‘RHONY’: Elyse Slaine Has ‘Regret and Remorse’ Over Shady Ramona Singer Comment
Elyse Slaine from The Real Housewives of New York City is regretting the shady comment she made toward Ramona Singer. The Bravo stars have been at odds throughout the show’s current season and things don’t seem to be getting any better. After Slaine reacted to a story published online, the reality TV personality made a dig at Singer that she is now taking back.
What was Elyse Slaine reacting to?
The friendship between Slaine and Singer is on the rocks after they both hit a roadblock during the middle of the RHONY production. Although the exact reason for their rift is not known, the OG housewife has said Slaine used her to get fame.
“Elyse used me for fame and she’s continuing to do that to get what she wants,” Singer told the New York Post. “She was never a true friend, she just wanted to be on the show.”
On social media Singer replied to a fan echoing the same sentiment.
“She betrayed me,” Singer posted. “All she wanted was fame at my expense, not a friendship.”
When a blogger shared a story about what Singer was saying about Slaine, they rephrased Singer’s.
“Ramona Slams Elyse, “She Is Just a Fame Wh**,” is how the quote read and what took Slaine by surprise.
The latter shared the story on her Instagram and added, “Ummm… I am not the one who sleeps with random men.”
Elyse Slaine walks back her comments
After a Bravo fan account shared our article about Slaine’s reaction, the latter clarified her statement and why she deleted her comment from social media.
“I thought that Ramona used the term ‘fame wh**,’ so I reacted,” she tweeted. “As soon [as] I realized the term came from the blogger, I took down my response immediately.”
Slaine went on to further clarify her comment on Instagram and expressed she felt “regret and remorse for a stupid, impulsive reaction.”
“Some blogs wrote that I accused Ramona of sleeping with random men,” she added. “I reacted impulsively to being called a ‘fame wh**.’ I quickly retracted my clap back, I was just pissed and didn’t mean it. I wish Ramona the best, and I will no longer respond to comments about her.”
Elyse Slaine won’t be at the reunion
Slaine, who recurred on RHONY Season 12 and even had confessionals on the reality series, skipped out of the cast trip to Mexico. Many fans believed that she had been let go after Singer’s birthday on the show, but the entrepreneur debunked those rumors.
“Dorinda wanted me to go to Mexico,” she told a Twitter troll. “Our relationship was not the problem. Anyway, I was traveling with my hubby when the girls went to Mexico.”
The trip south of the border happened after Singer celebrated her birthday with her 50 girlfriends. By this time, Slaine and Singer’s relationship was already rocky and distant.
Many fans wanted Slaine to be at the RHONY reunion to tell her side of the feud, but she confirmed she was not invited.
A fan asked if she would get a special with Andy Cohen, but Slaine assured she had not been contacted by Bravo.
There are only a handful of episodes left on season 12 of RHONY before the reunion where the ladies will relive the drama from the previous year.
The Real Housewives of New York City airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
