Heather Thomson is taking to her Bravo Blog this week to discuss and explain why she was so perturbed by Amanda Sanders. Heather couldn’t believe that Amanda would be so disrespectful at Sonja’s show and then try to kiss her butt face to face. Heather also explains to viewers why she is so tired of Aviva’s behavior.
Heather writes, “”Sonja with a Sexy J” is really one of a kind. She is a whole can-of-mess, but I gotta say, she is most lovable. Despite the ups and downs I have had with her, Sonja doesn’t have a malicious bone in her body. She never means harm.
She’s no dummy either. Sonja knows what’s up and when she realizes she is in for far more than she can handle she mans up and leans on just doing what she loves to do– being her true eccentric self, and she goes for it! That’s what tonight’s LGBT fundraiser is all about after-all, isn’t it?
The party was 1920s themed. It’s a fun theme to doll up and I thought all the girls looked amazing and brought the glam! Kristen, dripping in Jennifer Miller Diamonds was fierce, and the guys really brought the spirit of the Gatsby era.
LuLu! I am so happy to see her! It’s been weeks and I am always happy hanging with Lu. She is a true friend of mine, and we always have a good time together. I adore her and Carole both so the situation between them is unfortunate. Especially because they both actually like each other! I just need them to connect on another level but tonight, with the whole Aviva drama, it is not the right moment.
Of course, Aviva wastes no time trying to wrangle LuAnn over to her side of this vicious fight she started. Meanwhile, I’ve encouraged Carole to take up LuAnn’s invitation to her dinner party. LuAnn and Carole both know I am quite close with the other, and I’ve heard it said, “The longest distance between two people is a misunderstanding.” So I am hopeful they can easily clear up the misunderstandings between them — even with Aviva’s added fuel to the smoldering fire. But for now, it’s Sonja’s night!
Sonja’s performance may have reeked of a lack of preparation, but she is so in her element and she is so infectious and she’s such a ham on stage that she pulled it off! You only get to see a piece but it was a very long monologue and she was very witty and funny. I was proud of her, I was proud of her getting out in front of a great cause, literally. That’s how Sonja “Sexy J” rolls. Love it or leave it.
Right before the act, I notice the terrible seating arrangements and I quickly switch around the placecards that had Aviva and Carole seated together. I felt I was covering for Sonja’s oversight and, with a quick one-two switch, I was acting for the betterment of the entire evening, so we could all sit together and support Sonja on her night. What I didn’t anticipate was Aviva’s image consultant’s loud, obnoxious comments! Sure, it’s easy to criticize the performer from the shadows — but this is for charity and awareness after all, you cow! Aviva’s image consultant’s garish play-by-play commentary of Sonja’s performance was almost surreal. Could someone actually be that rude? (Oh! Just you wait!!) All I am thinking is “Who is this woman who keeps coming around with her opinions and her nose turned up and boobs hanging down!” Ugh! She is just so annoying and now she’s just plain rude.
LuAnn persuades me to brush it off and we get to dancing. . .even joining Sonja on stage! In the end, we had a lot of belly laughs, the night was a success for LGBT and we know how to bring the fun wherever we go!
But now, what the hell is Harry doing lunching with his ex-wife on a set up? Oh! What Harry Dubin does so well. . .women! Ya gotta love Harry, but his date, not so much.
I am looking forward to hanging at Lu’s house tonight and I am loving Carole’s attitude about the recent events. She is not going to let the guest-list rule her life and she has taken LuAnn up on her invite. Like at Sonja’s event the night before, there is usually enough room to casually avoid the people you don’t want to hang out with unless they confront you. LuAnn and Carole have both gotten to know my trainer Will thru me — and he’s out East training for WILLSPACE. Will is always a great energy to have around and Lu invites Will to join us at her party. Will and Carole know each other quite well, and I am happy knowing that she has Will as a distraction she enjoys too!
Why can’t I remember her name? Oy! Whoever she is, she’s here again and now I can see among other things she’s also completely two-faced sucking up to Sonja after talking so terribly behind her back! Ugh, it doesn’t matter. . .We have bigger fish to fry. Sonja and Lu think it is time for a Carole and Aviva sitdown and are hoping for a quickie makeup. Not a good idea. Lu doesn’t at all understand what Aviva did to Carole with her ridiculous representations and false accusations. It was beyond the pale. . .not something you can simply brush under the carpet and there are some real issues here. Sonja should know better! She knows the sting all too well. Sonja knows how it feels to be on the receiving end of an Aviva rant and it’s never simple.
Carole is a true author and the process of writing for her is very personal. She is an artist. Aviva not only made the entire field of writing, journalism, and publishing seem like a joke with her “long email” descriptions and the “word on the street” stories in her head, but she also cast doubt on a dear friend’s career with lies. I have a personal problem with these things. I am seeing a pattern that is glaringly obvious and not so pretty in someone I called a friend and I am no sitting duck.
However, I am not going to threaten Aviva over it. Nor did I. I am honest with Aviva about how I feel about what she’s done. It’s not an “icy reception” and I’m not playing games. I am not feeling you Aviva! I am upset by your behavior and it’s not getting any better with this image consultant of yours constantly flanking you and flapping her jaw. I’ve about had it with this bulls— behavior of Aviva’s and she wants to know why? So I am trying to tell her and trying to hold composure but even a lady (who says f— a lot), has her limits. . .”
