'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?
