Sonja Morgan Aims to "Commercialize" Herself on The Real Housewives of New York City

by at . Comments

Give Sonja Morgan points for honesty.

When asked by Entertainment Weekly why she's appearing on The Real Housewives of New York City (Morgan debuts tonight), the socialite replied:

"I’m on the show to have a good time and commercialize myself... I’ve been writing my screenplay since the minute my divorce started. It’s very sexy, sort of like a Candace Bushnell society novel."

Somewhere in a meeting with her agent, ignoring her children Kate Gosselin is shaking her head and wondering why a single mother on a reality show isn't using that platform to exploit her kids for sympathy, money and attention.

But back to Morgan. What is her life experience? Will she mix it up with her co-stars? We've excerpted a few responses from her aforementioned magazine interview:

What's her resume? I’ve been working my whole life, started at 14 years old put myself through college, and then I was modeling in Europe, doing the restaurant business, and brokering deals. Then I got married, had a baby. Then I produced a movie, then I produced an art show and produced an art tour. I said, “You know, I think it’s time to highlight my career."

Will she catfight? It’s not my M.O. I love to gossip like anyone else but I definitely don’t want to hurt other people’s feelings. I don’t have a mean bone in my body. I can be very gossipy and fakey like any woman is, and I hope I can keep my composure around the ladies.

What is she like? I don’t want to be cliché and say don’t judge a book by its cover, but there are many layers to me. I’m very down to earth and a good mom. I do my own gardening and floral arrangements and cooking. I’m much more down to earth than you would realize.


I wish sonja would replace jill. finally some with real class and i love the way she carries her self as compare with jill and her big fake smile, just beacuse your husband is loaded it doenst mean you got class jill and ur circle of frinds you are a total wanna be can wait until jill is gone from the show, and i dont beileve people are sinding her gifts to her home and personal phone call from fans as she says she making all that up.

This Sonja lady looks soooo old and washed up. I thought she was in here 60's so I was really shocked to learn she was born in 1963. My mother was also born in 1963 and looks about 15 years younger then Sonja.
