Every time Elyse Slaine pops up on Real Housewives of New York, my mind immediately shifts to the scene in Mean Girls when Damian yells “she doesn’t even go here!” at the all-girls assembly. We never got any introduction to Elyse. We have no idea who she even is. She’s just popping up at every group event with the label “Ramona’s friend” under her name.
However, Ramona Singer is publicly disassociating with her friend. Or at least that is how it came across in a recent interview when she was asked about Elyse. Nevertheless, Ramona’s open actually does seem to line up with what a lot of fans are thinking. Just like many of us, Ramona does not seem to get why Elyse is even filming.
During an interview with People Now, Ramona was asked to share what she thinks Elyse brings to the mix. Since Elyse is labeled as Ramona’s friend, I expected Ramona to say some nice things about her. However, that is not what happened.

Instead, Ramona said, “I don’t think she really brings anything with the mix. I think you can see she doesn’t really fit in.” I mean, she’s not wrong.
Ramona continued, “I didn’t know really what to think. I just thought ‘OK, we always love to add new people as a possible friend.’ She didn’t even make it as a friend. Bravo doesn’t even call her a friend. ” Damn, that’s cold. But, again, Ramona is not wrong. Elyse’s presence just seems so random an unofficial.

Ramona concluded, “She was just.. Missy Poole had more personality than Elyse. In case you forgot, Missy Poole is Tom D’Agostino’s ex that Ramona loves to bring around in an effort to get a rise of Luann de Lesseps. She has never had an official role on the show, despite Ramona’s many attempts to cast her.
