Ramona Singer

Even though Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer is aging in reverse, she’s not invincible. Sadly the RHONY OG has been diagnosed with Lyme Disease, just like her sister had been a couple of years ago.

Thankfully, Ramona’s doctor caught this early on, and the prognosis is optimistic.

Ramona talked about the diagnosis in a recent interview with E! News. It started around Valentine’s Day, when Ramona had congestion and a slight fever. A friend referred Ramona to an internist, who ordered a full blood panel. The results revealed that Ramona does have Lyme disease.

Currently, Ramona is taking an antibiotic and she will go in for testing again next month.

Ramona told E! News, “You must get tested once a year, especially if you’re in an area where there are deer.” Unfortunately, it seems like Ramona was infected by a tick bite in the Hamptons, where she has a home, not near the highway, of course. We all know how much Ramona hates real estate near the highway.

Ramona told the publication, “But, we caught it early and I’m very lucky and very blessed.” She has also adopted an alkaline diet to increase her immune function.

Ramona shared that her doctor told her “You’re a strong woman, very healthy and you can easily live to 95.” And she had the most Ramona response possible. Ramona revealed,  “I told him I want to live to 100.” And I bet she will, but in Ramona’s eyes, she is eternally “ageless,” of course.
