Team Sonja V. Team Cindy! Sonja feels that Cindy insulted her by blowing her off and Cindy says that the ‘arguing isn’t over!’
The Real Housewives of New York City star Sonja Morgan continually tried to make friends with the newest member of the cast, Cindy Barshop, throughout the season to no avail. After Cindy gave her the cold shoulder and insulted her a number of times, Sonja tells HollywoodLife.com that she’s done being treated this way. She tried to get to know Cindy, but Cindy never let it happen!
“We were never friends,” Sonja tells us. “I met her through Ramona [Singer]. I never really got to know her.”
Sonja tried to give Cindy a chance, but then she got upset when Cindy started bashing Ramona to Jill Zarin. “I didn’t know Cindy. I welcomed her with open arms and when she said Ramona was not good to the core to Jill, I had her over for tea to say that wasn’t going to fly with me,” explains Sonja “There’s a pecking order. Ramona introduced her to the group and you take care of those that take care of you.”
Cindy then stood Sonja up for a lunch that she set up. “She knew before I left my home 35 minutes away that she wasn’t going to lunch with me,” reveals Sonja. And it went on! “She was upset that I didn’t want to go to Quogue an hour away for her nondescript party with the mystery invitation.”
But Sonja still tried to make friends with Cindy — even inviting her over for breakfast. “Then I have her for breakfast — a homemade breakfast — and she schedules a conference call during it,” remembers Sonja. “During a one hour breakfast? I’m a very busy woman. How long is my breakfast going to go?”
“I respect that Cindy is a business woman, [but] no one’s time is more important than someone else’s time,” says Sonja. “If one chooses to let your business override your personal time with your family and friends, that’s your choice. But when someone sets an hour aside for you to get to know you, especially after a rocky start, you’re with them — you give them your time. You show them that you are there for them. “
Cindy didn’t show Sonja any respect during that breakfast. “I would have loved to have been friends with Cindy, but if she’s going to insult me on my time, who needs friends like that?” questions Sonja.
To this day, Sonja doesn’t call Cindy a friend. “Our friendship never took off because she never spent any time with me — I never got to know her,” shares Sonja.
And to be honest, Sonja’s not upset by this revelation. “I have so many friends and family. My life is full,” she notes.
But while Sonja’s ready to move forward and put Cindy in her past, Cindy says the fighting is just not done yet.
“You will have to see what happens on the reunion, let’s just say the arguing isn’t over!” Cindy tells HollywoodLife.com.
BFFs — whose side are you on — Team Sonja or Team Cindy?
