Bethenny’s New Apartment
Then on RHONY, Sonja meets up with Bethenny who shows off her new apartment. She asks Sonja “How are you?” Sonja tells her “I’m good. I had a busy day to get over the drama with Ramona. I felt like Ramona didn’t have my back.” Bethenny asks “What do you mean?” Sonja says “Even women in prison have that one person who has their back. Ramona doesn’t have anyone’s back. She’s like a sociopath.” The ladies move on to talk about the situation with Tinsley.
Sonja is really hurt that Tinsley compared living in her house to the five circles of hell. Bethenny tells her “You need to stop talking so much and get straight to the point.” Sonja asks her “Do you think I should mail her back the gift certificate?” Bethenny tells her “No. You should keep it.” Sonja agrees and says “Maybe I’ll use it for a gift for my daughter.”
15. Cindy Barshop – With high hopes of filling Bethenny’s spot after her season 3 departure, Cindy was unable to make a lasting impression. Her superior attitude, petty behaviour, and blandness quickly became frustrating to watch. She was the first one-season wonder of #RHONY pic.twitter.com/W0YpCfEwuO

Can I get rid of them now?” Adam says “You absolutely can.” Tinsley squeals with happiness.

Sonja vs. Ramona
When Sonja arrives everyone seems to avoid her. Sonja seems ready to calmly confront her issues with Ramona. The calm doesn’t last long. Sonja tells Ramona “You know everything about me. I would never cheat on my husband and you know that.” Ramona says “People say things when they’re angry. We’re not twelve years old. You can fight your own battles.” Sonja fires back and tells Ramona “I have been there for you no matter what you’ve done.”
The Real Housewives of New York recap continues with it looking like the calm Sonja has gone right out the window as the two women are screaming at each other. Ramona says “Apparently you weren’t listening. All you had to say was I’m sorry.” This infuriates Sonja even more. Ramona tells her “You’re isolating yourself even more. You know what made it even worse? It was when Dorinda said you didn’t just bury your husband and you said stop it Sonja.”
By now everyone in the room is watching the argument. Ramona decides to leave rather than let the fight get completely out of control. Luann says “You know the event is over when the hostess leaves!” That’s it. We’ll see what happens next time on RHONY. Thanks for checking out Soap Dirt’s Real Housewives of New York recap.
