Sonja Morgan Real Housewives Of New York

When Season 13 of Real Housewives of New York premiered, we once again saw Sonja Morgan living in her town house. It had been rented out before the pandemic hit, and Sonja had tried to sell it several times.  But never fear–Sonja has interns, whose duties include drawing Sonja a bubble bath. That town house needs to go.

Sonja hosted a brunch for the RHONY ladies. Leah McSweeney brought newbie Eboni K. Williams with her. Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps, who have somehow become besties, confronted Sonja about not being in contact with them all summer. It is obvious that Sonja is going through a lot.

WHAT ARE WE DOING HERE WITHOUT DORINDA? As sad as it will be to not have Dorinda Medley anymore, it’s still exciting to have the Real Housewives Of New York back again. They make everything feel right in the world. This will be their first pandemic season, so hopefully they’re still bringing their A-game. This season will also mark the debut of Eboni Williams. She makes history as the first black cast member on RHONY. Historic!

What will the dynamics be with a cast this small? Somehow Ramona Singer is still kicking as the longest running full-time New York housewife. She’s teasing some epic drama this season as well between Leah McSweeney and a returning Heather Thomson? The anticipation is too much to find out who allegedly assaulted Heather! Could you imagine coming back to the show only to be assaulted? This season has the potential to deliver in every single way.

Andy Cohen

This week Andy Cohen gifted fans with news of a “Bravo Kids” special that will be featured on an episode of Watch What Happens Live. The special includes Gia Giudice, Frankie Catania, Albie Manzo and Chris Manzo from Real Housewives of New Jersey, Brielle Biermann, Riley Burruss, and Kairo Whitfield (THANK YOU) from Real Housewives of AtlantaAvery Singer and Victoria de Lesseps from Real Housewives of New York City, and of course OG kids Briana Culberson and Shane Keough (YES) from Real Housewives of Orange County.

The “kids” featured in this special all grew up on TV and probably had zero say in showing their awkward years on camera for millions of people. So, this could be awesome! While the show features our favorite Bravo kids, there are some noticeable names missing. Yolanda Hadid’s daughters, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid are probably too busy being supermodels to show up on WWHL. But what about Kyle Richards’ daughters? Or Lisa Rinna’sNene Leakes’ kids? Or Jill Zarin’s daughter? Something tells me they’re dying to be included – and Andy has hinted as much without naming names.

Sonja Morgan Latino Show Magazine

Real Housewives of New York‘s Sonja Morgan celebrated her Latino Show Magazine cover last night. By her side was her new boyfriend Dominik Persy. Sonja and Dominik have been dating for roughly two months now.

About the 24-year-old model, Sonja said, “He has an Old World charm. He’s worldly, well-traveled, elegant. He is very well-dressed. He has a dandy style, which I like — very European!”

In addition to Dominik, Sonja‘s daughter Quincy Adams Morgan and Sonja’s RHONY co-stars Ramona Singer and Kristen Taekman showed their support. Rumored new Real Housewives of New York star, Dorinda Medley, was there as well. In the magazine, Sonja showed off her new Sonja Morgan New York fashion collection, which is set to debut Spring/Summer 2015. The collection will include ready to wear, sportswear, evening wear, and swimwear. See photos from the event, as well as a close up of the cover, below.

We all know Sonja Morgan as the flamboyant, confident, fur hat with yoga clothes wearing housewife who has a taste for luxury on The Real Housewives of New York. Sonja, whose money struggles has been highlighted this season, is now opening up on her unfavorable situation and what she plans to do to get out of it.

Sonja, who was forced to file Chapter 11 bankruptcy after being sued for a failed movie venture, reveals to the NY Post that her never-ending divorce is adding to her financial troubles. She states, “I’m sure the world thinks, ‘Sonja doesn’t have to worry, she’s got that husband there for her.’ But I’m on my own.” The absent husband she is referring to is her ex, 80-year-old John Adams Morgan, who, according to court papers filed by Sonja, owes her a $3 million divorce judgment and over $300,000 in alimony.

Sonja, 47, also claims that her ex-husband, whose family tree includes J.P. Morgan and President John Adams, has prohibited her from using, visiting or selling the properties the couple still co-owns. For someone who lives on his own private $19 million island, Sonja feels her ex is being a tad stingy. Because the divorce remains unsettled, Sonja fears she will have to sell her $6 million Upper East Side home featured on RHONY. Through his attorney, Adams Morgan tells his reason for the delay in payment. He believes the divorce judgment exceeds the amount he promised to pay in pre and post-nuptial agreements, and he is appealing the judge’s order.

A source also tells E! News that Sonja, who earns $275,000 a year from RHONY, is “devastated” and hoping she can keep the home for her daughter. “She wants to sell it back to her ex husband, so she can make that money off it and her daughter can live there, but he’s refusing. She wants to keep it for her daughter, but it seems she’ll have to sell it and lose it altogether,” states the source.

Meanwhile, Sonja has a plan to get back on track financially, and that plan includes emulating former Housewife cast member Bethenny Frankel. Sonja tells Popeater, “I’ll be like Bethenny. I’ll do the deals first, then the baby, then get married. Bethenny is funny as hell. I enjoyed my time with her. I’m going to be on E! Hollywood Story for Bethenny. She’s one smart cookie, and I’m following right behind her.”

Sonja also opens up about the business deals that added to her money woes. “I woke up one morning and decided to be a movie producer. I put a slate of five movies together, and I started Sonja Productions. I had a movie come out with Forrest Whittaker and Gabrielle Anwar, and we got two awards, and it was on a roll. And then one of my movie deals, it was one big misunderstanding, and then they sued me and I wasn’t adequately represented, and I lost. That’s ok I’m a survivor. I’ll be fine. I’ll take care of Sonja. What goes around comes around, and the universe always gives back. And I’m such a giver.”

Of course, as we all know, where Bethenny made her fortune from Skinnygirl, Sonja is hoping to do the same with toaster ovens. More power to you, Sonja! Sonja is pictured above with her daughter Quincy Morgan at the June 29 World premiere of Cirque du Soleil ‘Zarkana.
