Tempers Flare as Ramona Attacks LuAnn's Parenting on 'Real Housewives NYC' Reunion (VIDEO)

'The Real Housewives of New York City' reunionRamona made things personal, and seemed absolutely delighted by the visceral response she was getting, on 'The Real Housewives of New York City' (Thu., 10PM ET on Bravo) reunion special.

The angrier LuAnn and Jill got, the more she smiled and shifted around in her seat.

It was Andy Cohen's fault for bringing it up, but Ramona's criticism of LuAnn's parenting skills was one of the more stand-out moments in the season. This question led to a lot of yelling back and forth, as Jill jumped to LuAnn's defense, and a lot of unanswered questions.

"Why has your daughter transferred [schools] four times in four years?" Ramona asked. The response: "What does that have to do with our relationship?"

"And why did your daughter leave your school?" Jill asked Ramona. The response: Ramona repeated the above question to LuAnn. She's not here to answer questions about her own daughter. They have a "system."

This system apparently explains how Ramona can say that she doesn't have problems with her daughter because "I'm home a lot," while at the same time her daughter says she's never home for dinner and doesn't tell her when she's coming home. That's some system!

In the end, Jill reached a breaking point. She was disgusted that the children were being brought into this at all. "I'm not talking about the children," she said, getting up and leaving the set to take a break.

We can't help but agree. It's one thing for these women to snap and judge one another -- hey, that's what the show is all about. But let's not try to pull the innocents in, by which we mean the children. Nothing gets a mother more on the defensive than pulling children in, which is of course why Ramona was so delighted to do it.

Didn't she look like she should be rubbing her hands in glee, or maybe a crystal ball while she was smirking as LuAnn and Jill got more and more upset?

One last thing, you recognize the bad behavior by your comments but yet you still watch it. What the heck is wrong with you people? MaryAnn your comments would l=make a person think you do not enjoy the show but yet you obviously still watch it.

I think reality shows are like car wrecks or any kind of accidents in which someones been hurt. How many times have we seen fires where so many spectators are watching firemen have trouble putting them out? A car wreck where everyone stops to see if someone is hurt or killed? Humans tend to enjoy watching others suffer. (not all) I think people watch other peoples misery and almost get a kind of high. The more these women tear each other up the more excited audiences get. Its feeding people what they eat up. I mean if a persons life is boring or worse (abusive) then watching someone elses life might make there lives not seem so bad. What bothers me is if these women do these things on camera how much worse is it off camera?

What is it with you women, you enjoy watching cat fights and people insulting each other? You are supposed to be the nurturing ones. I hope you are not letting your kids watch this too. thia kind of behavior is really ok with you?

Anyone who likes this crap really needs to expand their lives and stop encouraging the producers of these shows to take then further than they already have. Come on Christina, what does this bring you except to maybe give you some self esteem. This is hardly entertainment, this is garbage.

I completely love all the Real Housewives shows. The cattyness and gossiping are part of what give the show its entertainment value. However, the reunion episode went to a whole new level. I CANNOT stand Ramona or Alex at all and thank you brunettes for trying to put Alex in her place. Ramona started with the children and did look happy when dissing LuAnn's daughter, she was digging for dirt and being a bitch. I don't think the kids should have been brought up but they have been on the show so I guess Ramona thought they were fair game. Love the show and can't wait for part two of the reunion :)

Ramona was not the only Housewife to play dirty. Every last one of them behaved like idiots, with the most vile name-calling and insults. Jill Zarin is no exception, and she's actually probably the worst offender among them. That show needs to clean house completely, clear them all out, and start with a new cast. Sonia Morgan, although her behavior can be annoying, at least managed to behave like a halfway sane human being. That can't be said for any of the rest of them, including that smug, pretentious witch LuAnn.

I wish that bug-eyed drunk Ramona would question my parenting skills on national TV, she would get the reaction she was looking for.

Had the shoe been on the other foot LuAnn would have been the first to call out Ramona on her parenting skills. Heck she's the first to call out anyone on thier kids. What a season, Kelly has become a burnt out bully and LuAnn's lack of class is out of the closet. As for Cindy, other than to promote her business she seemed totally out of place with this group. Can't wait for next season:)

And we wonder why today's teenage girls are spoiled, self-absorbed drama queens. If only these women realized that they easily have the means (money) to live happy, productive, meaningful lives... if they only addressed the personality disorders which cause their personal inner misery.
