Bethenny Frankel claims that she saved Sonja Morgan from almost getting fired from the Real Housewives of New York during season 10.
“Years later, one of the producers, I will not say who, in the car said, ‘I think we have to let Sonja go,’” Bethenny said on the premiere episode of her new ReWives podcast.
The Skinnygirl mogul that Sonja was a “disaster” during season 10 and was laser-focused on issues at her townhouse and her numerous business projects.
“There was a scene at a restaurant called Cherry, a sushi restaurant, where I just light a match about her and Tinsley [Mortimer],” Bethenny notes.
According to Bethenny, Sonja’s friendship with Tinsley was on rocky ground at the time. It was a year after Tinsley had moved in with Sonja as she joined the season 9 cast of RHONY. However, Tinsley soon got back on her feet and found love with her multi-millionaire ex-fiancé, Scott Kluth. Bethenny claims that Sonja was upset to see Tinsley’s life going so well while her life was falling apart.
“Tinsley started out living in Sonja’s townhouse and was basically a nobody who had been arrested. By up to that point, she had this rich guy sending flowers, and Sonja’s poor and bankrupt. I said something to stir that up, and it lit up Sonja, and she launched, and she did not get let go,” Bethenny continued.
“That is an absolute fact. I have the receipts,” she added, noting that later in the season, “Sonja resurrected herself.”
“The girls, they wouldn’t have cared. They wouldn’t have believed it. But the producers will back it up. A thousand percent,” Bethenny claims but insists Sonja “would totally believe me – she trusts me.”
