“Real Housewives of New York” star and all around delusional crazy pants Sonja Morgan is apparently a boss from Hell!
Sonja’s former intern, Rachel McMahon claims that her ex-boss was a “rude, selfish and insensitive” biotch that basically made her life a total nightmare!
“Yesterday for the fourth time I quit my (non paying) job in a very public way after almost three years,” McMahon wrote on her Facebook.
“Recently my employer, someone who I will always care about and root for has over the last few months, questioned my credibility (despite fighting with someone who questioned it before, and mentioning my qualifications on television), failed to give me feedback or response to a website I was building for her – which by the way I’m not qualified to do – and plenty more.”
Rachel stresses that she’s not seeking any fame from her statements, she’s simply shedding light on the conditions she was put under while working for Sonja.
“She reduced me to tears on more than one occasion, has been incredibly rude, selfish and insensitive – and I stayed quiet. She has bullied those who have been incredibly supportive to her, screaming, yelling. And she lies. She lied about me and revealed a very private element of my life on TV for no reason at all.”
“I put it more delicately to her the first three times I resigned. She doesn’t believe it nor does she understand any of the above even with proof. She professes she has no time. But she’s had time for NYFW, mini holidays, hitting the Hamptons in a private helicopter so it started to get to me when I could not move forward on the website after 4 months and she clearly had time. My time is valuable too. Whatever I do with it.”
“After asking me to remove posts where I spoke of working for her while ill, at family occasions, at 3 or 4am in the morning she got angry. But I will not be censored anymore. To do so is to deny myself self respect and to ignore the love and support of my family who know what it’s been like for me.”
“I’m 30. I’m getting on. I can’t nor won’t put up with shit like this. That job was not my calling but I took it in the hope of making good professional contacts. People have been very supportive although I was called fame hungry by one person. I’ve seen ‘fame’ up close. I don’t want a shred of it. It’s not real, it’s generally pointless and it commands a great deal of hypocrisy.”
“Today I woke up feeling better than I have for a long time and that wasn’t just because House of Cards dropped at 8:01 this morning. I was finally able to say what it’s been like. And a weight has been lifted from my chest. And I want to thank all the people who told me to quit and apologize to them for not listening sooner.”
She closed her statement with a warning to all of Morgan’s future interns saying, “And to those who want my old job, I wish you the best of luck but never give up your time or self respect or take shit from anyone.”
I mean she could have said a lot worse and revealed a lot more. Can you imagine how many times this poor girl has had to pick a drunk Sonja up out of a puddle of her own vomit? ALLEGEDLY!
Anyhoo, Sonja has yet to respond to McMahon’s allegations… she’s probably too busy partying with Madonna and the late “John John” Kennedy on her yacht. [eye roll]
