Reality Tea readers, y'all are in luck! We've found a real estate steal for you if you're willing to relocate to New York City for pocket change. Making the pot even sweeter? You could purchase the estate from a bona fide Bravo reality star. Who wouldn't want to live like Sonja Morgan (toaster oven not included)?
While her fate on the upcoming season of Real Housewives of New York was seemingly in limbo until recently, Sonja still needs to channel some creative money making schemes. Perhaps she should put her elegant Upper East Side townhome back on the market…oh, wait.

Sonja isn't a novice when it comes to listing her swank property, although she's quick to pull it if she doesn't feel like she's going to make what she deserves. According to The Real Deal, Sonja decided to relist her home for a measly $9.95 million…just a few dollars more than the last asking price…if you consider upwards of $2.5 million to be "a few dollars."
The reality star put the home for sale was back in 2008 with an asking price of $12 million. In March 2010, after flip flopping multiple times, Sonja pulled the property located at 162 East 63rd Street off the market when the price dropped substantially to $7.25 million. She has just reconsidered the decision and put it on the market again, entrusting Kedakai Lipton and Barbara Stone of the Corcoran Group to get the job done.
The RHONY toaster oven maven has been candid about her money problems and legal woes; yet she's always maintained that she wanted to hold on to her home for the sake of stability for her preteen daughter. While I don't doubt her reasoning for a second, I think that Sonja also desired the stability of knowing she was living in a home that awarded her fond memories and family.
Sonja's ex-husband purchased the townhouse for $9.1 million in 1998. The property boasts five stories, 4,500 square feet, five bedrooms, five and half bathrooms, and a library. The home also includes four fireplaces, a beautiful garden, and a full security system with an intercom. Not too shabby! I am glad to see that Sonja is making decisions that are in her best interest financially, and here's hoping for a quick and hassle-free sale!
