I think you're giving Ramona too much credit. I agree, she's not a dunce, but I don't think she's mean. I think she lacks social skills. Not all of her outbursts are recriminatory in nature - nothing provoked her outburst toward Kelly at Saks, and nothing provoked her thoughtless comments to Bethenny on the bridge. Well, nothing except thoughtlessness itself, which I attribute to her lack of social skills.Originally Posted by hajime08;3879696;
I happen to like Ramona - I think she's made a successful marriage, a successful family, and a successful business. She comes across as rather awkward, though, uncomfortable in her own skin and very self-conscious of the way she speaks (though in the process, she tends to overlook the "what" she speaks). I see her as the unpopular girl trying to fit in. Of course, I also see Jill with the self-image of the unpopular girl, but Jill strong-arms her way to the top of the food chain (or her perception of the top of the food chain) by being mean and acting superior to people.
I don't think Ramona has serious ulterior motives.
