The friction in Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel's friendship took a turn for the worst on Wednesday's episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, where an aggressive Ramona insulted Bethenny's Skinnygirl brand, accused her of being a user, brought up her "soft core porn" days and accused her of sleeping only with rich guys to get to the top.
"You're an opportunist. You use people," Ramona told Bethenny in the episode. "I accept people for who they are. You are broken. You are so f---- broken you don't even see it. And I feel sorry for you. I love people and I actually do care for you. But you just sat down to attack me, and I'll attack you back."
"The truth came out that you're a bitch," Ramona continued. "You're a bitch. You're the Bethenny bitchy witch, that's who you are."
While Ramona was on attack mode, Bethenny was a little bit calmer though she also didn't run out of retorts. Ultimately, she accused Ramona of being jealous.
"You and I will never speak again. We will never be on the same sidewalk ever again," Bethenny told Ramona, before storming out of Dorinda Medley's Berkshires house. "I wish you the best and I want you to be really happy. I really do."
Unfortunately, it gets more messy. Both Housewives took to their Bravo blog to express their thoughts on the feud and it sounds like things will only go downhill from here.
"I finally know how Ramona feels about me and why, and I simply didn't want to sleep under a roof with her. Leaving was my best decision, and Carole was a great friend to come with me... At Carole's show, I was happy to hear Ramona wanting to steer clear of me. That would be a good policy for life at this point," Bethenny wrote on her blog
"I also thought Ramona did a great job at completely lying about the events of the previous night. Not one iota of how she recalled our discussion is true. She sees the world through her crazy Ramona eyes," she continued.
As expected, Ramona was defensive on her blog as well though she did admit her emotions got the best of her.
"While watching myself back and thinking about all that happened that night at Dorinda's, I truly know that however I behaved--or as I say reacted--to Bethenny was truly a burst of so many things I have wanted to say. I was so frustrated at the way things were going. She didn't even give me an opportunity to explain why I said what I said that night at dinner in the Hamptons. That is so frustrating. So manipulative. Bethenny really knew that she was going to push my buttons enough for me to react the way I did. What I am most sorry about now is that I let it happen. I should have just been as cold and indifferent the way she was. I did think I had a friendship with Bethenny. It may not have been the perfect friendship, but it was a friendship. I think I missed the signals for sure that she really didn't care enough ever to be my friend, except when she needed me or needed something from me. She never really cared about us. It's never one-sided, that is for sure, but certainly not jealously. I have no reason to be jealous of her," Ramona wrote
Whose side are you on?
