Sonja Morgan got particularly feisty during last night’s Real Housewives of New York Season 5 Reunion Part 1 episode when the subject of her pal Harry Dubin came up. Harry, who is co-star Aviva Drescher’s ex-husband and the father to her son Harrison, has been friends (possibly with benefits) with Sonja for decades, so she didn’t much care for what Aviva had to say about him on the reunion show.
When host Andy Cohen asked Aviva whether it gets old hearing about Harry all the time — most recently, when Ramona Singer called him up to pry into Aviva’s emotional health on Season 5, Episode 17: “Don’t Make Room For Daddy” — Aviva said that it does get annoying to constantly hear about “Harry, Harry, Harry.”
“He’s my ex, for a reason,” she declared. “I’m sure that Sonja wouldn’t like it if we talked about her ex all the time.”
Sonja launched back at her quickly for that one, pointing out that Aviva brings him up more than anyone of the cast, which LuAnn de Lesseps (another of Harry’s rumored “friends”) confirmed, and that Aviva never mentioned it being a problem before. “You bring him up more than anyone, and I thought there was no problem so why can’t we talk about Harry? Everyone in the city and internationally loves Harry … Who doesn’t love Harry? But you’ve never said ‘I have a problem with Harry’ except behind his back or to the news,” Sonja insisted.
In her latest Bravo blog, Sonja took the matter a step further and explains in detail why it is that she’s totally Team Harry.
“I've known Harry for decades and I've known Aviva for seconds; why would I side with her against the facts as I see them?” she wrote. “I'm not feeling Aviva needs to be protected from Harry. Anyone who meets Harry knows he's a bon vivant, a loving dad, and a loyal friend, who would give the shirt off his back. He comes from a very wealthy family, but it's not his money to give away. I feel he's a blessing in my life, as do many people, and he has a son who adores him.”
In case you missed it, Aviva is currently inbroiled in a court case with Harry, whom she claims owes her child support. She also claims that their son, Harrison, doesn't have health insurance because of Harry. The pair got into a "screaming match" at the Golden Pear in the Hamptons after Aviva confronted Harry for buying fancy food instead of paying his child support.
It sounds like if and when Aviva returns for Season 6, if Sonja’s still around, she better prepare for even more Harry talk!
The Real Housewives of New York Season 5 Reunion: Part 2 airs on Monday, October 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
