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.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been yawning my way through the current Real Housewives of New York season. Pretty much nothing is happening other than some overindulgence in alcohol. During last night’s episode, Leah McSweeney was excited to introduce the group to her sister Sarah McSweeney.
Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan were not on board with that plan. They wanted to restrict the Newport trip invite list to just the cast. Leah was not happy about this. Then, Ramona picked at Leah for her drinking, which incited Leah to drink even more… and inexplicably start throwing objects. Yesterday, Leah called out Ramona for being unwelcoming to her sister, among other things. Last night, Leah and her sister Sarah continued to slam Ramona, and eventually, Ramona even got Avery Singer involved in the social media feud.
The Real Housewives of New York viewers have seen snippets of Ramona Singer’s daughter Avery Singer since she was a little girl. It’s so hard to believe that Avery has graduated college and has entered the workforce all before our eyes. We don’t get to see her too much on RHONY these days, but when we do, she’s always there to give her mom some sage advice.
Even when she was in elementary school, Avery always seemed wise beyond her years. But even so, it’s still so interesting to think that she and Ramona are both out on the dating scene looking for guys. Well, currently, Avery and Ramona are safely isolated in Boca Raton, Florida, spending time with Mario Singer, Ramona’s ex and Avery’s father.
There’s no denying that Ramona Singer is infamous for her lack of a filter on The Real Housewives of New York City. I mean, even Bravo couldn’t resist compiling a package at last season’s reunion of the RHONY OG apologizing (or at least recognizing) over and over that her delivery is almost always crass, rude and downright terrible.
However, that’s never stopped the Singer Stinger before and this time, former RHONY stars Kristen Taekman and Cindy Barshop were on the receiving end of her Ramotional digs.
She may be polarizing, but there is no denying that Ramona Singer is a staple figure on the Real Housewives of New York. She really does try her best to live the most authentic version of her life. The right delivery isn’t always there… but Ramona means well most of the time.
These days even her castmates are quick to accept and forgive her. If only because there is no changing her ways. The inescapable adoration for Ramona’s erratic behavior brought on sadness when we found out she was diagnosed with Lyme Disease earlier this year. Now, Ramona has some good news to share.
God bless Real Housewives Of New York. Seriously. This show is the gift that keeps on giving and giving and giving, like Sonja Morgan‘s vagina after a couple shots. And Sexy J really went to 11 yesterday.
With the Blue Stone Manor under construction the ladies are in the Hamptons bedding down at Ramona Singer‘s palatial abode. Too bad Luann de Lesseps was still shunted into the finished basement. Still a basement is a basement is a basement with spiders, and smelling a bit like must and dog piss. Which incidentally is probably the scent of the perfume Sonja is bottling as part of her lifestyle collection. After a miserable night Luann bailed to visit her chiropractor while the rest of the ladies hit up a vineyard.
Luann is the tempest in the third floor, and must’ve caused an awful storm to reflect her mood because it was overcast, raining, and gloomy. Ramona decided the theme of this trip is bonding, so she turns a boozy lunch into the opportunity to interrogate everyone about their deepest fears and insecurities. It’s mostly because she wants Tinsley Mortimer to spill the beans, but Tinsley has been around this town and this circuit longer than anyone. Truthfully, because she was born in it and it’s simply not that easy to upend the Tinz.
Even with the quarantine, plenty of reality TV stars celebrated Easter. Some of them even dressed up to eat dinner in the dining room, which is way more than what I did. Props to them.
Real Housewives of New York star Dorinda Medley wore bunny ears in the Berkshires. Margaret Josephs spent some quality time with her mom, Marge Senior. Terry Dubrow, Heather Dubrow, and their kids all wore matching Easter pajamas. I had no idea that was a thing. But, again, they put a lot more effort into getting dressed than I did yesterday.
The inclusion of Leah McSweeney into Real Housewives Of New York is creating a cultural divide between generations. Here we have Leah, a millennial on the cusp of also being a Gen Xer. Someone, ahem, my age. Then we have the rest of the ‘girls.’ Still calling themselves “girls” well (WELL) past the acceptable age of being called so. Which is something only middle-aged women of a certain generation do. These girls are actually OKBoomers, and these boomers are treating Leah and Tinsley Mortimer like their willful daughters who don’t recognize good sense.
The problem is, of course, that Tinsley and Leah are grown-ass women, well-past the acceptable age of being called “girls” themselves. Although Tinsley has clung vehemently to the pretensions of her mother’s generation and, on the surface, tries to adhere to the notions of how one behaves. Leah is more like “fuck it all.” She’s Bethenny Frankel-lite, which is why she’s shaping up to be a good replacement.
