Sonya Ivey (portrayed by Mia Korf) is a publicity director at Smash Records and its president Jade Morgan's assistant who appeared in "Don't Stop the Music". She is a playful and somewhat juvenile, teenager-like person who is always hungry for publicity. During this story arc, she was suspected for trying to ruin Lenni's video after two team members, Gaby and Hector, saw her publicity story about the accidents and one supposed future one which was to run over Lenni with a car. But in the end, it was revealed to be a story created for publicity.  Later, she was mugged by a thief, who turned out to be David the director, while bringing Lenni's video to MTV.
