And then. . .double date dinner. What is this!?! It turned from a girls' trip to a fragmented mess. I don't think Carole has much experience hosting. I'm just grateful she scored the house. She had her hands full with her new BFF, A-Diva. Then, it was convenient to have a couples dinner since her "rock-n-roll sometimes lover" who lives in LA and tours most of the year was in St. Barths and they could. . .
Heather and I both said it, we have lives in New York that we took a trip from. I have a house with hurricane damage to repair, a daughter to take care of, and could have gone on dates with my at-home dates! I don't have to tell you Ramona has the same story. Why are we here if the host is enabling A-Diva's bad behavior? THIS is why we didn’t want men here in the FIRST place!
The ENTIRE dynamic changed and at that moment, what was the point of any of us being there? When I say men I mean significant others. Before we left, Russ was not a significant other. CarolE said he would be working most the time. He was staying in a hotel. She candidly admitted herself to A-Diva while shopping that they both slept with other people.
Sonja, You and Ramona were very rude to Aviva when she arrived on the trip. Carol invited her, Carol was also there to meet up with her boyfriend. That does not make it a girls trip. I think you feel like Aviva is a threat to you. You and Ramona both started the entire problem. You all do not have to be the same. Aviva obviously was not going to be running around drunk and naked with her husband there or not. I think you should get a job and let go of your servants that work for free. Your living in a dream land. SHOW ME THE OVEN GIRL!
Sonja, I LOVED what you said to Aviva. her lack of compassion and self-serving attitude needed your words which were honest & to the point. Hey, I've been through the divorce etc...not fun, and I'm sure not fun with the cameras rolling. You are genuine and a lady! You needed this trip and you and Ramona were just having fun. Red carpet for Aviva? Yeah right
Thank you for being you you are a beautiful lady inside and out. Blessngs to you!
Sonja, Sonja, Sonja! I am so proud you put Aviva in her place, stood up for yourself, got up and walked out the door! Bravo! You are yourself and there is no better thing to be. We all do things we regret and things others do not understand. Water off a ducks back. God Bless. I wish I could give you a hug. Haters are like crickets. They make a lot of noise and then when you walk past them...silence. I doubt anyone would have the nerve to say nasty things to your face - except Aviva. But you can handle them. Vidi Vedi Vici!
Hello !! Are you people and Khbrook, watching the same show as I am? I do agree that Aviva did carry her rant to far and too long. Then we have Luanne, who cheats on Jacques with that greasy Johnny Depp wanna be then makes up a stupid lie about the nonexistant Italians. But Sonja's constant naked hanging on to Ramona and spooning with her at night, taking Luanne's sloppy seconds and having no shame at all. Then Sonja and Ramona get so drunk and are so narcissistic that they didn't even go to Carol's boyfriends concert, which is why Carol invited them all on the trip to St. Barts, now that is about a low class as anyone can get. I am shocked that you all seem to be o.k. with the outrageous behavior of Sonja and Ramona they both acted, Tacky, Rude and Disgusting .. Loyal friend to Carol .. Far from it !! What horrible examples to set for your daughters !!!
Don't be too upset with A-Diva for her "White Trash" ranting. It seems she's trying to project what she feels about herself onto you and Ramona instead. She comes off as a very angry woman that has many issues to deal with...poor Reid and her children...they have to live with her potential ranting every day!
You look great and you are a loyal friend. Aviva exhibited the lowest class behavior by being a bad guest. Carole was the hostess and Aviva should not have disrupted her event in the manner she did. Beside the fact that what she said was untrue and judgmental, it is incredibly rude for her as Carole's guest to begin name caling and insulting fellow guests.She sure didn't take the high road.
I agree with an earlier poster. I LOVE your fun-loving spirit and you are entitled to have your kind of fun. You are a sweet person and don't let anybody bring you down. It doesn't matter if embarrassing things were said or happened because we viewers see your heart and know you are a good person and we love you. I'd rather hang with you and have fun then go around thinking everybody is morally inferior. You are entitled to have FUN on vacation.
I am you biggest fan Sonja, since day one that you came to the show.
Lots of luck on your toster business. I hope it is a big success.
I have only watched this show for about 3 years now, but I have to say that over the past season, I have really grown fond of Sonja. It takes one hell of a woman to stand up to Ramona when she doesn't get her way & Sonja does it with class.
There really is no going back after the things Aviva said to you and Ramona. You might all want to be careful, though, as it seems like you're giving the New Jersey Housewives a run for their money.............and that's not a good thing.
amberquerque Agreed. Despite the fact that you and Ramona were trying to avoid Aviva (I would have done the same), you should have gone to the concert for Carole. I can only assume that you regret that decision?
I think too much alcohol has dimmed Ramona's memory. Why DOES she drink so much? She has a loving daughter and a totally devoted husband?? Also, her health is great and she has a successful business!!! What more IS there?
sonja, you are such a breath of fresh air. i love your love for animals and am sorry you lost your beloved milou. he/she was adorable! aviva is jealous and bringing reid only made for a very awkward situation and i thought you guys were so nice to allow it to begin with.
Love your free spirit but do you not care what a hot mess you look like when drink to excess as often as you do?
i do like having rob around makes me feel safe. not really a girls only person but a-diva bringing neil is NOT the same as Sonja doing girl time with the girls then going out and getting some fun late at night. u r right u wont be with her at 2a but if u say u want to be on a girls weekend and then bring hubby and make plans that include him you are wrong sonja keep on your single self u go girl A-diva i so wanted to like you such a shame you turned into such a -diva oh look up two faced cause it isnt sonja.
Sonja honey i am worried about the alcohol words sometimes we say and do things well you know. i love u best so please take care.
it was absolutely out of line that ADiva lambasted you and Ramona in that manner. WOW.
I'm with you totally with regard to AD's behaviour, and only wish you'd take a step back and look at how both you and Ramona behaved toward Heather in weeks prior.
I love Sonja and Ramona! They make the whole show with their fun loving attitudes! Keep the fun going Sonja and Ramona.
Sonya, thank you for all you do to help homeless animals. I also have been rescueing animals for many years and your compassion towards people and animals is obvious to anyone. There was nothing inappropriate about your behaviour on the trip nor any other time during the season. Aviva is such a completely nasty woman, concealed by her pretty exterior. If her behavior in St. Baths was just a one time occurance, that she truly regretted, she would have been apologizing during her voice overs AND in her blog. She clearly only halfway apologized in her blog once she saw that everyone was beginning to see her for what she is. No matter what she tells you later on, this woman is not your friend, and I would never, ever trust her again. I do think that you and Ramona were ungtrateful towards Heather during the time that she was helping you with your ad campaign, but I'm sure that editing cut out some parts of the story. Anyway, glad that you're on better terms with Heather.
@cuddler66. So you condone her practice of NOT wearing any appropriate undergarments when wearing dresses, the better?? That fact has greatly contributed to my opinion of her ever since it was mentioned on International television. She has minimal self respect, seriously delusional regarding new business ventures and poor judgement when relying on best friends. I won't even get into self proclaimed importance in "society". No thank you.
Motorcitywife Trixiegirl She's flashing people's husbands? Where have I been? Oh Hell no.
All women's bodies are beautiful! But clearly all women's behaviour/attitude is not, as proven by you and Ramona on a regular basis. You and Ramona truly are white trash and should be ashamed of your disgusting behaviour. If anyone ruined the trip, it was you and Ramona.
MBrownsuperstar omg...how can you say that? aviva is so pretentious and pompous. she should have been humble and kept reid out of sight or at a hotel preferably. it was a GIRL'S week and the ONLY reason he came was to get her to the other girls. aviva ruined everyone else's time from about 10 minutes after she arrived! who the hell is she to judge sonja and ramona and call them names? she then says she's leaving unless carole kicks them out! she should have just left and done everyone a favor.
@MBrownsuperstar Excuse me... Did you watch the show? Aviva was insane and out of line and absolutely killed the vibe. It was a girls trip!!
I agree with a lot of these posters. I think Aviva got more and more out of control,little by little, even before this trip. Maybe she WANTED to be there alone but couldn't because of her fears. You didn't deserve all this from her and even Ramona tried to smooth things over but nutty Avia wasn't having it. You really don't fight or pick on anybody, you are pretty neutral so I don't know why she picked on you. She was acting like a crazy school teacher or something..or a nun.. she does have a lot of anxieties as Ramona said.
Sonja...you are such a breath-takingly beautiful woman. You are such a Hoot and I love you to pieces. You love to have fun and know how to have fun. You are someone I would definitely love to hang out with. Adiva was soooo out of line with you. She had a broomstick stuck up her keester the moment she walked into the St. Barths house and was a total Debbie Downer. She really wanted all of you ladies attention to be totally on her the moment she walked into the door.. I love you gal and don't change for anyone - you are Awesome just the way that you are. Big Hugs going out to you...
Sonja - LOVE you. You were really supporting Aviva and she just pulled you right down with Ramona. You were wronged and reacted and Aviva, with all of her continuous reporting on how sensitive she is did not realize it. She was so self-absorbed. Everyone has anxiety and it is only when it stops you from enjoying life that it should be seriously addressed. She got on the plane, was fine and tried to bully, control and segregate throughout the entire trip. Name calling is never okay. We got that she owned it but what did she learn. We keep cracking up from when you told her she was a piece of work. LOVE YOU!!
Sonja, you are compassionate and a smart woman. Aviva and Luann could take lessons from you honey! don't let Aviva bring you down. she's nothing but her high class education which apparently doesn't teach you how to behave or treat people!
FairIsFair Well, It was fine when RaMOANa and SonJa ditched the girls multiple times in Morocco last season! How is that less egregious than Carole wanting to spend time with her man (the reason she went to St. Barths in the first place)?
ID RATHER BE YOUR KIND OF "WHITE TRASH" THAN ACT LIKE THAT STUCK UP SNOB! YOU ROCK SONJA!!
@blackberry Sonja, has lived through a lot, and she really knows how to get a job done, and get in there and work. The scene of Sonja and Heather, and the toaster oven shoot, was not a realistic picture of what Sonja is like. She can be silly and overboard for the show. However, there are some spoiled, at times helpless girls on this show, but Sonja isn't one of them!!!
I really enjoyed this blog. You are very smart and think fast on your feet. I noticed you didn't go to Aviva's level but kept it at an intelligent level. Aviva has many issues, her problem, not yours, not Ramona's, not Luann's, not Heather's, not Carole's. Keep on enjoying life and embracing live to the fullest.
Sonja you are so much fun to watch, the spit fire, sexy and sweet and innocent women all rolled into one. Twenty years ago, I could have kept up with you buy now. You need some young stud and world traveler to dance and energize you up. Oh by the way, my brother fits the bill, he is a musical producer and entertainer 58 married once, body of a 30 years old and energy that does not quit. You and Aviva are not even on the same planet, she is sweet but very phobic and obsessive compulsive, you are go with the flow and compensating for an inner sadness/depression. Each person must deal with their own problems, you can only change yourself and not other's. Aviva could be a good balance for you there is a different person between you, who would have both your trait, I guess this is very metaphorical is it not. Hunter
Hmmmmm, Thoughtful words.....We are not accustomed to hearing such passionate words and common sense from the men on The NY Housewives. This show could use a man just like YOU (or your brother) to be Sonja's love interest.
I'm so glad you can see things clearly. You didn't deserve the judgement and hatred from Avia. It's not your problem, it's hers. I'm glad your not willing to do anything to keep her in your rolodex.
Talk about double standards - "her father" :&
You girls had a great dynamic going before Aviva got there. The dynamic completely changed when she arrived. We watched it! The problem was Aviva just could not let it go and just enjoy beautiful St. Barths. You are on vacation. Let it go. Hash it out when you get back to NY.
sonja - i'd beware of friends who guide you into anger and intolerance. those are not friends.
I for one think Sonja is awsome. Adiva is a mental case which showed up on the Island. Another Kelly all over again. I feel for her and her anxietys. I have them & panic disorder, but you just don't dump that stuff on other people. What she wanted a banner & wanted the women to go kiss her husbands butt, seriously?? She should have stayed home. When she got there she ruined the whole trip. I saw bits of Avivas strange personality earlier. Did anyone but me notice how she fawns all over people SHE thinks are important. I love Ramona & Sonja.
Miss Sonja, I am with you on the whole girls trip thing, Carole is so sweet but too wishy washy. She didn't manage her company or plan very well. It's like having a costume party and only telling a few people to dress up..I'd be pissed too.
Sonja I'm on your side: Aviva's needs attention; she overreacted. I'd steer clear of her if I had to be in her world. She's creepy.
Sonya, Aviva's comment at breakfast "Well it looks like the girls' trip has evolved into a coed trip," said it all. Aviva knew exactly what she was doing and I believe she uses her so-called phobias as a way of hanging on to her husband.
