Birthday dinners are fun most of the time, for us ordinary folks anyway. But a birthday party slash dinner (or any other celebration) on the Real Housewives of New York usually means alcohol-fueled drama, cat fights and maybe some crying.
And this time around, Heather Thomson inadvertently started the drama ball going by complimenting Ramona Singer.
A trailer for the next episode of RHONY shows Dorinda Medley hosting a small birthday dinner for her guests Ramona, Heather and Luann de Lesseps.
While the ladies were reminiscing about how far they’ve come, Heather complimented Ramona, telling her that she has changed.
“In the three years I’ve known you, there’s been a metamorphosis,” Heather says.
But Ramona apparently wasn’t happy to be told that she has changed and told Heather that “Dorinda always saw me the way I was.”
The 56-year-old housewife then called out Heather and Luann for the wall they have when she’s around them and warned the duo that she’s not inclined to break it down for them.
Obviously tired of Ramona’s drama, Heather tries to neutralize the escalating situation by telling her to chill out.
“What I’m trying to say to you is we did not get off on the right foot together,” Heather explained. “I have seen a lot of change and growth in you as a person.”
But instead of taking it as face value, Ramona decides to ignore it and focus all her “sweet” attention on the birthday girl.
It doesn’t look that Dorinda was buying what Ramona was selling though.
It was a bit of a letdown that Ramona had to resort to her catty ways, especially since she did seem to have become more at peace with herself when season 7 started.
On the other hand, if the old Ramona doesn’t surface every now and then, who would provide the meaningless drama on the show?
