It's our job as parents to embarrass our kids. I did my part by becoming one of The Real Housewives of New York City. My dad has done his part by . . . well, pretty much everything he does. He does that job much too well in this episode. His behavior is mortifying to his daughter. And while I don't understand what he's saying most of the time, I do recognize it as excruciatingly vulgar. I'm not the slightest bit amused, and I feel bad for everyone that has to suffer in his presence. I wonder who his ghostwriter is . . . ?
Sonja's a dear. Even those who think she goes too far occasionally (I don't), know she does it with humor, energy, and a great sense of fun. I was disappointed in my fellow Housewives for being catty and disapproving instead of being warm and caring when Sonia had a couple too many (OK, a few too many. Maybe many too many?) in Saratoga. Come on, girls, if you can't have Sonja's back, what good are you?
