Ramona Singer was quick to call out the “divas” at The Real Housewives of New York Season 12 reunion. It’s the first in-person reunion amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Andy Cohen returned as his role as host of the drama-filled special. Bravo had to find a way to safely film the RHONY cast.
Andy calls it the “best reunion yet.” But Ramona Singer still wasn’t happy. She didn’t take long to call out some of her co-stars. She bashed Luann de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan for arriving late to the taping. The RHONY star called them a pair of “divas” on her Instagram Stories.
RHONY star bashes her fellow co-stars
Bravo taped its first-ever in-person reunion amid the COVID-19 pandemic. On Wednesday, August 5, the Real Housewives of New York City met face-to-face for the Season 12 reunion, as per People. Dorinda Medley, Leah McSweeney, Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, and Tinsley Mortimer went to the Oheka Castle in Huntington on Long Island, according to New York Post’s Page Six report.
Tinsley left the show midseason to move to Chicago to be closer to her now-fiancé Scott Kluth. However, she flew in for the taping while complying with quarantining rules. Most of the RHONY stars shared their thoughts on the reunion on Instagram. But no one was more express than Ramona, who slammed two of her co-stars for acting like “divas.”
“So I’m here at the studio waiting to film. But guess what? Guess who’s an hour late? Sonja Morgan and Luann,” she said while wearing a face shield in her Instagram Story. “I mean, really girls? This is so disrespectful. The fact that we could do a reunion in person was incredible, they have such great staff here, and they’re holding us up by a whole entire hour. If I can get up, you sure as hell can get up, and I’m so upset with them.”
In a follow-up post, Ramona posted a photo of herself in her dressing room. She snapped a selfie of herself wearing the plastic face covering. She tagged both Luann and Sonja’s names along with the caption, “An hour late the divas.”
Ramona Singer may not be happy, but Andy Cohen sure is
Despite the RHONY star’s gripes, host Andy Cohen was excited about the in-person reunion. He also took to Instagram to tease the upcoming episode with his followers. He shared several videos and photos of himself in one of his signature suits, this time accessorized with a face mask.
“About to shoot our IN PERSON RHONY Reunion!!” Andy exclaimed. “Putting on a suit and tie never felt so good…. Gonna be a great day!”
On his Instagram Story, Andy teased that the reunion is “unlike anything we’ve ever done before.” Not only has the location changed, but so has the setup. Face masks and hand sanitizer was available on hand. Both Andy and the RHONY cast members had to follow social distancing protocols. That means no hugs or face-to-face confrontations.
Even Luann was satisfied with the reunion. She took to her Instagram Story to exclaim, “Best reunion yet.”
Ramona Singer may not have been happy with the “divas,” but it looks like the reunion went well.
The Real Housewives of New York City airs Thursday nights at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
