I think it is admirable that Sonja wants to pursue her own business. It takes a lot of time and energy, and
I am not sure if she realizes the commitment that needs to be made. TrueFaithJewelry.com and the jewelry for HSN.com I developed six years ago, then came TruRenewal skin care, and most recently Ramona pinot grigio. To say it takes a lot of work is an understatement.
It's important to bounce your ideas off of other people. I think it was smart of Sonja to pick my brain and Heather's. You can never get too much advice from people who have successful businesses.
God how I miss Jill she always nailed you right on the head. These new women are sharp cookies you are going to have to straighten up and fly right or face them. You seem so insecure with Mario, it's a bummer. I know the PInot thing has become a joke, but there is nothing at all funny about alcoholism. I wish you luck, you really need to learn to be totally honest with yourself.
Ramona you are my favorite. I like that you are blunt and to the point. I don't see you as mean or petty but very direct.
Sonya is in danger of going all "Grey Gardens," she is becoming a caricature of her former self. She is self absorbed and will stab you in the back in a skinny minute. She is not a friend to anyone but herself. She seems very damaged and lost trying too hard to pretend she's the belle of the ball. Sonya was a favorite of mine but she is just silly this year and not fun loving or cute. Sad. She is no longer the life of the party, she is the crazy aunt in every Southern family they hand a cocktail and put on the front porch to talk to herself.
Aviva appears to be very wishy washy, blowing with the wind. She takes the title of co-dependent to new heights. She can't breath without her husband? Really? Then I hope life is all sunshine, lollipops and unicorns for the chick but unfortunately that isn't the way it works. She is too neurotic for my taste, I like people with a backbone.
I like the Carol so far. She tries a little too hard to be cool, she's not 18 anymore, but she does seem kind, nice and not easily swayed by the BS that is being spewed by Heather and the Countless.
And Heather is that mean girl in high school that had to be the center of attention at all times. Hope you got lucky and didn't get that invite to London, can you imagine 2-3 days of THAT?!? That still doesn't excuse Heather and her pettiness and her desire to hurt you. Hope she didn't succeed.
Ramona, Luann is just trying to cover her but, she's afraid people will find out about that young girl at the party, so she met with you to give her version. You could tell how nervous she was! I've been watching since the show started and I'm so bored, these new girls bore me to tears. Thank god for you and Sonja to spice it up!! I guess it's better than watching Jill and Kelly, though!!
Ramona, you are blunt and say what you mean, but I don't think I This is going to turn out good for you. I know you're smart, you have succeed in all your businesses. Take some of that intelligence and apply it to other facets of your life. You are not coming off GOOD on camera so far. Can't you have conversations without insulting the individual? I would think you would never want Avery to be as rude and aggressive with people. Listen more, talk less. Your behavior is going to come back and bite you in the ass. I'm a fan of yours and I want to continue to be a fan. Best wishes, Ren
I love, love, love you! Am I the only person who misses the OLD cast? I wish you the best, and think speaking your mind is way better than being snarky behind someone's back! I will keep watching this sad season as long as you are here!!!
Ramona you contradict yourself so much you are the one that will not let anyone get a word in do you watch the show? You just don't seem as classy some of the lady's just sayin!
Ramona dear, we all know you apologized to Heather only because you thought it might get you an invite to London!!
Love that Ramona. I do miss Alex tho. Heather seems to me to want all the attention, its about her. Not sure on the other 2 new girls. I think it was classless not to invite you Ramona on the London trip, considering its the show. I would not want to go period with Heather. Stay strong Ramona, your a tough cookie. These girls don't even want to try to be a friend, it all about being on TV. Heather just wants her undergarmet business to boom from this, thats all. Don't like the new girls..
Hey! Ramona! Stay the way you are, there are lots of people that are jealous of you and want to start some s--- with you.
So.... Let me get this straight. One of the first times I see Heather on this show, you AND your husband are jumping on her for talking too much and not letting others get a word in. Yet you are surprised she did not invite you on the London trip. Why would she? You obviously do not enjoy conversations with her, so why would she want you there and, better question, why would you want to be there. Except for the fact that you were left out. That seems to be the real issue with you. Even when Heaher asks to meet for drinks you have lunch with Carole and Aviva and spend the whole time bashing Heather for her conversation skills. ???? Really? It does not seem that you want to spend time with her, so, again, why do you want to go on the Londong trip? Just some basic etiquette advice.... a lady is one who always makes others feel comfortable in their presence regardless of any shortcomings they may have. You, dear, seem to go out of your way to NEVER make others feel comfortable. IJS.
I LOVE the notebook idea... because I thought I was the only one!
I have even been made fun of my trusty dusty journal with "dear diary..." jokes made by my colleagues at work. I have the last laugh though, it's as important as my smart phone, but has client details and acts as a 2nd memory function. I can go back to it, and see what needs to be done, what IS done, ideas, names of clients pets and children etc!
I really feel sorry for you Ramona. You are so pitiful almost begging for an invitation to London. You would have gone a longer way if you woud have just let it allone and maybe the next time it would have turned out different. You need to quiet yourself down or you'll ice yourself out of RHONY.
