Sonja Morgan is a New York City housewife, being a featured cast member since season three.


Before joining the Real Housewives of New York, Sonja was a fixture of New York City social circles. John H. Mariani, author and Food and Travel Correspondent for Esquire Magazine once called her "the straw that stirs the drink."

Sonja is the ex-wife of John Adams Morgan, one of five sons of Henry S. Morgan (whose grandfather founded J.P. Morgan & Company), and descendant of former Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams. The two married in 1998 and had a daughter in 2000.


Season Three

Sonja was first introduced in the third season of Real Housewives of New York.

Business Endeavors

Sonja is known for being industrious and ambitious. She has embarked on many business ventures while on the show. These include:

  • The Toaster Oven: Fellow castmate Heather Tompson, a self-proclaimed workaholic, helped Sonja with the prototype of her toaster oven, which never hit stores. Sonja has, however, provided recipes and tips on her YouTube channel. The infamous toaster oven was even mentioned on an episode of 30 Rock.
  • Tipsy Girl prosecco: Much to fellow castmate Bethenny Frankel's dismay, Sonja also attempted to enter the beverage market with Tipsy Girl prosecco. When compared to Frankel's Skinny Girl margarita and beverage line, Sonja said "Bethenny's is a healthy, low-calorie drink, and I'm doing a full-calorie tipsy drink. I'm doing a regular alcohol. And, I'm different from her. I'm tipsy, and she's skinny."
