On the last season of RHONY Sonja Morgan had told the other ladies that all of her financial problems were wrapped up, but it seems that she forgot that she hadn’t paid her lawyers. After a lengthy bankruptcy, Sonja Morgan had racked up a $350k legal bill with the law firm of Goldberg Weprin Finkel Goldstein LLP. Now it has been revealed that the law firm is insisting on being paid asap, and they have filed suit against RHONY Sonja Morgan.
Fans of RHONY saw Sonja Morgan scrambling to launch a business on the show, and last season she decided to follow Bethenny Frankel’s path by launching Tipsy Girl. Sonja Morgan saw how much success Bethenny had with her company, SkinnyGirl, and so Sonja Morgan tried her hand at pushing her prosecco.
Understandably, Bethenny Frankel did not take this imitation as a compliment, and she pursued legal action to shut Sonja Morgan down. RHONY fans saw Bethenny lay Morgan out on the show. But Sonja Morgan explained that the two companies don’t have the same audience.
“I’m a big, fat, tipsy girl… I have a different market… The very young party girl and a very old party group that just wants to brunch all day, tourists [who] sit around and drink all day.”
Bethenny disagreed, and RHONY Sonja ended up moving her Tipsy Girl enterprise to Connecticut.
