If you’ve tried to pump that season eleven trailer of The Real Housewives of New York directly into your veins as much as I have, then I’m sure you’re well aware Ramona Singer’s infamous ex Mario Singer will make his first cameo on the show since 2011. A couple years ago, the RHONY OG discovered her husband of 22 years had been cheating on her through an article from Page Six. The woman in question was 27 at the time. However, it’s safe to say her and Mario’s affair did not age like a fine wine.
No one was happier to hear of this than CountlessLuann de Lesseps, who’d been needled by Ramona for years over her own crumbling marriage and eventual divorce from then-husband. Even though she avoided commenting on the betrayal as long as she could, inevitably Ramona filed for divorce as well in 2014. After nearly a decade away from the cameras, the sharp-tongued former househusband will return. But will they be on good terms?
If there is one thing we have learned since Ramona Singer has been a single girl in the city, it is that she has game. For someone who was blindsided by a divorce in her late fifties, The Real Housewives of New York star has been enthusiastic about jumping back into the dating pool. Maybe a little too enthusiastic at times. Ramona loves to shamelessly flirt, even though her skills are sometimes questionable.
Apparently, Ramona has not always been as confident in her approach to men as she is now. She has revealed that prior to her divorce from ex Mario Singer, she had a brief interest in another House Husband. None other than the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’favorite husband Harry Hamlin.
After ten seasons on the Real Housewives of New York City, Ramona Singer is still keeping us entertained. The RHONY star is fancying herself as a bit of a peacemaker on the show this season and reveals how she’s helping to soften the ladies during times of conflict. She also shares her favorite filming moment and talks about the stress of filming a reality show. And, among other things, Ramona reveals what she is looking for in an ideal man these days. Read on for all things Ramona, including her thoughts on that cast boat ride from hell.
On the Daily Dish podcast, Ramona shares whether she misses filming the show after a season wraps, “I love my downtime. We basically film five months. The reunion really is only one day, and that’s in July. So we really we have off seven months. Not a bad gig.” Does she find herself anxious to get back to filming? “it’s a double-edged sword because when we work, it’s really intense and can be emotionally jarring because we’re seven women that like each other but at times we really go at each others’ throats, so it can be quite emotionally disturbing. So, when we’re not filming it’s kind of nice to take a break from everyone and just see them now and then. You’re under different kinds of business pressures. It’s a good balance. When we start filming again, am I excited about it? Absolutely. I have fun when I film with all these ladies and I always say I’ll continue to do the show as long as I have fun because you have to love what you do to be good at it.”
Andy Cohen even showed an “In Memoriam” segment for their friendship during last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live. After Andy played that clip, he told Ramona, “You got very emotional watching that.” Ramona confessed, “I could cry almost because I was so close to Sonja and I don’t know if it will happen again or not.” So sad.
I would love to see Ramona Singer’s reaction to this news: her ex-husband Mario Singer evicted his former mistress Kasey Dexter out of their Boca Raton apartment. I mean, they are currently filming Real Housewives of New York, so it is actually possible that this might make it into the show. It’s doubtful, but it would be great to catch Ramona throwing a little shade or rolling those infamous eyes of hers.
After dumping Kasey and kicking her out of their shared apartment, a police report was filed after an officer responded to a domestic disturbance at Mario’s apartment.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. For Ramona Singer, season nine of The Real Housewives Of New York was surely the most dramatic of times. Now that she’s had a chance to reflect on the season, the three-part reunion, and viewer feedback, Ramona says she sees it all in a new light. And she opens up about the personal turmoil her divorce from Mario Singer threw her into, which affected her in ways we might not have seen.
Ramona’s latest blog is about as introspective as I’ve ever seen her, which is interesting. Is she feeling humbled by watching herself on TV, or is she in damage control? Either way, she opens up about her feelings on the season and what contributed to her actions. “To say I had a difficult season on RHONY is an understatement,” she begins. “As I watched back over the past few months, seeing myself has given me the opportunity to reflect and face the truth. The bottom line is, I behaved poorly.”
Since Real Housewives Of New York wrapped its dramatic season where Ramona spent plenty of time looking the fool (and not just because of whatever plastic surgery she did on her face), she’s admitted her behavior was “childish” and she has been making amends. “My intent is never bad, but my delivery always SUCKS,” she defends. “I really have bad skills when it comes to communicating.” Good to know the Pinot-pology tour strikes again!
