Filming for The Real Housewives of New York has been shut down for almost a month after a cast member tested positive for COVID-19.  While everyone was guessing who caught the virus, Ramona Singer hightailed it out of town to enjoy some time away from the city.  She was spotted partying it all over the place: St. Barts, Palm Beach, and Mar-a-Lago.

While Ramona was clearly not even in the country at one point, she kept up appearances by pretending she was home in Manhatten getting a workout in.  Shortly after that, she headed to Florida where she was spotted partying on a yacht and at Mar-a-Lago – not a mask in sight as the Floridians do.

Production asked the women to stay in New York so they could get back to filming as soon as possible, but even Luann de Lesseps headed to Florida with some extra time off.  Leah McSweeney was also spotted out and about in the city, which led some people to assume it was Sonja Morgan who had tested positive.  No confirmation on that yet though.

Ramona is allegedly heading back to New York this week so filming can resume.  The finale was supposed to be filming in upstate New York back in January but has been relocated to Ramona’s house in Southhampton, NY.  After that, production will probably wrap for season 13.

Ramona Singer took a break from filming The Real Housewives of New York and headed to warmer pastures.

At the start of the pandemic, Leah was very outspoken about her feelings on the pandemic and precautions against traveling.  If anyone is going to be upset with Ramona, it’s going to be Leah.  In any case, it should make the finale party exciting now that they have all had a month to sit and watch Ramona travel around.

With the addition of Eboni K. Williams to the cast, it should be a great season.  Here’s to hoping they can get back into the swing of things and get the last few episodes filmed.  Hide your tiki torches, Ramona, because Leah is coming over and she’s ready to redecorate!
