Though the second episode of The Real Housewives of New York City's third season was pretty tame compared to the catfights of the previous seasons, it wasn't short on drama. In fact, there were so many verbal bashings that this episode alone was enough to fuel fire between cast members off-screen.
The root of all the hostility this season, as far as I can remember, has to do with two things: Jill Zarin's beef with Bethenny Frankel for not being there for her over the summer and Mario Singer's "countless" comment at a party, which LuAnn overheard. Unfortunately, both scenarios didn't happen during filming of The Real Housewives of New York City, but at least viewers are now having a field day over all the tension it has caused among the women and the men on this show.

But an hour of drama can only go so far and if you've been religiously following this franchise, you'd know that not every rant makes it on the show. Luckily, cast members have their respective blogs where they waste no time expressing how they really feel about each other.

So what is Mario Singer's reaction to the feud he supposedly started? In a nutshell, Mario thinks LuAnn and Jill's reaction about his phone call was "overkill" and that Jill is blowing things out of proportion. He also thinks that Jill should have been confronted by LuAnn as well for making a comment about how happy she was that the Count was not there.

Not surprisingly, Simon van Kempen feels the same way and so does Ramona Singer. For Ramona, though, she's acknowledged that she was wrong for saying all those nasty things about LuAnn, but is really upset about Jill's ridiculous excuse for not coming to her party.

Of course Jill Zarin has a different story. She believes that Ramona knew that someone else could be listening in on their speakerphone conversation and was aware that they were being filmed on The Real Housewives of New York City. Who do you think is telling the truth?
