Boy, things are coming to a boil! I could really use a Chicken Parm with extra cheese today. Right out of the toaster oven. Yesterday we filmed the reunion. Holy sweat box! Nine hours of hot lamps and hot topics. I thought Andy Cohen would run around in his boxers after they finished shooting.
OK, Episode 13. What did the cat drag in at breakfast? Four left over shells of women who usually lap up the drama. We had met our match. We were emotionally exhausted and it shows on our faces. No one slept the night before with what had transpired. Everyone locked their doors, including Kelly! Ramona offered me to sleep with her, but I don't wake as early as Ramona, so opted to sleep alone.
So I arranged badly needed manicures, pedicures, and massages together. We really deserved them. We were taping a lot and that is tiring, believe this old lady. Especially for the newbie! I want to be natural, give my best, but at the same time keep up with the drama. Yikes!
Finally after discovering Kelly has left, and we can relax, in walks Jill. Nothing against Jill, except I knew Bethenny didn't want to deal with this confrontation. Alex was upset with Jill as well, and Ramona as a hostess was strapped at this point! Ramona did harbor resentment towards Jill already since she wouldn't come for the full trip. As you know, Ramona felt Jill didn't want to come because it wasn't Jill's trip.
You are so amazing Sonja!! I know you could have your own show too!!! I agree with the other viewers about the Jill thing..don't get too close! Keep doing what you are doing. You and Bethenny are my favorites as she is 'real' too.
I loooooooove you!!! you are just fabulous and i wish YOU had your own show!! gawd. THAT i would watch...
Sonja, I have NO desire to "dig" on the other ladies. But I most definitely wanted you to know that YOU ARE FABULOUS!!!! you do not need to be like anyone else. You are one VERY CLASSY lady in my book. Thanks for joining the show. And hang in there Life is one "GRAND" adventure. :0)
HI THERE SONJA!
THIS DOESN'T REALLY MATTER IN THE GRAND SCEAM OF THINGS, BUT I JUST WANTED TO CORRECT YOU ON ONE LITTLE COMMENT YOU MADE. YOU SAID THAT JILL FALLING ON THE ICE, REMINDED YOU OF PARIS HILTON CRASHING HER VESPA ON THE RED CARPET.
HOWEVER!!!! IT WAS KIMBERLY STEWART (PARIS'S BFF AND ROD STEWART'S DAUGHTER THAT DECIDED TO TURN THE MOTORCYCLE ON AND LOST CONTROL OF IT AND FELL OFF RGHT ON THE RED CARPET!!!
JUST THOUGHT YOU MIGHT WANT TO KNOW.
GOOD LUCK IN THE FUTURE SEASONS OF HOUSEWIVES!!! ; ) (PS. I'm sorry if the spelling on this is really messed up. It's very late (as you can probably see) and I need to get some sleep.
Sonya - I like your manner, behavior, and diplomacy. You are a great addition to the show and the lives of the other ladies. I never post comment nor read blogs but wanted to compliment you. Best!
I think that both you and Alex are very genuine,caring people. I hope that Kelly does seek help. I do enjoy your positive input to resolve conflicts on the show. If you have self doubt you should put that aside and know you are someone that enhances the lives of others.
You just crack me up. Such a lady and then you have this little gleam in your eye and I'm thinking OH ....HERE COME THE LITTLE DEVILISH SIDE of Sonja. You are just so beautiful and when you were on the boat and you and Bethenney were talking and you got a little emotional I was wow...to actually feel that way and have and look the way you do. You just seemed so down to earth and a lot of women could relate to you. I do hope that you are on Bethenney's show. Both of you are very special and one of a kind.
I love your class... definitely money could not by (it); it is who you are, and you don't need to sing a song about it. Having the opera singer at your party... now that's class. Stay with the show please, these girls need a voice of reason.
Sonja - I love you on the show! Can you tell me who designed that hot, pink, sexy dress you were wearing at dinner in St. John? I must have it!!!
Sonja, You are such a breath of fresh air. Try to get the others to lossen up and get rid of the drama. Please try to get Kelly help she really needs to deal with her jealousy of Bethenny. Kelly and Jill are both so jealous that Bethenny is getting her own show you can tell how they call her a media hog. Kelly crying over the bag of goodies that Bethenny gave was just her cry about all the money she lost because she made a big mistake telling Bethenny she was better than her. All her own doing. What does she do anyway other then rant and rave about everyone else?? Keep up your great attitude. It is greatly appreciated. Spice things up with fun and laughter not DRAMA!!
Sonja, please like a garden CULTIVATE, CARE, & LOVE the new found friendships with Bethanny, (Ramona I've heard you say have been friends with for 15+ years), and Alex. I can see the 4 of you really having worthwhile, REAL RELATIONSHIPS and you are so caring and I especially admire the way you have an open heart and think for yourself...not like Jill who treats Alex lower than dirt! How dare she treat ANYONE THIS WAY! Shame on her! Please come back next Season you are the voice of reason, bright, funny and make the Show worth watching again. I stopped at one point because the "Jill Show" was too upsetting. All the best to you!
Sonja, you go girl! You are hot, smart, funny and give the others a run for their money. I am so over Jill Zarin's mean-spirited ways and fake attempt to make nice now that everyone sees her true personality. Bravo needs to give you more air time...u are definitely the one to watch.
I just wanted to say that you are one heck of a woman. I mean playing the ref with KELLY and the girls! U did a wonderful job keeping the piece the best way u could!
Sonja- You add such a nice breath of fresh air to the show. I love your honesty. By the way, Sorry to hear you got busted in the hamptons with DWI. I think everyone one time or another is guilty of this especially on a holiday weekend-come on ! Some are just more lucky and some are in the wrong place at the wrong time. Good Luck with that-sincerely.
Anyway on a better note, Again, I am glad you joined the cast. Stay real and do not a big head like alot of the others have. Can't wait to see the reunion show.
Sonja, I LOVE YOUR SPIRIT!!!!!! Thank you for having the courage to always speak the truth and understanding everyone. Please don't change! And PLEASE stay sassy girl!!!!!!
You are classy and confident! I love that you speak your mind, and you're always fair. Well done:) All the best to you.
Sonja- you are a classy, kind woman and I have a tremendous amount of respect for you because I think you were instrumental in handling Kelly's issues in a compassionate way on the Virgin Island trip. I appreciate the way that you enjoy and embrace life. Keep your head up during this DUI ordeal- and I hope to see you next season on the RHWNYC show. Take care and best wishes.
You are hilarious! You are definitely my new favorite. I think you need to continue to stay neutral because you are an amazing mediator!
Sonja, stuff happens! Just take your little legal issue as a life lesson and move on. No one thinks badly of you - if they do, they are not a true friend. Good people make mistakes, too. Next time, get a driver. Stay cool, don't sweat it - "this too shall pass." Your topping the list as my favorite NYC housewive (and I'm a good judge of character).
Here is my thoughts on what the reunion will look like. Bethany, Ramona and Alex on one couch; Jill, Luann and Kelly on the other; and Sonja will be on Andy's lap trying to get him to switch teams! You go girl!
Sonja, thanks for joing the show, you are simply FABULOUS! Stay away from Jill & Luann they are simply no good!
I think you're great! It's nice to have someone on the show who knows how to get the party started. It's like someone opened up a window and let some air in.
Sonja..You are beautiful, fun, sexy and classy..A BREATH OF FRESH AIR TO RHONYC..Please stay the voice of reason and don't get pulled into the mean girls drama!
Sonja, I have enjoyed watching you. Don't sell yourself short with stupid mistakes. You are better than that and worth more than you think. Move on and don't let this bring you down.
I love you, I hope the four of you realize what you have on the show and that's chemistry. I love when you told K to stop being paranoid at the table, girl I screamed it was how you said it funny and to tell the girl in front of K that she's the one with the problem and you girls were ganging up on her, you totally with that one statement had the girls to stop and realize she was falling apart, good for you. I look forward to seeing you next season (Giv'em Hell)
Heard about your DUI in the news. Mistakes happen to us all. But bad things can happen to good people. Stay safe, always have a DD when you want to have fun. (I know you have heard that before). Take care of yourself.
Sonja, You are my favorite. Maybe even more than Bethenny, and I thought I wouldn't like you! I heard about the DUI arrest - please know that you are in my thoughts. It's not the end of the world, and you are still a wonderful, smart, caring woman. xo
I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!! You are def my new favorite.. Bethenny was mine but you are just so awesome and real! i hop you are gonna be on next season
Even considering your recent legal problem, you could certainly teach Luann something about "class." I note you do not "gossip" and make every effort to avoid talking about anyone else. Luann is the opposite. You are a calm and reasonable voice and I hope things go smoothly on the show for you in the future.
Hi Sonja, so sorry about your incident...but happy to hear you were out on the east end. I'm here too. Would love to have lunch with you and I poromise to drive! Maybe I can win a contest and have lunch with you. It would make my year!!!
everybody makes mistakes dont let anyone let you done. i saw preview of tonight eposide it looks like jill is going to turn on you watch out she treat you like she treated bethenny. gril you rock i think you be bethenny show you too rock. i am on team bethenny,you,alex and romona:)
P.S i hope they posted this.
Memorial Day you proved you were human and had a HUGE lapse in judgement. If you are habitual driver while under the influence or if this was a one time thing, you must realize that you put your life and others at risk. Take this opportunity and your new reality TV celebrity status to educate the public on how alcohol impairs your judgement. It was a moment in time, accept responsibility and move on. Perhaps you can set an example for your cast mates on how to accept responsibility for your actions.
I feel so stupid! Somehow I missed "Comments appear after approval" etc. I now understand why all comments are so serupy!
You have become my new favorite out of ALL of the various housewives series. Your zest for life and light heartedness is truly refreshing.
On a side note...I just read about your unfortunate drunk driving arrest over the Memorial Day weekend. While I obviously don't condone drunk driving, I do have to say you looked gorgeous in your mug shot...even WITHOUT make up! I hope you wont let this bit of bad press sway you from returning again next season. Everyone makes mistakes....know you are loved and keep your chin up!
Sonja - you were so amazing how you handled the whole situation with Kelly. I was blown away watching you and how you calmed everyone down and demanded that they back off of Kelly who was obviously having a breakdown. You are an awesome addition to the show and I just love, love, love your attitude about life, men and friends!
Sonja...heard the news. We are all behind you and hope that it was a one time mistake and will all blow over soon. Don't worry about it being in the press....stuff happens. There was a time when we all did that back in the day. Next time get a designated driver even if it didn't seem like you had that much. There are plenty of people who would want to be your wing man. Take care. Looking forward to the finale and reunion!
You are my new favorite housewife ! I think you are classy, real, sexy, and you make me laugh ! I thought you were fun on the ramona trip. Even though you had to babysit kelly half of the time. I cant wait to see more of you ! And im only 23 and i think your hot so stop calling yourself old !
I hope they post my comment - they never do. Sonja, you are the fairest and most level headed woman on the show. Good Karma comes back to reward good people and I know that your fans will be very supportive of you as your news spreads. These are the pitfalls of being famous but remember that the fans have your back.
Im sure Bravo wont post this, however I just saw the news and Im sorry for your run in with the law! Not the end of the world...I really am liking you...you seem more REAL than 3 on that program and I think youre a breath of fresh air. We all make mistakes so chin up...dont do it again...and move on.....
Make this negative into a positive. Educate people about the dangers of drinking and driving. You have alot of fans, and you will get blasted for this. Keep your head high. Everybody makes mistakes. Unfortuntanly, yours is all the news. I feel very bad for you and thank goodness nobody got hurt.
Sonja - Thank you for joining the cast, you are truly bring a fresh prespective to the NYC drama of the housewives. And I love the fact you are very tactful and discreet and talk about a woman's needs! *blushs* Wish you had joined earlier!
Sonja, No worries. It could happen to the best of us. Keep your head held high! Kelly will be sure to do something soon to one up you!
You know when you get in the limelight, everyone's waiting for you to slip up and make a mistake. Forgive yourself, hold your head high, get a driver, and move on!
