Heather Thomson, star of “Real Housewives of New York,” feels that she is a “glutton for punishment” when it comes to being on Team Sonja. Heather takes to her Bravo blog to explain her side of the story.
“I’ve always tried to be on TeamSonja. And to contradict her recent blog, I don’t ever, have never, and will never stand on a soap box unless I am advocating for a charity or helping others. I also don’t preach, and I don’t judge another. Strong opinions, however, mostly in areas I am well versed, I do often have. These are simple facts about me.”
I’m pretty sure we can all agree there’s nothing simple about any of the women on RHONY. Heather continues to clarify the “rabbit hole” she often finds herself in when dealing with Sonja.
“I have been down Sonja “Sexy J” Morgan’s rabbit hole before: spending valuable time, energy, and favors on her pursuits, unfortunately, to no end. I was not at the lunch Sonja referred to saying the girls haven’t been supporting her, nor was I picking on her at this event. I was simply not in the know that Sonja had sourced a group to back a fashion endeavor, hiring freelance consultants and a designer to pull a collection together.”
So where did it all go wrong at Dorinda’s cocktail party that left Sonja feeling attacked? You might be surprised to learn who Heather blames.
“I was interested to learn more about it (the brand) and lend whatever I potentially could. But, ‘The Countess’ boomed in and, as the case often goes, things flew off the rails. And it’s frustrating.”
Heather ends her blog with hopes of success for Sonja – sort of.
“I’ve genuinely wanted to see Sonja focus and succeed. As a group, we’ve all been waiting for so long to see something actually come to fruition from Sonja Morgan’s many, many pursuits. Personally, while I’m eager to see more in this new venture, I’m still rooting for her Nigerian Football team–that one remains an all-time favorite, but I’ve yet to be invited to a game or to this showroom. I would take the call, though.”
I am so lucky to combine blogging with my guilty pleasure of watching reality TV. I read all the comments and respond to most. Feel free to reach out to me. If you like fiction, I have two published novels: Three Days in Purgatory and A Reason to Run.
