Bethenny Frankel’s co-stars warned her that Sonja Morgan is “all over the place” when it comes to her business ventures, but the Skinnygirl mogul had to see it to believe it! On this week’s Real Housewives of New York, Bethenny didn’t hold back when it came to criticizing her co-star!
The episode kicked off with Sonja explaining her financial issues to Bethenny. “I was a movie producer and I was sued,” she said. “They secured a $7 million judgment against me and I have to pay every dollar of it. There is a legal fee that goes into that because I filed a Chapter 11 to protect my assets.”
The bombshell encouraged Bethenny to help her friend get organized in her life – but it was easier said than done! Sonja said of her company, “International fashion lifestyle brands.” “But it’s not internationally yet because nobody knows about you internationally,” Bethenny said before quipping in her confessional, “What the f—k are you talking about?”
When Bethenny told Sonja to focus on one product, she was invited to check out Sonja’s new Spring/Summer 2015 line. She was shocked to learn that it would be launching in only a few months! “I know enough to know that in a couple of months you’re not just going to pull a clothing line out of you’re a—,” she said.
Bethenny then brought up Sonja’s failed toaster, explaining that her clothing line could follow the same fate as the defunct appliance. "I put my screenplay and my movies on hold because of the lawsuit and I said if people want to talk toasters I’ll stop talking about my sexy novel,” Sonja explained. A confused Bethenny responded, “I forgot that I took a hit of acid before I came into this meeting which explains all of this.”
When Sonja arrived to new girl Dorinda Medley’s cocktail party, Heather Thomson and LuAnn de Lesseps fired at her for not inviting them to the showing. “Why won’t she show me the samples? And why not Lu?,” Heather asked in her confessional. “We want to see her succeed. We want to see something tangible from her so why won’t she show it off to us?”
Ramona Singer then confronted her BFF for ignoring her throughout the evening. “You walked in and you completely dissed me,” Ramona said. “You didn’t say hello and for an hour and a half you didn’t acknowledge my presence. Is there any reason? My feelings were hurt.”
As Sonja loudly tried to defend herself, everyone looked at the boozy reality star. “Wacked, wacked out of her f—king mind,” LuAnn said. “When she gets to drinking she is so annoying I just want to strangle her.”
“The last person I wanted to hurt was you,” Morgan told Ramona as she hugged her. “The person I most want to protect is you.”
