Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer Face Off

This week on The Real Housewives of New York City, Bethenny Frankel finally came face-to-face with Ramona Singer after their major blow-up in the Berkshires, as the ladies discussed their trip to Mexico at a dinner hosted by Dorinda Medley.

Ramona’s attack on Bethenny in the Berkshires was quite unforgettable, when she accused Frankel of sleeping her way to the top and questioning her business sales.

“You’re an opportunist. You use people,” Singer said in a prior episode. “You are so f*cking broken you don’t even see it. And I feel sorry for you. I actually do care for you. You’re a bitch. You’re the Bethenny bitchy witch, that’s who you are.”

Since the news of Bethenny’s ex-husband’s arrest went public, Ramona had been trying to reach out to Bethenny and apologize. “I don’t want my relationship to be over with Bethenny and I know unless I make these gradual steps to reach out to her in a non-confrontational way that maybe we can make strides,” Singer explained during this week’s episode. “But if I don’t then it’s definitely over, and I don’t want it to be over. ”

Back at Dorinda’s dinner, Bethenny tried to approach Ramona to talk to her about the trip one-on-one at the table. Frankel explained she thought Singer was “disingenuous” for texting supportive words to Frankel while still making “nasty” comments about her business.

“Let’s talk about the fact that you came back to me with things that you said that were negative,” Ramona fired back. “I’m not going to go tit for tat, but you came back to me with a lot of negative things you said about things I’ve done in business. How do you think that made me feel?”

Ramona continued, “I support my family,” Singer said. “I gave half my money to my husband who I was married to for 30 years. You were only married for two. Talk to me when you’ve been married for 30 years!” she said. “My f*cking heart was cut out, my legs, my arms. So don’t even tell me and try to compare your life to mine. Don’t. Don’t. Just don’t, Bethenny. Have more respect for me. Have more respect and more sympathy. It’s not always about you.”

“The waterworks are not of interest to me. You’re not having a conversation, you’re screaming,” Bethenny replied, adding that Ramona was no longer invited on the trip. But Ramona insisted she was coming anyway.

“It’s a group trip — I just won’t come to the tequila party,” Ramona said, explaining that she would skip B’s planned Skinnygirl-sponsored event and still attend the rest of the vacation. “It’s a group trip, so I’m coming!”

“I always have a great trip with these girls,” she later told the cameras. “I’m not going to let Bethenny take that away from me. I’m going to have fun no matter what.”

After being reminded of some other things she said in the Berkshires that she may not have remembered, Ramona kept apologizing. “You speak very factually, very superficially, but you just don’t go into the heart and the soul,” she said. “And that’s okay. That’s who I am, that’s not who you are. That’s where we are.”

Ramona added, “Yes, we had a fight. People have fights. That’s life, Bethenny. That’s what life is,” she said. “I’ve been on this planet a little bit longer than you and you know what, people do fight. And you get over it. And you can’t harbor this ill-will. I don’t need negative energy. I care for you, in a sense, but I realize you don’t like to be cared for. I’m the mothering type — you don’t want me to mother you. You want to be your own person. I get it.”

Bethenny started to soften. “Here’s the thing Ramona. My opinion is that you’ve done some pretty nasty and malicious things to me. Like, really,” she said. “Let’s make a pack that we will not say nasty things about each other and be mean and just move forward. That’s it.”

But Bethenny wasn’t buying what Ramona had said. “I just agreed to a bag of bullsh*t,” Frankel said. “Like, this is a bag of hot steamy bullsh*t.”

  1. Ramona needs to admit to herself the problem she has with Bethenny and then she can let it go! WHATEVER THE HELL IT IS, LET IT GO!!!

  2. Ramona is a dreadful person. She has absolutely no manners no class she has no idea how to treat people. I cringe watching her especially when the group are on a trip and are staying in a hotel. The way she treats the staff is perfectly disgraceful so embarrassing to watch. Why on earth is she allowed to behave like this. Bethany seems to be the only person who is willing to stand up to her. Poor Mario is well out of it. Ramona do yourself a favour and take a long hard look at yourself then be honest WOULD YOU LIKE ANYONE TO TREAT YOU THE WAY YOU TREAT OTHER PEOPLE.

    1. Not only does she treat hotel and restaurant staff terribly but she orders her friends around telling them to get her water, wine, etc. And she always has to have the biggest and best room.

  3. Ramona is nuts, but she is right. Bethenny screamed and screeched and said dreadful things to Lu last year. Some of her fans felt it was deserved, because Luann is a “hypocrite”. This year, Ramona told Bethenny she used people to get where she is, including past boyfriends and her ex husband, doesn’t care about anyone but herself, and all she has now is her brand, which is failing. All true …but Bethenny can’t handle the truth when it is directed at herself…and now wants to punish Ramona and cut her out of the show. She did the same thing with Sonja over Tipsy Girl, and John over Skinnycow. John disappeared, and Sonja groveled and begged for forgiveness, but Ramona won’t back down… or be cut out. Good for her. I hope the rest of the cast and crew stay back with Ramona on “Skinny Tequila Day’, and Beth can plug her brand to an empty room…or Carole.

  4. I’m with Margaret on this one. Bethenny is no saint, but honestly I can’t find one redeeming quality in Ramona. Were I the other girls I would be cringing at almost everything she says and does, and I would just rail on her if she treated staff the way she does in my presence. I think for the sake of U.S.-foreign relations she shouldn’t be allowed out of the country.

  5. Ramona – I don’t feel she is a nice lady. Bethany – I don’t feel she is a nice lady….. there you go – they deserve each other.

  6. They say you can tell how a person really is by the way they treat the people waiting on them and Ramona is awful, I haven’t seen Bethany do this never mind how they speak to each other, Ramona had been nasty since day one

  7. Ramona is just unhinged. I mean, when someone tells you they don’t want you to come on their trip, who says too bad, I’m coming?! WHO DOES THAT?!!!!

  8. The truth is, I don’t take any of these women seriously enough to pay any of these fights any mind. They change alliances faster than a toddler changes pull-up pants, so I’m sure this too, shall pass.

  9. The big bag of steamy bulls**t BF is talking about us anyone thinking they can have a REAL relationship with her! Good luck with that! Come on Ramona! You said it.. she’s so BROKEN she’s completely clueless to who and what she is.. but America sees it! She’s always fighting with someone, you can never do enough, be enough or care enough, she will always turn on you! So stop trying already! The only truthometer that exists in her world is her own! She sits on the mountain of bullsh**t she has created as the all unwise one who has all the answers for everyone else’s life but her own!
