We know a lot about Sonja Morgans life on Real Housewives of New York and her messy divorce from John Morgan, but we surprisingly don’t know that much about Sonja’s life before she became Mrs. Morgan.

NBCUDirect sat down with the beautiful blond Housewife for their special “Rink Drink” series where they talked to her about her life growing up in unglamorous upstate New York.

“I grew up in the country, [in a] very wholesome family,” Sonja says. “I was one of four children, my mother was single. And she instilled a great work ethic in me and my siblings.”

Sonja also revealed the surprisingly humble job she worked after graduating from FIT. Watch the video to find out what Sonja did before she became super glam!

Watch the whole interview below.

The Real Housewives of New York Season 5 Reunion airs on Monday, October 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
