Ramona Singer’s “Real Housewives of New York” costars called her “devious” and “greedy” after she “hijacked” the season premiere party to promote her skincare line, Page Six has learned.
We’re told Sonja Morgan and Dorinda Medley boycotted the bash altogether in protest, while Luann De Lesseps only stayed long enough to take pictures before ducking out.
Bethenny Frankel also gave it a miss, although it’s not clear why she stayed away.
The only Housewives to stay and mingle were Tinsley Mortimer and Singer herself.
“That party is for coming together to celebrate a successful season with the other women and all the people — the stylists, the interns, the assistants, the people who loan them clothes, the dog groomer — who support them,” said a show insider, “She hijacked the whole thing and totally killed the spirit of it.”
We’re told that for previous seasons, the Bravo cast had planned the party — which have typically been sprawling affairs — together and they had all submitted their own guest lists.
But we’re told trouble started when Singer sent out an invitation for the Wednesday night event at Pomona on 58th Street.
“The biggest word on the invitation was ‘Ageless’ [Singers’s skincare brand] and the next biggest words were ‘Ramona Singer,’” said the insider.
And when the cast were told that they could only bring a “handful” of guests, they revolted.
“Sonja and Dorinda were so mad at her,” said an insider, “They love her dearly, but they were both furious.”
They added, “At one point [none of the cast] were going.”
One insider was at pains to say, “It’s not about not supporting Ramona and her business. They’re proud of Ramona and they’re proud of all of the cast. But there’s a time and a place. They decided not to go because they would have been wet blankets and they wouldn’t have enjoyed it.”
A guest at the party said that there was an odd arrangement in which there seemed to be a private dinner for the skincare line — which not all guests at the party were invited to.
