get after other housewives when you think they talk behind your back and yet you take every opportunity to talk about each of them behind theirs...try walking the talk lady!
Love you and Sonja, so much fun together.... Impressed you said sorry to Aviva, not sure she deserved it. Glad to see you and Heather making things work, happy for you both....
You come across very phony and obnoxious to me! All of the girls say that you can never fight with more than one person at a time and it seems to pretty accurate to me! It was good to see Aviva put you in your place and also to see Lu call you out - after all, you are the first one to put other people on the spot to save yourself and get your point across - does "steam roll" ring a bell?? Also, the fact that you said that you felt silly when you were in the pool in Miami doing face yoga, uhmmm hellooo have you seen yourself on the show?? That was probably one of your more sane moments!
You never cease to disappoint. Once again you showed your true colors. If the spot light is not on you, you have to stir the pot to get the attention. Luann spoke he truth. You said those things and there is no denying it. Aren't you the one that claims you tell the truth? So why be mad at Luann when she did what you claim is the right way to be? no doubt you were the mean girl in high school. Unfortunately you never grew up. When you say that you are refraining from making snide and mean comments does not make you look any better. It just tells us this is the way you think. There is definitely something going on in your life that is making you very unhappy. Figure it out and your relationships with others will improve. Try and emulate Carol it would do you good.
I'm always a fan and like you and Heather getting along, I liked you most when you apologized and hugged Aviva. That girl REALLY lost it tonight but she did have a terrible trip and deserved love upon arrival.
I have really come to like you and respect your honesty. You handled the Aviva situation with class. I have learned that she makes everything about her. I simply can not understand why her husband would even want to stay with a house full of woman. It's very odd. I could go on, but I won't. You rock!
Ramona, I thing LuAnn was a jerk to get Aviva more mad at you. And by the way, were totally right about everything to do with her husband coming. Aviva was a total weirdo about the whole thing! Why was everyone supposed to kiss Reid's ass because he did HER a favor? Whatever! Turtle time!
It would not bother me if one girl came with her husband.......... that would be her ball and chain ......Not mine!!!!!!!!!!! I think I would still have a GREAT time especially on the islands!!!!!
You absolutely Crack me up!!!!! I love Aviva still!!!!!! but you are a HOOT. You would be the friend that I would totally identify with on girls trip...Soooooo much fun!!!!!!! ..... You were absolutely right about Luann....Dah????? She made Bethney the outsider a couple seasons ago. She stirs the shiot. Her comment to Aviva was totally stirring the shiot. I hope you and Aviva come to terms!!!!!!!
watching you and you and Sonja.... I wonder if Carole is jolted into thinking of the Kennedy cousin.... Eddie Beale and her mother... you and Sonja remind me so much of them!!! wonder if some day you will be living out of your Hampton home with vines growing all over and drinking the cases of Ramona wine that never sold and singing show tunes and having the Hampton's newspaper boys be your entertainment.... Think the movie was Grey Gardens... Ramona you should watch it!!... you are about 10 years away from there!!!
Ramona, the reason you are so great is because you stay true to yourself and who you are. Being in a group of so many girls it is inevitable that you will get along perfectly with everyone. In life if everyone where to like you that would mean you are doing somthing wrong because that would mean that you change your personality depending on who you are with and that is just not who you are. I praise you for being who you are and sticking to your guns.
In the other seasons I liked Ramona, but this season I think she is acting a little to much and not being real. Some of the things she says are to far out there.
It's no longer amusing to watch you throw a fit and walk away. Grow up and face the music when you confront someone rather than take your jabs and then walk away. How disrespectful of you and Sonja to be topless when someone was bringing a man into the mix.
Only you would put such a dramatic conflict with another housewife to rest by dancing on tables. Glad to see it going in a positive direction.
Ramona - why did you lie to Tomas and say you "saw" him in the house, when actually you only "heard" him in the house. That is not "playing cat and mouse", that is "lying to destroy someone elses relationship". Not nice.
HawaiiBlueBecause it is the only way she can start the drama she thrives on. She is pathetic.
Love ya Ramona, i understand the girl trip issue, I think people have had it before this trip and survived. It is not a reason to up and run, sometimes you just have to be in the moment and enjoy the beautiful place your in.
You gals did over react a little.
I have never missed a single episode of a Real Housewives franchise, ever. But, it has taken me days to watch a few of them because your behavior (and Alexis B., Vicki G., Nene, and Teresa G.'s) can just be so ugly, inconsistent and hateful (not rude, hateful). You seem to think you're "brutally honest" but your not, you're just wanting the shock value and it gets OLD fast. All of you women (mentioned above) have at some point in the show lost touch with reality and have bought your own hype. Sad. Sad for your family, sad for your friends and sad fro Bravo because it only cheapens you. It seems every city in the Franchise has its loose cannon (and I mean that in the ugliest way possible) and I guess your the N.Y. one. I pray every season you have not been renewed.
VIVA HEATHER! (she may not have the ratings value you do (i.e., she doesn't embarrass herself or others at the rate you do) but at least she's sane.)
I completely agree, this is my first season of watching the NY ladies, I tried before in past seasons and could never get through a full episode. I decided to try again this season because I read that Carole would be in the show and also the addition of Heather and Aviva. It seems to me that Ramona is doing whatever she can to stay relevant. Lets keep our fingers crossed that she and Sonja will not return next season. Watching the two of them literally makes me angry...
Oh, Ramona....you are trully entertaining every time. I laughed so hard at your "coma toast" comment.....priceless!!!!! I think you should change your name to Ramona "Zinger"!!!!!
I have met people like you several times in my life. You are surrounded by people that you think are your friends. But the fact of the matter is, because of your conceded obnoxious behavior, everyone talks about you behind your back. If you ever find your businesses failing and you are not on top any more, you will find yourself all alone. All of those friends you think you have will be gone. Or, when you find yourself at heaven’s door and realize you are on the same playing field as everyone you looked down at, you will hopefully for the first time feel shame. However right now you are so far past the point of return, there doesn’t seem to be any humble left in you. I pray you can learn to see some great in others rather than just yourself.
In the meantime, can you please retire from the show? You have exhausted everyone and have worn out your welcome. Thanks for reminding me of who I do not want to be and good riddance!
Really Ramona acting like a teenager does not become you. It isn't cute. You don't have be on stage all the time. Your scene stealing hyper antics really get old to watch. I have to say..I would never invite you on a trip..you're exhausting. You're a pretty woman and you'd be a lot more pleasant to watch if you tried to act your age. As far as you complaining about Russ coming..again..this wasn't about you..It was about Carole going on a trip to meet Russ and being kind enough to invite you ladies along.
Thankyou!......whew! I didn't say it but it had to be said.
In the great words of Carole, please don't be yourself.
I thought she complained about Reid coming, don't recall her ever saying anything about Russ??? Just saying...
Wetsenaid Ramona complained about Russ coming on last weeks episode..My comment was made then...Just saying....
I thought your introduction to Russ was very cute and formal and I'm happy that you were able to resolve things with Heather- I hope it sticks! But I gotta say, I do like it when you rile up the uptight girls! Especially LuAnn! Nothing's better than seeing a Countess squirm!
I adore you! The one complaint I have, you repeat yourself over and over and I believe that is why you are always blamed. Say it once then let others give their opinion and let the dust settle. Most often you are right but by repeating ypurself and getting loud, you always end up looking like the villan and the crazy person. I do believe that some of that is left over from being friends with that awful Jill Zarin who questioned and belittled every single thing you ever said.
Be yourself and let us all see YOU!
I very much enjoyed watching Lu squirm while you got to look down your nose at her in st Bart's! Not everyone gets to bring home a Johnny deep pirate look alike, who would pass up that opportunity, it's a once in a lifetime dream come true!
Dear Aviva, I am FLOORED Ramona and Sonja seem to believe it's ok to impose such one-sided selfish "rules" for trips they're not even hosting!!! And then to even THINK about pushing their way into the master suite too???? How GROSSLY rude can someone be??!!! I don't care WHERE they may have thought Carol wanted to sleep...so trashy! As the hostess, it's up to Carol how things should go - plain & simple! A hosts' hospitality for their event should NEVER be questioned much less challenged. What I also don't understand is why they insist on making such a HUGE deal of it? I mean, if Reid stays in the house, he can go do his own thing just like you're describing. Big freakin deal! Everyone needs to work together. What is UP with that??? Having found out about the bedroom conversation to oust Reid from the house would definitely have hurt my feelings in a big way too. That whole conversation deviously conspired by Ramona was just DISGUSTING, and I always used to like her...crazy and all. Man, it is just HARD to go on vacations with a big group of women mostly because just like what we saw from Ramona and Sonja, courtesies and sacrifices need to ALWAYS be extended for the group as a whole, not "I only care about ME and what I want" childish attitudes that end up destroying EVERYONE's vacation. So TRASHY! Now I totally understand why you called them that in the previews! There's just no other word for such vile behavior.
You are definately the life of the party! You and Sonja are a hoot! Love it! I have to say, I agree about Reid! Totally changes a "girls weekend"! I understand Russ being there, it was put out there from the beginning and he wasn't there 24/7 or didn't appear to be! Aviva, grow up!
Ramona you knew this was not a girls' trip. Carole told you she was going to St. Barths to meet with her man and invited you "ladies" to join. Just because you made this a girls' trip in your head, and in your world you get what you demand doesn't mean it is really going to happen. It was wrong of you to outcast Aviva like that, if she wanted to be with you girls and that required her bringing her husband, then stop being so mean and immature and just let it go. If that means you weren't going to tone it down for them, then fine, but don't act like you wouldn't go if she brought her husband because that is immature and ridiculous. Things aren't made JUST FOR YOU.
You really need to grow up. You and Sonja can be so rude and demanding, its embarrassing to watch. Have some respect for the other ladies, they are nothing but gracious to you even when you treat them so poorly
My partner and i love you. You act like a gay man and that's always the best type of straight woman. Lesbians are not counted. But, you and Sonja drink way too much. I know it's great for the show but I hope it's not your usual life style. It gets messy and unsophisticated to the very maxola!! If you're ever in Orange County Ca we hope to meet you.
FairIsFair LOL I have a sneaky suspicion that Mario is dancing with glee that she is in St. Barts and HE has a vacation from all that CRAZY for awhile. It has to be exhausting and embarrassing to have that as your wife.
You are a older woman you should act like one. Stop being so crazy eyed and thirsty for attention. Grow up. If your family is so well off why do you have to make a fool of yourself for a check. When people do unsavory things for money they are called hookers. IJS
