For those of you watching Real Housewives of New York, you know that the “Ramona-coaster” is in full swing. That’s right – Ramona Singer is officially ready to rumble with anyone standing in her way. And her main target seems to be newbie, Leah McSweeney. Despite them getting off to a decent start, things quickly grew frosty between the two. Ramona just can’t seem to get over mothering Leah and won’t accept her for who she is. Well, in fairness, who Leah is is a lot. But Ramona could take it down a notch.
The last few episodes of RHONY have showed Ramona’s unwillingness to bend on what she would deem “high society” behavior. But at this point, it’s seeming more like “old puritan” behavior. Ramona should know that sometimes when people are drinking, they get a little rowdy. Especially with this bunch! You mean to tell me that one of her 50 closest friends hasn’t had a lapse in judgment when slinging back cocktails? Seems to me that Ramona is just trying to control the situation. Case in point, Ramona trying to cut the cameras when Leah was grinding on Luann de Lesseps at her birthday party.
During last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New York, Ramona Singer took it upon herself to reveal that Leah McSweeney has bipolar 2 disorder. Apparently, she saw it in an article
that Avery probably sent to her that she read. She didn’t even bring it up to Leah herself. Instead, she just talked behind her back and shared her unsolicited medical advice.
Ramona said that one of her friends told her, “Ramona listen, this Leah girl, she writes a blog and on a blog she says she’s bipolar.” She even declared, “That explains it all!” The ignorance is real. Ramona said, “I found out she’s bipolar and she’s on medication and I know people who are bipolar and you cannot mix alcohol with meds, it makes you act not responsible. It’s actually very dangerous.” In Mexico, Leah lashed out at Ramona, telling her, “Don’t talk about my vagina and don’t talk about my mental health.” Damn right. You tell her, Leah.
No one is happier that Bethenny Frankel is gone from Real Housewives of New York than Luann de Lesseps. Well, maybe Ramona Singer. They’re probably tied with their level of elation.
However, much to their chagrin, the fans want Bethenny back on the show and it keeps coming up in interviews and on social media. And it doesn’t help that the current season has very little going on in terms of the storyline.
Time for the annual Real Housewives of New York Mexico trip! No idea why they always go to the same place, but it’ll be fun nonetheless. Trouble is afoot though after last week’s birthday disaster. Ramona Singer was NOT having Leah McSweeney’s dirty dancing at her birthday bash. She spent the entire episode dragging Leah for attire she deemed inappropriate. Who made Ramona the fashion police?
It seems like everyone is growing tired of Ramona being an awful person. This season may be the biggest example of her toxic behavior. The way she treats her longtime friends Sonja Morgan and Dorinda Medley is dreadful. Although, Dorinda hasn’t exactly been a saint this season. Her actions have crossed the line into bullying many times. The biggest villain of this season is alcohol. It makes them all so messy!
Last week’s episode of Real Housewives of New York ended with a cliffhanger. Ramona Singer was yelling at production, threatening to leave the show because of how wild the cast got at her lame luncheon-style birthday party. (No, the party wasn’t actually at lunchtime, but it might as well have been.)
She took issue with Leah McSweeney for looking amazing when she walked into the party. Jealousy alert. She was miffed when some of the cast members didn’t comply with her party’s dress code. But, she really flipped out when the women started dancing and it was too raunchy for her high society friends.
The news recently broke that the Real Housewives of New York cast will gather with Andy Cohen to film the Season 12 reunion in person in Long Island. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast just filmed their reunion, but it was via zoom, which makes sense since Andy is based in New York.
Elyse Slaine confirmed that she will not be a part of the taping, but fans have been wondering if Tinsley Mortimer will be there in person. She left the season halfway through to move to Chicago, so it was assumed she would show up virtually. However, it has been reported that Tinsley is already back in the Big Apple, following quarantine guidelines before the reunion.
Ramona Singer is infamous for forcing hotel staff members to unpack her luggage on Real Housewives of New York cast trips. She never seems at-all-appreciative for the assistance and we never see her leaving a tip (but I’m hoping she does leave a generous gratuity and we just never got to see it on the show).
So, it’s really not surprising that Ramona’s daughter Avery Singer “allegedly” acts like a diva when she has to pack up her belongings. Like mother, like daughter, right? Well, apparently, Avery caused quite the scene in a New York City FedEx.
Real Housewives of New York alum Bethenny Frankel has a lot on her plate these days. She shocked RHONY fans when she abruptly decided to exit the show in August of 2019. There must be some hard feelings, because Bethenny allegedly threw a fit when a producer during Bravocon opined that the show didn’t need her to succeed. A furious Bethenny blocked that producer on social media.
Since then, Bethenny has been busy helping those impacted by the coronavirus. The Skinnygirl mogul delivered 1 million protective suits to New York and 50,000 suits to Louisiana. Bethenny’s BStrong foundation raised funds to aid 100 black-owned businesses impacted by Covid-19. Say what you will about Bethenny, but she really comes through to help those affected by disasters.
