Sonja, I have been looking all over for that hairpiece that you wore on vacation, aka disaster island! Please tell us where you go it.
Thanks for following me on Twitter http://twitter.com/Sonjatmorgan and my Facebook page. It's all new to me but I hope I am sharing with the other housewives who watch concepts that make them feel they are not alone in the ups and downs of life.
I thought it proper for LuAnn to greet the first guests as I still needed to get ready (and who arrives right on the dot?), and I had been guesting and entertaining international friends in town for Denise Rich's Angel ball benefiting cancer so it was a busy, busy time for me. Firstly, I wanted to snatch that dress that Alex donated and wear it just once before getting it to the consignment store! It was beautiful. But it was a charity for the homeless and that wouldn't be right. Though I have to say it was timeless, so I wonder why Alex didn't keep if it still fits? I like having things in my closet that I know work for me.
LuAnn was upset about the confrontation between Alex and Jill but this was simmering for awhile. Alex was at the point of no return, and there was no way she could let things go. They obviously needed to share some feelings with each other first. With real friends I trust, I speak my mind right at the moment, feelings are exchanged and we move on. No one is perfect and we all have our quirks.
When I put my hair up it is because I didn't have time to blow dry, wash it, or it just doesn't go the way I wanted it to look. LuAnn showed up with her hair and make up done perfectly and had her dress in a garment bag ready to go. I always prepare my own events and wait until the last minute to get ready because I want to make sure my guests will be happy first. I arrange the flowers from the market, or the orchids from Home Depot in my own cachepots, make sure the bar is laid out properly and that the food is presented properly (especially since the food, wine and service is donated), that the room flows, music is right, staff is prepared and knows what is expected from them. I then check my texts, phone calls for friends who lost the address or forgot the time. LuAnn brought beautiful Mums for the garden and I wanted to highlight them as well.
Sonja, I have been looking all over for that hairpiece that you wore on vacation, aka disaster island! Please tell us where you go it.
Sonja, you are the coolest housewife! And if I ever get my lips done, I am taking a picture of you with me to the doctor's office.
LOVE YOU! Puhleeeease don't change. From these few episodes, i see that you are confident, 'all about you' without being cocky (and actually makes me want to follow suit) but oh so caring and it seems that you really love people. I think you are the funniest housewife, too. I have been cracking up watching you!
Sonja - So far so good. Maintain the balance that you have naturally and you will soar on this show. BUT, don't hold back, you are much brighter than most of the other women and your wit is smooth and refreshing. I WANT to hear what you have to say! (Maybe you can give Kelly some tutoring) Sorry, but that woman makes me cringe everytime she opens her mouth. Almost feel sorry for her. Almost.
Sonja, when they first introduced you on the show I felt that your personality was a good match for Ramona and a good balance from Jill and Bethaney. But having Ramona's party with Kelly doing a meltdown in front of you. I personally think that Jill has brutalized her into hating Bethaney, by pulling her into pantries and pulling her into rooms and crying about how she's been wronged and it has blurred the lines. Actually she was quite mean to Bethaney from day 1 and I'm trying to figure out what it was about.
You have a silent calm, grace that is needed without taking sides you are evaluating and picking your fights (none so far) because it doesn't have to be. So far you reign supreme.
Sonja, for the life of me, I cannot understand why your husband would not want to be married to you! You are beautiful, intelligent and sensitive, with a great sense of humor and a love of sex! What more could he possibly have wanted??????? He must be crazy!!!!
You ROCK.... I am so so happy you joined the cast. what a fresh perspective and wow what fun you will be when one of the girls piss you off!!
sonja - i hope you stay as nice as you are. you are a true lady and really add a soft, genuine touch to the show. you a refreshing breath of air. and i think you are an extremely attractive woman. i am straight, but i love your style and your demeanor. please don't change . . .or don't let change you. i will be disappointed.
Sonja! Girl where have you been? You're exactly what this group of women need. You seem to bring out the best in each of them and you try to be a really good friend to them. We can tell that you didn't come in with any preconceived ideas, but we're enjoying watching you form your own opinions. We enjoy it more, becase we see little signs from you that tell us, your opinions are going to be real close to ours.
I can tell that you're in a real vulnerable state right now. I admire the way that you're pulling it all together and getting stronger. You keep going.....maybe this show will be the star in your crown.
BTW, why doesn't Jill have a blog??? Ooooh, nevermind, I figured it out. :)
Sonja - so far you seem to be a really nice person - please do not hang with Jill, Kelly or the countless LuAnn - they are really small minded mean rude women and just plain in bad taste - don't answer the door with they come calling!
Sonja, you are a true breath of fresh air on TRHNYC and not a minute to soon. I love that you show true emotion and kindness that is real and refreshing. I hope the show makes a turn to its true sense of the term "The Real Housewives". There has been nothing real about most of the housewives of late.
sonja i like your outlook on the whole jill and bethenney situation. as well as your outlook on life. its fresh to have a person like you on the show. stay true to yourself, and if i were you i wouldnt hang around jill and countess because the drama will toxicate your life as it did theirs. xoxo
Sonya, you seem to be a genuine, caring, loving spirit---stay that way. You're confident, fair, sane and bring fresh air to the show. Stay away from LuAnn, Kelly and Jill, they are not your kindred spirits.
I love Sonja, she keeps it real, but is also a little spiritually out there. She just has a way with words and seems to stay positive. I see her as finding the love of her life soon! Good job recruiting her, Bravo-- now if you could just get rid of Luann!!
Don't know that much about you but, so far, I love you! You are going to be a great addition to the show. 2 pieces of advice though...(1)Run as far away from Jill and Luann! (2) Keep your appearance simple. You more beautiful when you are natural. Simple hairstyle and light make up. There was an episode where you, Luann and Kelly were sitting at a bar, waiting to be seated for dinner and you looked gorgeous!
Sonja...Your blog is great. It's not hateful or hurtful to anyone. Hopefully it stays that way..You are the nicer of the bunch...Still love Alex though.....
Please run! They are going to eat you alive!!! You are the only one with a american blue blooded ex husband! The Countess doesn't count. Hers ex is French. You are a MORGAN, even if it is by marriage! You are way better then them!
Sonja, You are the newbee so continue to tread carefully. Don't get stuck in the false mire and muck that is around you. Keep yourself real and stand up for yourself, you will do fine. Welcome to the show.
Sonja, I would just like to say with age comes wisdom, and for the moment it looks like you are the only one in the current circle who has it. I wasn't too sure if I would like you. I was thinking okay another superficial, spoiled hag. But you are a beautiful, smart, caring woman so keep up the good work! don't stop looking through your rose colored glasses!
Wow, I really like you. Don't screw it up! Just kidding-- Just don't change and start acting like the other housewives. *cough*Jill/Luann *cough*.
Totally Love You, boy is your comment about exercising with Kelly is so true, don't go running with her, you know our New York cabbies run people over, I'm surprised they haven't run her over yet ... eehehehehehehe
Are you sure that you want to be on the show with them? I feel like they are going to drag you into their drama which is the wrong kind.
Wow, you are a breath of fresh air!! You speak so openly and honestly, I love it! You talk about how frugal you can be and all the famous, rich people you know and its not offensive or overly done. I'm not sure it comes off this way with the other ladies. Most would not admit to being frugal or saving on certain things by going to certain places etc but you are so frank and easy about it. You are a beautiful woman inside AND out and I look forward to each episode to see your reactions to events that happen!
You are so amazing. I LOVE your ideas on life and your quest to check out all options of life. You are a breathe of fresh air.
Sonya, you are beautiful and totally believable as a model. Keep being yourself because you're hilarious!
Sonja - i'm liking you more and more as the show moves forward. You don't take side. As others have said - watch out for Jill - when you and Luann were talking in your garden, Jill was on the phone rolling her eyes and throwing digs. I liked that you said Bethenny is getting married and having a baby - she's busy - maybe we need to support her. What a kind heart you have - you could have just as easily stuck with the mean ladies. Everyone talks about you name dropping...i haven't picked up on that. Take care and stay true to yourself.
Sonja, stay true to yourself. I think you are a refreshing addition to the group. You seem so genuine and nice and say the funniest things. "What am I suppose to do dry & and shrivel away?" I thought that was hilarious. Put these girls in their place when you get the chance!
Now we have a real classy house wife, Of course Alex and Ramona are. Wait, they all have real blonde hair. I guess the word "class" refers to blondie only. You can't fake your soul darling sweetheart Luann and Jill.
Love you!! You seem to have a way with people and respect friendships. You are a fun addition to the show and I look forward to seeing more.
Sonja, i love your blog. you're doing a great job. keep up the way you live and the heck with what others say, some are just jealous.
Sonja, I wasn't sure about you at first - but you're quickly growing on me. I like your attitude, and it's much needed in this franchise! You seem to not take yourself too seriously and that's refreshing too see amongst the housewives.
Sonja, you are a breath of fresh air. The bickering and fighting is so harsh this year and is a bit difficult to watch. I love your tact, class and your " I don't care if you like me" attitude. Show the others whose boss and don't take any crap. Thanks for keep it real.
i think you must be a Taurus. are you? your demeanor and garden (good God, who does BRITISH anymore!) changes and sensuous house point to that sun sign. or perhaps you were born in the year of the Snake, intuitive and loyal to family and friends.
i am not a nut case, i promise, but rather someone who enjoys meeting people and listening to their ''small comments'' within a larger field.
i think your psychic was right on when she said someone like you needs a man in her life so that you're part of the team and go forth working together!
good luck on this show --- beware of toxic friendships, and that would be that jill zarin; what a cheap woman.
i'm incredulous that i'm sending this
Hi Sonja I love watching you please stay away from all the drama your to good for all that but I wanted to ask what kind of dog do you have I love it he or she looks so adorable!!
I admire honest women who are proud of where the came from. If a person comes from an underpriveleged background and works hard to better themself then there should be nothing wrong with that. Why is it that certain women are afraid they aren't good enough on their own? Not all of us came over in a first class birth on the Mayflower.
Be yourself, the striver fromAverill Park NY. Enough of this Morgan nonsense - tell people about your own family. You may find the average viewer has more empathy than you give them credit for.
I like you, you don't take the drama with you and you are very cool and easy going girl.. Happy to know you are a mom, please teach you little girl to be nice and humble like you..
Welcome to the show. Your arrival adds humor, intelligence, and honesty. Please Sonja, stay away from Jlll and Luann's nastiness. Pretty soon Luann will be on those one on one interviews scolding you and pontificating about how you should behave--you know according to "Luann stndards."
The more I watch you on the show, the more I see how I relate. I too being a Sag. try to see the good in others first. Just because two people are a certain way with each other doesn't mean that your relationship with that person will be the same. I love how you speak your mind, not afraid to talk about men or sex amongst friends. I'm so glad you are on the show.
Enough with the name dropping already. Its excessive.Yes we know, you're rich and you know rich people. Blah blah blah...So over you already.
Just saw a bonus video of you with your hair completely pulled back. You have a gorgeous face. And I love your tact, honesty, and thoughtful observations of the other ladies.
Enjoy you and your blogs. What is it with those viewers who feel they are too long? Could it just be that they are slow readers and their finger gets tired going from word to word or could it be their third grade education didn't get beyond Dick, Jane and Spot? Whatever. Keep on doing what you are doing. You are just fine.
Always running late shows that you don't care about anyone but yourself. It is rude, and a sign of a very self absorbed person.
