In a recent interview with People, Dorinda and Ramona were asked if they missed certain cast members on the show. Of Carole Radziwill, Dorinda said, “I miss Carole. I’m still close to Carole.” It was a bond between the two that was forged over the loss of their husbands.
Dorinda added, “It was right for Carole. You know, when it’s right, it’s right. And I think she has moved on and is happy. And we’ll all be there at some point. I’m going to get that call from Andy [Cohen]one day, ‘we’ve had enough of you.’ And I’ll say, ‘Thanks for the ride.’” Hopefully, Dorinda will have a Tyler Perry quote on hand for comfort.
When asked about Aviva Drescher and Alex McCord, Ramona sidestepped the question with uncharacteristic discretion. Ramona said, “We’re a new show. You gotta go on with the new. Just like I could never go back with my husband. You can’t go back with the old cast. New people, keep it moving.”
What about Jill? Ramona said, “I think it’s great for Jill to come on as guest, you know, organically, because she’s friends with us. But, I don’t really see her coming on as a full-time cast member.” When asked if Ramona thought the other cast members would agree, Ramona said, “I do.” Dorinda chimed in, “Jill knows what she’s doing.” Does she, though?
After, Ramona agreed with herself adding, “She [Jill] has a full life.” Then Ramona said that appearing on the show was like “making a deal with the devil.” Ramona ought to know. Nevertheless, it seems just like the kind of deal Jill wants to make. Desperately.
