After Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel shared one of the most awkward and tense conversations we've seen in quite some time on The Real Housewives of New York City during that outing in the Hamptons, it's clear that the ladies are still not on the same page. And it's going to be some time before they are able to get to a better place.
"It's gonna be very intertesting for the viewers to see how the relationship gets resolved between Bethenny and I — dramatic to say the least," Ramona recently told The Daily Dish. "Hey, we're Housewives right?"
Ramona thinks part of her issues with Bethenny stem from the Skinnygirl mogul not really understanding her. She added, "I have friends for 20, 30 years. I mean they know me with the biggest heart of gold. I mean people will tell me, 'My gosh, Ramona, you've gone through so many things and yet you're always there for and you're always concerned.' Somehow for some reason, Bethenny doesn't get that part about me. But, you know, it is what it is and you'll have to see what happens on the show to see how it gets resolved."
In looking back on the incident (in which Ramona asked Bethenny if she's had a conversation with her 6-year-old daughter about appearing topless in a movie in the '90s), she does see one thing she did that may have caused Bethenny to become agitated with her.
"I think all of us on the show that have children, our children come No. 1. So I was kind of surprised by Bethenny's reaction when I was bringing up her daughter because I wasn't bringing up her daughter to talk about her daughter. But I just came back from Avery, visiting her at college [and] having a special experience with her. And then I'm out of concern, like mommy to mommy, 'Hey, what's going on with you and your daughter and this school because things like have an impact?' I know when I'm in the press for something that's negative, hey Avery's friends can read it," Ramona explained. "People talk, and it came out of concern, not to put her on the spot or to embarrass her. And I was really shocked at her reaction, how things all turned out. Of course, I admit my delivery might not have been the best but, hey, what can I say?"
So, how does she think Bethenny could have handled the situation better? "Bethenny got defensive and I just realized now with her she's the type of a girlfriend that you can never bring up anything that's a slight bit unpleasant unless she brings it up first," she said. "Bethenny could have very simply said, 'Hey, Ramona things are good. Don't worry.' 'Hey, Ramona, I don't want to discuss it right now.' Instead she got very snappy and very pitbull with me and she took it all the wrong way. I mean that was her head trip though, not mine."
