What Does Sonja Morgan’s 23-Year-Old Boyfriend Benjamin Benalloul Do For a Living?

Andy Cohen sort of said it best on Watch What Happens Live this week, when he referred to Sonja Morgan as sort of a mix between Little Edie and Samantha Jones these days. The Real Housewives of New York star is definitely playing up her cougar side this season with new boytoy, Benjamin Benalloul, who’s an impressive 25-plus years her junior.

Sonja has remained fairly vague about how she and Ben came to be, but the reality gal seems happier than ever, so who cares! We love seeing the bubbly blonde doing what she does best, enjoying life, this young gun certainly helps. Just one question: What exactly does he do?

During the April 8 episode of RHoNY, Wetpaint Entertainment partnered with Viggle LIVE! to ask users if they knew the answer to that very question, and most of you were incorrect! The majority, with 44 percent of the vote, went with the typical Upper East Side gig of “trust fund baby.” Meanwhile, 34 percent guessed correctly that Benjamin is a real estate developer, and 22 percent thought that he’s an investment banker.

Good to know that Sonja’s man has got his own! While we thought she might be into him because of his looks and youthful exuberance, it probably doesn’t hurt that this one’s got a successful career in his back pocket. With the right hookups (which he surely has), you can make a good chunk of change on real estate development in Manhattan. Luckily, no one will have to rely on Sonja’s still-unseen toaster oven to pay the bills!
