Heather, Your mothering act when it comes to Carole, is reaching proportions bordering on the ridiculous. Carole is a big girl and can take care of herself. You told Ramona to not get involved in the argument between Aviva and Carole regarding "book gate" but there you are in your need to defend Carole! Stop it! It is very obnoxious!

Was Romona rich when she was a kid?  Most of the women act like they have never had to  do anything for themselves .  Can't unpack their own clothes or anything. Being rich is not always the best education as you can see Aviva, Romana and Soja.  So entitled.

The funny part for me was watching ber classify and de classify a community based on wealth..especially after her admission that the wooded area reminded her of her childhood backyard....it sounded like she was raised in a poor area

Heather - just read your blog, and gosh darn ya Girl, gotta (still) love your honesty and forthrightness, and realness about not being born rich.  You are such a great role model for young woman - once again I stand in ovation.

Ramona looked like a complete idiot when she grabbed the asthma inhaler out of Andy's hand and then tried to spray, then she turned it around and still nothing. Well, hello you need to take the cover off, shake it so that the medicine mixes and then spray. Just ridiculous! And then watching her try to explain why she threw the glass at Kristen and clearly wanted to throw the oar...she is just pathetic! But then when someone starts saying things that she doesn't want to talk about, right away she tries to find a way to shut it down. She needs to go. Watching the upcoming part of the reunion when Andy asks about her marriage and then she has the nerve to ask Andy "well how's your sex life, who are you sleeping with tonight?" And Andy's response is "I don't know I'll answer when I'm on a reality TV show." Who is she to talk to him like that? He can make life easy or hard for you on the show, so I think she needs to calm it down a bit! SHE CAN DISH IT BUT SHE CAN'T TAKE IT!!

Ramona jabs and runs.  She can certainly dish it out but can not, will not take it.  I love it the way Andy gave it back to her when he asked about her husband's infidelity and she told him to "stop it, Andy!"  She thought she was smart to ask him about his private life as if to show him that he wouldn't like being asked.  He told her he would tell her if he was ever in a reality show.  Ramona, I hope you are aware just how fake and hypocritical you look to the viewers.

If the Berkshires aren't Ramona's cup of tea, that's fine. But she shouldn't assume that people vacation there because they can't afford to be anywhere else! Her bringing along real estate comps was just weird, as if she needed "proof" that the Berskhires would fail to meet her standards. Everyone likes different vacation vibes. Heather grew up nearby; her heart is there. I can see why her kids would enjoy spending time there. The Berkshires definitely have some wealth presence, but I don't think there's a pressure for people to keep up with the Joneses or to flaunt it, either.

Hamptons/Berkshires - People who buy homes in either place as a place to enjoy their families, friends and relax Good for them... If they buy to be part of the in Class (Ramona) how sad for them, as I doubt they know what happiness is. And it shows in Ramona's behavior. IMO

@withak I didn't see Heather "mothering" Carole. Perhaps sticking up for her, as Ramona does with Sonja. Carole is an intelligent, strong, independent woman and I'd bet she doesn't feel that Heather is mothering her.

@my2cents2755 To be fair, out-of-touch Ramona is spending her own money.  She has a few businesses and her husband has his business.  That said, she is a pompous, stuck up, extremely rude and a mean person.  Did I mention she is rude?  LOL

@DangleParticiple In The Berkshires pressure of "The Joneses" doesn't come from New York. It comes from Boston. What the Hamptons, represent to New York,  The Cape represents to wealthy Bostonians. Per capita income and cost per acre, they are apples and oranges. As you said, different vibe. Both are culturally significant but the preference for Boston money is not in Berkshire County...... sadly.

@ShamefullBehavior I agree with this. I saw her on Bethenny (rerun) this morning... and she's so phoney. All she ever thinks about is money... money, and mo money. So egotistical...

@ShamefullBehavior I am a New Yorker, born and raised and the Hamptons are very OVERPRICED, especially in the summer which is when everyone is there. Ramona just likes to brag and she thinks that the world revolves around her life in the Hamptons. Frankly, I am so tired of hearing her complain this season more than ever, especially when they all went to the Berkshires. Between all of the crap with the A/C, or lack thereof, being somewhere that reminded her of her childhood and then to very conveniently call a friend to come and pick her up because she was so "upset" that she had to leave. Yeah right! That same night she was whooping it up in the Hamptons with all of her "friends." I really do hope that if they do return for another season, that she is not a part of the show, because if she is then I will no longer watch! She's just so FAKE, watching her sit there with those eyes and trying to be prim and proper when we all know that she is not. NOT A FAN, OBVIOUSLY!! Just to let everyone know that all New Yorkers are NOT like Ramona, the majority of us are very "REAL" people.

Agreed. I am a NYer and I know many people who have second homes in Connecticut and LBI, New Jersey. Ramona thinks the worlds second home purchases revolves around her choice. To be honest with you the Hampton's are great just not from Memorial Day to Labor Day. It's filled with tourists over priced shops and restsraunts that are grossly over priced during season. I love the Hampton's it's beautiful. We just choose not go where the rest of the city goes to sit in traffic and hope to get a dinner reservation. Love it off-season.
