Sonja Morgan

Sonja doesn't apologize for who she is -- and rises above those who criticize her.

on Jul 26, 20110

I cringe when I see that argument between Alex and I. It really is a testament to our friendship that we got through it. LuAnn is right. Alex and I weren't close before, but we got closer after the fact realizing our future together is more important.

Kelly gets upset when Alex is nervous? Why? Because it makes her uncomfortable? The question was why is she belittling Alex's feelings and calling her weird. That's not nice. But I think when Kelly is nervous the adjectives just come out. She herself said she is not comfortable with 1970s-style feelings.

People think that I pay for the parties but they are comped. The restaraunts are happy to host my clientele, because they are notable and can afford highend restaurants. Also I am happy to give them the exposure. Its a win-win for both of us. I love any excuse to celebrate love and life. I'm blessed to have both! Also a lot of my parties are for charity, and the vendors donate things or a portion comes out of the ticket price (per usual in the world of charity functions).

The best comment from Kelly is when she says she has no idea, and it's not her business when she is referring to her comments about my house not being mine, or clean or organized. She can say that again. What would make Kelly make mean-spirited comments about me? I have been nothing but kind and respectful of her -- protective in fact. I broke the ice between her and Ramona before we went away because I wanted her to be comfortable after our last trip. She said she gets uneasy around powerful assertive women, but this I deserve?

Didn't care for the burlesque thing show, not meant for t.v. definitely, but other then that, team blonde made the season interesting and fun to watch. Real people with real problems and yet managing to be entertaining week after week, that just makes me smile.

I pretty much agree with what most of the blogs say. At first I was uncertain about you, but I quite like you because you are NOT judgemental. Love that.

You truly are my favorite NYC housewife. I love your honesty and your ability to be candid about things that other people would be afraid to address! If it had not been for you and Ramona (my other fave) this year, I probably would have switched the channel! Thanks for keeping it real on my favorite "Reality Show"!

All the women at one point or another have made fun of you, and yet through the entire reunion, and all you have been through, YOU, my lady are the one with class.

Sonja,

I think you are the only "Real" housewife! I love you and the simple fact you don't play the games and continue to stay true to yourself! Keep it up and sorry you have gone through so much lately. Life will become better for you as you are a strong woman and good things come to good people!

You were voted the favorite by BRAVO fans because you are real. Kelly,Cindy & LuAnn seem like ice cubes to me.

Love, love, love you Girl! Don't change a single thing about yourself. You were the only one who was not catty or nasty. You are a class act, especially because you are so honestly YOU!

You are my favorite. Bethanny was until she left..and now you are. Luanne and Jill are such bullies. I can barely stand to watch them.

Sonja, you really are hilarious but I think you should keep that saucy side on display while you're on the show. That snotty, "I'm friends with Snooty McRichpants" thing is not a good look, honey.

Sonja is the best! I think of all the women on the show, I could have Sonja as a friend. She is kind, a good hostess, funny and elegant and bawdy. Rise above the rest, you are like that Phoenix bird, rise up out of the ashes! I am dying my hair blonde tomorrow LOL!!!

Ramona and Sonja should have their own spin off show and/or the RHONY should all be fired except Sonja and Ramona. They are the only 2 ladies on the show worth watching. The rest of those pathetic and boring trolls have to go - i can't stomach another season of Cindy, Kelly, LuAnn & Jill.

Sonja, I love you and Ramona the most on the show. I don't know what Bravo was thinking hiring Kelly and now Cindy. Ugh!!! They are so boring and have ruined the show. Kelly and Cindy are totally beneath you and you handled yourself remarkably at the reunion as I knew you would. Keep your head up Sonja. I wish Bravo would recast the show and keep only you and Ramona. You ladies are a joy to watch!!!!

You are my favorite by far. Definitely the most down to earth, even if you may be full of yourself sometimes. I just see you as a woman who has a healthy dose of confidence and knows she has sex appeal. You're definitely a survivor and shouldn't listen to the white noise and jibber jabber of the other ladies. I

Sonja you really took at lot of heat in part 1 of the reunion but I have to say that you remained cool under pressure and very poised. I think you're fun and you don't take yourself too seriously. Those are the qualities that endear you to the fans. Yeah....Team Blonde. Those other ladies need to chill out already!

Sonja, You seem to be the most genuine and compassionate of all the cast members. I'm not a psychologist but you also seem to be the only NY housewife free of a personality disorder characteristics or in Kelley's case a full blown psychosis. I hope one evening on Watch What Happens live they do a count of how many times Cindy says " Don't tell me what to do".

Love you Sonja, you and Ramona are so funny, crazy but funny. BY far, you are my favorite one on the show. I can't stand the brunettes, especially Jill and LuAnn, they are full of themselves, Kelly is plan weird and Cindi is a disappointment although i did like her in the beginning. Dont ever change, I myself am a blonde too and know for a fact that blondes have more fun!

Sonja I love all your clothes, makeup and mostly your hair color. Please tell me who does it because I just broke up with my hairdresser after a long relationship. There are not many people that can do a blonde as perfect as yours. I live in NY. I wish I would just see you walking by my office so I can run and hug you.

DEAR SONJA !

Listen, you are simply....fabulous. I couldn't agree more with your blog re: Kelly. We all understand that ANdy's phrase, "voice of reason" is nothing more than clever sarcasm. After Scary Island (NOT), Kelly owes her life to you! lol. You were the one who 'held her hand' thru the entire trip. And you didn't even know her! (generally speaking...). All Kelly needed to say at the reunion to you was, "I am sorry for miscorrectly judging you". Enough. She is the WIERD one!

p.s., I am recently separated and feel I can sympathize. I cheer you on! You always brought light and energy and entertainment. Love YOU!

You are the best -- please keep keeping it real. And do not feel the need to answer any of Jill's rude questions.

Sonja- I love you! You are the most real person on ANY of the Housewives shows. I couldn't believe how rude Cindy was. S###w her. Jealous for sure... I totally get what you are saying about pecking order... never bite the hand that feeds you and remember who's who cuz you may need them in your corner some day... You deserve all the best that the world has to offer. I could watch you all day...Cheers to the most striking of any of the housewives... You rock it baby!

I love you Sonja, your real and funny and you laugh at yourself. I'm sorry for your money woes but that ship is pretty big and you know your not alone. So many people have been effected these last couple of years. I know you will recover. The other ladies have just been an embarressment to all women as far as I'm concerned. It has become hard to watch and I don't think I will continue to watch the show so I'm hoping you to get your own show like Bethany did so we can all continue to enjoy you.

Sonja, I love ya, but just give up on trying to redefine what "pecking order" means. It does not mean the Golden Rule. You said it. You meant it. Now, just plain regret it, and move on.

Sonja, Kelly attacked you about your means of support and your house and then on the Reunion denied it. She even when as far as to say that you always "do that" to her, whatever that means. She is not a nice person and I don't think you can trust her.

Sonja, I love you. You are my favorite housewife, and I love the devil in you! You are also a sensitive and reasonable woman. Cindy has been behaving like a petulant, belligerent child. She is emotionally immature and does not know how to process her feelings or communicate effectively. I was APPALLED at Cindy's behavior at your home when you had invited her for breakfast. She was incredibly rude, and seemed to be treating you like a waitress, or sibling or worse. Totally disrespectful, rude behavior. Then there's Luann who has such a sharp tongue, and then denies everything, even after watching a clip of her condescending, acerbic nastiness. That is certainly not classy. Class involves not being condescending in the first place, and if you do happen to lose your temper and do it by accident, then you catch yourself, compose yourself, and apologize. Puh-lease. Take a look in the mirror mean girls! Love you Sonja!

Hi Sonja, You sure have been through a lot. And I hope things get better and you are happy and find love again. Through this season, you have shown a different side to yourself to us. At first with the attitude to Alex I really didnt care for it. Then I saw you evolve to being a geniune friend with the gals that cared about your feelings and support you, Ramona and Alex. Thats one thing anyone can see is that Alex is geniune. Ramona too. It was inexcusable for the other women, the burnettes to abuse you with remarks about your house and the financial difficulties. It was vindictive and mean. I have to say I have had a few tears when you were in tears. Although I do suggest more modesty in underclothing or keeping it hidden hehe. Hang in there. I support you.

PS- Sonja - I'm a Smith College grad - I know you'll know what that means - so, I appreciate your poise and honesty - these other HWs have absolutely no manners - Cindy at your special friendship breakfast shows what low-brow behavior she lives by. An embarrassment.

Keep yourself the gracious lady you are.

I love you!!! You handled yourself with such class and grace. I have liked you from the beginning and you are my only hope for ever watching this show ever again. The other women, except Lu Ann, sounded absolutely ridiculous. Made me want to scream...I figure when that kind of emotion occurs because of a tv show, then I better stop watching.

Sonja, stay just as you are. Anyone of intelligence can appreciate your kindness, honesty, and free spiritedness. It is obvious that Ramona and Alex truely appreciate you as their friend and support you in these trying times. As for the others, they are not only very insecure, but mean spirited as well. One of them (who will be nameless) is in desperate need of psychological help as witnessed on the boat with the last trip Ramona hosted. She is consistantly insulting others and giving out her unsolicted advice. She is evasive when questioned, and simply does not make any sense most of the time when she goes off on her rants. I can respect that she is probably a loving mother who is protective of her girls, however she would really benefit from some therapy. I am saying this from concern and not to be mean. I suspect this will probably never happen, as her perception is so delusional. I think you really tried to support her but it got to a point of insanity on that boat where you, Bethany, and Alex had come to realize that this girl had really gone beyond any help that you could provide. Part I of this reunion revealed some raw emotion but, at the same time it revealed who were the sincere, as well as those who felt the need to insult others. Emotions were running very high and everyone should have shown more restraint but I sure is easier said than done. Best wishes to you in the future and keep positive like you have been.

Sonja, You are absolutely my favorite housewife. You're classy, kind and I can't tell you how much I adore you. You are so much fun to watch. You could give the other housewives lessons on being a class act. Love ya, Teri
