Sonja Morgan’s internship program is officially closed.
The Real Housewives of New York City star became famous for keeping a rotating roster of interns coming in and out of her Manhattan townhouse on the Bravo hit, but now she says she’s done with them.
“Oh, you know, I really enjoyed my experience with the interns and it was gratifying,” Sonja tells ET. “I needed them, they needed me. But, once I was out of the Chapter 11 reorganization and I had my bank accounts back, and I could -- I can't! It's a lot of work. It's exhausting to be side-by-side with a student all day. You have to check their work and critique.”
Sonja admits it became exhausting to train new people all the time, and she simply doesn’t have the energy to do it. Now, she has a full-time assistant, Connor.
“I have a great assistant now,” she says. “I'm in a different place now, too. I'm not in flight or fight every day. Now, I wanna, you know, collapse and take stock and just relax. I want to breathe now.”
