The Truth About Melissa Gorga And Ramona Singer’s Friendship

There’s no East Coast rivalry here! Manhattanite and Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer is an OG cast member who patented the phrase “turtle time” before turnt up was even around. So it may come as a surprise to fans that Ramona counts Garden State homemaker and Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Melissa Gorga among her real-life pals. 

Businesswoman Ramona has founded multiple companies — most famously her Rejuvenate skincare product line under umbrella brand RMS Fashions — and is famously picky about her friend group. While she butted heads with new RHONY Housewife Leah McSweeney both on and off camera last season, Ramona prefers the company of another, younger Bravo star: Melissa. 

Melissa, who counts costar Teresa Giudice as a sister-in-law, owns New Jersey boutique store Envy. She and Ramona both have backgrounds in the fashion industry and share an appreciation for good Pinot Grigio. Keep scrolling to find out how this seemingly unlikely friendship formed and what both Ramona and Melissa have said about one another in the past! 

Ramona Singer and Melissa Gorga's friendship has been the source of RHONJ drama

RHONY and RHONJ unite! Ramona Singer has forged a friendship with Melissa Gorga over the course of a decade on the Bravo franchise. Ramona even made a brief appearance during the RHONJ Season 8 reunion episode when she called Melissa during the taping, per Us Weekly. 

Yet not all of the RHONJ cast can call Ramona a friend. At 2019’s BravoCon, RHONJ stars Margaret Josephs and Dolores Catania both had unpleasant encounters with Ramona, dubbed the “Singer Stinger.” According to Life & Style. Dolores thinks that Ramona “acts like she doesn’t know them” with other Bravo stars. They attempted to “squash the beef” over a photo debacle, but it led to Dolores telling Ramona she’s “in the wrong business” of being a reality TV personality if she doesn’t want to engage with fans.  

RHONJ star Margaret gave her two cents about Ramona in March 2020, telling Hollywood Life that it’s “embarrassing” to be in the same franchise as the “hot and cold” Ms. Singer. Per Reality Blurb, Margaret also believes Ramona’s friendship with Melissa is more one-sided than it appears. “Ramona loves her because she’s gorgeous and fun and fabulous and she’s young. They’re genuinely friends [but] I think Ramona loves Melissa more than Melissa loves Ramona,” Margaret revealed. 

Despite RHONJ costars clashing with Ramona, Melissa still “battled” her pal for singing competition Lip Sync Battle. Maybe Melissa is now singing a different tune!
