Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer has to be the busiest woman in New York City! Ramona’s new Pinot Grigio wine has her traveling the country meeting fans and signing bottles. That’s just the beginning, Ramona regularly appears on HSN with her amazing jewelry line, has a clothing distribution company, skin care and is even appearing in an Off Broadway production!
While Bravo hasn’t yet released the new season’s cast list, it’s safe to say that as a fan favorite, Ramona will return although she couldn’t officially confirm or deny that for me.
When asked about some of her cast mates, Ramona started with her fellow blondes: “I am absolutely true friends with Alex McCord and Sonja Morgan off screen, I couldn’t do the show without them.” Echoing fans, Ramona added that Cindy Barshop was a ‘non-event’ calling her flat with no charisma and no energy on screen. “I enjoyed her one-on-one having dinner and things but she just wasn’t right for the show, some people just don’t do well in front of the cameras.”
And what about that whole incident in Morocco where the fortune teller told Ramona there was another woman in husband Mario‘s life?
Ramona says: “I called Mario from Morocco after the fortune teller advised there was another woman in his life, he just laughed and immediately thought that the fortune teller must be talking about our daughter Avery. One of the keys to a really happy marriage is open communication and while all marriages have their ups and downs we’ve been together 20 years in a very successful loving relationship!”
Ramona also opened up about her relationship with Jill Zarin:
“During Season Four things changed. I tried very hard with Jill but Jill is her own worst enemy, something I have told her many times. This past season the raw emotion between us was very real and the damage that was done was irreversible. Jill is an unhappy person, and clearly having a loving husband, fame and fortune doesn’t necessarily make you happy.”
Having so much in common with Jill, Ramona noted that the differences between the two women is clear: “I am happy and appreciate all I have, I have a positive attitude, confidence and enjoy my life while Jill is clearly unhappy with herself and her life. I don’t have any anger toward Jill, more pity and sympathy.”
But while filming with people like Jill and cast mate Luann deLesseps can get taxing, Ramona found a new energy by going out and meeting fans during her wine tour. “I admit that my honesty has gotten me into trouble at times but I also comes clean when I’m wrong and apologize when necessary.”
In addition to touring the country with her wine, Ramona continues to appear on HSN with her stunning jewelry collection, on September 29 from 1pm to 3pm. She will also be teaching a course at the Learning Annex in New York City and will do a guest star walk-on for the Off Broadway production of “Miss Abigails Guide to Dating, Mating and Marriage” staring Joyce DeWitt of Three’s Company fame.
