Rumors are swirling that the Real Housewives of New York City's wine glass throw meltdown was not as bad as it looked/sounded on TV. I don't think that it would come as a surprise to anyone to know that parts of reality TV are edited for dramatic effect. Now we have sources saying that the wine glass throw heard round the world was not as bad as it appeared.
A source tells Tom Murro, "Bravo adds sound effects to things. The production company added the loud sound of shattered glass when it was PLASTIC NOT GLASS that was thrown by Ramona at Kristen. And that she was not cut, but underneath her lip was only slightly bruised from the plastic glass." Very interesting….
After Ramona bailed on the Berkshires amid a pack of fibs and phony panic attacks, Heather Thomson is calling Ramona out! Heather titles her Bravo blog, "I'm Disappointed In Ramona" and goes through the reasons why Ramona's actions were out-of-line.
"So, thankfully Kristen [Taekman] didn't need stitches — just an ice pack and some TLC, which she is not getting from Ramona. Ramona agreed she was out-of-line and would apologize, but ohhh man it didn't go over as well as one would have liked. But that was probably because Ramona took the opportunity to make the story about herself and play the victim again," Heather writes.
After assaulting Kristen Taekman with a wine glass to the face, Ramona blamed Kristen for "throwing water on her" (fancy word for splashing), faked a panic attack and fled to the Hamptons where the miracle that is the iPhone caught her in the act of partying. Um… lies by Bravo?
A source tells Radar that Ramona really wanted to leave the Berkshires because she wanted to catch philandering hubby Mario Singer in the act of philandering with mistress Kasey Dexter. Apparently the low-down lovebirds carried out many of their rendezvous in the Hamptons!
Just a little background if you have been living under a rock. The Real Housewives of New York City made the trek to Heather Thomson's retreat in the Berkshire. Drama started early when Kristen Taekman splashed Ramona Singer with a little water, in turn Ramona threw wine on her — for the second time in two episodes — followed by chucking the glass at her face. Then after a sort-of apology, Ramona used her childhood trauma to flee the vacation. Even though she had already been filmed packing and calling a friend for a ride to the Hamptons before her 'breakdown' that made her want to leave. Classy!
Kristen is still just as riled up watching the events unfold in the Berkshires as she was living them. She begins her Bravo blog, Where do I start? Who knew Lu[Ann deLesseps] was a nurse? Thank goodness for Lu. I have to say I felt a lot better knowing her credentials. Ramona kept saying it was not her intention to hit/cut me with a wine glass…I'm curious what exactly was your intention when you threw that glass at my face–it was much more than a knee-jerk reaction? I would LOVE to know. Almost a year later, I am still wondering???"
Was anyone else confused by Ramona Singer'sbehavior last night on the Real Housewives of New York City? First she gives Kristen Taekman a half-ass apology for throwing a wine glass at her face. Then the next morning she is caught packing by Carole Radziwill, right after she calls her friend to come and get her in the Berkshires. Then on a hike through the woods, she is so traumatized over some leaves and fallen trees that she has to leave the Berkshires immediately, without even saying good-bye to her bestie, Sonja Morgan.
After all these years on camera did she not think that we could all see her calling her friend to come and get her long before her traumatizing hike? I have long since given up on trying to explain Ramona Singer and her bad behavior. But in her latest Bravo blog, she tries to justify her actions….
