I said from the beginning if someone watches the show feels better for just 30 seconds, having a laugh at me doing some ludicrous things I do whether it be superficial at the moment or deeply painful yet relative to me then fine, I'm happy for them. Even better if the viewer relates as I find so many do when the email me through my website. It means the works to me.
Aviva admits having double standards when she's angry with someone, but when she's not judging she lets everything roll so her insults were just out of anger. Once I get past the initial pain I felt from the name calling, I start to see once again how hard A-diva is on herself and therefore on others. I wish that she could understand people meet her to love her and not be paranoid (for lack of a better word). It's difficult to build a relationship with someone who is always on guard. You have to trust and love yourself to be able to love others. It's hard.
We are all children of a higher being, whether you believe in god or not and that's why I go away every two or three months away from "Sonja's Universe" to get centered. I juice-fast, cleanse, practice my yoga, meditate, and connect with nature. I do this to remember how small I really am in the REAL universe. To remember what's really important in this short time I'm here on earth. This is another reason I enjoy my charities because they remind me how fortunate I am. I have family and friends that love me unconditionally, my health and I can support myself financially since I'm 14 years old. So much to be grateful for indeed.
This has worked for me since I was a young model and getting lots of attention to my jet setting days to when I made a name for myself in NY in business as "The Straw That Stirs the Drink" to my prominent marriage after dating high profile boyfriends. I learned fast not to "drink the Kool Aid." Many people who were interested in me when I was 20 to 26 years living with the Italian Count weren't interested and sucking up when I broke off the engagement. I knew I had to stand on my own two feet. I never could have had my daughter otherwise. The mom is ultimately responsible. I am not going to depend on a man to take care of me. Like I said I was a full partner in my marriage. I married him
because I respected him and loved him.
Hey Sonja...what can I say...you are beautiful! You remind me of Barbra Streisand...who is another beauty. I love how you put Aviva out of your life. She is vicious & toxic. Stay strong and all the best with this hideous divorce...what is your ex thinking?
"I just live in the moment"............if you do, it is not a moment in present time but rather a long ago moment. Just more proof that you're deluded. It's kind of sad really and I do hope that you've taken Aviva's words to heart and will get some help with your alcoholism and other problems.
To bad you couldn't buy yourself some class with all the money you saved having Heather work for you. Don't you just twinge with regret when you watch yourself on TV?
Other than your fabulous figure, you are everything I don't want to be at 49 years old. You brag in your blog about how much you have done and who you know blah blah blah but your behaviour seems desperate. It made me cringe watching you beg for attention from the waiter in St Barts. Why do you talk and behave like Ramona when you are around her? It makes you look insecure. You were so rude and ungrateful to Heather regarding the toaster oven debacle. At this time you indicated low intelligence and no professionalism. You did a crap and careless job of organising an event for Aviva. You also showed immaturity and obnoxious behaviour by comparing your difficult situation with your dog to Aviva's charity. Yes it is deeply sad when a pet is old, sick and dying. The suffering and endless challenges children with prosthetics face daily is incomparable. Shame on you. Your definition of a girls only trip away is tragic. Your definition seems to be about acting promiscuously and sharing your body with a random young pirate the night after your friend? Yuck. This is total Jersey Shore behaviour, not Real Housewives class. You might have a taste for luxury Sonja, but luxury certainly does not have a taste for you. Trashy however, does.
Love Sonja alot,and I like the fact that u didn't let that arrogant Aviva take u for a bad ride with her words pls don't be friends with her bcos she's jealous of u,u will c the light of financial breakthru again.
You are absolute fun and a joy to watch. Your sad moments are few, but clearly heartfelt and I sympathise. So although you see yourself as losing your sense of humour you more than made up for making your viewers sad along with you. Please don't ditch Ramona - your friendship is part of your fun personality.
you'd be so much better off without Ramona she's trashy and brings the show down, I like you but you often get tangled in Ramona's messes- ditch her
You have more class then Ramona please don't be to close to her evil Why you put Ramona in your business leave out she didn't let the man talk bla bla bla bla like a parrot. But I like you style love you.
love ya Sonja, you keep on rocking with Ramona and don't worry about what other people think...life is for the living...Aviva is a pain who is not only judge mental, but truly up her own (ah) she still doesn't realize the sun don't shine from there!!! Rock on girls !!!
Stop being a Ramona fan club it does not do you any favours, she is a loose cannon and will turn on you eventually.Be the person underneath the pretence Sonja people will like you more.
You should pick your friends more carefully, Ramona is not a good friend. She will be fine as long as you agree with everything she says but as you have seen this season if you dare to have your own opinion or do something she doesn't like she will turn on you. You need to stop flirting with any man that you have dealings with it doesn't make you look very clever.
On the first season with you I really didn't much care for you, I thought you were too 'out there' but, your heart has been exposed and your soft underbelly, and I am not writing about your dips in the pool. You appear to be a good person, going through some challenging time. It was hard to see your tears when the meeting with your ex didn't turn out the way you anticipated. It was clear, your feelings ran deep...Sorry...
Tell Ramona that she really looks 'odd' at times demanding attention. If she was comfortable in her own skin she would not keep saying "how happy she is''
Why the HELL are you selling toasters anyway? Do you look like Julia Child.
Not even Julia sold stuff like that.
You should sell classy stuff like Sonja fragrance, lotions and lingerie.
I'll but it.
Sonja, because of your closeness to Ramona, I tried not to like you. But I cannot help myself. Girl, you are a blast! I get a kick from your expressions while the rest are going nuts. Did you realize that you kind of smile through the craziness sometimes?
Yeah! This outrageous firecracking Ramona-Sonja duo really cracks me up.
Especially when they drive Aviva and Heather crazy. (They remind me of LUCY & ETHEL)
Aviva should get off the show - she just can't handle the stress.
You have a kind heart, lots of charisma, and you are beautiful on the inside and out. I wish you every success and happiness..... You really are a very humorous, light and easy, Bravo housewife. I wouldn't enjoy the show as much, without you on it!
How could I forget to mention this????
Sonja-- the FUNNIEST bit on the Reunion show was when you compared the "girls" trip (with someone bringing their husband along) to a "guys" trip in Vegas!, one dude's wife is joining and the other fellas are sitting around in their boxer shorts, puffing on fat cigars + contemplating having a few professional ladies stopping by...!
HILARIOUS! I really needed a good laugh the first time i viewed it and you delivered ---- BRILLIANT!!! You have a knack for comedic storytelling, my dear!
love you...i could see how Heather wasn't really hearing you in the small snipets of time we did get to see.
you are bigger than this issue that is for sure. you will move on and forward.
I will toss up a prayer for you my dear. Love your blog. Love NYHW!!
I watch NJ too but I may have to stop it is just tooo dark for me.
If you ever get the chance be-friend Teresa.
ahh Miss Sonja,
So wonderful to see on the "Lost Footage" episode, that you've come to terms with your behaviour towards Heather when she was helping you with the branding of your Sonja "Home" and "In the City" enterprises.
Wish those bits of you + Heather speaking about the "best + worst" moments of the season had been included in Part 2 of the Reunion. ...though better late than never!
all good wishes,
see you next season ---- with a fully loaded toaster oven on the shelves already :O)
i like you sonja. i feel sorry for you and i hope everything works out for you. i think you are a good person.
Sonja- when you and Luann removed the paintings from your dining room, it was a very touching moment. I understand that pain and I am so glad Luann was there to be with you. Looking forward to seeing you, Ramona, and Luann next season.
SONJA MORGAN YOU ARE THE REASON I GOT BETTER FASTER FROM AN ALLDAY SURGERY, WHILST RECOVERING, I WATCHED OVER AND OVER THE EPISODE OF WHEN HEATHER RAN INTO THE POOL AND YOU AND RAMONA JUMPED IN HAVING A LAUGH IN THE POOL, ITS THE FUNNIEST EPISODE I EVER SAW IN THE REAL HOUSEWIVES SEASONS, OF ALL THE HOUSEWIVES BOTH YOU AND RAMONA ARE SO WORTH WATCHING, IF LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE, I NEVER TOOK ONE PAIN KILLER, I WATCHED THAT EPISODE OVER AND OVER AND DEFINATELY WOULD SAY THIS EPISODE WAS THE BEST MEDICINE FOR ME!
After watching the lost footage and seeing some chumpy guy name drop "The Donald" in order to partner up with you for your non entity makes me wonder how in the world you functioned for 20 years without the input of Ramona (who you seem to require for your every move)? How independent have you been in your life without the continued support of new friends? I have a feeling you've needed many shoulders over the years. You seem sort of dense to the fact that you have little imagination, talent nor work ethic. Get a grip. Get a job.
Starting a business with little business acumen and relying on others is really not much of a strategy for success.
melindaannie Lynda58 To melindaannie, your ramble is far too long and off point to read fully. I appreciate your strident affection for SonJa. I liked her in her first season. She seemed light as helium and smart. Since that time, she has bordered dependent on RaMOANa for everything. It's ridiculous to put all one's eggs in one basket. Yes, I do find Sonja's character has been shown to be a dim bulb (she forgot to wear underwear, for goodness sake!). due to her lack of self awareness, independence and gratitude for other friends' time (i.e. Heather), I've lost a great deal of respect for her.
@Lynda58 ......Short version,,, I don't like to stand by and watch ugly names thrown at Sonja that 1; aren't' true, and 2; whether they realize it or not going into being on RHONY, it takes courage, we are all prone to cringe worthy moments!
melindaannie Lynda58 to Melindaannie - You must have confused my comments for somebody else's. I didn't call her ugly names. I gave my assessment of her behavior. btw: I also stated that I originally liked her. Frankly, she seems to have morphed into something else altogether.
blackberry I think SonJa relies on others to lift her up. She probably was impressed with the tubby guy because he dropped the "Donald" bomb. Did RaSonJa even bother to check his credentials?
There is a difference between the guy you date to see if you want to have a serious relationship with and possibly marriage and then there is the guy you know you will never be serious about and just want to have fun with (especially on vacation). As for the investor friend, she also brought Ramona into it and he also seemed to be listening.
@withdiamonds ........So, why do you feel the need to go onto someone's blog and rip into them. Do you know for a fact, the heart of one that you speak of, I think not!!!
Oh my God, you are so hostile !! Obviously you havent lived life much. You should be so lucky to have a loyal friend like Sonja who loves life and is true to her friends
Just so sad! You are entitled and delusional, as so many people have stated on your blog. I hope you can take some of these comments to help yourself grow as a person. You are definitely entertaining to watch, but wouldn't you like to be more than just entertainment? People sometimes are NOT laughing WITH you, if you know what I mean (don't be a joke) You are holding on to your past too much girl! Just let it go and start learning from your fabulous friends, instead of acting as if you are on the same level (business wise I mean) because you are not a business woman (at least not a very good one) and you could learn a lot if you would listen more, and stop pretending to be something you are not. Heather hit it on the head when she said "you wouldn't know hard work if it bit you in the a" Also, Heather wrote in her blog the MANY things she has accomplished since the show, and you well, still no Sonja toaster ovens on the shelf. That is because you do not know what you are doing sweetheart! Good luck, and I hope you can tone it down a bit before you do hit the end of road..
Sonja, you beautiful girl ! Hang in there. I understand you completely. You work hard and you play hard. If people dont understand that then too bad. You dont have to answer to anyone. You have strength and confidence which are genuine and are rocked by people who proclaim to be your friend but desert you when you need them. Except Ramona. Loyalty is what you look for in relationships and you are devastated when betrayed. Its a lonely road we travel my friend but I have confidence you will come thru it triumphant. You are a survivor and will be fine. And dont give up on JA Morgan yet. And tell Aviva to kiss you _ss. See younext season.
I'll just copy and paste what I said to Lu...
I love love loved you all last night.
I LMBO at you Lu when she was trying to get a walk in the park with Ramona and Sonja.
"oh well, she tried"! :D
You all are such a breath of fresh air compared to NJHW's it's not even real. Way cool lost footage
Just watched the "lost footage" and have to say, what is your problem with Aviva's ex husband? You cut her off every time she tries to talk about him, and since she's the one that married him don't you think she might know him a little better (and certainly differently) than you do? Try listening instead of talking over her and maybe you'll learn something.
J901 Sonja was defending, Harry, a long time friend and knows that Aviva does not have a high opinion. You are correct assuming they would know him differently. The judgmental creature that is Aviva would not be my choice of defense.
Stop yapping!! Start writing a book. You have alot to say girl. Save juicy details for the book.
You do you Sonja, you pay your own bills not the women you are on the show with at this time. Life is full of surprises and you love life it is obvious but in a positive way. I hope all works out well for you financially it's tough out there for women at times but you are an overcomer - hang in there! And you know what rolling with life is not a bad thing it just means you are comfortable with who you are and you are trying to enjoy life. It's short - it can end quickly.
What did you think of Eric Riperts segment on cooking with a toaster oven this morning on the Today Show..? You may want to get your oven in the box and on the shelf because if you don't Mr Ripert is going to take over your market.
Sonja, I get you. You try to be the peacemaker, the go-between, the one who takes the high road. This has caused some people to think you're a ditz. You're not. I appreciate the humor and am glad you are on the show. Good luck!
Sonja if you ever get the toaster oven on the market I will be the first one in line. I've always wanted one, but at this point I am willing to hold out for yours to hit the market. Hopefully it will be soon!
melindaannie Heather did "opt out" at their second or third meeting, and it was Sonja who called her a quitter. Look at the old video. The real problem here is that Sonja actually wanted every favor under the sun from Heather: develop a logo and font, do photography and biography of Sonja for the box, provide tons of extra photographs for Sonja to use on her website and other projects, take care of the brand stamp and packaging of a dozen other products --oven mitts, etc. She never ceased wanting more. For free.
melindaannie real problem was created by Sonja when she brought Ramona to the meeting with Heather, HUGE MISTAKE! that was the end with Heather, I totally understand why.
WHEW! 5 pages in your blog and most of them were about you explaining why you are adequate today based on your life 20 years ago. The past is the past and one can’t keep living off of it my darling. It’s what we do today with what we have that matters. It would be nice to see you turn your talk into action, otherwise you just look flighty.
@bravoista I've always felt like she was living in the past, and this blog really confirms it for me. Have you ever noticed that every time the toaster oven gets brought up she'll start talking about her production company? It's just sad. It seems as though she refuses to accept the present day. No matter how successful she was in the past the times are changing and she needs to let it go and get it moving forward! I for one am sick of hearing about it. It's one of the main things I can not stand about her.
Up til this week, I thought Heather was 100% on target stating that the one word best describing you is "entitled". After watching you on the reunion and reading your blog I realize another word is even more on the mark: "DELUSIONAL"!
@Blanca Hahahahahaha! Delusional kept popping into my head while I was reading this as well. I was also a bit confused by it. She spent 6 pages to tell us about who she was 20 years ago? None of that matters now! How about trying to focus on who she is now!
