Real Housewives: Ramona Singer, Age 53

Last night's episode featured Ramona's long-awaited debut as a wide-eyed fashion model. She really is turning out to be the star of this season, upstaging Bethenny's pregnancy, Jill's grumpiness, and Kelly's "wisdom."



So let's just start with the good stuff. For an unending loop of poppin' eyes, a gif is here.


And while "Brooklyn Fashion Weekend" did come off as pretty janky (I love that a pile of garbage was parked right next to the red carpet), Jill definitely seemed to have something up her butt, serving up back-handed compliments, confronting people about their Twitter accounts (which she was apparently monitoring), and complaining about everything and anything.


Ramona's explanation (excuse?) for her verbal diarrhea is that she doesn't "edit." Kinda like premium cable. She's the Cinemax version of small talk—naughty yet not obscene.

Also, how contrived was Bethenny's pregnancy test scene? First of all, she had two tests in her tampon drawer that were clearly already taken.


As for Sonja the "sexy pistol"—who was once married to a JP Morgan heir—I think this little montage indicates that she is bound to bring on the crazy in episodes to come. You can get her background info here.
