Bravo's The Real Housewives franchise has found success chronicling the lives of the well-to-do and now the women of the Big Apple are getting a facelift with new additions to the cast.
Sonja Morgan and Jennifer Gilbert will have recurring roles in season three.
Morgan is described as: " a fixture of New York City society, running in social circles that include European royalty and top-notch designers. Having jet-setted around the world and modeled in Paris and Milan, Morgan worked for multiple restaurants across the city as a consultant and manager and often brought in her famous friends to spice up these locales. A single mother of a nine-year-old daughter, Morgan loves art, decorating, gardening, skiing and visiting France every chance she gets – be it for her charity work or just for pleasure."
Gilbert is characterized as a "busy career woman" who owns a corporate and social event planning company called Save the Date. She also co-owns the baby carrier company Portamee. At 29 she was named Entrepreneur of the Year by Ernst & Young and has three children with her husband who she has been married to for seven years.
Production on the new season has begun and will air in 2010. Veteran castmates Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, Bethenny Frankel, Kelly Killoren Bensimon, Alex McCord, Ramona Singer and Jill Zarin will be featured as well.
