No, that’s not the sound of wedding bells. It’s The Real Housewives of New York City fighting.
ET has your exclusive first look at Wednesday’s all-new episode of the Bravo hit, which finds Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps in a war of words over her upcoming wedding to Tom D’Agostino. Reminder, Dorinda Medley was the only current cast member invited to the New Year’s Eve nuptials.
“I don’t really care,” Ramona tells Luann. “I’m just saying, as an outsider looking in, I don’t think there’s any reason not to invite me and my feelings are a little hurt that you did not. That’s all. I can say that. Not saying I would go.”
“Well, I’m sorry your feelings are hurt, Ramona,” Luann says. “I really am. You know I love you. I just… I cannot have any chances that this night is taken from me.”
“Well, what would I do?” Ramona asks. “I never did anything! What did I do? I didn’t do anything? Tom did all the stuff. But, OK, let’s go. Here’s to your wedding. I don’t want to talk about it.”
“I wish you would move on,” Luann fires back. “I thought we had.”
All the while, Dorinda, Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel are watching on. Of course, they have to weigh in.
“She told me she doesn’t want to go!” Bethenny announces. “She said, ‘I don’t want to go, I want to be invited.’ What’s the point of that? That’s a handjob. That’s a useless exercise.”
“This is so strange and desperate,” she adds in a confessional. “Playing mind games with someone’s wedding? ‘I don’t want to go, but I want you to invite me.’ Like, it’s very manipulative.”
“I just want it to be drama free!” Luann tells the group. “I’m sure you can all understand that. Don’t be hurt. I don’t want you to be hurt.”
“I want you to know, people are still taking bets if the wedding’s gonna be on or not,” Ramona replies.
“Oh, that’s great!” Luann says. “And you ask me why I didn’t invite you to the wedding! Right there. Right there, there you go.”
“That’s not nice to say to someone planning their wedding!” Bethenny chimes in. “Why would you be invited? I don’t blame you … now you’re double not invited.”
ET caught up with Ramona in March, where she shed some light on the situation.
“I was disappointed, not that I was going to go,” she shared. “I was already planning to take my daughter Avery, we did a beautiful trip to Paris and London … but I was disappointed, because I'm a woman's woman. I really am. I've always been that way. She was having problems last year with both Carole and Bethenny, to the point where I, repeatedly, tried to get that to make up and get together.”
“I'm here to help you, why you're not inviting me?” Ramona continues. “But you know what she said? She goes, 'Well, I don't want any drama at my wedding.' I go, 'Sweetie, the only person that's creating any drama is Tom.' I didn't create the drama, he did!”
