Sonja, you are a hoot! Stay lighthearted and fun!! Don't worry, you are absolutely right about Cindy being rude for breakfast.
I thought Alex's hair and makeup was the best ever by the fire pit with the family and her friends. Just stellar. She does have a point about class being something better not spoken about in certain situations. Grace under fire in this group should suffice!
Ramona's lunch with LuAnn is a disaster. As far as being a parent, my view is no one is perfect, and what is important is that your children know you are there for them when they need you. Why is LuAnn so upset Ramona doesn't want to do the video? I would respect Avery's point of view. Furthermore, there is nothing wrong with Turtle Time on vacation! Oh no, then she brings up the fortuneteller again. Boy oh boy, these girls really can give it to each other.
Jill was the perfect choice for our visit to Dr. Eric Braverman's PATH Medical suites.
Xudoung Fu must have found Jill and I to be fine specimens for the Brain Electrical activity mapping. This is to test the balance of ones neurotransmitters. This controls cravings and feeling of satiety. Turns out my brain is too fast and wears me out! I'm also learning that weight has a lot to do with sleep. Sleep is everything! Getting to bed early and getting eight good hours takes the weight off your mid section. Many of us. Moms take advantage of the hours when the rest of the family is sleeping to pay bills online, clean house, return emails. Not good! Hormones are important too. No wonder they used to drown us in the old days, and say we were witches! We keep living longer and longer and are not equipped to do that without help from supplements for brain health. The brain controls appetite and mood. Dr. Eric Braverman's nutritionist extraordinaire Christina Santini gave me vitamins and food tips. Wow! You saw the difference no? When I met with the plumber from Liquidtech? And with the Feng Sui expert Judith Wendell? So healthy! And my waistline is back! I am so grateful to Dr. Braverman for helping me get on track. I love his facilities and to be able to treat Jill. They have everything you need under one roof. "I don't want to be raisin like". Check out his website they have free quizzes to see what nutrients your brain is missing and needs.
Back to Jill, I like that she can joke about guilt and drama with me and we move on. I think we have an understanding that we want the best for each other though neither of us are perfect.
Sonja, you are a hoot! Stay lighthearted and fun!! Don't worry, you are absolutely right about Cindy being rude for breakfast.
Cindy was very rude and from what I see rude to everyone. Who let her come on the show anyway?
I am a great fan of yours!!
You are just the coolest. You look great and you don't need surgery. And you are one of the mature members on Housewives NYC.
I felt for you when Cindy pulled that 'I'm so busy and important' power play on you in your own kitchen. She has serious issues & I give you alotta credit for not going off on her. Why would she put that call on speakerphone anyway? She could have held the phone to her ear & heard everyone, she didn't need for them to hear the whole room. She's just obnoxious.You handled that in a very sensitive way, like you understand she's not in touch w/ social skills. Where on earth did you ever find sugar free peach puree?? I can't find it anywhere & those bellini's looked so good! Of all the ladies you seem the most socially adept. I'm rooting for you to 'hold your own' as Ramona says. I'm sure you'll come out on top.
I would give anything to have the self confidence you have on the show. Is it real or do you have another side of you?
Hi Sonja: I am just so entertained by you. I must say, though, you're beginning to remind me of Big Edie a bit. Your situation is beginning to remind me of that depicted in the film, Grey Gardens! Go easy sista....you've got to pace yourself!
Hi Sonja, Cindy was rude and disrespecting you in your own home "shushing" you and telling you to stop. that's alot of nerve. I think Cindy should brush up on her manners.
Sonja, Love the scenes with you and the blondes. I really can't get into the burnettes this season, acting above everyone does not make one very liked. Keep up your go ofball ways, love to you and the daughter.
Sonja, Don't worry so much about losing your home.....where ever YOU are, is home for your lucky daughter. I know you will get through all this mess. Best of everything to you!
I used to be a trainer at Equinox..actually several of their locations in the city. Until my kids got to an age where I needed to be home more. I would have loved to have you as a client. You are so likeable, funny, and up for new things. Not to mention stunning! Forget about Cindy. She is rude, boring, and unattractive inside and out! You, Ramona and to some extent, Alex are the only reasons to watch this show anymore. It used to be kind of fun..when Bethenny was on and the show revolved around more than parties and functions. It seems to have run it's course. Now with Kelly and Cindy..who bring nothing to the show, it's just not great anymore. But YOU are the bright light! So keep being you and maybe..just maybe they will get smart and bring in Cat from DC. That would make it great! Take care.
Cindy was so rude to you when you had her over for breakfast! She has no manners. And to bring her assistant along also, REALLY? You remained very cool, think I would have escorted her to the door.
I think you are 100% correct in your perception of the other women and their motivation, as well as your explanation of your own personal course direction. You really do not have to explain yourself, but it may be insightful for those who are less informed. Go Sonja!
Sonja, I love that I can always count on you for honesty, fun and positivity. I enjoy watching you and reading your blogs... Stay just the way you are! :)
I am amazed how well you handle multitude of your responsibilities. I think you are forgetting that many of the viewers work for leaving! LOL
I just love you Sonja, I really do. I find in you a generosity of soul...a certain kindness that comes from within you. You are a good egg!
You are one of my favorite housewives, I love watching you! You are such a character and fun-loving at that.
Love watching you Sonja! Out of all the NY ladies, you are the most relatable for me. You seem to be a very well-grounded, free spririt. I can't wait to get your toaster oven book. I am into easy, quick, healthy meals. You rock!
I love that you chose to stay home for your daughter. The others will find any reason to criticize and justify themselves doing what they want, regardless of others. Love that you stay close and connected with your daughters!! xoxox
Sonja, Congratulations on maintaining your priorities through this obvious stressful time. Your choice to not break your routine with your daughter was mature and loving. Good for you for having the sense to stay grounded. Good luck to you in this trying time.
Sonja, it was great to see you and Ramona working out at Equinox! I laughed so hard, because I've been on those same treadmills. Great gym, and great job last night! Keep up the good work.
You are so real and funny. Your my favorite on the show. Keep your chin up things are going to work out fine for you.
I think you are my favorite! You aren't afraid to be yourself! You are direct and classy. Through all the destructive things going on in your life, you keep it together. That is what true class is about! I think you have a wonderful future ahead of you, keep your head held high and take care of business. Your true friend are there beside you to help if you need it. I too thought it EXTREMELY rude for Cindi to take a conference call in your kitchen! What was she thinking?? If she had business to take care of she should have cancelled!!!
I hate the way Luann treats you, she is no friend. I don't think she knows what the word means. Jill clings to her because she likes hanging with a "countess". I still can't believe Jill doesn't see that it's because of Luann's interferring that she and Bethany are no longer friends, so sad!
Thanks fro keeping it real, we love you and wish you nothing but the best!
Sonja, all i can say is that you are fabulous, how you react to the people around you that just want you to fail (JILL) is amazing.you are stronger then i could ever be, kudos' to you. keep your friends close and keep your enemies closer seems so easy for you, you are good! keep it real, we love that about you!
Love you, love you, love you, Sonja!!!
Taking a conference call while a guest is indeed rude. Cindy not only seems to be having a hard time finding her spot in the group, she has a real problem with boundries as well.
I hope all of your worries are soon behind you. Keep loving yourself.
Hi Sonja I just LOVE LOVE LOVE you, you are a breath of fresh air on this show, always keeping it classy. You are beautiful and fun and a free spirit, elegant and crazy. i wish you were my mother or sister , an aunt or friend. you really are a terrific person and ALWAYS outshine everyone because you always try to stay in the POSITIVE . every women should have a female like you in their life to show them how to LIVE IN every moment and not let life pass by . Thank you for being YOU
Sonja you looked great in this episode!!! I do think Cindy was being ridiculous...I understand she's running a business but if that is your priority, then why bother coming from "breakfast"? If you are the boss, then they can schedule around you...
Sonja,,you're the only one out of this group that I would spend any time with. The rest are just toooooo damn fake, pushy, and down right snotty! Call me anytime for toaster oven breakfast,,I will come in my jammies and bring the champagne. And! I promise to leave my cell phone at home,,ha!!
I agree...Cindy was soooooooo rude during your thoughtful breakfast!
You and Ramona add so much fun to the show! Thank God you and Ro didn't do Lou Lou's music video! UGHH
So...I'm confused. If your daughter doesn't approve of you being in a music video; how does she feel about the burlesque performance.
You looked great at Alex' party...Brian appears all the time where you are...I hope you're enjoying him "company" because the man is HOT!!
Sonja, you are such a lady. You don't put others down, know matter what has happened you seem to stay neutral. We all could take a lesson from you.
Wow. Cindy was very rude to arrive with her assistant and set up her office at your breakfast table. That she thinks it is okay because you were "friends" is sad. She doesn't seem to know how to be a friend.
SONJA, I USE TO LOOK UP TO YOU, BECAUSE NO MATTER WHAT THE OTHER LADIES WERE FIGHTING ABOUT, YOU ALWAYS STAYED OUT OF IT AND LOOKED FOR THE GOOD IN PEOPLE, BUT KNOW YOU SEAM TO BE TAKING SIDES, WHY NOT STAY FRIENDS WITH EVERYBODY AND LET THEM KNOW, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO GET IN THE MIDDLE, LUANN WAS YOUR FRIEND TOO. KNOW IT SEAMS LIKE YOU WANT TO HANG WITH RAMONA, WHO IS NOT A NICE PERSON AT ALL, IT'S LIKE SHE IS TRYING TO BUY YOUR FRIENDSHIP,AND KISS UP TO YOU, AND ALEX IS THE SAME WAY. I KNOW YOU HAVE ALOT GOING ON, AND I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST, JUST DON'T FOR GET THE OTHER LADIES ARE THEIR FOR YOU TOO. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.
Hello :) Just had to say that I couldn't believe how rude Cindy was when you had her over for breakfast. She brought her uninvited assistant and had a conference call, unbelieveable!! She seems to be very unaware of her behavior. Sonya, you were very good at standing your ground with her to let her know how she acted.
Had that happened to me I don't believe I could have handled it as well as you did.
I completely understand you need to spend time with your daughter. Mine is 17 and she still wants to talk my ear off after school to tell me about her day, have her snack and drink and go grocery shopping for dinner. I appreciate this time because it is so short a time that they want our advice and undivided attention. I relish the time. Sorry about the breakfast with Cindy. She is the most rude person I have ever seen. You are right. It is a message. She would never have done that to Jill.
I was thinking the very same thing about Alex at the fire, she looked stunning :) ...your cocktail dress was gorgeous, and you looked extra gorgeous in the Art Show scene!
You, Ramona and Alex all seem to have your hearts in the right place...the season has been really fun!
Love You Sonja.....Cindy is rude and should have let you know about her call ahead of time, plain and simple......you tried more than once, just let it go....you have bigger things to take care of.....
