Pretty much from the beginning of Season 5, original Real Housewives of New York City castmember Ramona Singer has had a hard time getting along with newbie wife Heather Thomson. And it seems the window for resolving their differences is closing.

“Expect a lot of conflict between Heather and I, because I keep calling her out on stuff,” Singer, 55, tells Celebuzz. “Either you agree with me or not, but it's what I felt. There are a lot of things that happen. It was pretty wild. I have to say this is only the beginning. You just hit the top of the cake right now. You haven't gotten into the center.”

What is at the center of Ramona and Heather's conflict? The housewife gives her take...

It all started when Singer told Thomson that she talked too much and made it very hard to carry on a conversation. Instead of taking that as constructive criticism, Thomson was offended. Now as Singer watches the conflict unfold on camera, she says she knows why things got so bad between them.

“I watch the episode and anything negative she said about me was always behind my back,” Singer tells us. “She never said those things to me. She never said to me, 'Oh, Ramona, I don't think you like me.’ She never said to me 'Ramona, you upset me when you said I talked too much.' I rather she address those issues to my face.”

“Put it on the table,” she adds. “Say, 'You know what, Ramona? I have issues with you.' That’s what I would do. I was a little surprised by her betrayal and the way she handled it.”

On the last episode, things got "Ra-motional" at a party in honor of Singer’s friend and fellow housewife, Sonja Morgan. Morgan saw nothing wrong with Singer being left out of a girls’ trip to London that Thomson was organizing. That not only drove Singer nuts, but she also left the party early. In her defense, the Ramona Pinot Grigio founder says she had told Morgan that she had another event to attend that evening. Nevertheless, she didn't stay mad at her friend for too long.

“When you are truly a friend, you can scream your head off and it's forgotten,” Singer explains. “I guess things got a little emotional, it probably wasn’t the right time for me to get that way. But, you know what? It was something that was pent up and I had to let go. Sonia gets it. Sonia doesn’t judge me. Sonia accepts me for who I am and I accept her for who she is. At this point, I was just really annoyed that Heather couldn't communicate with me.”

The Real Housewives of New York City airs Mondays at 9 PM on Bravo.

    I suspect Ramona is on some drug. She is frequently flying high you can see it in her wild eyes. I also cannot stand her rude and very unlikeable husband. He should get a job.

    Ramona is NUTS!!! I can barely watch the show anymore...too much screaming, too much stabbing behind the back... too much drama which is disrespectful, and childlike - totally ridiculous, .The women do not listen to each other and it's getting unreasonable. Ramona is either on some type of drug or is drinking round the clock. She never shuts up! Is all this erratic behavior by Ramona and now the others staged to boost rating? I think it is.

    TEAM HEATHER FOR SURE. RAMONA HAS ALWAYS BEEN SELF CENTERED, EGOTISTICAL AND A DRAMA QUEEN. IF IT IS NOT ABOUT HER SHE GOES BALISTIC. SHE APPEARS TO BE A POSSIBLE ALCOHOLIC. ALWAYS FACING THE CAMERAS WITH HER BULGING EYES, RIDICULOUS. NO CLASS

    I love the new RHNYC cast members. I had sworn off the show because I refuse to watch Jill or Kelly anymore, and it's nice to be back now that they are gone. Ramona and her husband were very rude to Heather and I wouldn't take Ramona around my business connections either if I were she. Carole is my new favorite, but Aviva and Heather are interesting, too, and I look forward to learning more about them.

    Ramona needs counseling, she is a wounded soul, and riddled with rejection, hurting people hurt people. How her hub puts up with her is beyond me.

    Team Ramona! I didn't like Heather from the first minute, she's so full of herself! Ramona is annoying and spazzy and has irritable mouth syndrome but she's lovable. Plus Heather should have invited her to London just out of respect as a new girl to the show--who does she think she is??

    Ramona is self centered self important and not very bright. She has terrible manners and is very egotistical, it is very uncomfortable to watch, very sad. She is very unaware of how truly rude, obnoxious and ridiculous she is!

    i think ramona is a pain in the a....... she is opinionated and obnoxious and always trys to outdo everyone else.... good for you heather standing your ground and not submitting to pressure from the other housewives to invite her to london. I wouldn't be able to take 5 minutes of her whining and drinking her "wine". I am not loving this cast; i miss kelly, jill and the other housewives. this season is boring.

    Ramona...I like you but I would not like you to be around my business associates. You are unfiltered and that is not a good thing.
