Ramona Singer was accused on this week’s “Real Housewives of New York” of sharing photos with black friends to show she’s not racist.
Calling Singer a “master manipulator,” pal Sonja Morgan said she found it “funny” that Singer had posted an Instagram pic with “RHONY” newbie Eboni K. Williams, the franchise’s first black cast member, and another black friend, Bershan Shaw, weeks apart.
“I found it very manipulative because my girl Ramona is a master of manipulation,” Morgan told Williams during the new cast member’s election night party.
Williams, clearly taken aback by the accusation, then asked fellow partygoers, including castmates Luann de Lesseps and Leah McSweeney, “Are y’all telling me that Ramona is posting pictures rapid-fire of black women in her life to counter a narrative that she’s racist?”
The group responded with a resounding “yes.”
In separate confessionals, the ladies appeared to react to the accusation, with Morgan saying, “Obvi,” McSweeney commenting, “It does sound like a typical Ramona move,” and de Lesseps replying, “Yeah.”
Singer captioned the Hamptons-snapped shot with Williams, “You know I love making new friends 😊 @ebonikwilliams.”
Morgan, 57, also made it clear at the party that she isn’t fond of people who champion social causes with bandwagon motives.
“Don’t ride a cause to look good,” Morgan said. “I don’t like fake.”
She continued, “Shut the f–k up unless you’re living it, feeling it, and breathing it, that’s it. I love Ramona Singer, but don’t you f–king post a picture and say, ‘I like my new friend!’”
A rep for Bravo did not immediately return our request for comment.
In a preview for next week’s episode — where viewers are poised to meet Shaw — Williams and Singer are seen having what appears to be a heated conversation.
Earlier this season, Williams — who has had multiple conversations with the ladies about race during her short time on the show — sat down with Singer after she referred to her house staff as “the help.” Williams told Singer the controversial remark was “triggering” for her.
“At this point with Ramona I’m seeing some things I like — very welcoming, opened her home to me, invited me on this trip. And then I’m seeing some things I don’t really like so much. Calling the lovely Michelle, who’s there to help her, the ‘help,’” Williams said in her confessional at the time. “So the jury’s still out on Ramona.”
The “Real Housewives of New York” airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
