Sonja Morgan: Don't Call her White Trash

Recommended Posts


I've thought for a long time that Sonja was a desperate woman in many ways. To me, this just proves it. He needs a good shower, good shampoo, good haircut and some decent clothes. Who believes, besides me, that he's hooked up with this sad older woman for all of the publicity it can bring him for his "future career"? Wonder what her daughter thinks of this latest escapade?

I would be surprised if he sees Sonja as a sad older woman. Sonja is a very attractive and sexy woman. I'm sure she pleases her partner. Sonja is in it for the fun, ego stroke and hot sex. I would imagine the young man is in it for the exposure, career opportunities and the hot sex. I do feel for Sonja's daughter, I would think having a very public cougar mother could be embarrassing for a young teen.

Haven't passed by Sonja's townhouse in a while cuz I stopped taking the subway for a bit.  But I just passed by tonite.  Kinda weird.  The place was totally pitch dark.  And yet all of her windows on the second floor were wide open.  Er, huh?  It's kinda cool out tonite & there were curtains (looked like some kind of fraying drapes) blowing thru the wide open windows.  Well, it is Friday nite.  I'm wondering if Sonja was in such a hurry to rush over to Beautique & get those available rentboys before sex addict Lu grabs 'em all first & wears them out in the restrooms there, that the poor thing forgot to close her windows.

Has Sonja hosted anything at her home since Season 4?

 

She's prided herself on being the hostess with the mostest, yet I'm racking my brain to think of something she's hosted at her townhouse since the bankruptcy became public. Sure, she's had people over here and there, but some of the visits took place outside (Aviva and Cody, Kristen and the facialist).

 

I think I may have said this before, when Scoobs has mentioned passing by and seeing open windows…I'm surmising that Sonja's got a big mildew issue. She sustained a bit of water damage during Sandy (it was shown on camera) and I bet she never had any work done to take care of the damage…or, maybe she did and the damp smell still lingers. (Hence the open windows.) The fact that she hasn't had any parties at the townhouse makes me think the townhouse is in worse shape than we realize.

Passed by Sonja's townhouse Friday nite & man, it's been sooo cold here, I was glad to see her windows were finally all closed.  Lights were on in the windows on the 3rd floor.  But the rest of the place was pitch dark.  So maybe Sonja was . . .  er, "entertaining"?  Made me feel a bit sad for her cuz all the other townhouses on the block were totally dark.  Guess the fancy rich peeps with dough ain't in the city now.  Poor Sonja.  She is out of bankruptcy, but that doesn't mean she has spare dough to travel.  Well, maybe Satan Andy gives her enough dough for her to throw at the rentboys at Beautique.  Guess it could be worse.  At least she still has the townhouse.

 

Btw, there is major construction going on right across from Sonja's townhouse.  The street in front is reduced to one lane & there are cars honking at all hours.  It must be noisy as heck all the freakin' time.  Sounds awful to me.  Poor Sonja.  Hopefully those rentboys are keeping her entertained.

This little blind item popped up in late October.  It would explain so much.  Her behavior, no A/C at her house, dating out of her peer group, etc

 

BI:

Before getting a contract offer, this east coast Housewife is being told she will have to go to rehab first for her coke problem. Sonja Morgan "Real Housewives of New York City"

No, Sonja! Even with her aforementioned issues I would have given her the benefit of the doubt, but I can't now that this is coupled with that Brandi/Kristen story.

If true, this is so sad.

This was in Daily News yesterday-

 

http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/confidential/sonja-morgan-rhony-pals-skip-party-article-1.2440853

 

I haven't reported sightings of Sonja's townhouse lately cuz honestly it's really depressing.  The street she's on (63rd) is going thru terrible construction & it's an absolute mess.  There is scaffolding all around her townhouse.  Looks like the townhouse next door is going thru major renovations.  And across the street, on the corner, looks like some kind of building project, that will surely take years to complete, is just starting.

 

Poor Sonja.  But at least she got another cover -- for yet another magazine I've never seen or ever heard of.

Sad to see the franchise is going business only.  it was too heavy last year in the business department so of course they will do even more of it this year.

Sonja has spent a lot of time mocking other people (Cindy Barshop, even though she wasn't much liked; Kristen, and commenting on Josh's douchebaggery in a cruel way).  She's just a mean coke whore.  There's nothing more to her.  She's all buzzed and flitting around parties until someone dares point out she milked a rich dick for her career, or that her businesses (which sound like they were invented during a series of benders) might be less than functional -- and no one said anything much about her cracky businesses until she was filmed slamming their businesses and snarking about things being 'for the masses, not the classes.'  

 

Her poor daughter.    Her dad's super old compared to her peers, and her mom needs a snatch guard and Hazelden.  Not fun.

For anyone who cares, passed by a few nites ago & there is still major construction going on all around Sonja's townhouse.  In fact, the sidewalk in front of her place is completely blocked off.  Anyhoo, all of her windows were closed, but lites were on everywhere.  Maybe she's filming for the show now?

What part of Manhattan is her neighborhood in?

It's on the Upper East Side, or Lenox Hill.

 

ETA: Just found this on curbed:

Just down the street from Michael Feinstein's awesome townhouse sits a far less fortunate specimen: 162 East 63rd Street, the single-family elevator townhouse belonging to Real Housewife Sonja Morgan. For some unfathomable reason, Morgan and her Real Workhusband (now ex-husband) John Adams Morgan, a descendant of J.P. Morgan, paid $9.1 million for the 4,500-square-foot house—un-renovated—in 1998, which was not a year when most people were paying nine million dollars for an un-renovated 10-room townhouse next to a parking garage.

I wonder how much of it they actually renovated?  Because unless she had two entire frats as live in interns, that place got real dated and worn real fast.  Wear and tear can quickly get out of control, but I remember when Luann was there to visit and we saw several rooms; the most I think we have seen of the entire place.  And some of it looked really really shabby.

Talk about shit hitting the fan! Wonder if Sonja is still part of RHONY? This angst should help beef up the viewership of the show.

You know Reba McCintire's (sp?) song "Fancy" came on the radio.  If you have not heard it, it is delightfully horrible.  Anyway, the song is about a dirt poor girl whose mother advises her to use her looks (basically prostitute herself) to move up in the world.  For some reason the song reminded me Sonya (though I have no idea if she was raised in poverty).

 

There is even a line about her "posh New York townhouse flat".

My DVR caught about two minutes of the beginning of Khloe Kardashian's show, and Sonja was on. Wow, she remains deluded. She said she has a new wine out called, Tipsy Girl, but her "girlfriend" Bethenny didn't like the name. Sonja said even though her "partner" trademarked the name a year ago, she's going to have to change it so her friendship isn't damaged. She added that she loved drinking this wine because she grew up drinking Rose in St. Tropez.

"I wanna work. I just wanna work", she said, as she described her decades of restaurant work, and her Sonja in the City catering business.

Someone needs to tell Betthhenny that she doesn't own the word "girl".

Just like the product line Skinny Bitch does not own the word "skinny".

Gah!

Wait.  Her "Sonja in the city catering service" ?!  What the what?  When was that?  When the hell was she catering?

Color me confused.

But here 'tis. Her last blog post was June 2015.

And I don't see Darren Starr contesting her "in the city, Betthhenny.

So the fashion business we had to endure last season is to the wayside and we have her being a party planner/caterer.  Based on her having attended or thrown a few parties and asking 'how many are in your party? '  What's next?  Yacht charter captain?

Sonja has had a "lifestyle" website blog thing whatever it is, that features her hostess tips and catering accomplishments, pretty much since she started with the franchise. She's about as accomplished as Yolanda. Which is to say not at all.

Do you remember a couple of seasons ago when we were shown Aviva & Reid's anniversary party?  The one with no food and that embarrassingly bad band? Yeah..."Sonja in the City" was responsible for that mess.

I think there is a lot more joie de vivre in Tipsy Girl than Skinny Girl.  Coke is more fun to be around than Adderall.

Yep.  On the SS Dead In The Water...

 

Ha!  And here I was thinking Below Deck: Manhattan Day Cruise.   Though I was also imagining a drunken bottomless Sonja in a captain's hat at the end of the opening credits slurring "Below Deck!  Get it!  Below. Deck....it's play on words....It's my vagina" following by her falling overboard.

 

I either missed the Aviva and Reid anniversary party or my need for a certain level of mental health had me blank it out completely.

I checked out Sonja's clothing site, and it looks like they must be winding it down.  They never added new product to the rather limited offerings in the original line (maybe a couple bathing suits, or some of the jewelry, but most of it is the same clothing offered a year ago), and at this point, about half of it is marked "sold out."  The rest of the clothes are on sale for half off.

I saw that! While I don't doubt that Sonja's a handful (I think these interns are more "minders" than anything and she relies on them WAY too much to do very non-interny things), I find it curious that she quit once and then went back. I've interned for college credit before and it's generally a semester-long gig...not three years! I'm assuming this was unpaid, too. I wonder if Sonja kept luring her back with promises of fabulous people she'd introduce Rachel to, how she'd expand her network, travel to St. Tropez, etc.

A friend and I always joke that we would want nothing more than to be one of Sonja's interns, if not just for the lunacy of being around her. But in all seriousness, I'm shocked she's never been reported for her "business" practices. A lot of those kids don't even appear to be in school, which negates the point of an internship. I'd be very shocked to learn her internship program is on the up and up.

I really don't think/believe Sonja has any arrangement with a college/school, I think she gives these kids (students) free OR most likely cheap room/board while they are in school as long as they "intern", aka "work", for her. I think that is why some of these kids go back even though Sonja is nuts to work for, it is cheaper than paying rent in some 5th floor walk up closet/room at schools that don't have student housing. LOL

Do they live with her? I remember her mentioning once that one of them lived in his parents' NYC apartment or something like that. She has a nice place for NYC but I don't think she's taking in strays. If that's the case then I really want to be one of her interns.

I think some of them do live with her or that was the impression I got. She has said that she knows some of their parents but not that these parents live in NY. Of course, I could have missed her saying that. Also, she has never mentioned the name of this school or what class/degree these kids are in to qualify for an internship position. She has been very, very vague about the entire thing and quickly changes the subject when asked about it. LOL

I'm not about to dig through five seasons of this show to find the exact episode, but I believe one of the kids was living in a NYC apartment that his parents own as a second property. He was Swiss or French I believe. Now that I think about it, I do recall she referred to a bedroom as the "intern's room" but she has 2-3 at a time so I'm not sure she's housing them all. It really doesn't matter though, room and board don't justify unpaid work. 

 

I hire assistants and interns on occasion so I know that it's messy business. Anyone can do it as long as their school offers an internship program and approves the job. It's basically like independent study but after the Black Swan lawsuit, we've all buckled down and most of us pay interns min wage to avoid backlash.  Everything about Sonja intrigues me but this internship program is fascinating. Where do I apply?

I've mentioned that before but she seems to have them off season so probably not the answer. Sonja's interns are quite the mystery.
