Meet Real Housewives of New York City’s Newest Cast Member, Sonja Morgan

April 18, 2010 07:00 AM by Nancy Floyd


A new housewife was introduced on Thursday’s episode of Bravo‘s The Real Housewives of New York City. Sonja Morgan is a wealthy single mother who lives lavishly, loves men, and doesn’t shy away from plastic surgery. Keep reading for more details on the newest edition to the reality show…

Sonja Morgan is the newest member of the cast of Bravo‘s The Real Housewives of New York City. A longtime friend to cast mate, Ramona Singer, the wealthy single mom (she has a 9-year old daughter with ex-husband, John Morgan, heir to JP Morgan) originally turned down an offer to appear on the reality show. “The show had reached out to me, but I was too chicken. I was freshly divorced,” she says. But when she saw the opportunities opening for the other housewives, she was a little envious. “I saw how well the girls were doing and they were blossoming. LuAnn and Ramona were totally renewed. I even saw Alex metamorphosing. They’re having fun, writing books, making appearances. I wanted to do that.”

Sonja Morgan agreed to appear on this season of Bravo‘s The Real Housewives of New York City but fortunately she wasn’t a stranger to the cast. One housewife in particular goes way back with Morgan. “Ramona and I knew each other when we were single — working out together on 61st Street — when we bought our first apartments, first fur coats (back then it wasn’t so bad). Then we both got married and had children,” says Morgan. Since then, “I haven’t seen her that much. I don’t see her on my scene in Gstaad, or in St. Tropez.”

Despite being open about getting plastic surgery (“Oh God yes, I do it all!” she says), Sonja Morgan admits that she didn’t primp before appearing in front of cameras on Bravo‘s The Real Housewives of New York City. “I never looked at myself on camera when we were shooting,” says Morgan, 46. “I didn’t want to be self conscious. The other women get blowouts and full makeup just to sit around at their apartment while filming. I did my makeup on camera. I wasn’t afraid of that, but I did avoid watching the footage [because] I’d just be paralyzed.”
