Sonja Morgan Talks Interns, Toaster Ovens, And Ramona Singer “Stirring The Pot”!

OK! Magazine's

Despite personal problems Sonja Morgan just tries to have fun.

As Real Housewives of New York's resident peace-maker, Sonja prefers to focus on the positives of her co-stars rather than start drama. And she really doesn't have time between planning parties, wrangling interns, holding up the walls of her house with old Manolo Blahnik shoeboxes, stuffing Dubins in her toaster oven, and putting on caburlesque performances! Aaaahhh…the life of Sonja Tremont Morgan!

In a new interview with The Examiner, Sonja talks dealing with rude RHONY extra Amanda Sanders, the status of her toaster oven, and of course, her interns! 


In response to Amanda's behavior at the caburlesque show and again at LuAnn de Lessep's BBQ, Sonja dismisses her as looking for attention. 

 "I don't think much of her comments," Sonja explains. "I've seen it many times in my life since I was a young girl It's usually a sign of jealousy and someone who is looking for attention. They usually come out in the wash." Sonja says she stays focused on inspiring and supporting people and that is who she chooses to surround herself with. Case in point – her zillions of interns. #FreePickles 

"The interns are working side-by-side with me because they are here to learn and I get an extra set of hands to help me out while they observe. They are so quick on the computers! I find it so helpful when I need to download something," Sonja shares. "I have to say I'm getting pretty good myself with the social media. I even received a state Senate award for my entrepreneurial use of social media to develop my lifestyle brand. My interns and I get pretty close working side-by-side and we have dinner together every night at six pm to talk about how the day went down. We I invite other people from Team Sonja that we film with so we can all reciprocate and grow together. It's rather gratifying." Right… #FreePickles

In other Sonja ventures, she reveals that her toaster oven isn't dead yet! Oh heavens… 

"When I met with the department store [Macy’s] they let me know that you can't put Sonja Morgan in a Toaster oven box – they want a much more extensive international lifestyle brand," Sonja maintains. "I have nailed down a very concise brand ID and seven beautiful logos. Now at my showroom in the garment district I am meeting with different investors to take it global. That is the goal at this point." 

Finally, Sonja reveals that the drama is just getting started this season and tonight features the return of the formidable Pinot Singer, who launches right into causing problems – and she's not the only one. "We see Heather [Thomson] dis-inviting as she did with Ramona to London and we see Ramona up to her old tricks by stirring the pot and somebody is on to her in this episode! Singer the Stinger."

Sonja reveals she will be making a cameo on another Bravo show as well this week on Million Dollar Listing: New York. "I give Luis Ortiz an 18 million dollar listing!!"


Well, tonight is an all-new episode of RHONY. We'll, of course, be live-tweeting so make sure to join in the fun!
