Bravo Fan and Champion Field Reporter, Trish O'Shea met Ramona at a "Wine Signing" in New Jersey. Thank you Trish!
On Tuesday, I got home from school and sat down to watch the "second to last" Oprah episode! While surfing through Twitter, I notice that Ramona Singer (from Real Housewives of New York City) "tweeted", "On my way to my wine bottle signing at Total Wine in River Edge, NJ. Really? Ten minutes away from me (and a store that I drive past every day coming home from work??) Sign me up!
I headed down there a few minutes after 5 p.m. and arrived to see Ramona sitting at a table right near the door. I walked over, introduced myself and told me that I might be posting pictures for Blogging Bravo. She told me that that was fine and thanked me for asking in advance!
Ramona is just like she is on the show; demanding ("Zoom out and be sure to get all the bottles in the picture!"), somewhat pushy ("I'm marketing my wine, my skin care, my jewelry which I am wearing!") and friendly - all at the same time! It was like talking to an old friend!
I asked about the show and the upcoming episodes in Morocco. She said that even though the trip airs in the three parts, the visit was only about 6 days. And she was not worried about seeing the episodes, "They're fine, the show is fine."
The store wasn't filled to capacity, but there were some "Housewives" fans on hand to show their love for Ramona. The very friendly staff was also offering samples of the Pinot Grigio, but I never made it over to that side of the table! However, those who did sample the wine really seemed to enjoy it!
