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.
This has to be the most alcohol fueled season of The Real Housewives of New York ever. Hands down. We know these women love to drink, but this season is off the rails. Bethenny Frankel leaving the show did SOMETHING to this group. They’re totally insane. At first it looked like Leah McSweeney could be that force, but she’s fallen in line with the mess. Someone help these women!
Ramona’s birthday is front and center on this episode, and things look crazy! I cannot wait for her fourth wall breaking moment at the party. Apparently, she’s not fond of everyone’s out of control behavior. Normally I’d say Ramona is overreacting. However, this season it wouldn’t surprise me if they took things too far. After all, we wouldn’t want to embarrass Ramona in front of her fifty best girlfriends!
Real Housewives of New York always delivers. In so many ways. The fighting, the laughs, Lady Sonja Morgan drunkenly falling off a chair at a dinner table. Even on the most boring of seasons, they seem to keep every entertained enough to continue watching. After all, what has really happened this season?
One thing we can point to is the dissolution of the friendship between Ramona Singer and Elyse Slaine. It went downhill so quickly I wasn’t even exactly sure what happened. And Elyse has admitted to not knowing what happened either. We could speculate that maybe Ramona regretted bringing Elyse into the group as a friend of. Or maybe Ramona just can’t handle one more friend in her 60-person strong girl gang. That’s a lot of people to keep up with. But maybe Ramona should have kept Elyse on her good side.
It would be an understatement to say Luann de Lesseps FREAKED out on last week’s episode. This has been the messiest season of The Real Housewives of New York ever. However, the way Lu treated Sonja Morgan was so random and so uncalled for. In all fairness, Sonja should be paid for her cabaret appearance. Luann’s ego can’t handle that, apparently. Pay the poor girl, so she doesn’t have a full breakdown!
Another big talking point heading into this episode is the new rift between Ramona Singer & Elyse Slaine. It’s looking like that friendship might be donezo. Also, why is Dorinda Medley so invested in the issue between Luann & Sonja? Doesn’t she have her own history of treating Sonja like crap? Or do we not remember the issue about the crest on the slippers?
