Real Housewives of New York

Sonja Morgan is defensive

Real Housewives of New York City’s Sonja Morgan is certainly juggling quite a few hats these days. The entrepreneurial diva is reportedly, now scouting New York City Upper East Side locations (of course) in hopes of finding a perfect locale for a restaurant she’d like to name Tipsy according to the New York Daily News.

Ahhh…but wait, Sonja has an ulterior motive for wanting to join the ranks of restaurateurs in the Big Apple…a reality show! An insider who spoke to the Daily News revealed, Sonja has aspirations of becoming another Lisa Vanderpump, the grand dame of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reality show fame. Lisa, who owns restaurants, also managed to snag a successful spin-off show, Vanderpump Rules, based on the shenanigans at one of her West Hollywood posh eateries, SUR. The insider states, Sonja is not wasting a precious minute to get her wheels in motion to pitch her reality show idea and has gone as far as, “hiring a producer and filmmaker to try to make a show based on it.”

bethenny The Real Housewives of New York City’s Sonja Morgan reportedly took a powder to luxuriate at the Canyon Ranch Health Resort & Luxury Spa in Lenox, Mass. to escape the shade that was aimed at her from one pretty miffed castmate Bethenny Frankel. It seems Bethenny, who created her $100 million Skinnygirl low-calorie cocktail line will have some unwelcome competition from Sonja, who has her Tipsy Girl booze line practically ready to roll.

The caflama-filled situation involving the two women has now spilled over from real life to the small screen. It seems Bethenny has arranged a Mexico trip and the adventure will, of course, be fodder for the Bravo reality series. However, Sonja is reportedly fretting that her invite for the trip will mysteriously get lost in the mail. And the invite just might never reach Sonja’s hands.

Heather Thomson was at the top of her game as a New York City businesswoman, so why did she feel compelled to join the cast of a drama-filled reality show like Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City?  The now-former Real Housewife had a sit-down with Forbes to explain her leap from the boardroom to the TV screen.

When Heather joined RHONY back in 2012 she already had a lengthy and quite impressive resume.  She was the founding design director for the Sean “Diddy” Combs label, and had also worked as a stylist with the likes of such A-listers as Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé.  After nearly 20 years in the biz, Heather decided to make some moves for herself.  She had been noticing that there was a dire need for shapewear that was sexy, comfy and “yummie,” so she stepped out on a limb and launched her own line called Yummie, a brand of shape wear that has a patented three-panel system.  The company has now expanded to include bras, panties, denim, leggings, active and the latest and greatest, loungewear.

Love is in the air big time for Real Housewives of New York City’s, Luann de Lesseps.  Reportedly, the Countess is all googly-eyed over boyfriend Thomas D’Agostino Jr. and it is rumored, he just might ‘put a ring on it’ and just in time for the show’s upcoming season.

Luann and Thomas were casual around September but then things really got percolating.  Thomas had also reportedly dated RHONY’s resident kook, Ramona Singer for a hot minute but the pair went their separate ways and there doesn’t seem to be any hard feelings.  Meanwhile, just who is this Thomas with the oh-so-familiar last name?  Well, he is a millionaire and the CEO of Smart Source, LLC, a sourcing company with category expertise in buying, managing and distributing print and promotional materials.  Thomas’ last name is also a well known one particularly on the east coast, according to the scuttlebutt, he has been linked to the famed and long-standing supermarket chain, D’Agostino.

Sonja Morgan Vs. Bethenny Frankel over Tipsy Girl

Last month Sonja Morgan unveiled Tipsy Girl, a new prosecco she is promoting. It was widely predicted that Bethenny Frankel wouldn’t be too happy about the name given that Tipsy Girl sounds remarkably similar to Bethenny’s infamous Skinnygirl line. Now the two former frienemies are locked in a trademark dispute via their business entities. 

Sonja’s business partner, Peter Guimares, dismissed the name similarities and argued that he had trademarked “Tipsy Girl” (two words) months earlier. At the time, Bethenny had no comment on her Real Housewives Of New York co-star’s tipsy business venture, but instead made a move to trademark the name “Tipsygirl” (one word!).
