Elyse Slaine appeared on Real Housewives of New York listed as a “friend” of Ramona Singer’s. However, she soon realized that “friend” label was far from true. Ramona ditched Elyse, accused her of not being a “girl’s girl,” walked away from her at Leah McSweeney’s party, called her a “black widow,” and she agreed with Andy Cohen at the reunion when he referred to her as the “new Barbara K,” referring to Barbara Kavovit’s fall out with longtime friend Luann de Lesseps.
Normally, being a Friend of the Housewives is a great gig. They get the perks of being on the show without some of the drawbacks. However, Elyse wasn’t on the cast trip to Mexico and she didn’t get to share her side of the story during the reunion. As result, she started spilling the tea on social media.
When a fan tweeted, “Will miss you on the show Elyse. You were a great addition. But i do understand why Ramona was upset. That being said, I recognise you were in a tough position. Would you have done anything differently in hindsight,” Elyse responded with “Viewers did not get see what triggered the fight between me and Ramona. She was vile. What I would have done differently… stopped filming.”
Queens of Bravo shared a clip of Andy referring to Elyse as “the new Barbara K” and Elyse replied, “More lies by Ramona. If I take a page from ‘Mean Girls’ and released a Burn Book about everything Ramona said about each cast member, especially Sonja [Morgan] and Luann… they would never defend her again. I would include everything she has said about her ’50 best friends.'”
One viewer tried to convince Elyse to stick around, as if it’s solely her own choice, tweeting, “You are friends with Leah and Sonja too- forget Ramona. I think it’s natural for you to be on the show! Iconic.” In response, Elyse tweeted, “Sonja didn’t have my back at the reunion though. Very different than what she says to me in a text.”
Then Elyse tweeted, “And Sonja singing a different tune than what she says to me” and she included screenshots of a group text with Sonja and Leah. In those texts, Sonja wrote, “I went to bat for you Elyse off camera and on. It’s hard to do the show. But the way Ramona treated you in that moment was really telling.”
