'Real Housewives of New York' Reunion Recap: Sonja Morgan Is Uncomfortably Out of Touch With Reality

sonja morganIt's weird, it didn't seem like there was much drama this season on RHONY. In fact, this season was pretty boring. But the reunion totally made it seem otherwise. Right out of the gate, the ladies started fighting with one another. It started with Aviva Drescher and Kristen Taekman rehashing their issues, complete with Kristen telling Aviva to "shut the f*ck up." Then it got into Ramona Singer and Kristen's feud (who could forget Ramona pegging a wine glass at Kristen's face, drawing blood?). Then it got into everyone against crazy Aviva. And the denouement was when everyone confronted Sonja Morgan, wanting to know what in the hell is going on with her finances, businesses, and all those interns living at her house.

To be honest, it was a little uncomfy to watch and, as one viewer pointed out, a little reminiscent of Grey Gardens. Sonja sat there, trying to defend herself and all the money she has, but clearly she was embellishing stories and, to be honest, not making much sense at all. She talked in circles, mentioning various businesses she had; how she made money as a model when she was younger and invested said money in the house-flipping business; and how P.Diddy hung out on her yacht, which, LuAnn de Lesseps pointed out, is non-existent. It was weird and, if you're anything like me, probably made you wonder if she's just putting up a front or if she really is that out of touch with reality. I mean, I'm not the only person who felt that Sonja didn't seem "all there" this season, right?

Again, it's a little sad to watch, as clearly Sonja is trying to hold on to aspects of her old life with white knuckles. If only she would sit down and actually listen to someone who has advice for her. She's got a lot going for her still, but I don't think she's going to realize that until she comes to terms with some other things.

What did you think of the reunion?

Oh PLEASE Sonja is the worst liar around and she NEEDS to be in the spot light because she's afraid people won't remember her. Her so called Chateau in France is in a state of total disrepair there were pictures of it. Something that should have sold for millions sold for just a few hundred thousand and that was for the property not the building and pool. I liked that they had the CRAZIES on one side and the almost normal's on the other.(I say almost normal's because normal people would be on a Reality show

I don't understand why everyone is quick to forgive that crazy Ramona. Her husband will leave soon

You are right on with your comments. Holding on to the past, very weird. An not to mention her non-existent businesses.

I don't understand why people are not complaining about Kristen , she is so annoying and thinks the world revovles around her. I also think Luann is putting on an act , we have seen her for 6 years . Carole and Heather are the only normal ones on the show

I find it very interesting that Bravo made a rule after last seasons reunion fiasco that there were to be no more props, but crazy Ramona had a plastic glass and eventually tossed it, just another example that Andy Cohen talks out both sides of his mouth.

Sonya is like this season's Kelly Bensimon, just cracking up on national television. Get rid of Aviva...you should be out the door when the only interesting thing you've done all season is throw your prosthetic leg across the room!
