Ramona Singer Says 'Real Housewives of New York' Drives Her to Drink (VIDEO)

Ramona SingerAs season five of The Real Housewives of New York City came to a close this week, there are still plenty of unresolved issues and unanswered questions that remain. One that has continued to pop up season after season is whether Ramona Singer has a drinking problem.

Aviva Drescher accused her of having one this season, as did Jill Zarin in the past. Yesterday, Ramona addressed the issue herself with Anderson Cooper, and she didn't exactly deny that she often imbibes with enthusiasm. Instead she blamed her little pinot problem on the other ladies and said it's their fault she needs to drink more during filming.


She told him:

Jill [Zarin] decided I had a drinking problem last year because she was very jealous I came out with Ramona Pinot Grigio. It gives me security around these women who are about to attack me, having a glass of wine in case they get a little too feisty with me, maybe I throw it in their face. But I haven't done that!

Come to think of it, it's kind of remarkable that hasn't thrown any in anyone's face. She does have some restraint I guess. She said normally she doesn't drink that much, and hadn't had a glass of wine in two weeks. But when the cameras roll, she starts throwing them back.

It's understandable I think. I can't imagine dealing with all of that drama without a little liquid courage. And as Anderson pointed out, at least she's not as bad as Kim Zolciak of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. "Kim Zolciak used to bring the wine like in the car," he said. There's always someone lushier.

Does Ramona have a real drinking problem? I don't know, and I don't think that anyone can really judge based on her behavior on the show alone because the show is so bat sh*t crazy. In fact, anyone who can deal with all of that drama without a drink may be the one with the real problem.
