Sonja accused Heather – who did the design work gratis for her as a favor – of never quite understanding Sonja’s vision for the logo, and Heathersnapped back that she doesn’t know what hard work is. Sonja then proceeded to explain that she wanted a “creative campaign” for her toaster oven line and then whipped out some logos which were created by her fans as an example. Even host Andy Cohen thought that move was unsavory, and Heather certainly didn’t appreciate being made into a “joke” by Sonja.
In her latestBravo blog, Heather explained that she was insulted by Sonja’s move in producing those “sexy j” cards during the reunion.
“Sitting on the sofa and having her pull out those cards with her 'sexy j' was not shocking, and much as it was insulting,” she wrote. “I have more respect and appreciation for Sonja’s young fan who took an opportunity to get her graphic work out there than I gained during my entire experience with Sonja. Sadly, instead of potentially showcasing a young talent, it only went to prove how much Sonja actually 'missed' during the project.”
According to her, Sonja “sits still with an empty prototype box, waiting for its toaster over and is still singing about her a ‘sexy j.’ Anyone with diligence and focus could have taken the packaging and campaign we created, gotten in front of a buying team, if not several, for tons of feedback and launched that d*mn toaster oven six months ago.”
