It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. For Ramona Singer, season nine of The Real Housewives Of New York was surely the most dramatic of times. Now that she’s had a chance to reflect on the season, the three-part reunion, and viewer feedback, Ramona says she sees it all in a new light. And she opens up about the personal turmoil her divorce from Mario Singer threw her into, which affected her in ways we might not have seen.
Ramona’s latest blog is about as introspective as I’ve ever seen her, which is interesting. Is she feeling humbled by watching herself on TV, or is she in damage control? Either way, she opens up about her feelings on the season and what contributed to her actions. “To say I had a difficult season on RHONY is an understatement,” she begins. “As I watched back over the past few months, seeing myself has given me the opportunity to reflect and face the truth. The bottom line is, I behaved poorly.”
Before discussing that St. Patrick’s Day miracle, Meghan celebrates the idea of throwing herself back into the modeling world, even if it is somewhat of a pipe dream. She jokes, “It’s fun to (pretend to) be a model sometimes and for me, it’s so important for my mental health to work and play outside the home.”
Stephanie describes her relief at starting anew with Brandi and her total lack of surprise that LeeAnne Locken is up to her old tricks. But first, she expresses gratitude to the viewers for their virtual love. “Thank you all again for another week of kindness and support! Your out pour of support and encouraging messages truly do make a huge difference while going through this experience! If I could reach through the computer screen and give you all a big hug, believe me, I would!”
It’s time to check out the reality TV listings and plan your week.
This week brings us part three of the Real Housewives of New York reunion. “The reunion takes a turn when Bethenny questions the sincerity of Ramona’s tearful apology,” shares Bravo. “In the hot seat Ramona’s forced to address the accusations she made against Bethenny this season.”
In her blog this week, Meghan calls Peggy out for sticking her nose into business she knows nothing about, namely anything involving Vicki Gunvalson. Before Meghan breaks that situation down, she takes some time to celebrate positive ventures, including her “personal care line” called The King Collection, by K.Hall Designs. “I’m so passionate about my new collection and all of my work endeavors, so I know exactly how Shannon feels when she is talking about opening up a restaurant. She’s so excited to finally be living out her dream and I can’t wait to see the final outcome!”
Just in case you were wondering, Brittany Cartwright is still making sandwiches for Jax Taylor, ya’ll! Despite rumors that the Vanderpump Rules stars had broken up post-filming of their spinoff, they’re confirming otherwise. And I guess that’s a good thing, because their new show, Vanderpump Rules: Jax And Brittany Take Kentucky, looks to hinge on the Big Question: i.e., will lifetime bachelor, Jax Taylor, propose?
In a recent interview, Jax reassured viewers that despite their engagement status remaining a mystery, he and Brittany are definitely not broken up. “You definitely can (put the kibosh on that rumor),” he said. “Don’t read those [blogs]!”
With enormous life changes this year, Jeff says the viewers are in for a different kind of season. He does, however, admit that his crusty old ways aren’t entirely gone. (For example, preview clips show Vanina Alfaro being brought to tears by yet another one of Jeff’s tirades.) But daily life has changed for Jeff. Besides the laundry, diapers, and toys, he’s still getting used to something else – someone else – needing his attention besides work.
