Real Housewives of New York cast member Sonja Morgan loves the extremes. The 49-year-old toaster-oven entrepreneur divorced her 82-year-old husband in 2008 and has just revealed to In Touch that she's dating a 23-year-old real estate developer named Benjamin Benalloul. For all you non-math whizzes at home, Sonja, with a self-proclaimed sexy "J", is dating a man more than half her age.
But don't worry, guys, "he's an old soul."
[He’s] charming and wise beyond his years. I’m certainly enjoying my time with him. Any girl would love to spend time with him.
Sonja and Ben were spotted at an NYC cigar bar a few weeks ago and sources say Son was acting pretty coy about the relationship. We know from the show that Ms. Morgan has an overly active flirtatious side and isn't afraid to coug out on anyone or anything, so it's no surprise she's set her sights on a guy who was BORN IN THE '90s.
She's the second Housewife of late to date a much younger man. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Adrienne Maloof, 52, divorced her husband Paul Nassif and started dating Rod Stewart's son Sean, 32.
There have been rumors for months that Bravo has been hedging with cast of RHONY, and according to Naughty but Nice Rob, Sonja's still waiting to hear if she'll be invited back for season 6.
Could this new boy toy be a ploy to cinch her spot on the show? The more outrageous the ladies are, the better, and if Sonja wants to be a part of the drama, dating an infant is not a bad place to start.
I would've thought that having anal sex with Jack Sparrow in St. Barths was enough to earn her a solid spot in season 6, but I guess I would be wrong.
What do you think of Sonja's new boyfriend?
