Sonja Morgan on WWHL

Amid the the center of the giant fall-out about Dorinda Medley‘s relationship, is the 20-year friendship of Dorinda and Ramona Singer. But are they truly that close?! Not according to Sonja Morgan, who hints that the ladies may be lying about their level of friendship! 

Dorinda didn’t bother to shield how hurt she was that Ramona broadcast a salacious secret about John on Real Housewives Of New York instead of speaking to her privately, because, after all, they are real-life, longtime friends. Supposedly… In her Bravo blog Sonja insinuates the ladies barely know each other!  

Dorinda! So dramatic. Friends with Ramona for 20 years? Then you know her,” asserts Sonja. “She has never been any different.”


Sonja continues, “Neither of you have been to each other’s homes until recently, so maybe you are now getting to know each other for real.” Yowzers! Interesting. Dorinda has been nothing but support of Sonja and Ramona – including hoping the ladies patch-up their issues. 

In fact Sonja admits she’s “so confused” by all the emotional drama that went on during the episode. “I feel like I’m at a tennis match with my head going back and forth.” (Ditto!)

“Not sure where John was going with his story about Skinny Cow? Like, who did skinny first? But it’s not his place to get all confrontational with the girls,” Sonja points out. “Or any woman. It’s not gentlemen-like. Dorinda is obviously going through something. I feel her pain.” 

Dorinda is going to the beach to Bethenny [Frankel]‘s party despite it all, because that is what we do! I’m so confused, though,” admits Sonja. “I thought Dorinda said she was embarrassed and done with John? But before that she was done with Ramona. But now she’s back to John and done with Ramona?”

“This IS getting real. Because if she knows Ramona 20 years, she knows that Ramona is always off the cuff and unfiltered.”

Regardless of how close Ramona and Dorinda truly are, Sonja is glad they worked things out. “I like when Dorinda says, ‘Let me figure it out on my own.’ I agree with that. We all go through passages at our own timing. Oh my, it’s over, it’s done. The apology. Been there with Ramona so many times. Again, welcome to my world.”

Now – on to the remainder of the episode’s drama, for which, of course, Sonja has comments! 

Sonja feels it wasn’t Carole Radziwill‘s place to comment on Jules Wainstein‘s weight. “They are both thin as rails,” she snaps. “The fact Jules gets her period IS a good sign, though.” (The ‘Team Sonja’ doctor agrees). 

“Not that I’m thin, but I am elderly in Jules‘ book. Well…there is something to be said for wisdom with age and having a good sense of humor,” Sonja teases. “Because, be honest, that just fell flat if it was meant to be funny. I know Jules, and she doesn’t have a mean bone in her body.” 

Sonja’s gag reflex was also activated – not over Carole being offended (in flashback) by Luann referring to Adam as “Sonja-young,” to which Sonja asks, “Hey Radz, whats wrong with Sonja-young?”; or by Ramona comparing cocktail olives to penises, to which Sonja comments, “I thought she was the prude always shushing me? I have created a monster. Or maybe that’s what divorce does? Hmmmm,” but from watching Bethenny open her divorce bill!  It hit a bit too close to home for Ol’ Lady Morgan. 

“I re-lived my own situation. It’s not worth the money spent to get nowhere but backwards. So frustrating,” sighs Sonja. “Gave it up a long time ago. Saved my soul, most of my fond memories and some bank by moving on with my own businesses and my daughter’s peace of mind.”
