The Real Housewives Of New York star has been plagued by financial issues and accused of living in the past, but Sonja is adamant about hanging on to her last remaining remnant of the Mrs. Morgan socialite lifestyle.

Sonja claims she has financial reasons for staying put this time – and it’s not just her opinion. “I’m not [selling]. I’ve been advised to keep it, because it’s an investment.” Maybe Bethenny Frankel is advising Sonja – since Bethenny is a real estate expert and all. Although, the last time Bethenny tried to give Sonja business advice it didn’t go so well, so probably not.
The townhouse is Sonja’s “biggest investment right now” after selling properties in France and Colorado. She explained, “Coming out of my Chapter 11, I need to hold on for a while.” Last year, Sonja settled a $7m bankruptcy judgement against her, and also a lengthy court battle against her ex-husband.
Sonja previously tried to sell the four-story Upper East Side home for $12 million, then $10 million, and finally $7 million mid-bankruptcy. Earlier this year, she listed it again at $10M, but now she tells ET News that ultimately she’s not ready to move because downsizing is so icky. “You sell when you can buy something more expensive. When you can keep your houses and afford them, it’s the thing to do…we’re in New York. We’re in 10065. It’s the best zip code in the world.”
Yes, “when you can afford them” is the operative phrase. But of course how else would Sonja house her boarding school for wayward former trophy wives?
