I think Sonja's idea of having two looks for her photo shoot was a good one, which I encouraged her to pursue. Heather and Sonja both had strong visions. Sonja's was to have shots of herself alone and also separate shots of the toaster. I still believe a focus group before shooting would have provided the answers as to what direction to take.
I was very excited about the launch of my Ramona Red Wine. The Pierre is a very special place to me, it is where Mario and I renewed our vows. This was the perfect place to host the introduction of my Sangiovese Merlot from Tuscany. It just so happened I was also on the cover of two magazines J'Adore and Millennium -- I have never been on one cover, let alone two, so I thought, why not celebrate that also?
The fact that LuAnn has no comprehension that my wine is a large business, which I am passionate about and invested in, just proves to me her lack of business savvy. I was so thrilled about introducing the newest addition to my Ramona wine brand -- now I have a red to complement my white.
What people don't know is I enjoy my red wine as much as I do white -- I don't drink red wine in public as it would end up all over myself and friends (LOL!).
YOU STARTED THE DRAMA...YOU DIDDN'T HAVE TO PULL HER ASIDE RIGHT THEN AND THERE...god u are so obnoxious
You wouldn't be so intolerable if you lived by your own rules. You decry anyone who talks about you behind your back, but you are obliged to talk about others behind their back.
You participate when the other women come to you to talk about someone else behind their back.
Have you ever told Jacques to his face that you thought his accent was phony?
It's funny that you didn't see the irony in your behavior at the party while screaming about Heather. You probably aren't sure what the word irony means.
i also thought the cab driver scene was hilarious...i am just like you and he should remember the damned address! he should jot it down before driving if he's too stupid. you were as polite as you could be considering he had to keep asking you! it was 114...what a moron...hell i remembered it better than he did! you cracked me up when you told him it's odd on the left, even on the right, and he should know that if he's a good driver...i'm educated and intelligent myself and never knew that "rule." every time i look for an address, i check to see which side is odd and which is even...guess i'm not that smart after all! you looked stunning in the cab btw and it was great to see you and sonja at the doctor and you and lu ann getting along so well shopping...she can be nice and down to earth i think...:))
judyann325 Ramona thinks she can control the world. I bet that if she had stopped talking for even a millisecond that the cabby would have been okay. (After all, remember that it wasn't just her that got into that cab. She not only brought her dog, but her film crew as well.)
I think Ramona *thinks* that she can't stop talking because she's so smart and savvy. However, I wouldn't be surprised if the reason she can't stop talking is because she is trying to drown out all the years of yelling that her father did with her own voice.
I hope she finds peace someday - because right now she's pitiful as far as I'm concerned.
ramona, i think you and sonja are just fantastic...you're like schoolgirls and it's wonderful to see women of my age having so much fun! frankly, i had never heard of your wine before watching the show but i'm impressed you have your own line. i'm sure it's delicious and very impressed with your sense of smell...wow! try to give sonja a break...in all fairness, you asked sonja how the photo shoot went at your party...you were looking for dirt on heather and i don't blame you, but that probably wasn't the best venue to discuss such a hot-button issue for both of you. poor sonja had had a few drinks i could tell, and she tried to be honest but discreet. you were just out-of-line to throw it in heather's face...it is none of your business and you owe sonja an apology. of course heather steamrolled her but you should have kept that between you and sonja. that poor woman is trying to be polite since heather did help orchestrate the shoot. what did you expect her to say? she did admit that she had told you heather steamrolled her and laughed in heather's face, which was hilarious! i'm proud of you for walking away instead of letting your temper get the best of you...taking a "time out" so to speak. i have anger issues too and it does help to diffuse. heather had no right to tell mario you were "crazy" and she's a liar and then tried to cover and say she just said you were "acting crazy." your apartment in nyc is just gorgeous!! omg...and aviva was way out of line to attack sonja and you about her charity event. it was very gracious of you to apologize and give her a check and she was very disrespectful to poor sonja about her dog. shame on her.
Doesn't surprise me that you don't blog as quickly as the other women - I guess because all the bad responses I wouldn't want to get on here either if I were you.....You need more wine....to relax and treat people nicer....You don't demonstrate the respect for others that you expect everyone to give you and you haven't changed in years.....not a big fan at all of yours....sorry
Ramona, The shoot was between Sonja and heather, not you and Heather. So, she DID NOT owe you a call...That is absurd. And to believe that Heather was talking about you when your name wasn't even a part of the conversation is INSANE. you looked crazy and when you shake your head and move your face so fast, it makes me dizzy. You need to calm down.
I've been re-watching Season 3. I want the Season 3 Ramona back!! You were still abrasive and tightly wound, but also showed a softer, more compassionate, more BALANCED side.
Ramona, Stay real! You and Sonja are too funny together. Heather is playing up to the viewers. What she says sounds like she practices to make herself look above and better than the other cast members. That is not reality TV and she is very annoying.
lynnwhitlock It would be my reality. People have different levels of maturity in dealing with conflict.
There's a big difference between saying what everyone else is thinking and in just being mean. It's fairly apparent that you haven't learned that lesson yet.
Ramona: You are utterly ridiculous. I am so embarrassed for you. To act like that on TV in front of millions, you must have a strange sense of reality. Bravo: please, please replace her with someone with a brain and humility. Please.
I disagree, I think Heather is one of the most honest and real, Ramona just keeps making a scene to get attention
Diane69802 NOT!!! Heather is enjoying upsetting others, and Heather does talk behind people's backs, watch the episode again!!!
myryanpooh Now think about that statement....they ALL talk behind everyones back!! Why is so different for Heather? Ramona does it every other minute!
Myryanphooh, they all talk about each other, not anyone one of them is different than the other...so what is your point. Ramona goes on and on about Heather talking behind her back and yet every episode shows her talking badly about others while they are not present.
Alycat9705 Diane69802 It's true, Ramona seems to not be ok with speaking tactfully. When Aviva mentioned how upset she was that R and S did not go to her charity event, R forcefully told her to say it aggressively, and not nicely. Unfortunately, she, and it seems her loyal fans as well, doesn't think anything is genuine if something is said in a nice, calm and respectful way. Why they think "nice=fake" is tragic and pathetic.
Alycat9705 omg i couldnt have said it any better myself...Ramona is just mad because u can tell Heather isint phased by Ramona at all lol...it is getting extremely painful to watch with Ramona acting a fool every 5 seconds
MommaHurley It seems to me some people actually believe that when someone mature and genuine like Heather, ignores the beration and demands of an unruly "child" like Ramona (who insists that HER way is the only correct way, and consistently acts bratty), and refuses to give in to the Ramona's immature, inappropriate, selfish, disrespectful and mean demanding ways and tantrums, she, Heather, gets deemed The Mean and Selfish One, just because she is mature enough to behave with dignity and kindness while standing her ground firmly. Why is that? Unbelievable.
Ramona's the worst. She talks behind everyone's back constantly, yet she yells at Heather for the same thing.
Ramona, Heather doesn't have business with you - she has business with Sonja. What would make you think she owed you a call?
Why would Heather owe you a phone call ? It was not your photo shoot. Sonja owed you a phone call - not Heather.
because they made an agreement of the phone call, as Ramona stated in the beginning of her blog.
LaurainCali WilliamOfTroy They made an agreement to deal with each other directly when there were issues or concerns not regarding the photo shoot . This was something between heather and sonja.... not ramona. if anyone should have called her is should have been Sonja..... her BFF.
Bravo, please replace her with more lovely ladies like Heather and Aviva. Ramona shows a lack of class and grace that is beyond words. Heather did Sonja a huge favor by helping her envision the shoot, and you walked in like a freshman in college, trying to run the show. Your lack of experience was painfully obvious to everyone watching. Please, leave the show and stop embarrassing yourself.
Ramona ... It was not Heather's place to call you about the photo shoot because you were never a part of Sonja's product branding to begin with. Heather's business is with Sonja not you. You should discuss that with Sonja. I would like to know why Sonja didn't go to you for business advice from the beginning. In the past have you been included in her other business ventures?
You're sense of smell may be good, but your hearing needs attention. Jacques is French, therefore, his accent is authentic. Why would you make fun of him and behind his back of all things??? So childish.
I think Heather acts like a hawk, she swoops in for the kill and Ramona is running for cover. Now Heather is doing it to Sonja and they both are running for cover together. Just wait Im sure Heather will do it to the others soon too. She is borish and uncaring and insensitive and Heather needs to go.
k.miller That is truly one of the most perplexing statements, really! Heather has been so kind, patient, professional and accommodating. I don't see a single mean streak in her. She did not invite R to London because R has yelled, bullied, talked behind her back, and tried to get others to not like her since the beginning. Besides, Ramona is totally unfiltered. It was, after all, H.'s business trip/vacation. Would you want to travel with someone that constantly put you down, challenged you and talked badly about you when you'd like to relax after working? Plus would you want to have that person without impulse control around your business associates? Why would someone want to invite someone who's constantly challenging, berating and correcting her when the accuser does those things, and more, and much worse! S, on the other hand, approached H for help, and because she couldn't pay, H agreed to help her pro bono. But, she's NOT Sonja's servant, nor is the team H put together. If she's going to help S, she and her team want to do it right because they have the expertise and experience. Sonja's ideas were taken into consideration but they have to do their work correctly, even if they weren't getting paid. The outcome, whether it succeeded or failed, would have reflected on both S and H's professional reputation. Why on earth would she want to risk that? If they did everything S wanted and failed her, THEY would be the ones blamed. And Sonja and R would have blamed Heather and her team completely. But unfortunately, not only was S very inconsiderate, ungrateful and bratty in her behavior, she refused to give H any credit. Without H, S would NOT have had ANYONE help her for free. She should have thanked H that even without payment H was still willing to give it their best shot for S's benefit. She tried to back out of the project to preserve their NEW friendship, and S berated her for being a quitter. After the wrap H told S that the most important thing is that S is happy. So exactly HOW is she like a predator and a hawk again? I've never seen her cuss, scream, throw a tantrum, not say thank you etc. Besides, if Ramona were such a true friend to Sonja, why didn't she help Sonja instead? Perhaps it's because Sonja couldn't pay her and Ramona will NOT do anything for free, even for a "friend".
Exactly, I love heather and i think Ramona and Sonja need some help in the maturity department.
Ramona, I wish u would allow people to answer your accusations, u run in, say what u want and then run away! ??? How is that adult or bettering your self. Sonja was the culprit that should of called you. You and Heather are not friends, why would she call u? Besides Sonja clearly had her plan already set in stone. Heather didn't talk behind your back, you did that to everyone else! I hope this seasons opens your eyes, and makes you aware that YOU need to face a confrontation, not run and hide. You and Avery were so funny at yoga!!
Ramona, Heather is so right , there is no need for you to be there. What I saw was that Sonya was going to do just what she wanted to do. She came late, never listened to anyone and simply took full advantage of their kindness to help her out. She doesn't even offer to pay so what kind of influence could you have had. NOTHING.
Ramona, I love you and you are my favorite!
I have watched you from day one and you do a great job at trying to work things out with others but Heather is a real pain in the side! Everything she accuses you of doing she is doing it more!
It is unfortunate that Heahter can't get over your remark on the first show about her not letting others talk! She should have appreciated your advice but she won't let it go and continues to attack everything you say and do now! I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT HEATHER IS JEALOUS OF YOU AND YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS! You have achiedved so much more than she and your net worth is many times more than hers as well!
My advice to you is to rise above Heahter, let her go! You are much more pleasant on the eyes to look at!
@GaleB Absolutely agree with you! heather came on this show with an agenda! Take down the most popular person and gain publicity for her underwear line ( which incidentally is not original or better than the average shape wear that you can find at any department store). Heather is brash. Annoying. Ang incredibly pushy!! Cannot stand her!
GaleB I agree with you, Heather is not real, not authentic as the old timers would have said (look where that got them, off the show!)
GaleB what in the world are you talking about??? why would heather be jealous of ramona's accomplishments??? you do know about heather's multi-national or, i'll put it another way, global company, right? i've never even seen ramona's products sold anywhere but qvc, which i'm sure makes a lot of money when they feature them....have you tried her pinot grigio? it's horrendous!!! trust me, heather is not jealous of ramona's accomplishments. to suggest it is utterly laughable.
Ramona has talked a lot about how bad her childhood was and that her father yelled constantly at the family. Ramona expresses herself by yelling at the other women when she is mad which is so dysfunctional and degrading. You think she would have learned from her childhood that is a very negative way of communicating and only turns people off. I feel Ramona needs counseling to learn how to talk to people in a less combative manner.
