Sonja Morgan doesn’t think her former “RHONY” co-star Barbara Kavovit is the right candidate for mayor of New York City.

“I didn’t think much about that,” Morgan laughed when asked if she would consider voting for Kavovit, who has been running for the city’s highest office since January.

“I mean, I think Barbara has other things to take care of other than other people, you know, that’s just my humble opinion.”

As for what Morgan is looking for in a mayor, she wants someone who’s “strong” as well as “financially stable and not in it for the handshake or the glory.”

“I want someone that really loves this city and that goes for our governor as well… I miss Bloomberg. I miss Mayor Koch. I miss Dinkins,” she reminisced. “We need somebody with gumption and grit. Who’s not in it for the glory or the money or the book deal.”

While it’s unclear if Kavovit, 55, has signed a book deal yet, she did face financial troubles ahead of her television debut for the eleventh season of “The Real Housewives of New York City” in 2019.

Her Wainscott home featured on the show was on the verge of foreclosure at the time, with her explaining the situation as an “unexpected turn.” She said she filed for personal bankruptcy protection in 2015.

The case against her was closed on March 21, 2021, per court documents obtained by Page Six, and her home is now available to rent for a whopping $162,500 per month, according to its Zillow listing.

Kavovit, who owns Evergreen Construction, formally entered the mayoral race as a Democrat in January 2021.

“Well, I have to say, if Donald Trump could be president of the United States, I can be mayor of New York City,” the Bronx-born reality star told us last fall when she was considering her run. “You know, I’m a builder. I know how to build. I know how to rebuild.”

She is among more than two dozen candidates in the race but she is not among the leaders, as she registered no measurable support in a recent poll.

While Morgan won’t be voting for her, Kavovit has garnered the support of current “Housewives” Braunwyn Windham-Burke in Orange County, Margaret Josephs in New Jersey and D’Andra Simmons in Dallas.

While the election will take place in November 2021, Season 13 of “The Real Housewives of New York” premieres on Bravo on May 4 at 9 p.m. ET.
