Miss Morgan always provides the comic relief RHONY viewers need. Whether she’s paling around with her BFF the Ramonacoaster or talking about poop, she’s a fan-favorite on the show. Her reputation is definitely much shinier than Ramona’s, even if the two do get in a good deal of trouble together.
And while we’re full-speed ahead with the new cast, a ghost from RHONY past is making a return. Barbara Kavovit, Lu’s former
soldier longtime friend, is running for mayor of New York City. Barb the Builder didn’t last long on the show, mostly because she was pretty bland, but was there to support Lu during a very tumultuous time in her life. Even if she was caught saying that the Countess can’t really sing. But now she’s turning a new leaf, looking to politics. And since her announcement, we’ve obviously been wondering if any RHONY ladies would be all aboard the Barb For Mayor campaign.
According to Page Six, Sonjarita will not be one of those people. She was asked if she would vote for Barbara. “I didn’t think much about it,” she laughed. “I think Barbara has other things to take care of other than other people, you know, that’s just my humble opinion.” And there you have it, New York City’s timeless lady has spoken. Maybe it’s because Barbara came for Sonja, claiming she’s not nice, which I just absolutely refuse to believe.

Sonja added that she’s looking for a mayor who is “strong” and “financially stable and not in it for the handshake or the glory.” That totally sounds like a dig at Barbara’s financial issues in recent years. “I want someone that really loves this city and that goes for our governor as well… I miss Bloomberg. I miss Mayor Koch. I miss Dinkins,” she said. “We need somebody with gumption and grit. Who’s not in it for the glory or the money or the book deal.” Unlike Dorinda, Barbara as of now does not have a book deal in the works. But never underestimate the power of a Housewives’ friend-of looking to milk the most out of their 15 minutes of fame.
While Barbara’s RHONY days are long behind her, Sonja might have someone knocking on her townhouse doors begging for a room. Tinsley Mortimer has been eyeing a return since her breakup with Coupon King Scott Kluth. Given their history, Sonja is unlikely to welcome Tins back in her home, but never say never.
