As Sonja Morgan's journey has unfolded on The Real Housewives of New York City over the years, viewers have been left with a few lingering questions: Will her toaster oven ever come out? What's going on with the townhouse? And perhaps most notably, What exactly do her interns do?

Andy Cohen attempted to unpack a day in the life of one of Sonja's elusive interns during the show's Season 6 reunion. As Sonja briefly explained at the time, "Some of them study fashion [so] they want to learn merchandising and about fashion... One semester they could be learning just to use the Mac and how to schedule. That is a challenge in itself."

However, as we've seen since, the daily tasks for Sonja's interns appear to be even more wide-ranging. In 2019, Sonja showed one of her interns organizing her eyelash sets. "This is what the interns do," she quipped at the time. "Match up my lashes so I have full sets."

On RHONY's May 4 episode, Sonja explained why she adds tasks around her home to the internship curriculum. As she showed her intern, Zoe, how to prepare her bubble bath, she declared, "You're getting a Master's [degree], so you need to know how to do real-life things."

"There is something magical about my internship because you can't learn what I know in the classroom," she added in an interview. "How to load a dishwasher, how to garden, then there's the bubble bath. These are not things you're gonna learn at Wharton."
