They started out fighting (and drinking) in the morning after Sonja Morgan refused to let them into her home in the driving rain, and the fighting (and drinking) never stopped.

"This is my birthday weekend, and I've had enough stress in my life," Singer yelled in the limo ride to Atlantic City.

"On a scale of one to 10, how happy am I that I missed the limo ride?" asked Carole Radziwill. "A 12."

Kelly Bensimon Addresses 'Crazy' Rumors – in a Bikini

Originally posted 08/17/2011 08:30AM

Kelly Bensimon is setting the record straight about her sometimes outrageous behavior on The Real Housewives of New York City.

After Bensimon, 43, had her now-infamous meltdown during a cast trip to St. John's, "people called me crazy," she admits in the September issue of Shape magazine."But what they saw was me reacting – in an honest way – to a situation that wasn't honest. Then everyone ganged up on me. So, of course I looked crazy!"

Bensimon was so distraught by the backlash from her erratic behavior on the show that she almost didn't return for the fourth season. It was her daughters, Sea, 13, and Teddy, 11, who convinced her to let the public know who she really is.

The women of The Real Housewives of New York City met up to discuss their fourth season of the hit reality show recently – and the fireworks aired Monday night. Here are the most dramatic moments:

1. Sonja's Meltdown: When host Andy Cohen asked Sonja Morgan about her tough year, which included filing for bankruptcy, she broke down in tears. "The $7 million, that wasn't what really killed me," she said of money she was ordered to pay in a lawsuit against her. "What was very upsetting to me was that my marriage fell apart ... I didn't care about the trial. I didn't care about the money. I was focused on the past, my husband and what we had together."

2. Jill Insults Alex: When Andy asked Jill Zarin about criticizing Alex McCord and Ramona Singer for wearing white to a wedding, Alex fired back, saying, "It's a lot ruder to call someone a 'f–– bitch' at the wedding than it is to wear cream."

"By the way, " Jill said in response, "you are an effing bitch."
