Sonja steals the spotlight at the marriage-equality walk as the grand marshal of the event. When this happens, Alex and her husband Simon van Kempen start verbally attacking Sonja — just before she is about to get on stage and give her speech — about how Simon should be able to speak as well.
“I think as a friend, Alex should have supported me — swallowed a pill and said, ‘She’s speaking and we’re not and that’s the way it is,'” Sonja says. “It was the wrong time. I don’t need this kind of drama.”
But Alex and Simon continually nag Sonja until she walks onto the stage.
Later on, Sonja tries to be the bigger person and invites Alex to come to her house for an art party that she is throwing for her boyfriend Brian Farrell. But when Alex arrives, the fireworks explode!
Sonja greets Alex and they start discussing what happened at the walk.
“I don’t want to ever have Simon — is that your husband’s name? — in my ear like that ever again!” Sonja warns Alex.
“I was freaking out because I was about to make my speech. That was horrible.”
“Actually, what was horrible was you hijacking the entire event to make it about you and not marriage equality,” a desperate Alex responds. “You turned into a bridezilla!
“If I ever have your husband in my ear again …” Sonja says as the women get into a full-out screaming match.
Finally Sonja has enough and asks Alex to leave — but Alex won’t shut up.
“Now is not the time,” Sonja shouts. “This is my home. This is about Brian.”
“YOU CAN LEAVE!,” Sonja finalizes. “Out of my house! You have the worst manners. You are out!”
BFFs — whose side are you on — Alex’s or Sonja’s?
