The 60-year-old Pinot Grigio aficionado is opening up exclusively to Life & Style about her feud with the Skinnygirl mogul, which came to a head on TV screens on June 7, and admits she went too far.
"It was blind rage," she says. "I know I said vicious and horrible things because I wanted her to feel pain. I wanted to pierce her, for her to show some emotion. That was so immature of me."
The brutal fight started when Bethenny, 46, accused Ramona of not being a good friend after she brought up Bethenny's topless scene from a 1994 low-budget horror film and asked if anyone had talked to her seven-year-old daughter Brynn about it.
Ramona did not take the insult well and responded by claiming Bethenny slept her way to the top. "You're an opportunist. You use people," Ramona yelled at the brunette beauty at castmate Dorinda Medley's weekend home in the Berkshires. "I accept people for who they are. You are broken. You are so f--king broken you don't even see it. And I feel sorry for you."
She continued, "You're that Bethenny b---hy witch, that's who you are."
Bethenny, likewise, didn't mince words with Ramona, telling her, "You and I will never speak again. We will never be on the same sidewalk ever again."
Despite the harsh words, Ramona admits she was wrong and believes there is a chance they can "salvage" their friendship.
"She's self-made. She did not sleep her way to the top — and I respect everything's she done," Ramona explains. "I want to get past it, but I just have to give her space."
