The Real Housewives of New York's Ramona Singer is talking to The Insider about the first of the show's reunion specials which aired last night on Bravo, specifically her emotional spat with cast member Aviva Drescher.
Although Aviva apologized to Ramona as well as Sonja Morgan for some of her particularly nasty remarks on the show (such as calling them "white trash"), clearly, Ramona wasn't having it.
"It was very difficult for me to sit on that couch opposite Aviva," Ramona admits. "It was very uncomfortable. I don't know why she has such a problem with me. I think a lot of it is displaced anger. I only wish her the best and we'll see where it goes. I know she apologized to me, and I'm taking it in, but at this point she needs to prove herself to me."
She also adamantly denies Aviva's claim on the show that she and Sonja have drinking problems.
"Well Aviva basically lies -- I don't really take anything she says seriously," Ramona tells The Insider. "She lies, lies, lies as Sonja says. You know, I do everything in moderation. I'm 50-something -- people are shocked -- actually I'll be 56 this year. I have great skin from my skin care, I work out regularly, I eat well and I drink in moderation, so."
Ramona also credits her calm attitude during the reunion special to being busy with her successful wine business.
"Probably one of the reasons I was very calm during the reunion was I was traveling my butt off -- I had just [flown] to Minneapolis to the mall there to launch my Ramona Red in the state, and the Ramona Red just came out last week and it's doing really well, and I'm very excited about it," she smiles.
Check out the video to see why she feels Aviva needs to "let go of her past and go forward."
The second part of The Real Housewives of New York City's reunion airs next Monday at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
