It's amazing LuAnn found love so soon after divorce. It's also amazing that her and Kelly's divorces are over and final -- that in itself is wonderful! Many times divorce itself can be so messy that it's hard to give of yourself to a new man for a fully committed relationship -- especially if you find yourself a single mother on top of it. I'm so happy for LuAnn and Jacques, their love is doing great things for everyone, including her family.
LuAnn is really making headway and getting to know Kelly. I also want to get to know Kelly better, as you will see in future episodes. I felt so bad for her on Scary Island and never want to see that again. I was thinking that maybe all the negative thinking before she left made it happen? I was trying to stay positive because I promised Kelly I wouldn't let anything happen and that she and I would have good time. I want to keep that promise and make things good between her and all the girls. I like to be the peacekeeper. I love LOVE!
I can't believe they didn't show the front of the restaurant, La Carravagio. It's one of my favorites in NYC. The art on the back wall and throughout the restaurant is by Donald Baechler. He is an acclaimed artist and has consistently donated his art for auction to ACRIA (AIDS Community Research Initiative of America). One of the reasons I support ACRIA is because artists like Donald, Ross Bleckner, Brian Farrel, and designer Donna Karan are making a real difference in the fight against AIDS with this organization.
I'm glad Alex and I have a strong enough friendship and respect for each other to meet and agree to move on. Our friendship is more important than one heated moment. I agree with her that she and I will never completely understand or be able to talk about how it really happened or how it came that she was added to the online speaking roster long after I was involved, or why Simon wasn't allowed to invite himself to speak.
Sonja, please let the MENY go lol. You can agree to disagree with Alex and the organizations posters, it's all good. 3 of the 5 pages a week later still trying to explain is explanation enough. Just support your friends and charities, it shines through without explanation needed.
Not a big countess fan, but LOVED seeing you guys at the wine/guy thing. It looked like a lot of fun, and it's a pleasure watching you guys have actual fun without the drama.
Sonja, I absolutely love the fact that you love LOVE and have that "can't we all just get along attitude"! I think that is why everyone loves you because you just keep it so fresh and fun and you're not really into all of the drama!! Keep being you!!
Sonja .... I still love you - but please do not let this RH fame get you to change ... I like the real you from last season !!
Please remain the lovely woman we saw last season. You were SUCH a breath of fresh air and I fear that your participation in this show is changing you. Your charm, manners and positive attitude are what make you stand out and keep you heads above the rest. Please continue to treat everyone well, that's what makes you impressive.
Sonja, I think you are so sweet. It was clear that you were out of your comfort zone to meet with heart-felt Alex and try to reconcile your differences, and you handled it so sweetly for her sake. That is a true friend! You were hilarious and I couldnt stop laughing at the wine tasting spot in the show. You always say the right thing is such a funny way and people obviously are made more happy and feel better about themselves after they speak with you. That is a real gift and it shines on this show. I also love your friendship with Ramona and how proud you were of her when she gave her wonderful speech. That was probably one of the best moments of her life and you were right there for her and couldnt have shown more support. You are so sweet to watch!
You usually seem very grounded However, please let the MENY incident go. Alex has. You continue to "explain away" and rationaliuze your actions that day, and it is beginning to appear tht you are tying way too hard to do so.
Once I got through your equality march pages, it was a good blog. The Equality March and your reaction to Alex at your house were not your finest hours so I would move on as quickly as I could. Keep it balanced and you will be fine.
There may be parts of the story that are cut out for editing purposes but I thought you were horrible both at your house to Alex, the MENY event and during Ramona's speech. I liked you last season but this season I just as soon not watch you at all.
Sonya - you are so unique! I love how you handle yourself with all the crazy things that happen on the show. While I have never been a fan of the often detached Kelly, I appreciate how you make an effort to listen to her. The Duchess says she has class but you should know I think you do as well. You're very gracious. Good example of women for women.
Sonja, I totally agree with you. Please stop kicking youself for what happened, you were right, she was wrong. If finding her voice means she should follow you around your own house carrying on like a lunatic, I'm happy you found yours and threw her out.
I think you may LOVE love, but only on your terms. As long as Alex loses her "voice" again, you should get along just fine. Seems like you're a great person as long as nobody disagrees with you.
THANK YOU FOR TRYING TO REACH OUT TO KELLY. IT IS REFRESHING TO HEAR YOU SAY THAT IN THIS BLOG AND I HOPE YOU MAKE GREAT STRIDES. YOU, nor anyone else on St. John, helped Kelly Bensimon. If you promised to look after her on that trip, you failed in your promise. I hope you can make it right with her now, and you should. St. John was a COMPLETE FAILURE FOR THE WOMEN WHO ATTACKED KELLY BENSIMON. Period. She was ACCOSTED by stronger, louder women, who systematically verbally ganged up on her. No one wants to hear about what we didn't see on film. What we did see, was PAINFUL. REACH OUT TO KELLY. IT WILL ENHANCE YOUR POSITIVE QUALITIES. AS for "making up" with Alex???? that leaves me puzzled.
Sonja, let it go. Enough already, viewers have already made up their minds and you're not going to change them.
I THINK YOU ARE SO MUCH PRETTIER THAN THAT PORTRAIT HAD PORTRAYED YOU. I FORGET WHAT THE NEW GAL SAID ABOUT NOT SLEEPING WITH SOMEONE WHO PAINTED ME IN THAT LIGHT...BUT IT DID CRACK ME UP! AS LONG AS YOU'RE HAPPY WITH IT IS ALL THAT MATTERS, EVEN IF IT DIDN'T QUITE CAPTURE THE REAL YOU IN OTHERS EYES. AM GLAD YOU SAT AND LISTENED TO ALEX. MAYBE YOU DIDN'T AGREE WITH EVERYTHING SHE SAID---BUT THERE WAS NO FIGHTING! THANK YOU BOTH! I'VE SAID THIS MANY TIMES AND I KNOW IT'S A BRAVO SHOW, AND DRAMA IS WELCOME...BUT WHEN I GET UPTIGHT WATCHING, IT'S NOT WORTH IT. I LIKE TO SEE YOU LADIES LAUGH AND EMBRACE THE FUN THINGS. BEVERLY HILLS HOUSEWIVES WAS CLASSY (FOR THE MOST PART) WITH A TON OF HUMOR AND I THINK NY LOST SOME OF THAT WITH ALL THE AWFUL ARGUING. IT WOULD BE NICE TO SEE THE PREVIOUS BEHAVIORS RE-SURFACE. I ALWAYS PICTURE YOU THE PEACEMAKER....TAKE CARE!
I love you! You are so pretty and such a coquette! You wore a necklace on the April 21st episode that was GORGEOUS! It was black with large overlapping flowers. Can you tell me where you got it?
I think you have a such a lovely way of making people feel comfortable and that is why I know Alex and Simon pushed you into a corner. It must be hard to let go when you are misunderstood. Love and light
You seem reasonably fun-loving and sincere most of the time. But "in one ear and out the other?" why are you so condescending to this person who is trying to speak to you as an adult? Your gesture of showing up and agreeing to "drop it" was totally in your own self interest. Of course you want to drop it! You behaved deplorably!! I wouldn't want it to be brought up again either. Even though you've never taken responsibility for saying that the day was "about you." You should own what is clearly onscreen for all to see.
Sonja, love you! You are very special and sexy! I also love your red shoes you had on this last episode in private party at Cindy's salon-who is that? Want to have those very badly :)
You are such a kick! I think you are so beautiful and your way of looking it life is right on the money. I give you kudos for the way you handle the alex stiuation. I couldnt believe it when you asked her to leave and she keep harrasessing you. Plus her modeling i such a sad joke, she is so unattractive and now that she lost her mind and manners she has nothing but a bi-curious husband. I do feel from the previous seasons she needed to stsnd up for herself but now shes obnoxious. You are beautiful, classy and hilarious. the only ones who should be models in your group are LuAnn... keep being great!
I like you from last season. I don't agree with you so far with this season, especially how you treated Alex and Simon. I just hope you find it in your heart to recognize when your wrong.
Sonja - I loved you last year, you seemed to be the voice of reason and in it to have fun, but so far this year, it's all about you, you, you. Did you actually watch the episode? You must have said, "my day," "you're hear to support me" multiple times. You confronted Alex at your house and then had the nerve to kick her out when she tried to explain things to you, but you didn't want to hear the truth. I hope you go back to being the fun Sonja because the new you is not very appealing. Please don't make me like Kelly better than you!
Sonja, I really was drawn to your great personality last season. This season, since you went up in the pecking order...not so much. You are doing the mean girl and all about you thing. I am surprized about you being the only one talking at the "Meny". Please get back intouch with the Sonja we loved last year. Nice is cool :)
Sonja, I am just wondering if some of your snarky behavior this season isn't caused by a little bit of wine or something before being on camera? I'm not implying you have a problem or anything!!! But last year you were so much friendlier. I like you a lot better when you are a polite friend. I like the "NICE" Sonja.
