Today in Real Housewife Profiles: Sonja Morgan

By Sheer Elegance, GTOG Special Guest Blogger*

I feel like Sonja and I are just getting to know each other, but so far, I likey. She’s someone you’d be psyched to sit next to at a dinner party, and by the end of the night she would be tweezing your eyebrows. She’s confident on camera and she’s not immediately trying to make herself into some ridiculous brand through the show. I’m talking to you Countess, Jewish Mother, Skinny Girl, Ex-Model/Owl Jewelry Design Lady, and Ramona. But she has only been on for half a season, so we’ll see what happens. Eventually the insanity even gets the ones with the best intentions.

Last season Sonja was mostly a nice distraction from the trainwrecks that were Jill and Kelly, and she had to shout above the din to be heard because of all the outdoor voices. But when she did get a word in edgewise, she had a lot of sass, talked about sex and drinking quite a lot, and wore leopard print more often than not. Fun!

She also kept her ten year old daughter off the show, which reads like a classy move but is more likely a legal thing with her ex-husband, who is a son of the son of the son of either the J or the P or both in J.P. Morgan. So yeah, sister’s got some cash, so she maybe doesn’t have to hustle like some of the other girls. But she’s just …. light. And funny. A cool girl without having to try too hard. Though, who knows, maybe even she needs money and soon she’ll be hawking something gross like a line of teeth bleaching trays or girdles for your ankles.

Tomorrow: Cindy Barshop, the newest housewife, who has something to do with Vajazzling. And then, Thursday night it’s SHOWTIME!
