Real Housewives of New York

Ramona Singer Responds to Wild St. Barts Partying and Diva Accusations: “We Were Exhausted” – Exclusive

While it’s no secret the Real Housewives of New York cast trip to St. Barts was a nightmare, Ramona Singer is fighting back against a report claiming she and partner in crime Sonja Morgan made things even worse by refusing to film when asked and generally engaging in total naked debauchery.

In a story published yesterday by the New York Daily News, an unnamed source told the paper that, after becoming heavily intoxicated, Ramona and Sonja “locked themselves in a room and locked the crew out.” The incident reportedly offended the crew so much, producers gave the women a lecture on their manners. Finally, the story also accuses Sonja of “straddling cameras naked.”

Not true, says Ramona. Not a word of it.

“The day we arrived in St. Barts, we worked non-stop from 4 a.m. until 11 p.m.,” Ramona exclusively tells Wetpaint Entertainment. “Typically, the cast is given half a day to recover from traveling. That didn’t happen in this case.”

After the 19-hour workday, Ramona says all the women were too pooped to continue. “Four of us – LuAnn, Heather, Sonja and I – retired to my room and requested not to film anymore. We were exhausted. Carole spent the rest of the evening with Russ and Aviva wasn’t there because she had not arrived yet.”

Hear that, mysterious RHONY source? Ramona says you've got your facts all wrong!

The Real Housewives of New York airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
