I don’t care what anyone thinks — I’m ride or die for Sonja Morgan forever. Since she first debuted on Real Housewives of New York, I’ve been in love with her. Yeah, she sometimes has a little too much to drink, but who doesn’t from time to time? She’s goofy and hilarious. She’s a good friend. An amazing dog mom. And I want nothing but the best for her — including successful business ventures and finally landing her Mr. Right.
Throughout her time on RHONY, Sonjarita has been a bit of a punching bag. Ramona Singer and Sonja tend to go back and forth every season, even though they’re besties. Luann de Lesseps and Sonja seem to have a competitive friendship that isn’t filled with a whole lot of support. Thankfully, we have Eboni K. Williams and Leah McSweeney supporting our girl this season as she clearly goes through a tough time. Even if you’re anti-Eboni and Leah, you have to admit that.
And one of Sonja’s most hilarious traits is her trove of interns that follow her around her never-ending (and seemingly never selling) townhouse. Why does Sonja need a million interns? Who knows. What exactly do they do? Who knows. Pickles is the most memorable of Sonja’s tribe that comes to mind, but she always has different ones. And not to rag on my girl, but it is fun to poke fun at.
And most recently, Southern Charm Grande Dame Patricia Altschul threw a dig at Sonja and her interns, but not exactly in a light-hearted way. Instagram account @commentsbybravo captured it all. It started with Pat posting a photo of one of her interns on Instagram. A fan asked in the comments, “Is this like a @sonjatmorgan intern program???” And Pat clapped back, “no.. mine is an actual paying job.” Well that’s a burn if I’ve ever seen one. Sounds like Patricia isn’t a big fan of Sonja with a Sexy J. As far as I’ve seen, Sonja hasn’t responded. But maybe it’s for the best.
The back and forth sparks the idea for a Bravo spinoff that’s the battle of the interns — New York vs. Charleston. May the best (most productive) group win an actual permanent job for one of the Bravolebs. And the runner-ups will be awarded toaster ovens, Sonja by Sonja Morgan outfits and a grab bag of Patricia’s HSN goodies. Hell, I’ll apply for all of that.
TELL US – ARE YOU TEAM PATRICIA’S INTERNS OR TEAM SONJA’S INTERNS? WHAT DO YOU THINK EITHER GROUP OF INTERNS DO FOR EACH OF THE BRAVOLEBS?
