Ramona Singer: If Luann Were a REAL Addict, She'd Need More Rehab!

by at .

We know that this will surprise exactly zero viewers of The Real Housewives of New York City, but Ramona Singer has some strong opinions about one of her fellow Housewives.

Specifically, she gets asked how she feels about Luann de Lesseps going to rehab again following a relapse.

Ramona thinks that it couldn't have been for long enough, and thinks that Luann is sending a harmful message to "serious" addicts.

The hosts of E!'s #DailyPop asked Ramona Singer how proud she is of Luann de Lesseps.

Ramona hesitated before even answering.

"I think someone who gets out of rehab after two weeks," Ramona says, trailing off. "I mean are they really well?"

Her words and tone suggest that she believes the answer to be no.

"What kind of message," Ramona asks. "Are you sending to other people who have serious alcoholic problems?"

Ramona Singer Is Not Impressed

Ramona has doubts about the efficacy of a two-week stint in rehab -- like the one that Luann took after she relapsed and got drunk.

"I don't think anyone can get better after two, three weeks," Ramona says dismissively.

Ramona does acknowledge that this was not Luann's only time in rehab.

"Obviously," Ramona admits. "She went in a few months ago for 30 days."

Ramona says that she worried at the time that it would not be enough, telling E! that: "I said to one of her friends, 'Please have her stay for two months.'"

Ramona also addressed Dennis Shields' tragic death and how Bethenny Frankel is coping with the sudden passing of her on-again, off-again boyfriend.

"I just feel bad for the children," Ramona says after a moment when asked about the situation.

Obviously, children are the least equipped to process tragedy and trauma -- and they are always, always the innocents.

"He left four children behind, and that just breaks my heart," Ramona says. "It breaks my heart."

The hosts ask her if she has spoken to Bethenny on the subject.

"I've texted her," Ramona says of Bethenny. "I texted her my condolences."

Ramona Singer Nearly Cries

Look, we're no experts on addiction or recovery or rehab or sobriety.

But ... neither is Ramona Singer. Sorry, not sorry.

Different people respond to treatments -- of any kind -- at different rates.

And there is a massive difference between someone's first visit to rehab after realizing that they need to change their life, in contrast with someone heading back for a stint in rehab after a relapse.

That said ... studies have shown that just two weeks without alcohol can allow the brain to recover and make changes to being without booze.

There is also a huge difference between someone going to rehab to change their life -- which is what Luann did -- and someone going to rehab to save their life.

Luann's issues with alcohol could have killed her, but it sounds like she was more concerned about her health and behavior.

In contrast, some attend rehab because they are worried that their next dose of a substance will be their last.

That sort of situation can lead to a much longer stint in rehab, as a single relapse could easily be fatal.

In Luann's case, she drank in response to a sudden and painful stressor, and then she checked into rehab. She was being smart.
