Ramona Singer Pinot Grigio

Real Housewives of New York may have done a complete cast over-haul, but that doesn’t mean things are going smoothly while filming season five!

The New York Post is reporting that Bravo is having trouble filming in certain New York hot spots and that some Housewives (ahem… Ramona Singer) are being demanding! Sources report that the producers are “having difficulty” filming in restaurants and other establishments because many locations have “soured” on the series and “are not opening their doors freely for filming.”

“They’re trying to book locations at the last minute…  giving the impression that others are falling through,” said a source associated with the nightlife industry. Of course, a Bravo rep is dispelling the rumors, claiming there have been “no issues” procuring locations.

Meanwhile, it seems wine purveyor Pinot Singer has let her Pinot go to her head – literally! Ramona has allegedly been causing trouble at famed NY restaurants Phillippe and Ciano over her “demands” to serve Ramona Singer Pinot Grigio during filming. “She asked that her wine be there when she ordered dinner. It wasn’t on the list, but she offered to send over a case. But the restaurants refused to accommodate,” an insider revealed. “You know how Ramona is about her pinot.” Um… yes, we certainly do! Reps for the restaurants had no comment, but outspoken housewife Ramona certainly did!

Speaking to Wetpaint Entertainment, Ramona insists the story is completely untrue; denying that she filmed at Phillippe and while dining at Ciano she made no such fuss! “I graciously drank the pinot grigio they offered,” Ramona reports. “Although, I have to say, my Ramona Pinot Grigio is the best!”

“Am I passionate about my pinot grigio? Absolutely! And now that I have my own wine, why wouldn’t I bring a bottle with me? But I always call ahead and ask permission and they usually charge me a bottle fee.” Adding a big ‘take that!’ to the upscale eateries, Ramona claims her wine is carried in other big name restaurants around Manhattan.

In other RHONY news former, fired, relieved of her duties Housewives’ krazy lady Kelly Bensimon is not sitting home crying because the author of the upcoming I Can Make You Hot! has just signed with a big-name Hollywood manager!

Kelly has recently enlisted the services of Larry Rudolph of ReignDeer Entertainment. Larry also manages such high-profile celebrities as Britney Spears and is credited with raising her to superstar levels. I bet Melissa Gorga is jealous! We will definitely be seeing Kelly’s koo-koo on TV again soon, as her rep is revealing she has a new TV show in the works — although that’s all the details for now!

THOUGHTS ON THE RHONY FILMING DRAMA? DO YOU BELIEVE RAMONA IS BEING DIFFICULT OR ARE THE RESTAURANTS SEEKING PUBLICITY? THOUGHTS ON KELLY’S NEW MANAGER AND FUTURE TV PROJECTS?

Former Real Housewives of New York resident cuckoo, Kelly “Kra-Kra” Bensimon is “not sad” to be moving on from her time as the slightly insane, blonde nemesis of Bravo’s reality show.

In her first interview since the announcement that she would no longer be part of RHONY, Kelly talked her feelings about leaving, rambling incoherently telling E!, “You know, nothing lasts forever…I really want to stress that the show isn’t about Kelly Bensimon. It’s about my intersection with different women of New York City.“ And emphasizing that she may have umm… had some difficulties connecting on the show, she states: “It was a really heavy learning curve.”

When asked if she was “sad” about being cut from the cast, she offered a Kelly-nalogy to describe her feelings: “Sad is a big word. When My dog died, I was sad.” Well, I guess that works – after all it’s only a paycheck!

And Kelly, being Kelly, she is focusing on the positive! ‘Cause she’s really, really, ridiculously nice, you guys. “Change is good. In adverse situations—and I’ve dealt with so many adverse situations [on the show]—I’ve always opened the door and came out smiling. Tomorrow is a new day.”

And indeed, tomorrow is a new day for the former model, who claims she has many more television opportunities on the horizon. “I get approached all the time about doing different shows and everyone always has a different angle.” As for what kind of show she is looking for, Kelly reveals: “Whoever gives me the greatest deal that is synonymous with my brand, that’s something I want to do.” However, “this is the time for a bigger and better deal, I’m not going to lie,” she clarifies. Hey, she’s up here; and all the other housewives are down there!

As for Kelly’s former co-star, Ramona Singer; she also has more opportunities on the horizon as the wannabe mogul is scheduled to debut her newest jewelry line on HSN. Ramona explains her inspiration for the line came from her travels across the US. “I was afforded the opportunity to travel all over the country for Ramona Pinot Grigio,” Ramona enthuses, while simultaneously plugging one of her other products.

“Going from New York to Texas to California, I saw so many different jewelry styles and pieces. I tried to incorporate a little of everything into this collection.”

The collection, which is described as affordable, includes rings, earrings, necklaces and pendants starting at $219, and according to Ramona: “These pieces are glamorous, gorgeous and just fun.”

Ramona’s newest HSN venture will debut on Sept 29th from 1-3 pm. Photos of Ramona’s jewelry collection below!

Thoughts on Kelly’s statements about leaving RHONY? Would you watch Kelly on another reality show? Thoughts on Ramona’s newest jewelry line?

The latest episode of the Real Housewives of New York City ended with a dramatic cliffhanger as a fortune teller told Ramona Singer there was another woman in her husband’s life.

And immediately following the airing of the show, Ramona’s costar Countess LuAnn de Lesseps kept it classy by making the following tweet – “The fortune teller was spot on with all of us. It was scary.” See what the Countess did there? A not so subtle dig at Ramona by insinuating the fortune teller’s tale was accurate.

Ramona was however one of the guests on Watch What Happens Live last night, during which she denied her husband Mario Singer is cheating on her. “Well I never take fortune tellers to heart. I know what I have,” she said of Mario.

When informed of the tweet from the Countess, Ramona appeared visibly upset. “Hello, she’s the one who’s cheated left and right on her husband. She’s cheated on him, he’s cheated on her,” said Ramona. “What is she talking about? I never cheated on my husband. He never cheated on me.”

Andy Cohen also asked her the drinking question as many fans of the show this season have wondered if she has a drinking problem, you know, since she’s always shown with a half full glass of wine or flipping out whenever her own Pinot Grigio line is unavailable. Well Ramona also denied having any issues with the alcohol.

“You know what, I don’t have a drinking problem. I definitely have a glass or two at dinner. I drink responsibly. I don’t drink and drive. I wouldn’t have 4 businesses. I wouldn’t have a marriage,” said Ramona. “It’s just unfortunately some of these women are threatened by me or let’s say they just want to attack me for certain reasons.” She later added that she is simply a “social drinker” and that wine is only about 8% alcohol.

I suspect this is a case of Ramona trying too hard to plug her Pinot line on the show gone wrong, but perhaps it could be the editing. Or then again, maybe she just drinks too much. But don’t they all?

Some of our readers are also speculating if the “fortune teller” might have been planted, you know, to stir up drama. This actually never crossed my mind but it could be a possibility. For one, Brad, the guy who planned the party and set up the reading with the fortune teller, made it known he wasn’t a fan of Ramona’s.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE FORTUNE TELLER? DO YOU THINK MARIO IS CHEATING? DO YOU THINK RAMONA HAS A DRINKING PROBLEM? OR IS SHE A VICTIM OF BAD EDITING?
