Following the news of Bethenny’s latest product launch, the Real Housewives of New York City cast member revealed if she feels Bethenny’s item is a “cheater brand” before naming her “most genuine” co-stars and opening up about her history with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Kathy Hilton.
“Listen, things get very complicated. When the show was airing, she was being fed a lot of [bullsh-t] from [Ramona Singer] and [Dorinda Medley]. I’m just going to put that out there,” Sonja explained on the June 29 episode of WWHL. “What’s important is that Bethenny and I got through that. We discussed it… She didn’t know I was an owner.”
“I don’t think [it’s a cheater brand],” she continued. “I think there’s plenty of room for her to do toasters, for me to do toasters when it’s right for me.”
Later, during the WWHL: After Show, Sonja was asked which of her RHONY cast members are the most genuine friends.
“I couldn’t be any closer than I am right now to [Luann de Lesseps] and Ramona. They’re like family. But I became very close with [Eboni K. Williams] because we were both raised by our grandmothers. We bonded over that and just being alone in the city,” she revealed, turning to fellow guest Leah McSweeney and adding that she is “very genuine” as well.
“We’ve been talking a lot lately,” Leah agreed. “I feel like I talk to you more than you talk to Ramona [and Luann]. You’ve known them longer. We’re talking all the time. It’s great.”
Also during the after-show, Sonja accused Luann of having double standards when it comes to drinking, saying that she doesn’t like people to drink when she is sober but encourages others to drink when she is.
“Luann, when she’s not drinking, nobody else can drink. When she’s drinking, she tells me to drink,” Sonja shared.
“Kathy Hilton and I go way back when I was dating Prince Albert working on Princess Grace’s Foundation she was always there with the Hearst girl. So I know those two ladies, way back, way before I was married,” she stated.
The Real Housewives of New York City season 13 airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
