'Real Housewives' Is Turning Ramona Singer Into a Lush

ramona signerRamona Singer, lover of sun-shaped True Faith necklaces, pinot grigio, and of course her marriage (which, in case you haven't heard, has never been better), is denying that one of her affinities has become a problem. No, it's not the necklaces; The Real Housewives of New York star maintains a healthy balance of star-shaped pendants to long, thin chains. It's her drinking. She's claiming that the only reason Bravo has been emphasizing her alkie ways is because they're short on drama this season. Which -- sarcasm alert! -- if you happened to catch last night's "Close your eyes, now open them" episode, you're probably thinking she might be right.

The oenophile recently told In the Mixx that she just likes to have wine with a beautiful dinner, and that she thinks Bravo thinks the story lines are so bad on The Real Housewives of New York that they had to make up this story.

Yeah ... 'cause if you haven't had two glasses of wine by 11 a.m., you're just weird.

She also mentioned how they're always filmed at social events -- which, fine, people drink at them. But why does Ramona always seem to take it a step further? Is it because she's just spastic by nature? Or is it because she really is drinking more than everybody else? I think it's a little of both.

There's no question that Ramona is ... a wild card. You never know what you're going to get from her -- what she's going to say, what she's going to do, blah blah blah. When we see her when she's dead sober (or is she?), she's already kind of nutty. Then, when you add a little booze to the mix, watch out. You're going to get diarrhea of the mouth Ramona 2.0, or Turtle Time Ramona. Both are bizarre. Both are entertaining.

That said, she definitely seems to need "her medicine" more than anybody else on the show -- or more than anyone I've ever met. A few weeks ago, she was acting like a crack head when she didn't have her pinot grigio at Jill's event (and it was really early). And then there was the time that Cindy didn't have any for her at her birthday party. And last night, Sonja and Alex were basically feeding her wine through a bottle after her fight with Jill. That's not normal!

If Ramona does have a drinking problem -- and it seems like she might have an itty bitty one -- I hope she gets help. But while she's causing so much drama on Real Housewives, I don't see that happening any time soon, if ever.

Do you think Ramona has a drinking problem?
