Sonja Morgan Spills Her Secret to Staying Young

Sure, Sonja Morgan knows the value of scrubs and peels in maintaining a healthy glow, but the real secret to her fountain of youth isn’t found at any doctor’s office or spa. “I’m always having fun,” the Real Housewives of New York City star dishes to us. “I think it’s one of the secrets to staying young.”

Of course, dating an attractive younger man doesn’t hurt, either. “I flirt a lot, but I’ve been seeing Brian for three years,” Sonja tells The Dish about her artistic boy toy, who’s about four years her junior. “There’s nothing wrong with Brian, I’ll tell you! You know what I love about him? He never puts the toilet seat up; he always leaves it down. Good manners — no woman wants to fall in the toilet!” Amen, sister!

So, could this be a hint that Sonja’s planning trot out that wedding dress we saw at the marriage equality rally? “I would like to be married again,” The New York Housewife reveals. “But there [are] dates and then there’s marriage. I have no divorce settlement, so I’m working to maintain my home. It’s been messy, but I’m doing well.”

Tangled up in that ongoing divorce is her vacation retreat abroad. “I have a house in France, but it’s in the fight over my divorce, but I own it. Isn’t that funny?” Sonja says. Still, the hot mama has summer plans to fully unwind in France again this year, as well as Colorado, but she’ll kick off swimsuit season in “the smallest bikini” she can find this weekend in the Hamptons. “G-string preferably!”

Bravo

Dove being called out for their new “racist” ad!

I read the headline above, and thought to myself – how could Dove be considered racist? Really? People are too sensitive sometimes… then I saw the ad.

I’m sure it wasn’t intentional – but c’mon – no one noticed how bad this looked?

Now making the internet rounds: a new, supposed Dove ad called out for connoting an underlying bias. (Editor’s note: Dove hasn’t taken responsibility for the promotion, although commenters on various sites recount seeing it in magazines.)

Via Copyranter, comes the image for the brand’s VisibleCare body wash, showing three women — one black, one possibly Latina and one blonde — standing in front of “before” and “after” images. Copyranter’s takeaway: “Dove body wash turns Black Women into Latino Women into White Women.” Jezebel refers to it as “unintentionally(?) racist,”adding, “Bye-bye black skin, hello white skin! (Scrub hard!)”

If this advertisement proves real, it wouldn’t be the first time Dove’s practices have been questioned.

Last summer, someone affiliated with the beauty giant put up a casting notice for Dove’s “Real Beauty” campaign, looking for naturally fit, not too curvy and not too athletic women. Like, really? Dove quickly distanced itself from the posting, telling StyleList the notice “was not approved by the brand or agency team and did not reflect the spirit of the brand team’s vision….We believe our images demonstrate that real beauty comes in many shapes, sizes, colors and ages and we remain committed to featuring realistic and attainable images of beauty in all our advertising.”

What do you think?
