On Wednesday's new hour, Dorinda Medley decided it would be nice to take the ladies to Ventfort Hall, a Jacobean Revival-style mansion built in 1893 for Sarah Morgan, the sister of J.P. Morgan, the great-grandfather of John Adams Morgan, the ex-husband of Sonja Morgan. Still with us?
Sonja loved the history and the art, but the memories of the mansion seemed to trigger something in her. She started to think about the townhouse she used to share with her ex, which was very difficult for her to part ways with last year. She still sports the Morgan family crest and speaks nostalgically about her marriage, often worrying her co-stars that she's "stuck in the past."
At one point, Dorinda gently touched a handwritten letter that was sitting on a desk in one of the rooms. She wanted to know what it said, but Sonja quickly reprimanded her for putting her fingers on a family heirloom.
"Maybe it's all the old wood and the dust and the smell of mold, but it goes from Sonja to Lady Morgan very quickly," Luann de Lesseps pointed out. Ramona Singer noticed Sonja was starting to spiral, too, so she notified Dorinda, and the gang headed home.
Back at Blue Stone Manor, Sonja started to drink. A lot. By the time dinner rolled around, she was three sheets to the wind. First, she asked Bethenny Frankel if she'd have sex with her (this is not an uncommon request). Then, she lashed out at Barbara Kavovit for trying to "steal" Bethenny from her.
"You come near her room tonight, I'm gonna punch your face out," Sonja slurred while she took another sip of her rosé.
"What are you talking about, Sonja?" Dorinda asked.
"I'm talkin' about the truth!" Sonja shouted.
When Bethenny asked Sonja to drink some water, she did, then told Bethenny they were "goin' all night."
"We're going to the billiards!" she continued as she picked up Ramona's dog, Coco, and plastered his little body to her chest.
When Dorinda got up to go save the dog from Sonja's grip, something in Sonja snapped. She went from trying to seduce Bethenny and Coco to lashing out at Dorinda.
The ladies were talking about jewelry their exes had given them when Dorinda mentioned she had a diamond from her late husband, Richard, that she never wore.
"Oh, boy, here we go!" Sonja shouted. Everyone was confused and asked Sonja what was wrong. "No, I have no problem talking about Richard!" she maintained. "So she doesn't want to talk about my husband?"
Tinsley Mortimer reminded Sonja that Dorinda had taken them all to a Morgan estate earlier that day, just for Sonja.
"I said, 'Look at these antiques,' and Dorinda put her paws all over these letters," Sonja slurred before shouting, "You go in that house, YOU DON'T TOUCH THOSE F--KING LETTERS! YOU DON'T TOUCH THE F--KING MORGAN LETTERS!" She was inconsolable.
Earlier in the episode, Bethenny exchanged a few words with Dorinda, too, only they weren't about Dorinda.
Dorin confided in her how Lu acted last episode when she found out Bethenny had been promised Hannah's room. Luann took jabs at "Madame Bethenny" for always getting her way and reprimanded Dorinda for not giving her the best room, given how rocky their relationship had been. She also caused a scene and stormed out of the restaurant they were at.
Bethenny was stunned to hear of Lu's tantrum because Bethenny played a significant role in her intervention.
"Why is Luann talking behind my back at all saying any negative thing about me whatsoever in any capacity at all in any iteration whatsoever?!" Bethenny blurted out in one breath. "She should be saying, 'You are the Lord Jesus Christ,' and I don't even know if I believe in that. I'm not Catholic."
"I really can't wrap my head around that," she added in a later confessional. "We went through this intervention together, and I didn't do what I did for her because I feel that she owes me, but saying anything negative or anything catty -- zero bandwidth."
