Sonja Morgan

Sonja refuses to get caught up in drama when throwing a party.

on Jun 4, 20120

The long awaited Season 5 is finally here, and it will once again be our best season ever! We had the best ratings ever last season, even without our beloved Bethenny (I can't wait to see her new talk show!), and we will have our best ratings this season as well! It wasn't easy at first incorporating FOUR new stars. But Heather, Carole, and Aviva are troopers.

This season is full of glamour, iconic NY locales, international jet setting, parties, fun, and
of course...drama! That's just part of being six women in a fishbowl filming for many hours. That's why it’s called reality TV.

Let me just say you get to know the new girls right there along with me. Even though I had met Heather in business briefly before she joined the cast, I didn't really get to know her the way I do on the show. Same goes for Carole and Aviva. You can't judge a book by its cover. I meet people to like them, but some are onions to peel and others just blow up like a bomb!

Enter Harry! He is one of the best friends anyone could ever have, and we have been friends for decades. He has more friends that anyone I know around the world. He is fun, loyal, and a dedicated father. Witness him at my Masquerade Ball. He is the cat's meow. Being an aquarius he is inventive and very smart. His son with Aviva, Harrison, is a chip off the old block and will go far. He is quite the charmer.

Sonja, the reason Aviva is so hateful and mean to you is because of your friendship with Harry! She came to St. Barth's with the agenda to publicly display her "love" for the "old and fat" rude commenting husband of hers. She wanted to try to show you in a bad light because she wanted to try to embarrass you to Harry! It did not work! have you read the blogs and comments on several different sites? the reason Aviva is "apologizing" now is because the backlash for her has been incredibly and almost universally negative. She certainly deserves the "no class, mean person" and many other comments she has received. Looking forward to the cookbook. Carole doesn't realize it, but many people, from college students, to apartment dwellers, to husbands that don't want to heat up an entire kitchen -- use toaster ovens! I wish you well and support you and your love of life, including Harry as your friend. You certainly came out the winner in this vacation situation Aviva caused. Stay strong.

Sonja, Thanks for showing "true class" by forgetting about Aviva's prosthesis until she mentioned it... as opposed to Luanne bringing it up in the context of being a handicap.

NO LUANN PLEASE

You have a poise about you that makes you interesting to watch. I thought that you handled the situation with Ramona at the dinner table very well. You didn't engage or begin arguing even though I am sure that hurt your feelings and was embarrassing. With that said, I understand where she was coming from. She was trying to hook you up with a man sitting next to you and that comment was obviously a deterrent for him. Maybe if she knew that you weren't interested she wouldn't have said it at that time in front of everyone. Then again maybe if you were interested you wouldn't have said husband instead of ex! I think she could have fixed her delivery but it's Ramona and she loves and cares about you and as long as that is true and you know it, that's all that matters. I look forward to seeing you and her together this season!

Love how you talked about your son and his liver disease. My son also had Biliary Atresia and had a liver transplant at 11 months old. Small world and glad you are open about it on the show and Bravo used it on the shows. I think everyone need to be aware of BA and what a horrible disease it is but that it doesn't define who our children are. Thanks Sonja!

I love you Sonja. I appreciate your authentically benign spirit. You are fun to watch. I truly hope that you find the love of your life this season. I want to see you adored, adorned, and amored! You are my fav housewife! Be happy and please continue to be a role model for the angry, gossipy group.

Sonja- Is there something going on between you and Mario? Watch out Ramona! After watching the new episode I just get this feeling when I see them together.

Sonja,

LOL I also flirt with the men I don't like so much and get shy and awkward around the ones that I am interested in. Haha. But I loved the guy that Ramona had in mind for you! Give different men a chance, I hear it's worthwhile plus he was so hot!! I see you with a very attractive dark haired man by your side!

Super hot dress at your party I loved it!! As always you are a pleasure to watch and altho I was upset that Ramona was rude to you at her dinner I also remembered why I love you so, you are so light and easy and let it roll right off of ya. I hated seeing you cry on the previews :( Be well!!

Cool as a cucumber and as beautiful as ever. Some things never change. ;) I adore you and love how honest you are. You are open about your struggles and that makes you very relatable. I love that you may be the one housewife with the most strugles right now, but you only mentioned your charity and your free blog. Such class, others should take notice. I see a "frugal chic" spin off in the future?

Sonja you are FABULOUS! Your gorgeous....Always the life of the party and you're KIND. (Except for some spoiled behavior at the Gay Parade) Your my favorite and have been for the duration of your time on RHONYC. You have the knack of bringing LIGHT into some very dark situations on the show with your wit and bright smiling face. Keep being you! You're LOVELY.....

Sonja you are my favorite, you are truelly a class act. You have no problem holding your own around the others and do it so gracefully. The only thing I ever diageed with was your comment a few seasons back about the pecking order in regards to Cindy.You know your at the top and that's all that mattered, I didnt think you needed to tell her. Anyway you come across as a strong funny and even show your vulnerabilty which makes you a pleasure to watch. Have fun this season!

With Alex gone, you were the only cast member bringing me back; you did not (and will not) disappoint. I hope you and Carole get on, because she is a great addition. Only time will tell. Just keep being you and your fans will be happy!

Sonja, You are the only "old" NYC housewife that I absolutely love to watch. You just make me laugh out loud all by myself every time I see you. I think you could say "Hello, how do you do" and I would be on the floor!! Some of us just have that quality to make people laugh and you are most definitely one of them!!! Good luck this season!!! Don't let Ramono or the "Countess" bring you down! They seem to be in some sort of power play already....ugh....

As much as i LOVE your reaction/lack of reaction to the narcissistic passive-aggresive crazies....you REALLY NEED TO CALL LUANN OUT..........IN FRONT OF EVERYBODY She is a classless hypocrite who "shoulds" all over everyone [Alex was dressed down for starting an encounter at a party several times by her majesty!] then engages in the same behaviour. When you ignore her arrogance, YOU ENABLE IT. Maybe if she were called out on the spot in front of "God and everyone" in the same manner she chose to start the disruption she MAY be embarassed enough to STOP She will never admit being in the wrong; but she may STOP. MONEY DIDN'T BUY *HER* CLASS, THAT'S..........FER SHER!

I really like like you. Stick with the new girls. They seem very sofisticated, but in a good way. Ramona seems to be more nasty than ever so far this season. And as far as LuAnn, well she just a dried up old has been and should have went with Jill.

Sonja, I think you have a real ability to show your vulnerable side and yet have fun, make fun of yourself, deal with life's difficulties ( be it plumbing or legal issues) and have some idea of who you are. This is the "other" housewife I watch beside Orange County. And you have made it such a pleasure, although, you know....of the guilty variety. Thank God Kelly is off the show. All I'll say about her is that is was just uncomfortable to watch her. As for Jill, I'll miss her....I think the fame monster got ahold of her for awhile but she deep down seems lovely. Alex, I like, in a "oh, is she still around" kind of way. LuAnn kinda drives me crazy but I covet her wardrobe. As for the new women, jury is out. Oh, yeah. Ramona. I find her totally inauthentic on every level and an opportunist of the first degree who has not resolved whatever damn issues have dogged her all her life. I think she is insufferable. Always have. Enjoy watching the show along with us, beautiful Sonja!

Sonya, how can someone not love you. After all your trials and tribulations you smile, laugh and entertain. I am so glad you were invited back to the show. You and Ramona are the olive in the martini. Love you both!
