Despite the tension between the two, Morgan sends Frankel off with kind words.

“I’m happy for her,” Morgan told Hollywood Life. "She made a choice for her daughter (Bryn Hoppy, 9), for her boyfriend (Paul Bernon, 41), I don’t want to speak for her. But she made a choice and I’m happy that she’s done that.”

The 'RHONY' ladies seem unanimously support Frankel in her decision and are excited for what the future has in store for her and her family.


Frankel was the epitome of New York City on the franchise. She always was very honest. She told the other ladies exactly what she thought about them without holding back. She was also very honest about her own personal struggles. She shared her most vulnerable moments on the show like her traumatic childhood, struggles with her ex-boyfriends and near-death experience.

Morgan claims that the vibe of the show is "totally different" without Frankel's presence. She also shared her overall thoughts on being on 'RHONY.'


"The thing that shocked me about the show is the camaraderie and how much I love my girls,” she explained to Hollywood Life.

“I mean we can fight like cats and dogs but it’s really like family. Like sisters. There’s like a safety where you can go there because you know you love each other. I’m really surprised at how tight I am with the girls and how grateful I am with those relationships,” she continued to share with the outlet.


Morgan premiered her collection Sonja Morgan New York with Century 21 on December 10th in New York City.

“I started the collection to inspire young people that I think have a great future to get where they want to go,” she said excitedly to the publication. “Whether its to get that job or just to dress the part. Even if it's just to get into the car and put your hands up like we did at Studio 54 many years ago.”
