The Ramona Singer Stinger has come out to play!
The Real Housewives of New York OG shared her extremely unfiltered thoughts on Bravo’s plan to create a spinoff featuring “legacy” cast members of the New York Housewives franchise.
“I’ve been there for a long time. I mean, never say no, never say never,” Ramona told host Carlos King on an episode of his “Reality with the King” podcast. “But I also feel like the ‘Legacy’ [show], how could it be really good? The people they are gonna bring back are the people they didn’t want to renew anyways.”
She quipped, “So now what? Are you gonna call it ‘The Loser Show,’ the ‘Loser Legacy’?”
Ramona, who is the only New York Housewife to remain full-time for all thirteen seasons of the franchise, is learning to adjust to life without the Bravo cameras following her every move since the last episode of RHONY aired in September 2021.
“I don’t know if I want to do it again … for a lot of reasons. I’m much calmer now that I haven’t done the show,” Ramona explained. “I know this is an oxymoron, but I really don’t like being recognized.”
The longtime reality TV star insists she’s loving living life with less exposure.
“All of a sudden, people aren’t bugging me, like, ‘Are you Ramona? I know you’re on a date, but can I have a photo?’ I don’t like all the attention. And guess what? The men I date don’t like all the attention. Even my girlfriends don’t,” she said. “They’ll say, ‘Oh my gosh, Ramona, I used to go out with you, and 20 people would come up to you. And now it’s only one.’ So I don’t like all the attention.”
Ramona also claims that she didn’t enjoy having to interact with the media during her time on RHONY.
“I really don’t like the press. The press stressed me out with all that stuff. That was really, really, very hurtful and made me really unhinged. I mean, unhinged,” she confessed. “And I realize now I’m so much more relaxed. All my friends say I’m 50 percent more calmer. I still have high energy, but I’m not as [much of a ] hard-ass. There’s something more gentle, and I’m actually able to date now in a better way.”
