RHONY Ramona Singer Launches New Red Wine

You probably know Ramona Singer from her enthusiastic and quirky demeanor on Real Housewives of New York, but the savvy businesswoman is a lot more than a housewife. The reality star announced the newest addition to her collection of Ramona Wines, called Ramona Red. The wine will be a Sangiovese Merlot Blend and will be produced by Opici Wines. In 2011, the star released Ramona Pinto Grigio to much success and is following up with a much needed darker wine. We know from the current season of RHONY that Ramona is no stranger to wines - she can blindly pick out her delicious vinos from a bunch.

Bethenny Frankel's Baby's 1st Picture-Worth $100,000?

The first pictures of New York housewife Bethenny Frankel have debuted in People Magazine. However, the housewife did not give the pictures away without first trying to get paid $100,000 for them first. Frankel must be seriously deranged if she thinks she is some type of celebrity who can make these types of demands. Of course no magazine would pay her $100,000 so she ended up giving the pictures to People for free. Reality check woman, you are a New York City Housewife, not an A-list star.
