A Real Hoot
Sonja gives her take on the wild time the wives had at Ramona's bachelorette party!
OK Bravo viewers, I promise I don't only talk about sex! I talk about homemaking, cooking, gardening, yoga, charity, fashion, art, travels, friendships, but it seems the lines about sex attract the most attention! At the end of the day if people find it entertaining and feel better about their own situation by relating or even feeling superior, that is fine with me.
By the way, on Saturday Hollywoodlife.com is posting a video of me making one of my toaster oven recipes. Everyone asked for them, so check it out on YouTube! They are all less than $20, 20 minutes, and VERY simple to make. My aupairs always take them back to Europe with them on index cards. Can you imagine their mothers when they say they want a toaster oven because Mrs. Morgan uses one???
It was nice of Ramona to pick me up on the way to the airport. I am not a morning person and she made sure I made it. It took a lot for me to give up my usual control mode, and for once, let someone else be the hostess, since I am usually the one hosting everyone. It's nice to have a friend who is also a gracious hostess and who reciprocates. I am sure everyone out there knows what it feels like to have people use them, give nothing back, or worse be "on the take."
I was anxious not knowing where we were going, but Ramona made it first class from the start and you will see how it ends.
I am happy LuAnn has this exciting opportunity with her song on iTunes. It keeps her young and vibrant and I give her credit for going after what she wants. Lord knows one can use a distraction during divorce, and it's great to feel you are again successful on your own, with your own identity. We run in a tough crowd, but one cannot live in fear of their dreams. I agreed with her producer, she has star quality and it's fun to watch and take part. I have sung several summers with Ivana (I'm not a singer) in front 2000 people in St. Tropez at our friend's home, and I do it because it's invigorating and because they let me! Maybe LuAnn will join us next time. Everyone gets a giggle out of it.
So fun going through the Vix swimsuits with Ramona and feeling the joy of her hard-earned hot figure. I gifted her one of the sexier suits because I knew she could pull it off. It's inspiring that she looks so great, not for her age but for any age.
Ramona started a conversation at our first lunch on the boat about what went down with Jill. Kelly attempts to take the high road to defend Jill, but women do need to express their feelings in order to bond. I had no place commenting, so I'm thinking...when is my pedicure? And... aren't we on vacation here? Also, I was wearing a fabulous swimsuit. Hope you people caught it. It's at least five years old and owes me no money. Always hand wash (in the bidet - you saw my cribs on Bravotv.com? Tee Hee)!
Did you catch my new motto? May I never suck the air out of a room. Kelly liked it!
I was very proud of my husband, and very proud of our marriage, our families, and my ego took it between the eyes when we split. My obvious happiness and open, sharing nature made me vulnerable to people with ulterior motives. I don't operate that way and was raised in a community of 1500 people where one is held accountable. Most of all to God. He doesn't care about prestige or power. In the end he cares about ordinary people doing extraordinary things for the people in need that they find in their lives. We ALL do this on some level and will only feel good about the things we have done on our last breath.
I know Ramona said it was a bachelorette party, but puhleese, after my Martin cocktail and my limit of wine at dinner my friend Kelly "Patron" Bennsimon brought out these espresso shots that turned out to be tequila! I thought the tequila came after, not in! That along with PMS, the time change, the stress of our first day, feeling a little self-conscience seeing how fit the ladies figures were, and the memories that were flooding my senses, I became emotional. Bethenny and Kelly were so kind to stop fighting with each other for once to bolster my confidence by saying I look amazing, hugging me, and actually feeling my pain. Both of them did! Looks are not everything but every woman wants to look, feel and be the best they can.
Kelly throws out a lot of adjectives and at times is judgmental. As this story unravels however, we find out, real or not, that Kelly feels strongly that Bethenny attacked her family in the press. That is very serious. However, she offered no evidence. I am looking forward to getting to know both of them better.
The Hooter boat was the perfect ending to the bachelorette party. The girls were gorgeous and fun to meet. Though I have to say my edits were harsh, they are sure to cause a stir and that's what we are here to do! I had to ask Kelly to move aside so I could see the Hooter girls, otherwise, I would have fallen out of my chair and into Ramona's lap. The entire Hooter group was gracious and made us feel beautiful as well. I had to call it a night for obvious reasons so Kelly and I went back to the boat. How did you like my dive on Kelly? I will get her to loosen up and have some fun eventually!
