To recap, Ramonja didn’t show up to support Aviva’s charity event for One Step Ahead, and gave leaky excuses for why they couldn’t go. Sonja said her dog had peed in her bed, and she had to rush him to the veterinarian.
“Are you beginning to get the feeling that Sonja has more baggage than a skycap at Kennedy?” asks Carole in her RHONY blog. “Sonja is crying at the lunch table about her dog peeing in bed. Is this normal?”
Carole had clearly, on camera, told Sonja not to bring up the dog when apologizing to Aviva for not showing up. As Carole puts it on her blog, “Short, sincere and sweet would have kept the peace.” So when Sonja immediately started talking about the dog and weeping, we have to sympathize with poor Carole, who must have felt like everything she said to Sonja went in one ear and out the other.
“Dog excuses seem suspicious, even when they are true,” says Carole. “Dogs do eat homework, they eat almost everything, but we’re not allowed to say it.” She goes on to explain that she’s had several family pets die, including her cat, who died on Carole’s pillow when she was nine. “I was stoic, even then,” Carole writes.
Do you agree with Carole that Sonja’s behavior was a bit theatrical and over-the-top? Or do you side with Sonja, who was in the process of grieving?
