One gets festive at holiday parties and on holiday vacations; that's why they’re called HOLIDAYS, not WORKDAYS. With my smaller body frame, of course the after dinner tequila Lu Lu, Heather, and I shared is going to hit me first. While the rest of the girls were raising their eyes at me, Lu and I were raising the French flag on the butler in the kitchen. Tee! Hee! I have to go back to the big girl syndrome. Heather and LuAnn are amazons compared to me, and I’m a lightweight! I was there to let my hair down (and as you’ll see next week even my top). I lived in France, and as a young model I soon learned the pleasures of topless sunbathing and swimming. It's like wearing a necktie at the pool once you experience this. All the more the reason to stay in a private home rather than a hotel! Especially in Europe.
I do have to wonder what happened to this trip being a girls’ trip? I loved Russ, he is very cool. He and Carole are very sexy together, and I told them that. Carole’s like the HOTTEST woman on Earth. We saw that at Thierry Badereau's Thom Beach when she wore her swimsuit! Wow! When Russ came, I offered to leave the table because I was cognizant of the fact he and Carole were on tête-à-tête, and it was only a matter time before the after dinner tequila shots set in.
It would be like one wife coming along with a group of husbands to Vegas and expecting the wife to be comfortable! I’m not in St. Barths to be on my best guarded behavior in front of Carole’s boyfriend, I’m here to have a blast and blow off some steam. I've been working really hard on Sonja Home Innovative Living, booking Sonja in The City parties, maintaining my charity work, combating the hurricane damage at my home, managing my assets, and most importantly being a mom. All this when not shooting RHONY!
You have to love Ramona! Of course she went straight for the master suite. I mean Carole did give her blessing to choose whichever room she wished, since she knew she'd be far from us in the private bungalow below! And I am glad she did... Sonja in the bungalow? No! Sonja in the suite! Put the wet blankets in the bungalow. It's Ramonja time!
And Sonja, you telling Carole that she's a bad hostess was hilarious! A hostess is good to all of her guests and Carole is the epitome of good to ALL. Should she have served food from her toaster oven?? Which reminds me of how easily you find it to take advantage of others and have work done for you for free. Heather is a professional as was the whole team she got together to design YOUR little toaster oven package. You were rude to argue with them, hold them up by being late, demanding things, etc., when they're doing something free for you. Same with the way you treat your unpaid interns and assistants.
Acting like you "deserve" things without paying and throwing around your name will certainly bite you in the butt.
Aviva I love you and quite frankly I agree with you. I don't like drunk class-less nasty women. I know that some of it is made for TV. I liked Sonja until she screamed at Aviva and slept with Tomas behind LuAnn.
Good for you standing up for yourself , you didnt need to tell Aviva's husband anything it wasnt your problem it was her's. She needs to act like an adult with a disability not a child. I understand you and Ramona are BFF's but you do need to watch out for your reputation. Clips for next wks show look good and im hoping your conversation with Aviva is getting through to her your not going to be her lap dog.
I love you and I love Ramona. I always have. I love how you ladies let it all hang out. I am not sure why Aviva makes her phobias everyone else's issues. She needed her head pat for making it to St Barths. Really???? She is a grown up. I think she seeks a lot of attention because she has a disability. That is not fair. Be true to you always. You are fantastic!!!!
Sonja I've always liked you, but you need to jump ship on Ramona, she is taking you down severly. Ramona always makes a big deal when she believes someone is talking behind her back and yet she is constantly talking behind everyone's back, including yours. You are better off without her...ugh.
KimC Amen, about Ramona talking behind others backs. Geeze, how many times has she been caught talking about someone at a party? Then she blames others. She can dish it out, but can't take it.
Sonja, It is obvious to me that you are so hurt by your divorce. I think when you behave a little over the top (and I use over the top losely,,,you deserve to have fun) it is because you are looking for acceptance! Ramona is not in the same situation with you but loves a drinking buddy. You often are the friend that goes down with the fire! Realize that sometimes friendships need boundries too! Heather really did want to help you and Ramona tried to ruin that because of jealousy. Why didnt she try to help you out? Also Ramon is vindictive...I think you sometimes pull qualities from Ramona that you dont carry. Did you notice you were hurt by Avivas words but Ramona wasnt? Its because you are more genuine...you were not the attacker to Aviva but Ramona sucked you in! Then when you were hurt...Ramona fed that instead of helping ease the situation. Aviva is by no means pefect but.....
I think you are the greatest Sonja Morgan! Keep your head held high, you did NOTHING wrong. Aviva is just one sour puss. Sonja, you are a breadth of fresh air, you add a high quality to the show. You add charm, charisma, you are loyal, you are understanding, and you are kind. I applaud you for sticking up for yourself. YOU ARE SIMPLY AWESOME! <3 YOU! YOU ARE AWESOME! :)
I agree, but it can....My problem is that her and Ramona were out and not thinking twice about it! Can Soja see how Ramona was with Jill and everyone...
If the dog was the only issue, I would have missed too but I would have called her at the time!
I hate that you got your feelings hurt - Aviva is well educated, for sure, but also misguided and totally misjudged you. I hope by now that things are clearer and harmonious. Love your joyous nature, and wish you every success in life and love. You were hilarious with Ramona at SB. It seems as though Aviva wants to be mad at you. Let it roll off....
Sonja Morgan you are a star! Soooo classy. I love the way you handle difficult encounters. You are beautiful and smart. Didn't you act before? You should act! Love you.
I think you are great, but, I do think sometimes there is too much alcohol! Kind of clouds your thinking!
Why do you and Ramona think you make the rules for these little get aways? It wasn't a girls weekend - it was a celebration of Carole completing her book. Did you and Ramona even acknowledge that? You two seemed to be very busy pointing out what was lacking or are you going to blame that on editing. Just a hint, if the words don't come out of your mouth, they can't be twisted. I know you are going through a hard time financially but pull yourself together. Don't forget you are a mother to a beautiful child and you should have enough self -respect to check your behavior.
KRG so true, she didn't care about Carole or even think about Carole's situation. Sonja is as bad as Aviva with playing the victim and being "me, me, me". I think Sonja felt this was all for her... and Aviva felt this was all for her... and Ramona felt this was all done for her, too. LOL
Sonja, Nice blog, I'm glad to here you stick-up for LuAnn even though I would never have said that last year. She is starting to grow on me. Keep with Ramona and stay away from Aviva. She is too mean for being a new Housewife. She just came in already telling everyone off. I don't like her. I don't like her aura. I also feel she is a snob. I would never stand for another lady yelling at me like she does. I would be back in her face so fast they would have to quit filming. Just keep being you.
love you Sonja - you're genuine, a good friend and seem like a great person to be around. you should lighten up on Heather though, she was doing you a favor - whether you liked it or not, you should be appreciated and not critical.
You're my fav NYC housewife. You're so much fun, but you're also strong, independant and vulnerable. As Mrs. Saunders11 commented: I just adore you Sonja!
Sonja, why do you keep on with the photo shoot?? Do you still not understand what Heather put out for you and how much $$$ you would've had to fork over? It's over and done with, like you... I used to really enjoy seeing you... when you're away from that loud mouth Ramona it still is... so, please thank Heather (I've never heard a thank you from you... if so, sorry) and do NOT bring it up anymore.
I could go on but I won't...
randrewI dont agree, Heather never asked for money she offered and thats Heater's fault. Sonja was in the right. Does it make i right for Heather to try and put her 2 cents in ,NO. If she wanted to get paid she should have said so.
pocketfull... Sonja doesn't have any money! Heather is a Creative Director to many people and her times is worth a lot. Sonja doesn't know anything about design and Heather does! It was Heather's time, people, and her money and Sonja should have shown some gratitude.
randrew Don't you think someone would kill for the exposure that was given to those who worked on Sonja's project shown on the air? Worth much more than a the money they would have made spending their time elsewhere.
lynnwhitlock randrew Not really, since Sonja didn't use any of their ideas. Did we ever actually see the logo James suggested? Does anyone remember the name of the photographer, stylist or model? Were they even given?
lynnwhitlock randrew Do you know who Heather is? She MAKES or BREAKS stars. She's a creative director for P Diddy, J LO, Beyonce, etc. Her time is worth a heck of a lot more than Sonja's is. Sonja was rude to hold that team up. The place costs money to rent, each photographer costs money, the set up people, Heather, and the graphic designer!! That was probably a $20,000 job, maybe even $40,000 because of Sonja's lateness and diva attitude.
It was a gift and you don't argue with a gift. You accept it and thank the person profusely... especially where Sonja is flat broke and Heather has many much more important clients to deal with.
I'm constantly amazed at how people can condone Sonja's behavior by stating that she likes to have fun. Sonja must also remember that she is trying to establish a name and a brand for herself and her antics hinder that. I bet we will never see Heather and Carole act like. Even Vickie from OC doesn't act like Sonja does. Sure Ramona acts like her but then again how successful are her businesses? She claims that she is highly successful but we never see her at work like we've seen Heather, Bethenny, and Vickie. Those ladies know how to have a good time without tarnishing their images. Ramona and Sonja take it too far.
Sonja - I love, love, love the quirky, fun, and sophisticated Sonja. I don't like the mean Sonja that comes out when you hang around with Ramona. You really are a stunning woman but meanness does not suit you at all. I miss the Sonja who was full of sophistication and zaniness - that's the real you. The episode where the plumber comes over and you flirt with him was hysterical.
Sonja, I like you. I think its the Sagittarius thing, because I'm a Sag too. But, I don't like how you allow Ramona to treat you. I feel like the only reason you had Ramona to come and meet with you and Heather is because you were afraid of how Ramona would react of you doing business with Heather. We all can see that Ramona doesn't care for Heather. Stand up for yourself with Ramona sometimes, or people are going to loose respect for you.
Just want to give you a hug. Looks like you are still hurting big time from your divorce. In time it will get better. Love your genuine friendship with Ramona.
I've been re-watching Season 3 and you say of Kelly (on Scary Island), "This was a woman who lost the run of herself." Tuning in this season, I can't help but think we're seeing the same of you, and it bothers me to see - you've been my longtime favorite. I know you"ve been going through a lot, but you seem to have trouble picking yourself up...and lashing out at people who are trying to help you isn't good.
Kudos for sticking up for LuAnn. You WERE there to party but too much drink makes you sloppy. Learn to pace yourself girl. I love how generous you are with compliments when folks are generous to you.
zocola "I love how generous you are with compliments when folks are generous to you."
Well, except for that whole taking-advantage-of-Heather's-generosity deal... Heather has given her the most and is STILL taking heat from an entitled Sonja.
She IS a party girl. She gives energy at parties, then goes home... She has a sentimental side, sleeping with her 17 yr old dog, carrying him to potty. She's a good soul, this one. She turned down the advances of Avivas slimey, over-sexed George! which proves IMHO, she has boundries. Yes? You betcha! I can't complain about this girl, and I won't. She lives life. I don't see the problem.
Being at parties is F U N. She provides excellent entertainment (ie: Stage act in costume). She puts her face in a ba-day. << spelling filled with ice... LMAO!!
This group of posts are nit picky which = boring. Something Sonja is not. THANK GAWD .. :DDDD
MzM "Providing" would insinuate that Sonja is paying for these acts. She's not. Aviva and her husband Reid/Reed foot the bill for that trainwreck of a "performance" that Sonja called in for their anniversary party.
Just because an act is dressed in a costume doesn't make them talented or particularly good. So far, Sonja's taste has been dismal.
OCally Well said. SonJa and her problems pale by comparison to "real" people. She may want to remain and "Lady" in money only. However, her behavior shows her to be the opposite.
You are awesome. Sonja is a bunch of poor excuses and a woman who cannot stand on her own two feet.
Amen Ocally, this is what we call a real woman not these bunch of fools (except Heather and Carole) believing in their own hype. My mother was about around 30yrs old also when my dad died in a fire and I watched her put herself through nursing school so she can raise my sister and I without needing to ask for handouts or wait on a man to come and be her savior like Sonja and LuLu are doing.....Get a job and stop waiting on men to take care of you. And then will you be able to have respect for yourself...
Sonja, I love your spirit and the way you live life to the fullest. You are a joy to watch on the show. Please don't change for anybody. Keep doing you!
at dinner you mentioned that your ex had the chance an he blew it.
it seems you've had a LOT of chances and blew them all (no pun intended!)
sonja i love you, you are such fun to watch. i would like to see more of the business side of you.
I love Sonja! She is the reason I watch the show. So fun and so in the moment! I believe she keeps the show together. I would watch her paint a barn. She seems intensely passionate and let's all face it, she would never walk into a glass door. Team Sonja!
I think you should have as much fun as you can. You are a hard working woman and you constantly are trying to support your family with all of your projects. I think you are an incredible and inspirational woman and you make the show so much fun to watch. Let loose on vacation and have the time of your life!
This is so infuriating. Carole had said she was going there to meet up with her boyfriend when she invited you all to go and now you are disrespecting her by acting offended that she let him come to the house.
