When you think about it, Bravo really changed the face of reality television. Sure, Bravo didn’t invent the genre, but over the years, the network has taken risks to start a wide variety of reality themed shows–from real estate to yachting and more. Many of these shows have been very successful and have been game changers in the reality television world.
Of course, the franchise Bravo is probably best known for is the Real Housewives. Who knew in 2006 that the franchise would still be going strong in 2019. From the original Real Housewives of Orange County, the show has landed in cities from New York to Dallas to Beverly Hills. One of the most successful spin-offs has been the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Recently, Peter Thomas, who used to be a regular on the show when married to Cynthia Bailey, shared his thoughts about how the men on the Housewives shows are portrayed.
Ever since she was booted from Real Housewives of New York, original cast member Jill Zarin has been desperately trying to get her full-time apple back. Jill has popped up here and there in episodes since she was let go after Season 4. She famously feuded with both Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer on the show. It seems like Jill’s bad blood with Ramona is still going on.
Jill even permitted RHONY cameras to film outside of her beloved husband, Bobby Zarin’s, funeral. In that moment of intense grief, Bethenny and Jill reunited and hugged. Still, many viewers were critical of Jill’s decision.
Because, of course, she does! The Singer Stinger strikes again, y’all! Since Real Housewives of New York’s conception, Ramona has been the gift that keeps on giving. If you like your gifts wrapped in paper recycled from childhood trauma. This is a woman who has no filter and no f*cks to give, perfect for reality television. Ramona floats on a cloud of pinot grigio and muddled thoughts with a mouth that often gets her into trouble. That said, she is the OG of this particular franchise and prides herself on being
Season 11 saw Ramona with many opinions, as usual. Ramona has always been wide open, even when sharing thoughts about her co-stars. We know how she feels about LuAnn de Lesseps’ drinking. Viewers also got a little hint about Ramona’s feelings on Bethenny Frankel’s ex-boyfriend. She also blessed fans by providing her perception of Barbara Kavovit’s role on the show. To put it mildly, she might not care what you think, but Ramona definitely cares what she thinks. Since she’s not in the business of making other people happy, now Ramona wants another friend of hers to join the RHONY cast. Sit down and strap in because the Ramonacoaster is about to take another ride.
I feel like I stayed longer at Real Housewives of New York cast events than Ramona Singer did this past season. She always left early to go on a date. Is it in the cast contracts to stay at events for a minimal amount of time? It really seemed like Ramona stayed as long as she “had” to before peacing out immediately.
Weirdly, most of her dates aren’t even filmed, yet we always hear about how she’s going on so many. Sometimes, I think she just says she’s going on dates so she can sneak back home to hang out with her dog CoCo. She only has one year left to live, you guys. Or at least that’s what Ramona has been saying…based on nothing at all, which (weirdly) makes me laugh every time she mentions it.
Ramona Singer is the “OG” of Real Housewives of New York. She has been on the show since day one, and she never left, unlike Bethenny Frankel, who left and returned. Luann “Cabaret” De Lesseps was at one time demoted to be a lowly Friend of the Housewives.
Ramona has, as always, been busy causing drama during Season 11. At Barbara Kavovit’s clambake, Ramona made her own lobster goodie bags by shoving lobsters in a plastic bag to bring home. At another time, Ramona was caught kissing serial Housewife dater Harry Dubin. Why, Ramona? Why?
Can you believe that we are finishing up Season 11 of the Real Housewives of New York? It seems like the show just started back up and now the reunion is almost here. RHONY has become the gold standard of Housewife shows. The ladies are clever, combative and aren’t afraid to look like fools on camera. And their genuine friendships usually result in them finding a way to work out their differences. Except with Luann de Lesseps, of course!
Ramona Singer has been around since the beginning of the show and has never been afraid to display her real self on camera. And it is not always pretty. Ramona can be thoughtless, rude, demanding and self-centered. You have to wonder, what does Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen think about Ramona and her diva-like ways?
This show I tell you. The Real Housewives Of New York ladies know how to do it right. Every episode is like going to an all you can eat buffet.
Only on Real Housewives Of New York can you have a drunken collapse over an argument about cabaret turn into political commentary on the last time Sonja Morgan probably felt relevant. Which flows into competing artists giving out free art and Ramona Singer inviting her ex-husband and new boyfriend to a party, then being forced to admit to making out with her former friend’s ex-husband in front of another friend who also hooked up with this same guy.
Ramona Singer has had an interesting season on Real Housewives of New York. She has not really had much of a storyline, but Ramona has been making her presence known on each episode by being, well, Ramona. Following her split from Mario Singer, Ramona seemed a little nicer, a little more humble. Dare I say, even a little bit likable?
This season, however, Ramona has been back to her old self-centered, thoughtless ways. Sonja Morgan thinks Ramona is very much into herself. Ramona has been called out for rude comments she made about Dennis Shields after his death. She also chose not to invite her co-stars to her birthday party–but made sure they knew all about her fabulous celebration! And she has treated newbie Barbara Kavovit like an evil stepsister. Now, Ramona has put her foot in her mouth regarding one of her co-stars–Season 11 lightning rod Luann de Lesseps.
