After the The Real Housewives of New York ladies returned from Carole Radziwill's boyfriend Russ Irwin’s St. Barts concert on Season 5, Episode 15: “Vacation, All I Never Wanted”, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan appeared to be enjoying some fine wine and other imbibements. But was Aviva Drescher's comparison of Sonja to Anna Nicole Smith accurate or out of line?
“I think that Sonja is a bit of a legend in her own mind,” Aviva said in a confessional. She then compares Sonja, who is busy blow-drying a red dress in her suite with Ramona, looking a little unsteady as she goes, to Anna Nicole Smith. May she rest in peace, Anna was notorious for being one of the sweetest women in the world who may have suffered from long-term substance abuse, and seemed to the world to fall in love quite easily.
“There’s just an inelegance to them when they’re drinking and partying,” Carole says in her own confessional. It’s true that Sonja did seem to carry on a bit, admitting over dinner that she drank an entire bottle of wine. Aviva also compared Sonja to Anna because they both married older, wealthy men, and once those relationships ended, they found themselves a little lost.
Tell us in the reaction buttons below whether or not you think Aviva was apt in her comparison or if the joke was a little cruel.
The Real Housewives of New York airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
