New York housewife Ramona Singer thought she had a thing going by over-promoting her own brand of Pinot Grigio wine on her reality TV show. Now she’s trying to convince everyone she’s not a drunk.
Her catty co-stars were quick to speculate about Ramona’s sobriety, especially after she acted a bit daffy in a couple of installments.
It’s like Kelly Bensimon was portrayed as a crazy, menopausal mensch in Season 3’s episode “Sun, Sand and Psychosis” when the girls took a vacation to St. John’s.
Say what you will about Bensimon’s sanity, her confrontation with Bethenny Frankel still reigns as the highest rated episode in New York Housewives history. More than 2.4 million viewers watched.
Too bad Kelly can’t bottle that.
Now, of course, Kelly is her old, sane boring self again, and Ramona is getting the crazy treatment.
Ramona’s “drinking problem” was a hot topic during the two-part reunion show.
Now Ramona is trying to play down her penchant for wine even before lunch.
“I have been drinking pinot grigio since the day the show started, and maybe some people this year have a little problem because this season I have ‘Ramona Pinot Grigio,’ but I embrace all my products,” Ramona explained.
“I don’t drink any more or less than I have for the past four years, or more than anyone else,” she insists.
“I don’t have a problem.”
Besides, she adds, look how much housewife LuAnn de Lesseps drinks. Like that justifies everything.
Serves her right for so shamelessly promoting her branded product on the show.
