The Big Apple babes are back! Season 11 of The Real Housewives of New York has begun airing and we’re in for a crazy ride. Ramona Singer is the OG of the RHONY and she has a lot to say about her fellow co-stars and this season. Ramona recently weighed in on fellow OG’s, Luann De Lesseps and Bethenny Frankel, and how their personal hardships have affected the cast and the show!
In an interview with Bravo’s The Daily Dish podcast, Ramona said, “I think last season the whole drama between Bethenny [Frankel] and Carole [Radziwill] really did not affect the cast well so it was good that this year Bethenny did not come in with negative energy because sometimes she can be very tough. I’m not saying I can’t be tough but she can be really tough, and she softened because of the things that happened in her personal life. I know we all felt badly for her for her loss, for her tragic loss, we felt terrible for her.” Ramona addressed how the passing of Bethenny’s boyfriend, Dennis Shields, really took a toll on Bethenny. He sadly passed away in August of 2018.
Luann has also gone through tough times on the show. Luann had to miss the season 10 reunion because she was in rehab. Ramona explained, “And Luann too, she came back from two stints at rehab and we felt bad for her. So I think them showing, Bethenny and Luann, such vulnerability within themselves made us all feel vulnerable. And we all kind of broke down our barriers. That’s what you’re going to see; you’re going to see us more real than ever in my opinion.”
I’m so glad that the RHONY is back on! I definitely think that everything that Bethenny and Luann have gone through is going to affect them, as well as the cast and the show. How could it not? This is a show about their personal lives. I’m glad to hear that the cast is all being vulnerable and supportive during the hard times. We know a lot of drama is coming this season, though. Stay tuned, loves!
