Luann de Lesseps: My Heart Went Out to Sonja

"The friends who stay with you when you are down are the ones you want around during the good times."

By Luann de Lesseps
It's a Major, Major Fashion Moment

Fashion is in the eye of the wearer, and The Real Housewives of New York City always bring it style-wise. Bethenny’s running commentary on the outfits we wore to Ramona’s #Hamptons party for Carole was too funny! What was Carole thinking when she chose that tattoo getup (what was that?)? And Ramona’s ensemble...let’s call it “edgy.” I thought my pink feathered top was #thebomb, but someone else thought it was a dud (#fashionfauxpas #braids). Why not?

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New York City on Bravo Sundays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app

Unseen Moment: Dorinda Compares Sonja to a Cult

On a more serious note, why is everyone ganging up on Sonja? She’s entitled to mourn for her marriage any way she chooses. Is it a buzzkill sometimes? Yes. As her friend, I listen and try to steer the conversation to happier topics. Should Ramona have defended Sonja when Dorinda alleged that Sonja cheated on her ex? Again, yes.

Write It, Regret It


I think the text Sonja sent to Ramona calling her a POS was not the thing to do, but Ramona has NOT been a very good friend to Sonja lately. The friends who stay with you when you are down are the ones you want around during the good times. None of us are immune to life’s pitfalls (#me) and instead of shaming Sonja, I think the girls should let her work through this so that she can come out on the other side. Sonja’s been stuffing her feelings down for so long that it may take her a while to feel happy again, but I know she will! 

The Jean-Georges brunch at the Topping Rose was great, and we were supposed to end our weekend on a high note. Instead, Ramona left Sonja staring at an empty chair, which was awkward for everyone. My heart went out to Sonja, because she’s being rejected at a time when she needs her friends the most. I won’t abandon her because I understand the #GirlCode! She’s my friend in the good times and the bad.

Until next week, wear what makes you feel fabulous…because you are!
