Sonja Morgan Reveals She's Currently on a Break from This RHONY Pal
The #RHONY entrepreneur reveals where the crew stands after an emotional Season 8.
If you have yet to recover from the firework-filled Season 8 of The Real Housewives of New York City, we don't blame you. It appears that some of the ladies are also still trying to get back to normal after all those ups and downs. In case you missed it, Sonja Morgan found herself smack-dab in the middle of a few different battles this season, facing off with Bethenny Frankel over their lifestyle brands, hashing out her partying ways with Ramona Singer, and dealing with the fallout of revealing her former relationship with Luann de Lesseps' fiancé.
"It was a very good season, it was good. It was a little dark," she told The Daily Dish. "I would have liked to see more of my comedic relief in there. I think the general public has been telling me that everywhere I go."
Sonja also shared that she has yet to hear from her pals following her debut in the Off-Broadway show, Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man. "I always support all of their products and ventures," she said. "Now I'm just waiting for someone to say, 'Wow, that's great.' 'Cause I'm not competing with any of their products with this. None of them are the comedian or the actor, or whatever. I did do the modeling and acting for a while, so this is like full circle for me. I would think they would be texting and saying, 'Wow, that's great.'"
With the season behind her, she's now revealing where she currently stands with some of her pals.
"I pride myself on not burning bridges, which is why I was sick to my stomach when I had that big fight with Bethenny," Sonja told The Daily Dish. "I didn't want to burn a bridge with her over me opening a mom and pop restaurant and my prosecco. I didn't want that to happen and the girls getting in between that that made me worried, really worried. My daughter was relieved [that we settled it] because she knows how I am. I don't burn bridges like that. And, also, I know that Bethenny, she's going through so much with the divorce, 'cause I've been there [and] I would have been there to lighten it up, even at her barbecue, it was just too much. I've been there, going through a divorce and having to write a big check, my lawyers were millions of dollars. It's hard."

"It became a lot about Luann because Luann made it a lot about Luann." Sonja told us. "And I think I got back in there so late that I didn't get to tell my side of the story or show Ramona's side. Or, you know, maybe it did sort of snowball. Yeah [we're OK now] because Luann is my friend and she's not judgmental. That's why we are friends, but when it comes to a man, she has blinders on. That's where we are right now. She just had total blinders. If she's happy with that, I'm going to support her. I think they will [get married]. From what I see, Luann's going to make it down the aisle, and like I say, if she's happy I'm happy."
In regards to Ramona, Sonja shared on Watch What Happens Live this week that things are "not great." She elaborated a little more to us recently that she's on a bit of a hiatus from her pal. "These girls have never Tweeted or Instagrammed any of my fashions. Ramona was terrible when she was on Watch What Happens Live when she said, 'No, I didn't order anything from her collection because it takes eight weeks.' I mean just saying nothing. I mean, I love her but she's like that Labrador that just jumps up on you and she's just ripping your suede jacket at the same time and you're like, 'OK.' I have benched Ramona for a couple of years before. Sometimes you just need a break from her."
