Ramona Singer apparently had a younger brother that she was estranged from that we knew nothing about. Sadly, he died three weeks ago. Recently, when Ramona was at Jill Zarin’s charity event, she
sold told the story to US Weekly.
In that interview she says,”My brother just died. No one knows this. He died about three weeks ago, my younger brother, and we weren’t close anymore.”
I thought she might share how he died or how long they had been estranged and why, but she skipped over all of that sort of thing to talk about her niece, “Because of this death, I got closer to my niece. I flew her out … for about a week. And I spoke to her and said that I was really sorry about her dad’s death, but if it wasn’t for his death, you wouldn’t have bonded with Avery and I. So we have this whole new relationship we never had.”
So Ramona to say, “Sorry your dad died, but now we can be friends! Look on the bright side!”
Somehow the death of her brother has caused her to make amends with Jill Zarin. I’m guessing this is how it went. Ramona’s brother died and despite Ramona trouncing out these droves of “friends” she has every season on RHONY, there was no one around to comfort her when her brother died. At that same time, Bobby Zarin’s cancer took a terrible turn and everyone was rallying to support Jill and Bobby. Ramona saw a lot of people being supportive and suddenly decided to befriend Jill again.
Here are Ramona’s thoughts on the issue,“Jill has all these people rallying around her. You see how blessed you are with your friends. It doesn’t matter how much money you have. It doesn’t matter how famous or beautiful you are. What really matters is your family and friends, and friends become family. And Jill has great friends. We are all behind her 100 percent.”
Again, that’s so Ramona. “I know I am rich and look great and you would think that would be enough but it isn’t. I need to get me some friends like Jill.”
So she went to the hospital and visited Bobby and she and Jill had a nice long chat.
I Don’t know what to say.
