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.
