How Sonja Morgan Overcame Her Doubters
The 'RHONY' star reflects on launching her clothing line.
Many critics may doubt Sonja Morgan's business savvy—but she's firing back at her haters thanks to the launch of her new fashion line.
Last month, the Real Housewives of New York City star launched her ready-to-wear collection of gowns and jewelry at an over-the-top party and show in New York City.
Now, the model and entrepreneur is reflecting on her career milestone—and those who think she'd never achieve it.
"Some people in my circle doubted it ever existed," Sonja says in the latest episode of her podcast, Sonja in the City with Sonja Morgan. "My backers will verify that it very much does exist. Or they wouldn't be banking it. I put in alot of sweat equity."
Sonja went on to give details about the whole production. And while she says "you couldn't want for anything as far as the catering," the fashion show itself was flawless. "We produced a fabulous fashion show," she shares. "The fashions were beautiful and the jewelry were opulent. We had over $3 million dollars in jewelry, diamonds and gold."
As she gets ready for her return next season on The Real Housewives of New York City, the devoted mother is taking some much-needed R&R: she's off to Phuket, Thailand with her daughter for vacation.
"There's a handful of people on the beach....they have villas," she says of her upcoming trip. "My girlfriend happens to have a beautiful villa there. She's decorated it from top to bottom in pink. Our favorite color!"
