AceShowbiz - The upcoming season of "The Real Housewives of New York City" will be different from before, according to Sonja Morgan. The 56-year-old star detailed in an interview on December 10 how the new season would be following the exit of Bethenny Frankel.
Sonja revealed to HollywoodLife.com that the forthcoming 12th season would have "totally different" vibe. Of Bethenny, Sonja said she understood why the 49-year-old left the Bravo franchise. "I'm happy for her," she shared as she elebrated the debut of her eponymous collection Sonja Morgan New York with Century 21 in New York on December 10 alongside many of her "RHONY" costars.
"She made a choice for her daughter (Bryn Hoppy, 9), for her boyfriend (Paul Bernon, 41), I don't want to speak for her," she added. "But she made a choice and I'm happy that she's done that."
Sonja also talked about her event which was also attended by Ramona Singer and Marc Bouwer. "I started the collection to inspire young people that I think have a great future to get where they want to go," she said. "Whether its to get that job or just to dress the part. Even if its just to get into the car and put your hands up like we did at Studio 54 many years ago."
Bethenny was a full-time cast member of "RHONY" during the first three seasons before departing in season four. The Skinnygirl founder returned full-time again in season seven and stayed in the show for the next four years.
She announced her decision to leave "RHONY" back in August. "It's time to move on and focus on my daughter, my philanthropy and my production partnership with Mark Burnett, producing and starring in shows which represent a shift in the conversation for women. With the changes in modern culture, I want to highlight the strength, confidence and unstoppable power that women have," she said.
"My experience at Bravo has been an incredibly magical ride. I am so grateful to them for highlighting my entrepreneurialism and allowing me to pave the way for many women to achieve their goals. I am excited for my future. The best is yet to come," she added.
