LuAnn: I Knew Ramona Would Try to Flee

I really like Carole and know that she enjoys dating, so when I saw Nick recently I thought they would be a good match.

I realized Carole thought so too because he made her a little nervous, which is always a good sign a girl likes a boy! I don’t think Carole needs a matchmaker. She has plenty of guys that would like to date her!

Jacques seemed so irritated with Carole.  He wrote a list of things he thought she was doing wrong.    I can see what you saw in him.  He’s like a male version of you.

I know Ramona so well and knew she would try to flee when confronted. I love the fact that Heather picked the perfect location for the intervention (a banquet). I think it was high time Ramona got called out for her lying to us and for using her past to get out of being with us in the Berkshires.

I think you did Ramona a favor.  She got her retribution for the things she did on the trip.

Ramona has to know you don’t treat your friends that way, and she has to come to terms with her anger issues — especially when it comes to her throwing things at peoples faces when she feels like it. I think she was truly remorseful and understood she needed to adjust her behavior moving forward. I hope we see a change.

I think you wanted to make sure she learned her lesson.

Ramona giving flowers to Kristen was a nice gesture, and Kristen seemed happy at that moment. But the mood quickly changed when they rehashed the incident in the Berkshires. I don’t think flowers were enough to make it all go away so quickly!

I feel like Kristen was trying to tell herself to remain mad at Ramona so she can maintain a storyline.

To add insult to injury, Ramona insinuated Kristen was a bad mother, and that’s never OK. It’s not the first time Ramona has accused someone of being a bad mother. One should never judge another mother when it comes to how they raise their children. Ramona doesn’t know anything about Kristen’s family and it was out-of-line. MONSTER seemed appropriate to me!

I don’t think she tried to insult Kristen by bringing up Avery.  Telling someone you want to spend more time with your daughter before she goes away for school and that Kristen will eventually wind up in the same situation with her kids is not insulting someone’s parenting.  Kristen just grabbed poop from her ass.

Kristen: Josh and I Are in the Trenches

The intervention with Ramona didn’t go so well in my eyes. She kept telling every one else to not shout while she was yelling and screaming and obviously uncomfortable! You think she might have anxiety and anger issues??? If she does this is a good time to work on those issues. It’s so obvious she didn’t want to come to the Berkshires in the first place, so I wasn’t surprised she made up an excuse to get back to her husband and wine in the Hamptons.

That was the most entertaining part of the episode.

Therapy with Kinglsey. . .Hmmm, where do I start?  Watching this was hard for me because it is hard to watch back arguments with your husband. For all of you out there reading this and watching the show, think back to the last argument you got into with your hubby. . . imagine watching it again and again and having to write about it?

Biting the marital bullet for a reality tv show. You can always use the fast forward button.

Josh and I have been together for a long time. We both love and support each other in everything we do, as a couple and as a family. He has a very stressful job trying to build an emerging business like EBOOST, and we have young kids. We are in the trenches. You wanted reality you got it!

I don’t think showcasing your marital problems will help sell whatever EBOOST is.

On the bright side — its great to see how far Kingsley has come with her therapy. We are very fortunate to have a wonderful therapist in Mindy. Kingsley is thriving, and I am very happy to say that and it is because she has been working hard and because of the commitment we have made to her therapy.

I hope she is learning to walk now.

As for Josh and I. Sometimes we bicker and fight and drive each other crazy. Go figure! Isn’t that called being married? But at the end of the day, we love and support each other and our children. Our foundation is strong and we really understand each other and work together #TeamTaekman.

Maybe editing is to blame or they just don’t have as much entertaining film but watching a housewife couple’s communications problems and anger issues is getting repetitive.  It’s almost the same in every housewife show, a common reality housewife trope.

Heather Tries to Outsmart “Old Fox” Ramona

More ageist remarks from Heather.  Doesn’t she realize she’ll get to Ramona’s age eventually?

What a great way to kick off the day on the right foot (or left!) when doing yoga with my girlfriends and childhood friend — and yogi! — Patrick McBride. How cute is he?!?

He seemed gay.

The girls and I may have been off to a slow start, given the fact that we whooped it up and stayed up late howling at the moon (we actually were singing) the night before! But looking out on the beautiful Berkshires taking in the refreshing air and drinking up the rolling hillside views (and lots of coffee) made everyone feel better.

Now that would have been interesting and entertaining footage.  I always like the first season of housewives shows because they focus more on getting to know the cast, the cast having a good time getting to know one another and it’s only punctuated by drama.  Now it seems it is all drama punctuated with fun moments.

Nature has always inspired me and exercising in the great outdoors is one of my very favorite things to do. As soon as Ramona left, things became quite tranquil and everyone was finally able to unwind. I am so glad the girls were able to experience my Berkshire garage since it is such a major part of my DNA. My friend, Remembrance Staber, is the team trainer for Tina Vindum’s Outdoor Fitness and she has taught me how to enjoy and embrace Mother Nature for my workouts!

Going to the Berkshires reminds me of summer camp and road trips.  Idyllic days, mosquitoes, s’mores by the campfire, ghost stories, sunscreen, water sports, ponytails, etc.

Back in the city, Kristen and Cash were at the sailboat pond in Central Park and I knew she needed to talk (and I will grab any chance to see that delicious Cash), so I took a lovely stroll after lunch and met up with them for a visit (rockin’ my favorite Yummie bottoms). Kristen was trying to process what happened between her and Ramona. Her lip was starting to heal, but the emotional scars could not until Kristen better understood why Ramona attacked her. As a group, we were ready to finally confront Ramona at the “Intervention,” but I also completely understood why Kristen decided she needed her own one-on-one with Ramona. Kristen deserved answers.

Sell girl, sell.  I thought Kristen already came to the conclusion that Ramona is an off kilter eccentric with impulse issues.  What else is there to understand?  She lives in New York City.  She should be used to these kinds of people.

Planning the “Intervention” for Ramona had to be a well thought exercise! It’s never easy to outsmart an old fox, so we had our work cut out for us! I chose Cherry because it is one of my favorite spots (located near the Meatpacking District) and it happens to be owned by my dear friend Jonathan Morr. The room is grand and sexy, the food is beyond delicious, and the big banquettes made the perfect trap! And, I let Jonathan know this it was not an ordinary dinner so if things got a little heated we had the restaurant staff filled in too! I hoped it wouldn’t get too loud, but I knew that it would.

I’m sure you and Lu enjoyed entrapping Ramona.  I can see where the controlling comments towards you are going to factor in during later episodes.

The plan was in place, Carole was the bait, Lu was the linebacker, and we were ready for action! And Ramona went along with our plan almost flawlessly! Fight/flight is Ramona’s modus operandi so in traditional Singer-style, she tried to flight before realizing there was no way out — which is when she showed her vulnerability. I believe Ramona did not intend to hurt Kristen and was embarrassed by her behavior. I know the dinner was hard on Ramona, but it was also very difficult for Sonja who felt most betrayed by Ramona.

I think it was good for her.  What she did was inexcusable and putting her in a trap makes people empathize with her.

Life is about recognizing our short comings and making improvements. And I liked to see the shift in Ramona. Let’s just say, she is a work in progress.

Aren’t we all?

Finally, Kristen and Ramona have their chance to break bread. Ramona had flowers in hand, and she finally gave Kristen the proper apology she deserved. And while appreciative, Kristen still needed answers as to why Ramona attacked — so she continued to press her, which put Ramona on the defensive. . .and we all know how she when she is on the defensive! Ramona was ready to eat crow but on her terms, and not the entire bird. It would have been very easy for Kristen to have just taken the apology and the beautiful flowers and Ramona’s sincerity and forgiven her, but she’s not quite ready to forget. And why should she?

She needs to milk it to get more screen time.

Sonja: Kristen Is Being Immature

You saw all the bottles and evidence on the lawn the next morning. Lu and Heather can really keep up with each other. I sure try.

Get your drink on ladies!

Lu and I had a ball. We finally had some time together.  She is a lot of fun when she lets her hair down. I know I have told all of you that before. We never went to the captain’s house for Lucas Nelson’s after party. He’s Willie Nelson’s son. Very good-looking! He pulled up beside our boat and invited us to come and he was staying at the captain’s house so I had to get his number to rendezvous. I know it looked very lecherous but it really wasn’t. We do like to get a reaction out if you guys.

I think a lot of the reaction was disgust and embarrassment at the blatant flirting.  I didn’t think it was that bad.  It’s not like you flashed him your breasts for a t-shirt.

So we corner Ramona and we get her to say she’s going to look at her anger management. I know that’s not going to happen. We all know that’s not going to happen. Mario knows that’s not going to happen! I’m laughing when I see myself say “I can’t shake her so you better straighten up Singer!”

It was for entertainment purposes.  Watching Ramona scream and go bug eyed is like a seasonal tradition.

Hard being a mom. Hard supporting a family. I’m under the same pressure as Josh. Gets lonely doing it on your own. I get it when he says emerging business. Kristen is being immature. She would know if she was on her own. They have weekends together. I wish I had my husband on weekends with my daughter — like we used to — but that’s all changed. Kristen doesn’t cook? Maybe her nanny can help. I used to have the nanny chop everything up so I could cook. I love cooking. She could do the opposite. She can chop everything up and have the nanny cook and share her recipes with Kristen. I’ve had my fellow Housewives over to teach them my recipes. I’ll have to show Kristen some good ones for the crockpot, on the indoor stovetop grill, or in the toaster oven. Or just throw the store bought ready-made chicken or turkey in the pot. Make soup! Everyone in the family loves fresh-made soup. It’s very easy

Seriously, did Josh know that Kristen didn’t cook before they married?  Why does he expect her to cook now?  Anyone think that moms or dads should learn how to cook for the sake of the kids?  Is it healthier when you cook your own meals?  Is takeout better?

I’m glad Kristen accepted Ramona’s apology. But she really needs to let things go. Kristen is unhappy. I told her in the Berkshires that she provoked Ramona. She clearly enjoys humiliating Ramona because she’s rubbing Ramona’s nose in it. One person is not going to change Ramona, especially not like this. You want a reaction from Ramona? You’re going to get one.

Ramona is the easiest target.  She makes so many faux pas with strangers yet she still manages to have long term friends.

Ramona: I Never Called Kristen a Bad Mom

Where should I begin?

The main reason I left the Berkshires is that I was uncomfortable around Kristen.

Don’t forget the fabulous Hamptons party!

Heather had put so much effort into the weekend that I did not want to ruin everyone else’s time.

They had a better time when you left.

One thing everyone knows about me I have no trouble saying and doing what I want — sometimes to my detriment. If I wanted to leave for a party in the Hamptons (which I was sponsoring with my Ramona Pinot), I would have absolutely no problem telling them and excusing myself from the remainder of the weekend. How many times do I have to say the main reason I left the Berkshires is that I was uncomfortable around Kristen?

At least two. Okay, I think you don’t have trouble saying anything rude or insulting whether you mean to or not.  Why not just tell them you are uncomfortable around Kristen?

She and I were not making up, and it was not relaxing being around her. My intention was never to hurt her. But if you throw something you don’t know where it can end up — so it is always wrong to throw an object.

You screwed yourself.

After breakfast, I called my friend to pick me up and then I went in the woods. I always intended to leave after our walk.

Going into the woods jarred me and brought back bad memories. Those were not fake or crocodile tears. I never ever expected this reaction from myself.

I was very disappointed the ladies did not get this, especially Carole who saw me cry first-hand.

LuAnn after all these years has me pegged in certain areas. I thought it was quite clever of her that she blocked me in. So I could not leave — or should I say flee?

It would have been funny if you tried to move her or crawl under the table.

Should I have stayed and stuck it out in the Berkshires? I don’t know, perhaps. . .But at that time it felt better for to me to leave, so I did.

Leaving wasn’t the problem.  They had wanted you to communicate the truth.

I met Kristen for tea as I wanted to clear the air and tell her how genuinely sorry I was. I laughed out of nervousness — it was either that or cry.

Grin and bear it sweetie.

It was an accident! I NEVER meant to hurt her. It was plastic and bruised the inside of her lip — which bled.

It became apparent that Kristen and I were not going to resolve everything between us at tea. I never said Kristen was a bad mom, so I am confused why she thought I implied that? I am not perfect. People make mistakes, and I wanted her forgiveness.

Kristen wasn’t ready to fully accept my apology and that is her choice. I will end by saying my behavior towards Kristen in the canoe was inexcusable and un-ladylike.

I think the ladies would be relieved if they don’t see a repeat of this behavior.

  5. ladebra says:

    Happy Birthday Trudie and Rebecca! How’s that move coming along Rebecca? Hope you are all settled in.

    Thank you for the blog Ramonacoaster. Always enjoy reading your take on their spin. 😀

    I’m fasting before lab tests (routine, no worries, diabetes sucks) and all I see on TV is Barbeque recipes, Barbeque food, food and more food. I can do this lol.

    Hope everyone is doing exactly what you want to and having a great time.

    • ladebra says:

      Funny

    • Powell says:

      Ladebra I’m sorry you have to fast. Isn’t that the way? You can’t eat & all you see is food on tv and in magazines. You’ll pull thru it.

      • ladebra says:

        All done! I inhaled an egg McMuffin on the drive home – it was the first food I saw. I was planning everything I could eat – pancakes, bacon, grits, fruit, juice, eggs, cinnamon buns – and now I’m not hungry and none of that is getting made. And I feel like I dodged a 2,000 calorie bullet !

  6. Veena (NMD) says:

    Happy Birthday Trudy and Rebecca.

    New blog on our Rome neighborhood. I got yelled at by a gypsy while taking photos – it was a little scary.

    • BB says:

      Veena, your adventures in Italy remind me of some stories told to me by a co-worker who was born and raised in Naples. Violent crime is very very rare; however, thievery is a way of life. She was robbed of some jewelry while sleeping once. The robbers didn’t bother her, just snuck in and stole. Also, it’s very common for thieves to steal purses right from cars stopped in traffic. As for the gypsies, she said it was common for them to drug their young children so they would sit quietly all day while the mom begged for money to help her sick child. I had forgotten about them until now.

      Also, she had a brother who was in his thirties still living at home with mom and had no intention of settling down and getting married. She said this was also common as the boys were spoiled and had no incentive to get married because the modern women wouldn’t coddle them like mamma. lol.

      Sorry if this is a double post. It didn’t take the first time.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Yikes ! Naples is the main city for the Italian mafia – from Italy – not Italian – American.
        That stealing from a car used to and still, happens in South America where my mom is from. You have to keep everything away from the windows when you’re in a car !

        Veena stay safe ! I hate to say but the Italians were the rudest to us big travel group when we did the all over Europe trip – but this was like 12 years ago or so. They tried to jip us BIG on any touristy costs ….
        And Italian men still whistle at women I think. My mother warned me about that. Back then they’d actually touch your butts.

        Thanks for the updates.

    • Powell says:

      Ooh gosh. Be careful. Thks as always. 🙂

    • Powell says:

      Thks for posting it BB. MTH I bet Lucy about drives you mad w/her squeaky toy. 🙂 She can move fast too. Does that tire her out at the end of the day? She’s looking really good. And yes Lucy is the boss. You just supply the food and pay the bills. Thks for the updates. 🙂

      • MelTheHound says:

        Surprisingly enough, I don’t mind the squeaks.. It’s nice to have her making some noise.. Melvin was never into toys and was more of a carpet speed bump than anything else…

    Happy Birthday Trudie and Rebecca 😀

    Good morning everyone. Happy Birthday Trudie and Rebecca!

  11. Cityside says:

    I guess I am on the “wrong” side of this…I think they are all a bunch of bitches thinking they have any right to give Ramona an intervention. Still don’t like Luann, don’t like Kristen, don’t like Holla whatever her name is. I am not condoning the plastic glass throwing incident, didn’t like the spa incident either, however these women are not Ramona’s friends and they are a bunch of bitches thinking they have any business intervening.
    If my friends tried to corner me I would cut a bitch.

    • ladebra says:

      Well said. You know Bravo loves a good row at a sit down meal.

    • BB says:

      Hey City. How the heck are ya? What is it with housewives and their “interventions” anyway? I thought the purpose of interventions was to try to help someone (like in cases of substance abuse and the like). Does anyone believe these “interventions” are done for the good of the person? Not likely. I’d say revenge, intimidation, payback and embarrassment are the main objectives.

      • Cityside says:

        Doing good. Trying to convince my husband that it will be fine if (when) I retire in Sept or Dec to watch the baby.

  15. Orson says:

    Well, “Kimye” got married. Who’s running the pool on how long it lasts?

  16. ladebra says:

    Hey Orson, I have a little piece of trivia just for you 🙂

    • ladebra says:

      I saw this and immediately thought “Orson might like to know this!” So if you don’t, sorry!

      • Orson says:

        Gosh, I’m flattered you thought of me. Thank you. And yeah, it’s the useless sort of trivia that’s nice to know, isn’t it?

  17. ladebra says:

    Lainey I’m thinking of you and your mom this morning and sending love and light your way. Hope the surgery and prognosis are all good news.

  18. iceNfire says:

    Orphan Black – Helena! Crazy Clone Helena drunk and horny in a bar! Did anyone see it? Best crazy scenec Ever!

    • ladebra says:

      I’m watching it now Ice! This is a great episode!

    • Powell says:

      Ice that was great. Then when creepy bailed her out, ” Take me to my babies”. 😉

      • iceNfire says:

        Hi Powell – This changes everything.I had a theory about how this show plays out but now that Helena may be a mother she will no longer put Sarah first. I loved when Helena said “I am very good with children” 😛

  19. Eastbayca says:

    Having only read blogs on RHONY (not watching). I have to say this; Ramona leaving the Berkshires for Hampton’s during a girls get together stinks of something that was worked out ahead of time with the producers. The last two episodes sounds like they were planned ahead of time.
    As for Kristen not accepting Ramona’s apology whether she known her two days or two centuries is rather childish.

  20. Dwight Schrute says:

    “Patrick McBride. How cute is he?!?

    He seemed gay.”

    I’m sorry but I don’t realize what these two statements have to do with each other unless you’re saying that someone who is gay cannot be cute.

    • I thought the same thing….how are they mutually exclusive…???

    • chismosa™ says:

      All us New Yorkers are not weird like Ramona – just FYI !

      Thanks for the recaps 🙂
      Carole took time off I see ? Maybe she’s off with Andy for the week/weekend.
