Sonja Morgan is welcoming Bethenny Frankel back to reality television with open arms! On Monday, it was announced that the Skinnygirl mogul would be returning to The Real Housewives of New York City for its seventh season, and fellow cast member Sonja Morgan couldn’t be happier.
“I emailed Bethenny when I saw that Andy Cohen was having discussions with her about coming back because I was very excited at the notion for obvious reasons,” Sonja tells Star, exclusively. “She has star power, charisma, a great sense of humor..and she doesn’t take herself too seriously.”
Besides the attention Bethenny will bring to the Bravo series, Sonja say she also connects with her new co-star on a personal level. “I love the fact that she gets me,” she gushes. “She understands what it’s like to be a divorced mom and she knows what it means to work hard for your money. Nothing has ever been handed to Bethenny.”
“I’m just very excited today to know that she is coming back and I’m sure the viewers are elated,” Sonja adds. “When Bethenny answered my e-mail, she said I would be just fine at the helm, but we will all be much better off with Bethenny on the show. I personally feel like it’s a lot for me and Ramona Singer because we film more than the other girls. Now, Bethenny can take a bite out of that apple.”
