Last night was just the start of Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer’s feud on The Real Housewives of New York City. According to their co-star Carole Radziwill, their petty arguments are set to dominate the rest of this season’s drama.
Things really kicked off on last night’s episode when Ramona confronted Bethenny over her sex-tape past and in a recent interview with E! News, Carole explains that their feud goes back almost a decade and isn’t about to slow down any time soon. “Ramona last season was like light and bright. Light and bright Ramona,” Carole explains. “I think this season she goes in hard a few times towards Bethenny and it was a little of a surprise.”
“They’ve known each other for a long time and I think some of her feelings that she’s harbored for a very long time come out this season,” she continues. “It will be interesting because they could flashback in the show to 10 years ago when Bethenny was definitely in a different place in her life, trying to make her rent every month, and Ramona was happily married. I was surprised by some of the arguments that Ramona was having with Bethenny.”
As the gossip site points out, Ramona also recently implied that she and Bethenny are far from friendly. “Well, Bethenny and I have probably the most…explosive fight ever,” she teased about RHONY season 8. “I never, ever in my life had a situation with that with any girlfriend…It kind of tortured my soul a little bit and you’ll have to see what happened. It was pretty crazy. Pretty crazy.”
Ramona seems to be getting a hard time on social media about last night’s episode but in all honesty, she made some great points. Bethenny can certainly dish it out — remember how poorly she treated Luann de Lesseps last season? — but can’t seem to take it in return. While she definitely brings a lot to the show, she also brings with her double standards and it looks like Ramona, along with a lot of viewers, are simply over it.
Regardless of where this goes, we’re definitely here for Ramona vs. Bethenny.
