And then, even with Ramona, you’re going to see a unique relationship between Ramona and I, as a result of we’ve all the time been not on the identical web page,” she teased. “Ramona’s Ramona. She’s a tough one. So, you’re just going to see a lot more relationships, drama, fun, and you’re going to get to know the new housewife.”
