Sonja Morgan has pulled her Manhattan townhouse off the market after eight years without an offer.
The 57-year-old reality TV star wrote off the property last week after it was put back on the market last summer for $ 8.75 million after a major makeover, according to an article published Tuesday by the New York Post.
The Upper East Side house was featured on The Real Housewives Of New York City and was initially listed in 2013 for $ 9.95 million while Sonja was going through a divorce with JP Morgan heir John. A. Morgan.

The price of the five-story residence had already been reduced to $ 7.2 million when it was listed in 2015.
Sonja also tried to rent the townhouse in 2018 for $ 32,000 per month, according to property records.
The townhouse was back on the market after being renovated, but no buyers could be found after a year despite New York’s vibrant real estate market amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
“At this point, this house is nothing more than a financial drain, an emotional drain,” Sonja said last year in RHONY Season 12.
