Real Housewives of New York City star Dorinda Medley couldn’t contain herself when she and Sonja Morgan dropped by the ET studios, sharing that her pal has quite possibly found the one.
“Yeah,” Sonja admits. “How do I get into these things?”
Sonja has been the “sexy single one” in the RHONY group since she joined season three, back when most of the ladies were married. Now, most of the women are single and Sonja says she’s ready to settle down.
“I made a list for myself, and my list was for people I could spend the rest of my life with and settle down,” she shares. “Now that things are settled down for myself.”
Sonja simply refers to her new mystery man as “the Frenchie,” revealing to ET that he’s a French hotelier. At 39, he’s 14 years her junior, and meets all the criteria on her list (which includes someone who regularly gets dental checkups), except for one thing.
“I wanted somebody who already had children,” Sonja shares. “He says, 'Oh, I don't need to have children.' But then Carole [Radziwill], always being so sensible, goes, 'Oh, he'll want children! Look what happened with Demi Moore 10 years down the road. They always want children.'”
Sonja calls “the Frenchie,” who splits his time between France and New York City, a “solid citizen” and “fabulous.” He’s also helped her move on from Tom D’Agostino, her so-called “friend with benefits,” who is now married to fellow RHONY star Luann.
“I was just so sad, because I was losing a good friend in Tom,” Sonja admits. “Then Luann made it clear, if I don't put on those rose-colored glasses on with her, I was losing her! So, it was all at once and so fast. But now I feel great.”
Sonja says she, Tom and Luann are “back on track” and “three peas in a pod” now.
