Ramona Singer Apologizes For Saying Dennis Shields Was “Not Smart” Because “He Was On Drugs”

During the last episode of Real Housewives of New York, Sonja Morgan pleaded with the blondes to have some compassion for Bethenny Frankel and Luann de Lesseps. Bethenny was reeling from Dennis Shields’ death just three weeks before. Luann was fresh out from her second rehab stint.  As much as Sonja tried, Ramona Singer and Dorinda Medley just weren’t having it. In one of those conversations, Sonja remarked that Dennis was a smart guy.

Even though the conversation wasn’t even about the recently departed Dennis, Ramona steered it in that direction. She actually had the nerve to say, “How smart can Dennis be? I mean, he was on drugs.” Really, Ramona? Why would anyone ever say that?

Before the episode even aired, Ramona tried to get ahead of the backlash. She tweeted out an apology and she also posted the same words on her Instagram Story. Ramona wrote, “I cringed when I saw what I said about Dennis in tonight’s episode. It definitely wasn’t one of my finer moments. I respected and liked him very much and I sincerely apologize to his family and Bethenny for my thoughtless comments.”

What did Bethenny think when she watched that scene? Did someone tell her about Ramona’s remarks while they were filming the season? If not, she’s going to come for Ramona during the reunion taping. For sure. Bethenny once eviscerated Ramona for not saying hello to her assistant in the elevator. Imagine how deep she’s going to bury Ramona for this remark. Wow, wow, wow, Ramona. Just wow.

The fans are all for the Housewives throwing shade and coming for each other, but this remark was at another level of insulting. Will Ramona’s attempt to save face apology actually make up for this one?
