Lights, cameras, action!
Sonja Morgan and Luann de Lesseps have commenced filming on their “simple life” reality TV spin-off show.
The Real Housewives of New York stars arrived in Benton, Illinois this week where they were greeted by dozens of fans. The two will be in Benton for a number of weeks filming their new reality TV show, which focuses on the difference between city and country life.

Back in June rumors of Luann and Sonja landing their own reality TV show popped up.
At the time a source close to production revealed to Page Six that the reality TV show will take the glamourous gal pals from New York City and move them to Middle America to “mingle with the regular folk.”
“Luann and Sonja of course will be their fabulous selves and each episode will have them interacting with the locals,” the source explained. “They don’t know the locations yet, but it’s going to be somewhere like Kansas or Nebraska, not some hipster Southern town. [Executives] have been holding the locations even from the gals until the last minute.”
The source added that there will be around 10 episodes with some celebrity pop-ins. The show will either air on Bravo or Peacock.
Luann and Sonja are also expected to be a part of The Real Housewives of New York: Legacy.
