Bethenny Frankel Makes Ramona Singer a Mean, Drunk Housewife

29

Ramona SingerRamona Singer has never been the pillar of politeness since we first met her on The Real Housewives of New York, but she's never been quite as crazy and mean as she has been this season. She's always had a sharp tongue and a filter missing, but lately she's just been looking for trouble whenever she can pull the glass of Pinot Grigio away from her mouth long enough to speak.

Turns out there may a good reason for her prickly personality of late -- Bethenny Frankel. Recent reports say Ramona is so insanely jealous of Frankel that she's seething. Could her sour grapes about not being as successful as Frankel be the reason she's downing so many stomped upon grapes?

A source told RadarOline.com:

Ramona has always been jealous of Bethenny and didn't even want her on the show at first. Ramona is trying to play the sympathy card and came up with a plan to spin her negative press by saying that she is the 'Bethenny' of this season... Ramona is the person who really turned Bethenny against Jill [Zarin] and now it's backfiring on her!

She does appear to be a bit of a Bethenny wannabe with her Pinot Grigio to Frankel's Skinnygirl margaritas; and she does seem to be working pretty hard to get in fights with anyone who will engage her. She's also been pretty quick to call Frankel out for "exaggerating" how much money she's raked in with her margarita sales. So it could be true, I suppose.

Of course, the "source" for these accusations could very well be Jill Zarin, as she's been known to dish dirt to the media previously. Though even if it is all true, it still doesn't make Jill look any better or more sympathetic. She's mean enough on her own, no matter who else is behaving badly.

Do you think Bethenny Frankel is the source of Ramona Singer's bad behavior? Do you think Jill Zarin has anything to do with these reports?

Pt. 5-See, last season Bethenny went to Ramona's(Ramona's plan to surprise Jill) so they could clear the air. As they were about to start getting the air cleared, LuAnn stopped the conversation and said that was enough. Last season, Ramona walked on the bridge and believed Bethenny was the one going to the media. She called Bethenny a media whore, same words Kelly used at Scary Island. Ramona admitted she was wrong at Scary Island. Kelly couldn't cope with what she was being told by someone she said she called all the time (Jill) while she was there. Kelly said Alex was channeling the devil, something Jill had said earlier.  Even if something isn't played onscreen, we are given the clues by the editors to notice these things. It is up to us to decifer.  Jill showed zero empathy for Kelly when she was called to help her friend.  Again, narcissistic. Jill cared more about Jills plans than any mental breakdown Kelly may have had. I also thought it was quite wierd how Cindy called Jill her best friend so fast at the dentist.  She sure moved mountains on that girl. Having her on her team tipped the scales to team Brunette. They became a pack. I actually think Kelly is trying awfully hard and tried to see the good in the blonds in Morocco. Jill said don't believe what you just saw to her, and she is highly susceptible to suggestion.  Poor Kelly. She would be better off without Jill manipulating her.

Ramona is her own worst enemy...She is actually embarassing to watch.  What's worse is that while on Watch What Happens Live she actually defended her behavior in Morocco.  Really Ramona? You think that demanding and insulting behavoir is okay?


You can't even compare Bethanny and Ramona- Bethanny "gets it" and thats why she is sucessful. I'm over Ramona and " Turtle Time."

If you read Ramona's blogs at Bravo, she wrote "LuAnn and Jill pick on me because I'm like Bethenny" PLEASE!!! About Mario, only one question Why Sonja get so emotional? my bet is she knew before this trip that Ramona and Mario are having problems, simple. Last thing, I used to adore Alex, but this season to me looks like she has to fight Ramona's battles to be on the show!!!

Totally agree that Ramona is a #1 idiot --not just bitchy but stupid! She cannot hold a candle to Frankel and her supposed business acumen? NOT!!

What?  I don't think so on your comments about Romana  being the cause of the Jill and Bethanny split.  That mess was completely between Jill and Bethany.    Jill has blamed several people and situations for the demise of the friendship.   Spin away sister but those of us that have watched the show saw Jill bash Bethany until Bethany crumpled into tears on the street outside of her apt.  


Ramona wants to market her Pinot this season as she did with her line of Renew products last season. 


I think Bravo Producers have a cast formula and certain roles they want the Housewives to fill each season.   The Queen Bee, Luann, The Drama Queen, Jill, The Problem Person, Ramona, The Crazy, Kelly, etc. etc.


I'm a super fan and I like the ladies.  I'm just not sure they are aware that the fame has gone to their celebrity heads.
