Sonja Morgan Announces “Tipsy Girl” Liquor Brand — Did She Copy Bethenny Frankel’s Skinnygirl?

Sonja Morgan raised eyebrows last week when she announced the launch of her ‘Tipsy Girl’ liquor brand. Sonja’s ‘Tipsy Girl’ sounds very similar to her fellow co-star Bethenny Frankel’s liquor empire ‘Skinnygirl.’

‘Tipsy Girl’ prosecco flowed at Sonja’s birthday party last week at Canoe Studios in New York. Bethenny was not in attendance, fueling speculation that ‘Tipsy Girl’ has created additional hostility between the ladies, on top of the existing salary/casting issues.

“Skinnygirl, Tipsy Girl? Sounds pretty similar!” said a source. “Is Bethenny going to take that?”

Morgan’s partner in Tipsy Girl, Peter Guimaraes (linked to co-star Ramona Singer) claims the brand has been in the works for years and the name has been trademarked.

“We got some flack that the name’s ‘promoting drunkeness,’ ” he said. “It’s not — it’s tipsy! You can be tipsy in love . . . tipsy in life.” He added of critics, “It’s hypocrisy. If you pay $18 for a cocktail in Manhattan and it’s all juice, you’re going to be unhappy.”

Guimaraes said the line, will include prosecco, tequila, vodka, wine and “casual retail locations in Hell’s Kitchen, Miami, Chicago and Vegas.”

If you recall on the last RHONY season, Guimaraes was in the restaurant business with Ramona Singer but “there wasn’t a meeting of the minds” and it fizzled.
