If LuAnn wanted to clear the air with me she should have invited me to meet up privately. Confronting me at Sonja's party was not the right thing to do, and was inappropriate and disruptive to Sonja and her guests.
When we finally did meet up, I was not prepared for what was about to happen. I have apologized privately to LuAnn about last year's reunion, and when that did not seem to be enough, I apologized publicly. LuAnn is very passive-aggressive, which can be equally offensive, and hurtful. I felt pushed against a wall at the reunion. Regardless, I should never have brought up her daughter. People make mistakes, and it's important to acknowledge and learn from them. Children are off-limits. I apologized immediately and repeatedly. I'm not quite sure what else LuAnn is looking for?
When the word "blackmail" came out of her mouth, I was shocked. It sounded like a line right out of a movie. And just like movies, this story was completely fabricated! It is difficult for me to know what else to say about it because there is no truth to it. Not only does blackmail sound ridiculous, but what rewards could I possibly gain from it?
I'm not sure why LuAnn has fabricated this story and continued this saga. That is for you to decide. Don't you think she needs somethIng more relevant to dwell on?
I think what LuAnn wants is for you to mind your own business and stay out of hers, along with not talking badly about her, and being such a rude abrasive person. You were wrong, make your apology like you should and LuAnn deserves.You like to brag about being so honest and telling it like it is, but your honesty is rude and hurtful, and telling like it is, is according to Ramona, not necessarily the truth of the matter. You come across as such an unhappy person taking it all out on all around you, is it Mario? I have a feeling he isn't the devoted husband you like to portray.My husband really wouldn't dare drool over other women with me in his presence!
I like you Ramona. I do think you are blunt and sometimes a little quirky and neurotic, but in a good way. You are who you are and you dont try to be something you aren't. I appreciate that. Plus I think you have a good heart and it shows. I think Luann was harsh with you and honestly, you handled the situation much better than she did. Cheers to you.
THANK YOU for standing up to LuAnn. She is so condescending and makes so many snide comments, thank you for calling her out on it. Love the way you completely shut her down by being honest in Central Park. She was ready for battle, ready to start WW III, and by pointing out how rude she is to you on a regular basis, and confronting her snobbery you completely shut her down. Bravo, way to stick up for yourself! Oh, and thanks for the manicure tip.
I find the caption "Ramona doesn't understand what else Luanne wants from her" disturbing. I would hope that you would not waste time trying to make sense from nonsense. You are not obliged to refute her imagination. She is nuts.
luann is crazy cause she really thinks that her behavior and the way she speaks to people is classy its like their beneath her i would not keep her as a friend unless you need someone to treat u like the crap beneath her shoes and im really pissed at how she just accused you of starting things with jill while you were on vacation if she's a real friend she shouldnt have taken sides so that goes to show how much class she really has which is nonexistant
Ramona -- luann just wants you to own what you say and if your not sorry for saying that she is a bad mom then say your not sorry for saying it -- instead of saying Im not going to apologize. The problem you have Ramona is your not clear at times
THis is what you should say - Yes Luann I said it and Im not sorry for saying it -- so dont expect an apology ---
But you deny saying things and cuz you think you will have to apologize if you admint but you dont -- We just want too see you finally after all these years admit to saying what you say and then stand behind it face to face ... instead of calling others crazy and making accusations -- JUST OWN IT for ONCE .. It very liberating ...
One second you say children are off limits and the next you tell LuAnn "everyone knows you aren't home with your children" SHAME ON YOU RAMONA!! How LuAnn raises her children is between LuAnn and her children... it's NONE of your business. You are definitely not my favorite this season!
I find it so interesting that on paper you always seems appropriate but in actions you are not. You have been judgemental and have critized so many people in these last years for the exact thing that you are guilty of. Suzi
RAMONA- You're "a breath of fresh air"! Hopefully, the 3 new women won't buy into LuAnn's nonsense. It sounds like they saw through her dramatic "blackmail" saga! Be yourself, but try to edit what you say!!! Just because you think it doesn't mean you have to say it!
Ramona, You do not listen to people. You need to sit back and look at how you behave. It is really frightening.
the more true the accusations made about/to ramona, the more spastic & jerky her body motions become.....just turn the volume down & we'll all see when Ramona's lying.....better than a lie detector test!!!!
1- You can't say "wrong time" when you stated in the park "Luann, you're not in my life". You've got to allow her to speak when you meet another. 2- Since you "say what others feel" you must then know that many think you're a bully so call yourself out as one. Fair is fair, you're a bully. It's odd that everyone who doesn't agree with you is "wrong". Own your fault in being cruel towards Luann as you appear shallow. Children are off limits. 3- There is nothing wrong in apologizing for how someone took your words. You say you don't like Luann "Deep Down" but is that reason to hurt her? 4- You leave questions for us the viewers to answer your need for action. Be a big girl and answer your personal issues yourself.
I bow to you, Queen Ramona, for making history in just a little over 4 years of RHONY. Finally, someone took the time (I say this only because LuAnn isn't worth the time) and the poise, sharp tongue, guts, and CLASS, (yes that's right LuAnn, CLASS) to finally put her, LuAnn de Lesseps, in her place. Ramona darling, you spoke nothing but the truth as you always do and LuAnn was truly dumbfounded. The usual babble that spews from her mouth when she doesn’t know what to say while being confronted with the truth face-to-face was something to be reckoned with. She knew her last hand had been played at the meeting in the park when you squashed her with facts as she ranted on about the usual nonsense she couldn’t back-up. What could she really say as she left the park? If viewers go back to the tape, as they say in professional sports, and study LuAnn’s devious m.o. (modus operandi) and subtle catty remarks that go unnoticed until her victims are halfway out the door, it’s plain to see she was never qualified to write a book on the subject of manners. At least that’s Glinda’s opinion. Now finito -- GlindaTheGoodBitch has spoken.
But lastly Ramona dearest, as I wave my magic bitchdust-filled wand goodbye until next week, I’d be remiss not to mention the new jewelry designs you’ve been wearing from your collection are gorgeous. And I just love the website, TrueFaithJewelry.com. Simply fabulous!
Yea to you Ramona, I have watched LuAnn systematically bully you from the day I started watching the show. I must admit I was not a real Housewives fan, but my daughter Natalie who resently passed away at 35 was a big fan of yours and Bethany's got me hooked. You have never pretended to be anything but who you are, and that is a wonderful person for that. Don't let that witch get to you.
Really you don't know what LGBT is? It might have been a good idea to Google it befor you went to an event.
Ramona that was just mean. And you could tell by the look on your face that you did call LuAnn and say that. I do wish you and your family well though.
Why do all the housewives talk about how one another should talk to them in private about problems. Your on a reality tv show!! Why sign up if that's what you want.
YAY Ramona for FINALLY putting the "countess" in her true mean girl place. You said just what all of America wanted to tell her. It was HILARIOUS to see her reaction. She had nothing to say - you spoke truth. You have been so much nicer to her than she has ever been to you - just remember that.
Bravo should have canned LuAnn with the other brunettes. Did she promise them another auto-tuned iTunes song? She's vicious and nasty but always plays the victim. She seems lost without her troops this year...no wonder she's fighting so hard to rally the new girls to side with her. Hopefully they're smarter than that...even Heather must see through her antics!
So sad that you have to deal with LuAnn (again) this season. She is every thing you said and then some and she just truly doesn't fit in with the rest of the women.
Love you. You're the only reason I tune in, though I'm starting to like Carole and Aviva too. Luann clearly has no life and nothing constructive to do with her time. She needs to "get a hobby."
Ramona, She wants you to be GENUINELY sorry that you have said so many mean, hateful things directed at her as a mother and her children. That's all...and oh yes, and maybe for you to have learned from your mistake going after her children and to not repeat those mistakes.Simple really. Read Carole's book and maybe you will understand her better. You could also practice being a kinder, gentler Ramona.
Ramona, Stay away from LuAnn. She is nothing but a pretentious, toxic, bully. You don't owe her a thing!
Regarding Luann, you hit the nail on the head. She fabricated drama for herself so she'd have airtime. Am I buying her story? NO WAY. She doesn't have her running buddy this season so she tried to pull the new ladies onto her "side". Kind of pitiful to watch. You're right. She needs to get a job so she has something else to worry about. Not to mention, it would help her self esteem if she contributed to her own life. I hope she realizes that you were the "classy" one because you didn't run from person to person, from scene to scene, bashing Luann to anyone who would listen. If I were her family, I would be embarrassed. The show wouldn't be fun without you Ramona. I think you are TERRIFIC :) (when you started talking about your nails during the argument, I really did laugh out loud!!)
Really, I don't know why you keep apologizing to LuAnn. I have never heard LuAnn say she was sorry for the digs she made about Mario and your daughter...??? She needs to take her own advice and own what she says or should I say her "digs"...
Luann is crazy...you just need to avoid her. Yes, everyone says things that they regret later but this girl tries to put things in your mouth. She kept saying blackmail and that you ran away. She wanted you to say I ran away from you. But I am so glad you stood your ground.
I do not understand what Lu Ann's problem is with you, but children are off limits, period! And, she should read her own book.
Ramona you do not have to explain, you are a lovely classy lady and I know that you would not blackmail anyone, it just doesn't seem in your nature. I do have a question for you though...What are you using on your skin? This season you look so youthful and just STUNNING and have a beautiful glow about you. If I didn't know any better I swear I would think you were in your 30's and pregnant! haha Really enjoy you and Sonja this season and cannot wait to see more! Much love! xoxo
Just my opinion - but you need to let people finish talking FIRST! Seriously, you don't give anyone a chance, but I'm sure I might be the same way, if I was in your shoes, with the cameras rolling.
The best part of last night was watching Carole and her bf cruising down the streets of NYC! That's what I want to see, the lifestyle of living in NYC.
Sorry, ladies, but I'm already turned off by another season of high-school girls, talking about each other....
Wish everyone the best, but I think I'm done already.
Ramona You were so funny with the nail comment. It looked like Lu was about to crack up, it's nice to lighten up a moment.
This is one time I am in LuAnn's corner. She appears to be an excellent mother; shame on you Ramona. I think if I were you, I would be paying more attention to your goodlooking husband!
I'm not a doctor, but I'm wondering if you have adult ADHD. You speak really fast and sometimes your hard to follow.
Ramona, what a scene with Luanne. She was actually speechless for a few seconds. I am so glad you stood your ground. It will be interesting how the season plays out. You are still my favorite!
Can't decide who's telling the truth about "blackmail', but you did impugn Luann's parenting. As Carole said, that's not cool!
as you said ramona, lu ann needs to get a job!!! period. she is jealous of you, never been divorced, great kid, great husband, suceessful businesses, you've got all she wants!! at the park we could all see that she was lying abt the threats n blackmail!! phew,,,,please dont change who you are for anyone, say you mind!! you are 95% of the right. love u sooooooooo much.you are one of the reasons i still watch the show
I think your right Ramona, she should not have bought it up at Sonjas, and she should not have bought it up to the new girls. I also agree with you in that LuAnn is condescending in the way she speaks and good for you for calling her out on it. i do believe at this point just agree to disagree and move on. LuAnn is a good person she just needs more time away from Jill. Unless, Jill is still tweeting in her ear like a little birdie who knows. I think you and LuAnn can be friends LuAnn's a good Egg down deep!!
You are crazy as hell but in a good way. So far you Sonja, Luann, and Heather are interesting the rest of them are boring. I'm Sorry last night I missed the other ladies (jill Kelly, and Alex) besides you and Luann disagreement the show was very boring.
Ramona should never had been asked back. Her actions are getting old, just like her. Love the new housewives, that should get Ramona acting more neurotic. Sonja is getting stale.
Wow Luann's few friends are trying to persecute Ramona!!! GET OVER IT PEOPLE!! Back off Luann's minions, go bully someone else - we've got the best with Ramona!!! She doesn't LIE & will always tell the truth, no matter what it is! LOVE YOU RAMONA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
