Sonja Morgan Talks Housewives, Wallis Simpson and Winter Trends


On the Bravo show "Real Housewife Of New York," Sonja Morgan reveals that running in social circles can be a sassy affair. But it wasn't always cameras, drama and luxury for this reality star. 
Sonja was born in 1963 in Albany, New York. Before becoming a famed Housewife of New York, she grew up in the Berkshires, modeled in Paris and Milan for brands like Body Glove and Diesel, studied marketing at the Fashion Institute of Technology, and became a consultant for various American hospitality and luxury brands. 
Sonja then took her appetite for life onto a reality show by the name of "The Real Housewives of NYC." When Sonja was invited to join the cast of "The Real Housewives of New York City" for Bravo, the sassy 47-year-old was set to become a star. On the reality show, Sonja tries to express that luxury has no price tag and any of us can live on the wild side, no matter the price tag.
