Sonja Morgan Goes From Fan Favorite to Not on The Real Housewives of New York City

This week's episode of The Real Housewives of New York City was the episode in which Alex uttered her now famous "Thug in a Cocktail Dress" phrase.

I don't think I heard Alex say this. I must have somehow missed it.

But, I did not miss the thug in a cocktail dress.

The thug, Sonja Morgan, managed, in 2 episodes of Season 4 of RHONY, to go from being a fan favorite to a Jill Zarin level of unpopularity.

Alex is being a bit intense, so far. She is not letting anything go.

On the Watch What Happens Live episode that followed the Housewives, this week, Sonja was the guest, along with David Arquette. The poll this week asked who's side you were on, Alex or Sonja. Alex won in a landslide with something like 78% on her side. About the same number Ramona got last week when the question was who's team you were on, Team Jill or Team Ramona.

On WWHL Sonja was a bit confusing trying to spin the whole Gay Marriage debacle. At one point she claimed she'd agreed to be the Grand Marshall and speaker prior to becoming one of the Housewives. Then the Gay Marriage people wanted her to be the Grand Marshall because she'd become a Gay Icon due to being on RHONY.

Sonja was being way too full of herself. And then when the thug moment happened, it was Sonja who started it. Alex was articulately explaining why she was upset with Sonja. Sonja was unable to articulate her point of view, so she did what those who are in the wrong usually do, she got loud and aggressive and insulting and kicked Alex out of her house.

I think the portrait that Sonja's boyfriend, Brian Farrell, painted of her really captured Sonja's essence.

Last week in the preview clip of this season of RHONY we saw Sonja's bare derrierre. It was not a flattering angle.

I wondered to myself if Sonja had greatly annoyed the producers of the show, with that butt shot being a hint that Sonja makes an ass of herself this season.

So far Kelly has been the best behaved of the Housewives. Surely Kelly can't keep crazy Kelly locked up for an entire season. I hope not.

I forgot to mention, Alex is selling those Thug in a Cocktail Dress t-shirts that you saw above. Speaking of Alex and clothes. Alex and Simon really need someone to intervene regarding the clothes they choose to wear. Particularly Simon.
