The Real Housewives of New York cast members gathered in Long Island, New York today to film the season 12 reunion IN PERSON! As we all know, this is a big deal (to reality TV fans) during the coronavirus pandemic among all of the virtual reunions.
They are probably still arguing at this point, but we did know some things about the reunion before even before the filming finished up. Elyse Slaine said she was not asked to be a part of the taping. Leah McSweeney is ready to face off against Ramona Singer. Tinsley Mortimer flew in from Chicago (and subsequently quarantined) in order to safely tape the reunion. Oh, and Ramona has an issue with Luann de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan’s manners, which is just rich coming from Ramona of all people.
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.
Ramona Singer has been right in the middle of all the drama this season on Real Housewives of New York. You know how Ramona hates to be the center of attention!
She has slammed newbie RHONY co-star Leah McSweeney for her drunken antics. She has fought with Elyse Slaine about whether or not they are close friends.
Ramona was berated by Dorinda Medley about plans for Ramona’s birthday party, because Dorinda thought that she and Sonja Morgan were used as a social media photo op for the party planner. And let’s not forget that Ramona has ditched the ladies to attend swankier parties or go on a date.
With a mid-season exit from Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer and a set of new taglines, I really had high hopes for the rest of the season of the show. I want this show to work. But in Tinsley’s absence, Dorinda Medley’s outbursts, which have been a recurring theme this season, have been redirected to longtime friend Ramona Singer.
While I’ve always loved RHONY, I’m not crazy about how either one of these ladies is acting this season. This entire season has felt like Ramona would much rather be out socializing with her “fake friends,” as co-star Sonja Morgan puts it, partying in the Hamptons and climbing the social ladder. Meanwhile, Dorinda is holding nothing back as she unleashes her frustration on her fellow RHONY ladies. While this season was filmed nine months ago, the drama is still raging between Dorinda and Ramona off-camera.
Ever since Tinsley Mortimer left Real Housewives of New York, co-star Ramona Singer has become the new target for her angry, and often drunken, co-stars. Dorinda Medley took issue with the fact that Ramona brought Dorinda and Sonja Morgan to Long Island to help with her birthday party planning.
Dorinda was angry that Ramona wouldn’t include Sonja’s birthday in the planning and ignored all their suggestions. Ramona even forced them to appear in a social media photograph with the owner.
It looks like the remainder of Season 12 is going to be rough for Real Housewives of New York stars Ramona Singer and Leah McSweeney. In the beginning, Ramona portrayed herself as a surrogate mother to out of control newbie Housewife Leah.
During Ramona’s RHONY cast trip to Newport, Rhode Island, Leah went full throttle on her decision to start drinking again. Leah begged Ramona to let her sister, Sarah McSweeney, come for part of the trip. After first agreeing, Ramona withdrew the invitation.
We all know how much Ramona Singer loves to share her life on Instagram and remind us all of how “ageless” she looks. She quarantined in Boca Raton, Florida with her daughter Avery Singer and ex-husband Mario Singer. She documented the meals they made, the exercises they did, the outfits they dressed up in, just having the most fun in quarantine.
Now, she’s back in New York City and the reported coronavirus cases are surging in Florida. Did she quarantine for 14 days just to be cautious? Not according to Instagram. And, now, her Real Housewives of New York co-star Leah McSweeney is calling her out for her behavior. Ramona has bragged a million times over about how she’s a mother figure to Leah, but who’s mothering who now, Ramona?
Ramona Singer has always said her delivery is downright terrible, but boy did she put her foot in her mouth this time.
Earlier this week, the Real Housewives of New York City star found herself on the receiving end of major backlash after making a flagrantly insensitive comment related to the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests around the country. Now, Ramona is taking to social media to claim the experience was a serious learning lesson for her.
