I loved Kelly's gift. I do cleanses twice a year. I usually use the brand Colonix or just good old ground flaxseed or pshyllium. I also juice fast. I was LMAO when she pronounced liposuction two different ways and then said I am on her planet with the painkillers! She can be fun when she wants, and it is so easy for me to shock her. So even better. She sooo didn't get my compression garment quip about access. Hopefully someone out there got a chuckle out of it.
Bottom line, I have to be happy with myself first in order to make others happy and to take care of those I love. Now, having said that, everyone has the right to be happy with their body just the way it is. It depends on the individual. So go ahead and get that third Masters degree you don't need if it makes you happy! As Frank Sinatra said, "Whatever gets you through the night."
Whatever Alex's stylist is doing? It's working.
Oh my, nothing like seasoned mothers scaring the expecting mother. I thought Bethenny was going to lose it when Ramona and Alex were going on and on. Especially when Ramona said she got so big while pregnant that Mario wouldn't go near her! I thought skinny girl was going to pass out. She and Jason just fell in love and now this news? I read a lot of "how to" books during my pregnancy. I didn't trust the housewife tales of pregnancy. Honestly, after I delivered my little one, all the bad memories left me. I guess nature does that so you are willing to do it again. FYI - I read "how to" books on every subject from decorating, entertaining, raising a puppy, etc.
Ramona looked great modeling at the atelier's salon, so I am surprised how she came off at the actual show. That scene is priceless and I think we are all grateful for it. My mom never gets tired of watching it! We have all been in a moment where we are mortified and it's just wonderful to know we are not alone.
Sonja, you are a breath of fresh air for the series. You definitely are aware of your surroundings and the people around you. I love they way you are able to handle all situations and keep them positive despite others reactions. So glad you are part of the show.
Sonya, I have to say you are one classy woman. I really admire how you handle Kelly, and the small digs that she and the other housewives dish out. Best wishes in all you do! Post vegetarian recipes!
This passed season was gross and mean. The extra footage show was fun and lighthearted. I wish Bravo would show more of that. However your blog didnt focus enough on the fun lighthearted, you brought up Kelly saying she was attacked etc etc. Just leave her be. Ugh.
you're the best sonja! I will be following you on twitter. Thanks for bringing some calm to the volatile housewife season...sometimes I believe you are the voice of the viewer. I KNOW you were speaking for me when you were watching Ramona's armpit procedure!! OMG I think I definitely would have passed out if I were there. God bless Ramona for having it done-I'm sure she was happy with the results. I hope we get to know you a lot more next season :)
Sonja, Sonja, Sonja
Kelly wanted 1950s style dating talk. "Is it ok for him to feel my boob if my bra is still on?"
You and LuAnn were giving her 1970s style dating talk. "Did you ever wake up next to a guy and you can't for the life of you remember his name?"
Love you Sonja! I think that you are so cool and bring that certain something to the show. I like your sharp wit and style. Also very refreshing. One of the funniest moments of the season for me was when you said with regards to Kelly, not exatly sure of wording but you said we 4 are the sane ones and she is crazy and we are picking on her, I rolled on the floor laughing. Hope you come back next season if there is one.
Thanks Sonja for bringing true humor to the show. It can be done with grace and love and heart.
I'm so over the snarky, destructive, biting "humor" that Bethenny loves to dish out; then, claims innocence. So over it.
Hi Sonja! You are the best--love your look and your wonderful personality. Attitude is everything and you've got the right one. The lost footage was so fun to watch, wish Bravo would have shown more of it. I don't really understand Kelly and think she is full of contradictions but I love her Hamptons house--gorgeous! Looking forward to next season! xx
Sonia, you are a wonderful addition to the show!! The scenes of you NYC chicks having fun together & interacting like "real" gals do, is much more enjoyable than the nasty, backstabbing behavior.
Hi Sonja -
I'm so glad you joined the housewives this season, you are a breath of fresh air, love ya! Anyway, I you mentioned cleansing and Colonix and I just started my first cleanse with Colonix last week and I am loving it! I'm only on my 7th day and have noticed such a difference in my bloated tummy, well not bloated anymore :O)
Thanks for being you!
I hope you are enjoying your Summer with your little girl.
Respectfully, I can tell that you don't favor Jill and Kelly.
Fabulous! If you need volunteers to test/prepare the recipes, my hand is raised. There is a cook book for men called A Man, A Can and A Plan (a chunky board book.) I've used it to teach my children basic survival skills when they are on their own. Your cooking techniques look like they would be perfect in that application as well. Cooking for the young adult,newly on their own. Economical, healthy and approachable. Love it. And yes, your kitchen is beautiful. I'm glad to see you enjoy spending time there.
Sonja - I just think you are wonderful! You are so delightful to watch and a complete relief from the other ladies and their drama. I love your perspective on EVERYTHING...keep it up and hope to see you next season.
You are a DOLL.
Sonja,,I gotta admit,,I was unsure of Bravo bringing in a 'new girl' but I have enjoyed you from day 1 and this last blog seals the deal. You are honest, funny, and to the point. Nuthin phoney about you,,luv it! I look forward to seeing more of you in the next season.
Love you, think you are fabulous! We are all human and therefore carrying around varying degrees and flavors of dysfunction, but I have to say that you seem to be a pretty well balanced individual. I look forward to seeing more of you next season! Hope you have a fab summer!
I hope they keep you, you are a perfect mix, (intelligent, beautiful, witty and charming) I love you on the show; I hope they get rid of crazy Kelly, or maybe not, maybe next season Jill will backstab her.
So glad you joined the show! You seem to show a lot of kindness and tact while still being honest and objective in the midst of all the madness! A very class act! Love you and hope you stay on the show. I love the show, the NY Housewives is by far the most entertaining of all the Housewife series, though I enjoy them all. Love you Sonya!
Sonja, you are my new favorite housewife. at first I thought you seemed a little fake but now I see that you're actually a kind and supportive friend. I hope you continue to be emotionally generous towards the other women and I look forward to watching you next season :) PS: you are beautiful as well!
I would hang out with you any time. You have a very lucky daughter indeed that is going to benefit from all your class and good taste. Can't wait for your sexy novel to hit the bookstores! Looking forward to seeing you next season.
Sonja, you are such a breath of fresh air! I hope you return for the next season - you are so much fun to watch, you keep it real, and you are one classy lady!
I have been a fan of the show since the very first season ,but then I think fame went to a lot of people`s heads. You, on the other hand seem real and sincere. I think you look beautiful and you are a great addition to the show!
Sonja, thanks for your "real" perspective and fun personality. You definitely bring balance to the group and are like pooch parent commented, " a breath of fresh air for the series." I hope you stick around!!!
Thank you for joining the cast..Your approach at this position is so re-freshing..No trying to put a spin on everything that comes up that you did or back tracking.. BRAVO!!!
You are by far my favorite housewife of all the seasons and all the locations combined!! Your genuine, upbeat, non-judgemental attitude is a breath of fresh air. Thank you for sticking to your true self and not allowing yourself to be sucked in to all the drama. Hope you are doing well and I look forward to hopefully seeing you next season!
Thank you for taking the time to blog to us peeps! I really enjoy watching you and Bethenny. Missing you but am so in love with Bethenny new show . I wish you were on it with her. Have a great SUMMER.
you are the spittin all around image of barbara streisand in a star is born. im not kiddin you, check it out for yourself. so glad you are a great part of the show.
I thought your remarks about Ramona's eyes was a clear case of Systematic Bullying... BAHAHAHAHAHAAA
Sonja, I am glad you are on the show. You are cute, funny and a breath of fresh air. Some of the others are fun to watch because they are so awful, but I just enjoy it when you are on because you are great.
I am so glad that you joined RHONYC. You are the new jolt the show needed. You are such a refreshing person on the show.
I agree with you about the liposuction procedure. There are some places that just won't go away no matter how much exercise and dieting you do. It's your body and you have the right to do what you want to with it. If I could afford to have it done, I would too.
Kelly on the other hand, I hope she doesn't return to the show. She is in la la land, with her jelly beans and cartwheels, etc. She doesn't make a whole lot of sense. She rambles on and on. I couldn't believe she told Andy Cohen that Bravo told her she had to go on the cruise with Ramona. Andy quickly came right back at her and let her know that wasn't true. LOL. Way to go Andy, keep her in line. Even in the show on the air, Kelly just couldn't see how she acted around you ladies on the trip. You were very nice to Kelly. You must have the heart of a saint to put up with all of the calamity she caused.
I hope there will be a season four of the RHONYC.
Tell it will be so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now that I've seen enough to know that you are a really special person.....not to mention "quite the literary"...with your blogs.... I look forward to seeing where this goes. At some point you are going to outshine Jill in all departments and she is going to try to find fault with you because she can't handle people who are authentic, beautiful, smart and self-confident!!! You, Ramona, Alex and Bethany have it in SPADES!!! Enjoy your summer as well, Sonja!
Great write up......I enjoy AND agree with your take on everything. Moving place cards is so so tacky. Whenever I go to anyone's home, I never ask the hostess before the event.....Who else did you invite?....Why did you invite 'them'?.....What will you be serving? Yet I see it was nothing for Jill to ask such probing questions.....as the song goes,'money can't buy you class'
Sonja......really looking forward to next year. By the way, I don't tweet and I don't do facebook but I would like to check out your website....however, when I clicked on your link.....nothing happened. Is it just me?
Enjoyed watching you this season and reading your blogs. Can't wait to see you next year! Have a great summer!
I agree with the other posters, you are a doll, and my new favorite housewife. You have alot of tact and grace, which can be lacking between some of the women. I look forword to seeing you next season, and checking out your recipes..
I say it every week, and I will say it again...I just love you. I went searching last week for your toaster oven recipes and couldn't find them so I am so happy you gave us a link! Keep being you! I have GOT to come back next year!
This is the first time I've commented on a blog. I just have to say you are absolutely fabulous, truly classy and it has been more of a pleasure to watch the show now that you are on it.
Sonja- Over and over you have shown us what true class is like in this group. You are honest and real and I love hearing your take on things because I know it's not coming from a defensive position but true observation and experience. Also you are very real when commenting about yourself and your happiness and/or mistakes in life. Thanks for opening up your life to us and if you ever invite me to a dinner at your home, I will sit wherever you put me! ;)
Love to you and have a great time with your daughter and your life until we meet again! xxoo
The first thought that comes to mind is how charming, witty and gracious you are, and I hope this is not rude but your ex-husband must be a fool. It seems you are the 'glue', a odd word to use, but you do everything so well or well intentioned. I have nothing but good thoughts of you and hope you are appreciated! for the lady that you are.
I love how everything you say is so positive. Even when you are aggravated about something, the "putdown" is done in a positive light to make all laugh, not just everyone at the person you are referring to, like the comment about Ramonas eyes in this blog and Kellys glasses in the episode where she took yalls pictures. We could all learn from you and I wish that I could be more like that. Oh, and I totally got the easy access comment LOL!
