Are Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer still friends? On previous seasons of The Real Housewives of New York City, Sonja and Ramona were quite close. Yet on the latest season, they’re shown being more at odds with one another than on the same side. As Season 8’s episodes air, Sonja has made clear on social media that she doesn’t think Ramona to be a true friend who has her back.
On Friday, Sonja actually claimed that Ramona is drugged up. What led to the salacious claim? The actor, host, and director Michael Rapaport, an avid Real Housewives fan, tweeted that the moments when Ramona is the sanest one in the room are as rare as shooting stars. Sonja’s explanation for Ramona’s more calm demeanor this season is apparently drugs. Sonja tweeted that Ramona’s on tranquilizers. Sonja added that projection is Ramona’s game.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, when Ramona claimed on Andy Cohen’s talk show Watch What Happens Live that Sonja mixes anti-anxiety pills with alcohol, Sonja immediately lashed out at Ramona on Twitter. Sonja tweeted that it’s Ramona who’s on pills and day drinks. Sonja even tweeted that Ramona had a one-night stand.
In recent days, Sonja has gone on a bit of tirade against Ramona on social media. Just prior to her tweet that claimed that Ramona’s on tranquilizers, Sonja agreed with a viewer that Ramona’s “the biggest traitor ever.” Sonja said that she’s “stunned” by Ramona’s betrayal.
On Thursday, Sonja blamed Ramona for LuAnn de Lesseps saying that her fashion line wasn’t doing well. Sonja added that what Ramona said about her business were lies and implied that Ramona’s the fraud.
Sonja Morgan also seems to blame Ramona Singer for the drama between her and Bethenny Frankel. In response to a viewer who tweeted that Ramona wouldn’t be able to handle it if Bethenny talked to her the way she did to Sonja, Sonja tweeted that Ramona’s “up [Bethenny’s] rear and in her ear.”
Ramona’s not the only one who has Sonja fired up. Sonja tweeted that Dorinda Medley is fake for dis-inviting her from the Berkshires trip.
On the latest episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, Ramona confronted Dorinda over excluding her from the Berkshires trip. When Dorinda said that not everyone would have gone on the trip if Sonja was there and then admitted that it was Bethenny she was concerned about, Sonja blew up.
Dorinda has maintained that she didn’t want Sonja in the Berkshires because it wouldn’t have been good for her, given her recent drama with Bethenny over Tipsy Girl. Sonja didn’t, and still isn’t, buying that explanation. On Thursday, Sonja posted a tweet that seems to indicate that she believes that Dorinda, like Ramona, is sucking up to Bethenny for her own benefit.
As the episode aired, Sonja tweeted that she doesn’t need protection and pushy advice from “the suck ups,” which seemed to be a reference to Ramona and Dorinda.
Sonja places the blame on her Berkshires exclusion on Dorinda. Sonja tweeted that Bethenny didn’t even ask Dorinda to not invite her. Sonja pointed out that Dorinda signed up for the show’s drama.
Sonja outright accused Dorinda and Ramona of dumping her in favor of Bethenny Frankel because of money.
Sonja pointed out that she handled the drama that came with the group trips just fine in previous seasons.
Sonja even claimed that several of the other cast members actually texted Dorinda to tell her to not exclude Sonja from the trip. Sonja expressed shock that Dorinda, who joined the show last season, would treat her, who joined the show on Season 3, that way.
Sonja tweeted that she didn’t need to be left out of two episodes.
Many viewers have tweeted that Sonja Morgan should be happy that she didn’t have to go through the drama of the Berkshires trip. Sonja obviously doesn’t see it that way. Is Sonja particularly upset about not being included on the Berkshires trip because it cost her money? In October 2015, Page Six reported that Sonja, along with Ramona Singer and LuAnn de Lesseps, were holding out on filming The Real Housewives of New York City because they wanted better contracts. A month later, the New York Daily News reported that Sonja wanted the same type of pay deal that Ramona got for Season 7, which entailed her getting paid only when she appeared on the show. Ramona ended up with more money under that deal because she was in so many scenes.
