If you didn't catch last week's Real Housewives of New York City, Carole Radziwill breaks it down for you in her latest Bravo blog. She touches on the amazing array of nicknames the girls have for Ramona Singer, the hilarious — and ridiculous — questions that Ramona thought were appropriate for Carole to ask prospective interns and the funeral that was held for Sonja's dog, Millou.
Heather Thomson and LuAnn DeLesseps met up with Kristen Taekman following her sit-down with Ramona over her tendency to throw wine and wine glasses at her. What better way to get the goods than straight from Kristen. Although Carole wasn't there, she was more than happy to share her opinions on having a sit-down with Ramona.

"After a quick outfit change, Kristen meets the girls at Wink and here's my favorite line again: Who does that? Housewives do it, that's who. And no one does it better. There's nothing more riveting than a contractually obligated Housewife sit-down. I thought the flowers were a nice touch. But Ramona, if you ever need to send me flowers (I hope you don't), I like pink peonies."
But the best thing about the entire scene at the store — the variety of nicknames the girls have for Ramona and her ridiculous behavior.
"RamonaMonster, StingerSinger, Pinotpolar, Ramonacoaster, Crazy Eyes. Ramonify the House."
I am not sure I had ever heard 'Ramonamonster' and I LOVE IT!
On to Carole's search for a new assistant. Despite what Aviva Drescher thinks, Carole is a real writer. She even mentions that her career isn't that exciting to film so "Next season, each time I have a business meeting or wild writing binge, I'll show up with camel toe or make my tooth fall out so I can be sure it gets on the show. It used to be enough to just be drunk. Now body parts have to fall. Literally."
Lastly, at Sonja's doggy funeral for her dog Millou, the ladies showed up dressed to the nines in black with hats. They looked like they could have been going to any high society New York funeral. Which btw — didn't that dog die almost a year ago?? What was the hold up? Anyway, Carole gives us the lowdown.
"We all look amazing, don’t you think? I love a good veil. As Grandma Millie used to say, Italians do it better. Especially funerals."
"Sonja asked me to write a eulogy for the memorial. Since I had never met Millou I had to do some research. There was a long profile of Millou in AnimalFair magazine, which is where I found out he was gay."
"I don't know why we weren't arrested. Drinking in public and throwing ashes into the East River? I looked it up. Both of these are misdemeanors, subject to prison time and fines. I have a feeling that Sonja and her cadre of interns failed to notify the EPA, which you are required to do when spreading ashes in public waterways. And drinking in public was outlawed in 1979. We were outlaws! "The Gang That Couldn't Drink Straight." Had we been caught we would have spent five days in prison. Can you imagine that? The six of us sharing a prison cell fighting over who gets the corner bunk, and whether to watch Judge Judy or Ellen during television time? Orange is the New Black, with Hats!"
No offense, but I am not sure any of these ladies are made out for prison!
TELL US! WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE BEST NICKNAME FOR RAMONA? DO YOU THINK THE LADIES WOULD LAST IN PRISON — ALA ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK?
