Melissa Gorga Says “There’s No Excuses” For Ramona Singer’s Behavior On Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip; Says She Holds Ramona “Close To Her Heart”

Ramona Singer has always ruffled a lot of feathers. It’s hard not to after spending as long as she has on Real Housewives of New York. But I think we all know Ramona goes above and beyond the usual housewives behavior, and not in a good way. Which was glaringly apparent after a dismal last season of RHONY.

Ramona might brag that she put housewives on the map, but her show is the one that’s on hiatus right now. And the allegation is that it has a lot to do with her. So her time on the all star -studded Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip is no exception. In fact, it seems like she’s getting worse, if that’s even possible.

Ramona already sparred with Kenya Moore before they even landed in their destination. While Ramona might claim that Kenya had it out for her, calling Kenya a “bitch” right off the bat was over the top. It looks like going to be hard for Ramona to hang onto any friends on the island. But Ramona has found an ally in Melissa Gorga.

The longtime Real Housewives of New Jersey star might not outright defend her, but she also won’t make any excuses for her behavior.  Melissa recently told Page Six, “There’s no excuses. Ramona lives in Ramona’s world.” Yeah, that kind of sounds like a little bit of a defense.

Melissa did manage to side with Kenya in her fight with Ramona. She said of the incident, “I think [Kenya] made sense with whatever she argued about. She’s right.”

But Melissa, who has been close friends with Ramona for years, admits she won’t turn her back on her. Melissa explained, “I hold Ramona close to my heart. I appreciate her. I know that she can say things sometimes that piss people off and get people upset. But I always try to explain where she’s coming from. ”

She concluded, “I have a soft spot for her most of the time. I know that she twists her words and she can say things sometimes that she really doesn’t mean. I think she has trust in me that I’m reasonable and I’m not going to just tear her down. I’m going to let her explain why she said something.”

Melissa can say Ramona’s behavior is inexcusable, but continuing to give her the benefit of the doubt is nothing short of enabling. And the last thing that Ramona needs is another enabler. While she has been a stellar, if not controversial housewife for years, there comes a time when a housewife overstays her welcome. See Vicki Gunvalson as a perfect example.

Maybe Ramona’s time on RHONY is up and she’s better suited for these spin offs. After all, arguing over getting the best room is her speciality. Either way, I think we are seeing the possible end of Ramona. And I don’t even think she knows it.
