'The Real Housewives of New York': Follow the bouncing blondes

Oh, there has been a shift in the tides over on "The Real Housewives of New York City." And for some strange reason, it has to do with the blondes on the show.

Does everyone remember the funny, flirty Sonja Morgan of last season? Now, we're thinking she had us all fooled. Did the notoriety of being a housewife get to her head or what? This season, she's acting like a know-it-all, arrogant, sex-crazed uptown snob. Does someone need to tell her the role of Samantha on "Sex and the City" has been cast?

In Thursday's (April 28) episode, she decided it's her job to get Ramona Singer and Kelly Killoren Bensimon back together. Along the way, someone filled Sonja's head with the idea that she was some kind of peacekeeper (please refer to gay wedding march-gate, Sonja). Sure, it wasn't Cindy Barshop's place to warn Kelly that Sonja was planning some kind of friend intervention while the kids played tiddlywinks in the other room. But, we feel she had to do what she had to do. While the show producers would have loved to capture that awkward setup, Cindy probably saved both Ramona and Kelly from ripping each other's heads off in front of the little ones and the therapy sessions that would have required afterward.

What better example of Sonja's misguided belief that she is queen of the world than the horse basically throwing her off?

When sand angels are the craziest thing Kelly does, something's not right in NYC.

Then, we have Ramona who has been very single-minded lately (yes, more than usual). Ramona does what she wants and doesn't really think about the consequences, sure. Forget that she insulted both Cindy and LuAnn De Lesseps that first night in the Hamptons. That's to be expected from her. But, now she just seems to need a whole lot more attention and seems to get wound up way too easily. She walks into a room and no one could get a word in edgewise. Get that woman her pinot already! Does she have to ask twice or seven times?

Later at Cindy's non-birthday birthday party, Ramona was so determined to get her beef with Cindy's brother out and over with that she forgot where she was. She was this panicky blonde bobble head and if we didn't know better we'd think she skipped her meds that day.

You know things aren't quite right in the world when Kelly no longer speaks in tongues and comes off the sane one. We can only hope that when Jill Zarin gets back from Australia, her antics will even out the playing field. Who knew we'd ever miss her?
