Sonja Morgan has had a rough season 8 on RHONY; she’s been alienated by her co-stars, judged for her drinking, and dumped by her friend with benefits of 10 years for her once roommate LuAnn! Sonja has been shunned from most of the RHONY events, and after she finally vowed to quit drinking was she somewhat welcomed back into the group. Sonja swears that we haven’t seen the best of her yet, and she will finally speak her peace at the highly-anticipated RHONY reunion!
“I just felt like there was a lot of flip-flopping, lack of loyalty, more than meets the eye. I don’t like when the women don’t fess up to what they’re really thinking and why they really did things. I’m still pissed off about the Berkshires and Dorinda,” Sonja spilled to Vulture. Adding, “She’s very disappointing and talks out of both sides of her mouth. To say she didn’t have me in the Berkshires because she was worried about me is bulls***, okay? I live in a five-floor house — I fall up the stairs, not down. If you’re worried about me, why not have me instead of leaving me alone in New York when my daughter is away for Christmas with her father? There was no one talking to me off-camera saying that they were worried about me, taking me for Chinese food and a movie. Nothing.”
Viewers were shocked that Sonja actually gave up the booze, and her former BFF Ramona Singer is part of what pushed her to that point. If you recall Ramona is the one who first confronted Sonja over her drinking this season, and I think we can all agree it was a bit hypocritical! “I just quit drinking because they were saying it was a problem. But look at them! At least when I’m drinking I’m showing everyone a good time. I give them a flash, I give them a kiss. I have fun, like you say, I’m everyone’s favorite floozy. I’m the straw the stirs the drink. When they drink, they’re just bitchy and mean. Then Ramona pissed me off because she was like, ‘I’m single now, I don’t want to be associated with that.’ What, girl? Single or not single, you can do yourself in without my help. I’ve been bailing you out for years. You’re embarrassed? You’re embarrassing before people even meet you! I’ve been apologizing for you for years. I’m invited because I am fun at parties. I’m disappointed with the girls. I think they need to get their own lives instead of looking at mine,” Sonja explained!
I am loving Sonja this season, and do feel bad for the way she’s been dissed by her co-stars! She’s been great for every WWHL appearance this season, and sobriety clearly suits her. I am hoping this is not her last RHONY season, but her role was definitely reduced this year. Hopefully she owns it at the reunion and will be able to make her comeback on RHONY season 9; if not there is always the possibility of a Sonja In The City spin-off!
