Sonja Morgan isn’t messing around when it comes to her business aspirations. She wants to have a business and media empire, like that of former The Real Housewives of New York City co-star Bethenny Frankel, so bad that she’s even given up sex!
“I had to tame the cougar in me like a wild circus animal in order to get back to my inner kitten,” she says in the latest issue of Star magazine, out on newsstands Tuesday. “I’m focusing on my business ventures, and I feel independent and secure,” she adds.
She’s tamed the cougar in her because she wants to be more successful than Bethenny Frankel. “[Bethenny] used to tell me that my bathroom was bigger than her whole apartment, but now she’s built an empire. I want my own kitschy daytime show where I can talk about everything from stain removers to Botox. I’ll be bigger than Bethenny, because I’m hungrier than her now,” she explains.
Not only is she keeping her legs closed, she’s keeping her heart closed as well. “The legs are not open! That’s when you get into trouble. The heart isn’t open because I’ve been betrayed so many times. There are men who want to date me just to be on the show and I can’t take any more hurt,” she says.
Only time will tell whether she keeps her vow to stay away from men. Even if she’s able to do that, whether she’ll become the next Bethenny Frankel is another thing altogether. The former Housewife built her business and media empire through sheer grit and determination, something that flighty Sonja Morgan may not have enough of.
