Ramona Singer Talks Berkshires Blow-Up On The Jenny McCarthy Show; Admits She Regrets Attacking Bethenny Frankel

After she saw herself go bananas on Bethenny Frankel in the Berkshires, Ramona Singer has a bit of ‘splainin to do. And The Real Housewives Of New York star visited The Jenny McCarthy Show on Sirius XM this week to do just that. She dished about her history with Bethenny, why the situation finally came to a head, and how Bethenny’s behind the scenes drama with her “sadistic” and “evil” ex-husband, Jason Hoppy, affected her behavior the entire season.

Ramona began by recounting the incident, and the emotions that led up to it. She explains, “I just lost it on her. I don’t even remember half the things I said. I had to wait to watch it to see. I was walking on eggshells. She wasn’t giving me an inch for months, so I was hoping at the Berkshires we could have some closure. And yeah, I was sh*t ass nervous! I was drinking all day long. Every time I’ve been around Bethenny, it’s nervous energy. I’m not really acting like myself.”

I have no idea who was asking for this, but Jill Zarin returned to Real Housewives of New York last night because she is thirsting for relevancy such close friends with Luann de Lesseps. I’m sure she was hoping for a big comeback, but the OG cast member truly underwhelmed. The only major soundbite she provided was her belief that Ramona Singer is “unhappy.”

I’m not sure what Jill would know about anyone on this show since she isn’t really friends with them, but she had no issue psychoanalyzing her frienemy. Now she is explaining the comment that she solely made for attention and by “explaining,” I mean she’s backtracking from her own words and sucking up to Bethenny Frankel again.

The Real Housewives Of New York Recap: Black Out And Get Out

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s the bitter sour patch kid in Kelly Bensimon’s gummy bear bag! Okay, it’s just Jill Zarin trying to make herself happen again – but still! For long-time Real Housewives Of New York fans, the return of Jill feels kind of epic, if short lived. Also epic is the throw down in the Berkshires, starring Ramona Quimby Age 8 Singer and Bethenny Frankel, who decide to further impose upon Dorinda Medley’s gracious hosting by getting naked and mud wrestling in her parlor. Well, nearly.

Bethenny does pull a spread eagle while screaming at Ramona though, which sort of feels like a low rent Wonder Woman move gone dangerously awry. And Ramona uncorks the long-buried demons of Scary Island as she eviscerates Bethenny like never before. Her motto last night: When they go low, I go Pinot! In essence, the drama this week is served upside down, with a twist of crazy. Just the way the Housewives like it.

I think I can speak for the better part of The Real Housewives of New York viewing audience when I kindly request that they make the Tom D’Agostino storyline just STOP already. (Please? We will do anything – we will watch Sonja Morgan go in for vaginal rejuvenation number two! We will welcome Jill Zarin back with open arms! We will watch that friggin election party again – okay, too far.) Because when it comes to this dusty old Tom story, I have to channel Ramona Singer here and ask, are you kidding me? Are you KIDDING me? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?!

Alas, I regret to inform you that despite our better wishes, the ladies decide it’s still a wise idea to confront Luann de Lesseps about her upcoming nuptials to dear, openly-cheating Tom for the seven hundredth time. In this week’s installment of Are You Sure You Want To Be A Bride, Luann? Ramona leads the charge, with Bethenny Frankel throwing some tears and bizarre begging in for good measure. Then, Ramona and Bethenny go at it head to head in what may be the final round of their friendship. This all occurs after Ramona nearly literally turns herself into the cartoon character version of her former, batsh*t self. So, strap in!

If you watch Real Housewives of New York – which I assume you do, since you’re reading this – you are a well-aware that Ramona Singer never holds back when it comes to sharing her opinions. She has been a cast member on the show since the very beginning and it is for good reason. Love her or hate her, she always provides solid material.

After spending Season 8 as the self-appointed peacemaker, Ramona is back in the thick of the drama this year and she’s ready to take on Bethenny Frankel – which is a tough task for any human being to take on. Ramona isn’t backing down though. And it looks like there’s another explosive season ahead.

I never expected to see Alex McCord back on Bravo, but I was so there for her resurgence on Watch What Happens Live last week. I feel like absence made the heart grow fonder because I didn’t even realize I missed her.

Now everyone wants to know what Alex thinks of her former Real Housewives of New York costars now that she’s had some time away from the crew. After all, she and Simon van Kempen are still together after many seasons of criticism from the cast and viewers while Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer have gone through some pretty public divorces.

Ramona Singer and Alex McCord on WWHL

Alex McCord is a name I haven’t heard in forever, but she made a random return to Watch What Happens Live and America. Not only that, but Ramona Singer was in the club house as well. It was a combination I never expected to see, but I was here for it.

I’m not really sure why Alex did this appearance since it’s clear that she wants nothing to do with the reality TV life, but the dynamic between her and Ramona was pretty interesting to watch.
