If you watched The Real Housewives of New York last night (Season 5, Episode 2: “Say What You Mean, Just Don’t Say It Mean”) you probably noticed Sonja Morgan flirting with a contractor, Rich Murphy, that she hired to fix her leaky townhouse. Well, that flirtation wasn’t just limited to what we saw on screen, since Sonja has been flirting with Rich over Twitter for the past few days.

Rich started the flirtation on his Twitter (@richmurphynyc) when he declared that he loves RHONY and that Sonja’s both his favorite housewife and “the most sexiest.” Yowza!

Sonja returned the compliment by saying that she “loves” Rich and that she found the flirting “hot” when a fan tweeted a compliment about her skills. Rich responded with “I think I’m in love with Ms. Morgan,” proving that the flaxen-haired socialite really knows how to wind a man around her finger. Maybe the way to a man’s heart is through your carefully crafted toaster oven recipes?

Here’s what we have gleaned about Rich from his Twitter and his time on RHONY. He’s a father (of the “most amazing son in the entire universe” aww), he adores Sonja, and he knows a thing or two about fixing leaky houses. In short: he’s perfect for Sonja! We really hope that this isn’t just an online flirtation.
