A few members of the new RHONY cast got a taste of life on the Ramona coaster when they met RHONY OG Ramona Singer! Get the scoop!
It’s not surprising to hear that RHONY OG Ramona Singer didn’t exactly embrace the fresh, new faces of the New York Housewives franchise when meeting them.
On Sunday, the Real Housewives of New York cast, including Jenna Lyons, Sai de Silva, Jessel Taank, Brynn Whitfield, Erin Lichy, and Ubah Hassan, appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, where two members of the cast reflected on their experiences meeting Ramona Singer. It’s safe to say they got a taste of the Singer stinger.
RHONY cast members Sai de Silva and Ubah Hasson had similar yet different experiences when meeting Ramona Singer, who starred in the Real Housewives of New York franchise from seasons 1 through 13 until Bravo put the franchise on pause in 2021.
Ubah seemed to have a mostly positive experience meeting the OG New York housewife. Even though, in typical Ramona fashion, she insinuated that Ubah won’t be able to find a husband after joining Real Housewives of New York. Yikes.
“First of all, she’s very beautiful, like, drop dead and gorgeous. She just asked, ‘You’re so pretty. Are you married?’ And I was like, ‘No.’ She goes, ‘Oh honey, after this show, forget it,’ [meaning] I’m not gonna get married,” Ubah shared.
As for Sai, her encounter with Ramona was much more awkward and less friendly. According to Sai, she ran into Ramona at Art Basel in Miami, and Ramona was a “total b-tch” towards her during the meeting.
“Ramona was a total b-tch to me at Art Basel. I introduced myself. That didn’t go really well,” Sai confessed on WWHL. “She treated me like not a good fan, and then after that, I proceeded to say, ‘Oh, I just wanted to introduce myself. I’m on the reboot, the new era.’ She said, ‘Hey, good luck, you’re gonna need it.’”
Not too long ago, Ramona gave her thoughts on the RHONY reboot and its new cast while appearing on Melissa Gorga’s On Display podcast. Let’s just say Ramona still seems a little bitter over the reboot and Bravo kicking her to the curb.
“It’s a different era,” said Ramona. “Bravo knows what they’re doing.”
From what it seems, Ubah and Sai are the only members of the New York cast who have been stung by the Singer stinger. In June, the new RHONY cast chatted with Cosmopolitan, where they discussed Ramona’s “bitchy” behavior towards the new cast.
Erin Dana Lichy revealed she also had a bad experience with Ramona, saying, “I think she was mean to a lot of people.”
Jenna Lyons, on the other hand, added that Ramona was “definitely salty.”
And despite Ramona’s comment that Ubah will die alone after joining the RHONY cast, Ubah insists she found the OG Housewife “funny.”
“You might think it was mean, but it was hilarious,” Ubah quipped.
The Real Housewives of New York airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
