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.
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?
The Real Housewives OG’s are an endangered species at this point. We only have a few left. The OG cast members who are still on TV have been through so much right before our eyes. When we first met Ramona Singer on Real Housewives of New York, she was constantly bragging about how hot and heavy and she and Mario Singer were. Then, she found out he was cheating on her in the press. They divorced. And, now, she’s all about that dating scene and being hot at sixty. Oh, and she and Mario quarantined together in Florida.
We’ve seen her go through a lot of different phases in life, but recently, she’s just been a bit more reasonable than she used to be. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not all the time. Who could forget Ramona and Sonja Morgan ditching the cast in Rhode Island to talk to “hot” guys at the bar instead of going to dinner? Before that she ditched her own Hampton house to look for more “hot” guys. Wait. What was I saying again? Oh, yeah, Ramona is a tiny bit more reasonable than she used to be. Here and there she really is the voice of reason with some solid anecdotes and advice. Her fellow OG Luann de Lesseps has certainly noticed.
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.
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.
Just like the rest of us, Bravolebrities can be Bravo fans as well. Vanderpump Rules couple Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark are Real Housewives of New York superfans. They love watching RHONY together, which sounds like the ideal relationship to me.
Stassi is so invested in RHONY that she’s willing to put her own Bravo paycheck on the line if she can make some casting changes.
