Ramona Singer of RHONY seems to be the center of controversy in season 12. Bravo star presented Elyse Slaine to this season’s viewers as a “friend of” after appearing as a guest guest seasons ago. A brand new episode aired after the show, but the friendship of the stars of the reality series may have been broken.
RHONY: Why Is Elyse Upset?
The Real Housewives of New York City took a short break and returned to Bravo on Thursday, July 2. During the Singer’s Daughter episode, Avery feels herself in the background, which seems to shade Elyse Slaine.
“Mom, stop wasting your energy talking about Elyse,” she hears Avery saying as Singer makes her confessional from quarantine. “I can hear you telling all your friends. You can’t get enough of them.” It’s like it’s annoying.”
When Elyse Slaine watched the episode with the fans, she was confused as to why Avery would talk about her like that. Elyse Slaine went on Twitter to reveal that she “always liked Avery” and even helped her get her dream job.
“That’s why I was trying to understand, too. I always liked Avery and pushed my husband to mentor her and use her knowledge to get the job she wanted. I wish her well,” Elyse Slaine tweeted. Some fans didn’t think Avery was acting shady, but rather that she stood up to Elyse Slaine, but she’s not convinced.
“I hope so, but nobody seems to think so,” she said in another tweet. “The general opinion is that she was disrespectful. I hope she’s right and everyone else is wrong.” I keep thinking of Avery as the baby having sleepovers with my daughter.”
RHONY: Ramona shades Elyse
The animosity between Ramona Singer and Elyse Slaine has been in turmoil for some time. Ramona Singer recently overshadowed Slaine during an interview, saying she didn’t bring much to the show.
“I don’t think it really brings anything with the mix,” Ramona Singer said in People Now. “I think you can see it doesn’t really fit.”
People have to remember that Ramona Singer and Elyse Slaine were friends for many years off the show. After Bethenny Frankel and Tinsley Mortimer left RHONY, Bravo might have thought it was a good idea to introduce a new friend for the show. Slaine came in to fill a gap in the cast, but Singer says he’s not an official cast member.
“I really didn’t know what to think. I just thought, “Okay, we always like to add new people as possible friends.” She couldn’t even make it as a friend. Bravo doesn’t even call her a friend,” Ramona Singer said. Singer’s comments took Slaine by surprise, as she revealed during an interview with Heavy.
“I was very surprised,” said Slaine. “I kept my cool, and even when asked about her when I was interviewed with Us Weekly, and other magazines and podcasts, I was always very positive about Ramona. I was very surprised that she publicly discredited me”. At the moment, Slaine and Singer are not yet friendly and the former does not know the exact reasons for their relapse.
