Sonja Morgan is never one to hold back. The Real Housewives of New York star puts her whole life and all of her opinions out there. It’s just one reason I love Sonja so much and will never get tired of her. Oh, and the dancing on tables and falling off a chair. It’s as charming as it is messy. The first episode of RHONY this season was a little gloomy for Sonja with her daughter leaving for college and Sonja finding herself all alone. But I’m confident she will bounce back with some fun for us as the season goes on. And she did give us some of her typical Sonja shenanigans by insisting on biting into her sandwich mid-hug with Luann de Lesseps. That is the kind of content we need right now.
While Sonja and her kookiness usually take center stage, I also feel like Sonja has always been very nice and welcoming to new cast members. But one person she doesn’t seem to take to is newcomer, Leah McSweeney. Sonja seems to have some unfiltered opinions to share about her already.
Sonja recently shared her thoughts about Leah with the Daily Mail. She said, “I always say Ramona’s [Singer] an itch I can’t scratch. This girl’s like a rash… the new girl.” Oop. You know it’s never a good sign when a housewife refers to a castmate as “this girl”.
Despite Leah saying that she got along pretty well with the cast, Sonja wasn’t exactly following along with that sentiment. She also referred to Leah as a “youngin.”

Sonja admits, “Well, you’re going to see a lot this season about what I have to say about Miss Leah, but one thing I can say she’s a bonafide New Yorker. This girl is tried-and-true a real New Yorker.” Sounds like Sonja is teasing that there is going to be some drama between them as the season goes on.
Sonja explains that Leah was always supposed to join the season 12 cast, even before Bethenny Frankel quit the show. Sonja is still Bethenny’s biggest supporter. She shares, “Leah was coming in before Bethenny told us she was leaving. Let’s get that straight. My girl B is never replaceable. And you all know that.” Yes, we do know that.

While it sounds like Sonja knows that this season will be different without Bethenny. There seems to be no shortage of drama either. I can’t wait for the next episode.
