Ramona Singer Insults Kristen Taekman's Intelligence On 'The Real Housewives Of New York' Which Gives Us A Serious Case Of Deja Vu
Did I unknowingly get in a DeLorean and travel back in time to 2014 for some reason? That's what it felt like during Tuesday night's episode of The Real Housewives of New York City when Ramona Singer insinuated that Kristen Taekman was being dumb. Ah, just like old times.
As sad as it was to see Ramona insult Kristen's intelligence, she kind of deserved it. Of course this had to do with the drama that has been brewing between Kristen and Bethenny Frankel for the past couple of episodes.
Ramona didn't like the way Kristen essentially attacked Bethenny over the fact that she might have to leave the ladies' upcoming trip to Turks and Caicos early to attend her daughter's recital while the frenemies had all gathered for Luann de Lesseps' photo shoot for her clothing line. She felt that Kristen needed to be more sensitive considering all of the personal issues Bethenny is currently dealing with. Kristen responded by saying she didn't know what Bethenny or Ramona were going through since they never tell her anything. And that's when Ramona asked how dumb Kristen could be because it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see all of the emotional turmoil that Ramona and Bethenny are going through.
See what I mean? That was a really dumb thing to say, Kristen. Ramona and Bethenny have both been going through ugly, high-profile divorces that have unfortunately been playing out in the press. How could you not know what they're going through when the entire world does?
This brawl between Ramona and Kristen may have seemed to come out of nowhere for this season, but all in all, it felt kind of right. That's because Ramona and Kristen butted heads many times during Season 6 of RHONY, which came to a head when Ramona threw a wine glass at Kristen's face. Ramona and Kristen never see eye to eye, so it's only natural for them to just always be fighting.
No wine glasses were thrown this time, which is something Kristen made sure to point out. What a great nod to all RHONY fans. I have to give Kristen props for that move.
While all of this craziness was breaking out, Ramona said something very astute during her confessional interview. She believes Kristen is acting this way toward her and Bethenny this season because she's not really fitting in very well with the other Housewives, who all seem to have their own friendships within the larger group of women.
That seems to be very true. Kristen even said that she felt like everyone at Ramona's party was freezing her out during last Tuesday night's episode. The only person Kristen is really friendly with is Heather Thomson, and even they don't seem to be as tight anymore, which may be because they also had a bit of a feud in Season 6.
It seems like Kristen especially wants to be friends with Bethenny and possibly get some professional advice from her. However, Bethenny is just not having it. Kristen and Bethenny will go at it once again during next Tuesday night's episode, and from the looks of it, I don't think we should expect anything to change.
