Sonja's the Hostess With the Mostess

Sonja explains why Kristen could have used her tips, what she thought of the bossy fight, and what's going on with LuAnn.

I shouldn't say Kristen or Carole are bad hostesses. They just dont have the experience I have. It's been my business for decades now. I throw parties every week. I have dinner every night at my home, for no less then five people on average, and sometimes I have last minute dinners for tens of people impromptu. I'm asked many times to organize a Sonja In the City event in a matter of days. When someone else's plan falls through they can always count on me.

I also have huge team of people I have cultivated over years to do public relations, sponsor events, perform, help with the invites, RSVPs, decor, and anything you can think of when throwing throwing an event. For example the Sonja In The City charity event in East Hamption became tricky because I needed places for 90 actors, Broadway performers, dancers, and singers to stay. That was not easy, but my contacts over the years came through. Hotels, homes, yachts, you name it, they stayed there.

I am used to providing service, press, celebs, and a good mix of people and decor to create atmosphere to make sure the party goes into the wee hours and without incident! It's particularly important if you are on a private island or yacht. You don't want to be trapped with an unfortunate situation, like "Scary Island" (which I tried to circumvent) and have to fly someone out. I don't think Carole or Kristen have to be worried about creating that kind of atmosphere! I am critical of hosting, since it is my business, but I'm not that critical!!!

After geocaching I was happy Ramona took the initiative to have refreshments. I kept saying "Who has the refreshments?" They should have had a golf cart with a cooler. You didn't hear me saying that. I was dying in the dry woods looking for a box with dice in it as our prize. One piece of the dice! How do you say one dice? Die? Yes DIE! That what I wanted to do. It was hot, dry and dusty and no refreshements. Then you win one piece of the dice. Die.

I didn't want to wake up for glamping, but there is no fighting Ramona. You roll with the punches. She would not go without me for sure! I'm like her lucky penny. Boney Sony. She even wore my purple marchesite necklace from Mazzani Jewels inside out and upside down. It's supposed to go on doubled. She doesn't care as long as she has something of mine on. It makes her feel close to me.

When LuAnn says I'm like family it's because she knows we have that trust level. So why is she questioning it? I know our relationship will always be there because she is obviously going through something. People who know us both and especially my friends of decades know I wouldn't throw her under the bus. So her perception is just that her perception. Obviously I'm not jealous of her. I always want her happy. Hell! Who wants a friend nagging on them? We have only been friends for five or six years and mostly socially -- so I don't need to see this side of Lu!

The fight with Heather and Kristen wasn't surprising at all since Kristen has been outwardly judgmental and critical of everyone. For a new friend, I find it strange, but I see so many come and go. It's really not my concern. I thought she was fine as a social friend. It's when she called me delusional with her husband while not knowing my businesses nor my business plan that I decided I better not waste my valuable energy helping her. That's not the kind of friends that I have built my life with. I do NOT think what I have built is delusional. It's VERY REAL and I spend LONG, real days managing my businesses that I have worked on building since 14 years old. I have created tens of millions of dollars. I do not ask my girlfriends what they do to manage their finances and businesses. I support their dreams. I listen. I have built what I have from love and light, not from fear. I will continue to build while others try to poo poo my vision. There will always be those who are naysayers. But I have achieved much through visualization and will continue to dream and manifest.

I know people have mixed feelings about rodeos but I grew up barreling and love it. I am one with the horses, as I said I am a Sagittarius. However as a philanthropist who supports animals I do feel bad for the cattle being tied up. I asked about the belts they put on the horses to make them buck and was told it doesn't hurt them that it just makes them uncomfortable. The jury is out on that one.

I did get the hot dog. In fact, I'm in France now and it's dinner time so I could really go for a hot dog! I'm over here to get my things from my house that I sold. I texted Heather to say I was coming here to work on securing financing out of Switzerland on my French home and open it and prepare it for sale. That's why I missed her Anniversary party. I also thought the vibe would be bad if Ramona and I went.

Kristen's statement about Heather being bossy in her marriage crossed the line. I think when she couldn't get a rise out of Heather she resorted to that to get the attention she has been vying for all along. Ramona trying to make peace took the cake but of course she insults poor Jonathan in the process. I find him adorable and extremely attractive. Don't you?

I always make fun of Ramona's clothes, hats, bags shoes, etc., because she gives me comedic licence. Making fun of Ramona's big underwear was just a way to be cute with the girls (since no men were around) and to show my intimacy with her. I used to be able to call Lu "Pumpkin Head" and myself "Pin Head" like we did in London last year, but these days she is very sensitive. There is obviously more going on then she is telling me. When Ramona comes back with the fact I expose my "t--- and ass" I have to laugh. She's always been a prude compared to my half-naked modeling day ways. That's what makes our relationship dynamic and fun! We are Laverne and Shirley in that way. If she is down or I am out of sorts and we have a spat, it's just a sisterly tiff or an annoyance -- not a do or die. We are like the Golden Girls now. LOL.

I gave Kristen positive feedback during the happy hour because, whether you tick me off of not, I'm going to complement you when I think you are doing something great. I want people to do well regardless of my disagreements with them. I don't wish people badly. On the contrary, I want everyone to evolve and make this planet better for everyone, especially the children who are our future and innocent.

When Ramona comes back with "you expose your tits and ass " I have to laugh because she is such a prude in comparison to my half naked modeling days way of life. We are like Laverne and Shirley. That's the dynamic of our relationship that makes us fun! We are the Golden Girls now actually. LOL

I gave Kristen a complement during happy hour because no matter what our disagreements if I think someone is doing something great I am going to tell them. I never wish someone badly. I want everyone on this planet to evolve (like Aviva for example), especially our children who are innocent and our future. Missoula had very nice people. Paws Up is first class!

Kristen: Sonja Is Good at Doing the Unexpected

Kristen explains why Sonja's magazine party was a turning point for their relationship.

Ramona and Dorinda meeting for dinner:

It's nice to see the history and friendship Ramona and Dorinda have and the fact that Dorinda can be that reliable friend for Ramona while she is going through this transition in her life. I think with all that Dorinda has been through in her life, she is extremely understanding and can provide good advice and support. It's refreshing to hear Ramona speak so openly about her situation and so unlike Ramona to be so vulnerable, but I think it is a healthy way for her to process through it all. Typical man fashion is once the woman is done and ready to move on the guy wants you back, and “word on the street” is Mario wants her back! WOW...

I was so impressed with Carole holding court at her fav little restaurant LEFT Bank and having a board meeting for her building. It made me think of her being this big corporate executive and working her angles to get the support she needed...GO Carole…however, if you ever lived in NYC, you hear all the stories of these co-op building and condos and how much power and control the board of the building has on controlling your building and essentially your living conditions in the building to the point they can control who you even sell your apartment to and who they let live in the building. I am really loving how serious and passionate Carole is about getting on the board, and she is such a good people person and reasonable I think she would do a fabulous job. BTW, who wouldn’t want a PRINCESS on the board? #DOORGATE

Bethenny’s therapy session was really hard to watch, because it makes you realize what type of childhood she had and how much drama and probably emotional trauma she was exposed to at such an early age. I can only imagine how hard it was for Bethenny to hear the therapist trying to rehash those days and memories and how difficult it must be for her to have to talk about it. I really felt bad for her and thinking about what she went through, and it all makes sense to me on why she is probably so guarded and why it's hard for her to trust people. I really wanted to just give her a hug and tell her how much I respect her for having to go through all that.

Sonja's big event and cover party:

One thing for sure about Sonja Morgan is she knows how to bring it, and she looked so stunning and beautiful on the cover! WOW! I am still trying to figure out the connection with Sonja Morgan, born and raised in the US, and a connection to a Latin magazine/lifestyle, but what the heck, it is Sonja Morgan, and she is the ultimate chameleon! It was funny, because I was speaking to the editor of the magazine, and the editor made the point that Sonja was wearing the dress of a Latin designer, so maybe that was the necessary criteria to be on the cover? Either way, good for Sonja Morgan. She is always good at doing the unexpected.

This party was a turning point for me with Sonja. Sonja was in her element hosting this fabulous party, and she had all her friends and TEAM there to support her, and even better, she was not drinking and was totally on point. I actually also met the same team Bethenny met who were running her Fashion Collection, and they actually had a lot of the answers to Bethenny’s and Heather's questions about her line and the retailers they were going out to. They also pointed out in the magazine she was wearing her collection, so hey, maybe there is a real Sonja Morgan Collection about to hit the retail doors, and we can go and buy it. I forgot to ask if the Saudi Prince or the Nigerian soccer team were the financial backers, but in all seriousness, I am happy to see her making progress, and maybe she has been working really hard behind the scenes and going to WOW us all. At the end of the day, she is a positive and talented person, and I only want the best for her, and I will support her.

Carole’s election results were in and the drum roll, please...SHE WON! I really felt she would win, but you never know with all the different personalities and politics involved, but I am so happy she won, and I think she was relived as well. How about those pigs in a blanket! I am a CT girl, and I always loved pigs in a blanket, but the smell of them taking over her whole apartment was probably not for everyone. I was dying when she said they had been in the freezer for three years. I don’t think pigs in a blanket are like fine wines and get better with time, but oh well. I ate them and loved them, and I am still here to write about it!
For a long time I wanted to speak with Sonja and let her know I meant no disrespect when I called her delusional, and I really do like and support her. I feel like after her Latin event magazine and her clothing line actually coming, this is going to be Sonja’s moment and the truth is I think everyone will be there to cheer her along to success!
