An Ode To Sonja's Townhouse: Thanks For The Memories

Even though the ladies of the recent RHONY reboot are doing a fabulous job of looking chic while stirring up downtown drama, nothing will replace the glory days of the original housewives that made us fall in love with New York. Sonja Morgan and her infamous Upper East Side townhouse, The Morgan Manor, was a home away from home for RHONY stans and her staff alike. A moment of silence for Sonja’s interns who had to do a lot of quirky work to keep her historic home that aged faster than her Morrocon football team afloat. The interns poured water into Sonja’s bath to keep it hot, organized a dog funeral for Sonja’s globe-trotting fur baby Milo, and cleaned up pet hamster guts when the cats got to it.

When Sonja joined the show in season 3 she was already divorced from her billionaire husband John Adams Morgan (of Morgan Stanley if you’re new here) and raising their daughter, Quincy. It was a palace fit for a queen, which Sonja dressed up as more than once. Who could forget her masquerade ball where she got glam in The Townhouse and later realized she was “missing half her costume!”

Sonja had been trying to sell her house for somewhere in the neighborhood of 9 million dollars since before we met her in 2008, and her failing to do so while cyclically dropping the price was a frequent storyline throughout her journey on RHONY. This was a lucky break for her friends when they were between places. LuAnn and Sonja were like Bonnie and Clyde when Lu crashed in Sonja’s guest quarters in season 8. Tinsley had more of a bumpy ride the season after when crashing in Quincy’s room, somehow morphing into a surrogate daughter living under Mommy Sonja’s strict no-boys-allowed rule.

Cocktails by the koi pond, tea time in the kitchen, washing her finest lingerie in the bidet. Ahh the memories. We never thought they would come to an end but hold onto your Tipsy Girl Cocktail, the Morgan Manor has finally sold 16 years later! We have all the details of Sonja Morgan’s townhouse sale below.

How much did Sonja’s townhouse sell for?

While the final sale number has yet to be released to the public, the last reported bid on the auction website was around $4 million. Sure that’s only half of the original 9.1 million dollars they bought it for, but do you know how many trips to St. Tropez Sonja can take with 4 milli in the bank?!

Who bought Sonja’s townhouse?

The house was sold under private auction, so the buyer reveal is TBD but I do have one ridiculous favorite guess. Maybe Frenchie bought it for Sonja, to win her love back, after all these years? Or, I wouldn’t put it past Heather Holla Thompson to sell enough spandex to buy Sonja’s townhouse as revenge for leaving her in the “freezing cold foyer” that one time before their trip to Atlantic City.
