Heather: I'm Obviously a Glutton for Punishment
Heather talks about how she's tried to help Sonja, and why she's letting Bethenny take the reins.
Back to Business
I’ve always tried to be on Team Sonja. And to contradict her recent blog, I don’t ever, have never, and will never stand on a soap box unless I am advocating for a charity or helping others. I also don't preach, and I don't judge another. Strong opinions, however, mostly in areas I am well versed, I do often have. These are simple facts about me.
I have been down Sonja "Sexy J" Morgan's rabbit hole before: spending valuable time, energy, and favors on her pursuits, unfortunately, to no end. I was not at the lunch Sonja referred to saying the girls haven’t been supporting her, nor was I picking on her at this event. I was simply not in the know that Sonja had sourced a group to back a fashion endeavor, hiring freelance consultants and a designer to pull a collection together. And I was surprised to learn from Bethenny that she had. I was interested to learn more about it and lend whatever I potentially could. But, 'The Countess' boomed in and, as the case often goes, things flew off the rails. And it's frustrating.
Meanwhile, Bethenny may "suck at relationships," but she did a great job delivering succinct and solid advice to team Sonja about timelines, vendor partners, and the simple laws of supply and demand. She can also handle a bitchy fashion chick like a champ!
But back to Sonja...please, dear, if you are going to call me out on anything, please let it be that I'm an obvious glutton for punishment! Why do I even care?! Having worked in the industry for over 25 years and launching my own successful brand Yummie by Heather Thomson, I’ve been around the block enough at this point to offer valuable knowledge to someone just starting out. And I've always been eager to help Sonja, so I would have thought she would have wanted to hear my thoughts on her new venture?
I’ve genuinely wanted to see Sonja focus and succeed.
I’ve genuinely wanted to see Sonja focus and succeed. As a group, we’ve all been waiting for so long to see something actually come to fruition from Sonja Morgan’s many, many pursuits. Personally, while I'm eager to see more in this new venture, I’m still rooting for her Nigerian Football team--that one remains an all-time favorite, but I’ve yet to be invited to a game or to this showroom. I would take the call, though.
What's real, or not so real, is that spring has sprung, and so have Ramona's boobers! And a visit to any retailer, or even a website--where one’s spring 2015 collection would potentially live in all of its glory--may lead one to think not much has changed, but it’s a journey nonetheless.
