Ramona hopes you're ready for a serious roller coaster ride this season.

OMG -- what's up with LuAnn? I thought we were so over this last year. Yes, children are off limits. Why LuAnn would fabricate that I threatened her is beyond me. As far as an apology, I gave one last year, after we filmed the reunion and in the press. How many times more do I need to? LuAnn is LuAnn and she tends to forget how passive aggressive she has been with me in the past. More importantly, why would LuAnn share this at lunch with women we all just recently met?



As far as Sonja, I tend to mother people when I am close to them, as I was the oldest of four children. Sonja has been having a rough time getting past the fact she is no longer married. I know she is ready for a quality relationship with a man. It can be hard to let go, and I was speaking like a mom to her daughter when I corrected her at the table. I am not her mom, so it probably was not my place. I do love Sonja like a sister and mother -- if that's possible.

First, dear BRAVO, make my day and print my comment, please?! Hi Ramona! Just wanted an opportunity let you know I'm looking forward to this season and seeing more of your business ventures thrive. One of my favorite parts of this show, though, is lmao at yours and Sonja's hilarious antics! I have to say that I am really sad that Alex is gone. She was quickly becoming such a fun 3rd in you stooges! I also had gained even more respect for you and Sonja as you stood up for and by her as she was finding her voice, and her own sense of humor was delightful. I know you count Jill as a friend, but honestly I couldn't have watched another season of her, Kelly and...Cindy? In Alex's words, whaaat was that? Finally, I'm SO glad you showed LuAnn what real class is when it came to gossiping. I am concerned about what is going to happen this season with editing, etc. It seemed to me everyone was on the 'Let's kill Ramona' next. I'm on the west coast, so episode 2 hasn't been shown here yet, but there was so much trash talk about you it made me sick! Should they turn you into the next Teresa Guidesse, I'm finished with all of TRH. I consider myself one of Bravo's programming biggest fans and allies, but my frustration is growing into my all too familiar daily life, filled with too much drama! I'm one who actually enjoys seeing beautiful, intelligent women love life while living it! I have become very suspicious of manipulating scenes and situations as less than truthful of the content. That's not my kind of fun! I'll be watching in less than 2 hours and hopefully I'll feel better about it all! Cheers! (Oh, btw, skipped LuAnn's blog but read the comments and was happy to see so many of my own sentiments there!)

Totally agree with Giselle Russo regarding the season opener. I'm 30 minutes into week 2 and thinking that you're never going to get any better. The manner in which you over-dramatize everything is painful to watch. And, stop with the wine every time you turn around. Your truly appear that you have an issue.

Dear Ramona,

I want to tell you to watch out for Sonya. I DO NOT like the way she is all up in your husbands face. I am getting a strange vibe from her and notice that when you and Mario are standing together at a party, Sonya will come and stand between the two of you. At your Hamptons party, she looks at Mario and says, let's go check the meatballs, and off he went with her. I realize that you are trying to stand by her during her hard time, but remember, "no good deed goes unpunished". I also remembered the episode when you ladies were in Morocco and the fortune teller told you that although you think of your husband, there is another women. Sonya was standing behind you crying and said it reminded her of her broken marriage. That was a bizzare explaination. I think she was crying because she IS the other women. Be VERY careful of single women who used to be married to weathly men and lost them. I do not like the eye contact that I keep noticing between Mario and Sonya. I hope I am wrong Ramona, but watch your back and your husband. Watch the show and see if you can feel a certain vibe between them. Good luck this season and keep your eye on Sonya.

Ramona, a reading speed of 150 words-per-minute (WPM) is very slow. The average reading speed for a college-bound high school junior is around 250 WPM. Before you "brag", maybe you should know what you are talking about. Just saying....

I believe Heather says it best...When you hurt someones feelings, You Apologize. Its not always about right or wrong, sometimes taking the high road means rising above pettiness. Grow up Ramona. I do Not care about your every warped thought. I cringe every time you step off the curb of humanity and enter your own cruel world of hurting other peoples feelings. To bring up and judge another mother with no compassion, just pure hateful comtempt shows how low a person you are. Just saying it like it is Ramona...but you know all about that.

Ramona, To tell you the truth, I can't really get into another roller coaster ride with RHs. All are the same. I have given all a second chance and after this year I will no longer watch any of the RHs. I will continue to watch RHoNJ this season and that is it for me. I don't understand why Bravo has to keep up the drama with all the RHs. I have been watching all RHs since inception. If Bravo continues with the craziness with the other shows, I will also stop watching. My favorite show is Top Chef. I will Watch What Happens Live, Chef Roble and Co and Shahs of Sunset. If Bravo make Top Chef like the Real Housewives and the other shows I listed, I will not continue to watch. I can't really get into Top Chef Maters. I like it when it was Master Top Chef.

I'm so glad to see you standing up to LuAnn! I know you'd never threaten anyone's kids, and it looks like she's making things up just to get attention. I LOVE that you're back this season! Hang in there!

We love you Ramona!!! Don't worry about Luann!!! She is transparent in her need to rally the new ladies against you! It is obvious that she has previous relationships with them.... Luann always starts the season with trying to gang up on someone! I admire that you did NOT find the party the proper time & place to get into it with Luann no matter how much you said no. As for anyone else listening to your conversation with your husband and making comments about whether or not to call an ambulance for you..... they should have minded their business instead of repeating what they heard you say to Mario. Of course your heart was beating fast, of course your going to tell Mario about it!!!!!

Like you said Luann won't stop until she has humiliated you, taken your blood and gets you off the show!!!!!!

We love you Ramona!!!!! I know you have apologized to Luann already and I do not believe her tale of black mail!

I absolutely loved watching you shut Luann down! She has a biting way of speaking to people that usually lets her get the upper hand, but you beat her at her own game. It was so much fun to watch!

Ramona, you're totally awesome!!!!! The other ladies are just jealous!!! I love how you are upfront and say what's on your mind instead of the going behind people's back nonsense that the others do. I'm not sure why LuAnn is still even on the show. She's so annoying and needs to get off her high horse. She's no countess, she's "classless". Sonja is nice too!!! With the exception of Carole, the other two are just boring and Heather seems bonkers. She needs to shut up every now and then. Keep being you Ramona. You rock!!!!!

I love you Ramona! Always keeping it real! Who cares if you did "threaten" Luann...it was the truth! If an underage girl was drinking alcohol at her party, then Luann is responsible! That is the law. She is lucky the girl didn't die, or they would have thrown The Countess in the slammer!

Dear Ramona - love u...You don't owe her (Countless) an apology. She is coming off as ridiculous and the mean girl again this season. Cannot stand watching or listening to her! Especially when she touts her "class" - actions speak much louder than words, and it's obvious she is a fake. Stand your ground - you are in the right.

LuAnn likes to take front and center and start every season with a fight. She started two years ago accosting Bethenny in a bar when they met for drinks, she accosted Ramona on the first show on the yacht she rented over something Ramona didn't say (her husband her LuAnn "Countless" - big whoop!) and now this season she starts by confronting Ramona in the middle of a party.

It's old already. Get a new plan, LuAnn.

I watched "First Look" last night and Ramona did not deny that she said those things to Luanne via phone and/or text. Her only response was that they weren't threats because everyone knows how Luanne is. She then went on to attack Luanne's parenting style, yet again. So if Ramona feels that the children are off limits, why does she keep bringing up the way Luanne parents?

I agree with the viewer that said Ramona thinks she can say whatever she wants to and about people as long as she says it to their face!

I love you Ramona! You look beautiful, you have a zest for life, drink, dance & have fun. You're AWESOME and don't ever change! LuAnn is constantly trying to make you look bad, take her down! She is evil! You are the only one that stands up to her, and calls her out on her condesending remarks. She is constantly taking shots at you and behind your back she's already trying to get the new cast members against you. I honestly think she's jealous of your selfmade money, wonderful family & happy life. Don't let her ruin your happieness. Keep dancin girl !! ;)

I hope Heather watches the 1st episode and sees what everyone else SHOULD'VE seen.Yes she DID interrupt Mario. R we ALL watching the SAME show...wow ? It's interesting to see how ppl have different point of views when we r all watching the same show! Why did LuAnn go 2 lunch with the girls and SUDDENLY leave...now that is COUNTLESS behavior as she always displays. LOVE U RAMONA!

Ramona,I think you might be crazy,but I know you have a good heart,and you are funny. Luann has no class. You never bring up unpleasant personal issues at a party. She of all people should know that. What a bitch she is. Sonja is the best,love her. Not sure yet about new girls

taped the first show; heard 1 minute, which seemed like an ETERNITY of Ramonas mouth, deleted the show, and changed the setting to DO NOT RECORD. What a waste of my time that would have been.

Hi Ramona, I think some bad feelings between you and Luann remain from last season. Something occurred then that bothered me a lot. It is this: You explained very clearly and calmly that your daughter Avery did not wish you to appear in Luann's second music video. Luann should have simply said, "That's fine, Ramona. I understand your decision."

Instead Luann started to criticize you for giving your husband a foot massage after your return from the trip to Morocco. What they heck? Even if Avery had seen that video of you giving Mario a good massage, there's no reason for a daughter to think ill of her mother for that. None at all. She knows very well that her Mom and Dad love one another. A foot massage may be a simple gesture of kindness; it need not be the prelude to a night of lovemaking. Yet Louann attempted to paint an unsavory picture of it -- for no reason! That told me something about her -- that Luann seemed unable to accept a friend's honest explanation without a quick response to insult that friend.

Something else must have occurred last year, that gave Luann the clear impression that you were faulting her for her parenting skills. That's not a good idea, Ramona. It's deliberately unkind.

You can be proud of your own daughter without faulting Luann's son and daughter in any way. Strive to rise above it, or you will lose respect from others.

Maybe lay off the alcohol, too. Your drinking is contributing to your loose tongue even at your own dinner party. You seemed confrontational with your guest Heather when she first arrived, instead of helping to put her at ease as a hostess should do.

I swore I wouldn't watch again this year, and yet here I am. I was saddened at the way you and Mario chided Heather, who was a guest in your home. Then, you scolded Sonja when she referred to her "husband." When did it become your place to correct others? It was very much like watching Luann a few seasons back. At a luncheon specifically designed to discuss manners with her daughter's friends, one asked a simple and honest question about cutting her food. Rather than answering it simply, Luann humiliated the girl by laughing at the honest question. You (and Mario) humiliated both a new acquaintance and an old friend. It only diminished you, as you tried to diminish them.

I swore after the reunion I was done torchuring myself with NYC- but then these new ladies joined and I thought- ok. I'll give it another chance. ENTER RAMONA. Honestly...get help woman! The only one who can stand her is Sonya- her personal punching bag. Why doesn't BRAVO get some class and get rid of this HOT MESS RAMONA! Sorry new girls- you seem interesting- smart- and classy but this viewer is over Ramona.

Regardless of LuAnn vs. Ramona...lets not forget the obivious fact that Ramona has issues. Major issues! She's uncomfortable with unfomfortable topics or conversations, making her either be completely insensetive and quite frankly socially awkward. I know the spotlight can make people seem crazy but season after season Ramona never ceases to amaze with her foolishness and child like behavior. Its not clear if her issues make actually behave like 3 year old or if she's just plan clueless and has no insight into her actions. I think its time she get therapy, its long overdue!!

Ramona, you may be ramotional, but you are not a manipulator, or a back-stabbing phony. You have a good heart, & I'm glad that I realize that about you. I think you should apologize to Heather for putting her down at your party, but you don't need to give Luann anything, except for a good therapist number, so she can learn the difference bewteen telling a lie, & telling the truth! It's the first episode, & Luann is flinging, & huffing & puffing about last year's non-sense. That didn't work for Jill, & it's annoying for is viewers! We like a fresh start. We have fresh faces, why do we want to hear the same old crow(Luann), cackling her same tune!

Ramona, it seems you have trouble owning up to the things you say and do. I'm not sure how your phone call with Luann actually went down, but I'm sure you said something to her about her kids that you probably shouldn't have said. If you admit kids are off limits, and you want to get along this season & avoid the drama, you should've just apologized to Luann. Saying "I'm sorry I hurt your feelings, and kids should be off limits" wouldn't hurt you and likely would've satisfied Luann. It's such a shame that women have to be so critical of one another, especially in terms of what kind of mothers they are, when it's really no one's place to judge. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. Slow down, have some empathy and just try to enjoy yourself without worrying about what everyone else is doing. My constructive criticism for the day! :)

Most of us know that love her or hate her, Jill was the reason we watched the show. It will never be the same. Our group of real housewives are not tuning in. Your ratings were poor for the first episode and they will continue to decline. Bye Bye RHONY!

The show will never reclaim its popularity since it let Jill go. Everyone knows, love her or hate her, she was basically the whole show. Our group of housewives are not watching anymore. Ratings were poor for first episode and will continue to decline. Bye Bye RHONY, glad to see you go!
