Real Housewives of New York Star, Sonja Morgan is known for her crazy antics and party girl ways. Sonja who is NEVER one to turn down a cocktail or a good time recently revealed that she chose to quit drinking in order to appease her RHONY co-star.
Sonja, who doesn’t believe she needed to quit drinking talked with PEOPLE about her life change saying,“I don’t have to drink. I don’t need to drink. I don’t drink at lunch. I don’t drink with my daughter. I don’t drink when I have business the next day. I wish I could say the same about some of my cast mates, because they do have to drink.”
The Housewife who sipped water during her interview with PEOPLE claims her RHONY co-stars have been bugging her for a while to quit drinking.
“What happened was that last year they caught me off-guard on camera in Atlantic City, and [the housewives] never stopped talking about it. So then, I wasn’t drinking Vodka or any hard alcohol – it was just champagne and sipping wine. And that wasn’t enough,” Sonya revealed.
So when season eight came around and Sonja’s c0-stars started criticizing her drinking again she decided to change her ways.
“I came back this season and they started up again with the drinking.And I love to party, I like to get fall-down tipsy but they just wouldn’t let up about it. So you know, I said, ‘I’ll just quit drinking and take the air out of their tires.’ “
Sonja’s co-stars are elated and happy for her and decision to quit drinking.
LuAnn de Lesspes said,“She’s so much better. Just a lot easier to be around.” While Dorinda Medley agrees saying,“She’s more calm. Her skin looks great. I really think I’ve never seen Sonja looking better.”
RHONY newbie Jules Wainstein, who’s known Sonja for years says her pal is doing great!“She’s doing amazing, and that is impressive. She’s never looked better. Sonja is a strong woman and can do whatever she wants to and do it well. She’s hilarious and she doesn’t take life seriously, like I do.”
