A new week of The Real Housewives of New York, a new drama. On Monday’s episode (Season 5, Episode 8: “Blinded by the Wine”) there was a lot of focus put on the surprise wine tasting LuAnn de Lesseps sprung on Ramona Singer. Aviva Drescher thought it was mean-spirited, while many of the other housewives didn't agree. Now LuAnn herself is weighing on via her Bravo blog.

"Even though Ramona drives me crazy sometimes, I've never completely disliked her," LuAnn confesses. "We have a certain amount of respect for each other even when we don't agree."

She goes on to say that When we had Ramona blindly test her own wine, it was to have fun, not to embarrass her," noting that Ramona "analyzed her wine perfectly."

LuAnn seems to blame Aviva and Ramona's hubby Mario Singer for turning Ramona against her yet again. "[Ramona] had a good time at the party and it wasn't until Mario and the Dreschers got her all worked up that she felt like we did something wrong."

What do you think: Was Ramona already annoyed at LuAnn, or was her mind really changed by Aviva and Maria?

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