Doing the reunion is a tiring day. I filmed it while I was sick and the next day I found out I had vertigo and an inner ear virus. It took me almost three weeks to recover!!!
Carole was a very interesting addition to RHONY. She is very downtown, peace-love-and-flower-power. Sometimes though, you need to take a stand. To allow and enable Aviva and George’s behavior and not call them on it at her book party; to not comment about Reid's very rude comment about overweight women gone wild; to not take control as a hostess in St Barth’s and try to calm and rectify the situation...
I understand LuAnn’s point about Carole. When filming, Carol was Zen-like and, by her own admission on the reunion, passive and just observed when interacting with all of us. It surprised me that in Carole’s interviews she could be quite snarky in her comments about everyone. Who knew this was really what she was thinking? I too would rather have someone tell me to my face. Carole said she says nothing mean or malicious behind our backs in her interviews, but I'm not buying that. Doesn't she see what she says?
Ramona, To bad you always have to be right. Your funny but when you attacked Heather (in your entry hall of your home and your husband jumped in as well) It was just one of many rude attacks you STARTED. You never let anyone get a word in edge wise. You sounded crazy on the reunion saying you had never, ever, ever been attacked by anyone like Aviva. I think you pulled another unwelcome matt on Aviva when her husband came to stay in the vacation house. You were so loud and rude with Sonja at Heathers event as well. I think you need to be more forgiving since everyone you have come in contact with ends up forgiving you. Maybe your a little jealous of Aviva?
Ramona, on the outside you are a very attractive woman. Unfortunately, you have a very ugly personality. Do you not see how rude you are to others? Not to mention how loud, obnoxious and overbearing you are most of the times? I'm not sure if it's because of the drinking or what but you need to tone it down because you act a bit cray cray!
Ramona, please do your friend a favor and help Sonya start her line of products and shut Heather up in the process.
You made yourself look guilty by attacking Andy about the drinking question. If you would have laughed it off or answered truthfully and let it go, it would have been over
You are so tiring and rude. The Sonja and Ramona friendship is destructive especially for Sonja. I didn't like Aviva much but did agree with what she said to you in regards to you feeling superior to Sonja. You may be getting too old for that color blue, sorry girl!
Ramona Ramona Ramona, I think you just like to argue. They must pay you extra to stir up drama on the show. You started out mean to Heather and then turned on Aviva. Last year it was Luann the year before that it was Jill !!!!! I think you are a very insecure person that wants to portray security in yourself but it just flips back to make you look even more insecure. You are also the one that stirred the pot for Heather and Sonja when Heather was helping Sonja FOR FREE. I get so tired of your yelling on the show, I usually mute you when you do it. Also the way you attack some one verbally then walk away and refuse to talk about it anymore just shows how closed minded and childish you can be.
WHITE TRASH is the name of this candy that I make every year for Christmas. It's quick and in light of Aviva's comment I thought you would enjoy.
2 c. cheerios 2 c. Rice Chex 2 c. Corn Chex 1 c. pretzel sticks 1 lb. M & M's 1 lb. almond bark or white chocolate
Mix first five ingredients in large bowl. Melt almond bark. Pour over dry ingredients. Mix well. Pour out on wax paper and let set. When cool, break up into pieces.
You yelling "CALM DOOOWN! TAKE A XANAXX!!" was low, even for you. And shame on your for eye-rolling and looking bored when Aviva was recounting her childhood accident. I am no fan of Aviva, but damn, that was beyond rude.
First let me say that you have missed your calling.... you look absolutely amazing and you should be sharing your secret(s) w/the rest of us!!!! Secondly, I love your honesty, but perhaps you should think before you fire... it's painful to watch the fallout sometimes. And lastly, I enjoy how authentic you are on the show! Until next season...all the best!
Dearest sweetest Ramona,
You get prettier every year. I admire your abiliry to drink and never get drunk I had a hugh problem myself. Look, a person who does not harm them selves or others is not an alcohl.ic problem...maybe annoying but other wise should not be valid diagnosis. You handled yourself very well at the reunion and I had this desire to box Adiva's head. I hope you never lower your gaurd around her. She turns on a dime.
Also on a different note, slinky Jill is all over the web and wants to come back I would reather have that snarky Diva again instead of Jill, I am so sick of her.
Rest up...see you next year.
Ramona, Shut Up! Although sometimes I do not think your think before you say something you have this season come off as phony! And a bit to much! Have some empathy if understand or you do not simple empathy is character simply put! Stop being mean and fake this season for some reason. We get your mad at Aviva but you were very phony at the reunion! Leave Aviva alone no one want's money or material things. No one want to be without a leg and have money! Most would want to be poor and have the leg! So shut up! Some times your dumb mouth gets in your way. Carol did not get on the blogs and say negative things about the others as you did. Go back to the ofl Ramona no fakeness!
Love you Ramona! BRAVO needs to send Aviva where they sent Jill Z....packing! Aviva has to many issues and is a such a drag to the show. UGHHHH
Keep your head high!
Ramona, Why do you always say mean things to people, but when they try to speak back you either yell over them or walk away? Just curious.
How does Ramona's husband continue to defend her, how do you stand behind someone that is drunk the majority of the time and has had a problem with everyone. The story Sonya told about Ramona steeling her dress told me everything I need to know about Ramona...I don't understand why she is constantly given a pass by everyone
Ramona, leave Aviva alone, move on and stop getting your husband to fight your fights. You talk behind others backs and when people do say something to you . You try and lie your way out of it. enough. I agree clam down take a pill . I really hope it's really just a acted for TV but, if not maybe you could have show mean girls of New York with Sonja . The other woman are so kind and don't need the two faced judgemental hate.
Get over Aviva, move on, but first check YOUR BEHAVIOR with others. Don't be like a fly by and drop nasty comments then run like a coward not facing what you might hear back. Things like you are a loud obnoxious individual who is opinionated and judgemental, yes judgemental of others before you even get to know them. Don't critisize others for speaking over them, you do that yourself ALL THE TIME. Listen for once and "calm down and take a pill" or 2 or dring or 2 like you do. I hate watching you much of the time, liked you better last season.
ramona.. please, just drop the aviva thing. she owned up to her reasons for acquiring all these anxieties.... just end it now. she did apologize, and i feel you really wishes she never got so hurt and upset and said things she did not mean. i do believe she feels terrible, about how it made you feel and about how it made her look. but you harping on it, and not letting it go, makes you look worse. just drop it. when ried said the comment about over weight girls gone wild... he didnt mean it as you guys are over weight, he just meant you weighed more than a typical GGW girl... but you were just as wild. understand now? he was also defending his wife, he too was hurt that you made her hurt so badly.. and you dont see how aviva may express her feelings to her husband.. perhaps it upset her a lot more than you know, perhaps she cried about the fact that her girlfriends did not give her the proper welcome and express how proud they were of her conquering her fear... and if she were to have cried in front of ried.. of course he wouldnt want that for her, so.. when you lash our at her, ried feels the need to lash back too. he loves his wife, and he hates whatever is making you guys be rude to her. he hates, that she feels so upset about a friendship that she thought was real.. when clearly, it must not have been. you both need to apologize and learn to forgive and learn to express real emotions not fake social hoopla. be more like george and heather. they are real. real honest. be happy and be real. the end.
Ramona I was never really a fan because you used to go off the deep end so much, but this year I wish you would have gone off on Aviva as only you can. This crazy woman attacked you in so many ways and you held back on her, why? You should have let her crazy behind have it. Also I am glad you made up with Heather please don't let Sonja's craziness with her business start a fight between you two anymore. See you next season Ramona!
Love you Ramona! You tend to be a bit unfiltered, but you are genuine. Ignore A-Diva. I hope she is kicked off the show or gets some serious mental help.
Ramona just stay true to who you are and be proud of all that you have, family, friends and what seems to be a pretty great life. Rise above the pettiness and walk with your head held high knowing that this season is over and hopefully you wont have to see certain people any time soon. Good luck.
Romona, I truly believe you are the real deal. You speak the truth, love it or not!!! I enjoy when your and your side kick give your side of the story (truth). I thought your vacation in St. Barts was great. When one is on vacation, vacation the way you want to. Those who are "stick in the muds" stay home. My fav this year....Aviva is a buzz kill! Love your honesty.
Aviva was just speaking the truth about the manner to which you and Sonja behave. I find you to be extremely immature, to say the least. Your manners are atrocious. Frankly, I was disappointed that Aviva was expecting more from the both of you.
did anyone notice at the end of the reunion,ramona said aviva told ramona reed was going to stay in a hotel. if that call really took place, ramona should have stated that while the girls were on vacation. because she ramona didnt, seems to me ramkna lied on the reunion show. ramonas crazy and loved her UNTIL she got caught in a lie
Ramona can dish it but she can't take it, she says nasty comments to everyone but then plays victim when Aviva called it like she saw it, white trash. And Ramona truly is a woman with no class, stirring up trouble between Sonja and Heather at Heather's charity, and then she stands there with a little smile on her face knowing she caused all that drama. I have never liked Ramona and I never will.
I have to agree with you about Aviva. I thought that her apology was only because she was seeing her image was being portrayed in a negative light. I truly believe that she came onto the show with the mission of befriending you and then turning on you for ratings. I think she knew coming onto the show that you were the 'argumentative and confrontational' one so to be relevant on the show she had to argue and be confrontational with you. I hope that one day she can stop being so concerned with what others think and be true and honest with not only herself but you and Sonja as well. Maybe one day you can all be friendly again.
I wish that you understood Carole more. I don't think that anything she said 'behind your back' was malicious or done with mean intent. I think that everyone's issue is more with the fact that she doesn't take the show as seriously as everyone else does and because of that and her laid back attitude she doesn't take a stance on much. I thought that she was very entertaining and I thought that a friendship with her was good for you because I thought that she calmed you down in a sense. She had a calming effect on the people she was around, which was a positive thing!
I really enjoyed watching you this season. I thought that you were very true in everything that you said and I really agreed with you throughout the whole season about Aviva. I really wish that you and Heather would work out your differences and become friends. I think that you have a lot in common and I think that you are both great business women which may be where your issues begin. I think you are both really similar in the business world sense that you have a slight competition with each other. This may not be a bad thing for your friendship in general though. But I do think that you and Heather in St. Barths was great and I only wish it would last for an extended period of time. I also thought that Sonja did put you against each other when it came to the toaster oven shoot. I think you were trying to be protective of your friend to Heather because you were getting a different story from Sonja then Heather was. I can't wait for the rest of the reunion and hopefully next year!!
Ramona I would love to go out and party with you and SonJa---I work so hard and have little time to enjoy life. I think people who work hard should also have time to play hard--when on vacation--let your hair down and release your inner self. I am 61 yrs. old--already went through 30 years of being a manager working with incarcerated teenage youth--I am now in my second stage of my life--I own 100 acres of land and I am trying to start a tree farm--so my down time would only be on a vacation--you go girl--if ever in Columbus, Ohio I would love to go out and let my hair down--drinks, dancing, and laughing--wish I had a friend like SonJa--it would be a hoot and a lot of fun--Love you Girls
CALM DOWN!!!!! ha...I loved that episode....you're a funny girl. Keep it real....love you and Sonya!
I thought you should have apologized to Aviva for throwing her father out..I understand that you and aviva have issues but you shouldn't take that out on her father, it was very disrespectful of you to do so..and he wasn't going to harm you by the way, but you're very dramatic..
Ramona - I agree with you that Aviva is apologizing for the backlash she received for her behavior. I don't think Carole's comments are bad, they're a little tongue in cheek and I like that kind of humor, but not everyone does. But I never took any of comments as mean or judgmental, just humorous. Sonja kind of has that kind of humor too. I'm glad you didn't forgive Aviva because I don't believe she sincere at all.
As a mother, what you should be most ashamed of was your facial expressions and lack of compassion when Aviva was describing her accident as a six year old child. Regardless of how you feel about her now, what happened to her as a little child is unimaginable. You sat there (the camera on you) with your obvious lack of interest and almost annoyance when she was describing it. You are not a nice person. I also have to agree with a good majority of the comments below. You may be a great business woman, but you are classless as a human being. Your loud mouth, your obnoxious comments and constant need to command the attention are at best, a sad look at why you will likely be alone in your latter years.
@talking77 So true...Ramona and Sonja are mean girls but you forgot Aviva... and LuAnn!!! They are mean girls too!!
That's why Aviva and Ramona got along so well in the beginning. Aviva could see they were alike and she wanted another "couple" to hang out with. Remember, Ramona used to act like Aviva and had to have Mario on her arm after she fought with one of the other women. So Ramona has the same INsecurity issues and the ANGER that Aviva has (but not AS badly as Aviva's!!).
Whenever Ramona has a conflict with another woman, she need either a bottle of wine, Mario, or Sonja (her drinking buddy) with her.
And Ramona saying she "Tells it like it is"... or that she "says what others are thinking" just doesn't cut it. That isn't telling it like it is... it's just plain IGNORANT and MEAN!! Sometimes she does it out of ignorance (she's not well educated) or she lashes out in anger... trying to hurt her opponent... like Aviva does. Both go waaay overboard.
@juka aren't you kind and understanding . I hope that you never have anything go wrong in your life and never need anyone help or understanding.
@Whatnow I guess it's true two immature people can't help them selfs it's to bad.
@pjbeaudry I agree, but we may have different reasons for loving the line. Ramona's yelling "Calm dowwwn.. Take a Xanaxxx!" was delightfully ironic. She was the loudest (as usual), and clearly the one who most needed to calm down. Guess all that Pinot isn't doing the trick. Aviva wins, hands down.
@loveallRHW George barged into a charity event demanding an apology for his daughter. He was rude and grabbed Ramona's arm. He wouldn't leave after being asked to do so several times. He is a dirty old man.
@loveallRHW Oh please, he is just as bad as his daughter. He had no business going there in the first place. He had himself a drink, started to chat and of course let everyone know he probably gave the most money. Aviva should have sent Ramona a check period! Finished! He doesn't know his place, he's disrespectful, he should of dropped off the check and left. He's a disgusting old man hitting on women more than half his age!
Ramona you did the right thing!
Ramona was tired of hearing the story and so were the rest of the woman. I have a cousin who lost his leg 30 years ago. He hasn't said anything about it since.
@sfl.mom this is so right on the money !
Wow, I just watched the second part of the Reunion and Aviva is still playing the victim... (as are you, Ramona!) Aviva's been holding this hateful grudge for months now. She's apologizing on the Reunion, but you can see she doesn't mean it. I can't believe that she thinks what she said to Sonja and Ramona back in NY was OK as long as she didn't raise her voice!
Aviva is more of a narcissist than anyone who's been on this show (and that includes Jill and Kelley!)
But Ramona, both you and Aviva are very much alike. That's why you have a love-hate relationship with each other. Aviva's rage and your jealousy run very deep.
I agree that he shouldn't have gone in the first place and i do think that he's very creepy but he meant no harm..Ramona should have taken him to the side and ask him to not get involved and thank ask him to leave quietly..but she had to be dramatic and kick him out in front of everyone..the poor guy was humiliated and he looked so embarassed and hurt..i felt so bad for him..i wish she had treated him with more kindness
I think she protests to much about that drinking problem. Altho Aviva did go on and on and on about her phobias, Ramona and Sonja both should take a look inside before being so snarky.
She tried being nice to him. He didn't get the hint. She had no choice but to have him escorted out.
