Let's move on to the dinner at Aviva’s home. Harry Dubin is a good friend of mine, and I find it really inappropriate to talk about him behind his back when he's not there to defend himself. They share a child together, and I found this disrespectful to the child as well. Besides that, the conversation was going nowhere positive, and that's why I did my best to end it.
I could not believe the way George, Aviva’s father, was talking! I was so shocked that he would speak and act this way with mixed company. It made everyone uncomfortable. I thought the best way to handle this was to make sure the dinner ended as quickly as possible. This is why I went into the kitchen and said to bring the main course.
Rather than upset my hosts, Aviva and Reid, I played into the vulgar humor of George all weekend long to keep the peace. This is contrary to the way I normally would handle a situation like that.
Frick and Frack at it again! Some of my best times are getting ready with Sonja in my bathroom. I think this is one thing us women never grow out of! We love getting ready with girlfriends. Whenever we have gone away, Sonja would move right into my quarters. She’s like a sister to me. I love her so much. We of course were teasing Mario that she would move in to our room for the weekend. Mario, knowing how much I care for Sonja, has developed a friendship with her too.

Hi, well I am from England so behind with the show, it is hard to keep up with how likes who, what argument is going on. It does get on my nerves, however I must say Romona I understand LuAnn well I feel u have lost any understanding of real life.
It is funny. Ramona didn't know her own wine. She said it needed more depth. Wow. She didn't even know her own wine. She drank her own wine and didn't even know it. So wine expert?? I don't think so. Just because u can smell citrus, fruit, and flowers doesn't make you an expert.
even i was uncomfortable for Aviia you were very rude and aviva just wanted to be treated the same as every one in that pool. Im sure she knew what to do when she put her leg in the water.
she is a mother she does not need one
BRyder I didn't take how Ramona was acting as rude! She was acting "over protective". Im glad I waited to see what Ramona was actually upset over. If you see Ramona's blog, Aviva was concerned because she didn't bring her water/swimming leg. She was concerned that she would ruin the leg she would be using. Ramona, I believe, is a very compassionate person. She protects those she cares about. The SAD THING is that Aviva doesn't do what she should of done and stayed OUT of the pool. Ramona did exactly as Aviva had asked her to.
funny thing- looking online at 1983 Chateaux Marmont le grand cru prices- I can buy a bottle for $500-$700- maybe I should buy a case to sell to Ramona at $1400 a bottle and make some money! LMAO!
Ramona, I will give you credit for developing your businesses but I am sure you know Bravo helped you noone would have every known who you were.
At this point my suggestion and many other fans say you need to leave the show, you are no longer fun to watch. Honestly I have to turn down my TV when you come on. I am sure you know you have a problem but will not admit it.
Your attention span is nill, you argue with everyone. No one likes you on the show. You should have left last year when you renewed your vows that was nice.
The women that have been brought in are extremely intellegent, down to earth and overall nice people and don't hold grudges. That is what we need now. No more mean girls.
Please go now, you are hurting this show.
You are a loose canon my dear and if the rest of the cast doesn't watch out your cannonballs will explode all over them. Quit the show -- you are no longer needed.
Ramona should stop talking and listen. Her mouth gets in the way of people seeing her tender heart.
You need to take it down about 10 notches and go get that filter fixed. I normally like to watch you, but yuo are so intimidated by the new cast members that you are beginning to fall over the edge.
Sonja said it best..Ramona is an aquired taster. She speaks without realizing how it affects others but she is honest and speaks her mind to your face. I think her mind is running 100 mph all the time and thats why we seem to see so much manic behavoir. the thing to remember is what she has accomplished...a very successful business from scratch, a loving marriage for almost 20 years and a very sweet well adjustd daughter. Yes she is socially akward but she realizes this and doesn't make excuses. For that I admire her.
Hulali If she weren't demanding others to treat her with respect and tact, then treating others the way that she does, would be a bit "easier" to overlook somewhat. But as we've taught our kids from the time they were little, The Golden Rule and The Law of Reciprocity are there for a very good reason. Honesty does NOT go hand in hand with things like brutality, offensiveness, tactlessness and boorishness. If we mess up, and we will, and offend someone, we need to be grown up about it, own it, learn from it, apologize and try our hardest not to do it again. We must realize we are not perfect and must be willing to admit that we are always going to be works in progress. If we blame everyone for OUR mistakes, that would only mean that we are self-absorbed, we refuse to grow up and be responsible for our own actions. Making excuses such as "It's just the way I am", will eventually drive everyone away and we will be alone. That is a sad truth that can be easily avoided.
I think she does realize her faults and is trying. She just speaks without thinking. She is brutally honest and expects others to be the same way. The problem is that most people avoid confrontation that is hurtful to others.
Hulali I disagree, Yes I do think she speaks what is on her mind...but I don't think she cares anything about what anything about what others think.
Hulali Thats the way I see Ramona as well. The tension between her and Heather started right out of the box when Ramona went to introduce herself and talk about their careers. But, instead of Heather saying one nice thing, she back bites Ramona about her advertising. Heather, NOT EVERYONE BUYS @ TOP $$$. Ramona put herself in a community sale paper to reach all levels. If you were in banking you would get fined for RED LINING. Ramona came with good intentions and talk about kids or anything. And Heather called her names and belittled her. Ramona is unfiltered. But, she has everything every one of those ladies might want one or all she has accomplished. I ADMIRE RAMONA!
So tired of seeing a grown woman having her temper tantrums. Just stop already. Ramona needs to go. She brings nothing to this show, except bring it down.
Really - your husband is just as rude as you are.....and in reality - you both deserve a bit of 'in your face' thrown back at you since you seem to think others feelings don't ever matter.....doesn't feel so good when the shoe is on the other foot does it? Mario didn't like someone hurting you - but you seem to be able to do it to everyone else.....YOU BOTH ARE RUDE.....so when it turns back on you then you are all offended.....take it as a lesson - treat OTHERS THE WAY YOU'D LIKE TO BE TREATED.....THEN MAYBE OTHERS WILL WANT TO INVITE YOU ON TRIPS AND DINNERS......
Really...the way you acted while a guest in Aviva's home was completely unacceptable. I am not sure that you even understand how rude you can be. I am so thankful that I do not anyone in my circle of friends as rude as you are. You need to filter your thoughts and words.
It's so funny. Just watched the previews.....Aviva FINALLY figures you out. Kudos to her for making uo her own mind about you but we all knew she'd see the same thing the rest of us see................................................in time.
PleasePost Aviva talks about how uncomfortable she feels when the conversation is all about Harry! So, Ramona speaks up and says lets NOT talk about Harry. Its RUDE! If Aviva doesn't want help she shouldn't ask for it. Like Ramona says, "Ill say what you are thinking about!" She is a friend that I know would have my backQ!
Ramona, I really do wonder how the edit was done. Is it possible that the outrageousness of Aviva's dad was a catalyst to your crazy dinner behavior. When I was watching the episode I thought maybe you needed protien because all you had had to eat or drink for several hours was alcohol, or that you have a low blood sugar problem. I can see during the dinner everyone could have been getting uncomfortable, except for apparently Aviva who finds her dad amusing!!! Yet, on the beach it really seemed like you wanted to get complimented and flirted with also. Hopefully, you were full aware by the next day, that Sonja had no interest in George, because you would never move in on someone that your best friend was interested in right? Last but not least, how could Aviva be so much more annoyed by you than her father! He is the last person she should think it is okay to show to the world to. Aviva has now lost any kind of high class snobbery effect she could ever pull on me or play up to for anyone else, since we've all met George. Someone mentioned that manners is more valuable than money, well that goes for George and Aviva for her loss of propriety is introducing him to us! Although I have grown to like you Ramona, the edit and episode didn't come out good for you!
Well said. However, I do not Aviva at all because she flip flops back and forth between all the women. She talks to all the women about each other behind their backs and it will end up biting her in the butt when the reunion pops around. And she really doesn't add anything to the show. I'm not sure she will not be around for the new season.
OMG! Seriously!?! Anyone thinks it is at all normal not to understand at least when to stop when you are making someone feel self conscious and mortified? Ok to take over the hosts dinner? Ok to completely shut down a conversation among adults rather than just politely back out of it? It was horrifying to watch period. Talk about no filter whatsoever....good lord! And yet it had to be pointed out to Ramona that Luann was trying to make a fool of her. Think about that and hope your head doesn't explode.
mm811hey what is up with the dresses she wears they kind of look the same but she has a red, blue, white and maybe pink ?
Ramona doesn't realize how she looks to others! She makes a fool of herself, she doesn't need anyone to do it for her. She's not the brightest bulb in the package. Heather tries to be honest but Ramona can't shut her mouth long enough to to listen to anyone!
@jld52 @Didabr Love it....because she is not looking in the eyes of the people she is talking to so you know she is not to be trusted! I so agree with everyone on here! No more Ramona!! SHE NEEDS TO GO! Ramona doesn't pay attention to anyone either that is why she is so UNFILTERED!!! That is a nice way of putting it!!,
@jld52 And yet she has the benefit of seeing her actions on tv over and over and comments from people who actually try to help! Yep! Not the brightest blob in the shop! Lol
I agree except for the fact that I think Ramona is very intelligent. just socially inappropriate
Goodness Ramona when are you going to stop being so selfish. You continually say nasty mean things to others and about them behind their backs and you don't seem to care how your words affect others but you hate it when anyone says something about you. You are a very rude inconsiderate guest always thinking you know best but you should learn about manners and how to behave in someone else's house. I doubt by now you have any real friends and I really don't know how Mario puts up with you, but maybe he doesn't and all is not as it seems in the Singer household?
Charlie1984 i completely agree with everything you just said! the funny thing is at the beginning of this week's episode i was JUST thinking HOW does Mario put up with her?? Could he possibly think she's as hilarious and fabulous as the handful of people on this blog??? or is it like you said, not all is as it seems at Chez Singer??
Ramona, you are too much on other people's business. Sit back and relax, and for you to give orders on someone else's house was the end for me. Get off people's back please.
Ramona, I think you're wonderful! It''s a shame Aveva didn't appreciate you were trying to protect her. You, like me, go on missions, thinking we are fixing things and unfotunately, this quite often, has the opposite effect!
Thank you you for helping Sonja to get on the show. My heart goes out to her and the hardships she is going through. I cannot stand people with money use it to hold on to it, especially men in divorces. Sonja's ex is low life pond scum!!
catherinefriemel.kennedy A grown woman who's been dealing with a leg injury since age 6 doesn't need "protection." Nothing needed "fixing." Do you realize how insulting and condescending it is to constantly tell someone that she isn't competent enough to run her own life?
Ramona, have you ever thought that Aviva wears such a realistic prosthesis so that it can "pass" as a real leg, and people won't call attention to it? Do you ever stop to think that perhaps she doesn't want to be the poster woman for amputation 24/7? By just living her life, she's showing us what she's capable of. She doesn't need you to screech about it every 5 minutes. Sometimes, silence is golden.
I'm glad you explained what seemed like overly concern regarding Aviva's leg. It's a shame she didn't feel it was appropriate for her to tell us the WHOLE story. Take it as a lesson learned...NEVER mention it again. If she frets about it, let her deal with it on her own then too. Aviva should have given her father as much criticism & as your hostess should have told him to take a cold shower!
Ramona, You keep saying how Aviva was freaking out, how she was worried and concerned. I didn't see all that. You were the one freaking out. It was her leg. She should know what she wants to do with it. You say that you're not afraid to say what others think or whatever, but everything doesn't need to be said, whether anybody is afraid to say it or not. You're out of control.
Ramona, Ramona, Ramona.....I have always liked you. You are a one-of-a-kind in a world of corporate sameness....very rare in this day and age. I can see you're trying to learn from past clashes...in greeting Heather in a cordial way. Now you need to learn how to be a good house guest. You don't need to say everything that pops into your head....it comes off as arrogance and ignorance. To go into a beautiful home and tell the owner that it's good to buy cheap and sell high is AWFUL.
I'm team Ramona all the way and understand what you say and do is coming from a good place. You need to learn how to take a back-seat and be a good guest. It's not always all about you.
I too was concerned about Aviva's prosthetic leg getting saturated and her drowning; so I understood that part. I congradulate you for stopping the conversation about Harry. But I didn't understand why you had to go and ask them to serve the entree immediately; that's
the Hostess' job. Oh Ramona! Calm down Ramona.
hannah79A grown intllaagent Tall smart women who grew up w/a prostedic knows her limits.We know what we can do & not do. Drowning in a hot tub come on she is not 5 years .Stay out of her life. Ramona thinks she knows everthing , look in the mirroror & take care of yourself
I don;t care what those dufuses say, Ramona - You're my favorite - you & Sonja. I am really not liking these new broads... they are so stuck up, annoying and boring - especially Heather - what a BOORISH person - almost inhuman. Stay yourself but be polite...
ETM Ramona is still my favorite too. I Can't stand the other three ladies especially Heather. I think the show is boring now also. I hope they all only last one season. It's a shame, this show was always my favorite, and now it sucks.
I have to agree with Aviva that you're too much to handle. I know from watching you in that scene that you weren't trying to be mean or controlling but protective, and now that you explained what she had told you before this scene, it's obvious you were coming from a good place.
A lot of people call you crazy, but even behind all that craziness there's a big genuine heart ;)
SaraJan *Perhaps* Aviva was "freaking out" about not having brought her swim leg, but have we ever seen Aviva freak out much? Consider the source: I, for one, don't trust Ramona's version of what happened.
