In a new interview with Lifestyle Mirror, Sonja Morgan comes up with an interesting theory for why people love The Real Housewives of New York City.
"If you sign up for reality TV, you have to be yourself," Morgan tells the publication. "People want to see how real people live. It makes people feel like they're not alone in the world."
Morgan adds that she was hesitant to sign on for the Bravo franchise at first because she "didn't know if it was going to be a cross between Jerry Springer and Desperate Housewives."
So why did she finally agree? Because of a 2006 split with her husband.
"I knew at that point my divorce settlement wasn't coming. I needed to support myself and my daughter in our townhouse," said Morgan, referring to the $6 million property in which she resides.
