When Sonja Morgan isn't performing impromptu burlesque shows and cooking eight-course meals in her handy toaster oven, she is quite the philanthropist. She has always been very involved with LGBT organizations and AIDS charities, and the Real Housewives of New York star was recently recognized by Inspired New York for her endeavors.
However, it wasn't all do-gooders and kind deeds…some attendees at the event wondered if there could be a romance blooming between Sonja and her co-star Aviva Drescher's ex-husband Harry Dubin. Of course, both Harry and Aviva (along with Bravo's camera crew) were on hand to support the flighty reality star as she accepted her award.
LuAnn reveals that the show is still filming. "It's actually been really good," she shares with WetPaint. "You know, this season, I'm friendly with people I never thought I'd be friendly with. There are a lot of changes in alliances." She won't reveal how things stand with Pinot, however!
Whether she's wearing floral, faux fur or satin, Ramona works her style, often with a bottle of wine in tow, even on the red carpet. Grab a glass of pinot and take a gander at our fashion flashback gallery of our favorite Real Housewives of New York star.
Tom dished, "Sonja gave an unprepared and somewhat rambling thank you speech (but she looked hot so who cares). It seems Aviva has made nicey-nice with her ex hubby Harry Dubin as he sat having friendly conversation with the ladies (Sonja, Aviva, Luann and the new girl) while they filmed for the show. I guess he's all caught up on his alleged past due child support?? Maybe he was dropping of a check? I didn't even know he existed."
According to Tom, the party was cramped and hot with a cash bar with, "some dude rationing out some drink tickets (2 to a person) to the VIPs. Near the end they ran out of tickets and I heard the waitress ask Luann for her credit card which she gave to pay for the last round and a bottle of Ruffino sparkling wine that I drank with some friends (Thanks Countess!)."
Tom shares that there was a lot of filming going on for the new season – and he even ruined Aviva's entrance footage. "While walking in I kissed Aviva hello as she was getting out of her towncar. She kiss me and said ''You messed up the shot''. So they did it over. Sorry Aviva!! So much for unscripted."
Bethenny Frankel is arguably one of the most successful housewives in the franchise and – love her or hate her- she's also one of the best dressed.
Her style started out a little questionable in her early Real Housewives of New York days, but she is rarely seen anything less than NY chic nowadays.
We've rounded up the best and worst of Bethenny's fashion photos (the ones we haven't seen a million times already) from her time as a RHONY cast member through her spinoff shows, Bethenny Getting Married and Bethenny Ever After. I guess you could say it's also a bit of a farewell as Bethenny leaves reality TV behind and steps into her new role as talk show host in just two months!

Oh poor Aviva Drescher! She just wants everything to be about her, her, her! Sadly being an overgrown Veruca Salt (with a creepy daddy to boot) doesn't win you friends or fans on reality TV!
Rumor has it that producers for Real Housewives of New York hired an image consultant to boost Aviva's appeal to viewers. Good luck with that, Bravo! Aviva has been spotted filming several scenes with her longtime friend Amanda Sandersaccording to the NY Post's Page Six.
Sources reveal that Sanders, who is actually an image consultant in her real life, was hired by Bravo to "make over" Aviva and turn her into a more "likeable" Housewife – to both fans and her castmates!
