Sonja Morgan joined Bravo’s reality series The Real Housewives of New York City in season 3 and is now one of the most famed housewives from that series. She has been featured in the media a lot lately because of her financial troubles, as well as her long awaited fashion line (and toaster oven, but we won’t get started up on that). This socialite turned housewife has put a lot out there after having much of her dirty laundry aired out for the world to see, so there’s not much we don’t already know about Sonja. She’s also appeared on shows like Rachel Ray and Millionaire Matchmaker, but we’ve dug up a few more little tidbits fans of the Real Housewives might not have known about the drinking, cussing, fashionable Lady Morgan! Here’s 8 things you didn’t know about Sonja Morgan:
6. Legal Troubles
Many fans know that Sonja Morgan loves to drink, and she’s often caught drinking a little too much. We’ve seen numerous episodes featuring her drunken antics, most recently last season in Atlantic City! And once again in the newest season of RHONY, Ramona and Bethenny are tackling the topic of Sonja’s drinking. However, what most people might not know is that Sonja has actually been charged with a DUI. This happened after she finished filming her first season, which would have been season 3 back in 2010. Sonja was pulled over in Southhampton, New York at approximately 2:16 a.m. after she blew through a stop sign. She had been partying at a friends house for Memorial Day. When she got pulled over she failed field-sobriety tests, refused to take a Breathalyzer and was subsequently charged and booked for a DUI. Yikes!
