Sonja: Aviva Is in a Fragile State

Sonja is more worried about Aviva's ghostly complexion than her ghostwriter, talks teeth, and swears Ramonja is over the Aviva drama.

Are you a well wisher? Or a doom wisher? Or I guess that's another word for sociopath! I told you guys there's one in every 15 people. Scary! No wonder Aviva is asking everyone if they are a well wisher. Beats the alternative -- not that a sociopath is going to admit to wishing harm on others.

We see more of Reid as he comes to Aviva's defense and says he was there with three women that said Carole didn't write the book. So this leads us to believe Aviva is not making it up. However, I still say neither girl should be asking who wrote what, since this whole thing is out of control! Everyone really seems to have ganged up on Aviva who is, in my eyes, in a fragile mental and health state. Is it just me or it shows as well?!?  She's getting thinner, paler, and forget a ghostwriter -- she looks like Casper the ghost herself!

Really, what came out in front of Lu's kitchen when I blurted my say to Carole is that Carole is holding a grudge against Aviva for her behavior towards Ramona and I last season in St Barth's. But the punishment for that crime is delayed! #Ramonja is already moving on. But unfortunately Carole and Heather were the last to figure out what was going on back then -- and now they want to vent. You can't say Ramona and I didn't lash out in retaliation towards Aviva back then. We were knee deep in that cow dunk and shoveled it right out the barn door. Looks like Heather wants to do the same with some s--- kicking heels.

I can't believe how lucky I am to have the beautiful house in Southampton from Nestseekers International Realty. I sent them referrals in the past and never asked for a commission, and they were there to support me and make sure my daughter and I were very comfortable on world the famous Deerfield Road in a beautiful 7,000 square-foot home! HOO HA! We sure enjoyed it and I loved sharing it with my friends, the interns and those who support me.

Like I said #TeamSonja is no less than 35 people! Aviva said it takes a village! I know! I know! You can't hear that phrase anymore.

My dear friend, Executive Chef Seth Levine of Georgica Restaurant and Lounge is also #TeamSonja for a long time now and was so kind to put on the spread of lobster, shrimp, waffles stuffed with ricotta, and so much more! I have been there for him in the past to help him promote his new restaurants and ventures, and he was there for me in true Top Chef form. It was so delicious! With a little help from my wonderful gracious friends, I get by. All will work out in the end.

How about Reid's mothers advice -- Fixodent vs. Polident? Hilarious stuff. Good thing the body is hanging in there cuz the teeth aren't! I had an appointment for after the weekend with Dr. Charles Lennon and he patched me up -- but in the end, Dr. Marc Lazare turned me on to Dr. Nicholas Toscano. Dr. Toscano treats my psychic Roberta because she needs a mouth full of implants and now I need one done! That's a permanent solution that takes eight months. Even for one tooth. But it's a short two visits. I have been worried about Roberta because the implants are very costly and the ensuing infection can really harm a person.

At Dr. Sadick's office, Aviva and I were really having a heart-to-heart with the facial masks on. But how can anyone watching us take us seriously? We look like. . .ghosts! Whoops. There is that word again. Carole's going to kill me. I really hope the sting goes out of this argument soon. I wanted to "return to sender" this Aviva last year. It took me awhile to forgive.

Aviva puts on a brave face, but she had a hard time getting up those stairs for arts and crafts. I noticed. There are a lot of things she can't do with a prosthetic that she doesn't admit or talk about. This is the first time we really see Reid's intimate side with Aviva. I know I joshed him into wearing a wedding ring, but this is more serious stuff. He HAS stood by Aviva. It takes a lot of strength to go back to the scene of the accident -- and it's important that she does.

Aviva said it was her friend's idea to play with the machine, but it' nobodys fault. I would definitely blame someone for some long time, but they were kids. It would have been easy to panic and not turn the machine off, even if you were an adult. When my daughter fell in the pool at 18 months old, everyone around her panicked and I had to calmly walk into the pool and take her out, making sure not to harm myself so I could save her. And one of those people was a trained professional caregiver! The other was my ex-husband. I know firsthand that people panic. I think I don't panic because I always imagine the worst happening in every situation, so when it does I know exactly what I'm going to do! You know what they say: "Imagine the best but be prepared for the worst."

Aviva has a healthy attitude in this situation. This accident makes Aviva who she is to other people, and gives her the experience to share and help others through their pain. I see Aviva's face after going back to the scene of the accident and it is so different. The relief is evident.

When it comes to blemishes you have you use a needle. Never squeeze! I have to admit when it comes to the interns, it's a little bit TMI. But they are at that age where they really need to know these things! I don't want them to make the same mistakes I made. It really pains me to see a good-looking kid with a pockmarked face from squeezing. I have a 13-year-old daughter myself, and I'm telling her this very same thing. Using a sterile needle rather than squeezing (because you can't wait for it to dry up on its own or go to a dermatologist) means the difference between a clear face at 50 years old when your skin starts to thin and a mess.

Carole looked amazing as the Queen Mermaid. I love the Ya-Ya sisterhood that Carole put together for us on the beach and the wonderful affirmations she wrote for us after a long day reigning as Queen. Aviva may says she's not a well wisher -- but I can tell you she's always been very supportive of me and has inspired me to be brave, creative, and to forge ahead with my art.

Carole on Elitists and Bitches

Carole says what she really thinks of Aviva and all of her talk about her book and things being "ghetto."

Dear Fans,

Let me start with something I stole it from Twitter this week. "The most dangerous liars are those who think they are telling the truth."

I'll say it again. The blonde at the end of the right couch, the one who's prone to lobbing limbs and insults, is an Insulting. Bitch. Some of you didn't believe me. Maybe some of you still don't. But after watching the reunion shows I imagine it's harder and harder to cheer for the anti-hero. Just when you think she can't get any faker she does.

The story according to Aviva makes me laugh: We were arguing, she insulted me, I called her a psychopath and that prompted her to affectionately compliment me on my age. Sure. Her disdain for the intelligence of the audience is palpable. It was too stupid for me to even reply. But as I was watching the reunion, and particularly Aviva and the way she treats people, I was reminded of something my Grandma Millie used to say. (I love everything Grandma Millie used to say.) "At 25, you have the face you're born with. At 45 you have the face you deserve."

I'd rather be 50 and me than be 45 and Aviva, any day of the week. She aged worse this season than a president in his first term. Holy short dress, I don't mind at all how I look. Overbite and all. I'll take it.

When I first met Aviva she was lovely. Really lovely. I meant what I said on the couch, I wish we had seen more of that. Her easy laugh and funny neurotic ways. Instead all we saw was a mean and angry woman. All because I asked her if she hired a writer -- a writer she did hire. It makes no sense. Three years ago she told me she'd read my memoir, What Remains. This was a book published in 2006 about my childhood, my family, my career and marriage, and then the death of my husband, Anthony Radziwill. A man I loved more than anyone I had loved before or have loved since. She gushed over my book. She quoted from it. We hugged. She seemed so sincere. Flash forward and she now believes it was written by a ghostwriter. She even knew his name, and it wasn't Truman Capote. It was Bill Whitworth, she told me. She repeated this over and over to anyone who would listen. And it doesn't matter how many times she repeats it -- it will never make it true.

When they stopped listening she started saying in the press and on social media that not only was my book written by someone else but that it was not my place to have written a book about my life, and my marriage. And, as if I didn't remember, she reminded me that I'd written about people who had died. Um, yeah. I know. It was my husband and my family and my closest friend who died. Just. . .wow. But I wasn't important enough to tell my story because my husband's family was famous, or historic or whatever she said. Because they had money and privilege and yachts. Really. Who do I think I am?

I’ll tell you. I’m a girl from upstate New York who grew up in a loving, if sometimes kooky, Italian working class family. I worked for everything I earned, just like my parents did and their parents before them. I have a proud family history of hard work and small but precious rewards that followed. My family won't be in any history books. I didn't grow up privileged. We didn't spend summers in Europe or Christmas in Palm Beach. A day spent at the town pool or playing in the woods behind our house was great. Much like Heather, I was taught strong values and decent manners. I learned to live with integrity and honesty. I'm proud of my upbringing and the woman I became, as was my husband. As is his family to this very day. I've known people who lived in what Aviva would consider the "ghetto" who have more class and decency than she shows.

All this talk about class and ghetto -- you'd think we were living in communist Russia. Here is the thing. This is America. In our country it doesn't matter a lick where you are from, it only matters where you're going. So don’t let anyone tell you that you aren't good enough because you didn’t grow up on Park Avenue or in a family that had some history, or because you enjoy saying mother-f---er now and then. I’ve met people from all walks of life. I spent time in refugee camps in Southeast Asia, and in the projects of Chicago. I've been to State dinners with Presidents. I met the Queen of England on a beach in Anguilla. No one is any more valuable or important than you are. No one is more important than your family and your friends.

Let the elitists go slow into the night.

In spite of the BookGate dust up I had a great time this season. I made wonderful new friends in LuAnn and Kristen and my friendship with Heather is more special and important to me than I could have ever imagined just three years ago. Friends have each other's backs. I love her, madly. And while we didn't always act appropriately, we had a lot of laughs. I hope you did too.

Thank you all for your supportive and funny and brilliant tweets. And while we didn't all agree on everything all of the time I enjoyed your participation in the show. Even the mean tweets about my skinny neck and my overbite were amusing. Like I said, I've stolen some tweets already. You may see others as dialogue in my next book, and yes, you can all say you were my ghostwriters.

As always,

With love, Writer Girl xoxo
