Sonja Morgan is officially a cover girl! OKMagazine.com caught up with the Real Housewives of New York star at her party celebrating the cover of Latino Show magazine, where she looks glowing and youthful as ever! But RHONY isn’t the only major project up her sleeve! The 51-year-old has a hot new boyfriend–24-year-old Dominik Persy who she made her red carpet debut with at the event–a hot new clothing line and a few new friendships with the ladies of Real Housewives.
In an exclusive with OK!, Sonja revealed who’s getting along with who this season on RHONY, addressed rumors about those alleged spats (and details about Bethenny Frankel‘s return!) and dished on her soon-to-be-released capsule collection, Sonja Morgan New York.
OKMagazine.com: Congratulations on your cover for Latino Show magazine! You’ve been named the “Ultimate Fashion Woman,” as well.
Sonja Morgan: That magazine Latino Show is international. It’s all about luxury and I was thrilled that they chose me for the cover. The former cover was Miss Universe so I’m very happy about it.
OKMagazine.com: That’s very exciting! You also have your line, Sonja Morgan New York, coming out with a capsule collection first.
Sonja: Right, that will be first and then the full collection will be fall 2015, but you could expect the capsule in summer 2015.
OKMagazine.com: And you wore one of your dresses for the shoot as well?
Sonja: That’s this (twirls around)!
OKMagazine.com: It’s beautiful!
Sonja: I’m just so happy about it. This is Italian silk, it’s classic but it’s sexy. I think it’s timeless, ageless you could pack it in your suitcase and go anywhere.
OKMagazine.com: You’ve been in fashion your whole life basically. What’s been your favorite part?
Sonja: I was a marketing major. I just like that it can inspire people, empower them to get that job or open that door or meet that person you want to meet.
OKMagazine.com: Of course, our OK! fans love you on Real Housewives of New York. So what can you tell us about the new season? I know you’re filming tonight.
Sonja: It’s just so great this season, you know we have Bethenny [Frankel] back we have the other girls fully integrated. We all have real friendships now. We knew each other but I didn’t really know Carole [Radziwill], I didn’t really know Heather [Thomson] that well. I knew her but not that well. So, now we really have real bonds and it’s great to see it unfold.
OKMagazine.com: So no cat fights this season, right?
Sonja: No, we have our love spats I’d say.
OKMagazine.com: And how is your dating life? I hear it’s great right now!
Sonja: I never really have a problem in the dating department (laughs). I have my boyfriend here tonight Dominik [Persy] if we can get him over here. He’s wonderful, he’s just wonderful.
OKMagazine.com: So, everything is looking good for you right now!
Sonja: Yeah, my new collection it’s sportswear, ready-to-wear, swimwear, jewelry, fine jewelry and evening gowns. So I wore evening gowns today and then soon I’ll be looking at my new samples. I have some new samples coming too for the ready wear sportswear.
