Small Steps

Aviva explains why she loves Carole, why she could care less who Harry was with, and what she thought of her first one-on-one with Ramona.

Let me answer a few specific questions first. I was overwhelmed by how many of you blogged or Tweeted needing information about prosthetics. I never would have imagined the need for information and I am humbled to be a voice for the amputee community.

So, for a realistic looking great fitting prosthetic limb, email Amy Winters at A Step Ahead Prosthetics (Info@astepaheadonline.com) or 516-681-3484. My prosthetist is in Hicksville, NY. They are amazing at making comfortable, functional, and realistic looking limbs (arms, legs, whatever ---at this point I wouldn't mind a prosthetic head).

To those who admired the grey jacket I wore in the boat house scene (I know!), it is by Dolce and Gabbana, Fall 2011. My brown Lace dress I wore at Sonja's party was made by Kim Hicks. I ordinarily would leave these kinds of things out, but you asked, so I am telling! Oh and the sweetener I use is Stevia. So we have covered fake limbs, coats, dresses and sweeteners. Now on to more important matters. Gossip and drama!!!

Having dinner with Heather and Jonathan was great for a lot of reasons but mostly because I love being with Reid. He is my best friend and soulmate. He is the rock of our family. We all fight over him and race each other when he comes through the door after work with hugs and kisses. Reid is the most incredible father who dedicates his time to work and his family. I am very lucky and appreciative.

It was nice for us to get to know the Schindlers. Reid and I tend to gravitate towards other couples who have strong marriages and who are good to one another. And the Schindlers seem to be that kind of couple. I brought up my ex-husband (Harry) being in real estate as a point of common interest between us. It might sound salacious on TV that my ex-husband had relationships with some of the women, but frankly when I am sitting next to Reid and I am happy as I can be, I could care less. It is worlds away from where I am now. As long as Harry's and my son, Harrison, is happy, I am happy. Harry has a lovely girlfriend right now named Georgia. She is good to my son in every way. I am thrilled.

As you could probably tell, Carole and I had a blast shopping together. One of the best parts of this show was becoming friends with Carole. Carole is intelligent, funny, and experienced. Nothing shocks Carole, which makes her easy to talk to. Most of all, she is not judgy. Carole has a calm about her and an appreciation for humor. Carole is a real girl's girl and vintage shopping was filled with fun and laughter!

Carole made me feel so pretty when I tried on that leopard jumpsuit. I knew after filming that day that we would be close friends. Not to mention this very weird alternate universe of reality television that we both got ourselves into: talk about an odd set of circumstances to bond women! But clothing shopping, in addition to being a great treat, can be very telling. Is the woman you are shopping with focused only on herself or also on you? Think about that next time you are crammed in a dressing room half-naked with one of your girlfriends. It can all be very uncomfortable if not with the right person. But I found Carole to be incredibly supportive and would shop with her anywhere. I think Carole could have rocked that leopard jumpsuit so much better than me!

My first one-on-one with Ramona was lunch at Fishtail and in retrospect I was a bit overwhelmed by Ramona's theatrics and the darts she threw from the get-go. . .Clearly, Ramona takes some getting used to (Maybe my Stevia sweetener would work on Ramona!).

It felt really odd to be thrown into an argument at what I (naively?) thought would be a nice getting-to-know-you lunch. I was definitely not at ease. Chalk it up to inexperience, or whatever, but this was not my favorite moment. I may have been too cautious (or not cautious enough) in dishing it out. But have no fear, my fellow blogosphere friends: it doesn't take me long. As you will see, I get more comfortable expressing my positions to Ramona in the weeks to follow. I stand up for myself just fine, thank you very much.

One must start off one step at a time. Given my circumstances, I am taking very small steps. . .

Sonja: Don't Take Yourself Too Seriously

Sonja explains why she and Ramona are family, why she's hiring Aviva, and why LuAnn is still her friend.

At this point, I am numb to the whole BookGate debate. I am not on anyone's side, I just hope that both books are bestsellers and that Carole and Aviva are making enough money to pay the bills with their books because BookGate has definitely taken an emotional toll on their friendship. I know that they were close and had great times together. In fact, Carole was once the godmother to Aviva's daughter. How can this come between them? Such contention over the accusations! I don't know why they let it get so heated. It's not worth it! I just hope that they can forgive each other at some point. As you get to know someone, you get to see their strengths and weaknesses -- and you have to accept those if you're going to be friends.

I was surprised when the girls laughed at me discussing my ability to forgive and voicing my Christianity. I think that it is one of the reasons that I can live my own life and not worry about everyone else's or the grass being greener. It's all relative. We are on Earth for such a short time. I am enjoying every day of my life. I am grateful for the family and friends that I have and my beautiful daughter.

I have so much more than many other people, and I remind myself of that every day with the charity work that I do. That's why I feel so much more comfortable working with artists, animals, the LGBT, and children. It's such a sensitive, caring, and loving place to be. I love my Sonja In The City event planning business because it lets me be me -- an artist and a promoter -- while helping others reach their highest capabilities. Plus I get to do all that while helping me get my daughter through school in a stable environment. It keeps me connected to the movers and shakers who help me manage my investments. I love to produce and to contribute. It makes me feel good.

I believe some of the women fail to take me seriously because I only show them my party side. There is a private side to me that most people don't see, because they only see me out at social events and while I'm entertaining. I throw a lot of events, so a lot of people only see that side, as it's my business and the way I broker some of my deals.

It is amazing how moms like Heather find strength to do dealing with their children's issues, like her son's health and hearing loss. It's what we do with loved ones. We do it with marriage partners too! I surprised myself when my ex had a terrible accident and I was called upon to deal with all of the doctors, therapists, and financial advisors.

I dont feel that Ramona called Aviva vile. She said that she had a vile side. That's different!

I'm not upset that Ramona spoke behind my back about my financial problems. She's human, and I spoke my feelings then and we worked through it the way that family does. We have too much water under the bridge to let opinions or men get in between us.

Heather questioning the legitimacy of my friendship with Ramona is just silly. She knows that we have been friends forever and whatever I have said about Ramona I have told her to her face. Heather knows this very well -- since I'm very upfront about my feelings with her.

The girls saying that Aviva's leg throw was staged is silly. I let Aviva know that everyone was saying she was fake. Even if she plans to throw it on the table to make a point, that doesn't make it staged. It just means she was pushed to a limit. I thought she was hilarious. After all, it was a private party in the back room. We weren't in the actual restaurant. Aviva doesn't go around throwing her leg around in normal restaurant situations. Maybe she and I should take her act on the road! A real dog and pony show! I always said I was a performer, a comedian, and a producer. At my Sonja In The City parties, now we can include Aviva as part of the show!

My overall thoughts of the season was that the reunion had more drama. I felt the season flip-flopped around quite a bit. Harry and I will always have a very strong relationship, just as Ramona and Aviva will always be in my life. Aviva's son Harrison is like my family.

Ramona was definitely going through something this season. I let her know I was upset, but I can't change her and she can't change me. We accept each other the way we are and we work our differences out.

I didn't know LuAnn was going through a breakup. She never shared that with me, and I was getting upset that she wasn't trusting my friendship and was blaming me for everything. I didn't give any credence to any of the rumors that were going around town through the salon that Satoko worked at. Kristen and I just asked the facialist to tell us for fun. I can't stop LuAnn from running out of parties with my guys -- just like I can't stop Harry from taking off and leaving me because he knows I want commitment and he wants to fool around. But that doesn't mean LuAnn's not my friend and that I can't speak my mind in front of her, and it doesn't mean that Harry isn't someone that I love as well.

I hope that you found the season entertaining. I hope that you don't take yourself too seriously! And when the naysayers back you into the corner, just say what Glinda the Good Witch said to the Wicked Witch of the West "Be off with you, your black magic doesn't work here!"
