In a new interview, Ramona, in true Ramona fashion, had some not so nice things to say about her castmate Bethenny Frankel. Ramona also dished on the shocking feud between Carole Radziwill and Bethenny, plus she discussed Luann de Leseep’s drunken arrest.
First, Ramona, 61, revealed that Bethenny and Carole’s feud affected the whole dynamic of the group.
“A discord between Bethenny and Carole kind of affected the whole ambiance of the show, and all of a sudden this season, I’m like really close to Dorinda [Medley] and Carole,” said Ramona to Us Weekly. “I don’t think we chose sides, I think things just happened organically. Whatever happened between Bethenny and Carole happened between them, and everything else just kind of happened organically.”
Ramona also made it clear that there is still some lingering tension between her and Bethenny.
“Bethenny is Bethenny,” said Ramona. “Bethenny’s just not happy, I mean she says she’s not happy, I mean she’s either crying or screaming … hopefully she’ll get happy.”
And what about her relationship with Sonja Morgan? “[We’re] not in a great place when we start this season and you have to watch the show to see how we evolve,” said Ramona.
When it comes to Luann’s drunken arrest from last December, which led to charges of attacking of a cop and resisting arrest (you can see the injuries of that officer here), Ramona had much kinder words.
“What I realize in life is that people fall down, and boy did Luann fall down hard but it’s how you get up. And she has gotten up and is in such a good place and we’re all so proud of her,” she said of Luann. “She’s in a great place. She’s doing yoga. She’s going to AA everyday. She’s lost weight, and she looks fabulous.”
Finally, Ramona promises viewers will see a gentler and kinder version of herself this season.
“You can tell from the trailer that I’m really not [in any altercations this season]. I have a different approach. My approach is not to be confrontational, but more like take someone to the side,” she stated.
The new season of RHONY premieres Wednesday, April 4 at 9/8c on Bravo.
