On last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, the Countess let Ramona know she’s on Team Jill!

Countess LuAnn de Lesseps can’t seem to stay away from the drama! On last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, LuAnn was ready to stand by her bff Jill Zarin — but was it really her place to get in the middle of an argument that had nothing to do with her? The Countess met with Ramona Singer for lunch, where she scolded her for her bad behavior during the launch party of Ramona’s Pinot Grigio!

“You say things that are really hurtful,” LuAnn told Ramona. She felt Ramona had “cheapened” the event by getting into it with Jill in front of the guests. Poor Ramona looked like she was going to burst out in tears as LuAnn continued to berate her!

Cindy Barshop, Jill, and Kelly Bensimon seem to agree with the Countess. The girls are about to take a trip to Morocco and after Kelly’s breakdown on “scary island” last season, she’s extremely hesitant to go on any type of vacation with the ladies!

“I’m not going. I cannot go on a trip with Ramona. It’s hard for me to be in a room with her,” Kelly told the “brunettes,” who were busy relaxing in Canyon Ranch together.

“You cannot have Ramona control your life!” Cindy said.

Things continued to get heavy between the Countess and Ramona during Jill’s anti-bullying event!

“I was with all the girls and they don’t even want to go on the trip to Morraco because you’re coming!” LuAnn lashed out.

But Ramona was not having it. “You’re picking a fight — stop it now!” she told Luann. Alex McCord was standing by to protect her friend! “She’s a thug in a cocktail dress!” Alex said about the Countess.

But Luann didn’t just stir up trouble last night. She was actually a great friend to Kelly, who opened up to her regarding past abusive relationships.

“Every single guy I trusted or thought was going to be a nice person slapped me with their hands,” she cried to LuAnn, who embraced her in a huge hug.

So Hollywoodlifers, does the Countess have good intentions or is she just trying to get some screen time by getting in the way of the other housewives? Should she just let Jill and Ramona fight their own battles?
