If you thought part 1 of the Real Housewives of New York City reunion was dramatic
and draining, you ain’t seen nothing yet!
In a new preview clip released by Bravo, things get even more intense between the housewives. The drama kicks off when Andy Cohen reads part of Jill Zarin’s blog in which she strongly insinuates her costar Ramona Singer has a drinking problem. Ramona fires back by alleging Jill has been to AA (Alcoholics Anonymous).
In the clip below, Andy asks Ramona if she has a drinking problem. “I only have a problem because of the way it’s being shown. I don’t drink any more or less than I have in the past 4 years. We film at parties, social events, I don’t have a problem,” says Ramona, who has always remained adamant that she was simply trying to promote her pinot line on the show.
As Ramona continues to talk, Jill can be heard making snide remarks. Andy then goes on to read the statement from Jill’s blog in which she pretty much says Ramona drinks in an unhealthy manner, is leading a bad example for her daughter and accuses her of lying about how much she drinks, stating she can go back to footage from the show and count the number of times Ramona drank without food. Jill finishes off her blog by stating Ramona is “lying to herself.”
Ramona’s retort is pretty shocking. “You know what Jill, I really respect you. I think you are a fabulous woman. I know at times you had problems. You went to AA, you had alcoholic problems. Just because you did doesn’t mean I do,” says Ramona.
WOW. We will have to wait until Monday night, when part II airs on Bravo, to see how Jill responds to that. Some are now saying this might explain why Jill seems to always stay away from alcohol on the show, mostly sticking to diet coke during social occasions. Some are also saying Jill seemed to use some AA/12-step talk during this season.
My take is had Ramona made this revelation about anyone else on the show, I would probably have some sympathy but since it’s Jill… I will also add that it was very unwise of Jill to repeatedly insinuate Ramona had a drinking problem if she indeed does have this skeleton in her closet. The preview clip is below. The reunion airs Monday at 10/9c.
