Part one of the Real Housewives of New York City reunion airs tonight and Ramona Singer is promising viewers a lot of drama.
“There were so many bombshells [at the reunion], my head was spinning. It took me two weeks to recover,” she said.
Singer tells ET that the cast arrived at 6AM and didn’t wrap until 9:30PM, with just a one-hour break during the “grueling” day.
Ramona says Bethenny Frankel had a fever that day, but that didn’t stop her from bringing the heat. “For not feeling well, she really went off the rails,” Singer says. Frankel tells ET this was her most difficult reunion ever for the show. “I didn’t enjoy it at all,” she says. “Last year, we all went to dinner afterwards. This year ended differently.”
Bethenny says she’s always lived her life honestly on the show, but says that’s not true for some of the other women. “You have 50 percent of the cast that has a whole taboo, police line, do-not-cross section of their life that is not discussed on camera and never has been,” she says. “For legal issues and liability issues, Bravo doesn’t need to bring it up. It’s a difficult line to ride and that may be why I don’t come back.”
During the reunion, Frankel accuses Jules Wainstein, who is splitting from husband Michael, of planning to get divorced before the season even began. But Luann de Lesseps tells the site she doesn’t buy that theory. “I think Jules came into the show very much married,” she says. “They looked very much together. I was surprised, like everybody else, to hear.”
And although de Lesseps’ engagement and Tom’s cheating scandal was a big storyline this season, she seems to be pleased with how the reunion went. “I actually like the reunion because you get to really tell your side of the story,” she says. “There’s redemption. There’s starting over.”
Frankel previously revealed that she might not be back to the show because of how intense the reunion was. “Something very dramatic happened at the reunion to question my integrity,” she reveals. “If someone questions my business or my integrity, I take it really seriously; I don’t just kind of gloss over it. So, I think maybe the ‘fun and light’ Bethenny that people expect, with the quips and the comebacks, wasn’t there.”
