As The Real Housewives of New York fans know, there’s almost nothing Ramona Singer won’t show on air. She proved it again on the last episode (Season 5, Episode 12: "All How You Spin It"), when she underwent a butt-sculpting procedure — performed on camera — by Dr. Sharon Giese.

Taking a break from her busy wine-signing tour (she was in Lemoyne, PA when she spoke to us, but will be in Michigan all next week) Ramona chatted with Wetpaint Entertainment in an exclusive interview about why she loves the procedure, and whether or not she thinks she’ll ever go under the knife!

Wetpaint Entertainment: What made you want to do it?
Ramona Singer: Well the thing is, I work out and I eat healthy but like any other woman, I do less in the winter. I’ll work out maybe only once or twice a week. I eat more — especially during the holidays — and I gain weight.

In this instance, I had to get into a bikini [for the upcoming St. Bart’s trip] and I wanted to look as good as possible, and I know there are a lot of different things you can try before you opt for surgery.

Has Vela Shape become something you do regularly?
Yes. It really firms you up. And when I start to feel like I’m looking better, it affects everything. I eat better and I workout more. It really motivates me to get healthier.

What are your trouble spots?
For me, the hardest parts to maintain are my stomach and my butt.

Is there a point at which you could see yourself getting surgery?
You know what? I think if you feel good about something you should do it. Down the road, I’m open to anything, but I don’t think that I’ll need it. I don’t mean to brag but I’m getting up there in age and I think I look like I’m in my 40s. So based on how I’m aging, I don’t think I’ll need surgery. But you never know.

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