Heather Thomson Bashes Sonja Morgan: “What Happened to Common Courtesy and Manners”

Posted on May 15 2015 - 7:12am by Norrth Cafe


Oh sure, Countess Luann wrote the book on etiquette, but The Lady Sonja Morgan is the housewife who puts the book to the test. She may have planned Ramona’s party, but she didn’t plan on the reaction from the other wives to her “no housewives in the house” policy: bad dogs! This week, Heather Thomson reacts to the trip to Atlantic City and to Bethenny’s attempt to bring the Lady Morgan’s feet back to the ground. About waiting in the rain:

“I totally understand running late. I’m usually not the best at being on time, and there never seems to be enough hours for all the things I try to jam into my day. I get it. I don’t like to pick on people about things like this, either. We were all given a time to meet at Sonja’s–10am. She wasn’t ready, and Bethenny was going to be late, too. The kind and hospitable thing to do at this point would have been to invite your guests into your home to wait, not leave them standing in the cold rain for over an hour. What happened to common courtesy and manners?”

I think Sonja’s behavior was understandable. These women all seem to think that they’ve been nothing but loving and kind to Sonja. Am I the only one who remembers the snickering and taunting? I am one who believes that Sonja 1) – exaggerates, but not lies, and 2) – lives too much in the past, as Bethenny pointed out. Sonja was married to a fabulously wealthy man and had an incredible life. Does she talk about it as if all of the glitz and glamour is still going on? Yes, but Heather, Kristen, and Carole have treated Sonja as if she lied about all of it and as if she is clinically insane.

In the highly stressful situations she was in (lawsuit, making alternate arrangements for her daughter), I can understand Sonja not wanting these women in her home. I just wish she’d made alternate arrangements for them.

“I was literally shocked when one of Sonja’s many interns told me “Lady Morgan isn’t receiving guests.” The same “Lady Morgan” who has allowed me to make sure she is able to get home safely is now forcing us to wait in her unheated vestibule. This was insane to me. I also found it very hard to believe Sonja was clueless about the car situation. She was the one who arranged all the details for this trip. Just invite us in, offer me a glass of water, and I would have been happy to wait it out for hours.”

A true friend would have done those thing without humiliating  an individual over those acts of kindness. I think it’s clear why Sonja wouldn’t want to risk having anything in her life or home to be used against her. Even in AC,  Heather accused Sonja of shedding fake tears. A true friend would know her better and would not have made such accusations.

“I also didn’t care that Bethenny was late. I wasn’t mad at all; I would have just appreciated a text. Only Sonja had been given a heads up, and since we were stuck out in the cold, that message wasn’t relayed. Kristen and I both have small children that we like to take to school, as well, but out of respect for the group and everyone’s time, we both made other arrangements this day.”

I believe Heather when she says she wasn’t upset with Bethenny as much as upset by the entire cluster pluck of a situation that morning. I think any mother can understand her point, here.

“All of the lateness debates aside, although I’m not a fan of Bethenny’s deliveries as of late, she did tell Sonja things she needed to hear, and that’s not easy to do. I respect that Bethenny was able to do it. I really just want Sonja to get better, and I think some of her behavior needs to be chalked up to choices. In the end, standing in the rain isn’t as important to me as someone’s health and happiness.”

HA! Heather made a funny! Bethenny’s deliveries? I think she is as equally abrasive as Bethenny… just more passive aggressive and a little more cartoonish in her approach… motherf–kers! I do agree that it was nice that Bethenny tried to help Sonja – in a way that was genuine and less mocking than the others in their so-called attempts. I was impressed with Bethenny’s ability to see that Sonja was reliving a life she would (most likely) never again have with her husband.

Until that episode, I never realized how much they had in common.

I’m an exasperated soap fan who keeps hanging on – waiting for the daytime I once loved to return to its former glory! Hey, it doesn’t hurt to have a dream. I learned to love soaps thanks to my wonderful mother and grandmother. I’ll always have fond memories of daytime, most especially of ‘Another World’, my first stoap love. The ever great, but sadly defunct, daytime shows like Ryan’s Hope, Search for Tomorrow, The Doctors, Loving, and many others keep a special place in my heart, as well. ♦ Norrth Cafe's BlogTwitterFacebook

    “Common courtesy and manners” are as foreign to Bravo HWs as a McDonald’s hamburger is to rainforest aborigines.

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    I think Heather could get her smile a little bigger than that…you can see every damn tooth she has in her mouth…

    • ROFLMAOOO!! Oooo Lawd….this comment has me LOL!!

      • WaWaWaWHAT!

        When I came to the site, her teeth slapped me in the face…damn o.0

    • Susie Whats Her Name

      lmao That’s the first thing I noticed too.

  • Heather is as ugly on the outside as she is on the inside. Heather really believes she’s the pillar of righteousness. She’s shown Sonja zero manners and respect. She’s nothing but a fake wannbe gangsta (remember motherf*cker from last season) and follower. She’s so far up the Cryptkeeper’a ass it’s disgusting to watch.

    Like any of that group know what manners are…

    There is no way to slice it. Sonja was wrong, you don’t even treat animals like that. She could have said to have the group meet elsewhere, that simple. What is she hiding that she can’t let people inside her house but hangs out with them on weekend getaways, birthdays, brunches, etc? What the blogger is implying makes no sense.

  • undergroundrailroadtrain

    Seriously Sonja. Why did you ask the ladies to meet at your place if you didn’t want them inside? She could have set up to meet at the limo service provider. Smdh. It is like that saying “common sense isn’t that common”.

    I have to agree with Heather on this one. Sonja was the one who planned this trip, she should have thought ahead & planned better. She should have been on top of things. She was the one who set the schedule. Why wasn’t she packed & ready to leave?
    It is beyond rude & totally classless to ask your friends to wait outside your house in the cold rain, period. Nevermind add the incessant jackhammering going on across the street.
    Very rude. You were in the wrong Sonja & you should have immediately apologized.

    I like the way Heather implied that Sonja is so mentally out of it she has forgotten what common courtesy is. Good one Heather!
    This would be a total deal breaker for me if were Heather, Kirsten, or Dorinda, ….Sonja would no longer be a friend of mine.

    • Ilivehereandlikeit

      Agreed. I don’t let strangers treat me that way let alone so-called friends. That would be my last visit ever to Sonja’s place, bravo or no bravo show.

  • HoyesMiGente

    Heather is so passive aggressive. Sonja was a slob for not inviting them in.
