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.
I love your on the show. I think you have brought a wonderful flair to this season. I look forward to seeing more of you. I think you are an honest, up front lady who doesn't take sides or gossips ~ just says her opinion and lets it drop. You go girl!
Still love you Sonia, you are great!!!! love the red dress incident , lol. FYI im married to a man, i just think you would be the coolest friend to have.i would love to spend a day with you, you are fab!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sonja - u r a breath of fresh air. You are very much a free spirit and someone i would love to know i my life. Thanks to you for the support you bring to the ladies of NY. I am sure they truly enjoy your company.
You are great, i love you on the show. I wish when things unfolded that you could have taken jill aside and maybe smoothed it over like you seem to have a talent to do. I really enjoy your desire to be easy going and fair.
Thank you for being a refreshing breeze into this madness. It is clear that you have a heart of gold and only want good things for all. I have been living in NYC for 3 years now and can honestly say it is difficult to find friends like you!
When Beth leaves you are going to be the favorite housewife. So many can relate to you. Funny. You make me feel like we are old friends. I love you and well come to the show. Stay, don't run away!!! Love you, DCW
Sonja, I LOVE YOU! I thoroughly enjoy watching you every week, and I think it was a brilliant idea to have you join the cast. You are beautiful, and real! I agree with everything you said in your blog. I appreciate your fashion, and sense of style. I can't wait to see you on episodes to come.
Sonja- So far you are a breath of fresh air. Please don't go to crazy town too like so many of the other housewives. You seem kind and real and I hope you stay that way!
Sonja -I have waited for several eps to form my opinion of you. After the last two eps I have decided you are a good, real person. Welcome to the show and I am glad you are here. God Bless.
Sonja, you are divine. I love everything about you. If I could choose to live the life of any reality star, I would definitely choose yours.
Please continue to try to show the other ladies how to live and let live and not judge.
Sonja, I have really come to love you on the show! You're very compassionate and light-hearted. I think you're a very positive addition and I enjoy watching! :)
When I think of you and see you on the show all I think about is Class, Taste and Compassion. So happy you are on the show because as I see it you are the true balance to this group. I look forward to seeing you on the show.
Sonja, I felt so sorry for you always getting left with Kelly when everyone kept walking away how you just sat with her and listen to her ranting and crazyness i'll never know, you are a great additon to the show you have so much more class than others on there. Hope to see more of you and less of the crazy. Good Luck!
Sonja, I adore you! You have brought such positive energy to group. But I cant wait to see next weeks episode when it looks like you are getting mad...
Here I was all liking you and then you go an side with the mean girls. Ramona should have told her friend of 15 years that she was welcome. I know you would not do that to a friend of 15 years who came out of there way for whatever reason to see you.
Thank you for being such a positive person Sonja. I really like that you seem relatively neutral without being too passive.
You are quickly becoming my new favorite housewife. Take a lesson from Jill, NeNe, Caroline, etc. Being the fan-favorite for one season tends to do something horrible to the ego that makes you think you can get away with acting however you want without consquence.
I'm sure you won't fall into this trap, but just in case, being aware of it can certainly help you avoid it. :)
You are my IDOL woman, I love the way you express your self and the soft your eyes look. There's even the sensation that some innocence in them as well...
Well girl have fun!!!
sonja your such a great addition to the show. You and bethenny are my favorites, your such an awesome woman!
Thank goodness for you! I am so glad that joined the cast! You are just fantastic and you are truly a wonderful person! love love love you!!
Sonja the Wise! How can you all be the same age basically, yet you seem to understand so much? Real Housewives needs your grounded perspective!
Love uuuu!! U r so sweet & straight forward! I ann so glad they brought you on. Jill is too much drama & u balance it out with fun and common sense. You have great style but really enjoy u as a person. Glad u r on the show--- it's refreshing!!!! All the best.
sonja you are a riot and a class act. you looked absolutely hott hott hott in that hot pink dress in st. john!
Dear Sonja, You are a breath of fresh air. It was great the way you handled the situation when Kelly flipped out. I've watched every episode,and I can see that Kelly doesn't always tell the truth. She doesn't seem to hear what people are really saying,and she certainly doesn't get it when someone is joking. She has this thing with Bethenny only because she doesn't understand Bethenny's humor. I think that Bethenny is the one who should be afraid of Kelly. Anyway, I truly believe Romona has a real friend in you. Stay true to who you are.
LOVE YOU!!! Nice to see someone be such a breath of fresh air. Please don't let the show change you into a DIVA and start selling things.
You are the calm in the storm! No matter what is going on with the other ladies, you are always so gracious, and level headed. I hope you stick around, they really need you!
You're a marvelous addition to the show. Loved getting to know you this season. Hope to see you next season!!
I would just like to say that you seem to be the rational one through out the season and just have so much respect for you. I don't know how you can remain calm in such crazy situtions! ;-)
love love love love you!!! your turning out to be the NY apple of everyones eye. stay sweet and sassy!
You are so great for this show. I loved when LuAnn asked you what you were doing on the island and you said you were getting a pedicure. You gave me lots of laughs tonight.
You are quickly becoming my favorite. You were the only one who called it like it was on the girls trip. You hit the nail on the head when you said "We just basically kicked a friend out" when Jill was asked to leave. I think you are awesome and beautiful. Cheers!!
Sonja I LOVE YOU!!! You have added something so special to the show and the dynamics. You always have a positive outlook on everything-thats how I am so I see it. BTW- I love the black shorts, white ruffly top you had on during the "dinner"- which looked great by the way. But that outfit was hot and classy-so you. I also enjoyed seeing you all on the yacht and then meeting the owner of Hooters. Every guy had his eyes on you-even during your party for the arts, the opera singer looked to be giving you the "eyes"... For all of us who adore you, we want to know-----what do you look for in a man? What type of man is the 1st you are attracted to? What type of men would be second and so on.... It also was hard to see how you stuck by Kelly's side when everyone else left, not in a bad way- you where so nice when you could have gone the other way after the comments she mad to you. I guess Kelly had never had a REAL meal prepared by a Chef-Bethenny for example, and that of cook- like someone at White Castle. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Enough==You are a wonderful beautiful and super classy woman. You make humor and laughter out of anything even at your own expense. Love Ya and keep it going!!
Sonja...so glad you joined the housewives. Love your humor...and your ability to be a friend to all.
Thank you for joining this cast Sonja.
You are absolutely delightful and bring a touch of real class to this group.
You are also VERY funny, when Ramona woke you up in bed on vacation you had me laughing out loud.
Keep being you and keeping it real!
Sonia, I adore you! You are so refreshing and fun. How cute you were when speaking in Italian...I am from Italy if you like we can chit chat in Italian any time you want to...the season is coming to an end, I am going to miss you :)
I just have to tell you how impressed I am by your warmth and empathy. I think you bring out the best in all the housewives ( excepting Kelly, who has become a train wreck needing professional intervention.) It's unusual for someone so lovely and accomplished to be as down to earth and sweet as you are and your fans continue to be impressed by you every week.
Girl, you are such a class act! Love the consistent positive comments about others. Hang in there, you're doing fine!! :)
thank you for coming to this cast - you bring the class back to the series which it seems to have lost this season.
Sonja you are great, we all love you. What did you think of Kelly at lunch with Jill, LuAnn and Jen? She either lied though her teeth or she is crazy.
