Sonja v. Alex — after what happened on the April 14 episode of ‘The Real Housewives of New York City,’ whose side are you on?
Has The Real Housewives of New York City blonde alliance fallen apart? On the April 14 episode, Sonja Morgan created some major drama when she made a charity event all about her. And that didn’t settle well with her co-star Alex McCord — especially when Sonja wouldn’t let Alex’s husband Simon van Kempen speak at the event.
But the cat fight peaked when Alex arrived at Sonja’s house for a party. They girls got into a heated argument over what happened at the marriage equality walk. Sonja got so fired up that she kicked Alex out of her house. Now, both women share their feelings of what happened with HollywoodLife.com exclusively!
“I will always be there for Alex,” Sonja tells us. “I threw her out like a good friend would — because she as going to embarrass herself.”
Sonja wasn’t happy with how Alex and Simon conducted themselves at the event. “They tried to shimmy their way into this event,” she explains. “Countess LuAnn de Lesseps and Ramona Singer didn’t try. Jill Zarin — we could hardly get her to come. It was about them trying to shimmy in.”
“Alex, from Ramona’s rooftop party to the wedding in the Hamptons, had her knickers in a twist about this thing,” she says. “I don’t know why she made it all about me. It was just my day to speak. I felt special. In my world, it was my day. Obviously when you go to a charity, it’s not about you — everybody knows that.”
“One person should never try to overshadow a cause,” Alex says. “What went down between Sonja and myself was crazy. I still can’t even wrap my head around it. It was not a day about me or her or Simon — or anything by marriage equality.”
Alex had tried to put what happened behind her, but it was brought up again at Sonja’s party. “I really didn’t expect to walk into her house and have her put it out right there,” Alex explains. “There was a moment, I thought let’s move on. But that’s not what happened. I felt she was going after Simon, I saw red.”
But now with the drama over and the women are done filming, are they past the big moment?
“This is certainly a big hurdle,” Alex admits. “Where we’re at, something has to happen.”
