Sonja Morgan Podcast: She Spills Tea About Drama At A #RHONY Fashion Show

Sonja Morgan

It’s countdown time to for the debut of “Real Housewives of New York City.” If you’ve been wondering what our girl, Sonja Morgan, has been up to, she has a weekly podcast, “Sonja in the City,” spilling the tea on fashion, business, and her personal life, both past and present, all with fresh honesty.

We tuned in for one of her shows to see if Sonja is as fun on a podcast as she is on TV. The verdict: she is! Sonja welcomed, Terry Mera, the designer for her clothing line, Sonja Morgan New York Brands, who described the collection for the “independent, modern woman.”

Sonja and friends dished on behind the scenes drama from Sonja’s first fashion show, and can we say, hopefully the cameras were rolling for RHONY. Apparently, two girls in the front row were fighting but Sonja said she only heard about it and didn’t actually witness it. Another misstep was when one of Sonja’s interns forgot to put the guests’ names on the chairs so everyone would know where to sit. Ten minutes before the doors opened, Sonja had to save the day and handwrite them, delaying her own hair and makeup.

One of Sonja’s favorite moments during her fashion show was when she “looked at my kid in the front row, she was so thrilled and so proud of me.” The other fav moment was how excited the models were about the collection and stayed after the show to celebrate with her.

In addition to clothing, Sonja has other lines as well, including jewelry. She said, “Some girlfriends were not so supportive, being kind of catty.” Anyone we know? Doesn’t matter, Sonja will certainly have the last laugh.

During the one hour show, Sonja also spoke about gaining ten pounds (she’s a size 4), working out with her trainer (when her trainer isn’t jet-setting with famous clients), partying on a yacht (27 of them to be exact) for the millennium, and how she’s “going through such a hardship but (has) so much to be grateful for.”

Sonja ends her podcasts with a weekly “Sonja-ism.” This particular week was in reference to working out: “Here’s to getting back to being light, tight, and right.”

Words to live by!

    Hope Sonja has finally gotten her chit together, not only for her sake, but for her daughters sake. Used to like Sonja but she started to be a complete & total wreck 24/7 & it was getting unbearable to watch.
    All these people on these shows need to lay off the alcohol & or pills. It seems all they do is drink. & drink to excess. I honestly don’t know anyone who drinks as much or as often as they do.
    Does anyone know anyone, (Over the age of say 30?), who acts like these people in real life? (Not counting 20 somethings, since your 20’s are basically when you have your life experiences. Where you discover & find your learning curve. Where you do experience all this fun & drama & messiness.)

      Must be a pr-requisit to be on a Housewives show? :/
      I can’t take many of the HW shows anymore now. Did like them when they first started tho.
      Even Chats knows when to lay off the sprinkles! 😉

        Howdy-hey Twi. Happy Monday.
        LMAO! Right? Same here. I used to like them too. I thought of it as an escape from the daily grind. When it first started it used to be fun & the ladies have used to have fun, but now it’s all drama, all the time. Quite tiring.
        & they all drink to excess. Not into watching sloppy or angry drunks. Never was something I found entertaining in the least.

      Hi TL! I hope so too as she has been such a mess – I often couldn’t watch and would end up changing the channel. I didn’t even bother to catch later airings because she was just so out there. Desperate, pathetic and living in a world in her mind. Honesty was the last word that came to my mind when it came to Sonja. Don’t know about a clothing line. So many out there and nothing that distinguishes most of them.
      Anyway, I agree, too much drinking on these shows and it’s seldom a good look for any of them. Agree too, that more are popping pills other than BG and KR. I don’t know of anyone who behaves like these people, at this age, or any age except maybe for 20 something’s. When this franchise first started it sure wasn’t this way. Now it’s getting tedious and predictable. I used to find it a fun break.

        Hiya G! Hope you had a lovely holiday weekend.
        Same here. It was sad to watch Sonja like that. Especially knowing she has a little girl. What a poor example she is/was setting for her. I’m not saying parents can’t go out & have fun. Maybe overindulge sometimes, but it seems like it’s at least every single weekend if not a daily occurrence with these people. What happened to having a good tome? One or two drinks at most. You’re feeling nice, having fun. Got a little “buzz” & you’re off dancing the night away. Then going to get breakfast at 3 or 4 am? Good times!
        This? This is way over the top for me. Even in my 20’s Hee-hee!

          I did, and hope likewise for you. Oh Sonja – you couldn’t help but be embarrassed for her. Between her crazy claims, name dropping (continual), interns, financial woes, overall behavior, etc., it was a bad, bad look that screamed “has been.” I see too where her ex is now suing her. Think when she married him at the age he was, she figured she would be the last but how those tables turned. As with you, thought of her child and yikes! As for all of the drinking, etc., for me, it is the behavior of the young and it makes them all look like they are trying to turn that clock back. As you say, have a good time, indulge but not to the point of the 20 year olds. That ship has sailed no matter how much botox, fillers, exercise, surgery, etc. And the clothes – some look very good, sexy when they want but tasteful for their age. But those that keep those mini skirts too short and too much hanging out again looks like they think they have defied time and age. They haven’t. Don’t know if I’ll even try watching this bunch especially with BF back.

    I am excited for the new season. I just hope Heather isn’t villanized this season just to make sure Bethany is seen as the lesser of two evils. Hardly any clips of the new woman Dorinda. Curious to see what she brings to the show.

      I like Heather and dislike Bethenny. I am sure they will butt heads but Heather can give as good as she gets so it will be interesting. I hope Carole doesn’t compromise her BFF friendship with Heather over Bethenny. We shall see
