Film for long enough and you are bound to see good friends have a tiff!
Firstly, I didn't blow off Ramona, Carole, and Aviva for lunch, I was sick. I was sad to miss such a beautiful lunch with goody bags! Ramona is always so thoughtful and goes out of her way to make her girlfriends happy. She takes you to lunch and brings a gift! I would think anyone would be appreciative. I'm staying with her this weekend in the Hamptons, and I am sure that my stay will be nothing short of spectacular!
Ramona and Lu always have tension between them, exclusive of me and all else! I love to tease both Ramona and Lu because it confirms to me that we are real friends that I can play with like that.
I spend a lot of time in Europe and have met plenty of royalty as Lu has, so I enjoy joking about her crown at dinner. In Europe, a title like Lu's means a lot, is stressed often, and is aaaaallllways made known in an introduction. I know in America it isn't, but believe me it is in Europe! I am here in Venice, now as I write this, and I can tell you every title has been made known at every lunch, dinner, and occasion. One's heritage and roots is something to be proud of and cherished. I think that is why placement seating at parties is so popular here. "Placement" is where they put a place card with your name in front of your plate so everyone knows your full name (including title if you have one). Sometimes just the last name says it all. Especially if it's Windsor, Malbrorough, or Borghese. It's not quite like Cheers!
I am glad you are still friends with Ramona, BUT HEATHER AND LUANN ARE MEAN GIRLS TOWARDS Ramona.
I KNOW SHE DOES TALK TO MUCH, BUT SHE HAS HER HEART IN THE RIGHT PLACE,
I so agree that Heather, being the new kid on the block, should have invited everyone in an effort to get to know all of the ladies better. She only didn't invite Ramona for spite and then lied about it when asked. If she thinks it makes her look like a stronger woman, she is so wrong. It just makes her look like a troublemaker and a liar when she is confronted with the truth (as it came out of her own mouth) . At least Ramona has the balls to say it to your face and own it - Heather could take a lesson. I am extremely disappointed in Sonja for at least not being supportive of Ramona, which seems so unlike her. I guess she is afraid her head will be the next one on the chopping block if she doesn't play along - and she needs the job.
Sonja, u r 2 freakig funny!! how can anyone contol u ? you cant fit sonja morgan in a box !!
have a wild n freaky summer as only u would have
I love you and Ramona! You two have been friends a long time and don't let LuAnn come between you and Ramona like she did with Bethanny and Jill !! Jill & Bethanny would have made up if LuAnn wasn't CONSTANTLY in Jill's ear and pulled Jill away from Bethanny when they were trying to make up. I can see LuAnn already in your ear & trying to create a wedge between you and Ramona. Don't let her do it!! And I agree that you should go on the London trip, but I also can see why Ramona is upset with you. Ramona should not have brought it up at your party (but hearing all the other girls talking about the trip & not being invited understandably set her off). She was looking for you to support her & you should have pulled her aside and said I totally understand why you're upset and I would be too. If you said that she would have been ok, but she was hurt that you didn't back her and made light of the akward situation she was in. Also. .. LuAnn went behind her back trying to get the other girls against Ramona, so not being invited to London I'm sure really hurt her . I hope you can resolve this with Ramona. You two are the cool/fun ladies and always have a great time together dancing and being silly. ;) I hope you don't lose that. Good luck Sonja! :)
I enjoy you on the show, but I have a question. What do you do for a living? I know you have been working on a toasteroven book for a couple of years now. That is not yet for sale so you don't make money from that. You don't, or shouldn't be anyway, get paid by the charities you work for. You get paid to do this show but I'm sure not nearly enough or your home would have been fixed a lot quicker than it was after the storm.Just wondering...
"Lu" usese the Countess title when it will serve her best even though technically she is no longer one. I don't think she knows how to be true to anyone because years ago the countess title went to her head.
Ramona has a great deal of business savvy but social skills she lacks. My adopted mother always had "gifts" for "friends" or would go out of her way to do something for them. I thought that was how friends were made. I learned the hard way (and she has never learned) that friendship is a two way street.
I hope your divorce settlement is soon and you can be out of limbo.
Sonja, you are right about Ramona. Her feelings are hurt. There is no way I could have treated someone like that! Exclusion? How rude. I am not impressed by Heather. But she is so fabulous we all know she could care less about how Ramona feels. I would keep that in mind when she decides you are not worthy.
Sonja Morgan is divine. Love her. She is the ultimate Upper East Side New York woman who makes the rest of us Manhattan girls look good! Can't get enough of Sonja. Sweet, sexy & fun!
Love your strength and your fairness in judgement of character. In earlier seasons Ramona has withheld information from so called friends to see them squirm for her own entertainment. It seems Heather is making her decisions based on her own experience with Ramona thus far which makes her a strong personality (and frankly, a good judge of character). It's nice to see you leading your own life and not dancing to the tune of pino grigio.

I think that Ramona was hurt because she was the only one not invited. I agree Heather didn't have to invite her, but she is the new female on the show and the trip should have been getting to know all the ladies. Heather and Ramona both talk a lot; even the other two new ladies stated that, so maybe it was a misunderstanding. At least, Heather could have been honest with Ramona to let her know why she didn’t' invite her. I just think coming on a show and inviting everybody except one person is very rude. No matter who it was if one person wasn't invited that person would have felt hurt. If I Heather invites Ramona, I think Ramona shouldn't accept, because she knows Heather really doesn't want her there.
I love your carefree spirit and attitude on the show. I was a little turned off this episode however when you were talking to LuAnn about Ramona. I would think that knowing that they dislike each other, talking negatively about either one to the other is just calling for trouble! Other than that though I do agree with you regarding Ramona at the party. I think that it was the wrong place and wrong time and Ramona should have known that. But I also know that you know Ramona and that she is impulsive and says what she thinks and feels when she thinks and feels it. I also think that she was really hurt by the fact that everyone was invited but her on top of the fact that Heather wasn't being truthful with her. The fact that Heather knew that she knew about the trip and everyone but her being invited and she still didn't mention it but was being overly friendly and smiley with Ramona rubbed me the wrong way.
I am glad to know that you and Ramona are still friends and that over the years you have realized what a great friend she is even with her faults. I have to say that this season she has become a favorite of mine and she has seemed to grow and change a little bit. She seems happier as well as she doesn't seem as confrontational as previous seasons. Of course she is going to make mistakes along the way including this weeks episode at your party but the fact that you forgave her and you are working through it is the important part. I look forward to seeing more of the two of your crazy antics together this season and i think that's one of the main reasons I am so upset about her not going to London!!!
Sonja, Ramona was wrong for getting upset with you because you accepted an invitation. You were wrong for lying to her and meeting LuAnn. You are suppose to be a friend you should have been honest with her and not talk bad behind her back. Don't forget what happened to the other ladies that got fired. You can be next.
There is nothing wrong with being friends with the other ladies on the show; I just think it will not be in your best interest to stab Ramona in her back as a friend. The two of you really clicked as friends and it came off very genuine. Bravo will not get rid of Ramona. It will not be RHoNYC without Ramona.
It seems like you need a lot of help developing a career. I hope a cookbook of recipes for toaster ovens will be successful.
Dear Sonja, I love how you dress, you have great style. I think you should start living in the present and focus on your future. You tend to give so much importance on titles and all that just like the class less, phony, ex Countless. You seem so much fun and good spirited but I find it silly how you love the name droppping, Churchills, Lord Fluffly etc! I Those are your exes friends!!! I . Go to London and have a blast!! Hopefully you will get to have some tea with the Queen, or Churchills or with some royal friends you have there!!!
I can't believe you didn't talk to Ramona because of that dress, both of you were petty. Ramona because she took the dress and bought it, you because you would end a friendship over it. I would have told my friend "now that you bought it, and I found it, you must give me custody at least once." Maybe friends mean more to me than a dress. Also, I wonder if Ramona did it as a joke, it is pretty funny!
Amen to your wise philosophy. Ramona did act badly. It was not your issue & should not have been laid at your doorstep during your party. Ramona is inappropriate. Honestly, I felt embarrassed for her bad behavior.
If it were a few girls ..but all were invited but Ramona. That is rude. A "true" longterm friend would have said..Oh Heather "the reality new friend" great, has Ramona agreed to come?
And you mention dis-ing Ramona to meet Lu, that is a new mean streak in you...
I personally felt you two were close and if I were invited and my friend was not, (on purpose) I would not go. And yes Ramona reacted in anger, but you were so flip about it! It could have been handled better by both of you!
I love your easy going personality and your ability to make people around you comfortable. However I hate how you deal with your interns. I like your closeness with Ramona however she bugs me but you were right to speak your mind to Ramona
Were you addressing that cute little " intern" by her last name like the Dowager Countess summoning her lady's maid?
Love your class and humor regarding the whole Ramona incident. Bravo for taking the high road. I would just tame your narcissism a bit though. There's too much of "look at me look at me". Just keeping us laughing! Thanks for keeping things light!
If only I could let things go like you do. Instead, I take everything on and live with anxiety and panic disorder. You make me smile and laugh. Thank you.
Sonja, you are just so funny. I love the way you handle yourself. I am sure live has given you some blows, but you are still such a sweetie.
Don't give Ramona so much latitude for her inappropriate behavior. I love the fact that Heather doesn't let her get away it or let herself be manipulated by her. She should be following Jill right off the show...in fact she should have gone first.
Sonja, your "social media intern" needs to practice their skills. Just looked at your Facebook page, and it's a mess. Clearly cross posting your tweets to Facebook from TweetDeck is not working.
You didn't tell the Countless that you skipped Ramona's lunch to meet with her instead? I guess all the viewers must have misheard. It is so sad that you are obviously in dire financial straits and still clinging by your fingernails to your society friends. Friendship or no friendship with Ramona, you are not about to pass up a free trip to London or anywhere else. It is sad to watch you.
If I were Ramona there is no way I would go even if I got asked now. You should just make an excuse not to go, shame on you. A true friend is a true friend. Heather is spiteful and mean. Don't like her and I hope she is not on the show long.
It is so obvious you blew off Ramona's lunch - you said so to the Countless. The whole world knows you are broke, and it is obvious that nothing, not even friendship, would stop you from freeloading on the London trip. Shame on you.
You say being Ramona's friend is accepting the way she is....listen to me, you don't have to settle for a friend like that, why let yourself be treated that way? She is toxic! You always seem to have so much more fun when she's not around!
Seriously, an intern is just an unpaid servant for you. That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. Reminds me of when Kramer got an intern on Seinfeld...I think that Kramer's intern learned more!! Sonja, that just makes your look unbelievably cheap and self-important, not to mention pretentious.
Did we all miss the part, where Ramona is in the bathroom saying, how Sonja is an airhead, has diarrhea of the mouth, and a few other things? Yes I understand Sonja doesn't really care .. but .. come on .. you have to draw the line some where. Mario instead of saying, stop .. Sonja is your friend .. just agrees with her. With friends like that ....
I think Ramona felt bad because out of all the housewives she was the only one not invited. She must think she should be invited by default since she's on the show and part of the Housewife group.
OMG...what is with the interns? What do they really learn from you except that you appear to be lazy. I enjoy your crazy ways, but acting as if you are funning some Fortune 500 company where you need an intern to feed you is ridiculous! i fast forward thru your parts.
It was very sweet of you to understand Ramona and not get in a fight with her. She was WRONG to bring that up at your party.(esp. since it was in your honor). I think it would be fun to be your intern. So much to see and learn...how wonderful for a young lady.
I hope the stuff we see of the London trip was fun stuff.
I think you are soooo FAB!!!!! I love watching you in action. You show such poise at the same time you are very free spirited. You make it seem so simple to do all that you do. I wish you the best of luck in all your endevours.
@Picket@fence Heather is not obligated to invite Ramona to any event, party or trip. Heather is honest and is not going to play games. Ramona suffers from delusions of grandeur in addition to acting overly dramatic, rude and needing to be the center of attention at all times. Ramona has not matured emotionally beyond her teen years and acts like a conceited and petty high school girl.
@itznia You got it with the everything you want to be you're not. It's not laughable. It's pathetically sad.
@LLinTexas Gotta agree with you on that one. I love you, Sonja, but you are just looking for cheap labor that you can boss around. I can't believe any self-respecting student would actually agree to do this "internship."
@AnnPF Puh-lease! The real party was 2 months prior! This party was a set-up for the show...and Sonja, you said that you blew off Ramona for Lumann. Ramona was right, you need a notepad, if only to keep on top of your fabrications.
Totally agree also, what can they learn from Sonja? How not to hold onto money? other than that they are just servants.
