Sonja Morgan (wearing a cute dress from her Sonja Morgan New York Collection) was in the clubhouse on Watch What Happens Live tonight, along with Housewives superfan Jerry O’Connell. Sonja shared her feelings on her co-stars, defended her ‘drinking’, and much more.
On her relationship with Luann’s fiance Tom, she says that they’ve known each other for a long time – more than ten years. She doesn’t exactly say how long they’d been hooking up, but she says it was a recurring thing. Sonja says that Tom did not get to test out her rejuvenated lady bits – but she reveals that she was with him right before Thanksgiving and Lu got with him right after Thanksgiving.
Sonja says she was very surprised about Jules and her husband getting a divorce. “I did speak with Jules. It’s devastating. There’s two young children involved. I know they’re pretty discrete people, generally, before they were on a television show. It’s hard. It’s a lot to take in.”
Andy reads Dorinda’s Tweet where she stood by her decision not to invite Sonja to the Berkshires. Sonja disagrees and calls Dorinda a liar and says she’s been doing this longer. Andy asked if she was relieved that she wasn’t there after seeing what went down. Sonja says “no, this is my job and that’s where I was supposed to be. I need to be there, to see Bethenny and to talk to her. I could’ve hidden in the closet with the broomsticks. I could’ve been there with Carole and Lu. I could’ve played Twister with Jules.”
Andy reads a Tweet from Luann to Sonja that said she and Tom love Sonja dearly but Tom said it (their hookup) was before Ramona stopped drinking and that Tom claims it was a one night stand. “Okay. Well, men do usually say that. Why would I lie? I wish it had never happened because I want him and Lu to be happy. I love them both. What motive would I have?”
Sonja reveals that she hasn’t given her new rejuvenated hoohah for a spin yet and that she’s even given up dating young guys.
When a caller asks Sonja why Carole and Bethenny are being mean and childish by excluding her, she says “I think Bethenny is getting a lot of information from Ramona, the original pot-stirrer of all pot-stirrers. And I haven’t had a chance to spend any time with Bethenny. I didn’t see her over the summer and so she didn’t have me at her first party and then I had my birthday party and she wasn’t there and then the girls got in her ear about the Tipsy Girl. I think that’s why. We had a very emotional moment and then Ramona comes on Watch What Happens Live and says “wasn’t that a fake cry?” So you can see she’s stirring the pot.”
Andy asks Jerry his take on the Tipsy Girl issue. “I would’ve liked to see Bethenny take a higher road. While Bethenny is not wrong – there are some similarities (Sonja agrees) – Bethenny’s got her thing and has been very successful. I’m not a Bravo executive but I’d like Sonja to pull a little Jill Zarin and show up at the Mexico trip uninvited. Boom.” Andy says “stay tuned.”
Is Ramonja dead or alive? Does Jerry have any advice for them to repair the friendship? Sonja says, “That’s what Jerry was just asking me. He doesn’t want to see it go down in history as dead. No one wants to see that go away.” Jerry adds, “I think true love always prospers.” Sonja says, “Time will tell. I’m a little tired of The Apologizer myself.”
Which Housewife would Jerry want as a mistress? “I don’t want to get in trouble here but rumor has it that one of the NY Housewives has hit the reset button downstairs, if you know what I mean. I’m old and married, but everyone loves that new car smell.” Andy has dubbed it the Vagonja.
Has Luann been a mentor to Sonja? “The thing is, Bethenny has always been an inspiration and mentor to me. And that’s why I was so upset when we had our fight.”
Sonja says that the Tipsy Girl is going – there are 10,000 cases in the warehouse of the pink prosecco. It’ll be at the restaurant and in liquor stores.
On the After Show, Sonja reveals that she tries to watch Southern Charm, but she finds it emotionally draining.
Sonja and Jerry share their thoughts on the blowout in the Berkshires: Jerry says that he didn’t like it because it’s not cool when two people (Bethenny and Carole) gang up on one person. Sonja says that she knows Bethenny has a lot on her plate, but it was unfair to Luann.
Sonja explains again that SHE can’t change the Tipsy Girl name since her two partners are the ones who trademarked the name.
A caller asks Sonja why she allows the women to bash her character season after season? “I think you see tonight, I’m starting to speak out. When you see the reunion, you’re gonna see me rip a few. I’ve had it. My mom raised me to turn the other cheek, but it gets to the point that you can’t just keep rising above it. Like Jill Zarin said ‘If you’re gonna tell lies about me, I’m going to start telling the truth about you.’ These girls are talking about me and my drinking. Yeah I have one drink I’m tipsy, I have two drinks I’m drunk, at three I’m yours. These girls are drinking day and night! Every day, all night. They shouldn’t be talking about me at all. So I just quit because I don’t HAVE to drink at lunch, you’ve never seen me drink here at work. I don’t drink at the reunion. I don’t have to, and I’m having a great time.”
TELL US – ARE THE LADIES PICKING ON SONJA MORE THAN EVER THIS SEASON? WHO DO YOU BELIEVE ABOUT THEIR HOOKUPS – TOM OR SONJA?
Poll question: Should Luann care that Tom gave his ex a gold bracelet? 71% voted YES.
Note: Hopefully Bravo will release the clip of Jerry reenacting Dorinda’s rant in the Berkshires. It was great!
